power and sensitivity

Types of empaths

Empaths

Being an empath is when you are affected by other people’s energies, and have an innate ability to intuitively feel and perceive others.  Your life is unconsciously influenced by others’ desires, wishes, thoughts, and moods. Being an empath can be draining and hard to even deal with. I know a lot of time you just want to give up and cut it all off. Which I’ve done once it isn’t good for you. So I’m doing these lessons to help you cope learn and heal with your empathic ability. I’ll try and take you step by step to figure out just what you are and how to handle the daily stresses of being an empath. This is lesson one What is an empath and how to tell if you are even one and the different kinds of empaths.

What is an empath

An Empath is someone who tends to be hypersensitive to the emotions and emotional states of others. But in saying this it does not mean an Empath will actually be empathic/empathetic toward others. It simply means they are more sensitive to the emotional undercurrents that surround them than other people. Now not all empaths connection is with humans.Some are with the earth itself and nature. Others its animals.

Types of empaths

1. Emotional Empath

The emotional empath is one of the most common types of empaths. If you are this type, you will easily pick up the emotions of others around you and feel the effects of those emotions as if they were yours. The emotional empath will deeply experience the feelings of others in their own emotional body. For example, an emotional empath can become deeply sad around another individual who is experiencing sadness.

For emotional empaths, it is important to learn to differentiate between your own emotions and those of others. In this way, you can use your ability to help others without becoming drained.

2. Physical/Medical Empath

Those with this type of empathy can pick up on the energy of other people’s bodies. They intuitively know what ails another person. Many people with this type of empathy become healers either in the conventional medical professions or in alternative ones. Physical empaths may ‘feel’ an awareness  in their physical body when treating someone. They may also ‘see’ blockages in a person’s energy field that they sense need treating.

If you are a medical empath, you may pick up on symptoms from others and feel them in your own body. Taking on the physical symptoms of others may lead to health problems. Some people with chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia or autoimmune diseases might find it helps to strengthen their own energetic field so that they can turn this ability off when necessary. Taking some training in a form of healing can also help to hone this ability.

3. Geomantic Empath

Geomantic empathy is sometimes called place or environmental empathy. Those with this ability have a fine attunement to the physical landscape. If you find yourself uncomfortable, or really happy in certain environments or situations, for no apparent reason, you may be a geomantic empath.

If you are a geomantic empath, you will feel a deep connection to certain places. You may be drawn to sacred stones, groves, churches or other places of sacred power. You may also be sensitive to the history of a place and be able to pick up on sadness, fear or joy that have occurred in locations. Place empaths are highly attuned to the natural world and grieve for any damage to it. They watch with horror when trees are cut down or landscapes destroyed.

If you are this type of empath, you will probably need to spend time in nature to recharge. You may also find helping in an environmental project very healing for you. It is also important for you to make your everyday surroundings as harmonious and beautiful as you can. You may feel happier if you fill your house with plants and natural scents. You might also like to choose natural materials such as wood and linen for your clothing and furniture.

4. Plant Empath

If you are a plant empath, you intuitively sense what plants need. You will be green-fingered and have a true gift for placing the right plant in the right place in your garden or home. Many plant empaths choose to work in parks, gardens or wild landscapes where they can put their gifts to good use. In fact, if you have chosen an occupation that involves plants, then you are probably a plant empath. Some people with this gift actually receive guidance from trees or plants directly by hearing it within the mind.

If you are this kind of empath, you will already know that you need a lot of contact with trees and plants. You might like to strengthen this bond by sitting quietly by a special tree or plant and attuning more closely to its needs and guidance.

5. Animal Empath

Many empaths have a strong connection with animals. However, an animal empath will probably devote their lives to working for the care of our animal friends. Those with this gift will know what an animal needs and may be able to telepathically communicate with the creature.

If you are an animal empath, you probably already spend as much time with animals as you can. You may find that studying the biology or psychology of animals helps you to refine your gift. You could also consider training as an animal healer as your special talent can enable you to find out what is wrong with an animal and treat it accordingly.

6. Claircognizant/Intuitive Empath

If you are a claircognizant or intuitive empath, you will pick up information from other people simply by being around them. One glance at someone can give you all kinds of insight into that person. You will immediately know if someone is lying to you because you can sense the intentions behind their words. Those with this gift resonate to others energetic fields and read the energy of others very easily. This is closely related to the telepathic empath who can read another person’s thoughts.

