tending to the spirit

o shit waddup the character designs are here ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I’ll be posting the actual tattoo designs later on. Here’s just the general idea. 

So, as promised, more on my Sun/Moon Spirit AU!

  • Adrien wears a lot of clothes due to him being the sun spirit, he is constantly exposed to the heat.
  • And onto that, another reason he wears a lot of clothes aka the giant robe is because he has a lot of scars and all sorts from battles, the heat and just general angsty shit (more to come on this next time)
  • I’ll give you this though; because Mari has rejected him for…decades, sometimes he gets lonely which is why out of the two, he is more likely to go to his human version so he can to interact with people.
  • But, their human forms have restrictions. 
  • To transform into their human versions, they have to take off their respective earrings. 
  • They have a limited amount of time in their human versions, as the time passes, their tattoos begin to fade and they cannot, at all costs, have their tattoos fully faded and gone. 
  • If the tattoos fully fade, they become mortals, and as much as Adrien does want to become a mortal, the balance of basically everything in the universe goes to the shits and basically we might die.
  • Due to his excessive use of his human version, he is often scolded by gods. Adrien has never gotten his tattoo fully faded but he’s had some very close calls. 
  • Mari has every constellation on her back as tattoos and as time passes for her in her human form, the constellations disappear one by one. 
  • Both Adrien and Mari are saddened about their losing connection to humans. They were once actively interactive with the people way back then but during the heavy times of industrialisation and of course, environmental issues, sometimes it’s hard for both to reach out. And this has definitely affected both physically…
  • Mari fell in love with Human Adrien in the time of the French Revolution when he fought as a soldier. 
  • In their spirit forms, only animals and chosen humans can sense Adrien and Mari.
  • Birds love Adrien and can sense him more strongly than any other animals and tend to follow him around in his spirit form. 
  • Spirit Adrien has seen Human Mari….more to come on this later. 
  • I’m not going to reveal all of this yet but here’s the thing; the spirits don’t just watch over the people for decades without doing anything…
  • And Mari and Adrien are definitely not the only spirits around. 
  • That’s it for now but yeah….def some more soon ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
The Signs as Female Shakespeare Characters

Aries: Katherine Minola (The Taming of the Shrew)

“If I be waspish, best beware my sting”

Taurus: Viola (Twelfth Night)

“Make me a willow cabin at your gate and call upon my soul within the house,
write loyal cantons of contemnèd love, and sing them loud even in the dead of night”

Gemini: Cleopatra (Antony & Cleopatra)

“Sir, you and I have loved, but there’s not it; That you know well. Something it is I would— O, my oblivion is a very Antony, and I am all forgotten”

Cancer: Cordelia (King Lear)

“I am sure my love’s more ponderous than my tongue”

Leo: Titania (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)

These are the forgeries of jealousy; And never, since the middle summer’s spring, met we on hill, in dale, forest, or mead, by paved fountain, or by rushy brook, or in the beached margent of the sea, to dance our ringlets to the whistling wind”

Virgo: Juliet Capulet (Romeo & Juliet)

“Although I joy in thee, I have no joy of this contract tonight. It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden, too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say ‘It lightens.’“ 

Libra: Portia (The Merchant of Venice)

“You see me, Lord Bassanio, where I stand, such as I am: though for myself alone I would not be ambitious in my wish, to wish myself much better; yet, for you I would be trebled twenty times myself; A thousand times more fair, ten thousand times more rich”

Scorpio: Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing)

“But manhood is melted into curtsies, valor into compliment, and men are only turned into tongue, and trim ones, too. He is now as valiant as Hercules that only tells a lie and swears it. I cannot be a man with wishing; therefore I will die a woman with grieving”

Sagittarius: Miranda (The Tempest

“O, brave new world, that has such people in ‘t!”

Capricorn: Lady Macbeth (Macbeth)

“The raven himself is hoarse that croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan under my battlements. Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe topful of direst cruelty!”

Aquarius: Rosalind (As You Like It)

“It is not the fashion to see the lady the epilogue; but it is no more unhandsome than to see the lord the prologue. If it be true that good wine needs no bush, 'tis true that a good play needs no epilogue; yet to good wine they do use good bushes, and good plays prove the better by the help of good epilogues”

Pisces: Ophelia (Hamlet)

“There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance; pray, love, remember; and there is pansies, that’s for thoughts…There’s fennel for you, and columbines; there’s rue for you, and here’s some for me; we may call it herb of grace o’ Sundays. O, you must wear your rue with a difference”

Get to Know Your Deck Spread

Here’s a lovely spread for all of you out there who are new to tarot, recently received a new deck, struggle with bonding with your deck(s) and/or are having issues getting clear or understanding readings. Sometimes decks have personalities to them, they have their own likes, dislikes, alignments and even preferred ‘work’ to go into. They also often require bonding to get the most accurate smooth readings. I have explained before the differences in my decks and what they like to answer, and I know of others who struggle bonding or understanding who their decks are. This spread should be of help!

1. How is your deck feeling today? Are they in a good mood ready to work? Or are they just having an off bad day? I have found decks, like people, can have moody bad days. These days their readings may be harsher than usual or even not even slightly logical. Its good to see what mood your deck is in before using it for readings, especially readings for others (and especially if they are paying for them). This may also affect the questions they will wish to answer.

