Most to Least Intimidating Mars Signs

Aquarius Mars: Ice kings and queens right here. They’ll cut you off like you never existed. No shit talking, no arguing. You’re just dead in their book.

Scorpio Mars: Vindictive, manipulative, and borderline crazy when mad. They’ll sink your ship and their own trying to hit you where it hurts. These guys don’t give a shit once they hit a point and they will not forgive and forget.

Gemini Mars: Extremely spiteful and hateful when mad. It flips back and forth from forgiving to still pissed off. They will kill you with their words and ask why you’re dying.

Aries Mars: These guys are gonna be all up in your face. They don’t give a hoot what you think. They’ll rant and rave and blow up in a rage when upset. And then be over it seconds later while everybody around them is in shock.

Cancer Mars: Spiteful and emotionally turbulent. Slights will not be easily forgotten, but they tend to be apologetic when they know they’ve said something harsh.

Virgo Mars: They will pick you apart by your flaws and make you feel like the biggest idiot. One difficult part of how detail oriented Virgo is.

Capricorn Mars: They bottle up their anger so much and use it to help them power forward. Their grudges are long-lasting and you usually won’t even know a Capricorn Mars person dislikes you unless you get long silences because they just keep it so hidden. When they lose their temper it’s like an earthquake though - devastating and over quickly.

Taurus Mars: They hold a very intense grudge, but rarely do they do anything about it. Really just very stubborn and tend to latch on to their anger.

Sagittarius Mars: Really difficult to get a rise out of them, because they don’t care for negativity and will just run away from it. But they do have a tendency to pop off and own you with some very blunt arguing if pushed too far.

Leo Mars: Very relaxed Mars sign, but if pushed too far there can be quite an explosion from these guys.

Pisces Mars: Sensitive and prone to crying during disputes even if they’re not at fault. They’ll probably spend a lot of it apologizing and low-key manipulating you to feel bad for them.

Libra Mars: Not extremely intimidating. Tend to just want to smooth over the issues even if you caused it. They’re easily forgiving and don’t tend to be very harsh.

I will end… with a little scene that took place in the last months of peace. They were the most terrible months of my life, for, helplessly and hopelessly, one watched the inevitable approach of war. One of the most horrible things at that time was to listen on the wireless to the speeches of Hitler—the savage and insane ravings of a vindictive underdog who suddenly saw himself to be all-powerful. We were in Rodmell during the late summer of 1939, and I used to listen to those ranting, raving speeches. One afternoon I was planting in the orchard under an apple-tree iris reticulata, those lovely violet flowers… Suddenly I heard Virginia’s voice calling to me from the sitting room window: “Hitler is making a speech.” I shouted back, “I shan’t come. I’m planting iris and they will be flowering long after he is dead.” Last March, twenty-one years after Hitler committed suicide in the bunker, a few of those violet flowers still flowered under the apple-tree in the orchard.

Signs that it’s Time to Walk Away from a Relationship

1. Dishonesty: He or she repeatedly lies to you about where they were, what they were doing, who they were with etc.

2. Lack of support for you: He or she is always looking for support from you but gives very little back in return. You are the one who makes the most if the effort, and does the most of the work in the relationship.

3. Cheating: Any affair is a cause to question your relationship. Repeated affairs should be a deal breaker.

4. Condescension: If your partner frequently acts superior, condescendingly or rudely toward you … or criticises and puts you down in front of others … or deliberately tries to make you feel worthless and inadequate … then this is a toxic relationship. It’s time to say goodbye and walk away.

5. Volatile mood swings. Don’t hang around with someone who can suddenly turn nasty, or who likes to rant, rave and dump their feelings on you. While everyone is subject to some mood swings at times, don’t spend time with people whose emotions dominate.

6. Violence: Any violent relationship is a destructive and dangerous relationship. Love and violence should never co-exist.