7. Medium Empath

A medium empath is a medium who feels the emotions of spirits who have crossed over. This empath feels it deeply and is affected by such emotions. An ordinary medium can communicate and sometimes see spirits; the medium empath however has a very strong sense of the emotions and is drawn in by them.

If you have this ability, you need to surround yourself with people who you feel aligned with. With this gift, you may need to strengthen your energetic field so that you are not constantly bombarded with the thoughts and emotions of others.

Being an empath is not easy. You may find it confusing, disorienting and exhausting. However, understanding which of the types of empath you are can help you to use your gifts and abilities to help yourself and those around you.

Let's talk about cusps!!

Cusps, or cusp signs, are these really kick ass people who are born at the very end and very beginning of their sign month. Here’s how it goes for those who don’t know. I’ll go ahead and add in my own opinion of them since I am one and that seems to be how these things go xD

Aries-Taurus: AKA the Cusp of Power- April 19th  to April 24th    Y'all are just cool beans. Seems like you got all the good traits of both Aries and Taurus. You’re loving and compassionate, but hardworking as fuck. It’s really refreshing actually.

Taurus-Gemini: AKA the Cusp of Energy- May 19th  to May 24th        I don’t know much about you guys, but I’ve only met a handful of you and I really like talking to y'all on an intellectual level. You have a tendency to be FREAKISHLY smart. Always testing the smarty pants animal on those stupid animal quizzes that they force you to take in school. Also you’re super sweet to those you know. I have one really good friend who is a Taurus/Gemini cusp and she’s the type of person who like… talks to people in line at the supermarket if she’s in the right mood since Geminis tend to be really friendly, but Taurus’ are pretty introverted so they have to be in the right mood to do it, ya know?

Gemini-Cancer: AKA the Cusp of Magic- June 19th  to June 23rd YOU!!! ARE!!!! SO!!!! CUTE!!!!! My god you’re literally the epitome of adorable and shy and creative and its just. yeah. You make the best art in the world and I’m always so excited when you get excited about something you made because its just… contagious excitement. They get over things a lot faster than Cancers do which is nice, but they’re more homebodied than Geminis which, as an Aquarius/Pisces cusp (I get along best with this sign, couldn’t you tell?) is kind of annoying at times because they wanna stay home more than not, but they’re good parents??? So it works.

Cancer-Leo: AKA the Cusp of Oscillation- July 19th  to July 24th    You know… I was always kind of confused about the definition of this cusp?? Like… oscilation…. what the fuck kind of cusp is an oscillation??? Well…. a cancer/leo cusp is a good way to explain it. Personally, I’m terrified of these cusps. My cusp and this cusp DO NOT get along very well because I’m a very shy, easily frightened person and this cusp is basically a Leo on fucking steroids. They get angry a lot, but they’re angry in like…. a prideful way???? I don’t really know how to explain it. Just. Don’t get on their bad side. From what people say though, they are really caring and extremely passionate. They make crazy good politicians and lawyers and like… powerful debating people.

Leo-Virgo: AKA the Cusp of Exposure- August 19th to August 24th Hi. This cusp confuses the ever loving shit out of me. Like.. Really a lot. They’re the most introverted extroverts I’ve ever met in my life and I never know what to do with them??? You’re all like “Let’s go out!!! And!!! Read this book in the corner because I’m tired of being out and about……” Um…. what? You love having fun, and you love expressing your feelings once you’re comfortable, but you never quite have a grasp on the exact way to do it and sometimes that really bothers you. Oh. And you REALLY. Don’t like being criticized. Like… at all. Somehow I’m friends with the most of you though so who knows.

Virgo-Libra: AKA the Cusp of Beauty- September 19th  to September 24th     I’ve only met like.. two of you, and you’re so freakin chill I never know what to do around you, but apparently you worry a lot from what I’ve read. You don’t show it though. Also, you’re actually really pretty I promise. Virgo/Libra can either be super cocky about their looks or super modest. I’m sorry this is so short Dx

Libra-Scorpio: AKA the Cusp of Drama and Criticism- October 19th  to October 24th   So I’ve never met a Libra/Scorpio cusp now that I think of it. So this is totally off of a search of things I found. Bear with me.– APPARENTLY. 1. y'all are really freakishly pretty. 2. y'all are really cool, but you don’t give up information very easily so there’s that. and 3. You really like love, but you also have a tendency to be super serious at times (not as broody as Scorpios though)

Scorpio-Sagittarius: AKA the Cusp of Revolution- November 19th  to November 24th    The epitome of the “indie hipster” cusp. They’re suuuuuuper creative. Really arty people. Tend to have a LOT of things to say about a LOT of different things which sounds like everyone, but them more than ‘normal’ I guess? I don’t really know how to explain it. These cusps are the ones that are most likely in my opinion to go into like…. journalism or like… political activism because of how wordy and creative they are. They can be really nice too if you’re on their good side but if you’re not they can destroy you from the inside out so be careful.