2. What element does your deck align with? All decks are different and some may align themselves with specific elements. Is your deck fire, water, earth, air, spirit or a combination of them? This may affect the manner which they read. Air decks may be more interested in giving creative advice and focus on individuality, free-spirited natures, the arts, and even love. Water decks tend to focus on emotions and seeking gentle fixes. Fire decks tend to be the most assertive, they are competitive, encouraging, brave, passionate but also tend to support the idea of feuds. Fire decks, also from my experience, tend to be very blunt about things. Earth aligned decks tend to be a bit calmer, they focus on bonds with people such as family and friendships. They also focus on careers, prosperity and money matters. Spirit decks, tend to like to do more of the ‘divine’. They focus on self-enlightenment, self discovery and communicating with supernatural forces, guides, and deities.

3. What Questions does your deck enjoy answering? Does your deck enjoy answering questions about love? Friends and family? Do they enjoy giving personal advice? Do they like money matters and career focuses. This could determine what questions they may be the most accurate and ones they will give the best advice on.

4. What Questions does your deck least like to answer? These are the questions they may not have the most accurate advice on. Such as my Rider deck greatly dislikes romance questions so I never use him for them because he will always just advice break-ups no matter the situation.

5. What is your deck’s current feelings towards you? Does your deck feel close to you? Is it a strong professional business bond? Or is it more like a friendship? Do they feel distant from you? Like you ignore them? Do they not understand you or feel like you are a stranger? Do you intimidate them?

6. How can you improve your relationship? How does your deck feel like you two can do to help build your relationship? Practice more or perhaps make spreads.

7. A Negative trait. Pretty self explanatory, this is a negative quality about your deck that it feels you have a right to know about. Take note that this is a negative trait in the mind and views of your deck, its something it feels is negative.

8. A Positive trait. Again, pretty self explanatory, this is a trait that your deck feels is a positive trait it has. Again, this is a trait seen as positive in its mind.

The Best Girlfriends of the Zodiac, Ranked Worst to Best
12. Scorpio

She comes in last. Beware of the Scorpio woman out of all the signs. She is the one you should be the most frightened of. You have to be prepared for the honesty of a Scorpio girlfriend. She will be very passionate, and she will show you that she loves you in ways you’ve never experienced before. But the moment that you make a big mistake, expect that she is going to be ruthless in bringing you down. When you are on her good side, she is the best you can get. Just remember that!

11. Virgo

The Virgo girlfriend may be critical about the relationship that you have with her. Insecurity can play a big role. Even though you try to reassure her your love, this won’t be sufficient at times.  She is usually the most insecure of the people that you meet, and she gets jealous easily. But you think that she is perfect in every way or at least, perfect for you.

10. Aries

A relationship with an Aries girl is in one word ‘intense’. Because she feels everything to the core. She frequently rushes into things so you may get intimidated in the beginning especially if you think you are still not ready for a new relationship.  Though, if she senses the smell of being unwanted she’ll be already out the door. If she included you in her world, she will do everything in her power to have fun and make your day a better one.

9. Taurus

Taurus women are very fond of their freedom. That is why relationships in the beginning can go very slow. She has to know you are worthy of her love. If you won her over she will be extremely loyal. She is your mother, your cook and your lover all at once. Don’t mess this up, you will not get a second chance.

8. Cancer

If you would like to be pampered and cared for, you need a Cancerian girlfriend. You can expect that she will be wearing her heart on her sleeve all the time. You know exactly how she is feeling. You do not want to upset her, but she tends to become upset easily over the smallest things. She is not very trusting, and it will take a long time for you to get her trust but just seconds to break it. She cares for you, but at times, she does not want to show it though it is evident. Her contradicting actions may seem confusing for you, but the moment that you get her, she will do her best not to break your heart.

7. Leo

If you are big on romance, Leo is your sign to date. Magical and enchanting romantic affairs the kinds of relationships you thought only exist in the movies. Not easy to uphold but this is everything she wants and she will fight you for it. Leo women like a ‘project’ as a partner or someone that need to be ‘saved’.

6. Aquarius

The perfect average girlfriend. She’s right there in the middle. She is very loyal and committed when it comes to relationships but also has a very eccentric aspect to her personality. She is very independent. She may also be considered weird because people do not understand her thoughts and actions. The moment that you get to know her better, you will begin to realize what she is trying to prove. And you will see how wonderful she is.

5. Gemini

A Gemini woman is a healthy mix of positives and negatives. You will have your fair share of fun and exciting times, but you will also go through your fair share of struggles. Most of the time, a Gemini woman is fun, adventurous, and easygoing. However, they also have a dark side about them that they reveal every once in a while.

4. Libra

You almost can never go wrong with dating a Libra girl. She is known to be one of the most genuinely kind people out of all the Zodiac signs. They tend to always portray a positive spirit and they always want the people around them to be happy. However, you have to be very careful with your words around a Libra woman. She has the tendency to get hurt fairly easily. She does not like having conflicts with the one she loves so even if she senses that something is wrong or even if you did something that she did not like, she would not say anything about it. If you are a jealous type you must know, a Libra woman tends to be very charismatic and social. She will be surrounded with quite some people.

3. Capricorn

A Capricorn woman is someone who will never come up short when it comes to effort. She is always going to give her 100% dedication and commitment to any relationship. Although she can be difficult to deal with because of her perfectionist ways, you will always end up thankful for having her in your life. You know that your life would be just way worse without her in it.

2. Pisces

While typically, a Pisces girl is always shy at first, she is most definitely going to be worth all the patience and effort in the world. She is incredibly trustworthy and you can always rely on her to take care of your heart. She is very skilled at figuring out how you’re feeling at any particular moment. She is also very sensitive and careful with both her words and actions.

