Hi! What are your views on astrology and zodiac signs?
I personally don’t follow astrology/zodiac sign stuff and I don’t associate with it.
Astrology involves the false belief that stars and planets have some sort of impact on the events in one’s life. This in itself is a big red flag warning of false teaching/idolizing. We know as Christians that the truth is that only the Lord numbers our days and plans our lives. When people look at astrology/zodiac sign related content, it’s often to predict future events. For example, people read daily horoscopes which frequently predict what events will happen or who your “perfect love match” is based on zodiac sign. And the Word tells us that consulting sources/mediums to get information about future events is something He is strongly against:
“Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.“ - Leviticus 19:31
“If a person turns to mediums and necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.” - Leviticus 20:6
“There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.” - Deuteronomy 18:10-13
Under Mosaic Law, this kind of behavior warranted the death penalty for those who were guilty of it:
“A man or a woman who is a medium or a necromancer shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones; their blood shall be upon them.” - Leviticus 20:27
So anything that involves mediums/seeking answers about the future should most certainly be avoided - and astrology and zodiac signs fall into this category. He made His stance on this sort of thing very clear. As Christians, we are supposed to live by faith in Him. Consulting other sources for information about the future indicates a lack of trust in Him and is seen as an abomination by Him. And like I mentioned earlier, astrology/zodiac signs are basically pagan false teaching because the planets and stars have no bearing on our life events. So there’s really no reason for us to ever consult astrology or the zodiac for guidance in any form.
I hope you found this helpful, please let me know if you have any other questions!
I’m donating this drawing to the Anime Boston charity auction for the National MS Society. The convention is March 31-April 2, and the auction is on April 2. Mike and I also signed some cool stuff you can bid on too: a chibi Aang figure; a Korra poster book; and a plush Appa. I’ll post about it again when it’s closer to the event.
So in response to an ask I got, I thought I’d make a detailed post
First of all I want to stress the fact that Ryan Ross is a shy, awkward guy. Naturally, people tend to compare him to Brendon. But while Brendon is excitable and wild, Ryan’s quiet and introverted. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just their personalities.
Post split, a fan sent him flowers on his birthday. When she met him after a TYV concert and asked him if he got them:
His reaction when a fan gave him a gift basket:
LJ era excerpts showing how he appreciates fans’ art even if they aren’t confident about it. More recently he’s also appreciated fan art on ig
An Afysco era discussion, basically the same topic
He’s always pretty polite and respectful
Recently Z Berg talked about how he’s internet shy. So he’s not too active on social media.(x)
Another very important point is that his ex manager, sh**e used to post nasty shit from Ryan’s accounts, posing as Ryan, which confused and hurt fans.(x)
Sometimes, his sarcasm can be misinterpreted, but trust me he’s just trying to be sassy
Ryan used to feel bad about not being able to sign everyone’s stuff. Even after he’s been musically inactive I’ve never heard of him denying a fan a photo
Ryan has said he doesn’t mind fans illegally downloading his music for free.
That story about how he had so many stuffed toys in his bunk that he could barely fit but he didn’t want to throw them out cuz they were gifts from fans.
evidence that david wymack is the best character in this entire series, part i
The Foxhole Court
“I want my subs at the wall cheering them on, but if you trip up a referee, I will cut you.”
“Watch me beam with pride. It’s not your job to take care of yourself anymore.”
Wymack sliced a hand across his throat and jerked his thumb over his shoulder. Neil hoped he was right in translating it as “Let’s get the hell out of here.”
“Do you have any idea how much I hate coming home and finding you in my apartment?”
Wymack only recruited athletes from broken homes. His decision to turn the Foxhole Court into a halfway house of sorts was nice in theory, but it meant his players were fractured isolationists who couldn’t get along long enough to get through a game.
“Are you done wasting my oxygen yet?”
“Kevin, wake that dingbat without getting punched in the face.”
“You have five seconds to get your retarded psycho ass to my apartment! You even think about telling me no and I swear to god I’ll throw Kevin’s contract down the garbage disposal.”
“Your opinion has been noted and dismissed,” Wymack said. “Anything else, or are you going to start signing stuff?”
“I am going to drop you off at the dorm and spend the rest of the day drinking. Damage control can wait until tomorrow.”
“Kevin, you’re out if your hand so much as itches. Don’t be stupid tonight.”
“Coach Wymack was the only one I could think of turning to, and he didn’t disappoint me.”
Wymack snapped his fingers in front of Andrew’s face, trying to get Andrew to look at him instead of Neil.
“Damn it all to hell. Hemmick! You were supposed to wake them up ten miles ago.”
“Did you think I made the team the way it is because I thought it would be a good publicity stunt? It’s about second chances, Neil. Second, third, fourth, whatever, as long as you get at least one more than anyone else wanted to give you.”
“We saw their files,” Wymack said. “We chose you.”
“Breaking news: I don’t care.”
Neil wasn’t quite ready to face Andrew yet and he didn’t want to deal with this teammate’s curiosity over his prolonged absence, so he went to Wymack’s apartment instead.
“When I said Abby and I would look out for you, I didn’t mean you should pick a fight with Riko on national television,” Wymack said. “Should I have spelled that out beforehand?”
and my personal favorite for last
“God damn it, Minyard. This is why we can’t have nice things.”