Sagittarius-Capricorn: AKA the Cusp of Prophecy- December 19th to December 24th    My dad is one of these!!! They’re kind of weird, but winter signs tend to get along better than the other signs so its okay xP THEY! ARE! SO! FUNNY! A lot of people don’t understand their humor though which I find really sad, but if you live with them for a while or are around them and you understand their humor and such, they’re freakin hilarious. They keep their emotions bottled, and they stay pretty happy around people they just met. They don’t like to admit to weakness either. Like…. ever. At all. They love with their entire heart, and if they aren’t feeling it, they’ll tell you if they don’t like you.

Capricorn-Aquarius: AKA the Cusp of Mystery and Imagination- January 15th  to Jan 22nd   So these people scare me. Ever had those people who just like… omit an aura of power around you? Yeah that’s a Capricorn/Aquarius. They really do scare me, but apparently they make really good actors because there’s a ton of them in Hollywood. They’re crazy good at whatever they do. Most of the time they test into the like…. flamboyant or 'party animal’ type on the aforementioned middle school animal tests.

Aquarius-Pisces: AKA the Cusp of Sensitivity- February 18th  to February 22nd    This is me!!! I am this!!! Hi!!! So we have a tendency to be freakishly creative, but really sensitive and that’s why. I don’t know if all Aquarius/Pisces cusps are like this, but I’m really really attention deficit and energetic which makes us come off as dismissive or frustrated. We do well in positions of leadership and control, but we have to do things our own way. Doing things someone else’s way is REALLY NOT OKAY with someone in this cusp. Most of the time because we’ve already thought through the most logical way to do it and saw that your way is wrong. We’re freakishly smart too, we just don’t like to show it. :P 

Pisces-Aries: AKA the Cusp of Rebirth- March 19th  to March 26th     So from what I’ve gathered, which isn't very much so bear with me…. but from what I’ve gathered you like your alone time, but you also REALLY like to party when you’re in the mood for it. Like you won’t go down without a fight if you wanna party and someone tells you no. I think that’s the Aries part? Like…. you get freakishly passionate about the things you do which comes very strongly from both sides. But then its HOW you do them that’s very much Aries-esque. Like…. I dunno how to really explain it well, but you’re very aggressive lovers, and you fight with your whole body. And yeah. There isn’t much of a better way to explain it than that. I’d say you need to chill, but I feel like if you tried to chill you'd just get really depressed and a depressed Aries is like the freakin end of the world and no one wants that. 

So yeah. Cusps are really cool. A lot of people don’t know they’re cusps. A lot of people don’t know anything about cusps. But cusps have a tendency to be about ten times stronger spiritually, but about ten times weirder when compared to the average sign. So there’s that. It’s really cool and this post is going to get super duper long if I go on about them. So I’m going to stop while I’m ahead even though this post is already like a million miles long. I hope this helps anyne who has asked me about cusps??

I edited a couple things in here so that they’d be a bit more accurate. I reread a handful after it started to gain a couple notes and realized some of the little excerpt thingies sounded like I was ragging on the cusps a little.