1. Sagittarius

She is always guarded but the moment that you can conquer her heart, you will be one of the few special people in her life. If you manage to land a Sagittarius girl, she is on an endless pursuit to always push you to become the best version of yourself. She is a very selfless and generous human being who always places the needs of others above her own.
They are always in the business of trying to make the people around them better. And that is why she has been declared as the best girlfriend.

hear me out

mob (still an esper in this au) goes on crazy adventures with his fake-psychic teacher (who’s actually just a genius scientist) and sometimes with his brother ritsu (also still an esper) 

in general, spirits tend to flock around mob, but i sort of ran away with the idea of the spirits of mob’s alternate selves and the ghosts of other of his friends following him around… 

imagine a citadel of reigens tho 

differentiating reality from imagination

we all have moments where we wonder whether we’re talking to ourselves or to an actual spirit, moments where we second-guess ourselves. here’s a method i’ve been using to separate the two:

in the middle of the conversation, try to make the spirit you’re talking to say/do something absolutely ridiculous that you know they won’t do using only your thoughts. if they do as you think immediately, then it’s imagination. if you continue your conversation with them and/or they reprimand you, then it’s real.

other signs i’ve noticed when a spirit is real:

  • they say things you don’t expect
  • you get impressions of feelings and thoughts aside from words
  • they teach you things you don’t know
  • you feel a distinct presence when talking to them
  • you might get tired if you talk to them for quite some time (while imaginations don’t tend to suck your energy)
Natal Retrograde Planets

*The Sun and Moon do not go Retrograde

 **Sometimes other aspects in the chart balance retrogrades and make them less apparent.

Mercury in Retrograde: Turns the mind, communication, and learning style inward. Thought process is less objective and more subjective/intuitive. Very quirky individuals- who may struggle learning in traditional methods. May have a knack at non-verbal communicative methods such as art, music, dance, etc.

Venus in Retrograde: Turns relationships and emotions into a much deeper experience. Love is a very deep thing for these individuals. May struggle with lack of self-love and insecurities.

Mars in Retrograde: Passions and defensive mechanisms become internalized. These individuals are quiet warriors who tend to dislike confrontation or competition. May have issues standing up for themselves.  

Jupiter in Retrograde: Ideas and self-expansion are internalized. These individuals tend to have a very unique set of ideals/spirituality that is untouched by society’s perceptions.

Saturn in Retrograde: Turns fears internally. May be a strong fear of not being good enough. Tend to be incredibly disciplined individuals. There may be struggle with anxiety. These individuals have natural wisdom.

Uranus in Retrograde: Creates a free spirit that tends to be unaware of its own individuality. May have a strong desire to pursue personal growth and development.

Neptune in Retrograde: May feel a lack of spiritual depth in their life. These individuals are on search to unveil life’s mysteries. They have incredibly intuition, but may be detached from it.

Pluto in Retrograde: Turns transformational energy and personal growth inward. One may be inspired long before they are able to express it to the outward world. Very deeply connected to their subconscious

A Starting Path to Spirit Work (but abbreviated)

(Apologies, it’s rather late as I’m writing on this and I have no wifi and I’ve gone past my data limit. I won’t be able to link large resources and such at this moment, and the format could definitely be better. And I could go much more indepth but for the current moment this is what I have on tumblr mobile.)

PROTECTION

Okay, this is the most common and I understand repetitive lesson. Protect yourself! Protect your home and your spirit friends! Protect and ward!

There are physical wards where the a physical spell or object is set up as the ward. Like maybe you have a crystal grid that you set up to protect your home. That would be an example of physical protection!

There are astral wards where you simply set them up in the astral (the other plane where spirits generally reside or originate from, not everyone but trying to make a general point on clarifying the difference the physical plane from the astral plane). Like you can build a giant water bubble to protect and enclose yourself!

There are great recipes for wards and protection spells that can work for you, but you don’t need to follow anyone’s recipe to make a ward. You can make one a multitude of ways. Sure, yours doesn’t follow a $25 ingredient list, but that doesn’t make it inherently any less valuable or effective! If you don’t care and make it, it’ll probably be less effective than one of strong intent, of course.

Personally I rely on astral wards more than physical wards, but that’s a personal preference. Wards I make myself are also more efficient than the ones I try to copy from others by directions but personal differences. When I say I made them, I thought about the concept of spicy peppers and I designed three wards off that alone, so intent and direction is what you really need to make wards.

If you prefer following someone else’s recipe to help, there is absolutely no harm in that! Go for it! But don’t feel like you can and have to rely only on the recipes you find on tumblr!

Note: Even if you do not have a companion, you still need wards. I would most definitely recommend it. Even if you have no companion to protect, you should still ward and protect yourself and your space!

Protect yourself and your home. Remember to take care of yourself.

You can set up personal wards that protect the person or being you set them up around like a personal bodyguard or protection. Or you can set it up for an object, place or setting. Like for your space! And you should protect yourself. I’m nagging you for your own safety.

Protect yourself from malicious beings who straight up just wanna fight you, others who might sneak in and just leech off, or those who might decieve you to get in and then harm you. Not every spirit has malicious intent or purpose, and most of them haven’t in my experience, but you should be safe and protect yourself the best you can from those occasions where bad news is knocking on your door.

When you have companions or spirit family, you’ll have more reasons to practice warding and have more wards, but that should not stop you from learning warding and being well protected yourself before then!

You can have wards that serve to protect you from attacks, and others to keep out liars. But you determine your wards, not me.

The thing is, the more the merrier, and the more variety the better! Cover all your bases. Maybe a water ward might keep out more fire-based spirits but water spirits might have an immunity. Or if you had 10+ wards with the same weakness and a malicious spirit finds out how to get past one, they get past all of them since they have the key for the same 10 doors.

You should regularly keep them running, and also do a bigger maintenance. But remember than constant smaller checkups are important too. Do small checkups often, and a big checkup regularly. I do small checkups daily, and weekly big maintenance because it’s important and better safe than well, not safe.

