Amerindian signs

The Otter  January 20 - February 18

Originally posted by artyscorner

A little original, adventurous and unorthodox, the Otter is an animal difficult to identify. His methods are perceived as unconventional, and they are often not the first ones chosen by the rest of the community to carry out a task. This is a serious mistake on the part of the others - because even if they are sometimes strange, the ideas of the Otter are actually, in general, rather effective.

Yes, the Otter has an unusual way of seeing things, but it gives humans an extraordinary imagination and brilliant intelligence. Often very intuitive and capable of a great sense of perception, the Otter makes a very good companion, and can be very attentive and loving.
In a positive environment, with love and attention, the Otter is sensitive, sympathetic, courageous and honest. When left out, the Otter may be unscrupulous, rebellious and isolated.

The Wolf  February 19 - March 20

Originally posted by won-der-land89

Deeply emotional and passionate, the Wolf is the animal par excellence of love and passion, both in the physical and spiritual sense of the term. The Wolf knows that love is the greatest of natural forces, and he is entirely capable of supplying it with all his might.
If one considers his desire for freedom and ferocious independence, one realizes that the wolf is full of contradictions. He may be Solitary Wolf, or Mother Wolf, protective and filled with love. The Wolf needs his freedom, but he is also gentle and full of compassion.

In a positive environment, the wolf is intensely passionate, generous, deeply affectionate and gentle. When left out, the wolf may be recalcitrant, obsessed, vindictive and resentful.

The Falcon  March 21 - April 19 

Originally posted by sdzsafaripark

The Falcon is the animal of the born heads. It can always be consulted in order to have a clear and impartial judgment in delicate situations. The Falcon never loses time, knows how to strike / act at the right moment and beat the iron as long as it is warm. When something has to be accomplished, he knows how to realize it and act accordingly.

Very persistent, and endowed with a strong sense of initiative, the Falcon is a born leader and he wants to triumph. He is sometimes considered vain - but he is often right in his opinions, so this little touch of arrogance is understood and accepted by others.

In a positive environment, the Falcon can accomplish great things, and he knows how to feed passion and fire in relationships, while keeping some compassion. When left out, the Hawk may be vain, impolite, intolerant, impatient, and too sensitive.

The Beaver  April 20 - May 20

Take charge, adapt, to overcome the obstacles … Here is the Castor’s motto. Very talented for trade-related things, the Beaver knows how to do the job with maximum efficiency and plenty of aplomb. Strategic and cunning, the Castor is a force that can be relied on for everything that is business, diplomatic and combat.
You have to think twice about whether you want to challenge the Beaver verbally and play the smartest with him - because his mind and mental acuity are sharp as razor blades. The Beaver seems to have everything for him, but his tendency to want to always do things the way he wants otherwise nothing can get him into trouble.

Yes, the Beaver is clever, but the bearers of this Totem may have to work their sense of tact. In a positive environment, Beaver can be compassionate, generous, helpful and loyal. When left behind, the Beaver may be nervous, cowardly, possessive, and somewhat arrogant.

The Stag/Deer  May 21 - June 20

Originally posted by kryzx

This Totem animal is in a way the muse of the Amerindian zodiac. The Stag inspires, it is filled with life and its spirit turns a hundred per hour. Featuring a “tailor-made” sense of humor, the Deer has a certain amount of talent to make almost anyone laugh. He can speak and speak verbally, and he loves conversations in general.
This, combined with his natural intelligence, makes the stag a guest of choice for parties and dinners, as it will always set the mood and entertain others. He is particularly aware of the things that surround him, and he is also very conscious of his own appearance … Some will say of him that he is a little self-centered. However, they will not blame him because he is very sympathetic and affable, which tilts the balance in his favor.

In a positive environment, the natural joy of life and the sparkling personality of the deer radiate even more around it. It emanates a force of inspiration for all positive and affectionate relationships. Left, the stag can be selfish, impatient, lazy and have mood swings.

The Woodpecker  June 21 - July 21

Originally posted by scientificphilosopher

The Woodpeckers are in principle the most attentive of all Totem animals. They are always listening, with a strong sense of empathy and understanding of others. It is a sign that one must seek when one needs comfort and help.
They make very good parents, friends and partners. They also tend to be naturally frugal, resourceful and organized.

In a positive environment, the Woodpeckers are devoted, loving and very romantic. When left behind, they can become possessive, edgy, jealous and embittered.

The Salmon  July 22 - August 21

Originally posted by wavegrower

Electrical but concentrated, intuitive and intensely creative, Salmon have fishing, to say the least! Their energy is palpable. Naturally motivating, their confidence and enthusiasm is very contagious for others.
Even when their ideas seem too far-fetched to function, they still manage to embark with others. Generous, intelligent and intuitive, it is no wonder that the Salmon have no difficulty in making friends!
This Totem also express a deep need to have a goal to achieve, a function, an objective. And when they embark on adventure, they know how to find volunteers to rally them to their cause!

