Mourning bride: “I have lost all” (and I’m just a tad bit perturbed that the flower is really reminiscent of Shiro’s color scheme)
For the Flower Exchange HERE, for the wonderful
Cilan(tuckersfelix) on twitter…I’ve been raring to do some sad sheith stuff for a while now so thanks for PROMPTING me to PROMPTLY finish this wonderful PROMPT you provided to accompany this IMPROMPTU ok I’ll stop now
Look something that immediately struck me right after the “sister“ line (that we all know is a complete plug by the writers and truly means nothing) is the forehead kiss Kara gives Alex at the bar. Because it reminded me of the almost forehead kiss between Kara and Lena in 2x18.
In this episode, Kara is upset that Alex is upset and kisses her forehead. It’s a sweet, comforting gesture that Kara gives without hesitation because that’s her sister and it’s an easy thing. It’s simple.
In 2x18, you all know the scene, Kara is upset that Lena is upset, hugs her, and makes every move to kiss her forehead…and then hesitates. She moves in, her lips are right there, and she stops, instead just laying her head against Lena. Why? Because with Lena, it’s not so simple. It doesn’t have the same ease that it does with Alex. It means something different with Lena, something very decidedly non-sisterly.
Kara will cuddle up with Lena like she does in both scenes. She’ll give intimate declarations (”I will always protect you” and “those who love you will still love you”) but the forehead kiss? The one that so easily comes to Kara with her sister but she has to physically stop herself from giving Lena even though she wants to? It’s because Kara’s scared.
And that’s just one of the many reasons the sister comparison makes me laugh because it is just so untrue.
WARNING: This curse is extremely aggressive. Use caution and prepare properly. This curse CAN AND WILL try to come back on you. Wards, cleansing, etc, is highly recommend. Please proceed with caution.
This curse was inspired by a certain someone and my hatred of them because of terrible things they did to me and others close to me (do not ask because I will not talk about it) and is intend to break the target physically, mentally, and emotionally.
What You Need
💀 A small jar (like the one seen above)
💀 A piece of paper with the target’s name on it (first and last is best)
💀 Cayenne Pepper or Lemon Juice
💀 2-3 zip lock/plastic bag
💀 Something to hit the jar with (I used the handle end of a scissor)
💀 First write the target’s name on a piece of paper, put it in the jar, add the lemon juice/cayenne, and then seal the jar tightly.
💀 Put the jar in the plastic bag. You’ll want double or triple bag it since you will be breaking the jar. I used two myself and I recommend no less than that.
💀 Place the bag on a flat surface. Think of all the things your target did to warrant this curse. Build your rage, become engulfed with anger. Before you break this jar picture your target’s body/bones breaking and shattering, picture their psyche shattering like glass and crumble in to a pile of rubble. and picture their happiness and destroy that as well.
💀 Strike the jar only once or twice. You want your intent to do most of the breaking. Dispose of accordingly and them immediately cleanse yourself and your surroundings. Do something mundane as well.
You have to allow yourself the space of not knowing who you are, what you want, what your purpose is, before you can discover it or you’ll perpetually be fabricating a false sense of identity instead of allowing your true self to rise to the surface.
The sound of something steadily beeping in your ear brings you back to the surface of consciousness. You wade through the murky waters of your mind, trying to keep your cool when the simple task of opening your eyes turns into a losing battle.
Why can’t you open your eyes? Why does your body feel so heavy?
You grow more frantic as your body fails to follow through on any of the commands you direct at it. It’s not until you realize that something is restraining your arms that an overwhelming tidal wave of memories wash over your body and send you back underwater.
given any loop (of any shape), are there four points that, when connected, form a square? (unsolved) or a rectangle? (solved and proved in this video)
topology is really cool!! and so is this video, it’s got really nice explanations and does so in a way that people with no topology knowledge can understand
PS topology was used by this year’s winners of the nobel prize in physics!!
Markiplier’s alter egos are surfacing. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? We still don’t know. Why are they coming back?