ENERGY WORK

I may have been too long-winded in the protection section and this section is gonna be lacking in comparison but it’s still needed.

You should have a basis in energy work. Learn how to sense energy, like presences, be able to read them, maybe not in a “I can give you a 5 page summary about this person about their energy” but I can tell this spirit has malicious or unsafe intent towards me so I should step away and turn them away. And telling them apart.

Like a spirit comes home, and you should practice how to tell the difference between Sam the kitten spirit and Feraligator the chihuahua spirit. Although you don’t need to be a master of energy work to start in spirit work, but you should have basics or a solid starting ground.

You can completely struggle with this, while going into spirit work but be willing to keep trying. It’s important and a helpful fundamental and can lead into spirit work, but you can definitely go into spirit work without being an expert energy worker or an energy healer.

COMMUNICATION

Without a doubt, you’re gonna want to have a conversation or communicate with spirits in spirit work.

I’m gonna be honest, you will not have 100% clarity when you begin. Minus a few rare exceptions of people. But ignoring those exceptions and miracles, be prepared for the actuality of communication.

You’ll start out with fragmented conversation. You’ll depend and start with divination, like pendulums, dice, and tarot cards to talk.

The start of the road begins with asking the spirits yes or no questions, or whatever maybe the pendulum board or your tools are limited to. Or you’ll use tarot, which is less yes/no but it’s still not a whole conversation like you would expect between two people. But you’ll have to build up and grow from there. You’ll practice and keep going.

Beyond your tools, the next tier to practice is telepathy and astral hearing.

I don’t think they are exactly the same, but you may disagree. I understand and respect that. Telepathy is direct communication through your minds with thoughts (this is off the top of the mind and I am typing this in one sitting. I will check and correct myself, and edit it if I am wrong, don’t worry).

Some spirits only communicate with scattered words, images and emotions. That just may be their preference and method of communication in telepathy, regardless of how well you can hear them.

Others may be able to talk in complete conversations like you’d expect from another human. But they may simplify what they’re saying to you so that you understand, or cooperate other ways because they understand you can’t catch everything they say.

For me, I think astral hearing is different where they speak in the astral out loud and everyone can hear it. But if your hearing is bad, you might not catch it, and that way, I don’t consider it the same as telepathy where they would just send their thoughts straight to your mind. You can improve your astral senses with effort, trying, and exercise.

Either way, you will practice and grow. Keep going, I believe in you.

Even when you get to that point where you can regularly hear astral conversations and use telepathy, you should still remember to keep your tools. They’ll help you double check yourself, and get you through lulls where it’ll get even harder so your senses will be limited.

INTERACTION WITH SPIRITS

There are two ways you can find and meet new spirits or strangers. Either you can meet your local spirits or go out into the astral but that’s not a beginner concept. However if you do wanna hear about that more, I’ll discuss that by request.

Okay, let’s talk about local spirits. Meeting and communicating with local spirits is the best way to practice before a committment like companionship or running into the astral blindly.

Nature spirits tend to be much kinder and patient, especially considering you’ll take time to practice and learn. The easiest spirits to bear with you for practice are rock/crystal spirits and your own garden and plant spirits.

Although there are definitely a few that aren’t friendly at all, it’s safer than running into the astral. And as far as I know, most people can go outside much more easily and already know how, over learning from scratch how to astral project and travel and being prepared for everything it has to offer (dangers and otherwise).

Note: You do not need to know how to astral travel or project to work with spirits, and you can hang out with spirits even if you can’t travel all the way to their apartment in the astral. You can chill and watch Netflix in your room together even if you can’t travel.

EVEN AFTER YOU GROW

You’re gonna keep warding and learning protection spells. When I became a mod, I learned that I had to upgrade and add MORE. You’ll need them, you’ll want them, and you’ll appreciate them. Even the failures will become a start to building better and more efficient wards. So keep going. We all nag about protection, but we’re absolutely serious.

You’re gonna keep learning and you’ll have a different path from others. You will hit roadblocks and communication will get harder some days, whether it’s from a lull, or low spoons or anything.

Take a step sideways, yeah, but that’s movement. And it won’t stop you from progress. The worst thing is to not practice honestly and be apathetic.

(It’s honestly quite late here, I’m physically tired and a little sick, so sorry if anything got messy or confusing. If you have anything you want me to talk on, clarify or discuss further, shoot us an ask.)

Disclaimer: I haven’t stopped learning, so there’s much more you can read on, and more others can offer you on the subject, so never be afraid to ask others for help and advice too. And terms may slightly differ from being to being, so there’s also that to account for, and other people may have different answers for you too! So keep on adventuring and gathering knowledge.

Venus signs as men I’ve met. 👨🏻‍🍳


Venus in Aries: pretty calm! Extremely self aware and confident in themselves and their actions-very honest and upfront and pretty direct with what they do not a lot of beat around the bush-that being said they’re complex and not very easy to read on an emotional level. They have nice hair! And they can have piercing eyes.


Venus in Taurus: slow moving and very smooth. They no what to say and aren’t big on talking for the sake of it. They’re fairly curious and love intimacy be it with friends or lovers! They like that aspect of closeness. They’re not confrontational and like to avoid overly emotional situations in the beginning but once things get serious they’re very compassionate and sweet. Usually have nice lips and soft necks. Ohhhh and they tend to be slow about flirting as well and can be evasive in the beginning because they need time to process things.