7. The feelings have changed. Sometimes we just notice that we’ve changed and grown apart – and we don’t feel as if we love that person anymore. If romance has past its due-date, and we don’t have much in common, then it’s time to do the right things by you both, and walk away.

How about a semi angsty fight with the rfa+V but they make up because HAPPY ENDINGS ARE NICE

I’m a slut for angst don’t give me this power 

Yoosung: 

✮ you had accidentally knocked the power cord to his computer while you were cleaning and he was playing LOLOL 
✮ he screamed 
✮ he was ranting and raving about how he was in the middle of an important raid and he was so close to levelling up 
✮ and you’re kinda standing there with a laundry basket and a pile of clothes almost over your head 
✮ and you don’t know what to do 
✮ you kind of want to cry 
✮ you kind of want to throw the laundry at his head 
✮ until 
✮ “rika never did things like this!!”
✮ oh 
✮ of course
✮ it somehow always got back to this point. comparing you with rika 
✮ sometimes he didn’t mean it or even realise he’d done it. but this was different 
✮ you remain eerily calm, putting the laundry down before turning to glare at yoosung 
✮ a wave of realisation hits him and he’s just full of guilt 
✮ you very calmly tell him you’re going to spend the night with jaehee, and ask him not to contact you 
✮ he begins crying and pleading with you to stop and stay 
✮ he’s so sorry and he’s just hating himself while you pack an overnight bag
✮ he’s practically on his knees and following you, begging you to stay 
✮ you kind of pause when you see the raw sorrow in his face 
✮ you sigh and stop for a moment 
✮ you’re hurt but you know that you have to talk it out with yoosung for it to get better 
✮ you both talk for a few hours, and he completely understands your viewpoint and he apologises 18923475829 times 
✮ he stays off of LOLOL for a few weeks, and even after that he tries not to get too obsessed– because that’s how the whole problem started 
✮ he just doesn’t want to lose you 

Jaehee: 

✎ you just wanted her to stop working so much 
✎ she was working overtime at the cafe 
✎ so much that she practically lived there 
✎ she was there after-hours and before-hours 
✎ sometimes she slept there and wouldn’t come home 
✎ so you book a holiday for her in secret, making plans behind her back for the cafe so it can function without her
✎ you tell all the employees and the deliverers who are close with the shop 
✎ but when you sit jaehee down and announce your plan 
✎ she gets so cold 
✎ she wants none of it 
✎ she’s not overworking herself dammit 
✎ she’s just doing what needs to be done 
✎ you try telling her that she doesn’t need to coddle the cafe, that you and the other emplyees were fully capable of running it 
✎ but she’s so worked up 
✎ and she says that you can’t 
✎ you’re clearly offended and you’re upset that your hard work planning this holiday for her is being pushed aside 
✎ somehow, you get her to take the holiday and see how it pans out 
✎ she’s calling you constantly 
✎ eventually you start ignoring her calls and texts 
✎ she gets so freaked out that the cafe is literally crumbling with you in charge so she rushes home 
✎ and you’re so mad when she rushes into the cafe, only to stop when she sees everything is going as usual 
✎ “b-but you weren’t answering my calls! I thought something happened!” 
✎ “jaehee i was ignoring you because you have no trust in me and I was busy making sure you could enjoy your holiday!” you were screaming 
✎ she felt so bad 
✎ she took her vacation and came back a lot better 
✎ you two made up, and she explained that her problem came from being jumin’s assistant for so long (if she didn’t do her job everything fucked up bc jumin is horrible at his job lmao) 
✎ she was a lot more calm after that and took breaks when she needed to (even took some time off on every second weekend- when you took care of the cafe) 

Zen: 

