I just wanted to let a few of you know that if you any of you who are writers of fiction or poetry (or even if you have a gnawing hunger to read more!) you should try Commaful to post your stuff. It’s this really pleasant community of writers who support and actually give back feedback on any work you post. I’ve been there for almost 7 months now and of all my poetry posts, I’ve never gotten one negative comment. I’ve never seen a negative comment on the site period. Each post is like this little slideshow of a book and they’re so easy to make and coming from a really bad place last year mentally with a lingering depression and years of not feeling good about my poetry, I’ve never felt more accepted or inspired until I joined. I hope any who reads or writes like I do checks it out. Commaful.com is so much better for you and your work than Tumblr is.
Also, follow me if you like it and I’ll follow back! I’m wethedreamers there. Come be sad with me and look at my poetry and I’ll look at yours. :)
Holy retrogrades, batman! There seems to be a lot of backwards planets this month, guys!
In the spirit of this upcoming cosmic show, I have decided to whip up a “How to Survive the Retrograde(s)” spread for all you tarot lovers out there!
How to Survive the Retrograde by Mod Sol
1) The Retrograde Ahead This speaks more of the entire period itself (in the case of multiple planets in retro), but can be narrowed down to a specific planet’s retrograde as well; basically, what’s this time gonna be like for you?
2) How to Succeed This is the biggest question of all. How can you make the best of and best succeed during this time? This will be your advice on how to move forward.
3) Obstacles This is what’s gonna try and get in your way, and what you should be mindful of or avoid if possible. Keep your eyes peeled for what shows up in this section!
4)* and 5)* Optional These additional cards are to be placed here in the case of reading for multiple retrogrades. For example, if Mercury and Saturn are retrograding at the same time, 2 and 3 will adhere to the successes and challenges of one planet’s retrograde, while 4 and 5 will represent the successes and challenges of the other planet’s. You can just do one pair for one planet (leaving out 4 and 5 completely), or add additional pairs. It’s all up to you!
6) The Outcome How will you come out of this retrograde period that you’re reading for? This will represent the general climate of how life will be like post-retrograde period.
….And that’s it! I hope you all find this spread useful for the times ahead, and hope you have a manageable and successful retrograde.
Hey there friends since it’s Endometriosis Awareness Month (and also Endo Awareness Week I’m pretty sure) here’s some important info about it:
Endometriosis affects one (1) in ten (10) people assigned female at birth
It’s when the lining of the uterus grows outside in other areas of the body
Its common symptoms are pelvic pain, abdominal pain, lower back pain, heavy/abnormal menstrual bleeding, painful intercourse, nausea, extreme fatigue, digestive problems, and sometimes fertility problems
You don’t need all those symptoms to have endometriosis
Anyone at any age, race, and identity can be affected as long as they’ve started their period
It doesn’t just affect you during your cycle (I’ve been wiped out from this for months now so trust me, I know.)
Many doctors, GP’s, and even gynaecologists don’t know much about it
Halsey, Whoopi Goldberg, Chaz Bono, Dolly Parton, Daisy Ridley, Marilyn Monroe, Cyndi Lauper, Yuki Murofushi, and even Hillary Clinton all have endo
Surgery isn’t the only solution, and birth control, acupuncture and natural medicines usually end up working better anyway
There currently isn’t a cure for it
And remember: heavy and painful periods aren’t normal, they’ve just been normalised. You aren’t making it up or overrreacting, and you don’t deserve to suffer like this.
I know I’m not the first person to say this, but since I’ve become an admin of this network, I’ve noticed this way more. And the irony is that we created this network to promote artists and writers.
You guys simply do not reblog fanfiction posts. Period. Even with art and edits, reblogs are very rare.
need to understand that by only liking the post, it’s like you’re
keeping it to yourself, you’re basically “hiding” something that took
someone a lot of time to make. When we post something to tumblr, we expect people to share it, to spread it, that’s why tumblr is based on a followers system!
And it means the world
to us!! Specially if you add nice tags to it, I 100% guarantee you that
you’re making the artist/writer’s day, and it’s so simple to do it, all
it takes is few clicks.
So I’m actually begging you, if you like it, reblog it!
This applies to every fandom you’re a part of, every original piece you enjoy. Do me a favor and reblog this post.
Don’t let amazing creations fall into the darkness just because it wasn’t shared enough, I can’t possibly try and explain to you how heartbreaking it is.
Wild/Wildling is an upper content Wolfdog that I’ve been waiting on for quite some time. While obviously it’s impossible to predict, he was bred, selected, and will be raised to hopefully become an ambassador animal and do some media work. I’m super excited to start on this journey and will be posting periodic updates here, with primary updates happening on his instagram account (@wildlingwanders).
