How To Spot Faeries

1. Spheres of Light

One of the most common ways fairies and other ethereal beings are noticed, is as spheres, flickers or glints of light. It’s very common to see it around mushrooms, blooming flowers and springs. People associated with fairies (children of fairies) can watch these lights anytime. You may also notice unexplained movements out of the corner of your eyes.

2. Chilling sounds and music

Once you’ve entered the fairy Realm nothing is the same. Soft sounds may greet the strangers who enter the fairy land. Whether it’s the sound of various wind instruments - like the flute - or a simple sound - like the welcoming sound of tiny bells - it’s absolutely the same. Allegedly, if you ring a bell over a spring or pond you may see the reaction of fairies responding to your invitation.

3. Fairy Rings

It’s long believed that fairies love to sing and dance at night. They usually dance around a circle. Many who stay in forests at nights claim to have heard wonderfully enchanting songs, while later in the morning they find mushroom circles, circles of flowers or trace of footprints of human-sized nymphs dancing known as the Fairy Rings. Many believe that the “Fairy Rings” are the Gateways to the Fairy World. Respect the fairy rings and always ask for permission before entering the Circle.

4. Laughter

As Fairies are - almost always - described as cheerful creatures, when you are close with these entities it very likely to hear laughter or feel the urge to laugh. The feeling of joy fills your heart and lasts long!

5. Scent of Flowers

You are walking down a path, or even a road while your nose is filled with an overwhelming scent of flowers like Iris or Violets, or even the scent of the grass like it just rained or maybe it smells like walnuts, apples or grapes. As fairies are often associated with flowers, plants and trees, this could be the work of a playful Fairy sprinkling scented fairy dust to you, blessing you or trying to catch your attention.

6. Deviations of the Air

The “fairy wings” may cause a light breeze on the area around a fairy. Whether it’s actually the wings or the energy shift around the ethereal being does not really matter. Pay attention to the leaves around you. A gentle whirlwind may be a solid proof that a fairy (or fairies) like your company.

7. Animals around you Act Weird

You notice that you are being followed by birds like ravens, your cat acts weird, staring at something for minutes (with no apparent reason) or play with the air while your dog is nervous or probably bark at something you do not see. As Fairies could be described as the Souls of Nature they can easily cause phenomena like this.

8) Milk or Beer goes bad and candies are missing

Your milk has gone bad before its actual expiration date and so does your beer. You may also notice that milk is less as if someone drunk it while you are certain that no one would ever drink from your milk. This could be a sign of a fairy who entered you house. Try to contact them rather than getting angry.

9) Jewellery and shiny objects are missing

Before you call the police try to look around if you can find them in other places. Fairies love to play with humans in this way. They enjoy “stealing” stuff like this and hide them in different places. It is said that Fairies love all shiny objects and that’s what they love to take first. Keys or with fancy keychains is a “fetish” for this wonderful creatures. Be kind to them. They -almost- always return them!

10) A sense of warmth on your skin

The energy of the Fairies - when is in close contact with your aura - can be felt like tiny vibrations of energy on your body, or heat on your skin. You may actually feel the warmth of the beloved creature as a gently tingling or tickling on part of your body.

11) Flowers (and other plants) sprouting from bizarre places

This is another phenomenon that is often associated with the presence of Fairies. You may notice that from one second to another a flower has bloomed while you could swear that you have not even seen it at all! This is very common when Casting Fairy Witchcraft or a Ritual which invokes Fairies. If this happens in your house it means that you have a winged visitor… or maybe visitors! 

12) The Eyes of the Woods

Have you ever felt that trees are watching you as you walk down the path in a forest? Have you ever felt the presence of something really strange when you are alone and the night-sky is full of dazzling stars? The Trees may - indeed - have eyes of their own, as they are probably inhabited by magical creatures as Fairies (of course it can also be elves, gnomes or other entities). Greet these trees and ask for guidance and protection.

What’s Up for March 2017?

What’s Up for March? The moon hides red star Aldebaran and crescents dazzle after dusk.

On March 4 the first quarter moon passes between Earth and the star Aldebaran, temporarily blocking our view of the star. This is called an occultation. 

The occultation begins and concludes at different times, depending on where you are when you view it.

The event should be easy to see from most of the U.S., Mexico, most of Central America, the Western Caribbean and Bermuda. 

Observers along a narrow path from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Hartford, Connecticut, will see the moon “graze” the star. The star will disappear and reappear repeatedly as hills and valleys on the moon alternately obscure and reveal it.