Mark promised that 2017 is the new him. He’ll bring back that ‘old him’- he needs to renew that passion once more, he needs to light it up till he rivals a bright star in the night.
Anti came back on Halloween. Halloween, as we know, is the time when the supernatural comes back and becomes alive because the barrier is weak. Was it their way to go through?
No. It’s not their way. They already exist, here. With us. With Mark and Sean. They are like dopplegangers, however as their shadows; their ‘shadows’ as their opposite selves. They don’t need any special gateway. Anti however used that way to bring himself to the limelight. Bask in it. Revel in it.
So, why didn’t Dark appear?
Why? Because simply, it’s not Dark’s style. It’s Anti’s. Anti is bombastic. Sporadic, he appears when you don’t expect him. You didn’t expect him to appear on Halloween.
Dark however, he’s quiet. He knows manipulation. He’s a master. He knows how to sweet talk. And when is it the best to sweet talk? Valentine’s Day. He knows the special infatuation fans have with him. He knows how to twist his words into something pleasant; something good.
And he is good.
If you choose unwisely, you end up within his control. If you don’t get the ‘right’ choice, you will suffer. But then it is revealed that you can reset the reality. You’re still safe.
Jack and Mark are freely talking about them now. Mark acknowledges Anti and Dark at the same time in his episode of Mono.exe. And now, Google’s back. Mark talks about Bim Trimmer in livestream.
But Google is no ‘shadow/dark’ version of Mark. And if you recall, Santa was out as well last December. So does that mean that they exist here on our plane of existence as well?
No. There’s someone at the gateway, a doorkeeper of the worlds. He who controls the gateways of the planes of existence. He who transcends the rules of physics- more powerful than Dark.And we all know who does it.
He’s the one that you encounter in the part of ‘A Date With Markiplier’ in the ‘real’ ending. He literally is the one that brings you back to reality. He shows up in the transition, explaining things and popping out of nowhere. He’s the reason why you’re repeating the date, getting a ‘game over’ style and a ‘try again’ sign when you end up badly. He’s why the loop exists.
He’s the master. He’s the man behind everything. He’s tactically making Mark’s alter egos show up slowly one-by-one to remind the people that they are still there.
Dark and Wilford, hand-in-hand. Mark’s most famous alter egos, the classics, the original alternate personalities. They’re back again to shock the world.
Maybe connected to this theory-theory
Wilford found out about the state of Mark. Who’s better to remind the guy who he started with than those guys who were beside him all time? Mark as the leader, the celebrity, the Youtuber; Wilford as the Interviewer, the pink-mustached man who is quite goofy in a particular way; and Dark, Mark’s horrifying alter ego, the one that showed up in his earlier videos. The other alternate egos turning back to help the guy rise from the slump.
Artist & Thief (an excerpt from my SCBWI keynote for those who weren't there)
I used to think that my ideal job was to write. To make up stories. To lie for a living. Now that I’m in it, though, now that I’m comfortable in my novelist skin, it doesn’t feel that way at all. I observe for a living. I steal for a living. I stylize for a living. I find things in the real world, I take them for my own, and then I hammer them into a story-shaped thing. Writer? I am a thief and an artist.
One of my loves is mythology and folklore, and one of the earliest folkloric traditions I got into was Celtic fairy lore. Probably I can blame my mother for this. We were Navy brats and moved about all over, and one of the ways she would distract us children on long coast-to-coast moving trips was pointing out the window and saying LOOK! THERE! DID YOU SEE THAT FAIRY? BEHIND THAT TREE? The reasonable response would have been: No, mother, we did not, because we are traveling at 65 miles per hour and that tree is a thing of our now-distant past. But my mother was very persuasive, so instead, we always craned our necks and tried to see the fairies in between the trees or dancing on the lakes or hiding in the fog in the hills, etcetera, etcetera.