✿ he was working 
✿ of course 
✿ his job was the root of most of your arguments as a couple 
✿ but this time he had gone out for drinks with the cast 
✿ while you were standing outside of a restaurant waiting for him- you were going to have a date since filming was wrapping up that day (which is why the cast was having drinks in the first place) 
✿ you had faith in him, and stayed there until the restaurant closed 
✿ which was very, very late in the evening, seeing as it was part bar 
✿ as you were walking home, upset 
✿ zen came stumbling out of the bar with his castmates 
✿ he doesn’t notice you at first 
✿ until one of his acting buddies points at you, not recognising you, and laughs about how you’re soaked in rain and look like you’ve had that worst day of your life 
✿ you hear him 
✿ zen chuckles slightly before looking closer and realising who it is 
✿ swears up a storm as he pushes away everyone- muttering out something like ‘ssss my girlfirendddd’ 
✿ he tries to grab you because you’re storming away 
✿ he’s trying to coo and ask you why you were out so late because he’s drunk and doesn’t remember 
✿ you slap his hands away before screaming at him 
✿ “I was waiting for you! Our date for celebrating the end of filming?! Guess you had other plans, huh?!” 
✿ he’s so shocked like 
✿ it looks like he’s been smacked in the face 
✿ he follows you all the way home, apologising profusely 
✿ you make him sleep on the couch and lock yourself in the bedroom 
✿ when he wakes up the next morning he remembers, even through his wicked hangover 
✿ he cooks an amazing breakfast and waits for you to come out 
✿ when you do he hands you flowers with a card about how sorry he is
✿ he swears that he’ll make it up to you- and never let it happen ever again 

Jumin: 

₩ he was planning on properly introducing you to his father 
₩ but he was getting so controlling 
₩ he literally dressed you and did your hair and practically gave you a lecture on how to act and what to say 
₩ you’re kind of pissed at him but try to understand that he’s just stressed about how his father will react 
₩ his father loves you, and you loosen up- begin to be yourself 
₩ his father leaves after blessing your relationship together 
₩ but jumin is fuming 
₩ ‘what were you doing?! I told you not to say this or that’ blah blah 
₩ you’re just so shocked 
₩ “jumin that’s not who I am!” 
₩ “that’s who you should be!” 
₩ silence. 
₩ jumin has never been afraid of anything 
₩ but he’s afraid of this silence and the tears that are slipping down your cheeks 
₩ he’s afraid of what he said. he’s afraid of himself 
₩ he stumbles over his words as he tries to apologise, saying that isn’t what he meant 
₩ you can’t hear him though, all you can hear is his previous words echoing through your head 
₩ you tell him you’re sleeping in the guest room that night- the only thing you said before locking him out 
₩ when you get up the next morning 
₩ you open the door and see jumin sitting on the ground agains the wall next to your door, elizabeth pulled to his chest 
₩ his eyes were puffy and his cheeks and nose red 
₩ he had a note next to him that he hadn’t finished 
₩ it read ‘I’m sorry’ over and over, tear stains smudging some of the letters 
₩ you sigh, and kneel down to wake him up 
₩ he explains that he thought his father wouldn’t accept you unless you were like the other women and he didn’t want his father to come between your relationship anymore than he already had with the Sarah bullshit 
₩ and you make up but he spends so long reassuring you that he loves you so much, just the way you are 

Seven/Saeyoung: 

✞ he was doing it again
✞ he was trying to push you away 
✞ someone had approached you while you were on the street, asking about a ‘707′ 
✞ when you told saeyoung he got so scared and reverted back to his old ways 
✞ trying to push you away so that you ‘wouldn’t get hurt’ 
✞ when you try to kiss his cheek he physically pushes you away (after acting hostile all day) 
✞ and you trip over his wires and fall- hitting your head on the ground 
✞ he’s shocked, you’re shocked 
✞ he reaches forward to try and help you but freezes when you flinch away 
✞ he feels like less than shit 
✞ he feels like death himself. the grim reaper- that’s him. 
✞ he watches helplessly as you stumble to your feet and rush off to the bedroom, locking yourself inside (even though Saeyoung had control over the locks) 
✞ he spends about an hour just leaning over his desk with his head in his hands, thinking over how terrible he had been 
✞ how you deserve so much better 
✞ he was unstable. he was dangerous. 
✞ you were the light. you were everything 
✞ after a while he unlocks the door and sends your robot-cat in with flowers and a note in his mouth 
✞ it’s a handwritten letter from saeyoung, telling you he was just scared 
✞ that he was so sorry. that he loved you more than he could ever understand and he didn’t know how to deal with that yet 
✞ you slowly walk out, seeing him sitting on the ground somewhere, surrounded by the mess that he’d made 
✞ he had thrown all the cushions and pillows on the couch. ripped up the first drafts of the note. he’d even knocked one of his monitors to the ground, shattering it.
✞ you sit with him and talk together 
✞ you make a plan for how you can both deal with these times better 
✞ he promises to spend his life making sure you’re as happy as you can be

