sharing the planet

Some Nerd: You see, we humans communicate with each other not only through verbal sounds, but also using signals with our body, especially our hands. For example, when I raise my arm like this and wave it back and forth…

Alien: Dude, we’ve been observing your planet for decades. We know about fucking waving, you asshole.

Some Nerd: Oh. I’m sorry, I thought…

Alien: Can you tell us why some humans live in excessive luxury while others live in poverty despite you all sharing the same planet, and have had the technology to transport goods across oceans for over a century?

Some Nerd: Eh….

Alien: Didn’t think so, numbnuts.

The signs and the sign they least get along with

Aries: Pisces // They’re the dreamers. The quiet ones. The ones you could never understand if you tried. You don’t understand their silence, their watching. You don’t understand how they’re never up and around and socializing like you always are. You don’t understand how they can be so silent when communicating and living can be so fun. But at the end of the day they soothe you and calm you and the craziness in your world.

Taurus: Aquarius // They baffle you. How they sweep from emotion to emotion vexes you. How they go from being bubbly to shutting down completely irks you. They’re too aloof. They’re too confusing for you. You can’t keep up with their mental processes. But they also let you open up and feel free–if only for a minute.

Gemini: Virgo // Though you share the planet of Mercury, they’re too headstrong. Too immaculate. Too anal. They’re pragmatists but you’re free thinkers. You go with your thoughts and you run with them, but they need to sit down and plan it out. They’re too stubborn for you. But they’re also the intellectual equal that can not only challenge you, but complement you as well.

Cancer: Aries // They’re too high energy, they’re just too much. Their minds move a mile a minute and so do their actions so not only do they exhaust you mentally, they exhaust you physically too. They’re too flamboyant and too dramatic. Overall they can be too extra for you. But at the end of the day, you know you couldn’t live without them.

Leo: Capricorn // They have an abrasive personality to you. Not only are they silent and serious, they can be know-it-alls too which are all turn offs to you. You need big personalities, ones that intrigue you and make you laugh. People that make you feel good, not just in general but about yourself as well. But they’re too quiet and too calculating. However, they also challenge and push you and will always help you up if you fall. You’d make an unstoppable team.

Virgo: Libra // They’re too dreamy. Too optimistic. Too unrealistic. They’re the zen ones, the ones that always seem to have everything in control. You can’t understand how they seem to push past everything with a sunny disposition. You can’t seem to fathom how they keep themselves together. In the end, you dislike them because they’re everything you wish you could be.

Libra: Scorpio // They’re too twisty. And confusing. You enjoy peace and ease but they’re just so…? There’s no word for it. You can’t describe it. It’s vexing. They’re alluring and enthralling, but overall a recipe for disaster for you. But they’re also the ones that you can say anything to and spill your soul out to and though that’s difficult for you, it’s a necessity.

Scorpio: Gemini // They’re too flighty. Too intuitive. You feel like they can see right through you and that’s something you do NOT want. You like your privacy but they’re too inquisitive, they want to know every detail of you and that’s way too intrusive for you. That’s YOUR job. You like to analyze and figure people and the world out from afar, but they do it out loud. And personally. But at the same time, if you sat down with them and actually talked one-on-one, you could probably come out of the conversation with the whole world figured out. 

Sagittarius: Taurus // They’re too steadfast. Too stubborn. They’re the bull but you’re the bull fighter. You need to be free and float. You need to explore and dream. But they need a plan and they need consistency. They’re oil and you’re water. But they’re also the ones that bring you back down when you drift too far up. They’re your rock.

Capricorn: Cancer // Though they are your sister sign, you dislike how they wear their heart on their sleeve. You dislike how they bleed, live, breathe emotions. They drown you with their affections and love. Their fickleness. And the second you open up the second they pick at your vulnerabilities. And you abhor their constant mood swings. They vex you completely and utterly. But they’re also the ones that taught you that it was okay to show the slightest bit of emotions and they were also the ones to teach you there was kindness in the world if only you let yourself see it.