Anyway, one of the traditions around fairies is that they live in grand underground worlds, ruled over by the powerful fairy queen. Stories talk about how humans descend to this underground world and are dazzled by the beauty and wonder they see. The most beautiful citizens, the most intricate of architecture, the most delicious of fruits hanging from enchanted trees. But they also talk about how the longer you are underground — the more canny you are — the more you begin to recognize your surroundings. Because the fairy queen, for all her power, can’t create anything from scratch. She can only observe beauty and wonder in the real world, then take it for herself and assemble it in different ways. She is a thief. An artistic thief, but a thief nonetheless.
Increasingly, I’ve realized that I am very rarely creating something entirely from scratch. Instead, I am a thief as well, stealing from everything I see, everything I do, everyone I meet. And then I’m an artist — choosing carefully how to stitch them back together.
For instance, I shall set the scene. A few years ago, I began bringing a sketchbook with me as I toured. I wanted to get better at sketching people in real time, and the only way to get better in just about anything is practice.
Here’s the annoying thing about people who are alive, though, something you, too, may have noticed: they move. They move even more if they get wise to the notion that you’re sketching them. So by this point, I had begun to choose my victims rather carefully. People reading books. People staring at signs. People dozing on their hands. People studying their lunches with distrust. In this case, I was on an airplane, traveling from a tour stop to a tour stop. Normally I didn’t sketch on planes, because all you can see are the backs of people’s heads, or your seatmate, who can definitely spot that you’re sketching them, and will definitely move around, even if he or she is distrustful of his or her lunch.
Also normally I write on airplanes. I very much enjoy writing on planes, but only as long as I am in the window seat with only one flank to protect. This is because of a flight when I was trapped in a middle seat and after I wrote a joke into my novel, the man beside me laughed. I asked him: why did you DO that? And he said SORRY, it was funny. And I told him: YOU HAVE RUINED MY LIFE. From then on, I only wrote in window seats.
On this particular day, I was in an aisle seat, so there would be no writing. The seat in the middle was empty. In my coveted window seat was a young man whom I hated for being in the coveted window seat. Once I got over my resentment that he had stolen my throne, however, I realized that he was an ideal victim for sketching, as he was sitting with his ball cap pulled over his face. He was so still that it was possible he was dead. PERFECT. Dead people rarely move! I would check him for a pulse after I was done.
So I sketched him with delight, and then, a half hour later, I heard a voice. “Is that me?” He had this real soft Southern accent — the sort I’d grown up with back in the Shenandoah Valley — and it was audible because he’d removed his hat from his face and because he was alive. I showed him the drawing. He was pleased. I told him that I couldn’t write because I wasn’t in the window seat, and it was a long plane ride, so he might as well tell me his life story. It wasn’t long enough for his entire life story, but he did tell me how his hand. I had noticed it while I was sketching: it was oddly shaped, and I’d drawn it oddly shaped. When he noticed that I noticed, he told me the tale of how he’d broken it. It turned out that, although he assured me he was a peaceful creature, he’d broken it on someone’s face. He’d been in a minor altercation defending his sister’s honor. As he was telling me this story — which may or may not have been true — I was listening to him with my mind on record. I was getting ready to steal him.
I used to steal the surface of a thing. I would have stolen that story of the barfight, for instance, and all the details around it, wholecloth. I would have recorded it as truthfully as I could imagine and I would’ve been proud of myself for accurately transcribing the human experience. But that’s bad thievery. Shallow thievery. Copying, not artistry.
Now I know that when I’m stealing someone, it’s not their details I need. It’s their soul. I’ve learned to solve for x. To simplify to the essence. It’s not about the punch. It’s about why he threw that punch. No, it’s about why he threw that punch then and never any other time. It’s about how he’s telling me the story. How he includes his sister’s honor in this story of a single, crippling punch, because her honor adds a weight that the mere velocity of the swing does not. He can’t own that punch — that single punch — even to me, a stranger on a plane, without including the backstory of its purpose. It’s about how he wants me to know that he’s not bragging about a casual barroom brawl, this hand — this broken hand — he broke his hand for a reason.
Here’s the thing: he could’ve been lying to me. His story could be completely fabricated, and then, if I stole that story, I’d be telling a lie of a lie. A copy of a copy, each version a bit less like reality. That would be bad stealing on my part.
