to be clear, it was sunset at sunrise

A spell to gain control

A simple spell to help you gain control over your emotions or actions.

Best done at sunrise, noon, or sunset. You will need a clean, clear space and an small item of your choosing. 

Begin by cleansing yourself. Take a shower and imagine everything you would like to release being washed off (or use a cloth and water). If possible, untangle your hair, change into fresh clothes and take care of anything else that is bothering you. Use incense smoke if desired. 

Sit, and ground yourself. Hold the item in your hands and envision the ways you would like to change and gain control pouring into that item, filling it up. You are welcome to speak them, or write them down if that aids you. 

Carry that item with you and use it’s energy when needed. This spell can be used to recharge the item if needed. 

Close off the spell however you see fit. Be it a few words, a releasing of energies, some form of cleansing again, whatever works for you.

/ GRATITUDE 1 / 

I am grateful to live in such a beautiful country. I always find myself taking South Australia for granted, thinking it’s boring and there’s nothing here for me. But just getting in my car and driving for that extra hour I discovered such an incredibly beautiful place down south. Waking up before the sun, I sat on the top of those stairs and waited until the sun and earth did its thing and rotated a little, and that’s where my day began. I am so lucky to be able to sit and unwind, breathing in the salty sea air and taking in the serenity.

If you have been feeling uninspired and down in the dumps about life, seriously just take the time out to do something. Wake up at 5am, get in the car or jump on the bus, or just walk outside your front door. Be grateful and appreciative for this amazing world that we live on, it will open up a whole new realm of consciousness and awareness and leave your mind feeling clear and refreshed. 

The time of day that each sign represents!

Aries: The colourful sky that the sun paints with its rays as it settles down, disappearing behind the other side of the tired earth (sunset). This represents their happy personality and mesmerizing beauty.

Taurus: Sunrise, which can either be really amazing or make one upset (wants to sleep obvs). It showcases their personality. They can be the happiest person alive but when they’re upset, you’d want to steer clear of them.

Gemini: Late morning, around the same time that they usually sleep in late until. It can be seen in two very accurate perspectives. They feeling really lazy or they’ve had an eventful night and now needs LOTS of rest.

Cancer: Portrayed as late evening (7-8pm) when the world is peaceful, supper is being made (NB lots of salt added) and it’s prime time for scrolling to find memes or literally making a cocoon in bed and sleeping.

Leo: They represent 3am because this is when anything is possible in your mind. This represents that their personality can either be as dark as the night will be or as as bright as the sun that will rise in a few hours.    

Virgo: 11:11 (am or pm) because they’re full of happiness and opportunities! Always able to count on them to make you feel better or offer some friendly advice. Literally the only wish you need.

Libra: Early afternoon, literally the peak of everyday when the sun is almost as blinding as their dazzling smile. Anything that happens at this time can either make or break your day, just like their presence.  

Scorpio: Midnight, when you’re all alone with your thoughts. Represents their love for being alone and enjoying some “me time” while absorbing the quietness.

Sagittarius: 10pm, the moment you remember the homework you should’ve done. In other words, represents their loving yet forgetful soul. No matter how tough it gets they always persevere and are determined to finish what needs to be done.

Capricorn: The early early morning before the sun rises when most of the world still sleeps in darkness while the other half buzzes with the on goings of people. This represents their exciting and busy life while still having another side of them that not many people know about.

Aquarius: Late afternoon, that time after lunch when you’ve just stuffed yourself with like five helpings of dessert and you can’t move anymore but you still want to get up to go get more but it’s too far so you just kinda lie around. Yeah that’s basically it. Food fanatic forever (check that alliteration).

Pisces: Time ??? what’s that ??? who has time for anything when staying in bed and exploring the dark inter-web is an important thing ???

Spell Jar Basics: Creating and Tailor-Making Your Own Spell Bottles & Jars

(Hello again, everyone! I’m back after a long hiatus - it feels good to be witching again!)

Spell jars are a great and easily modifiable way to do “slow-cooker” magic-stuff that doesn’t require a lot of active participation time, but the combined result is just as - if not more-potent.


THE COMPONENTS: THE JAR

You’ll need a jar, first of all - the size and shape of which should correspond to your intent, ideally. For smaller,”single-burner” spells, you might want a small, corked bottle you can balance a spell candle on. If you were to make a witches’ bottle for protection, you’d want something a little bigger, to hold all the ingredients, and probably something in an amber or other more opaque tone, so you can’t see inside.

