1D Rebranding and Eventual Reunion: GP vs. Fandom Perception
So I’m seeing a lot of tension an unrest over the way that the members of 1D, Harry in particular, are distancing themselves from the band as they embark upon their solo careers (ie, Harry, or whatever intern runs Harry’s sm scrubbing his twitter clean of 1D mentions). I know people are anxious about this, and I understand that anxiety, but I want to offer a different perspective: I think this could be a good thing, not just for their solo ventures, but for 1D as a whole. Hear me out on this one, long windily and under the cut.
I think that’s why I loved her. I fell in love with how she loved; how she was so passionate about what she did, or rather how passionate she was about life. We often question what we need but it isn’t what we need, it’s what needs us. Without passion we are naught, an empty vessel that simply exists for mere observation. Without passion it’s almost as if we don’t exist. I think that’s what we all must find in what seems like a perpetual existence. We must find something to be passionate about. I found passion when I found her, but she was already passionate about someone else.
” It is difficult to speak adequately or justly of London. It is not a pleasant place; it is not agreeable, or cheerful, or easy, or exempt from reproach. It is only magnificent. You can draw up a tremendous list of reasons why it should be insupportable. The fogs, the smoke, the dirt, the darkness, the wet, the distances, the ugliness, the brutal size of the place, the horrible numerosity of society, the manner in which this senseless bigness is fatal to amenity, to convenience, to conversation, to good manners – all this and much more you may expatiate upon. You may call it dreary, heavy, stupid, dull, inhuman, vulgar at heart and tiresome in form. I have felt these things at times so strongly that I have said – ”Ah London, you too then are impossible?” But these are occasional moods; and for one who takes it as I take it, London is on the whole the most possible form of life. I take it as an artist and as a bachelor; as one who has the passion of observation and whose business is the study of human life. It is the biggest aggregation of human life – the most complete compendium of the world.” — Henry James
I love everything about people: the way they walk, the way they talk, the way they cry, the way their mouth is distorted whenever they do this or say that. It’s always been a passion for me to observe.
Maybe, Possibly, No, Definitely, An Unpopular Opinion
For someone who makes viewers cringe, Paige was certainly spilling some major Truth Tea this evening.
I don’t care if you don’t like her because you don’t want her with Emily because you want Emily with Ali because Paige drowned Emily in a pool and then they started dating and you thought that was fucked when Emily should’ve been with Alison all along…because THIS ISN’T ABOUT SHIPS. It’s about maturity. Which Paige has in spades, while Alison is still playing the victim.
Alison still thinks she rules the world and/or that the world revolves around her. Both of these girls know who they are, and are steadfast in their beliefs. The difference is, Paige literally embodies every facet of a grown up, now. Ali is still playing Kick The Can (or in this case the vulnerable girl who isn’t so vulnerable anymore and instead of being complimented on actual growth she’s chastised for actually GROWING UP wow!)
She’s basically my mouth piece for everything I’ve being saying since Day One. Even Emily “I have no idea what is going on” Fields noticed and called Ali out to the tune of that they “weren’t in homeroom before first period” or something along those lines. And then followed up with “why do you want us to keep proving that we love you?”
