stop with the charts

You guys need to understand why this is actually so monumental for EXO – this #1 is COMPLETELY different from the other times [REMINDER!] MELON CHANGED THEIR CHART to make it difficult for idols! Like sure album sales are amazing, but so many people like to pretend that EXO has no public presence or that it’s only because of “crazy fangirls streaming at midnight” that their songs would get#1. This is why when Melon had their chart reform and changed the timing to the noon/evening, everyone was quick to say “RIP EXO” “Guess they won’t be getting number one songs since no one Korea knows them”

Because to do well during this time you NEED to have BOTH an ENORMOUS fandom AND a huge public presence, which is nearly impossible. NO group has managed to get a #1 after the chart reform because it is just THAT difficult. Only GDragon and IU who are known as “DIGITAL MONSTERS” were able to debut #1, not even Twice or Red Velvet although they performed well. This reform was MADE to STOP idols from taking over the chart and represent the public taste

But would you look at that

What? What was that you said? EXO are “digital flops?” “No one in the public knows them?” “It’s only crazy fangirls?” “EXO are declining?”

Sorry couldn’t hear you over the sound of complete, and utter digital slayage

Cards on the Table (Taron Egerton)

Originally posted by senxrfoggy

Summary: They dealt the cards in their hands when it came to their relationship, but there was always one that they kept hidden in their sleeves.

Author’s Note: I don’t normally write imagines for real actors, but my thirst levels are off the chart and I couldn’t help myself when I got this idea. I wrote it mainly for myself so I just want to publish it here for fun. Enjoy!


Their relationship always seemed a bit simple once they laid their cards out on the table.

Being cast as one of the main bodyguards for the villain in the new Kingsman movie meant spending quite a bit of time with the main cast. Even more so when her role involved seducing Taron Egerton’s Eggsy Unwin in the script. They got along quickly, and it didn’t take her long to know that she was attracted to him.

Who wouldn’t be? He was very cute and sweet and made her laugh. She had almost let it develop into a crush. Almost.

After a long day of shooting on the set, Taron, herself, and a few of the cast went out to a nearby bar for drinks. A few rounds in, the conversation had turned in the direction of relationships and types. She had no type, she said. If she was attracted to a guy, she was attracted to him; it didn’t matter what his hair color, eye color, or race was. Simple.

Taron’s was simple as well. “I like older women,” he answered. That was his card, and that was when she knew she didn’t stand a chance; she was two years younger than him. One of their co-stars said that people always end up dating beyond their types. She (almost) wanted to believe that was true and keep that glimmer of hope, but her thoughts quickly shut it down. Why wouldn’t it work between Taron and an older, more mature woman?

She was most definitely not that.

Okay the day you start making death threats at creators for not following what you want them to do with THEIR characters..

You really need to get off the damn internet.
Take a chill pill.

Pet a fuzzy animal.
Skyrocket to Pluto and chill the fuck out.

Don’t over-identify with your chart.

Don’t get too worked up about it. It’s toxic.

Something that I see and hear way too often, mostly on here and when talking to people that don’t really understand astrology in real life, is people seeing their chart, exploring it, and then starting to act “more” like it, describe themselves according to their chart, or only just getting way too worked up over it. Stop. You’re not a chart. You’re a human.

Your chart is not supposed to be a guide for you telling you how to act, it’s not some sort of magical enlightment after which’s discovery your life will magically truly begin because you found out who you are and what you’re supposed to do. It’s easy to do, humans yearn for something that gives them direction. That can be the government, laws, their friends, families, institutions, it can come from within (meaning you built yourself your own structures and rules. Some of which are called morals. That’s besides the point, though) or from outside, and astrology is all to easy to use for this because it literally tells you “hey, look at this. this is you.” but that’s not what you’re supposed to do with it. I’m going to quote @astrologymarina here because she put it really nicely:

“Trying to play out your birth chart is not being yourself. Exaggerating all the traits associated with your placements is not authenticity. Don’t worry about becoming your chart, because you can’t not be it.”

ESPECIALLY as humans, we really tend to, at times (or really, all of the time, just to different measures), put a selective lense over our perception - we don’t see everything at once with complete objectivity, ever, not even our actual bodily sight works like this. When looking at your chart, you will always find one or multiple things that catch your eyes most - maybe because, at the time, this part is a big theme in your life, or maybe because it seems exceptionally fitting, or especially foreign. It really doesn’t matter. The point is that, with your selective perception, you will start to decide on (and will see this deciding as “finding”) “focal points” in your chart - something that not actually exists as your chart is just an objective screenshot of the firmament at the time of your birth. This is one reason why many astrologers don’t “believe” in dominants - it creates the illusion of a “focal point” in your chart that takes the wheel and drives around the globe with all the other planets, signs, placements, and aspects in the backseat.
Back to the topic: With this selective perception, you’re bound to be tempted to over-identify and work yourself up over something. Very typical examples for this are the sun, moon, dominants, and on another, smaller level lilith and chiron. @venusian5 talked about this earlier, but people tend to get overly fatalistic over lilith and chiron because they don’t represent something (conventionally) “good” in your chart (you can read the rest of what he said here). The sun and moon are other common parts for this due to the emphasis many astrologers put on them.
Especially people who don’t have a good grasp on themselves and are rather unaware of themselves are prone to over-identify with their chart. It’s easy, it’s comfortable. You have something telling you who you are and how to be, no need to figure it out yourself anymore, right? It’s natural to not be self-aware to some extent and to wish for it to be that easy, but you shouldn’t use astrology to escape the need for self-reflection and self-growth. 

Don’t use your selective view of your chart to over-identify with some parts. You’re all of them - if you don’t identify with some, you either a) haven’t grown into them yet, b) have already transcended them (though in these two cases, you can still always see “traces” of them), c) don’t understand them properly, d) ignore other parts that influence this one, or e) simply deny this part. This is not supposed to be a call-out, we’ve all been there at some point. The thing is you shouldn’t stay there because it’s comfortable. Astrology is not designed to be comfortable. Modern western astrology likes to romanticize (and fatalise) lots of placements, but that’s not the way to go. 

Astrology is supposed to enhance your life, not limit it even more by having you limit yourself to what you think your chart tells you.
