the emotions are on the rise

When 18-year-old Nermeen Ileiwat first began college, she could not wait to get into a relationship — maybe even get engaged before graduation. But after one year, the rising sophomore realized she had no idea what she wanted out of life and was in no position to get into a relationship.

That decision didn’t last long. Only a few months after, Ileiwat met someone at a party, and their friendship quickly turned into something more.

However, dating was not that simple for the now 21-year-olds who are Muslim. They have religious restrictions that limit physical contact in premarital relationships. They chose to focus more on developing their emotional intimacy, with the occasional hug or kiss. Out of respect for their religious beliefs, Ileiwat and her boyfriend decided not to engage in any advanced sexual activity until they’re married.

For young couples like them, the idea of dating is common, and it means balancing their religious views with their desire for emotional intimacy. But the term “dating” still invites an offensive suggestion for many Muslims, especially older ones, irrespective of how innocent the relationship may be. Dating is still linked to its Western origins, which implies underlying expectations of sexual interactions — if not an outright premarital sexual relationship — which Islamic texts prohibit.

But Islam does not forbid love.

Witcher moments (11) - Yennefer’s attitude

- I forgot, she said. Always on his side, aren’t you, Nenneke? Always worrying about him. Like the mother he never had.

- And you’re always against him, smiled the priestess. Bestowing him with strong feelings, as usual. And defending yourself as hard as you can not to call the feelings by their rightful name.

Once again, Ciri felt fury rise up somewhere in the pit of her stomach, and her temples throbbed with spite and rebellion. She remembered how many times and under what circumstances she had heard that name. Yennefer. A name which caused unease, a name which was the symbol of some sinister secret. She guessed what that secret was.

———————————–

- You, on the other hand, Nenneke, retorted the magician, are amusing yourself, as usual, analysing other people’s emotions, and on top of that interpreting them to suit yourself!

- And pulling my nose into other people’s business?

- I didn’t want to say that. Yennefer tossed her black locks, which gleamed and writhed like snakes. Thank you for doing so for me. And now let us change the subject, please, because the one we were discussing is exceptionally silly—disgraceful in front of our young pupil. And as for being understanding, as you ask … I will be. But kind-hearted with that, there might be a problem because, after all, it is widely thought I don’t possess any such organ. But we’ll manage somehow.

“Andrzej Sapkowski - Blood of elves”


Although she has almost 100 years old, Yen acts like a teenager when it comes to her love for Geralt. This makes me think that Geralt is her first real love. I know it’s a wild guess but there is a huge difference between Yennefer known by the world and Yennefer when it comes to Geralt. I think she loves for the first time and she instinctively tries to deal with the feelings which shook her inner world. The books talk a lot about Geralt’s transformation and understanding of the fact that he can feel, that he can love, but not very much about Yen and I think she suffers the same inner transformation as Geralt.
Moments like this when she almost panics when Nenneke tries to talk to her about her feelings is like the reaction of a teenager asked about her boyfriend. Her rational mind is almost non-existent when she’s around Geralt or she’s asked about him. She uses sarcasm or aggressiveness to defend herself but she barely succeeds in keeping it rational.
So, basically, their story in the beginning is about 2 people who fell in love for the first time when they tought they never will and their journey to accept their feelings.

I wish I had a good English so I can explain it better…

Today was a good day. Celebrated my 34th birthday (April 15) and Huxley’s 2nd (April 26) with a surprise visit from Landen :)

Although I couldn’t attend the #marchforscience in DC, I spent today with my children, whom I devote my existence to guiding, educating, and advising How, not What to think. Happy #earthday 🌏 to all, and to all, a good #fight ✊🏼#standupforscience

So incredibly proud of all ye soldiers of science, reason, and intellectual honesty the world over who participated in the world’s first #ScienceMarch. It’s been personally a mixed bag of emotions: proud to be living in a generation of people so engaged in the process of science from university to the lab, and from the blog to the streets; yet, disappointed that it’s come to this, but here we are.

As a few signs I spotted stated poignantly – the seas are rising, but so are we.

Six movies i can watch anytime
Tagged by @crushed-andpulverised and @allgoodchains - thanks mates!

1. Sherlock Holmes
Especially the 2009 one. These movies can even make me happy when im very sad. The chemistry between Downey and Law is exceptional and their portraying of the characters are, if you ask me, just exactly right. As is the scenery, the music and of course the story. Guy Ritchie got everything spot on and i cant wait for the next one.

2. Batman: The dark knight rises
I remember seeing this movie with my dad in an old skool cinema in 2012 somewhere in Belguim. I had never seen a batman movie before and i was just blown away. I have seen it, and the other ones, many times after that. They’re just so bloody good?? Also, Christian bale and Tom Hardy are very high on my favourite-actors-of-all-time-list so, yeah 😌

3. Inception
If someone asks for my favourite movie, id never answer with inception. Even though its probably one of the few movies i actually could watch anytime. Ive seen it twice in one day once. Theres just really nothing like it, is there?

