To the glistening eastern sea, I give you Queen Lucy the Valiant. To the great western wood, King Edmund the Just. To the radiant southern sun, Queen Susan the Gentle. And to the clear northern sky, I give you King Peter the Magnificent.
Description:You hated him at seven, warmed up to him at twelve, and liked him at fifteen. Now the two of you are twenty years old and inseparable best friends… and you’re absolutely in love with him; he’s in love too—just not with you.
You were seven years old when you first met Jeon Jungkook,
and it was without question that you absolutely, undeniably, irrefutably, hated him.
You hated his everything, from the way kids in your class
flocked to him like he was some sort of radiant sun, to the way he teased you
in passing, to the way he’d stare at you out of the corner of his eye, but most
of all you hated that stupidly beautiful bunny like grin that never failed to
make your heart skip a beat.
You remembered the first day school started back from winter
break so clearly. The teacher announced that it was time to change assigned
seats. A lot of the kids whined in sadness at having to be ripped away from
their friends, but you on the other hand didn’t really mind the change since
you hadn’t become too close to your desk mate… that is until his name was called.
Your eyes widened as you watched the happy-go-lucky raven
haired boy take the seat next to yours. A frustrated sigh left your lips as you
tried to keep your sights forward and away from the brightly lit grin that was
visible through your peripheral.
Aries seems to embody the fury of Fire the most, I think its the elixir of flaming cardinal energies, the radiant Sun exaltation, being ruled by fiery Mars, its all about exploration and pure intuition
Earth is consolidation and fabric, sort of like being rooted and safe, I think the Fixed quality in Taurus tightens the wrapped vines, like Taurus are very present in the Earth, they are embalmed in it, and Venus emanates a love of earth and nature, so there is like the earth child in their flower cradle
Mutable Gemini seems to embody air, Mercury is quicksilver and changeable, Gemini is as light as air, changes swiftly, and vanishes just as quickly, air has no body and flows through everybody, Gemini is the etheric body who’s energy lies behind every sign
Pisces is the most soaked, the Water valve I think, Neptune is a very watery planet, and the collective unconscious and dreams are associated with Water and this is where Pisces spends much of their time, I think the mutable quality means they can float and change form like water and experience all facets of human life, Pisces symbolizes all things, oceanic consciousness
“Tell me the story about how the sun loved the moon so much he died every night to let her breathe.”
” There once was a moon, as beautiful as can be, only the stars could fathom, but the sun could not see. The sun so radiant, he burns so bright. The moon so luminous, but only showed her face during the night. She was untouchable, surrounding herself with a blanket of darkness. The sun would give anything to catch a glimpse of the Moon illuminating the beautiful night sky.
Until one day when the Sun was sliding out of the heavens, he caught a glimpse of her. She was peeking up, a rare side of her being exposed to the light. And while the Sun could shine, he knew the Moon could glow.
Just as the Stars were wandering into the night, the Sun fell in love like a snowball hurding down a mountain. How he wished to see her move than the fleeting moments he shared with her at both dawn and dusk. But they were a world apart.
“Go,” she whispered to him one of those nights, her voice as sweet and sorrowful as the last light of morning. “Go and let me breathe, for you and I have decided fates. You illuminate the day, and I cast a glow one the night. We will never be. Our connection would go against what all the people believe, all they know” During the summer he would stay a little longer just in case she would change his mind. It was no use.
“Don’t you dare abandon your blessing of light for my darkness.” And those were the last words the Moon was strong enough to speak to the Sun.
The Sun could feel her peaceful soul and it soon became clear. He would die each and every night to let his true love breathe, for it would put an end to all her misery.
” a tale like this should be heard and seen.”
“And no one will know it is the story of you and me.”
It makes sense that Leo is ruled by the Sun. While the Sun is radiant and warm, it is also blinding and harmful to those who look directly at it.
When people don’t directly or give their all to compliment or praise a Leo, an underdeveloped Leo will do whatever it takes to get people to praise them.
Underdeveloped Leos can fail to realize the effort and time people take to praise them. These Leos don’t have confidence in their shining qualities, and when those qualities don’t get noticed or praised enough, these Leos will shine brighter and make themselves hotter to force others to notice their presence. However, the burden of paying attention to a Leo when they’re in this state is that they’re uncomfortable to be with. They’re more blinding, and uncomfortably hot. If not controlled, an underdeveloped Leo can burn their surroundings with their insecurities, for Leo is also a sign associated with the ego. An undeveloped Leo will go under vicious cycles, doing anything and everything to get the attention they think they deserve.
Although developed Leos will certainly feel pain when they’re not noticed by others, developed Leos will not attempt to make themselves more noticeable. Developed Leos will have a very strong and deep understanding of their strengths and assets, and will stay stationary, for they know that the right people will be attracted to their radiance. Knowing that fact is enough for them, since they are already confident in themselves. Developed Leos know that their shining qualities aren’t for everyone, and it’s absolutely ok.
While the Sun is bright, it can also be blinding. There are two sides to Leo, and here they are.
I am Persephone
With a sharp tongue and fiery wit
A daughter above, but a Queen in the pit
I am Medusa
A victim - disrespectful at best
My punishment making my rage manifest
I am Artemis
Invincible to man’s deceitful tune
But as powerful as the pull of the moon
I am Aphrodite
Direction of my affection misunderstood
Suddenly all that matters is my womanhood
I am Helen
Beauty as radiant as the sun
But I am not a prize to be won.
I am Hera
Undeniably loving and fiercely loyal
But I am not a vengeful royal
I am Pandora
Trusting quickly, like a songbird
But I am not tricked by man’s charming word
I am Cassandra
Beauty that will leave you breathless
But I am nothing close to helpless