Healthy Morty Vs. Toxic Morty

At first glance, Toxic Morty appears to only embody Morty’s bad qualities. His fear, self-doubt, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, hero worship and inability to stand up to Rick. However he also holds Morty’s sense of loyalty/devotion, need to be liked, empathy, etc. That’s what makes Rick referring to him as “tiny American psycho” so perfect. Morty’s healthy self isn’t deep. He can’t be. He isn’t plagued by questions of morality, responsibility, all the things that fill Toxic Morty with fear and doubt.

Healthy Morty has no problems with Healthy Rick shooting his toxic self. Why would he? To both Healthy Rick and Morty the ends justify the means. However, it’s still not that cut and dry. It seems Morty finds his own sense of self preservation to be toxic.

Like Healthy Rick, Healthy Morty knows there’s something missing from himself. Healthy Morty would never concede to Rick. He’s too confident and independent. So he reaches for help instead by his inaction. He doesn’t hang up the phone call allowing the trace.

There will be nine types of Star Wars fans coming out of the movie theatre on December 15th...

Originally posted by coquillages-crustaces-et-moi

^Type One- the lucky ones, whose predictions came true (driving home with those that doubted them for two years)

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

^Type Two- the gracious in defeat ones, whose predictions were proven wrong but they understand the thats how it is and it doesn’t have an effect on the quality of the film

Originally posted by thegifshop

^Type Three- the furious ones, whose predictions were ALL wrong, they feel betrayed by Rian Johnson, will boycott every star wars and Disney product, they race home to angrily spread the word of their disgust online at what star wars has become  (after a week and multiple viewers they will cool down and rethink some things)

Originally posted by grapesupyournose

^Type Four- the innocent unspoiled ones, those that stayed away from every teaser, leak, rumour, and piece of promotion for the film. Not sure what to expect they enter the theatre and are the loudest to exclaim at every twist and emotional scene they HAD NOT PREPARED FOR (that was me for TFA)

Originally posted by find-a-reaction-gif

^Type five- the living in denial ones, this isn’t what they wanted at all! they cannot accept what they just saw and will live on like it never happened. They will not view TLJ as canon and may leave fandom for a while. As reality sets in they may slowly come to terms with things (much to the anger to other fans they will continue to have the same beliefs they had after TFAs release and find it difficult to move on)

Originally posted by 101treehugger101

^Type Six- the indifferent ones, whose only thought after the credits roll are    “meh”. Maybe they are disappointed, maybe they just expected more after the two year hype train. They just don’t get what everyone else is losing their minds about around them. Over time they may grow fonder of the film

Originally posted by geekylaugifs

^Type seven- the broken ones, those that stay seated as everyone leaves. They are emotionally destroyed after the inevitable cliff hanger,  they are coming to terms with the fact that disney owns their soul for yet another two years, the movie hasn’t answered all their questions in fact it has only raised more. They will be hit the hardest by the sorrows our characters will face in TLJ and will weep silently into their empty popcorn boxes as the theatre staff mutter about who should go check whether you are alright

Originally posted by peacelovecum

^Type Eight- the riding high ones, those that are blown away by this masterpiece of a film, regardless of their predictions or thoughts prior to seeing it they will rant and rave about its perfection to all their friends and will not hear any criticism 

