What makes us tick? What gets us all fired up? What makes us angry, and how do we express that anger? What do we really desire, and how do we go about getting it? The sign position of Mars reveals much about our basic animal nature—our aggressive instincts, our sexuality, and our drive.
aggressive, impulsive, but don’t live in the past, and are not given to holding grudges or feeling resentful
listen to their instincts, make fast decisions
irritated by indirectness
generally calm and easygoing people, but powerful tempers when they’re overly provoked
value strength and stability, they are driven by security and an especial fondness for personal possessions
slow to arousal, but theirs is an earthy and powerful sensuality
scattered and unfocused, easily bored
angry words—some of the most incisive and sarcastic ones— can fly around with the more energetic natives, draw on their sharp wit to win arguments
often express energy through musical instruments and the like—even video games
the most passive-aggressive position, seem to resist change and to shy away from direct confrontations
at their best, they turn others on with a protective, almost therapeutic way about them
have defensive reactions and bursts of emotional agitation when feeling offended
vital position, passions run high, and so does desire
enjoy the pleasures of risk-taking
act with authority and power, and their personal magnetism generally endows them with the ability to get what they want
have a knack for handling a wide variety of tasks at once, and a tendency to take on perhaps too much at the same time, which makes them doubt their abilities. it’s hard for them to deal with it and they might turn into complaining, over-critical nags
earthy and sometimes nervous sexuality, shy but open to experimentation
perfectionists at the heart, though they will be the first to deny it
overly indecisive, they feel the need to weigh all of the alternatives before taking action
they always play innocent when they are challenged, and can generally charm the birds out of the trees to win your favour
never mean but aggression has to go somewhere, so this often results sneaky behaviour and subterfuge
challenge themselves to do the impossible keeping their cool and their equilibrium on the surface
attracted to taboos and feel a certain kind of pleasure resisting their fantasies. also a black-or-white philosophy of life
their sexual appeal is strong enough that they generally do get what they want
when they get angry, they feel like running not knowing how to deal with their aggression, this is where their restless and adventurous nature comes in
playful and fun-loving, they love friendly debates, although they can go to extremes, very passionate about what they believe in
need to feel like they have space, they’re the ones who will run away when things get too serious or dull
a little hard on themselves, and sometimes others, though their self-control is strong when it comes to expressing anger, drive, energy, and sexuality
detests waste of any kind, which makes them hard to let go of things
self-indulgent by nature, disciplined, realistic, possesses the ability to plan for the future —something that many other signs have difficulties doing
a rather original view of the world, the tried-and-true methods of getting things done are far too boring
proud of their willpower and independence they are quite difficult to settle down
their madness isn’t easy to discover. Creative about getting what they want, you won’t always know you’re being dominated
an unusually passive placement, they don’t appear like they are capable of harming a fly
need a creative outlet that allowing them to express their desires of the moment, their compassion —and even their anger —freely and imaginatively
prone to feelings of guilt about their anger, and difficulties with asserting themselves
Tumblr, why did you hide this show from me? It wasn’t on my dash, I didn’t see it in the tags, I can’t even remember how it ended up on my radar. I just wish I hadn’t waited so long to binge watch this AMAZING show.
I should probably mention a trigger warning for strong rape themes. The entire show, actually. That’s the premise (but not in an icky way, it’s about taking back power when the system refuses to).
All I can think is that this show is a Marshmallow’s dream. Think Veronica Mars meets the fic, “The Phenomenal Pixie”, by TheLastGoodGoldfish.
It’s obvious from the first episode that it was strongly influenced by VM. Imagine if Veronica and Mac were combined into a single character (or if Mac was infused with Veronica’s prickliness, moral code, and lack of boundaries).
Now imagine Maconica and Parker Lee teamed up as masked vigilantes to hunt down campus rapists who got away with it.
Yeah, it’s like that.
I should mention, no super powers, just girls kicking asses. Girls supporting girls. Girls getting justice for other girls.