Aquarius: Leo // They’re too big. Too proud. Too egotistical. Their personality is stifling to you. Sure you can be big, you can be proud, but at the same time you know when to be quiet. You know when it’s too much. They don’t and you can’t stand it. You’re more aloof, more calculating, more meticulous. They’re more gregarious, more easy going. They’re the social butterfly and you’re the introvert. But you also know that if you got to know them, you’d discover that not only do they have a golden personality, they have a golden heart too. 

Pisces: Sagittarius // They’re too loud. They’re too high energy. They’re too dramatic. Their presence and overall personalities are draining to you. They need to be active and they need to know and do everything in the world, but you just like to lay back and experience. They live too fast and you feel like they cause more trouble than it’s worth. But they can also make you laugh and bring you out of your comfort zone, which is good every once in a while.

Writing Prompt

Can someone please write a story in an alternate universe where humans and aliens are friendly to each other and a mixed-species crew are going to earth for the resident humans to see their families again and no one else has ever been there and the humans always hyper focus one one or two things about it so the others don’t have a lot of knowledge about earth, and they’re just so freaked out by all the deadly things they find there

and then they visit Australia cause one of the human crew members has grandparents or cousins or someone there, but they’re not Australian themselves so the aliens are just…so unprepared.

btw for the people still worried about andromeda being a “colonialism simulator” (spoilers):

- the planets chosen were believed to be uninhabited 600 years ago (but there was extensive first contact protocol written in the extreme unlikelihood they’d meet another sapient species)

- you cannot colonise the angaran homeworld (havarl) or any sovereign angaran planet (aya, voeld). you can be invited to leave a small contingent of scientists (to study the vault’s effects on havarl to help make it viable for the angara again) or set up a base that works alongside the angara (running ice on voeld for both initiative and angaran settlements).

- the angara are also invited to the nexus and appear in colonies on shared planets such as kadara.

- there are no other sapient species in the system, aside from the kett who are invaders, not natives or settlers. you cannot displace anyone, invade anyone, make yourself at home anywhere you are not welcome.

- you can even give a random civilian who suggests settling on aya uninvited a dressing down for being disrespectful

just so you can avoid alarmism and false info. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh my goodness!😢 Don't get me started on Narti.😁 She was awesome as well! That mind control ability 👏👏 Potential wasted!

Everybody needs to see this. Share, Reblog, Like. Raise awareness.

Raise your hand if you're still emotionally distraught from the events of the movie and the deaths of the characters.

Because I’m still thinking over Caesar’s slow death and so many others + events in the film.

This is true for natal placements but, as I have found, also for transits! whenever venus is transiting my 2nd house, i have a very strong desire to go shopping!! but i have natal saturn so im naturally thrifty.

Just some awesome photo’s I found scrolling through Facebook this morning :)

Loving the photo of Koba and Caesar painting the graffiti on the wall.

Anyways I cried myself out over Caesar’s, Blue Eyes’, Cornelia’s and everyone elses deaths. Including I cried a little that Cornelius is all alone now; No Father, Mother, Brother. Maurice is probably the only one out of his chill group of friends that lived throughout ‘ALL’ three movies. At least Cornelius, Bad Ape, Nova, Lake, and Maurice will have each other and be an awesome group of friends as well.

So yeah! Totally ready now! *Got over my emotional feels in the middle of the night*

But if there are other movies and Cornelius has the main lead…I hope nothing bad and horrifyingly sad happens to him.

What can I do? (Solarpunk edition)

It warms my heart to see so much support and interest in solarpunk! I know a lot of people are wondering how they can contribute, and hopefully this answers most questions.