Every Moon (man) has a disguise
  • Aries Moon: Inside the valiant and protective is a vulnerable child, fearful of abandonment and paralyzed by confusion
  • Taurus Moon: inside the grounded taurus moon a roamer really has nothing to stand on
  • Gemini Moon: an incessant gemini moon chatter conceals an innocent need to be heard and acknowledged for being aware and existing
  • Cancer Moon: an aggressive cancer moon veils the screaming child who is unable to cope with such powerful sensitivity
  • Leo Moon: inside the proud and performing lunar leo is a baby cub who truly craves acceptance from one true love
  • Virgo Moon: inside the internalized and intellectual virgo moon is an obligated healer who longs to help but doesn’t feel good enough
  • Libra Moon: inside the gracious libra moon there is a hollowness that could swallow the universe
  • Scorpio Moon: inside the intimidating scorpio moon is a wounded child who won’t stop screaming until she figures out why she was born at all
  • Sagittarius Moon: inside the carefree sagittarius moon is a wrestle against reaction, rage, and restlessness
  • Capricorn Moon: inside the sturdy lunar capricorn is a frightened child in the body of a full grown man
  • Aquarius Moon: inside the blase lunar aquarius is an empty scream at the condition of human existence
  • Pisces Moon: inside the sensitive pisces moon is an essence that generates the highest octave of motherly and maternal love, a ledge of the moon that touches the sea, all life, love, and suffering is born and dies here. in the moment that the moon rises, they see their reflection in the night. this is not all suffering but a true portrait of godly poetry

The Devil’s in the Details

I’ve been watching so much Ladybug that Netflix decided to give us a recommendation.  One of those “this has a 5% chance of being like the show you were watching” deals.  I don’t really watch anime, but Dave keeps trying to get me into it.

It’s called Hataraku Maō-sama! (The Devil Is a Part-Timer!) and is exactly as it sounds.  The leader of the demons gets turned into a teenager and works at a rip-off of McDonald’s.  There was a manga series in 2011 and it was made into a 13-episode anime series in 2013.

Not only is it funny as crap, I think Netflix is onto something with that Ladybug reference.

Adrien, you ridiculous dork.  Stop getting your social cues from anime.


Bonus:


Edit:  

Two normal teenagers who use their time-sensitive powers to fight evil together, all the while snarking at the other person…and the girl keeps denying feelings she has towards him.  Yeah.  I see Netflix’s point.

Your INFP ‘Companion’ unit User Guide and Manual

This manual sanctioned by and concept credit to @intpboard ;)

CONGRATULATIONS! Somehow you have found a wandering and bewildered INFP. Evidently they have offered you this manual after hearing you support Sherlock and their OTP. Take a moment to feel good about yourself, this is an important step in your relationship.

Your INFP companion will come with the following accessories:
Three (3) diaries (CAUTION: Perusal unadvised. Touch these at your own risk)
Three (3) everyday outfits
Two (2) indie outfits
Two (2) Tumblr blogs
One (1) laptop
One (1) mobile device
One (1) pair of custom-built earphones
One (1) unique tea mug
One (1) cat

Software:
You INFP comes programmed with the following traits:
Fi: Your INFP is a special snowflake. They will have invisible feels, but keep an eye out for the cute smile. And they probably really do Know that feeling.
Ne: Your INFP is weird and likes ambiguous things. May meme occasionally.
Si: Your INFP likes to store up good memories and database feelings like buried treasure for that novel they’re writing.
Te: Although it is their inferior function, your INFP can be executive and use cold hard logic to be remarkably strong and creative. They may need help adapting to the harsh outside world. May secretly hate everything (including themselves) if unhealthy.

Getting Started:
To set up your INFP companion:
1. Fill mug with tea and place INFP in close proximity of cat and a sunset and leave to bask until heart is pleasantly warm.
2. Sync with Tumblr (this should happen automatically through a deep emotional connection inherent in all INFPs, much like Bluetooth).
3. Allow thirty (30) minutes of continuous data exchange.
4. Sit beside them for thirty (30) minutes in silence as Human Presence Conditioning.
5. Get up. If your INFP moves to follow, they have successfully activated and synced with you. If not, repeat Step 4 with the cat.

Modes:
Quiet (default) - quiet cinnamon roll. May stare off into space, usually either very sweet or very sarcastic, depending on your model. May be a socially awkward if brand new. Be careful not to forget about or leave behind your INFP when it is in this mode.
Talkative - frequent activation of this mode usually correlates with quick Human Presence Conditioning. Explore topics until you find which ones activate this mode, you may be surprised.
Feels - may need unusual amount of solitude with all accessories in easy access. Be receptive of feels if expressed, to avoid software crashing.
Crazy/happy - have fun, roll with it, but beware of hazard unwariness.
Unhealthy/shadow (locked) - only activated under extreme stress. May burn everything in its path, or burn self in solitude.