Originally posted by usedpimpa

^Type Nine - the speculative ones, they watched the screen like a hawk taking in every detail, adjusting their predictions as the plot developed and will be walking out in a daze as they speculate further and try to put the pieces together in order to determine what Episode IX has in store for us all (this no doubt will be me)

anonymous asked:

Hi, so this is going to sound really stupid but I love to draw and I have this freind who also loves to draw and when we get together we share each others sketch books and Evey time she see mine she laughs and says that's hers are a lot better or says that I am copying her and it's making me being really private about my drawing to the point when some one looks in my sketch book I want to cry and I don't know what to do so I was wondering if you have any advice for me if not that's fine

Anony.. that is SO unfair. ,(é~è),

I’m truthfully sorry to hear about this happening to you- Artists commonly have self-confidence issues because when you draw something, you’re reaching into your mind and laying it down in reality. It’s soulful work, and to have that mocked is not cool. 😱

It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing to have this skill that you and I are both so fortunate to find pleasure in, and if someone is making you feel bad about it in ANY way, you must, must, must find a way to heal yourself from this. 

Art is as unique as a fingerprint. No matter what kind of content you draw, fanart or original, it’s a drawing YOU created because it came from YOUR fingertips. That’s something to take so much pride in and love yourself over. 👏💖

Anony, I hope to whatever god is up or down that this experience doesn’t deter you from copying other artists. I say this because it’s important to copy. It’s important to know that if you see something you like, be it a character,🐰 a shading technique,🌇 a unique mouth gesture,💋 a pose…💃 you should try it out yourself because ALL artists grow with observing, replicating, molding it into something new, and using it as a stepping stone for improvement. 🎉✏️

DO NOT let that girl get to you. If SHE says her artwork is better, let her believe whatever she wants. Because art👏 is👏 not👏 a👏 race.👏 You have already won in this world because YOUR art is YOURS and nobody elses. Embrace the things that makes your artwork unique.

That was always the hardest part for me. I didn’t like my linework because I liked how so-n-so drew theirs so clean while mine is messy.

But darling, once I learned to embrace my messy lines, I’ve been able to improve and focus more on the soul in a drawing rather than it bein’ pretty. An’ it’ll improve with time, anyway.

My advice; If you’re having fun, you’re doing it right.

Hugs and kisses Anony, keep your chin up, don’t let anyone put a wet blanket on your passion. XOXO

Punk (Chap. 12)

Summary: You’re head over heels for your best friend Bucky and hate the nickname he gave you as it doesn’t exactly scream romance.

Word count: 3923

Warnings: language, talk about injuries, sarcasm (sometimes jokes are okay)

A/N:  Thank you all for the amazing feedback and support on the last chapter.  I’m completely blown away and ecstatic that you like the story.  I hope you like this next part, it’s a little drawn out but I had some angst I needed to get out.  Feedback is always appreciated.  Thank you again for your patience between updates.  



Apparently Natasha didn’t actually want you to answer that question.  She was ranting and raving, throwing her hands in the air, pointing a polished, accusatory finger in your direction.  She switched from English to Russian so quickly that it seemed as is if she were a one-woman show playing all the parts.  You couldn’t get a word in edgewise though.  Every time you opened your mouth to reply she merely answered herself or spoke right over you with a barrage of “what were you thinkings” “you could have dieds” “I’ve never seen anything do stupid in my entire lifes” “what the hell is wrong with yous” and what you suspected were several rude and explicit Russian insults.

So, I left again, with good reason, mind you. I’ve been dealing with some things BUT I think (I THINK) I’m finally back to stay, hopefully! Moving on to the good stuff…I finally caught up to the new chapters and OMG WHAT

I’ve complied my favorite moments below with some of my usual (highly biased) opinions on the last few chapters of the manga. Spoilers!

Yuri’s first kiss was from Otabek.

