positive sign

anonymous asked:

Why is it that some signs, i.e. Cancer, are superior to other signs (popularity wise). Everybody sees their good side but like all signs they have a downside, and everyone seems to forget that. I've experienced some bad cancers and a lot of good ones but it just irritates me that they are always what the ideal person should be. I understand it's not their fault but I feel it is just very biased in astrology. Especially when it comes to how complex someone can be, like any sign can be like that.

I agree with you! Cancers do get a lot of love in the astrology world. It’s all about perspective and the stereotypes that the signs are stuck with. Cancer is a sign with a stereotype of being an emotional sweetheart or whatever and tends to be viewed positively. 

Aquarius is another sign with that I don’t see many people talk about the negatives for. Sagittarius too (besides the fact that a lot of people like to talk about their commitment issues). Maybe Leo??

People will always value particular signs over the others. Everyone has favorite signs and least favorite signs and it’s just the way the astro community works, I guess.

cute things the signs do

aries: say “don’t worry, I got this” while carrying 50 pounds of groceries and someone offers to help

taurus: sleeps with at least one stuffed animal, four pillows, and two blankets

gemini: gets really excited over puzzles/ loves rubix cubes and chess, nerds

cancer: tbh I love it when u shut the fuck up (jk ily) bakes cookies and feeds everyone, makes sure u never go hungry

leo: gets really excited about random little things and yells at u until u at least pretend to be excited too

virgo: makes little adjustments/straightens a crooked picture frame or arranges the flowers in a vase until they look “just right”

libra: always smiling and humming, smiles at animals, birds, strangers, everyone to spread a lil love

scorpio: stares at u but looks away just as u catch them, gets cute/needy when ur alone together and super shy/distant around other ppl

sagittarius: laughs at everything, quick to make u mad but just as quick to awkwardly apologize, demonstrates affection via violent punching

capricorn: makes savage comments with a straight face, acts like they don’t have a sense of humor tho they’re secretly masters of comedy

aquarius: science nerd, loves facts about space/biology/whatever, probably thinks physics is “exciting” 

pisces: can’t watch someone crying without crying too, feels really bad for homeless people and the live lobsters at the grocery store

The Zodiac Signs as Good Things™

Self-love/care: Taurus, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Pisces

Understanding: Cancer, Sagittarius, Aquarius

Success: Aries, Gemini, Scorpio, Capricorn

I always knew Harry had an amazing voice, but this song really showcases his versatility. I’m amazed by how seamlessly he transitions from a soft, raspy head voice, to a falsetto, to full out belting. And let’s talk about the belting!! Because Harry sounds beautiful when he’s quiet and restrained, but Sign of the Times demonstrates that his voice was made to just fucking fly. He has a voice built for rock and hearing him soar over those high notes with full force is just… everything and then some.

A visiting Professor of Linguistics was delivering a lecture.

“In the grammars of many languages throughout the world, a double negative expresses a positive. On the other hand there are some languages, such as Russian and the English of Chaucer, in which a double negative remains a negative. However, there is not a language in the world in which a double positive can express a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up: “Yeah, right.”

What Do the Zodiac Signs Look like When They Smile?*

A shooting star (slow-spreading, mesmerizing): Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn

A firework (sudden, infectious): Aries, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Aquarius, Pisces

*It may be logical to use your ascendant sign here, rather than your sun sign.

What each zodiac reminds me of:

Aries: random sparks of energy, doodling at night, warm coffee, martial arts, meaningful hugs.

Taurus: laughing so bad you can’t breathe, sentimental conversations, pumpkin muffins, music played loud, family reunions.

Gemini: Wikipedia searches, cute faces, extravagant places, house parties, understanding smiles.

Cancer: pancakes, shy appearance, libraries, fantasy books, seashells with pearls

Leo: fashion walks, old memories, stability, black and white photographs, genuine expressions.

Virgo: newly bought books, home interiors, accepting yourself, strange calming songs, owls and trees.

Libra: marmalade, yellow sunrises, free horses, kind gestures, freshly painted walls.

Scorpio: sitting beside a window at night, passionate and intense conversations, surprise gifts, gentle cuddles, smirking.

Sagittarius: hiking, curiosity, rock/alternative music, sculptures, history textbooks.

Capricorn: writing a journal, family dinners, watching your favourite series, silent communication, flowery fields.

Aquarius: clouds on a nice day, sparkling eyes, goofy jokes, debates, extreme sports/skydiving.

Pisces: group projects, foreign languages, humanitarian works, poetry, when your pet(s) sleep beside you.

Typical Traits of Mars in the Signs

What makes us tick? What gets us all fired up? What makes us angry, and how do we express that anger? What do we really desire, and how do we go about getting it? The sign position of Mars reveals much about our basic animal nature—our aggressive instincts, our sexuality, and our drive.