Relationships with other units:
NFs:
Your INFP’s homey home. May feel threatened or devalued by INFJ units due to social constructs, but usually end up getting along.
SPs: Interesting territory for your INFP. May find Se overwhelming, but generally find them intriguing, perhaps from a distance.
NTs: May or may not get along, if they do, have very interesting discussions, good for software conditioning. May be cut by perceived coldness if new.
SJs: Can be very fun. INFP gets to feel like an educator in Ne, and may learn from high Si if healthy. Some of these usually necessary for grounding your INFP during lightning storms.

Feeding:
Your INFP may be constantly snacking. A ‘regular’ diet is not strictly necessary, but sneak some vitamins into their packet and fetish foods occasionally.

Grooming:
Some INFP units require more grooming than others. If your INFP excessively self-grooms, it is probably not just a phase (see Bjork). You have little to no control over this.

Sleeping:
Your INFP companion unit runs the risk of becoming nocturnal. Discover the cause for this - usually either angst or creativity. If the former, see Troubleshooting (p. 9). If the latter, arrange bedside outlets - NOT tumblr.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why does my INFP procrastinate so much?
Unlike INTPs, INFP units have Te software, however it is in its beta version upon unit activation and the full version can be installed after some conditioning. Engaging them in tasks they have a personal investment in and using Divide and Conquer applications may aide effectiveness.

Why is my INFP so sensitive to criticism/so defensive/so salty?
See above question (Te software). INFP units also have an Identity Crisis application that is hosted by Fi, activated by ‘negative’ external stimulus and executed by Te. With the full version of Te, this application can lead to powerful self-transformation. Sensitivity should decrease with conditioning, however positive affirmation will help stabilize application launch.

Help! My INFP unit is stuck in Unhealthy / Shadow mode!
There are three main manifestations of unhealthy mode. If in shadow functions, an ENFJ may be helpful. If in the grip of Te, they may need help coming to terms with reality. Often fire and brimstone anger and ‘just do it’ mentality can help pull your INFP out of apathy long enough to grow healthier. If in an Fi-Si loop, thrust you INFP into a new situation, or several. In any case, getting your INFP to communicate their problems to other units (other NFs are usually best) will be highly beneficial, although your INFP’s Fi may resist initially.

Again, CONGRATULATIONS on acquiring your new INFP unit! Have fun!

anonymous asked:

do you think that sanji thinks that zoro doesn't like him? i mean, mutual respect is there, sure, but like you said, zoro's been the instigator for most of their fights and has never even said sanji's name in canon. knowing sanji's low self-worth, he could interpet zoro's gruff behaviour as a sign of dislike or even contempt. your throughts?

nope, I genuinely don’t think so !!

at its core, when everything else is stripped away, Zoro and Sanji’s relationship is based on mutual respect and trust. not hatred. not contempt.

this means, they know that deep down they care and respect each other as nakama. their behavior is rooted on healthy rivalry, not malice: both parties see each other as equals, and the rivalry pushes them to strive to be better versions of themselves.

you said that Zoro instigates most of the fights, which is true, but don’t forget that Sanji reacts to it all the same – there are equal reactions from both sides. they dish out not despite their respect, but precisely because they know the other can take it. Zoro starts the fight because he knows Sanji wouldn’t take it negatively. Sanji responds in equal because he knows Zoro wouldn’t expect any less.

this is also coupled with the fact that Zoro and Sanji have very similar thought process when it comes to things that matter the most:

  • a lot of their team attacks don’t require them to discuss it beforehand (breaking the walls in Water 7, protecting Vivi in Alabasta, the team attack during Davy Back Fight, etc)
  • whenever there’s an outside force they instantly stop fighting, band together, and take equal leadership positions (this is exhibited as early as when they first met Crocus and Luffy was off with Laboon, or in Water 7, when Usopp tried to challenge Luffy and Sanji immediately agreed with Zoro’s POV and shut down opposing opinions)
  • the most popular example is of course Thriller Bark, where Sanji understands Zoro well enough to keep the whole thing as a secret, and Zoro trusts Sanji to keep the secret. all these without a single word exchanged between them. they just knew.

also !! I know I talk a lot about Sanji’s self-worth, but I actually think it’s more complicated than just him thinking “I am useless, people hate me” because 1) he clearly no longer is 2) the Straw Hats, including and especially Zoro who sees him as an equal, would be the last people on earth who would make him feel that he’s useless and disliked. if a strong guy walks up to you and thinks you’re worthy of challenge, would you think he’s putting you down? I wouldn’t. I’m sure Sanji sees it as both a compliment and a challenge.