There are 10 planets, each one has a meaning and is ruled by one or two signs
For example Jupiter, if you were born with Jupiter under Taurus you are a Taurus Jupiter
If you wanna know what this means you look at Taurus' basic traits and apply that to the meaning of the planet
There are personal planets and Public planets
The personal planets change faster than the public planets and therefore are the base of your personality and will shine more
Here are the planets plus what they mean in your life and how they describe your personality
The sun is ruled by Leo and is a personal planet, it changes every month and reflects your basic personality
The moon is ruled by Cancer and is a personal planet, it changes every 2-3 days and reflects your emotions, moods and relationship with mother
Mercury is ruled by Virgo and Gemini and is a personal planet, it changes every 3-4 weeks and reflects your communication and mind
Venus is ruled by Taurus and Libra and is a personal planet, it changes every 4-5 weeks and reflects your love & attraction
Mars is ruled by Aries and (co ruled) by Scorpio and is a personal planet, it changes every 6-7 weeks and reflects your anger, drive and energy
Jupiter is ruled by Sagittarius and is a public planet, it changes every 12-13 months and reflects your luck, growth and wisdom
Saturn is ruled by Capricorn and is a public planet, it changes every 2-3 years and reflects your discipline, fears & challenges
Uranus is ruled by Aquarius and is a public planet, it changes every 7 years and reflects your change, originality and generation
Neptune is ruled by Pisces and is a public planet, it changes every 10-12 years and reflects your healing process and dreams
Pluto is ruled by Scorpio and is a public planet, it changes every 12-15 years and reflects your power and transformation
there are 12 houses, each house is the home of one sign and describes a different aspect in your life, they can change every 15 minutes and are used in two different ways
The first one is that you have the 12 houses and a sign in each one of them, it describes how you will handle these aspects in your life
The second one is that you have a house in each planet, for example if you're a Taurus Jupiter and you're born while Jupiter was in the 6th house you are a Jupiter Taurus in the 6th house, the 6th house is the home of Virgo, so that means you're a Jupiter Taurus Virgo, its like a second sign but less prominent
And now here are the houses and what aspect in life they rule, you can use this in the first way of houses and how they are used
the home of Aries, this house reflects the personality, the face you show the world and your physical appearance
the home of Taurus, this house reflects earned money and material goods
the home of Gemini, this house reflects surroundings, siblings and studies
4th house/Imum Coeli:
the home of cancer, reflects the family, home, origins and the father
the home of Leo, reflects love, pleasure, children and creativity
the home of Virgo, it reflects everyday life, daily work and health
the home of libra, it reflects marriage, associations and contracts
The 8th house:
the home of Scorpio, reflects passions, transformation, death, and sexuality
the house of Sagittarius, it reflects traveling, higher concepts and spirituality
the home of Capricorn, it reflects social success, careers and the mother
the home of Aquarius, it reflects friends, support and protections in life
the home of Pisces, it reflects enemies, difficulties and secrets
GROUPS,ORDER & RELATIONSHIPS:
In astrology there are different groups and connections between the signs
This shows why the signs are put in this particular order, it shows a pattern
In the lists below I'll also explain how this effects the signs and their personality
Energetic, Inspiring, Leaders, Passionate, Creative
Selfish, Flighty, Impulsive, Short tempered
Inventors, Social, Nice, Balanced, Smart
Superficial, Intuitive, Detached, Scattered
Compassionate, Artistic, Helpful, Sympathetic
Dramatic, Over-Emotional, Controling, Manipulative
Masculine & Feminine:
Masculine & Feminine:
heading forward, pushing the barrier, unaware of emotions, focused on the future, unaware of the things you say and do and the affect it has on people
Feeling deeply, Cautious when it comes to actions and always thinking before doing, caring & especially for the ones you love
Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable:
Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable:
The Cardinal signs are those that open a season (Aries Spring, Cancer Summer, Libra Fall, Capricorn Winter) these signs are known for their strong will, they are forceful and can get aggressive when someone stands in their way, they often start and cause things, they add thrill to the world
the fixed signs are the signs that play when the season is in full working (Taurus spring,
Leo summer, Scorpio fall, Aquarius winter) they are passionate and see it as their duty to keep everything in order, they are known for their ego and how they can be very proud
They add order to the world
The mutable signs are those that close a season (Gemini Spring, Virgo Summer, Sagittarius Fall, Pisces Winter) these are associated with leadership ambition, and being versatile
They often change their expression to meet the demands of other