In a positive environment, the Salmon is stable, calm, sensual and able to give a lot. When left behind, humans born under his sign can become selfish, vulgar and intolerant.

The Bear  August 22 - September 21

Originally posted by mizar113

Pragmatic and methodical, the Bear is the Totem to be called when an inflexible and upright hand is needed. Its practical, placid and weighted aspect makes it an excellent trading partner. It is often the voice of reason, in most scenarios, and it works well in duo with the Owl, which it complements and with which it restores balance. The Bear is also endowed with an enormous heart and unbounded generosity.
However, many do not even realize it because the Bear tends to be very modest, discreet and a little shy.

In a positive and loving environment, this Totem abounds with love and generosity in return. He also has a capacity for patience and a temperate character, which makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. Left behind, the Bear may be skeptical, slow, petty and reclusive.

The Raven  September 22 - October 22

Originally posted by nitratediva

Extremely enthusiastic, naturally enterprising, the raven is a sacred charmer! It seems natural to him. One recognizes in him his energy and his lightness, and one often asks his ideas or his opinions.
It is simply because the Raven is a great idealist, and he knows how to be diplomatic and ingenious and clever.

In a positive environment, the Raven is easy to live, friendly and open, it can be as romantic and sweet. It is endowed with a certain patience and a natural intuition. When left out, the Raven can be inconsistent, demanding, vindictive and corrosive.

The Snake  October 23 - November 22

Originally posted by fencehopping

Most Shamans were born under the sign of the Snake, and it is the fetish animal of those who are devoted to the world of spirits. Those who are guided by the Snake are naturally spiritual and connected to the other worlds. They are easily attracted to ethereal kingdoms, and make excellent spiritual guides. The Snake is also respected for its ability to heal and heal, and it excels in the medicinal and medical field.
The preoccupations of the serpent for the unseen and the untouchable often lead others to find them mysterious, cold and even frightening, for they seem detached from the real world. True, the snake can be secret and have a dark side - it is also extremely sensitive, devoted to others and thoughtful.

In a positive environment, the snake can be passionate, inspiring, humorous, helpful and vigilant. When left out, the Snake may become depressed, violent, and prompt to abnormal mood changes.

The Owl  November 23 - December 21

Originally posted by ofallingstar

Changing and light as the wind, the Owl is difficult to pin down. With a warm, natural, sociable temperament, the Owl seems to be the friend of the world. Those born under his omen are known to throw themselves headlong into life, a hundred miles an hour, and adore adventure.
This can turn against her, for the Owl can be thoughtless, negligent, dizzy or even unconscious. The people guided by her make excellent artists, professors and environmentalists. However, they are extremely adaptable and versatile, allowing them to focus on virtually any field they want.

In a positive environment, the Owl is sensitive, enthusiastic, and has a great ability to listen. The owl may be excessive, too indulgent, and inconsistent.

The Goose  December 22 - January 19

Originally posted by cmdrkitten

If you want something to be done, go to the Goose. Persevering, determined and ambitious, the goose sets goals to accomplish and knows how to achieve it. The Goose is determined to succeed in what it wants to achieve, no matter what the price is - not to have the approval of others, because they are fighting against themselves and their internal enemy.
People born under the auspices of the Goose are naturally inspired and seem driven by an invisible force that drives them to realize things.
When their character is tempered by the loving presence of their family and friends, they can excel with the support of others and achieve virtually everything they undertake.

In a positive environment, the Goose can be very passionate, funny, sociable and even sensual. However, when left out, the goose may fall into obsession or addiction, which can cause its loss.

being wrong

so i’m 22 and i found out about therianthropy when i was 13. one of my idol artists had a page on their blog describing their experiences as a wolf. i went !!!! that’s me!! there’s a word for what i am! but i’m a solitary animal, not a wolf - obviously i’m a coyote!

i was wrong of course. but that’s ok, i was only 13. my behaviours didn’t change, but the coyote label was a bad fit and i dropped it pretty fast. later on when i was 19 i stumbled across therian blogs on tumblr and once again i had that !! me too!! moment. i felt claws and went aha! i’m a brown bear!

wrong again. i was territorial and bears have a home range, not a territory. i am digitigrade, bears are plantigrade. my felinity has always been glaringly, achingly obvious in hindsight. bear didn’t fit. i abandoned it out of frustration

when i began researching cats, leopard came so easy to me it was like coming home. everything about it is right. and it only took me 9 years to figure it out. it’s ok to take your time - you’ll get there eventually

Hey doc, something I've been curious about. Since Mayuyu has a pretty distinct break between her older image and current, I tend to see a lot of people who will favor one or the other. As a Mayuyu oshi, how do you personally rank her "eras" so to speak?

Interesting question. Just so we’re on the same page, I’m just going to explain my definition of what I think we’re referring to when we talk about the different stages in Mayu’s metamorphosis over the years.

