What signs + aspects remind u of religion by Lana del Rey I just heard it and I can't get over it
A lot of things for many different reasons,(some of them I can’t exactly put in words)but this is what came to mind:
-Moon in Cancer,Scorpio,Pisces
-Moon in 7th/9th house
-Venus in Taurus,Cancer,Scorpio,Pisces
-Venus in the 8th/9th/12th house
-Venus in aspect to Moon/Neptune/Pluto
-Neptune in the 5th/7th house
*Now I know the subject of religion is related to Jupiter/Sagittarius/9th house but the song itself talks of a devoted,committed,spiritual love, almost as if she was dependent on love. Also, the tone of the song was soft and morose in a way. Sag is light,fun-loving,needs space. The placements listed above usually have deeper, more serious attitudes towards matters of the heart.
Random Favourite Lights Songs Playlist + Placements
So I randomly made a playlist of all of my favourite Lights songs, in no particular order (except for Child, that’s my favourite) and I am going to list every song and give it a placement that I think of when I listen to it. If you already know Lights, then judge my music taste and if you haven’t, then I implore you to go listen to her, she’s been my favourite artist for 7 years and she’s super talented!
Sweet dreams are made of this Who am I to disagree? I travel the world And the seven seas, Everybody’s looking for something.
Some of them want to use you Some of them want to get used by you Some of them want to abuse you Some of them want to be abused.
Hold your head up Keep your head up, movin’ on
This song, and placement, oozes cynicism. Moon in Capricorn grants its natives a wisdom that makes them a cold, practical, and suspicious.
Like, “This is how the world works. Everyone is out for themselves. It sucks, I’ve been through a lot (travel the world and the seven seas) but I’ve accepted it, and I’m not afraid to play by those rules.” You’ll do what you have to do to keep moving on.
note: These songs may not be 100% accurate for various reasons. They were chosen based on archetypal expressions of the aspects/placements and chances are the artist did not create the song with astrology in mind. Take them with a grain of salt, if you will.

So apparently people are being dicks (as usual) to Ed Sheeran for having fun in a cameo on Game of Thrones.
“I CAN’T BELIEVE HE SANG A SONG.”
I think everyone’s conveniently forgotten that one, there are songs on GoT anyway and two, bards exist on GoT, even in the armies. Quite a lot of emphasis is placed on music in the books as well.
Soooo…a fuss over nothing as expected then?
I'm really curious about the placement of these songs. Cause it starts out with mmith and ends with ftdt and from what we know the song placement isn't in chronological order. Why start out with mmith (the end of a relationship), loop back to songs like kiwi and Carolina (which is the most recent experience he wrote about), and then end again with FTDT, also about the end of the relationship.
Why not??! :)
I don’t mean to be flippant, but I don’t see why the album needs to be chronological. Hallway and Dining Table are the perfect opener and closer, in my opinion. Both have him alone, in a hotel room, craving something/someone. In the middle he had lots of fun, but ultimately he ends up in the same place he started.
"So effortless, I seemed to let myself decline. Loss of ambition. I pushed my dreams aside. Am I the cause of our descent, or are we chained to anchors? Mine engrossed in rust while yours still gleams and shimmers." For the song placements?

The reason I'll never see TG as a break up song is because Sweet Creature happened. I think most people who do tends to forget that these two songs come as a package. I know there's never been any confirmation of that but of all the times Harry's performed his album, most often than not, TG&SC are played back to back. Harry's also said that he's most inclined to write about his woes and the sad parts of his experiences, so I think IF they really did break up, SC would've been a v different song.
The placement of the two songs is curious, as is the constant references to blue eyes. It’s in the lyrics for “Two Ghosts.” ESNY quotes a bass riff from the Badfinger song “Baby Blue.” “Ooh Love” by Blaze Foley, on Harry’s Another Man top ten list, starts with “Blue eyes.”
Maybe it’s just because I naturally have a high vocal placement, but songs that other fans claim are too high don’t seem high to me at all. Like I’ve seen some fans claim that Cheer Up is really high but the majority of the notes sit in the middle register for me.
How do the songs fit together as a story? I always think I have it, and then I hear ruinous and I'm confused again.
Okay, to be ENTIRELY COMPLETELY honest, the over-arcing story of the album only started to come together very near the end of production and it was mainly an afterthought, as our initial goal for the album was simply to just… make it so we can say we made it and cross it off our list of goals.
However, the piecing together of the song placement was done with the story in mind, and we were careful to try and make sure that the songs had as much flow as possible in their INDIVIDUAL themes and tones/stories to better complement the theme and story as a whole.
So with that being said, I’ll list off each song in order, along with their most basic and recognizable themes:
1) Intro - Discomfort, being stuck 2) Rabbit Hole - Taking a risky leap to follow a goal 3) Worry For Naught - Anxiety, Loneliness, 4) Telescope - Searching for direction 5) I.D. - Conflict, Disorientation 6) RUINous - Disaster, destruction, apathy 7) Tranquil - Finding peace and love despite disaster 8) Turning Point - A ballad of friendship and surrounding yourself with that support 9) Gravitated - Reflection on how far you’ve come, gratitude for those who stuck by you through it 10) The Masquerade - Freedom, liberation 11) Road - Coming home after being lost, peace and rest,
At the surface level, these songs are fragmented in what they SOUND like they’re saying (which is understandable cause some of them were for sure created without the story in mind!!!), but when you line up the themes like this you can see we did try and give off the very deliberate story of these people who:
1) Are stuck 2) Decide to risk it all and escape 3) Face initial anxiety about what they could lose in the process 4) Come across conflict and dispute in the group throughout the journey, leading to disastrous events 5) In the disaster, learn to cope and mend themselves by coming together again. 6) Find peace in the ones they love despite their situation 7) Escape their captivity and finally break free, reflecting on all that they’ve been through and how they’ve changed or have forgotten what being free felt like. 8) Go home full of joy and peace, with more adventures waiting ahead.
It’s far from perfect, but we thought it was important to try our best to pull this off in spite of that! So hopefully this will help YOU understand!! Thank you for your question! <3