ARIES:

  • aggressive, impulsive, but  don’t live in the past, and are not given to holding grudges or feeling resentful
  • listen to their instincts, make fast decisions
  • irritated by indirectness


TAURUS:

  • generally calm and easygoing people, but powerful tempers when they’re overly provoked 
  • value strength and stability, they are driven by security and an especial fondness for personal possessions
  • slow to arousal, but theirs is an earthy and powerful sensuality


GEMINI:

  • scattered and unfocused, easily bored
  • angry words—some of the most incisive and sarcastic ones— can fly around with the more energetic natives,  draw on their sharp wit to win arguments
  • often express energy through musical instruments and the like—even video games


CANCER:

  • the most passive-aggressive position, seem to resist change and to shy away from direct confrontations
  • at their best, they turn others on with a protective, almost therapeutic way about them
  • have defensive reactions and bursts of emotional agitation when feeling offended


LEO:

  • vital position, passions run high, and so does desire 
  • enjoy the pleasures of risk-taking
  • act with authority and power, and their personal magnetism generally endows them with the ability to get what they want


VIRGO:

  • have a knack for handling a wide variety of tasks at once, and a tendency to take on perhaps too much at the same time, which makes them doubt their abilities. it’s hard for them to deal with it and they might turn into complaining, over-critical nags
  • earthy and sometimes nervous sexuality, shy but open to experimentation 
  • perfectionists at the heart, though they will be the first to deny it


LIBRA:

  • overly indecisive, they feel the need to weigh all of the alternatives before taking action
  • they always play innocent when they are challenged, and can generally charm the birds out of the trees to win your favour
  • never mean but aggression has to go somewhere, so this often results sneaky behaviour and subterfuge


SCORPIO:

  • challenge themselves to do the impossible keeping their cool and their equilibrium on the surface
  • attracted to taboos and feel a certain kind of pleasure resisting their fantasies. also a black-or-white philosophy of life
  • their sexual appeal is strong enough that they generally do get what they want


SAGITTARIUS:

  • when they get angry, they feel like running not knowing how to deal with their aggression, this is where their restless and adventurous nature comes in
  • playful and fun-loving, they love friendly debates, although they can go to extremes, very passionate about what they believe in
  • need to feel like they have space, they’re the ones who will run away when things get too serious or dull


CAPRICORN:

  • a little hard on themselves, and sometimes others, though their self-control is strong when it comes to expressing anger, drive, energy, and sexuality
  • detests waste of any kind, which makes them hard to let go of things 
  • self-indulgent by nature, disciplined, realistic, possesses the ability to plan for the future —something that many other signs have difficulties doing


AQUARIUS:

  • a rather original view of the world, the tried-and-true methods of getting things done are far too boring
  • proud of their willpower and independence they are quite difficult to settle down
  • their madness isn’t easy to discover. Creative about getting what they want, you won’t always know you’re being dominated


PISCES:

  • an unusually passive placement, they don’t appear like they are capable of harming a fly
  • need a creative outlet that allowing them to express their desires of the moment, their compassion —and even their anger —freely and imaginatively
  • prone to feelings of guilt about their anger, and difficulties with asserting themselves
Positive things about the signs:

(//These are based on people I know\ &based on sun signs)

Aries: are always so adorable, even when angry. They can be really reliable and down to earth people. May seem a bit cranky sometimes but they are still the cute little fluff on the inside. They are sometimes kind of impulsive and obsessive about things, but it just shows how determined they can be.

Taurus: loyal and people who you can rely on, who care more than people sometimes assume. They strive for peace and are good communicators. Tauruses are caring towards whom they love. They can also be very passionate once they find something that they enjoy to do.

Gemini: towards friends, they are real protective and kind. Very daring people, who are always fun to have around as they seem to love learning new things, and having new experiences. 

Cancer: interesting to have those long deep conversations with, because they are good listeners and can always relate. They are also very committed in life and with ambitions.

Leo: the wisest people I know, who know what they want in life, and are organised enough to get there. To me, they hold a mother-like figure and deeply care for all loved ones.

Virgo: moderately confident, they are very sociable and willing to sacrifice a lot for others. These people are quite bold and accepting, sometimes very crazy (especially as children) and organised. Plus they enjoy a little bit of change once in a while, which is good.

Libra: can bring people together, to me they hold this social power, however, they are considerate and generous. They are approachable, therefore always there to help you, or support you.

Scorpio: perceptive, I find that these people do not judge others that much. Probably most understanding, and funny people to generally hang with. Extremely magnetic and yes - charming to a high degree.

Sagittarius: hard-working and caring, Sagittariuses are also very charming, and sometimes I feel this goes unnoticed. These people are usually(however not all)risk-takers, and enjoy extreme sports or the outdoors.

Capricorn: funny, humorous people, who always know how to make you feel better. They always try their best and are born poets sometimes. Caps are also quite realistic yet very creative.

Aquarius: They don’t judge, and are always there to support you, truly caring for you. Furthermore, they never fail to bring your mood back up and are very individual. I love how independent and strong they are.

Pisces: Independent and talkative, these people are very gentle and nurturing. They are warm people who can be a bit impulsive yet are likely to be family oriented. Plus, they are really passionate and committed to things.

Pileated Woodpecker–Posting Prerequisite (Both Personal….and Political), Oakton, Virginia, June 4, 2017

So, I was on a bit of a self-imposed posting hiatus, as relationships and politics and adulthood (oh, my) have had me spinning a bit too dizzily…BUT, even as a firm non-believer in anything deemed superstitious, I have decided to take this morning’s visit to my feeders–from no less than my favorite and somewhat elusive bird–as a sign that it is in fact time…to post again…:)
