Hi all! Sorry I’ve been gone for awhile D: it’s been spring break and I haven’t really had work, and I needed some time off from responsibility. Here’s my spread from right before spring break, so you can see some college related stuff on there. I’ve gotten some asks about where I’m headed for university…but I think I’m going to keep that a secret for now. I think other studyblrs I’m following aren’t telling their followers where they’re going, and it’s probably better for my privacy and all that. Hope you understand! <3 Have a great week~
Local spirits are the spirits that are constantly around us, in the forests, on the beaches, in schools, in homes, etc. They can be ghosts, mythological creatures, entities never mentioned in lore before and more. Their personalities and friendliness towards humans can vary quite a bit, especially depending on where you live. Think of them as your spirit neighbors. Some might remain as such for the entire time that you know them, others might become your companions or maybe even your rivals! The important thing is that you respectfully interact with them and be aware of their boundaries.
There’s two main ways that I’ve found to make contact with local spirits: call them to you or go outside and meet them in the places they live. Calling them to you is actually kind of a similar concept to conjuring except that you are only calling to the spirits that live in your area and that there’s no guarantee that they’ll show up. Going out is like a scientist going on a field study for an organism that they’re interested in: might find them, might not, and if it’s spirits we’re talking about then might find but they don’t want to be interacted with.
That’s the biggest thing to remember when working with local spirits, that not all spirits are interested in interacting with humans. In fact, many spirits couldn’t care less about humans or even actively have ways to prevent humans from meeting them. You should respect spirits that don’t want to be worked with. If you really want to work with a particular group then you could try negotiating with them or slowly building up a relationship with them in order to see if they will eventually be willing. Just don’t force any spirit to interact or speak with you, that will end badly for you every time.
Spirit work isn’t always the safest thing and there’s many ways that you can be harmed. The most important thing to have is a protective circle. It will protect you from many things and can actually be very versatile. Obviously this is hard to make when going out and meeting spirits so we’ll separate the safety procedures for each technique.
Going Out to Meet the Spirits
When going out not only is it harder to bring and set up materials, you’re also in public a lot of the time which limits what you can do. That is why personal warding is important. Personal warding can take the form of energy shields, protective amulets, etc. These are things that should be prepared before going out with the intent of meeting spirits so that they are ready in case you do get attacked.
Calling the Spirits
Calling the spirits comes with the risk of inviting unknown entities into your home. That is why it is important to have wards and a protective circle. The circle will protect you if they try to attack you during the meeting while the wards will prevent them from getting back in after being banished. Generic wards are basic spirit work stuff so I’m not going to go into them here.
A circle, however, can be made in many different ways. The most important thing to keep in mind is that it has protective elements that you feel are helpful to you, not what some list on the internet says. You could take from traditional circles and use them as a template for creating your own or you can completely make a new style of circle. The possibilities are endless! Some things you might want to include are protective stones, the names of deities you work with, protective words or sigils, candles, etc. Any physical item you use should have a designated spot for it. Your orientation of the elements of the circle is also important, or well it can be if you ascribe that importance! Perhaps you use the four elements to protect you in your circle and you associate them with a particular direction for example.
When you decide on what the circle should look like, practice making and using it! You can draw it out on an old sheet so that you don’t have to keep remaking it, you can set out physical items in the shape of a circle or you can create it with energy if you’re good at that. However you make it, it’s important to get used to being in it and the energy that goes into “activating” it. Activating it usually involves calling upon whatever makes up the circle to protect you. Sticking with the element example, you’d activate is by calling for Fire, Water, Earth, and Air to protect you. Once you are done with the circle, you must close it. This usually means allowing whatever you called upon to depart but in the reverse order from before. Try it out, play around with it, find or create whatever procedure that is comfortable to you.
When speaking with spirits, do not let them in no matter how much they try to persuade you. Also, do not leave the circle until you are sure that they are gone. That’s why you should keep any banishing tools and the like on hand so you don’t have to run and fetch them. If you don’t follow both of those rules then what’s the point of making the circle?
[There’s many different ways to use a circle, this is just a generic explanation of it].
Calling the Spirits to You
This process includes creating a call of energy and sending it out into the “energy network” of your local area. Spirits in the area can hear this call and choose whether or not to answer it and show up.