I think – this may sound contradictory, but bear with me – Sanji has low self-worth, but not self-esteem. this means he knows he’s good enough to contribute something. however, this also means that he thinks he’s good enough to be sacrificed. he doesn’t want to die, but he also sees himself as living on borrowed time, so he throws himself in front of a bullet every time the situation calls for it. this is shown over and over again in Drum Island, in Thriller Bark, in Dressrosa, in Whole Cake Island – it’s not “I’m useless, take me instead of my crew”; it’s “i’m a good enough sacrifice, take me instead.”

tl;dr, Zoro starts all the fights with Sanji because he knows Sanji well and knows Sanji won’t take it the wrong way. conversely, Sanji may have self-worth issues but he’s not a weak blushing flower who would cry just because Zoro calls him a dartbrow. their rivalry is healthy in the same way any young adults would tease and call each other names: lightly, respectfully, and – even when they will never admit this – affectionately.

and at the end of the day, they know the other always has their back in a fight. it’s enough. it’s more than enough.

Aquarius Mercury+ Aquarius Mars: Unpredictable but will never let you see them sweat, get red in the face, cry, or grimace.

Aquarius Mercury+ Pisces Mars: Wants to cry but can’t, idealistic towards issues and intellect, believes they fight spiritual battles.

Depending on what Houses these planets are in could make a big difference, keep that in mind.

Moon in Pisces - Moon Mermaid 

At the nocturnal lunar lagoon the Moon in Pisces bathes in a sea of emotion. Neptune nectar induces the dream that dreams a dream. The individual is a frequent visitor to states of fantasy. Emotions trigger the individual’s powerful sensitivity and generosity. It can be difficult for the individual to switch off feelings once the waterfall begins flowing. Interactions can be enchanting, a sort of indigo myst illuminates against certain moon shadows. There is a celestial coolness, but a reactive nature that can be worrisome and fretting. The individual can be a true escapist and ride the dream cruise into fantasy netherworlds whenever reality becomes to harsh. Or the person can be pedantic with earthly responsibilities, keeping lists and maintaining order because the ground always seems to be slipping beneath them. Pisces is a dual sign so its common for the individual to be both. Nonsensical in their striving for common sense. 

Emotions can be the colour that the Lunar Pisces uses for striking creativity. Indulging in the arts serves as a tremendous emotional coolant, like listening to their favourite song or reading their favourite passages sinks straight into the spirit and soothes the soul. The individual is inspired by art, so they can be a fascinating creator themselves, tapping into the well of human emotion, and conveying depression, euphoria, fear, and emptiness with striking artistry, and these are emotions the individual is quite familiar with. Moon in Pisces people have little to no resistance against environmental influences, material and psychic. Carl Jung suggests the divinity that binds us all together is the unconscious that we all share., he refers to this the ‘collective unconscious’. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and represents fragments of the 11 signs before them. Every emotional experience is activated through the Lunar Pisces, so they can ride the carousel of emotional highs and lows with each day. The individual could wake up in a panic, settle into calmness, daydream into lethargy, awake into frustration, and fall asleep with content. And these emotional states can change from day to day, making it difficult for the individual to make and maintain plans. 

The Moon in Pisces person represents emotional salvation. Their emotional nature is analgesic and healing. The individual is receptive to the agony of people, and therefore needs to heal so their own howls can be silenced. It’s difficult to know where their own feelings stop and other people’s begin. This acute receptivity demands frequent solitude, so its common for the individual to withdraw completely for regeneration. People’s emotions can become so static and exhausting. They are faithful people who emanate warmth, relaxing solicitude, and empathy. The individual is capable of mastering the emotional realm and developing profound wisdom. This endless stream of emotion can also trigger self destruction, especially in terms of relationships and dependency. Fears of abandonment, insufficiency, or the constant lost feeling that hovers can cause the individual to cling onto people, places, and harmful rituals. The individual may find it difficult to understand or appropriately express emotion so these powerful feelings can be internalized. Dark, sick, or addicted people can be drawn to the healing Moon in Pisces lamp, so they can be victim to psychic vampires who deplete their spiritual and emotional energies. Lunar Pisces spend their lives wandering, trying to find a sense of fulfilment, a substance for the empty space within them, a home for the lost traveler from the sea, a person that will give substance to a moon hidden by mist. And yet, they are already complete, overflowing, too full for the conscious mind to comprehend, floating like a starfish in the dream sea, singing the zodiac to sleep.