We had the “Cyborg” stage, which was when she first started out up to roughly around the release of “UZA” in late 2012. This was defined by her character as a textbook idol, someone who lived, ate and breathed the aura of a ‘perfect’ idol. Her youth and position in comparison to many other AKB48 members at the time meant she also had a bit of a spoiled-brat side to herself, that further reinforced her icy, solitary, lone-wolf status.

Then we had a short “Transitional” stage that lasted between early-2013′s “So Long!” and “Kokoro no Placard” in mid-2014. With the setback of being dropped from UZA’s center position in favour of Jurina when she proved incapable of handling the heat, she appeared to realize that she was starting to stagnate, and as such she needed to improve into a more mature individual. Starting with the infamous Kato Koji kick in the head, she experimented heavily with variety TV, attempting to create what I call a “Gap Factor”. By showcasing a wilder, more unrestrained (some would say violent and repressed) side alongside her regular prim, proper image, she constructed a personality that was almost bipolar in nature, making for some pretty hilarious situations as she worked towards becoming a more competitive, viable character within 48G.

Her current “Adulthood” stage kicked off with her appointment as “Kibouteki Refrain”’s senior half of the dual-Center position, as she started to assume the duties of a senior 48G member. Providing professional advice to juniors, keeping watch over the growth of AKB48, and leading 48G’s frontliners in the PR battles we had to fight. All the while, she was also further refining her character into a more mature, multifaceted personality that seeks to establish a more holistic portfolio within the industry, with dramas, hosting gigs, stage-musical training and wider variety TV appearances.

Personally, while I thought Mayu’s “Cyborg” stage did well in establishing strong professional foundations in her work ethic, and her “Transitional” stage opened her up to a wider audience, in my opinion, the current “Adulthood” stage is Mayu at her best. It draws upon the best parts of her past - a wholesome, prim, proper and professional working character, with a weirdly eccentric side to that works perfectly in establishing hilarious situations when called upon.

Oh kallura for the ship ask thing, if you're okay with it

1. How do they fall asleep? Wake up? Any daily rituals?

I like to imagine Allura would rest her head on Keith’s chest and fall asleep to his heart beating with the daily ritual of waking up to morning cuddles :3

2. How’s their team work? Do they share well?

Their team work is already amazing in canon so it would be A+++++ across the board. But since they’re both intense people, I’m sure if they were to be against each other, it would be really extreeeeeme, haha.

8. What do they like best about their partner?

I think they’d admire each other’s determination and drive. In some ways they operate very differently, but I think they’d admire that in each other as well! For example, Allura is a diplomatic peacemaker who often functions primarily towards other people. She puts up a strong front when the team is barely holding it together and she does it FOR the team. Keith is prepared to fight, maybe more suspicious (as seen with the Arusians in the beginning), more solitary and lone wolf type. Within these differences though, I can see Allura appreciating Keith’s honest rawness and how she doesn’t have to put up a front with Keith, and Keith might appreciate that she gives him space to be and feel what he needs to.

Early morning thoughts. 

Sometimes I really suffer with my characters. Even though we should distance ourselves OOCly from them, that we’re practically just actors playing roles (characters), I - and I think the majority of roleplayers - can’t help but add a little bit of ourselves, certain aspects of our experiences and personalities, into them. Mostly it’s accidental, but definitely natural. We have characters that live lives nothing like ours, but certain personality traits are little pieces of us we’ve added to give them that ‘spark’ of something personal and familiar. I think we tend to enjoy characters that are extensions of ourselves in some way, it’s how we recognize the us in them.

Sitting on that rock overlooking the Palace, the home he was banished from, Wang So truly looks like the proverbial solitary wolf living in the moutains. However, his solitude is not of his own choosing - it was forced upon him by his own family. It feels kind of symbolic, with Hae Soo being chosen as the brave maiden who would venture to feed him when no one else does. His is such a deep loneliness that even Hae Soo can instinctively sense it and it’s what stops her in the end from leaving him there. It says so much when he doesn’t even protest when she sits down next to him under the pretext of needing to bring back the dishes. Even he can see through her lame excuse, because first, no one would care for the dishes and second, he is more than capable to carry them back himself. And he is the one who begins to talk to her being adorably embarrassed in front of her about his outburst the previous night. 

“If it’s home, I should have a family.”

Hae Soo is the only person who always finds Wang So at his weakest or when he completely loses control of himself and his emotions, and even though he threatens her each time he has never ever truly hurt her, which is why she feels so safe around him and not being afraid to say everything she wants to him, The way Hae Soo doesn’t mince words and treats WS without any fear or akwardness actually allows him to relax around her and tell her things that are on his mind, things that he wouldn’t tell to anyone. Maybe even because he never had anyone who would listen to him in the first place.

Awww, the bashful, curious sideay glances he keeps giving her! Plus they are really like two peas in a pod when they both adorably try to distract each other’s attention with a change of topic.