Tools needed: An offering for the spirit that you are calling, any banishing tools, any physical items that make up your circle, a wand if you need/use one, and any communication tools if you need them.
Making the Call: Cast your circle, set your offering outside of it and get into a clear state of mind where you can access your energy. Say the call, either out loud or in your head, doesn’t matter. It can be anything but basically along the lines of “I call to any [spirit name] that would be interested in speaking with me for [an interview]. In return, I have an offering of [the offering]”. You can call them for any reason but like I’ve mentioned before, they’re not obligated to come. As you say the call, form the energy of your words into a ball of energy in front of you. This is where you can use your wand to help channel the energy easier. Visualization also helps here. Once it is formed and stable, send it out in all directions into the environment. I usually just shoot a quick burst of energy at it to give it the momentum to move fast but you can flick your wrist/wand or do whatever it is you normally do to send energy out.
Even after you finish saying the call, you can feed more energy into the energy ball if you want the call to be “louder” and travel farther. This can be dangerous though because since the call is made from your energy, it is connected to you and that’s how the spirits who answer your call can find you. When the call reaches the limits of its strength it disappears and all links to you are gone. However, the stronger you make it, the longer it is out in the environment and the more likely unexpected spirits can trace you. So basically, don’t make the call too powerful.
Meeting the Spirit: If the call isn’t made too strong (aka the amount of energy that the sample call above makes) then at most, it should take 10 minutes for the call’s energy to die out (usually not actually that long but it’s good to be safe). After you finish speaking with the spirit, thank them for coming and allow them to leave. Make sure that they are actually gone before closing your circle. If a spirit doesn’t appear within that time you can either resend the call or close your circle and try again later.
Notes: Creating the call doesn’t guarantee that a spirit will show up. It also doesn’t mean that the spirit who shows up is the spirit that you called to. I mean in the four years that I’ve been using this technique, I’ve never had the “wrong” spirit show up but I find it very hard to believe that it’s not possible. Both of these are reasons why it’s important to have the basic techniques for being able to sense a spirit’s presence and determine their identity.
Going Out and Meeting Spirits
This process is much more straightforward. You essentially go out to places in your area like beaches, parks, schools, etc., see if you can sense any spirits, and then see if any are interested in talking with you.
Tools needed: Any protective amulets or items that you have and an offering for any spirits you may come across
I don’t have much explanation for this because it ain’t much more complex than that. If you don’t know who you’re going to meet, generic offerings to bring include water, alcohol, bread, rice, tobacco, etc. If you know of an offering that the spirits where you’re headed would prefer then bring that. No matter what you bring do not leave anything that will pollute the environment. Any food offerings you bring should be in a container and then properly disposed of, not thrown on the ground for example.
Set out the offering and ask if anyone wants it. You can also respectfully approach anyone you see and ask if they would want it. If they decline your offer, then don’t press them. Just give them a “okay, sorry for bothering you” and leave. Be respectful when interacting with them, you are on their territory after all.
Also be smart about who you approach. If someone’s energy makes you feel uncomfortable or they’re a species or have an affiliation with a group that is known to be hostile, then be aware that you may need to defend yourself if you choose to approach them and things go sour. Of course not all bad-feeling spirits are actually bad, not all good-feeling spirits are actually good, and first impressions can be misleading. Just trust your intuition and be prepared for the worst in case it happens.
What to Do if You Are in Danger
It’ll happen. Not all spirits are friendly and many might look at you as prey or something to mess with. The most important thing to do is stay calm. When a spirit attacks, it can be very scary so I know that keeping a clear head isn’t always the easiest of things in that situation. That is why you should develop a clear plan for dealing with attacks beforehand and have all the tools that you need already prepared. If it’ll help, write down a basic procedure for banishing and keep it in your pocket or somewhere else that spirits won’t be able to easily see. That way even if you’re freaking out, you’ll have a lifeline telling you what to do.
Calling the Spirits
If a spirit attacks, tries to force their way into your circle, or suddenly acts hostile, banish immediately. It’s best not to take any chances. Once they are banished, cleanse the area and reinforce your wards. Sometimes spirits may do something that might make you uncomfortable but you don’t feel as though it’s bad enough to warrant forcing them out. You can simply ask them to leave or let them know that the behavior will not be tolerated. If they ignore your request, banish them. It’s possible that a spirit isn’t aware that they might be making you uncomfortable and so talking it out first before immediately jumping to banishing (if they’re not actively attacking you) could be beneficial for both of you. Just remember to be firm in your boundaries and don’t let the spirit persuade you into letting them go.