Yuri had been ranting and raving, going on about Viktor and Yuuri, complaining about how affectionate they were. They should have the decency not to do it right in front of his face, Yuri had thought. Maybe he was sexually frustrated, or jealous of the two, but he tends to get pretty heated when complaining of their PDA.

Otabek listens, nodding and saying, “yeah,” where it fits. When Yuri pauses, Otabek asks, “have you considered that you may envy them?”

Yuri flares again, shouting, “envy them? That level of love is sickening! And they’re always touching each other, why would I envy that?”

Otabek simply shrugs while approaching Yuri, hugging him slowly from behind.

“What’re you d-” Yuri starts.

Otabek murmurs, “you’re telling me you don’t ever get jealous when they hang on each other like this?”

“Well- I mean,” Yuri tenses and his cheeks redden.

Otabek chuckles softly, and moves away, taking a seat on the bed.

“Hey, wait a second,” Yuri argues. “That’s not fair!”

“Why not?”

“Because-”

“Because I was right. You’re jealous of them.”

Yuri crosses his arms. “Why do you get to tell me how I feel?”

Otabek stands again, and approaches Yuri, bodies mere inches apart.

“Because I /know/ how you feel. You want what they have, don’t you?”

Yuri opens his mouth to reject the claim but cannot find words.

“Tell me I’m right,” Otabek breathes out.

“I mean,” Yuri stammers. “Maybe a little bit, but-”

Before he can finish, Otabek places his lips onto Yuri’s, cupping the back of his neck with his hand.

When Otabek pulls away, Yuri stares at him momentarily, dumbfounded. “Okay, you may be slightly more right than I thought.”

MY BABIES ARE DONE. *dies*

An Aftermath.

Perhaps a glimpse of the first time that Hubert really lost his temper, really, and that infamous Duck Temper showed its colors. 

I can imagine that while they weren’t in the best situation financially or in regards to living conditions before they moved into McDuck Manor, Huey had no outlet for his frustrations, if there even were any with such a quiet lifestyle.

But with change comes opportunity for feelings to take flight. Poor Repressed Huey has played the part of the calm, collected older sibling for so long that once they have a steady and reliable home environment that can of worms will eventually pop open without the pressure weighing down the lid.

And oh. Does it take everyone by surprise when it does. He’s so unpracticed in managing his anger that he is too overwhelmed to do much more than rant and rave and maybe break something if it’s close enough in range. But it’s so concentrated that one might think a bomb went off.

Louie probably said something trivial that he thought was an innocent poke of fun. A tease that pushed the wrong button.
But I’d like to know what everyone thinks might be a possible “Berserk Button” for our little Hubert. Please tell me your thoughts.

If there is no TMI book series that the show was based on, then Clace would’ve make next to zero sense. It’s just another one of those cliche main character fell in first crush/lust with the golden boy trope… that sooner or later they would matured more and drifted apart to be with those who are more suitable with them and their needs. 


UNfortunately most fans were influenced by books and refused to see the show as a body of its own and that unlike in books, characters in the show would develop their own identities and chemistry with each other due to them being actual human beings. For example, Simon and Izzy hardly interact in the show but already people been going on and on about ‘Sizzy’ since from 1st ep.


Climon was doomed from the start as there is little to no support from viewers. Regardless the fact that Clary actually looks happier with Simon and Jace has more chemistry with Maia. 

i know Clace is the end game couple.. obviously~.

But the level of hatred against Climon is seriously mental!

Say what you want, Simon don’t deserve to be humiliated and treated like this.. no matter how pretty and hot you think Jace is and how perfect he will be with Clary (honestly for me he needs someone like Maia who would challenge him and keep him on his toes and gives more depth to his character)

Yes, I know there’ll be Sizzy (maybe) and Clary will just be his friend again.

But the way it gonna happens makes me feel… sad for Simon.


Fans are so impatient. 

They want Climon to end NOW and for Clary to jump straight into Jace’s arms - forgetting that she needs to step away from relationships for a while.. to just be independent and grow up a little.. to find out and make sure who and what she truly wants and needs. 