But here is solving for x, simplifying for the truth, stealing the essence. Here was the truth, sitting beside me, a confession in the knit of his eyebrows and that soft Southern accent. Here was a boy who had lost his temper once, much to his shame, and here was a boy who had had to look at that moment every day since it had happened. Everything else was details. Just noise. But THAT was the soul: and that’s what I stole.
That boy became Adam Parrish from the Raven Cycle.
A boy who made a mistake and has to live with it every day. A boy who carries physical evidence of a moment’s anger.
Skincare tips + some myth busting (acne edition) -pt1.
These are not your usual “drink water, moisturize, get plenty of sleep” shit. These are real stuff that worked for me, and they could work for you too. Keep in mind that everyone is different tho. Ur skin might not react as well as mine did.
1. It does not matter which cleanser you use
As long as it doesn’t irritate you and isn’t overly drying, it ok. Don’t bother investing in cleansers with active substances such as benzoyl peroxide or glycolic/salicylic acid, cleanesers simply do not sit on your skin for long enough for those to work. Save that money.
2. You don’t really have to change your pillowcase everyday, ya kno.
Acne bacteria are anaerobic. They won’t survive on your pillowcase anyway. Same goes for your pijamas, bra etc. if you have back acne.
3. Speaking of back acne, wear cotton and try not to carry too heavy rucksacks.
And for the love of god, don’t wear synthetic clothes AND carry heavy luggage at the same time. Will irritate you af. Synthetics do not absorb sweat so it just accumulates on your skin the whole day. Icky.
But not the mechanical kind. Damages skin. Get yourself a good enzyme or acid peel, or a cream that contains them. Makes your skin so soft and nice and really helps with getting rid of blackheads and preventing blocked pores. As a bonus, gets rid of flaky skin, if you have it. There are many kinds of acids used for chemical exfoliation, mainly categorized as alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids. They say alphas are gentler, and therefore better for sensitive skin, but also less effective for acne. I’ve tried and liked both, since I don’t have sensitive skin. Both worked for me. Do some research on this to find the best acid to use on your skin. Very important: exfoliate at night and use sunscreens!!! Exfoliating substances make your skin more sensitive to sunlight!
4. Invest in a chemical peel.
Get it performed by a dermatologist. For me, doing it once a month for three or four months saved my skin FOREVER.
5. Ditch lemon on your face…
…and apple cider vinegar. And baking soda. And sugar scrubs. And olive oil. The first two are too acidic. Baking soda is too basic. Sugar scrubs are too abrasive. Olive oil’s chemical composture isn’t suitable for acne prone skin (too much oleic acid. Ur oily skin already has enough of it. Search for oils high in linoleic acid if you want to use oils as moisturizers). Raw honey is good, apparently. Cinnamon and turmeric too. Stay vary with turmeric because according to some studies it makes skin more sensitive to sunlight.
6. You don’t really have to use toner. Invest in some hyaluronic acid serum if you want a middle step between cleansing and moisturizing.
Hyaluronic acid is an amazing humectant, and makes skin sooo well hydrated. I prefer to first apply hyaluronic to hydrate and then seal that water in with some oil-based moisturizer. That + regular exfoliation = soft skin!!!!
I used Differin on my back and it cleared me up sooo well and also got rid of my hyperkeratosis pilaris. I had quite bad bacne, and after three months they are pretty much gone. Unfortunately I’m still waiting for post-inflammatory erithema (red marks) to fade buuuut hey, I have no more acne! You should also probably go to your dermatologists to get more information on which retionid you need. Don'tforget to wear sunscreen while you’re on it. Also: you don’t have to exfoliate while on retinoid. You can, if your skin is not sensitive, but it’s not particularly necessery.
8. Topical antioxidants
Literally the most important and least known thing on this list. Lemme get a bit scienc-y.