Reasons not to banish a spirit:
If they look “scary”. Their appearance doesn’t always reflect their personality. For some, that’s just the way that they were born.
If they’re a “demon”. Demon is a very useless, broad term that describes a myriad of entities all of which have different personalities and moralities. “Demon” is not the equivalent of “evil”.
Going out and Meeting the Spirits
The difference here is that you can’t really banish spirits when you visit them at their homes. That’d be like going over to a friend’s house and trying to kick them out. If a spirit attacks you while you’re away from your protected space, the best you can do is get out of there. If you came prepared with proper protection then it should be able to buy you enough time to escape. Depending on the situation, the attacking spirit may or may not be interested in chasing you. So, sometimes “escaping” can be simply removing yourself from the area immediately as the spirit is just acting aggressive so that you’ll back off. But other times, you may need to do a little more than that. If you suspect that you got followed home, perform a banishing of your property and cleanse yourself and the area. Then reinforce your wards.
The one thing that I have to say is that you need to be cognizant of why that spirit is attacking you. More specifically, you need to be aware of when your actions provoke a spirit to attack. Did you infringe upon their territory? Did you bother them after they told you that they didn’t want to interact? You are out in their realm, just as a spirit that you invite into your house should respect you, you should respect spirits when you meet them at their homes.
Which Process Should You Use?
It depends on what “level” of spirit work you’re at and what you want to accomplish. Calling a spirit to you is definitely requires an intermediate skill level in energy and spirit work whereas going out and meeting them only requires that you be able to sense and communicate with spirits. However, when you call a spirit to you, they’re more likely to be willing to talk since that’s what they came for according to your call. You’re also more protected since you’re able to have your circle and tools right at hand. Spirits that you simply meet outside aren’t always going to want to speak and it’s a bit harder to protect against them. So which process should you use? Both.
Not all spirits are interested in answering a call but they may be willing to talk with you come across them when outside. Sometimes, you need a long conversation with a spirit which is where calling them will be more useful. Calling them might even seem more convenient but I think that it’s important that you learn about the spirits around you by going out and meeting them before calling them to you. It not only helps you get a better idea of the community but it also lets spirits get a better idea of who you are.

Notes: This is 100000000% for my precious Camile, @minhosmeanhoe because she wanted something involving Stiles and masturbation because this is all we ever talk about (we are horny fuckers lol). But, even better, HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAMILE. You are one of my bestest friends I am glad I am able to talk to you daily. I don’t know what I would do without you. I LOVE YOU!!!!❤️
Two thousand is a big number. Sitting down to write 2000 words can be extremely intimidating, so the first thing you should do is make that number friendlier.
Write 500 words in 4 writing sessions.
Chop up that big, intimidating number. Start with a goal of 500 words. In one session, with no breaks, write them all. Take a break, then write the next 500. Repeat until you reach at least 2000.
If you write 650 words in one session, don’t aim for 350 in the next. Let those extra words add up. A few hundred extra words each day will get you to 50k quicker than you could imagine.
I recommend timing your sessions, aiming for 20 minutes each time. The deadline will help you get the words out, With 10 minute breaks between each session, you can reach your 2000 word goal in two hours. Which brings me to the next point:
Don’t stop and think about your words. Don’t go back and improve a previous sentence. Save all of your edits for later. Focus on writing as quickly as possible, throwing everything you have at that blank page. This will actually help boost your creativity. Make your brain work so fast, be so focused, that it doesn’t have any space to doubt itself and you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with.
But don’t worry if you can’t write 500 words in 20 minutes on day one. Writing quickly is a skill and it will take a few days of training.
Let the words suck.
This is absolutely key if you want a high word count. When you’re writing an entire chapter in a day, you shouldn’t expect the words to be beautiful. You’re not aiming at lyrical prose. You’re mining raw material that you can work into art later.
Letting the words suck can include:
Writing [something happens here] in place of a scene.
Letting yourself use cliches as shorthand.
Dialog that is really exposition.
Long descriptions of things that don’t matter.