They add change to the world

Both signs are highly sensitive and have a love for concepts and detail
of course some signs get along better than others, that doesn't say that some signs don't have a chance together, each combination is possible and unique, some just need a bit more dedication
Also YOU CANT BASE COMPATIBILITY OFF OF ONLY YOUR SUN SIGN, there are more signs and of course no one will match perfect with each sign, so that's how you can see where you need to work on in the relationship,
An Example would be if you have a aries sun and the other person a Leo sun (planet of your ego and personality) it would match when it comes down to basic personality traits, because these two signs are very compatible
but if you have a Gemini mercury (the planet of the mind and communication) and the same other person has a Pisces mercury there may be some problems with communication and beliefs because Pisces and Gemini are less compatible
But now I'll explain how I know and calculate which signs are compatible, for this it is important to know the order and groups the signs are in (you can look back at the group part in this article)
the best combination for each sign is one of the same element or the next masculine/feminine sign
For example, lets take Sagittarius (Fire and Masculine) best matches for this sign would be Aries and Leo (also fire) or Aquarius (the next sign after Sagittarius that is also masculine)
Another example is Pisces (Water and Feminine) the best matches would be Scorpio and Cancer (also water) or Taurus (the next sign after Pisces that is also feminine)
the second best combination for each sign is their sister sign or the feminine/masculine sign before them
So again for example Sagittarius (Masculine) their second best match would be Gemini (their sister sign ) or libra (the first masculine sign before them)
Again another example Pisces (Feminine) their second best match would be Virgo (their sister sign)or Capricorn (the first feminine sign before them)
the half/half matches are matches that could work but need some attention and effort.
These are the signs that are ruled by the same planet or are from the same category out of the fixed, mutable and cardinal signs
For example for Taurus libra would be a challenge but still has change of working because they are both ruled by Venus
Second example is Pisces and Sagittarius they are both cardinal signs so it could be possible
Another and last example is Virgo and Gemini, I'd give these a 60% because they are both ruled by the same planet AND they are both mutable signs
the signs that are around the other sign,
So for example for Sagittarius Capricorn or Scorpio would be a hard match because Sagittarius stands between Scorpio and Capricorn on the list
And lastly I'd give 30% to the signs that have nothing in common,
So no same element, no fixed/mutable/cardinal/feminine/masculine similarity, and no same planet
For example Capricorn (Earth/Feminine/Cardinal/Saturn) and Gemini (Air/Masculine/Mutable/Mercury)
DON'T FORGET TO REBLOG IF HELPFUL BECAUSE I DEDICATED A WHOLE DAY TO THIS
As usual: P l e a s e take note that I’m comparing their planet positions and while they do help a lot with understanding how these two work together, it’s not exactly a Synastry. I don’t have their birth times, so this is mostly speculation since I can’t place their planets in actual houses, knowing exatcly what they stand for, and therefore cannot do a proper Synastry.
For the first part of my series about making AP French summer prep fun, here’s a short list of movies that I enjoyed watching through my years of French! I’ve also included some Youtubers as well, because why not!
Honestly, one of the most important parts of the class is keeping yourself interested in the material, so try to find something in the culture you enjoy!
Movies (many are on Netflix!)
Populaire - a film about a young woman who tries to make a career out of her passion for typing
Amélie - a young woman’s journey through her life alone and how she observes the world
Les Choristes- a film about a run-down boys’ school and how a teacher does his best to spark a passion in them through music
Xavier Dolan Films - a variety of films that deal with familial problems, as well as gay relationships throughout
Many other movies, either DVDs or online, have the option to switch languages or even just add French subtitles! Even if it’s a film you’ve already seen, try watching it in another language to see how much you can pick up! That’s how I started!
if your moon is in cancer, pisces, or scorpio, you are a water moon. this means that water signs’ qualities are applied to the moon’s feminine energies. they are instinctual when it comes to people (much like fire moons). those with water moon sign appreciate honesty and things that can be expressed without words.

I know with all my being; that she doesn’t feel the same. But my heart knocks on my chest and shouts: “she’s the one! look at her shine.” And I do. Every second of the day. I watch the way her eyes glisten when I mention something she’s passionate about, I observe her hands and the way she rests her pinky finger on her bottom lip when she’s in deep thought. I swear, her touch stings as if she’s a live flame and I’m a pathetic puddle — but each time, I can’t get enough.