Your bare face had made you uncomfortable since you had gotten glasses, if you were being honest. It felt strange, to not have the familiar weight balanced dangerously on your nose, even if you always had to push them up by the bridge or wiggle your nose to make sure they stayed in place. And now that you had developed a desperate infatuation with the boy who had come with the group staying in Tina’s apartment, they gave you an excuse to break eye contact and hide your face from inspection while you pretended to be worried about if your glasses were secure. Because if anyone looked closely enough, it would probably become clear that you blushed any time Credence was even in the same room as you.

Oh, Credence was his name, by the way.

You could not remember ever having been this shy, or uncertain, or confused. You were normally pretty outgoing and knew how to talk to people and could communicate effectively, but there was something about Credence. Not that you could really name what that something was, but. It was something. Maybe it was just that you had a giant, massive, horribly new crush on him and that this experience was certainly out of your depth. You were just young, you guessed, and had been so focused on your grades and your career that you had largely neglected your romantic life, but now you were here, with no experience, and totally unsure of yourself. Maybe that was the something. The being unsure. He wasn’t a puzzle you could just solve or a problem you could just push past—he was a person. A closed off, suspicious, calculating, powerful, dangerous, completely intelligent, sensitive, calming, and absolutely riveting to talk to, if you could get him to talk to you.

Which, since you were so nervous around him, was really hard to do. You could tell that he could sense your discomfort, which added to his own, so most of the time, you settled for listening when he talked to Newt or Tina or Queenie or Jacob, when they were around, which was most of the time. You knew they weren’t keen on leaving Credence alone, not after what they told you had happened to New York while you’d been away, but… You weren’t as afraid as they were that something else would happen. You couldn’t say why, but he seemed…too controlled to let that happen again. Part of his allure was that control.

Or, that perceived amount of control.

Because tonight, in this moment, clearly, he was not in control.

It was mostly a normal night. You had left Tina’s apartment to walk across the hall to yours at around 9 PM, had gone to your room to sleep around 10:30 since you were tired, and had brushed your teeth, set your glasses on the bedside table, and drifted off by 11. Then the pounding started.

Clearly, it was on your front door, a desperate, frenzied knocking that you could tell was from a closed fist beating relentlessly on the wood. In your haste, you tripped over your nightstand as you scrambled forward, darting as quickly as you could to the front door. When you swung it open, breathing hard with a hand pressed firmly to your chest, Credence pushed frantically past you and shoving himself into the corner of your living room. He was hazy, if that makes any sense, kind of blurring at the edges. Fading away and coming back into focus on a loop. The only thing you could really tell (on account of not having put your glasses on in your hurry) was that he was crying.

Cautiously, you stepped forward. “Credence? What’s wrong?”

His eyes stopped their spastic survey of the room to snap in your direction. You could tell he was assessing you, and you knew you should have been scared of what he would do if something stuck him the wrong way but… Again, you just weren’t. But he didn’t seem to find anything awry because the tears almost instantly stopped, which alarmed you slightly, but clearly it was a bad night. So you could understand that his emotions might be somewhat volatile or unpredictable. “Didn’t—know where to—go.” His voice cracked, rasped out of his throat in cut up phrases and around strange pauses, much as it had done when you had first met him.

“Well—Why did you have to go anywhere? Is something wrong?” You sat down and crossed your legs on the opposite end of the room, wanting to wait to get the okay from him that you could get closer.

He rested his forehead on his knees as he drew them up to his chest, but you could tell he was squeezing his eyes shut. You couldn’t focus on much else though, since you still couldn’t see. “The—way that they—look. The way that they look—at me.” On the last word, he erupted almost gently into a grey smoke before returning to a solid after a few seconds, but this time he seemed more definitively solid, less hazy.

“How were they looking at you, Credence?”

“Like I’m going to—break. Like I’ll break any—second.”

When he started to shudder, shoulders caving around his knees, you crept forward on your hands and knees to be across from him, so he knew you were there, so he stopped caving in and started looking out. You were close enough now that his face was clear in your vision, not blurry anymore from your inability to focus. “You’re not going to. I know that. They’ll know that too. Maybe they just need some time.”

Credence glanced across to you from the floor briefly. This time he was the one who couldn’t maintain eye contact. “They—know me best.”