Letting your characters ramble until you discover what it is they actually need to say.
As long as there are 2000 words and they relate to your story, they’re exactly what you need. And if you hate having bad words on a page, once you have your 2000 for a day, you can go back and fix all of it. Take all the time you need. Just reach that word count first.
Tip: if you do edit at the end of each day, make that a separate document from your official NaNo doc. This way, you can trim scenes, descriptions, and dialog without worrying about its effect on your word count. (If you make a scene/description/sentence longer, feel free to include that in your NaNo doc.)
Don’t know what to write next?
So you’ve written 1200 words, completed a scene, and you have no idea where the story is going next. Here are some things you can do to get those 800 words in anyway:
Go to writeordie.com and FORCE the words out.
If that doesn’t work, reread the scene you’ve just written and see if you’re missing some obvious foreshadowing, some clue as to where the story’s headed. (You can also add a few lines to bulk up your wc.)
If that fails, take a walk and let the fresh air usher a solution to you.
If that fails, skip the next section. Write another scene. Go where the story is waiting for you. Come back to the other scene at a later time.
Instead of breaking your writing session into four parts, break it into five. Use your first writing session to sketch out an entire chapter, like an outline, but with bits and pieces of dialog and description. Figure out where you’re headed and a couple of key stops along the way. Knowing what you’re writing towards will make doing the actual, fleshed-out writing much easier and quicker.
You can also do an outline for the next day’s writing after you’ve gotten your 2000 words for the day in. Future you will be extremely pleased.
funny story I was listening to classic fm earlier and the radio presenter was like ‘this next piece of music is related to Sherlock Holmes somehow, see if you can work out how’ and this beautiful romantic string piece came on, it was exquisite, and I was like he’s gonna say it’s related to Irene or some shit, but when it finished he said it was the music from the concert that Holmes and Watson attend in the Red Headed League (one of my favourite canon stories) where Holmes sits and gets lost in the music and Watson spends the whole time staring at Holmes like 'wow, look at how much he loves this’ and yeah. ACD intentionally wrote that as romantically as it could have been.
I was going to post this later but what the hell. This is in Yoongi’s pov, there will be more in his pov but I figured this needed to be done since I had some people freaking out over the last chapter. Thank you to anyone who has supported this story, it means the world to me. Anyway, hope you enjoy! (Also if you messaged me about how to make a masterlist, I forgot your username, i’m sorry! Message me again for the link it you still want it.)
Could you possibly do one with Harry and the daughter of tinker bell and she’s super short and under 5ft and needs help reaching things in her fix it shop so harry kind of helps her out but not with out fluff of him making her jump for it?? Thanks so much for taking time to read this
Disclaimer - I do not own any of Descendants’ characters and/or ideas all credit goes to the creator and producers of Disney Descendants
Pairing - Harry Hook x Reader
Summary – (Y/N), the daughter of Tinker Bell, is fixing something and her boyfriend, Harry Hook isn’t being the biggest of help
Warning(s) - teasing and a slight make out session at the end
Warnings: Reader uses strong language. Reader is a little extra but not as much as Klaus…
“Wait there’s another…” Lydia muttered and trailed off as she found another deadpool.
Everyone waited as she tried to open it but shoved her seat back and jumped to her feet with a growl of frustration. “What, isn’t it like the other ones?” Stiles asked quickly as he hurried across the room to help.
“No, I can’t figure… oh… oh no.” She gasped which drew the rest of you to gather round. “I know some of these and they’re all just kids.” She whispered as she slammed the print button and all but tore the paper from her printer before it came through.
Requests: “Hi I love your writing and I was hoping of you could write one where the reader is teasing Paul while hanging out with the pack and then he gets so frustrated that he makes the both of you leave and end up having rough sex in the car please? Sorry if it doesn’t make sense” -Anonymous and “so i saw your sex with paul lahote headcanon list, and i saw the thigh riding and i was wondering if you could write a paul lahote smut with thigh riding please? and the reader would be a curvy girl?” -Anonymous
Author’s Note: I decided to add these requests together to give me more of a plot to work with. I decided not to make it car sex bc I have a headcanon that Paul has a tuck, plus I don’t think any car would give Paul enough room to tease/fuck you as much as he’d like to. Also, I don’t write specifically for one body type, I try to write where anyone with any body type reads my work can imagine themselves in it.