All acne begin their journey as blocked pores. Blocked pores are those white, bumpy, skin-colored little shits below the skin surface. The most important thing you can do to prevent your acne is to prevent blocked pores. Pores are blocked as a result of sebum oxidation and consequent formation of squalene peroxide, the most comedogenic substance on earth. Bam. You have clogged pore, the perfect breeding ground for acne bacteria, which then triggers inflammatory response by your body and you get a red zit.
But this red zit would’ve never happened if your sebum never oxidized. Substances that prevent oxidation are - you guess it - antioxidants. So get yourself a good product with vitamin c, vitamin e, niacin(b3), or green tea (green tea is especially good, because it also reduces sebum output. It’s not enough to just place teabag on your skin, it wil just sit on your skin and won’t penetrate. Buy a cream). This is where you splurge, ladies. Antioxidants are also good as an anti-aging agent and serve as a protection from envirotmental pollution. Pays to invest in them.
Sudocrem + tea tree oil = spot treatment!!!
Ok so this is it for now. I hope some of you will find this advice useful. I wanted to include diet/supplement tips in this post too but since this text turned out to be hella long I decided to leave it for another time. Stay happy pals!
People with their moon in Aries are very passionate, funny, and endearing people. Their Aries moon shines through regardless of their other placements. They are people who love to get things done and try new things. They find it difficult to keep their emotions down and it is important for them to be able to express themselves. Boredom is the bane of their existence. They are impatient. Despite their love for trying new things, they get bored easily and often end up not finishing things they've started. They are quick to jump the gun and often ends up saying things they regret. Their mood changes can be intense but are usually short lived. They are the kind of people that will be fuming over something and then laughing over something else a few minutes later. It is very easy to tell when someone with an Aries moon is going through a rough patch because their 'spark' will be very dull and they might be lethargic, unmotivated, and dull. Lunar Aries can be immature, but it is almost always unintentional. These people are hardly malicious and are more likely to hurt someone on accident due to impulsivity and being defensive as opposed to it being thought out and intentional.
Taurus moon people are thoughtful and observant. They are independent people who can be stubborn and set in their own ways and often prefer to work alone. They are loyal to those they love and care very deeply but sometimes have a hard time showing it. Despite that, they are usually very warm people who are easy to open up to. Taurus moon natives might have a hard time processing or showing emotion and might develop a habit of bottling their emotions up. These people like to go through life with lots of security and are usually planners and dislike being taken off guard. Safety and security are core values for them and they are not the type of people to go into things blindly. Taurus moon's can be lazy, but do not like procrastinating at all. Their laziness is usually only an issue when something is not important to them. They take things they value very seriously. Taurus moon often indicates possessiveness and the fear of abandonment and loss. However, people with this placement are very self sacrificing to those they love. They do not like to give up on anything, including relationships.
People with this placement have quick minds that are always buzzing with ideas. This is a good quality because they are very witty and intelligent and are good at 'thinking outside the box' but can also result in overthinking. Lunar Gemini's are very playful and silly but are also very capable of getting things done. They enjoy arguing and usually don't take things too personally unless their core values or intelligence is insulted. They are usually very energetic and are fun to be around and carry a positive energy. People with this placement can be very moody and fickle. They have a hard time making up their minds and despite being analytical, they don't always know what is best for themselves. Sometimes these people have a tough time with their sense of self and will adopt other people's personality traits or try to change themselves. It often stems from wanting to be understood, which is a major challenge for moon in Gemini. They are hilarious and are great at making people feel comfortable.
Lunar Cancers are deeply intuitive and empathetic. They are excellent at reading people and can see through lies and facades very easily, but they often idealize people and try to ignore their intuition because they want to see the best in people. People with this placement feel things very deeply yet try to keep their emotions to themselves. They can appear guarded but in reality they fear being hurt or taken advantage of. Sensitivity is a very strong Cancer moon quality. They are very perceptive of their environment and sentimental. They tend to dwell on the past and have a hard time getting over anything that was important to them. Change is extremely difficult for them, especially any change that takes them away from familiarity and security. Lunar Cancers love very hard and it's very hard for them to get over people. They are very creative, especially when it comes to things that connect to their values and emotions. They can be very moody and despite being very understanding of other people's emotions, they can find it hard to understand their own. They are prone to feeling guilty for being emotional and sometimes don't value themselves as much as they value others. These people can be hard to get to know but when you do, they are some of the most reliable and caring people.