Ideally, your jar or bottle would have a lid, for various spell-mechanics purposes-using the jar as a sealant, keeping the contents together while you shake it, and so on.

FILLING THE JAR

Next, you’ll need the components for the “spell” part. Assemble harmonious ingredients that are correspondent to your intent - for instance, if I were to assemble a spell bottle for balance, I’d try to grab some herbs and reagents correspondent to my intent (coriander, sea salt, and so forth), that are mostly yellow (the color I correspond with balance), and, perhaps, keep it down to 5 ingredients, which is the number I correspond with balance. 

Fill the jar or bottle with these ingredients-this is you doing the prep work for your spell! If you intend to shake the contents to reactivate them every so often, for instance, you’d want to leave a bit of room at the top.

You might want to add some extra oomph to your jar for more heavy-duty spells, like tying correspondent ribbon around the jar, or inscribing a sigil or planetary symbol on it.

CASTING THE SPELL

Now that your spell preparations are complete, you’ll need to pick a good time to perform your spell, and choose a way to “activate” it - that is, a spell mechanic to set your intent in motion and do the actual “casting”.

For timing, you’ll want to pick something that,again, corresponds with your intent: You can use the waxing and waning tides of the moon to draw or remove something from your life, use sunsets and sunrises for manifestation and banishment, cast at high noon for an elemental fire influence, or on a clear, dark night for an honorary jar for Nyx - do a little research and listen to your gut!

As for the casting, you have a number of ways to go about it. Here are a couple of popular methods you can pick, mix, and match (but remember, you can always invent a more appropriate method for your own spell!):

Sealing with a Candle: An effective way to complete and cast your spell, with the added bonus of sealing in the contents of your jar for permanent magick. Choose the color of your candle according to your intent, inscribe it with a rune or sigil, anoint it with oil, or/and customize it in any way you see fit to correspond it with your intent and with the contents of the jar. Burn the whole candle at once to cast a spell in one go, or light the candle a little bit every night during the waxing or waning moon to draw or rid, respectively.

Burying the Jar: For spells involving the earth, staking a claim on your own property, magic you don’t want to reverse, or jars honoring cthonic spirits, bury your jar in the dirt, whether it’s in your yard or in a container.

Reversible Spells: Leave the jar’s lid or cork unsealed by wax, but firmly pressed on, perhaps with a string or ribbon to seal the magic in instead. If you ever have need to reverse the spell, you can open up the jar, safely unenchant and dispose of its contents, and clean out the jar with salt and water for later.

Recastable Spells: Leave a generous portion of room in your jar or bottle before sealing, and give it a vigorous shake when you want to re-cast.

Now go forth, and cast!


If you do make any spell jars, I totally want to see them! :>

look up every now and then. look at the sky when it’s clear and cloudless. look up when there is no blue, just a sea of grey. look up when the sky is angry and rumbling. look up when the sun is saying good morning and as it is whispering goodnight. learn to love the sky for everything it is because it is a love that will never let you down.

The pinkish band in this picture of Mono Lake, California, can be observed shortly after sunset or shortly before sunrise when the sky is clear, at this time Venus can be found close to the horizon and hence the band is called “The Belt of Venus”.

It appears as a pinkish glow that extends roughly 10°–20° above the horizon on the eastern side of the night sky- opposite the setting Sun. The pink colour is attributed to the backscattering of Sunlight. It is quite common for The Belt of Venus to be separated from the horizon by a dark layer; this is in fact the Earth’s shadow and a sure sign of the onset of night. After a few minutes, this band will grow and darken swallowing up the day, offering us a glimpse at the greater universe that it is revealed with the arrival of night.

The Belt of Venus doesn’t get as much awe as it warrants; this is probably because it is competing with Sunrise or Sunset for attention. Nevertheless, it is a subtle yet beautiful phenomenon to be observed.

They misunderstood his meaning once again.

The Winchesters had a habit of doing that.

It’s not that they were wrong. Because he had finally accepted that, while they were not his kin, they were his family.

For whom he had - for whom he would - for whom he will always lay down his life.

Because in forty five sunrises and sunsets void of Sam and Dean, it became clear to Castiel that nothing in his world mattered as much as the Winchesters.