Firstly, I think everyone has something they can contribute–even simply listening and sharing is a HUGE help for solarpunk as a whole. Arts, design, fashion, architecture, engineering, farming, forestry, pharmaceuticals, medicine, travel/transit, fiction/nonfiction writing, industry, politics, education… whatever you work with, whatever your passions or hobbies are, you have something to contribute.

Solarpunk does not just mean solar-powered, in the same way Steampunk does not only refer to steam power.

It means looking towards a brighter future, for all of us sharing this Earth. It means seeing the options we’ve been shown for the future (post apoc trash or corporate dystopias) and saying “I refuse to accept this”.

Solarpunk is our present day -punk genre. It has the ability to spread and enact true change, if we nurture it enough.

And in that vein, to answer the question “What can I do?” We can break down solarpunk into three branches (for now):

Diversity: celebrating our differences, being empathetic, understanding and sharing multiple perspectives. Diversity in our sociopolitical lives as well as diversity for our ecosystems and economies.

Accessibility: advancement in technology cannot truly help humanity if certain classes or countries cannot access them. Disabilities (physical and mental) must be accounted for when we redesign cities for people; we must ensure everyone can get around them.

Sustainability: our current for-profit system is killing us and the beautiful creatures we share our planet with. We are wardens of Earth; we are here to protect and nurture it. Production based on need not profit, and de-industrialized agriculture. Communities should be able to function independently from the whole, in terms of necessities (food, water, power, shelter).

Along with these branches, I believe there are three other movements that will inevitably intersect with Solarpunk, if they haven’t already.

Permaculture: bringing back ancient/indigenous/sensible farming practices that we lost or considered “primitive”. Agroforestry, crop rotation, urban/vertical farming are good places to start.

Right-To-Repair: in response to companies like Apple denying our ability to maintain our own devices, there is a large movement dedicated to repairing tech in order to elongate their life cycle and prevent further waste. Why buy a phone every two years, when we could upgrade one continuously over ten?

Afrofuturism: Africa is finally beginning to get back on its feet after the imperialist Rape of Africa era. African Americans are strengthening their voices and cultural ties in this Eurocentric digital age. I cannot properly do this movement justice; it isn’t my voice that should be telling you. Supporting and uplifting the voices within this movement is crucial to not only Solarpunk, but to the wider goal of harmony and reparation.

The most important facet of Solarpunk is perspective: not everything will work for everyone, and listening to marginalized people is absolutely essential to growing our movement.

Be safe, be kind, and spread some love.

anonymous asked:

Hi. What planets in 12th house do you consider being fluid and planets more hard to deal with ? Thank you

This is a very deep and profound topic to discuss…the nature of the 12th house is so grand that the human mind can’t even begin to understand it’s lack of boundaries…in the 12th house there is no “best” or “worst” expression of any of these planets….Any of the planets here can be used for the good of all mankind or for the destruction and ending of the self….They all have equal potential in their own ways….

Venus, Jupiter, Neptune all have an ability to heal on a great lever due to their compassionate nature of being linked to the 12th house.  Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and it rules over the 12th house naturally.  Neptune is of course naturally at home in the 12th and really stresses the good and the bad. Jupiter is anciently ruled by Pisces which is at home in the 12th due to it’s link to spirituality, religion and faith in general.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Uranus and Pluto tend to struggle more, especially the inner planets.  If you ever wondered how a 12th house planet manifests just think of the sign that rules that planet…..those are the traits that are confused and lost in the 12th house and struggle to come outward in the behavior.

Sun in 12 for instance is like a virgo ascendant with leo in 12….Struggles with having fun, confused about the sense of self.  In a sense it causes the person to work, work, work but for what reason it feels always lost to them.  Moon in 12 is like Like a Leo ascendant with cancer in 12…Troubles showing the emotions outward, recognizing their importance and place….Leo is king and needs to stand tall no matter what over the kingdom…..Mercury in 12 is like having either a Cancer Ascendant or Libra Ascendant.  In terms of cancer ascendant the thoughts are reserved for the end of the day when they have nurtured everyone else.  In similarity to libra ascendant, taking care of the self is reserved for alone time after they are done mingling out in the world and experiencing life through others.