Summary: Dean tries to plan a camping trip for his son and the reader doesn’t make it easy for him.
Pairing: Daddy!Dean x Reader
Word Count: 1,419
Dean never planned on braving this world as a single dad, hell he never planned on being single again. He married the love of his life nine years ago, only to discover that she was an adversary in disguise.
Once Dean’s home life became unstable, he knew it was inevitably heading down a rocky road. Leaving was a tough decision because of his son Drew but it turned out being the best thing for everyone.
So that’s how Dean ended up here, here being a charming ranch styled house in the middle of a Kansas suburb. Not a day goes by where he’s not thankful for having the strength to rebuild his life.
Although it definitely helps that Dean’s supportive parents and brother live close by. It helps that he grew up playing on the same dirt that his son is now. And it helps that his sporting goods store became wildly successful, allowing him to do what he loves.
“Alright, Drew. This is your last hurrah before school starts so make it count.” Dean plops down at the kitchen table with a pen and pad in hand.
“Never have I ever been to Taco Bell.” Every other player except Ethan put down a finger.
“What??” Mark yelled in response, causing Ethan to flinch. “How have you never had Taco Bell?”
“I just haven’t,” Ethan explained with a small laugh. Mark just shook his head in disappointment and let the game continue. He was really just upset that he was losing. Ethan still had up 5 fingers, Ty had 6 left, but Mark was down to 2.
“Never have I ever dated a guy,” Tyler said. Ethan and Ty both left up all fingers while Mark was forced to put one down.
“It was for a month!” Mark said angrily, causing the other two boys to laugh. “Fine, you wanna be a dick, two can play at that game! Never have I ever had a kidney transplant!”
“You fucking dick,” Ty muttered under his breath while putting down a finger. Mark just gave him a sly smirk before gesturing to Ethan to continue the game.
“Never have I ever had a crush on a YouTuber,” Eth said with a sly smile, knowing he was knocking Mark out of the game.
“You fucking bitch! Fuck you!” Mark yelled at Ethan. It was all in good fun, which meant Eth was busting up laughing at how angry the older man got. Mark got up and went to the kitchen to grab some snacks, leaving Eth and Ty to finish the game. Eth looked at Ty waiting for him to take his turn when he noticed something odd.
“Ty, don’t you have 5 fingers left? You were beating me,” Eth asked confused.
“Well I WAS a minute ago,” Ty replied, joking condescension clear in his voice.
“What? Oh wait, you…wait a fucking minute!” Eth said, not understanding at first.
“Shut up Eth,” Ty said, knowing where the conversation was heading.
“You’ve had a crush on a YouTuber?? What? When? Who? Why didn’t I know this? Do I know them?” Ethan rambled on until Ty covered his mouth with his rather large hands.
“Eth, if you don’t stop talking, I will shove a peanut down your throat,” Ty threatened before letting his grip loosen and removing his hand.
“We don’t even have any peanuts in the house you big bully,” Ethan said with mock sadness, putting on his best sad puppy dog face, to which Tyler just rolled his eyes and laughed. “But really, you have to tell me.”
“I’m not telling you,” Ty said firmly, but smiling.
“But Tyyllleeeeeeerrrrrrr,” Ethan drew out the name while clinging on to his arm, “You have to tell me!”
“I’m not telling you!” Ty said again, a little more forcefully. “It’s really nothing anyways, no big deal.”
“It’s? as in It IS? As in CURRENT?” Eth asked.
“No, I mean…it wasn’t…or…it is? I don’t even know,” Ty replied sounding exasperated.
“Well do you like them or not?” Ethan asked in a more serious tone. He really wanted to help his friend sort out his feelings.
Ty glanced up at Ethan for a second, making eye contact with the blue boy before answering, “Yeah. I really think I like him. A lot.”
Eth felt a blush creeping up on his cheeks. He knew Ty wasn’t talking about him, but either way, he still could hold on to that last shred of hope of Ty returning his feelings. “Well then maybe you should just go for it. Message them and ask them to go get dinner sometime or something,” Eth offered his advice. “Do they live around here? I guess I should have asked that before saying you should get dinner,” he added awkwardly.
