Aura/Energy Color Meanings

This list is based off of resources I have found as well as my personal experiences.

As with all correspondences, this is a place to start from, not the end-all be-all of color meanings.

This list generally assumes that brighter colors are healthier and more positive, while duller colors are negative and less positive. Use your intuition to determine the true role a color plays.

Interpreting Colors

OVERLAYS If one color is covering another, this can indicate outer appearance, how others perceive them, or a blockage that is preventing the inner color from shining.

COMBINATIONS If one color is mixed with another in stripes, lines, or spots, the person presents both qualities in equal or similar measure.

MIXING If two or more colors appear to blend together, this can indicate strong balance and intermingling of personal energies.

SOLID If a person primarily presents only one color with no overlays, they are honestly projecting their inner energies.

“… it’s called Vices & Virtues, and in one way or the other, at least one to 10 virtues or vices are represented in every song… [it’s] little minor things I didn’t know were vices or virtues, until we looked them up. I was like, ‘I don’t know what altruism means, so I’ll look that up.’ Things like logic, pride, vanity — it can go either way. So it was kind of interesting to read about that.”

Why this photo is so important

Almost 90,000 likes, this is a record! (when I finish the post maybe it will be more) … but why this picture and not the others? Why am I so proud of this photo? The reasons are so many! In this photo Sam is alone, in this photo there is Sam, not Jamie, nothing connected with Outlander, not an event with a beautiful Armani dress. Only Sam, in all his beauty, with his blond hair, in the midst of nature. SAM HEUGHAN

Why a post on this photo?
Because the result of this photo is important.
Sam is not Zac Efron (sorry Zac, I’m sure you’re a nice guy), this is not a physical pumped out of the gym, this is not vanity. This is pride for the results! This is a body built on hard work, this is a body built with sweat. This is a body with years of sports behind. 

This is sacrifice, this is running, this is cycling. This is climbing the mountains, this is muay thai, this is boxing, this is crossfit. This is healthy eating, determination, strength. This is an example for all people who believe in him and in his My Peak Challenge. Not a charity, but a lifestyle. Thank you Sam, you are a person to admire! And all the love you received is all your merit.

A/N: Guess who’s done her finalssssss :D

And look! Explanations and plot! Oh a merry christmas it is indeed. You mean it hasn’t been a year since I updated, cus it sure as hell feels like it lmaoo. Let me know what you guys think, and keep an eye out for like the twenty other things I working on <3

Natsu Dragneel is just an ordinary 21 year old trying to get by on his craft’s business, keep his landlady off his ass, and grow his friendship with his new weird neighbour Lucy. Without revealing that he’s a witch. Or his cat can fly and talk. So maybe Natsu isn’t that normal. Things take a serious left turn for him when people from his past start showing up, and he and Lucy as well as some new -and old- friends travel across Fiore trying to find some answers. But the question is, will they be happy with what they find?

Natsu groaned loudly, falling back onto his couch and leaning his head on the top of the backrest. He pinched the bridge of his nose, closing his eyes. “Well go on and tell her ‘bout your stupid coven.” He grumbled.

“It’s a family,” Erza snapped. Natsu kept his eyes closed as he tried to self heal his migraine away.

He heard the table groan as Erza sat on it. If she broke his fucking table he would make her pay for a new one. Even if she would insist on doing it anyway, something irritating about honor probably. Or maybe just because she was one of his closest friends.

Gods, Natsu just wanted to go the fuck back to sleep.

“Fairy Tail is my coven. It’s where witches and other magical beings gather to find work and a community, a place we call home and can be ourselves. There are many covens throughout Fiore, and the world.” Erza explained, voice full of authority but gentle.

“Okay. So how do people know which coven is for them?” Lucy asked.

“People who want the same things, or have similar values. Mermaid Heel offers a safe place for women, and emphasizes strength of the soul. Blue Pegasus specializes in charms and vanity. Fairy Tail prides itself on it’s respect and approach to integrate magic in small ways into the regular world. Natsu, for example, would fit in perfectly.” Natsu groaned loudly at Erza’s pointed statement, falling to the side so he laid his head on Lucy’s lap.

“For the last time I ain’t joining any coven!”

“Why don’t you like covens, Natsu?” Lucy asked softly, placing her mug on the table beside Erza and carding her fingers through his hair. “They sound nice.”

“‘Cus Erza’s leavin’ out the bit where they’re fuckin’ cults.”

“They are not-”

“Don’t pull that shit, Erza. Not after what just happened in Lucy’s apartment.” Natsu snapped, opening his eyes and holding her gaze. Erza looked away first, knuckles white where she clasped her hands in her lap. “They demand blind loyalty, brainwash you into whatever doctrine they want. They recruit young. I’ve seen it. Not all of them are bad, I know, but enough are.”

Natsu closed his eyes as he thought back to some of the members of Zeref’s coven. No, he had seen enough to know that covens were bad. And Igneel didn’t use covens, so Natsu knew his point was validated. Igneel was never wrong.

“We call those dark covens.” Erza said faintly.

“Yeah, and a dark coven’s what kidnapped Lucy when she was sixteen.” Natsu snapped back.

“Fairy Tail’s not like them Natsu. You know that.” Natsu sighed and closed his eyes at her stern voice, though there was a hint of understanding hidden faintly underneath. Erza could think whatever she wanted, deny the obvious truth to herself. Lucy had already said she wasn’t going anywhere without Natsu, so that was that. Even though Natsu had relented to Erza and Happy, there was no way Lucy would want anything to do with the type of organization that had kidnapped her. They weren’t going to Fairy Tail.

“I think we should go to Fairy Tail.”

Natsu’s eyes flew open as he jerked upwards. He couldn’t believe it. He had to have misheard. “What?” He said, cringing at the sharpness and volume of his question when Lucy flinched. “Luce?” Natsu asked again, voice softer as he tried to force a small smile, unsure as he looked her over.

“I’ve known Erza for years, Natsu. I trust her.” Lucy said just as softly. She took one of his hands between both her own, grip tightening when he instinctively jerked back. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing. They were supposed to be a team.

“Cana is also a member of Fairy Tail, and her father.” Erza added, looking away at Natsu’s warning glare.

“Natsu. They’re my family. They’ve been there for me at my worst moments. I trust them. Don’t you trust me?” Lucy asked. Her eyes held hope that was tinged desperate enough to break Natsu’s heart. “Besides, I’ll have you to protect me. My big, bad, scary dragon.” Natsu couldn’t help the wry grin he felt pull at the corner of his mouth. She sounded just as afraid as he felt, and Lucy was right. He could protect her, from most covens anyway.

“I’ll always protect ya, Weirdo.” Natsu said, knocking his forehead into hers gently, fingers tangling in her hair as he cupped the back of her head.

“I’ll protect you too, Lucy.” Happy said, crawling from his perch on the arm of the couch and slinking between Natsu and Lucy’s laps. His eyes were serious, bright and sincere.

“I know you will Happy.” She cooed, rubbing one ear fondly between her thumb and finger. Happy purred at the motion, rubbing his head more into her hand.

“We’ll go,” Natsu said, turning to face Erza. “But if anyone even tries and hands us a pamphlet I am draggin’ Lucy away and spittin’ fire at anyone that tries to follow.”