4. Becoming Jane
The only reason i watched this movie is because i was having a big James McAvoy phase and this was the only movie on netflix with him in it i hadnt seen already. Since im not a really big fan of costume dramas, i went in with very low expectations. Well, i still weep about it sometimes. I adore Jane and Tom and the love between them. Its just everything i want in life, you know. I usually don’t watch the ending though, I refuse to acknowledge they existence of that ending lol. And the music!! Dont get me started on that omfsdgh. I could go on and on about why i love this movie.

5. Ratatouille
Cant really explain it, just like it a lot. The only animated movie i can really enjoy watching anytime

6. The Prestige
Oh hey, its another damn Christopher nolan movie. Big fan apparently 🙃. Anyway, its a bit surrealistic, but it doesnt feel that way. The plot twists are oustanding and for me, unpredictable (obv). Again, Christian Bale, my hero. Good movie 10/10

This has been fun, thanks again for tagging me! 💞

anonymous asked:

Hello this might seem weird but I don't really get what sun, moon and rising signs are. Even though I know my star sign is Leo and rising and moon is Scorpio

Your Rising Sign, otherwise known as an Ascendant, is the Zodiac Sign that was rising on the eastern horizon at the moment you were born. Upon meeting you, people will interact with your rising sign.
In astrology language, your Sun sign dictates your zodiac personality, while you Moon sign, the second most important influence in your horoscope chart after the Sun, represents your emotions, your inner mood. And the two together strongly influence your emotional mode of operation.

anonymous asked:

i have pisces in my sun, mars, mercury and rising. i always cry and i don't mind it because i release my emotions and then i feel pretty relax after but i don't want to have such strong emotions in the first place. do you have any advice on how to control or be more stable with myself?? my moon is aqaurius and even tho i allow my emotions i don't really understand myself sometimes...

I think if you want to gain control of your emotions, you have to embrace the fact that your emotions are strong. Not embracing your emotions can give you the wrong tools to handle yourself emotionally. Maybe you should accept them genuinely, even if you think it’s logically stupid and ridiculous.

Mars Signs

Mars in Aries: Master of Aries, Mars gives the natives tons of energy, sex appeal to resell, and sometimes an explosive character that you will have to learn to control. Fortunately, your anger soon evaporates. Enthusiastic, assertive and bold, you are a natural leader who attracts attention even without looking for it.

Mars in Taurus: You are a nervous person, you work hard, you have feet on the ground. Determined, persevering, sensible and indefatigable, you can be distracted by the desires of the flesh, but when you engage in something, whether in a relationship or in a job, it is for the long-term - and the money. Born with great practicality, you pay attention to material goods and social status, often far more than you would like to admit.

Mars in Gemini: With the planet of aggression in the sign of the twins, you are fiery, contentious, nervous and irritable. Although you adore debating, you are not able to distinguish important principles from points of detail. Your energy rises and falls at a sometimes dizzy pace, but you have a keen and ingenious mind, and you are incredibly fun.

Mars in Cancer: You are a basically emotional person who needs to master his moods before he can successfully achieve his goals. If you do not understand it, you tend to make the head. You are extremely sensitive, but you may give people signs so subtle that many do not perceive them. In a couple relationship, you may be possessive and tenacious while you should be angry and take the door. You cook in your juice. You bury your emotions. You have to learn to be direct. But you are also awake, protective, devoted and imaginative, in bed and elsewhere.

Mars in Leo: Confident, exalted and indefatigable, you have passion, presence and continuation in ideas. When you are hired for a cause or an activity, virtually nothing can stop you. That’s right, you can be egotistic (which means you’re bringing too much interest to your own person) and arrogant, and your need to have an audience can be boring. However, your warmth, your enthusiasm and your eagerness to take the first step bring you many admirers, sentimentally and elsewhere. You create the excitement.

Mars in Virgo: Control is of paramount importance to you. You work hard, you are calculator and ready to look really straight in the eye. Sensible and methodical, you can detach yourself from your emotions when your success depends on it. This quality is advantageous for your career. In your private life, it gives you the amazing ability to turn on and off your sexual urges, at will like it.

Mars in Libra: In the best of cases, you are friendly, charming, you have class and you are incredibly attractive. You enjoy social life and you are willing to compromise, emotionally and in other situations. But you turn at a loss without a partner, professionally and personally. Moreover, you tend to conceal your uncertainties and insecurities by justifying your inconsiderate statements with more passion than logic, although you are proud of your rational mind. People sometimes feel compelled to say that they agree with you in order to simply put an end to the discussion.