“Yeah, they live pretty close by. You think I should go for it?” Ty asked, sounding more insecure than Eth had ever heard him say.
“Definitely,” Ethan said. He really wanted Ty to find someone, even if it meant Ty didn’t return his feelings.
“I think I will. I’ll message him right now.” Ty said, picking up his phone. That seemed to be the end of that conversation, so Ethan stood up and headed downstairs to the living room where he found Mark watching TV. He sat down on the couch and pulled out his phone to check twitter when he noticed a text.
‘Hey, I think you’re pretty cute. Wanna have dinner sometime? -Ty :)’
Ethan couldn’t help but blush and chuckle a bit to himself before sending a reply.
‘Get down here you doof so I can kiss you <3’
I know this is a pretty cliche storyline, but oh well. I didn’t see one for this ship so I figured might as well. Hope you liked it!

It’s hard to want to date when so many bad things have happened to you. One wrong turn in a relationship, and everything comes crashing down. Once that happens, why would you want to get back out there? You worry that the same thing will happen again, or that you won’t find the great guy you wish will sweep you off your feet the way you always imagine it.
Your draconic chart represents a lot of things. It’s karmic, spiritual and unconscious, pertaining to the soul and the soul’s desire, linked to destiny, fate and soulmates. Some think of the Draconic chart as the true purpose behind the soul’s intentions.
Draconic astrology is derived from the True Nodes of the moon. Instead of starting at 0 Aries at the Vernal Equinox, 0 Aries begins at the Moon’s North Node. If you were born with the North Node at 0 Aries, your Draconic and Natal charts would be identical. The Houses, and Planets in Houses remain the same, but the signs, degrees and degrees in the houses can change drastically.
Like the North Node, a Draconic chart will tell you about where you’re headed, if you choose to reach out, and like the South Node, it will tell you about where you have been, what’s comforting, familiar and secure. It’s said that as a child you were more your Draconic chart than Natal, as you were closer to your soul and true personality. It also has connections to reincarnation, the thought that your soul will carry it’s Draconic chart with it to each person it visits throughout your multiple lives. It can also explain attraction you cannot see in normal synastry and comparison.
A Draconic chart will represent deep values, belief patterns, individual purpose, meaning and clarity. It’s less characteristics and personality traits, and more higher ethics and the soul. Draconic placements indicate soul qualities and suggest the ideal the soul wants to attain in the world, as well as areas of growth, and who we subconsciously dream of becoming. The Moon of the Draconic chart is also said to represent your ‘true sign’ and the barest form of who you really are deep inside, whether you understand/know it or not.
Each sign still applies to it’s planetary meaning, but we view Draconic signs a little differently, turning their power inward and forwards. The Draconic chart is sensitive to transits and can be progressed, pertaining to life-changing events and encounters that we aren’t consciously aware of, such as someone accidentally being in touch with our Draconic inner qualities and guiding our lives. These events are thought of as ‘spiritual prompts’, guiding inner impulse to the surface.
The Draconic chart is best understood in comparison to the natal chart, as it interacts as two parts of your being; active and unconscious (Though Draconic astrology acts on a much deeper level than the subconscious persona chart characteristics of each planet)
Conjunction and Opposition aspects and where they fall when the two charts are compared are important. Through Draconic charts we can discover that those closest to us can be acutely aware of our soul’s purpose. (Amplifying the weight of advice coming from those closest to us. They may be more aware of what our soul and true selves need much more than we are consciously aware of.)
Some identify heavily with their Draconic aspects, while others don’t, showing us who is more in touch with their spiritual side and who isn’t. In the many layers of the Horoscope and personality, Draconic may represent the inner most layer, the one that shines through when everything else is peeled away.
The Draconic sun can tell you who exactly you want to be, and what traits and paths in life you wish you could follow. For example, my Draconic sun is in Cancer, and represents a lot of the emotional vulnerability, trust and security I deeply desire and wish I could apply to my life, but can’t as I’m not completely in touch with this side of my personality – rejecting it in fact, as guided by my natal chart.
The Draconic Moon is who you truly are. (as Draconic is based on the Moon’s True Nodes). You can call it your ‘soul sign.’ You may be a Sun Libra in your daily life, but your soul sign may be in Taurus, representing your soul’s true desire and true driving purpose. A more free spirited person who subconsciously strives for complete security.