You sat down across from him and noticed that he had laid his hand, palm upward, outstretched and unmoving between the two of you. You reached out cautiously and waited for the indicative twitch of his fingers under your hand before gripping his hand tightly. “You know you best, Credence.” He looked from your joined hands to your eyes again. You could tell he was thinking. “Do you feel like you’re going to break?”

He shook his head slowly before speaking. “I just—hurt sometimes. And when I—try to tell them they—panic, talk in these voices that—they don’t usually use. I can tell they think I’m going to… That…” You waited patiently for him to work around the words, just stroking your thumb over his knuckles to try to soothe him or ground him or help at all. “I just wanted them to listen.” His voice sounded so small on that last sentence.

“I’ll listen.” You couldn’t help the boldness in your voice, the defensiveness, the pain that you felt when you realized how lonely that must have been, to feel like his pain came secondary to the worry of his roommates and friends. That they cared more about what he’d do than about his emotional distress. You could understand why, but you cared more about him than anything else in this moment. Screw the whole city. You moved slowly to sit next to Credence, wrapping an arm around his shoulder as he pressed into your side and let himself shudder. “I’ll listen…” You whispered one more time, closing your eyes and trying to fight off your own tears as you felt Credence clenching and unclenching his fists, unsure of where to put them.

Minutes passed this way, though Credence’s tears had stopped almost as soon as they had begun. You were sure he was used to having to quiet down quickly. When he pulled back though, he had a small smile on his face, which you were about to question, but he spoke first, after rubbing a hand across his face to wipe away stray tears. “You’re not wearing your glasses.” He sounded amused.

You couldn’t help the strangled laugh that forced itself out of you before you answered. “Well, yeah, I was in a hurry. Made it really hard to see where I was going though. I feel blind without them. Naked, too.” You turned crimson at that word choice and buried your face in your hands.

Credence exhaled sharply, which you took to be a laugh, and you saw his face was tinged pink too. “Well, your eyes are… They’re really pretty. I’ve never seen you—without the glasses on. And I feel like—I don’t see your eyes because you’re always touching the glasses.”

You blushed at the compliment and withdrew your arm from his shoulders, playing with the sleeves of your shirt instead of the glasses. “Well, I do that when I’m—when I’m nervous.”

A quick glance over to Credence showed that he was confused. “I made you…nervous? Why? Did I… Did I scare you too?”

You felt horrible when you saw how sad he looked and decided to take a chance. You took a deep breath before confessing in one long exhale, “Iwasn’tscaredIjusthaveahugecrushonyou.”

You felt so silly that you just wanted the earth to swallow you whole. This felt so…middle school. Which felt about right since that’s about where your social skills had developed to. But the confession was awkward and sudden and probably unreciprocated and—

Credence’s hand had crept slowly to your side, just letting his pinky brush your hip. He was looking straight ahead and was red as a tomato, but this was—something. You held your breath as you intertwined your fingers with his. You didn’t know when you were going to exhale, and you felt like you were suffocating, but you couldn’t bring yourself to break the silence.

Not before Credence spoke. “I’ve never… I don’t know…”

You faced him then, which was encouragement enough for him to look at you too. You answered quietly, “I’ve never… either. I don’t…”

The two of you just looked at each other, breaths held, and you had hardly noticed that your faces were drifting together before his eyelashes brushed cheeks. It was probably awkward that your eyes were open when your lips first touched, but the moonlight on his face was really breathtaking and so was this moment. His lips were chapped, and cold, and scratched yours lightly, since yours weren’t exactly not chapped either. It was brief, maybe only a second or two of just lips pressing together, before you broke apart, but it was enough to have you both blushing under the weight of the new experience.

“Was that—Is that okay? I’ve never…kissed anyone before.” Credence’s face started to flame both with embarrassment and shame at the explicit confession.

“I’ve never…kissed anyone either, Credence. We’re in the same position.” You chuckled nervously but looked down to your hand, where Credence was stroking his thumb absently. You pressed a quick kiss to his cheek, letting a grin break across your face once you noticed he had a small smile playing at the corners of his mouth too.

Credence let out a shaky breath once the silence seemed to have settled comfortably between the two of you and rested his forehead on yours, looking down at your joined hands, before speaking. “Can we—figure this out—together?” His voice was a whisper, hardly louder than the silence, and so was your response:

Of course.”