But that declaration - it didn’t belong to them. It belonged to him.

To Dean.

All those times Castiel had thrown himself in harm’s way, all those times he’d faced Death for no reason other than to buy the Righteous Man a few precious seconds - in his whole time spent alongside the two hunters, he’d never really admitted to his motives. 

Never ventured to say the three words with which Dean’s kind were so enamored. The sentiment - it was difficult for the angel to make sense of. In some eight and a half years, Castiel had never named the profound bond for what it was.

But this time, through gritted teeth and lacerated lips, as excruciating pain gnawed at his gut, as he felt the life leak right out of him, this time, Castiel found the strength to own the elusive phrase.

I love you.

Maybe it’s the last vestige of his angelic nature.

Maybe it’s the clarity that comes with being so close to death.

Maybe it’s nothing more than the connection between two souls focused solely on the other.

But in the wake of those words, Castiel can see - hear - feel every thought passing through Dean Winchester’s mind.

An exercise in doubting it could possibly be true.

Because Dean surveys through all the reasons he’s sure he must be unlovable.

Every bottle of whiskey in which he’d drowned his sorrows - every broken chair he’d made a victim of his rage.

Every lie he’d ever told - every promise he’d ever broken.

Every time he’d dared to look into the mirror and couldn’t stomach the man he’d seen looking back at him.

The face of every person he’s gotten killed.

Every monster he hasn’t managed to slay. Every mistake he’s made.

Because the words have barely made their way out of Castiel’s punctured lungs when Dean’s giving him every but he can come up with.

It is only a few seconds but it is not a short list. He’s had years of practice convincing himself he’s broken beyond repair.

And so with what he believes could be his last breath, Castiel offers a clarification.

I love all of you.

All of you, Dean.

Every single shard I stitched back together after I pulled you from the depths of Hell.

Every aspect of your being.

Every precious part.

All of you.

Dean had a habit of misunderstanding Castiel.

But in that moment, in the small glance the two share, his meaning - its abundant and profound truth - is clear.

I had been trying to timelapse the milky way for a week. Everyday I went out, set up, and either fog popped up or to much cloud cover spoiled the evening squashing any attempts. On this day, the forecast called for clear skies until midnight, then partly cloudy until 4am. I jumped at the opportunity. The skies never really cleared up though, just small pockets of windows. This was my first attempt at a full holy grail timelapse from sunset to sunrise, with the milky way making it’s appearance in the middle. I ran out of juice with two batteries, and had to make a ninja battery change at 4:30am, but other than that, I only had a few hiccups during the ramping. I did collect quite a few bug and spider bites though, and I somehow managed to catch every new spider web in the face on the way out. lol Typical Ozarks. This was shot from what’s called the Eagle’s Nest.

You and Dash Wilder weren’t an ‘item’, you two were…well fuck buddies. Both of you couldn’t ever keep your hands off each other. When you two were back in NXT, you guys made an agreement. Sex, rough, amazing sex, with no strings attached. It was so mindblowing the first time that you guys had sex, it was all night. To be clear, it was literally sunset to sunrise. There was barely a break, only two fifteen minute breaks that was just you two laying in bed and watching TV.

After then, you two would disappear after almost every PPV, finding a little room in the back of the building. Dash was a rough man that will slap your ass until it’s raw if you forgot to call him daddy. So seeing him on Raw made you rather hot and bothered.

He hadn’t told you that he was coming up and you weren’t able to see him on Saturday because you had meetings and all that stuff before wrestling in your first Wrestlemania. When you saw him, you smiled widely and went over to talk to him. He was standing with Scott over in a little hallway off to the side of the main flow of  people.

His eyes swept you up and down, hungry and needy eyes. You shuddered and his eyes locked with yours again. His lips curled into a smile, taking a step closer. Scott rolled his eyes, said congrats, and left, knowing all too well what was going to happen. Dash reached out and ran a thick finger over your new Women’s Championship belt on your shoulder. “Looks nice on you,” he said, his southern accent dripping with lust.

You smiled. Taking the belt off your shoulder, you laid it over your waist and turned around. “Button is up, please?” His fingertips danced over the bare skin of your back and he pressed himself against you. He smelled amazing, like always, and his breath fanned across your growing hot skin. With a little growl, he kissed your neck, his beard scraping against the sensitive skin.

dan is a sunset. he is intense and bright, signaling the end of an adventure. his passing brings a range of colors that can be ephemeral and surprising but always thoughtful.