Mars in Scorpio: You are courageous and cunning, determined, and you provide for your own needs. Gifted with a formidable will and unwavering desires, you also have a strong libido and are also intensely emotional. You can not stop yourself from succumbing to powerful feelings, and it is possible that you struggle with jealousy and the urge to seek revenge. It is not easy to adapt to changing circumstances, but you have a solid and reliable source of internal energy and a great deal of personal power. It is a beneficial position.

Mars in Sagittarius: Independent and enthusiastic, you have strong convictions, a love for outdoor activities, and a deep desire for adventure. But you may be negligent and provocative, and your crusades, begun with so much eagerness, do not always come to an end. You are also fair, direct, idealistic, and you can quickly gather your energy, especially if you have gone on an adventure.

Mars in Capricorn: Your desires, sexual or otherwise, are powerful, and your ambitions are targeted. When you feel recognized, your energy is reliable and you are persistent; But when you feel upset, your vitality drops. Effective, systematic and controlled, you respect tradition and authority, and you often reach the top of the hierarchy. You understand the hierarchies and you are, in different ways, a natural leader. But when you do not get the obedience you require, you can be incredibly cold. You usually try to hide your anger, but when it escapes, it’s unpleasant.

Mars in Aquarius: Whenever possible, you prefer the least traveled path. You are enterprising, impatient, unpredictable, and you are not afraid to take risuqes. Conventions bore you. Modern ideas captivate you and you appreciate the idea of ​​progress. Change makes you excited. You are independent, idealist and friendly. But emotionally, you can be rather cold, you even rebellion sometimes just to make you understand something.

Mars in Pisces: You fall deeply in love. You are generous, changeable, agitated and highly intuitive. But when emotional uproar exceeds your tolerance threshold, you tend to close. When this happens, your will evaporates, you have motivation problems, you can discourage your friends by your passivity, and your physical energy disappears. One of the main challenges in your life is to regulate your energy, which can often be the slave to your feelings.

This is a very direct, quick to anger person. You might catch this person doing the most cursing at drivers on the way to work in rush hour traffic.

The passion of this rising sign may throw folks off if their Sun sign and features reflect a Taurus, or Libra who have a softer, less intense, more amiable appearance and features.

Taurus rising / Taurus ascendant

A Scorpio individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

A square jaw and wide grin with shiny white teeth could mislead folks if this person is a double Leo or double Sagittarius for example. They don’t know that this tamed bull is really a wild animal behind the veneer.

Gemini rising / Gemini ascendant

This is one inquisitive rising sign. This is the person who while riding the bus or the subway is talking to the person sitting or standing next to them making small talk.

Dating someone who appears to not be compatible. A Sagittarius individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

This can be a confusing ascendant for someone who is a double Pisces for instance. These mental exercises of human interaction can be exhausting and cause them to retreat into isolation. People who knew them as this chatterbox person has to learn to accept who this person is.

Cancer rising / Cancer ascendant

This is a cagey rising sign. Water signs are known as “mute” signs. This  rising sign might go about its business without saying a single word.

A Capricorn individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

With Aquarius on their descendant they are actually very concerned with making and maintaining friendships. An Aquarius individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

Once you get to know them, that confident nature might prove to be a show if their Sun and/or Moon are feminine signs.

Virgo rising / Virgo ascendant

This is the person who tries to do everything, it may look like they are frantically moving around in a rush doing 10 things at once. Fidgeting with their phone, their coffee, their cigarette.

In relationships, with Gemini on their descendant they actually do have an attention to detail in their relationships.

About business. Even if you’re not in business, people see your straight face and calm demeanor and think you might be. You always appear to be headed somewhere purposefully.

The serious and rigid appearance melts away when they know you especially if they have lighthearted Sagittarius or Gemini planets as luminaries.

Aquarius rising / Aquarius ascendant

They actually do love the attention from a significant other in a relationship having Leo on their descendant. A Leo individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

The lighthearted presentation might make way for a much more emotional personal life if they have water signs as luminaries.

Pisces rising / Pisces ascendant

This dreamy eyed and sensitive appearing person is rather quiet, drawing both sympathetic people but also predatory individuals. When Pisces risings move about they carry with them an aura of spirituality. They can convince people of many of things with an appealing emotional approach.  They are actually more critical and detail oriented than they appear in their relationships with Virgo on the descendant. A Virgo individual may help balance you in relationships very well provided chart and personality compatibility.

Pisces ascendants may appear sensitive but might actually be a roaring beast beyond the appearance especially if they have signs like Aries or Sagittarius as luminaries.