They want Sizzy to happen NOW - disregarding the fact that Simon needs time to recover from getting his heart broken and..humiliation (Imagine, someone you’ve been  in love with forever, finally thought you are finally worth it and convinced that they feel the same and found out, nope. Sorry, you’re never gonna be good enough AND to found out so publicly..), for Izzy to find and be her own person again. 

They want Malec to live together NOW NOW NOW and adopt Madzie and other 3.5 Downworlder kids.. ignoring the fact that IF Alec moves in with Magnus, it means he wont be the leader of the institute anymore (yes, i know there are people saying that he can stay with Magnus AND be the leader at the same time. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way, okay.. Alec is on shaky ground as it is with his fellow Shadowhunters - what with him dating a male Downworlder and sudden promotion to be the leader - add him moving out of the Institute into his BOYFRIEND (the warlock) place on top of that? they’ll be questioning his integrity and dedication to the Institute for sure!).. and how on earth could they ever adopt a child when their own life is still so chaotic - not to mentioned, Magnus loves Alec so much but still can’t quite trusts Alec is feeling the same.


I am NOT saying that your OTP is wrong/shouldn’t happen.

But give them space.. and time to grow up. To develop that chemistry on their own..

They’re not just 2D characters on papers anymore- there, open and available to be changed and manipulated to suits the author’s whims and fancies at any given time. 

They’re now actual living persons.

We can see all the happy laughter and frustrated tears and those warm shine in their eyes when they look at their loved ones (Harry is amazing at showing this).

Each of them deserves to be respected (and loved) as individual character.. rather than just the other 50% of a couple.  


Fans want the characters to be relatable and realistic.. but their expectations of the characters development are irrational.

They want good plot but at the same time complaint that things aren’t moving at speed of light.

Working with what you have

Put down that overly priced herb bag you bought on etsy from some witch, today I want to talk about working with what you have on hand and what is around you, with an example from my life.

Many crafters of various paths will always rant and rave about “connecting with the land” and “using what is natural in that area”, and today I want to expand on that.  Back in the day, when any aspect of the craft did not have mountain rose herbs or all these stores you can go to and buy herbs they had to go out and forage for these plants.  This practice was, and still is, an extremely personal way to get to know the land and connect with it, and the spirits that dwell in it.  

So for example, I go to uni in an area where there is not a whole lot of anything, most of the year it is winter, we have shit soil, and we are in the middle of a mountain chain; so not a whole lot grows up here.  Despite all of that, nature finds a way, there is still all sorts of life to be researched (both magickally and mundane).  Whether you live in the desert, by the ocean, or suburbia you can always find some local life to work with, be it plant or fungi.

Now you are probably thinking “yeah I have heard this a thousands time, but what is that ugly thing in that photo?”, well guys gals and non-binary pals that is Epifagus virginiana aka “beech-drops”.  While this area does not have a lot of plant life we have a whole hell of a lot of this.  Epifagus virginiana is a parasitic plant that gets its nutrients solely from the roots of Fagus grandifolia (aka the American Beech tree); this is why there is no chlorophyll in this plant and why these plants are brown, and not green.  Now, not knowing any lore or properties about this plant I can deduce what I can use it for just going off of the fact that I already know what it is.  I know I can use it for baneful magick just because of the fact that it is a parasitic plant.  This is how you try to figure out what a certain plant could be used for in witchcraft.  Now obviously I already know something about this plant since I know its scientific name, and in this modern age; you can find articles/books/etc on just about whatever you want to try to find out.  Now, what if you are a hermit and live in a cave?  Well I dont know how you are reading this then but  your town has a library and most libraries have articles an books about local plant life, especially local plant life.  

Connecting with nature is an extremely rewarding experience for a crater of any path, and I am not going to rant about all the benefits it has on your craft and what you can gain, I leave that for the curious person who wishes to find out firsthand.