Venus in Gemini: talkative and very media influenced. They’re usually kind of recluse and have very high octave dialogue and minds to match-they’re charming and captivating but out of reach somehow-they’re actions don’t ever match up and what’s even more they’re very perplexing emotionally! They run hot and cold and at times the cold phase last the longest-punk rock and kind of indie with a whole lot of twist. They have like nice arms like seriously


Venus in cancer: athletic or homebodies no inbetween, tend to be very easy going and quiet not super into loud or conceded types and they’re also a bit conservative but they’re usually not aware of this. They can be traditional but they also have a very independent vibe about themselves that clashes with the nurturing nature in them. They don’t like forced commitment and steer clear of relationships unless someone’s really winning them over! They love simplistic things and warm smiles and hugs and some of the sweetest guys you’ll meet! I usually notice their muscles or stomach region


Venus in Leo: COCKYYY and I mean this in a good way but boy oh boy they honestly like showing off :) they feel like they’re in a horse race with everyone and love to make sure everyone knows about them. They’re pretty lighthearted and innocent and actually have huge hearts. They tend to dive all into their relationships and get taken advantage of a lot because of this. They’re very old school romantic and will usually be kinda mean and extra when they like you! They don’t usually dress flashy but they do have expensive taste. A lot of them groom and are big on their body features. So don’t be surprised if he mentions his “member” a lot. I usually notice their backs or hair


Venus in Virgo: sweet! Passive aggressive though. They aren’t the types to be loud or in your face and actually like to be lowky-like underground type of lowky. They’re very soft spoken and tend to be sort of on the brainy side when I comes to their interactions! They value connections and good conversation. They are also very sensual and love hugs and being touched so if your interested in one-don’t be scared to touch him from time to time and they’re very committed guys and once they know you’re interested they tend to drop everyone else if they take you seriously enough. They have routines and hate hate hate having that interrupted! They usually just put people in little categories and boxes to make there life more organized. Very clean!!! And often dress nice when there around someone they love but if not they dress casual. They have cute little bellies though!


Venus in libra: SMILES. Wow they really have beautiful smiles and they have a easy beauty about them! They’re not super emotional when it comes down to interactions and I’ve noticed that they hare people that come on to strong or to interested and may even show this on their face despite their smiles. They like hanging out with friends and love peaceful things like bowling and even just going out to eat. They usually like to “hang out” with someone before they go and do anything beyond that. They’re pretty feminine in nature and intune with their more sensitive side. They can be indecisive and evasive when things are overwhelming them. They dress like a mix of casual and fitting clothing to dressy and classy. Oh they have nice buns 🙄


Venus in Scorpio: okay despite all those archetypes they’re super super super cuddly and huge ass babies(excuse my language) they act mean on the in set and have an intense demeanor but usually this is during the early stages of knowing them! Once you get to know them and they trust you they’re so childlike and bubbly-they’re intimating aura is still there but it’s redirected. They can be really insecure and do things out of spite when they’re hurt-they love really hard and though they don’t like to admit they’re deeply afraid of being rejected no matter how many times you say you love them. Just hug them a lot and smile at them-and give in sometimes when they’re having an episode. They’re like watery Aries venus in my eyes and have humongous hearts. I say they dress maninly in sweats and casual wear. They love black and red and are fairly ambitious and well off. They have watery eyes or really black or defined eyes. There crotch region can seem mysterious and hard to define.


Venus in Sagittarius: aloof-ALOOF-ALOOOOOFFF. They’re very cool in temperature and don’t usually express very many sides of there emotions unless they feel a need to. They have fast moving feelings which is why I think they come across this way. They either tend to be intense or calm and they are very free spirits no matter what. They love to explore and always see the big picture. They want love based on desire and crave something that challenges them but they are often okay with the single life. They can be soooo captivating and have a very earthy and wild look about them. They look amazing in beards and have wide hips! The best example I could do for this is Chris Pratt. He’s not a sag venus but the way his frame is kinda similar to sag venus men I’ve seen.


Venus in Capricorn: there weight fluctuates a lot from what I’ve seen and they tend to lean towards to the bearded look-at some point in their lives. They have very warm and cozy personalities and are way way wayyyy more open and easy going then cap moon or sun. They tend to take relationships with others very seriously be it their family/friends/kids/lover they see it as a duty and something that demands maturity. They dress kind of punk rock ish and a mix of business and well put together. They aren’t ones to play coy and have blunt personalities. They hate ignorance and don’t like people that don’t have self control and in fact that’s the quickest way to set them off. They can be ass holes sometimes(excuse my language) and have a dry humor. They are super sensitive underneath and unlike their sister sign they don’t freak out at the idea of a relationship so long as both people involved know what their in for.


Venus in Aquarius: interesting fellas! They are super deep and honestly you may never really get to know them because their inner self is changing around all the time. They can be a bit melancholy and sway between bouts of depression and bouts of over enthusiasm. From what I can see they are very happy people and honestly love meeting new people! They are also always doing something odd and have cool hobbies! A lot of the ones I’ve known love photography and music and blogging! They dress sort of trendy and grungy!. They are super humble and modest and don’t really like spotlight that much. As far as dating goes? UHM aha they’re so quirky and odd and love so hard and you’ll never know because they put up a detached front but similarly to aqua moons they are super dedicated and love love love their partners! They just suck at showing it.


Venus in Pisces: elusive and very turbulent. They can be very mysterious-more than Scorpio Venus from what I’ve seen and they have this affect that lures you into them like that fish net that caught dory and Nemo. They have very captivating body movements and can seem like they’re not really there sometimes. I call them the past life boys only because it can seem like they’re acting out patterns that have already taken place at times like they’re a walking deja vu. They can be disarming and have a very charming yet frightening disposition that leaves you vulnerable and confused. Romantically they don’t make sense and can send a plethora of signals that you may not be able to understand. They love with their soul and it can be a deep and overwhelming thing if you’re not ready. They tend to be quite and extremely humble. I can’t say they dress any specific way.