Lunar Leo's are very charming and inviting people. People with this placement often aren't as outgoing as people with their sun in Leo, but are the kind of people who can come off quiet or aloof but are extremely open and wild around people they're comfortable around. These people have strong beliefs and feelings and aren't afraid to tell people off. They find it very difficult to brush their morals or values aside. They are the kinds of people who love to talk about what they're passionate about. Sharing their passions with the world is important to them. People often say Leo moon's are selfish, but in reality this is often a defense mechanism. They protect their pride and even though they are open and proud people, they hate to show weakness. When someone with their moon in Leo loves you, they will show you. These people are often bad with words, especially if it shows vulnerability, and prefer to show their feelings in action. They can be quite dramatic with their emotions but they're often dramatic for comedic effect, but sometimes people can't tell they're kidding. Leo moon's are prone to depression or negative thinking which is unlike their usually optimistic selves when they are not receiving attention or validation. It's very important to them that they feel appreciated and cared for.
People with moon in Virgo are very logical and observant people and are great at investigating and figuring things out. Virgo moons are witty and don't miss a beat. They take things like work and school very seriously and are critical, but most of the criticism they apply to themselves. Even though people with this placement can come off stoic, they are extremely sensitive, especially when it comes to receiving criticism. They care a lot about what people in positions of authority and people they love think and take what they say to heart. Virgo moons are very organized and have a hard time functioning without a schedule or agenda. Their organization method might not make sense to some people, but it makes sense to them. These people often nag and try to control others but it's because they have an image in mind of how things should be. It's a huge sign of trust for a Virgo moon to let someone else take the reigns. They appreciate the little things in life and aren't the kinds of people who want a ton of possessions or an extravagant lifestyle. Virgo moons often fall into depression if they don't feel useful or that they are reaching their full potential. Same goes for when they are not being recognized for their efforts. They can feel the need to prove themselves even when others would not deem it necessary at all. These people are extremely motivated and devoted to what they value.
Lunar Libra's are kindhearted and care a lot about the way they are perceived. They are usually pleasant and easy to work with. They can come off confident and charming, but a lot of the time they are insecure in who they are and want to be liked. Libra moons are often the type who feel the need to be in a relationship all of the time. They are witty and intelligent and love to learn and to teach. Even if it isn't their favorite thing, they work well in groups. They can be overly dependent on others and can get attached to specific people or the idea of always having someone to rely on. They hate to feel lonely and don't want others to feel that way either. A problem they run into is that they have a hard time setting boundaries and saying no. They feel guilty for rejecting others or even just putting themselves first. Libra moons hate conflict and often won't say anything when they feel wronged because they don't want to start anything. Their fear of being disliked can cause them to change their personality or pretend to be someone they're not. They are often seen as being very flirty, but in reality, it's often them just being kind and trying to make the other person smile. They are great people to come to for advice. They appreciate beautiful things and generally have a positive outlook and try to see the best in people and the world. They are very creative but can be scared or embarrassed about showing their creations to the world.
Scorpio moon is a very intense placement. These people don't often seem emotional on the surface, but feel things very deeply. They are extremely passionate individuals. Their intuition is very strong and people with this placement often rely on their gut instinct more than anything else. They like to be in love but do not mindlessly enter relationships at all. In fact, it can take them a very long time to get into one because they fear rejection and being hurt. They are extremely loyal to who they love and feel very depressed when their feelings aren't reciprocated as deeply as theirs. They can have issues with jealousy and can seem suffocating. They are terrified of betrayal and don't usually trust others. They are very trustworthy themselves, though. They know how to keep secrets. These people need their own space. Even if the individual might not be introverted, they cannot be around others all of the time. They value personal space and can feel disturbed when that space is breached. Scorpio moons are often interested in things that people would consider dark or weird. They like learning about mysteries, the occult, psychology, and other things that might not be tangible to everyone. They live life in an all or nothing fashion and often avoid or simply cannot do things in moderation. Scorpio moon's are very dedicated and ambitious people who will stop at nothing when they want something.