Mars in 12….is like a taurus ascendant.  Anger is confusing, aggression is withheld internally.  Sometimes there is abuse in life in the early years that restricts the vital energy from flowing outward.  Uranus in 12 is like Pisces Ascendant.  Confusion and struggles with the individuality lead to a sense of dissolving with everything.  The subconscious here is riddled with the need to change or give the individuality away towards the benefit of all.  This is why pisces ascendant has a chameleon like appearance.  

Saturn in 12 is a bit more confusing as it outs like a pisces ascendant too. There is a larger overwhelming guilt complex floating around the subconscious where a person has trouble showing their ambitious and focused sides in life. You can see it act out like both capricorn and aquarius in 12; as it also has a bit of the flavoring of uranus in 12.  There is a desire to help underprivileged people due to feeling the guilt of the suffering of the masses;  Afterall classically Saturn classically rules over the impoverished (depressed) masses.  Finally pluto in 12….Quite a tough one.  Like a Sagittarius Ascendant, pluto in 12 shows traits of scorpio in 12.  The willful and intense side is internalized, sometimes confusing.  The need to understand the self and others is given way to the need for freedom and not being held back by the thought of being tied down (by the process of death and intimacy.)

The trick for the planets that struggle in the 12th house listed above is to realize their true potential by connecting with the source.  By researching astrology you see the confusion is only a shield created by the fog of neptune in the 12th house.  Former renowned psychic Edward Cayce shared that all of the planets have souls….by getting in touch with the soul traits of these hidden planets and understanding them we can give them to the greater good of everyone. 

Believe it or not the 12th house is without a doubt the most blessed gift in the entire horoscope…the only problem is you have to see past your own suffering and ego and merge with the ideas suffering is necessary for a great connection to everything.  Since the 12th house is the last house below the horizon before you were born, the souls of these planets were the last ones you took in with you before you were born.  You were given a gift by the universe to be something greater then the physical plane has to offer…you just have to grow into the spiritual mold and understand this through time.

One must remember the 12th house teaches us the most important lessons of all.  Life is not just us, it is everyone and everything.  Letting go of self and ego and understanding all of the struggles on the physical plane are just that…struggles and temporary.

Hey! I'm really interested in the relationship shared between the signs that share the same ruling planet, but I can't seem to find much information on it. Like what similarities and differences the two different signs (Virgo and Gemini for example) would have due to the common ruling planet influence and if those similarities and differences would make the signs more compatible or similar in their thought process etc! I was hoping you would please share your thoughts on the topic! thank you :)

The Sun rules Leo and exalts in Aries
Leo: “I am the King!” Leo is the resplendent exhibition of self expression. It’s God’s creative genius coming to life. Leo is born to lead and emanate the fabric that he has been sewn into. The whole world literally revolves around Leo, without the Sun we are nothing, Leo is equally as indispensable
Aries: Aries is fighting to form a personality, battling on behalf of his inner child for the right to flare and fire. Aries is the prince or princess who wants to rule. It’s the life quest to shine his inner sun.

Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo and exalts in Virgo
Gemini: Words! Language! I can talk! I can talk my head off and I can open your mind and release a Pandora’s box of quips into it and it will be delightful and dizzying. Geminis can read anything from gossip to scripture.
Virgo: But is this information correct? How valid is this knowledge and where can I apply it? Can my silence do the talking for me this time? It’s breaking down information like minerals and nutrients.