The Draconic ascendant differs from the Natal Ascendant in that it represents our ‘intuitive identity’ rather than our ‘outward identity’. The Decan your Draconic Ascendant is in is important, as it can be heavily influenced by the sign next to it. Think of your Draconic ascendant as your ‘soul’s mask’.
The Draconic midheaven speaks of super consciousness, and the soul’s true quest, rather than our career paths and online persona, as the Midheaven is usually spoken of.
When you were born, you were your Draconic self. Your spiritual self, before the world and your Natal Chart shaped you to be who you are today. What you go through as a person decides how in touch you are with your Draconic chart, or how far you drift from it. Life may have stripped you of it, and made you fully your Natal self, or it may have driven you back to your soul’s spiritual values, and carved you into a more rounded person, in touch with your true self.
Both your Draconic and your Natal are truly you, as we are all a combination of things, layers upon layers and more than one person. A Draconic chart, especially in comparison with your Natal chart can help you find who you truly are.

“You ready?” Joe asked, checking the mic for the last time.
“Yep!” You responded, scooting over a tiny bit so that Joe could join you on the bed.
“Alright I’m gonna do the intro, do you want to explain it?”
“Yeah that works for me!”
It wasn’t often that you and Joe filmed videos together – he had always preferred for his personal life to stay private, but after Jack had accidentally outed the two of you in a vlog a few months back, Joe had grown more open to the idea of you on his channel. Not to mention that his fans absolutely loved seeing the two of you together.
“Hello everyone, today I’m joined with my girlfriend Y/N as you can see. Now, since we’ve been dating I’ve pranked her a few times, and she’s gotten me back each time, and in doing so, she’s proven herself to be quite the prankster herself. So today, I thought we were going to put our pranking abilities to the test with some good ole prank calls.”
“So, we’ve put all our friend’s names in this hat here, and whoever we pull is who we have to call and pretend that the two of us have gotten into a fight. The rules are we have to try and get whoever it is to be on our side of the argument, and if we do, we get the point,” you explained, giving the camera a thumbs up. The hat consisted of all the buttercreams, Alfie and Zoe, since they knew the two of you best.
“Rock paper scissors for who goes first?” Joe offered. You nodded and proceeded to lose, so he pulled a piece of paper out from the hat first.
“Ohhh, I’ve got Oli. Ughhh this is gonna be so hard, he bloody loves you!” Joe groaned. You grinned at the camera, getting excited.
You both waited as he rang Oli, listening to the tone until he picked up.
Oli: Ello! Joe: Ello, alright? Oli: Yeah, you? Joe: Eh, I’ve been better. Are you busy? Oli: Nah, I’m just at mine, what’s going on? Joe: I’m in a bit of trouble… Oli: Oh bloody hell, what’ve you done? Joe: Nothing too serious, it’s about me and Y/N Oli: Go on…
This is one of my favourite moments in Beyond (okay, there’s loads of moments, the majority of the film is a moment but I digress).
Firstly, the last scene we saw with Spock and McCoy was before night fell.
The went into a cavern thing to explore and Spock promptly fell to the floor. And we don’t see these two again until now.
It’s daytime again. We’re taken into the scene by Mccoy calling Spock’s name. He’s clearly very concerned about the condition Spock is in. He can’t rouse Spock by calling his name and we can assume that he has been unconscious some time by now.
So knowing that he can’t keep yelling at him, and maybe he’s already tried shaking Spock awake because McCoy purposely places his hands on Spock’s face. It seems very deliberate the way he places his hands on both sides of Spock’s face like that.
And it does what he wants, Spock wakes, unfocused and unclear, but….
you can see the second he realises where he is and what’s happening.
He doesn’t just look like he’s just remembered what happened, he looks quite alarmed (for an emotion repressing Vulcan anyway). And McCoy is making skin to skin contact so goodness knows what he’s getting from McCoy. It’s clear enough that Spock can’t have been clear headed enough to be blocking anything.
And as soon as he gets himself together, he actively removes McCoy’s hand from his face.
The one that Spock doesn’t remove lingers. Maybe the transference of emotions goes both ways and McCoy gets a glimpse into the emotional pit that is inside of Spock and isn’t quite prepared to just let go of that. But he does as Spock assures him that he’s fine.