As seen from Earth, both Mercury and Venus have phases like our moon. That’s because they circle the sun inside Earth’s orbit. 

Planets that orbit between Earth and the sun are known as inner or inferior planets.

Inferior planets can never be at “opposition,” which is when the planet and the sun are on opposite sides of Earth.

But inferior planets can be at “conjunction,” which is when a planet, the sun and Earth are all in a straight line. 

Conjunction can happen once when the planet is on the opposite side of the sun from Earth and again when it’s on the same side of the sun as Earth. 

When a planet is on the opposite side of the sun from Earth, we say it is at “superior conjunction.” As the planet moves out from behind the sun and gets closer to Earth, we see less and less of the lit side. We see phases, similar to our moon’s phases. 

Mercury is at superior conjunction on March 6. 

A few weeks later, the planet emerges from behind the sun and we can once again observe it. By the end of March we’ll see a last-quarter Mercury.

 On April 20 Mercury reaches “inferior conjunction.”

Brilliant Venus is also racing toward its own inferior conjunction on March 25. Watch its crescent get thinner and thinner as the planet’s size appears larger and larger, because it is getting closer to Earth.

Finally, look for Jupiter to rise in the East. It will be visible all month long from late evening until dawn.

I thought I’d sum up all of the different characters and events that happened in Equestria one thousand years before the current timeline. Turns out Equestria was a dark and terrifying place. :v

Sometimes when I look at you, I feel I’m gazing at a distant star. It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago. Maybe the star doesn’t even exist any more. Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.

-Haruki Murakami

(Read Comic Right to Left)


At long last! The comic is here! This is part 1 of my comic, so I honestly can’t tell you when the second part is coming.

Here’s the story:

Lance Comes Home AU

Lance has been gone for months, somewhere between 3-4, and everyone has been taking a lot of emotional strain from his absence. They lost him right when they managed to find and save Shiro, and Matt has been with them for a short (but long enough) amount of time.

Allura and Hunk, being Lance’s closest friends, are freaking out and struggling to deal with him being gone, Pidge mourns the loss of her brother figure so short after finding her real brother, Shiro is struggling to keep the team together and recover from his absence…

and Coran and Keith seem to be taking it the hardest. Coran saw Lance as the son he never had (or maybe lost? I’m still thinking about giving Coran a family that died on Altea), so he’s grieving and becomes more somber and less fopish. Keith has been pinning for Lance for YEARS now, so losing him ripped his heart out. The only time he’s experienced a heartache that great was when he lost Shiro (so, two other times). So he’s just a HORRIBLE wreck, and he doesn’t know what to do.

And that’s all I’m gonna share for now! I’ll continue this soon, though! AND, I might pull a @kaxpha and make an animation? Maybe?

Thanks guys! Love ya!

talk about you (like you put the stars in the sky)

(written for @ransomweek and also @hoenursey bc i promised i would)

“We’re gonna die,” Nursey says, clinging to Ransom’s hand as they make their way up the trail. “Babe. We’re literally gonna die.”

Ransom laughs. “We’re not gonna die, Derek.”

He doesn’t need to turn around to know that Nursey’s making a face at his back. “You only call me Derek when we’re in bed or you’ve convinced me to do something terrible.”

“That is–” Ransom thinks about it. “Huh. Goddamn, bro, you’re right.”

There’s a sudden scramble and a yelp, and Nursey’s grip on Ransom’s hand jerks. Random turns in time to catch him by the elbow as he slips. “I told you,” Nursey whines, letting Ransom help him back up. “We’re gonna die. What the fuck made you think hiking at night was a good idea?”

Random grins, leaning forward. There’s enough moonlight trickling through the trees for him to find Nursey’s nose, and he plants a kiss on it. “The fact that I’ve done this with my dad and sisters since I was a kid,” he says, “and I wanted to show my city boyfriend the view.”

“It’s dark,” Nursey protests, letting Ransom start tugging him gently up the trail again. “How’re we supposed to see anything?”

“Baby, you know what night vision is. Now you’re whining just to whine.”

anonymous asked:

The chocobro's meeting a SO who seems inhumanly ethereal, only to find out that she's the half human daughter of one of the Astrals (more than likely Shiva's daughter)

Noctis is immediately in awe of your beauty, and he feels a strong connection to you because of his link with the Astrals. You ask him to treat you like any other person, and he understands––all he had ever wanted growing up was to be treated like everyone else. He respects your privacy and doesn’t ever let your secret out. Your presence calms him like no other, and more often than not you spend your time just relaxing in each other’s company, with Noctis falling asleep in your lap.