Moon rules Cancer and exalts in Taurus
Cancer: The moonlight mother, under the hostage of Luna’s waxing and waning, the Cancer has moon beads shining under his skin, he is the epicentre of new life and creating new tapestry. The female fertility principle
Taurus: Facilitates the new life of daisies and dandelions. Gives birth creatively, to sound, poetry, and architecture. The male fertility principle

Venus rules Libra and Taurus and exalts in Pisces
Taurus: This is a pure love of every sensual, sexual, and artistic form. It is an appreciation for love, life, and beauty. It is exquisite the form of a body, the taste of cherry chapstick, the sensation of massage oil
Libra: Everyone is God in human form to Libra, it is connecting, collaborating, socialisation, finding yourself in someone else, losing yourself into something deeper. Devoutly seeks partnership - marriage or otherwise
Pisces: Searches for a marriage with the Divine Source, wants to re ignite the love story between her and God. Because Pisces is all encompassing, the  frequency of love itself

Mars rules Aries and Scorpio exalts in Capricorn
Aries: Aries doesn’t contain his Mars, its like flashing lights - sparks from an electrical socket, the energy radiates from their pours and is
reflected in their restlessness
Scorpio: Internalizes and holds Mars like a battery. Energy caverns inward, the streams, volcanic eruptions, and confronting a battlefield within
Capricorn: Internally systemized Mars energy then directed externally, into tweaking surroundings and moving forward with worldly ambitions. I think
Capricorn equally distributes mentally and somatically..there is
resonant streams of high octane intensity in Capricorn that isnt erratic
and volatile

Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Piscesand exalts in Cancer
Sagittarius: The vision that extends beyond the horizon, a quest for the expansion of consciousness that lures the individual across land and sea, searching for meaning, wisdom, and personal experience. Searches for intimacy with the Source through nature, the universe, and learning
Pisces: Jupiter is the Piscean faith and belief. Jupiter is turned inward for spiritual pilgrimage. Idealism and vision. The lenses into the divine are enlarged and the hidden is magnified. This is how Pisces see, feel and hear  divinity in lucid perception.
Cancer: This is the exploration of the far inner landscape, traveling the amniotic fluids and valleys of the divine kingdom that rests inside. Can dwell within to find the spirit

Saturn rules Capricorn and Aquarius and exalts in Libra
Capricorn: Life is under the command of discipline, diligence, and duty. The voice of the critic is deafening inside the Capricorn mind, and there is little room for lethargy or half attempts
Aquarius: There is tremendous depth and perception in Aquarius. Limitation with personal acceptance of belief. Saturn is where traditional astrologers claimed Saturn “rejoiced” in masculine territory with moist air jubilation. Saturn gives Aquarius a pedantic mental state, a need to project ideas onto humanity
Libra: The sign of law and justice expresses fluidly in the planet of authority and establishment. Libra has  through every idea and perspective, and the decree of Saturn is wade through every factor and reach a conclusion based on rationality and fairness.

-Cherry

Aries Mercury: When you keep finding yourself interrupting others. You really aren’t a rude person! Just enthusiastic about your message.

Taurus Mercury: When you miss a good comeback or witticism because you take your time with communication and decisions.

Gemini Mercury: When you can’t find the right words for how you feel or when your emotional expression just doesn’t come out right.

Cancer Mercury: When people think you are standoffish or hiding something, but seriously you’re not! You might just be quiet or chillin.

Leo Mercury: When others think you are too insensitive, loud, or intimidating. You’re just being real/being you!

Virgo Mercury: When others beat around the bush and you just want the facts! Or people ask how you feel and you don’t want to talk about it.

Libra Mercury: When others mistake your politeness for something more or you always end up being too nice.

Scorpio Mercury: When someone is being nice or getting to know you and you can’t help but be suspicious of their intentions.

Sagittarius Mercury: When you accidentally misled someone again due to your own excitement or jumped into a decision too quickly.

Capricorn Mercury: When people think you don’t listen, you just believe in straight answers! Why waste time on small talk?

Aquarius Mercury: When someone misunderstands you AGAIN! Your messages don’t always align with the group.

Pisces Mercury: When you are too vague with a message again or totally forgot something important to share/say.