Crystal clear night sky above Mauna kea Observatory, on the Big Island of Hawaii. One of the world’s best spots for astronomical observations, it is also the most sacred land for the native nation. At 4205m (13800ft) it is the highest point on the entire Pacific Ocean. In fact the dormant volcano is 10,200 meters tall when measured from base (in the ocean) to peak! While the peak is a popular destination for tourists sunrise to sunset, it is closed to visitors at night due to safety (high altitude hazards) and the disturbance of car lights on the telescopes. The stargazing fans and astro-tourists enjoy the night from the more temperate altitude of the visitor center at 3000m (9000ft). In fact we see more stars from this level compared to the peak due to increased oxygen level! In this #timelapse the Milky Way’s galactic core in Sagittarius sets above one of the twin Keck telescopes (each with a 10m mirror), operating a strong yellow laser for its adaptive optics system which removes the atmospheric turbulence from the image. On the right is the 8-meter Japanese Subaru telescope. In the second half of the video the moon rises in the sky. Follow me @babaktafreshi for more of the world’s starry nights. 

More Glacier headcanons!!

- Cole’s methods of flirting: working out and getting sweaty around Zane (oh he notices when Zane’s watching him, he just doesn’t say anything), complimenting him on his cooking, asking him to watch his newest (sexy) dance choreographies

- Zane doesn’t really flirt but he’ll smile a lot and be more tactile around Cole, i.e. resting a hand on his shoulder, tugging on his sleeve to get his attention, etc.

- Zane never expected this to happen but one time during training Cole puts his hair up in a mini ponytail/man-bun and Zane just goes “?!?!?!?!?!?” and has a small power outage because he apparently really likes that and Pixal’s like, “Are you serious he just has his hair up what is wrong with you”

- even better: Cole eventually develops the habit of going shirtless during training, and Zane desperately tries not to interact with Cole when this happens (because muscles and man-buns ya know) but Cole goes, “You’re my sparring buddy!” and Zane has no real excuses, but HE OVERHEATS IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAINING BECAUSE ‘ABS SHOULDERS ABS BICEPS ABS MAN-BUN?!?!?!?’ and has to excuse himself to go cool off what a dork

- Kai sees this happen, laughs his ass off, and convinces Cole to keep doing whatever he’s doing for whenever the team trains, so Zane never does catch a break the poor thing

- looking from the other side though: Zane’s best physical feature that absolutely destroys Cole is his smile. Whenever Zane smiles - whether it be a wide happy grin or a soft shy turn of the lips - Cole just melts into the ground because 'Oh my gosh he’s so adorable and charming and sweet?!?!?!’; HOWEVER, if Zane smirks - his sharp eyes going half-lidded and smoldering, lips curving in a teasing half-smile - nothing can help Cole and he has to quickly evacuate the area unless he wants to collapse shaking in front of everyone what a champ

- Pixal notices how Cole reacts to Zane’s smiles and points this out; Zane learns how to immediately get Cole hot under the collar by combining a smirk with a quick wink in the middle of battle and BAM! Cole’s flustered and red in the face, and Zane and Pixal mentally high-five each other

- on a more innocent note: Cole and Zane are genuinely fond of each other and spend a lot of time in shared company, talking or playing chess or simply sitting in comfortable silence. They don’t feel the need to be anything more or anything different than who they are when they are around each other, and this provides a very powerful sense of stability and peace for them

- they like to watch the sunrise and sunset together; Cole prefers the sunset (cool breeze, heralding night’s rest, infinity of stars) and Zane the sunrise (warmth, steadiness of life, new beginnings), but they always watch both together

- how they get together: between sunset and sunrise, under the stars, talking as they slowly recover from the adrenaline of a rough battle. Conversation flows easily, their huffs of laughter low and warm. Their hands find each other, followed by their eyes, and they just… know. Simple as that. It’s not a big grand event, there’s no fireworks or sudden revelations or anything like that

- it’s slow and tender, inevitable yet welcomed and embraced because “yes, this is how it has been all along, hasn’t it?”

- it’s as unshakable and solid as the earth, as clear and transparent as ice, and as gentle as snowflakes drifting down to the ground