Prompto cannot believe it. This is one thing he did not see coming, had no idea that it was even possible for someone to be a demigod. He treats you a little differently at first, almost like you’re made of glass or something precious that needs to be protected, but you eventually make him promise to just be himself around you. It takes him some time to adjust, but he just wants you to be happy because he loves you so much. He can’t stop taking photos of you because you always look so ethereal, and you quickly get used to his impromptu photoshoots in the middle of the woods.

It’s the first time Gladio has been truly rendered speechless. Sure, he’s gone up against the Archaean, seen the Leviathan and watched as Noctis summoned Ramuh, but you have taken his breath away. He pulls that line, “At first I thought you were too good for me, but now I know it’s the truth” and you can’t help but laugh at his corniness. Gladio has always been interested in stories and books, and so he asks you about how your mother, Shiva, came to fall in love with your father, a mortal man. You sit together by the fire one night and you retell the story as stars dazzle across his eyes.

Ignis looks at you like he knew it all along. You weren’t sure how, but the news doesn’t seem to surprise him. He notes that you displayed certain behaviours that gave you away, small things that you’ve tried to suppress or hide over the years that he couldn’t help but notice. He assures you that your secret is safe with him, but he does have questions about what it was like being raised as a demigod. You know that Ignis has always has a thirst for knowledge, so you don’t mind telling him what it’s like, how you were raised, and some of your abilities. You offer to teach him your magic, and he turns out to be the perfect pupil.

KLAUS MIKAELSON APPRECIATION WEEK 2017:

↳ Day Three: Favorite Romantic Ship(s) + Klaroline

“Sometimes when I look at you, I feel I’m gazing at a distant star. 
It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago. 
Maybe the star doesn’t even exist anymore. 
Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.” 
― Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun 

Mars in Sagittarius - Bleeding the skyline dry

“because he had no place he could stay in without getting tired of it and because there was nowhere to go but everywhere, keep rolling under the stars…”  - Jack Kerouac

A dazzling wildlife burns a spectacular halo through the Mars in Sagittarius spirit. Energy is directed through the thighs and circulated through the active and rambunctious mind. She quivers her bow and arrow toward the bursts of stars in the distance, her vision is tremendous and her dreams are far ranging and enterprising. She longs to step foot on mysterious lands, roams under the command of free will, and satiates her childlike curiosity with every scripture and lecture hall. The Mars in Sagittarius expression is wild, free, and unconstrained. Independence is a requisite and she requires rich and full personal experiences to quell her doubt and expand her consciousness.

Mars in Sagittarius people have an equal distribution of mental and somatic energy. The individual is energized by new experiences that cross cultures and dimensions of perception. To tantalize her taste buds with exotic cuisine, read the lines on maps, or become lost in conversation with a foreigner is a source of ecstatic nourishment. Sagittarius is a sign that expresses joy with ease, so maybe when energy levels are decreased it suggests the individual is feeling distressed or ill at ease. The vital force flowing through Mars in Sagittarius is dynamic and restless. A level of physical activity is imperative for the individual’s well being and remedying of nerves. Even if she feels exhausted, getting her feet outside to play on the grass and dance under the sun becomes her energy elixir. The good things in life can call with reckless abandon, and so maybe the individual is a glutton, indulging in her self satisfying devices, like drinking or gambling to excess. This can extend toward matters of the mind too, she could streak through books or obsess about topics until she burns herself out.

There is a philosophical, intellectual, and liberal quality with Mars in Sagittarius. She loves the sensory delight of every season - the icy winter snowglobe, the balmy sun tan of summer, the crinkled leaves of autumn, the fresh colours of spring. The universe is the individual’s lover and playmate. Her mind is enchanted with musings from the thoughts of god and vivid spiritual law. There is a radiant friendliness, but an unmissable bluntness, a silver tongue that is unapologetic in its honesty. She is a hot blooded lover who exerts a free sexual expression, one that is quite liberal and engaged with her untamed side. A tremendous desire for spiritual awareness fuels her journeys by land and sea as she searches for meaning, for something more, a world where her grand intuition and intellect fuse as one. The Mars battlefield is a playground with Mars in Sagittarius. It’s filled with airports, libraries, lagoons. Her dagger is her mind, her defense is her faith, she is not lost though she wanders through strange lands, barefoot and free, searching for meaning in everything.