Now there’s a bunch of things to consider like aspects and house placements but this is just in my personal experience of men with these venus signs alone.

Theres tons of these floating around the witchy side of tumblr, but I felt I could add some things to the table. Here is my personal master list of witch types!

Ceremonial Witch: Usually the old style of witchcraft is long gone, but these witches live by it. They wear robes, and keep altars and lengthy rituals close to heart.

Draconic Witch: A witch who is often associated with dragons, and is a very fearsome person to come across. This type of witch is almost going extinct, and much of the teaching are passed down personally between teacher and pupil.

Divination Witch: Yes, divination is more of something you can do, but to me, its a type of witch. This witch uses tools and other materials to communicate with spirits, deitys, or their own intuition to get answers or stories they may or may not have known.

Desert Witch: For the witches who live in the desert, they often find ways to make the little materials around them work. Sand, bones, and the herbs that grow around are often the things they use in their magick.

Eclectic Witch: Someone who is not set in there path, but has found many types of witchcraft that suit their craft. Often are associated with many titles, ranging from Storm to Green. Many witches are this.

Energy Witch: These witches use magic visually and internally. They cast circles, and make magic happen using the energy the gain and harvest.

Faery/Nymph Witch: Often an eclectic witch who looks to speak and work with the Fae and other nature spirits (such as Nymphs). This practice is often different for every witch.

Green/Kitchen Witch: Most people consider these two seperate crafts, but usually where one is, the other one is close behind. Witches who are Green enjoy nature, herbs, and anything to do with plants. Kitchen witches (and many, many, MANY, green witches) find uses for plants and incorporate them into food and potions.

Hedge Witch: Sort of a time traveler, but in realm form. These witches live between the astral world, real world, and spirit world.

Heriditary Witch: You were born into a witch family. These witches are often the owners of many hidden gifts, and always have a magical touch. Many also have traditions many other witches do not have.

Moon Witch: Most witches do work with the moon yes, but this type of witch specifically works with it in ways others dont. They revolve certain spells around it, sometimes their days, and often talk to it when they have free time in the night.

Pop Culture Witch: This doesnt just include pop music, but these witches intertwine with magick with music and other forms of entertainment (movies, books, etc.).

Spirit Workers: Witches of this sort tend to be able to speak to the dead, or if not, are definitly not afraid to. Magic to them is revolved around spirits and people of another realm.

Storm Witch: Anyone with a love of storms (and is a witch) has probably done some storm magick. This is someone fearless enough to call lighting, and move the winds.

Sea Witch: The smell of the ocean is this witches best friend. They use the oceans divine sand, seashells, and water to create the magick they so desire. Most also work with mermaids.

Swamp Witch: Often live near rivers, lakes, and of course, swamps. They love the bugs and insects, and devote most of their time walking in the mud, or collecting it for healing.

Sun Witch: Gets most of their energy from the sun other than the moon. Their magic is full of energy, and candles are these witches best friends.

Techno Witch: These witches manage to put magic into text messages, and lace their posts with protection. A curse is just a phonecall away.

Vampric Witch: A vampire, or one who works closely with one, is usually the only one who considers this magick. They use other peoples energy and relay it into their own spells.

Wiccan Witch: This is a witch who has took Wicca as their religion. They use rituals and the power of their gods and goddesses to complete their magick.

Crystal/Rock Witch: Witches of this type use natural occurring rocks and crystals in their craft, absorbing the energy and attributes each one has.

Blood Witch: Blood witches are witches that use blood in their magic, and it’s super powerful. Often takes a lot of practice, and if done wrong, the consequences are unimaginable.

Shadow Witch: A witch who often works with his/her/their own shadow, or in the shadows just as a general statement.

Chaos Witch: This witch is talented in chaos magick, and is often very talented in other types of destructive magick.

Sex Witch: Uses sexual activites in there magick, and uses them to conjure and control energy.

Fabric Witch: A witch that uses fabric and sewing materials to create magick. Can include poppets/voodoo dolls, stichery, or clothing.

Space Witches:Witches that use astrology and anything spacey in their practice.

Music Witches:Music flows through them, provides them energy, and lyrics are often their spells.

Thats it for now! Ill add more as I become familiar to them. If you have any suggestions, please message me.

THIS IS NOT TO DEFINE YOUR PRACTICE. THIS IS JUST FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE CURIOUS. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO IDENTIFY AS ANY OF THESE. I WILL IGNORE ALL HATE.

Elven anatomy and physiology* headcanons

Mostly based on canon and observation, some actually canon and sometimes just plain making it up for fun. I have another one for dwarves coming, and may do one for qunari.

*I hope I’m using that term right.