I noticed something about the latest episode that hasn’t really been discussed? Or at least I haven’t seen any discussion about it. Basically the possibility that just for a moment, Rose was able to talk to Steven

Listen, just like how the room Connie acted, room Rose went along with Steven, not acting like the Rose we have seen in past episodes, at least not fully. 

She maintains these half-lidded tired looking eyes as if she is not fully there and continues to behave how Steven has always dreamed she would be

Its somewhat unsettling to see these sorts of expressions in contrast to the wide eyed, expressive, excitable emotions we usually see from Rose in flashbacks. 

But then Steven said “You’re not my mom.”

“I’m not?”

We know from open book that the room basically takes all its orders and interpretations from Steven. The room Connie was going along with Steven just like rose was, until she was told not to do what Steven wanted, something that contrasted what she was supposed to be. And room Rose was told “You’re not my mom.”

So she began to act in an un-motherly way, her image becoming intimidating and a storm rising all around her.

But then, she does something room Connie wasn’t able to do. She doesn’t continue listening to Steven’s ‘order’ that she wasn’t his mom anymore. She goes on to console him.

“Steven, you know that isn’t true. In the tape I left you I told you how much I wanted to have you and let you exist, do you think what I said to you in the tape was a lie?”

Her expression seems much more alert and focused, she’s lost that ‘fake’ sort of feeling she had before. She strays away from what Steven told her, that she wasn’t his mom, something room Connie wasn’t able to do. 

This action makes it seem like just maybe, she was really able to communicate with him for a moment. That she wasn’t just a construct of the room, only able to follow orders and listen to what Steven says. 

She acts like a mother when she was told she wasn’t. You could argue that this is simply Steven knowing what he needs to hear and the room showing it to him but you cannot completely rule this theory out:

What if Rose really was able to console Steven through the room?

Fourth House: Your Aversion

Your 4th house ruler shows what you received excessive exposure to during childhood. As a result, you might develop an aversion to the traits of the sign on the 4th house cusp. 

The following is organized by your 4th house ruler.

Aries 4th House: emotion/thoughtless impulse; you might to be a hard, cold cap rising who is averse to loud, brash personalities

Taurus 4th House: tradition/materialism/slow movement; you might be be an aqua rising who craves freedom and revolution

Cancer 4th House: sympathy/emotional manipulation; you might be a tough, independent aries rising who refuses to be told what to do

Gemini 4th House: talking/meaningless chatter/excessive communication; you might be a pisces rising who values meaningful communication, solitude, and silence

Leo 4th House: attention/narcissism; you might be a taurus rising who prefers to blend into the background and despises bragging/braggarts [analysis of psychology below]

Virgo 4th House: criticism/judgement/boredom; gemini rising who prefers to be entertained and open-minded

Libra 4th House: compromise/emotional neglect; cancer rising who desperately tries to control environment/other people to avoid compromise

Scorpio 4th House: scrutinity/paranoia/invasion of privacy; you might be a leo rising who self-aggrandizes, prefers to keep thigns light, and hide their flaws

Sagittarius 4th House: irresponsibility; virgo rising, self-explanatory

Capricorn 4th House: expectations/isolation; libra rising, self-explanatory [analysis 2]

Aquarius 4th House: eccentric/erratic behavior; scorpio rising, prefers to adopt a stoic, mysterious persona

Pisces 4th House: delusion/self-sacrifice; sagittarius rising who tries to learn about the world at large, stay grounded in reality, and has selfiish tendencies [analysis 3]

[1] Taurus risings often have parents who smother them with attention, to the point where they feel like they’re controlled and constantly watched. Parents may also have narcistic tendencies and seek approval/fish for compliments from their children while witholding praise. Parents may be act entitled to the child’s time and attention, leaving little room for peace, solitude, and self-care. This causes the adult Taurus rising to shy away from attention-seeking (leo-like) personalities and enjoy solitude, silence, and peace. 

[2] Libra risings can have parents with harsh capricorn qualities; parents who don’t hesitate to demean their own children in the name of “pusing them further,” who withold approval and affection, who may prevent the child from spending time wirh friends, who make the child feel lonely and unworthy. As a result, Libra risings almost pathologically seek approval and acceptance to compensate for what the parents deprived them of.

[3] Sagittarius risings likely have parents who expect the child to be pliant, obedient, and self-sacrificing. The parents may ask the child to give, give, and give, until there’s nothing left. The parents themselves may be weak, selfish, and delusional, pretending to be martyrs while taking advantage of their own children. The parents might act helpless as a manipulation  tactic. As a defense, the Sagittarius detaches themselves from needy people and (”selfishly”) puts themselves first, to compensate for years of being forced to put themselves last. 

The human personality is almost entirely a cluster of defense mechanisms to cope with different types pain and toxic people.  Once you know the traits each rising sign expresses, and the sign on the 4th house cusp, it is easy to trace the behavior to the roots.