Sagittarius moons are people who are adventurous and freedom seeking. They usually have a great sense of humor and a go with the flow attitude. They dislike routine and get bored easily. Moon in Sagittarius natives avoid being caged in at all costs. It's not that they're afraid of commitment, rather they just don't like being tied down. They love to travel and the idea of staying in one place their whole life seems like a waste to them. They are the kinds of people who want to try everything and can be very reckless. Their recklessness doesn't stop there- they can be reckless with other people's emotions unintentionally. Sagittarius moons are typically very good natured and mean no harm, but they don't always take other people into consideration. They aren't the most perceptive to other people's feelings which can result in the lunar Sagittarius hurting others. Sagittarius moon's are often outgoing but they are independent people. They like to do things their own way and are usually pretty aware they're not the most reliable people. Sagittarius moon's are fun friends and are good at cheering people up. Despite being easygoing people, they are easily irritated. They can be blunt, too. These people don't go out looking for conflict but they aren't afraid to tell people like it is. Their direct honesty isn't always a bad thing, though. They are good at reassuring people and their opinions are often held in high regard by others. Sagittarius moons are easily let down because they have a tendency to set high expectations and are idealists. They love challenges and can be competitive but not usually in an unhealthy way, it's usually fun for them and motivates them.
People with moon in Capricorn are very reliable and diligent. They are hard workers who are perfectionists. They thrive off of structure and hate to feel useless, which they often do when they aren't doing anything they deem productive. This is a tough position for the moon to be in. Lunar Capricorns are extremely hard on themselves and are overly self critical. They try to always seem like they have it together. These people often have a fake it til you make it attitude and are great at faking confidence. It's also difficult for them to be vulnerable or to open up in general. They unintentionally bottle their emotions up. They are good at analyzing in general, but have a hard time self reflecting. They try to ignore their feelings and have a hard time seeing their positive qualities. Capricorn moons rely on feeling useful and that they have a purpose. They can seem conceited and often bring up their accomplishments, but they don't brag to rub it in others faces, they bring that stuff up because they view their accomplishments as their worth, so they want others to see they are worthy and have a purpose in life. Capricorn moons need security and to feel loved but often do not register that and can try to push that down or feel like they aren't worthy of it. Once they find someone they trust and love, they are amazing partners who are loyal, observant, and caring. It's obvious when a Capricorn moon trusts you because they will talk about their fears and feelings. Lunar Capricorns often need a cause or something to fight for. They want to use their skills for something that will make a difference. Finding that is often a huge breakthrough for these people and their confidence can improve through this.
Lunar Aquarius are very intriguing and passionate people. They might not be as emotional as others, but what they lack for in surface emotions they make up for in their passions. They are usually very progressive and care about the overall good of humanity. They are also usually very interested in people as a whole. They can be very outgoing but similar to Sagittarius moons, they are independent. They dance to the beat of their own drum and don't like to follow the crowd. People with moon in Aquarius hate being copied and want to be original and distinct individuals. They tend to be interested in things that aren't popular, and they don't mind that, though they can be disappointed because they love talking about those things. Aquarius moons usually have an ideal image of who they want to be in their head. This placement usually indicates being pretty even in thinking with your head and heart. Despite this, Aquarius moons really don't like to be seen as emotional. Their decisions are usually made after a lot of thinking about the possible outcomes. They are spontaneous, but not very impulsive. There is a natural inclination for them to think they are superior to others, mostly people who are desperate to fit in. Aquarius moons like to have a wide circle of friends but only a select few close friends. They would not thrive in a work environment that bored them and/or that isn't involving something they're passionate about. Aquarius moons strive to make a difference in the world.