Actually, this plotline would have made a MUCH better VM S3 than the one we got.
i had one song on repeat the entire time i walked around those streets you used to know but baby, so much has changed;
old buildings we loved are gone, the shops we used to visit are ghosts now, brick-and-mortar memories, nothing more;
new skyscrapers have been built, they tower over the fire hydrants and manholes and sidewalks and everything, the potted plants and fenced-off little trees and fountains;
i wanted to keep walking, to walk all night and meet the sunrise with tired red eyes but a newfound smile but something pulled me back, pulled me back home;
i found a taxi in all that city mess and rode home – it took about an hour to come home, after a relatively uneventful ride and a lobby and some stairs, but i made it back;
i made it back to a home stained with regret and uncertainty, a home colder and lonelier now that you weren’t there – maybe you were a part of my heart, maybe not, who knows?
but i know for a fact that you leaving wasn’t fireworks or mountains falling back into place, it was every manhole opening under my feet, every fire hydrant going off, it was the sky falling in blocks upon my head;
i’ll never see you again – i mean, maybe in a crowd somewhere on the other side of this planet, or maybe on mars when we get there, or on pluto, tending your ice garden – but for now i have to live with your constant ghost floating over my shoulders
but you know what? i’ll be okay. i’ve seen catastrophies way worse than the one you put me through. i’ll bathe in salt, light some candles, and expel your specter from my home. i’ll be able to start again
Marceline: We really are getting a lot better… it was nice having a day off together…
Rylan: It really was… I feel like I never get to see you… We are always so busy with the babies. I arranged for your sister to watch the kids tonight, you know Jynx is so fast… and they are already in bed…
Venus is all about romance. She shows our affectionate side, what we like and how we approach intimacy. She knows how to find our agape. Mars is our planet that takes action - he is the catalyst to us getting what we want.
No matter what the sign, if Venus and Mars fall in the same sign or come close to each other, there is a high level of attraction to the opposite sex. This type of dynamic person relates well with others and will magnetically attract them. It’s quite an alluring mix of planetary energy.
Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) -
Fire signs like to heat things up physically and can be direct about what they want. They also like to keep things entertaining. An important facet to these signs, however, is that they aren’t looking to get too emotionally close. There’s a bit of the impersonal distance with the fire signs. Laughter is another key aspect that can get these signs going—they simply love to laugh.
Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) -
These types have a down to earth attitude about love and intimate matters. They can be quite duty bound. Emotions don’t play a big part in their operation - it’s all about efficiency. However, they can be instinctively in touch with other people’s physical needs. Sensuality is present but a key to this element is their control. They are always fully grounded, just like their element, Earth.
Air (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) -
Forget touchy and feely when it comes to the air signs. They aren’t looking for physical closeness or dramatic displays of affection. What these types crave is talking and communication. In order to intimately connect with the air signs we have to be willing to talk. Communication invigorates them and makes them feel alive. If you aren’t communicating with these signs, you’re slowly snuffing out their intimate energy.
Water (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) -
This the type of person who wants the other person to initiate things. They want someone else to be the “doer.” Intimacy is connected through emotions and security. They feel things intensely. This is the element that is also sensitive to other people’s feelings (given their extremely high level of intuition) and can literally feel another’s energy. This includes their partner’s emotional needs. They can also provide a calming release of tension in intimate situations.
Another way to celebrate the Veronica Mars anniversary is to promote the VMars franchise!
Spread the words, tell the fans about the books (because there are so many fans who never heard about the official books), have a rewatch every week with new fans, donate the DVDs and books to your local library, tell the franchise to your friends and families, buy the merchandise, blog about the show…. Promote in any way so we can get MORE VERONICA MARS!
No, fuck you, Bill Maher. The desire to get to Mars isn’t so we can abandon Earth.
Bill Maher, you have half-assed musings on planetary exploration and think you’ve come to some conclusion no one else has? Take your wrecking ball of an idea, reel it in on your fishing line of ignorance and shut the fuck up.
The longer people think space exploration is done at the expense of human progress, the longer humanity will suffer from the fear of science you claim to hate.
And while you’re bothering to stoop from your perch and inform experts on their scientific ventures, I’ll venture into yours: this isn’t funny, you’re not funny, back off the scientific community.