  • Elves are androgynous and display minimum sexual dimorphism; the only visible differences between an elf with a uterus and an elf without is breasts and slightly wider hips.
  • Though elves have thinner body hair than other races some elves have thicker hair than others and sport very faint, light growths of fuzz along their jaw, chin and above their lips - what passes for beards amongst elves.
  • Ears are mobile, unless they put effort into avoiding it their ears will be almost constantly twitching, either as part of their emotional body language or due to reacting to sound. Their size, shape and mobility lends elves better hearing than most races (save Vashoth and Qunari who have similar ears). They’re also more tactile (sensitive to touch).
  • Hair and eye colours unseen in humans are known to occur in elves, such as eyes in golds, greens and blues in incredibly bright or pale tones, as well as shades of purple and violet. Assuming Ghilan'nain did not have albinism or dye her hair, white or platinum blonde hair can also occur naturally (as in before the pigment starts fading from age).
  • They also canonically have an extra layer behind the retina which gives them tapetum lucidum, or “eye-shine”, which catches light and shines it back through the lens. At night this will allow them night vision. As a result of evolving to see in the dark, the size of their eyes is much larger in order to catch the maximum amount of light, there are barely any whites to an elf’s eyes, with the iris and pupil taking up most of the eye. It’s also likely they have excellent day vision as well. Their pupils contracting and expand rather like a cats.
  • As a side note to the above, elves are likely not diurnal by nature (diurnal species having no use for night-vision). Although active during the day, they are likely just as active at dusk, dawn and sometimes night (preferably when there is a full moon or similar light source). City elves in general, having adjusted to human norms likely keep diurnal time patterns by habit (although elven rogues no doubt take advantage of their nature). Dalish camps however are more likely to see full activity on a near 24-hour basis, some clan members sleeping through the day, others through the night.
  • Leg muscles are also more highly developed than in other races, their thighs tend to be thicker and even a mildly malnourished city elf with no martial training could probably cause a decent amount of damage with a kick.
  • The soles of their feet are much coarser and thicker-skinned than other races, and more prone to thick callouses, making the skin harder to cut or damage. This is likely why elves do not always bother with shoes (though there are still conditions where shoes should be worn).
  • There is a notable physical difference between Dalish and city elves (or those few city elves who did not grow up in abject poverty). Due to malnourishment, city elves are typically smaller than humans, and lacking body fat (and often muscle mass) tend to have the short incredibly skinny “lithe, willowy” frames humans have come to associate elves with. Dalish elves on the other hand (while still prone to slimmer frames on average) get a large amount of daily exercise and train in combat and archery from a young age, as such you would be hard pressed to find a Dalish without at least some degree of notable muscle. Being archers, it would in fact be incredibly strange to find a Dalish without very defined back muscles. Being less prone to suffering malnutrition (short of accidents) they also tend to be taller and stand as tall as many humans, with an average height of 5'5".
  • A side effect of their innate magical nature - their dormant immortality and dreamer abilities - is that elves both have incredible memories compared to other races, usually forgetting only their earliest memories. A rare few even possessing true eidetic memories allowing them to recall their entire lives in clarity. 
  • They have a tendency to enter a state of lucid dreaming far more often than other races their dreams usually being vivid and clear and easily recalled upon waking (even those who are not mages).
  • Also due to their inherent connection to magic, all elves will typically display at least some degree sensitivity to arcane energy, even those who do not develop magical abilities themselves (albeit to varying degrees). Many will notice when something “feels off”, which is usually subconsciously noticing a shift in the veil or a nearby spirit, or picking up on some residual magical energy left from a spell or enchantment. Elven mages also tend to do better in the spirit school than their non-elven peers.

True Void Energy Intro

Originally posted by the-devil-beside-you


Disclaimer: Please take into account that all of this is UPG (Unverified Personal Gnosis). My experiences working with Void entities are deeply personal and might not reflect your own experiences.

Having addressed this, I will jump right into it and talk a bit about Void energy.

Many people seem to think that all Void energy is the same. Outer space and emptiness are talked about as if they are interchangeable or equivalent. In my experience, this is definitely not the case. While there might be similarities between Outer Space Void and what I call “True Void”, there are also some very evident differences. In my case, I work with True Void entities primarily, and the things I will be discussing throughout this series are relating to and can usually only be applied or generalized to True Void spirits & energy.

Where can I find it?

True Void energy is most frequently found in True Void spaces in the astral (however, it surrounds us in negligible quantities no matter where we are). It also tends to congregate in liminal spaces, in places of transition, and in areas that have been abandoned or dead for a long time.

What are its uses?

While True Void energy harnessed by a skilled energy worker can do everything from healing to serious offensive damage, the most common uses for True Void energy that I have witnessed are Void-walking (traveling from one destination to another through Void spaces) and a derivative of shadow work. (I say a derivative of shadow work because commonly, shadow work is about acceptance or working with the shadow-self. True Void Shadow Work involves the manipulation of Void energy to control darkness/shadows).

Description:

In terms of a specific description, True Void energy has a magnetizing quality to it that is difficult to put into words or understand unless you have worked with it before. This energy is incredibly adaptable. Oftentimes, it will take on the qualities of surrounding energy. For example, if Void energy is found in an astral space heavily populated by fire elementals, it might acquire the same properties as the energy they give off. It might become warmer, more volatile, and also easier to handle.

Yet, Void energy would still remain unmistakably….voidy. You’d still feel an underlying dark, cold pull towards it. It’d still be inexplicably heavy in your hands despite appearing almost insubstantial. Handling it for an extended of period of time would still leave you with the odd impression of frostbite dancing on your fingertips.

Working with it:

Working with True Void energy might leave you feeling ill or drained (especially if you are not “aligned” with it). Handling this type of energy is much more difficult for humans than handling other energy sources, due to the fact that most living things are not compatible with it.

Added to this, Void energy has the interesting property of “taking” from its non-native users (especially if they are not highly proficient at energy manipulation and knowledgeable of Void energy specifically). For an unprepared energy worker, it might replicate the effects of an energy parasite. These effects (physical, emotional, and energetic) might be felt for days after having worked with it. Think of it like a really terrible hangover.

My belief as to why True Void energy has this specific effect on things is that it tends to consume what is in its path in an effort to return it to a balanced, chaotic state. However, this does not mean that True Void energy is inherently evil. Additionally, it does not fit into the more common energy alignments of “Light” or “Dark”. Rather, it appears to have its own special classification.

Compatible alignments:

Void energy generally tends to attract parasites. From what I have seen, it doesn’t seem to have the same negative impact on parasitic entities as it does on other creatures. One explanation for this could be that parasitic entities have evolved and adapted to hide in True Void spaces to protect themselves. Alternatively, it is possible that they still experience negative effects, but are more resilient and able to endure longer exposure to True Void than other species.

Another True-Void “tolerant” energy alignment would be Death energy. Death workers like reapers and grims tend to be relatively comfortable in the presence of True Void energy.

Nature spirits, fae spirits, light-aligned spirits, and “livelier” energy-aligned beings, on the other hand, might find True Void to be repulsive. They might also feel particularly affected by its draining qualities. The nature entities that I have encountered generally tend to show a dislike for True Void energy workers.

Demonic entities (especially hellborn demonic entities) also appear to have a particular distaste for True Void. They might react aggressively or go out of their way to avoid encountering True Void entities. This seems to stem from a historical event that placed hellborn demonic spirits against True Void entities (and/or energy). While I am not privy to the details of this event at the moment, I will continue to update the series as I gain more insight into the situation.

This has been my intro to Void energy! In the future, I hope to discuss more about True Void entities, their culture, and my personal experiences working with them.

Fenris Theory

You guys…

So I was recently watching party comments/reactions for certain thingies for DA2, and I came across a very crazy realization.

So when the whole party is being blood magicked by Idunna, the craziest things happened. So like - when Hawke asks these guys what the hell is wrong with them because they’re telling him to take it easy on her, all of the party members are like - naaaahhh just be gentle, she’s nice and we shouldn’t be hard on her - ALL EXCEPT for the mages…

…and FENRIS.

So I was like - DA FUCK. All the mages are like - “Woah, what the hell am I saying, this lady is doing something weird, Hawke.” And everyone who isn’t a mage is like - “take it easy, she’s had it rough blah blah”, EXCEPT for Fenris! When Hawke is like, “what the hell is wrong with you?” Fenris is like “I-I don’t know, be careful.”

WAT.

Why is he the only non-mage who doesn’t get fooled or enchanted (all the way) by this blood mage?

Obviously the answer is because he has those markings - BUT do you realize what this means!? You guys - this means Fenris’s connection to the fade is as strong as a mage’s.

Those lyrium markings don’t just affect his physical abilities, but his entire body is wired like a mage’s. He’s just as connected to the fade - Fenris just isn’t marked by lyrium - he IS lyrium. Woooaaahh. So basically - because lyrium exists in the fade just as much as in reality - his abilities actually give them the ability to phase into the fade.

THAT’S WHAT HE’S DOING WHEN HE PHASES.

He’s phasing in and out of the fade!

SOOOOOO.

That also means that if he basically has that ability, then he should be able to physically travel between the two worlds. HEHEHE.

This also means that if he is lyrium, he should be able to hear and understand the song of both blue and red lyrium. (I’ll get to that significance another time).

What this also means, that if you for some insane reason, chose to have your Hawke “die” in the fade (the creators said that whoever was left in there isn’t necessarily dead) then Fenris is actually the only person (now that the Inquisitor had their arm chopped off) that is capable of saving him.

If Fenris is this perfect blend of a living lyrium catalyst, he could successfully enter the fade and get Hawke out of there. I firmly believe that if that was studied more than he would be able to do it. As Danarius had wanted of his slave, Fenris was basically a limitless supply of lyrium for his magic.(Again, how this is done I will get into another time).

Another thing that made me stop and turn to look at Fenris a couple times is his insane ability to feel the veil. Though they could be just offhand comments, I somehow doubt that. The example I’m referring to here is his comment as you walk on the Bone Pit for the first time. Fenris says: “Many slaves died here, their cries linger in the stone.” But if you recall from any Dragon Age lore, we all know that the veil is thin where great tragedy struck, such as war, murder, and of course the slaughtering of many innocent slaves. It’s obvious that what Fenris is “hearing” is the cries of the spirits who are mimicking the deaths of those slaves that were slaughtered. But the only way one could hear that, would be if they could actually feel the veil, much like any other mage who is attuned to the Fade. Fenris is just as attuned to it, and he shows this time and time again.

Of course he could just be being epic, but again, I doubt that, as that’s a pretty amazing comment for someone who isn’t a mage.

I’m also piecing this together in the aspect about this - after Fenris sleeps with Hawke, he says he’s was able to recall his memories. I think by now that us FenHawke shippers have a canon that Fenris’s markings light up during “intense” moments, but think about this. What if the reason why Fenris is able to recall his memories at that time is because his lyrium is allowing him to brief the fade? What if those markings bring him ever closer to the fade, to a point where spirits would begin to take the shape of his memories that he so desperately wants back? That would explain why he was able to recall those memories, even though his mind had been wiped, and also why he immediately forgot them once they had stopped.

Now, I know you must be thinking “wait - wouldn’t that mean that Fenris would be able to recall his memories every time he lit up to tear someone’s heart out?”

No, not necessarily.

I’m a huge fan of the idea that spirits of compassion, though rare, tend to seek those that are searching and looking for something. While Fenris fights, that’s obviously not pleasurable, and his mind isn’t focused on the things he wants.

However, I believe that while he and Hawke slept together, that was a moment of intense want. He wanted something, and his mind was in a place where coupled with that intense emotion, his lyrium linked to the fade. In this instance, it wouldn’t be too surprising that a spirit came along and generously allowed him to recall his memories.

I like this theory, and I think that, out of some of the ones I’ve heard, this is nicely simple and would explain a lot of his power.

I’ll keep adding to this if I find more proof!

(Also, if you’d like, I’ve posted a theory on how this plays a part in Hawke’s rescue. Check it out)
