you shine brighter than ever

5

Sometimes, you can’t help feeling like trapped in a cage. Alone. Helpless. Powerless. But never forget… As long as we’re willing to share, even in the darkest shadows, we can shine to the best of ourselves!

Thanks for all your kind birthday messages. I love you all! I wish you the best for 2017. May you shine brighter than ever.

Basic transits meaning

 Feel free to add + correct something! I’m still learning about this so your help is amazing :)

I’ll cover the houses here. If you want to check your transits, here you have a tutorial by @astrologanize

Sun: focus, where you shine brighter than ever! Where the sun falls, it’ll be your main interest for a certain time. For example, Sun transiting your 11th house will focus on social life, friend groups and your dreams. Sun transiting your 6th house will be focused on routine and getting things done, rather than dreaming and being social.

Moon: this planet’s transits are really short (2 days approximately), so its effect is more like “daily mood” than big and meaningful cycles in your life. These transits show where your emotions are focused on, and where you may be more creative. I highly recommend to check the sign where the transit Moon is in! For example, Cancer moon is transiting in your 2nd house. That’ll mean you’re a lot more attached emotionally to your material goods, and you may buy too many things during this transit. Of course, this feeling only last for like two days so next week you might regret all the useless things you’ve bought…

Mercury: this planet’s transits tend to last one month aproximately. These transits show where your mental focus is, your mental state and what kind of subjects are you up to learn. Plus, it brings a lot of energy to the house’s activities. For example, Mercury transiting the 3rd house will be a lot more witty and will seek more mental stimulation than usual. It may be difficult to stop thinking and you may jump from one thought to the next fearly quickly. This is a good time to focus on mental activities, like school or college.

Venus: this planet’s transits last about one month. This transits tend to show where you feel more confident and social. If it isn’t in a bad aspect with any natal planet, it’ll be a good transit. Depending the house transit Venus is, you may be a lot more creative and artsy. For example, Venus transiting your 5th house will make you more prone to flirting without a clear objective, more like an entertaiment than a real affair. This placement is perfect for creative activities, like drawing.

Mars: this planet’s transits last about one month. This brings a boost of energy to the activities concerned to the transited house, and may indicate what drives you during that time. For example, Mars transiting your 9th house will be eager to learn, and motivation to travel and experience new things.

The following planets have a wider orbit around the sun, therefore, they stay longer in each house. Personally, I think their effects are way more crucial than, for example, the moon’s. 

Saturn: this planet’s transits last about one or two years. It is mostly seen as a hard aspect because it shows where one have work to do in order to reach a goal, where we don’t feel enough and it sometimes lead to insecurity and limitations. For example, Saturn transiting in the 10th house can make you feel useless in your career and vulnerable in front of others, and you might feel your work isn’t rewarded. This is a good time to work harder than ever and find holes in your public image and goals.

Jupiter: this planet’s transits last for one year. It shows where you find yourself luckier and happier, and what will help you to expand your life. This is generally seen as a good transit, not matter what kind of aspects it has with your natal planets. For example, Jupiter in the 12th house finds happiness and expansion through relaxing and spiritual ways, like meditation. This is a good time to analyze yourself and let your ego wash away.

Uranus: this planet spends many years in one house and sign. It brings change and mental energy. Change is abrupt and may be caused by a change of mentality or plain boredom. Uranus is here to start new things, to dare and to challenge you. For example, if Uranus is in your 1st house, you may feel you need to change your appearence and your identity may be challenged. This is a good time to change your style and re-create yourself.

Neptune: this planet spends many years in one house and sign. Where it is placed, things get burried. It’s a time where you are more creative, spiritual and confused at the same time. This transit paints a certain part of your life with fantasy. If Neptune is transiting your 6th house, for example, you’ll daydreaming a lot more than you’re used to and procrastination may take over your life if you don’t control it. This is a good time to make art though.

Pluto: this planet spends many years in one house and sign. Transformation is the key word for this transit. Where transit Pluto is placed, things (think about habits, cycles, etc) end in order to start new ones. Also, it can symbolize that your current habits will be transform permanently. Negative feelings may be regular in certain times. Things from the past may do a come back. For example, if Pluto is transiting your 7th house, several of your relationships and friendships may transform in something new, bad or good. Plus, some of your relationships may end and that will mean a new cycle, a “new” you. This is a good time to reevaluate your relationships and throw away the negative ones in your life.

Hey.

Take care of him for me.

Let him talk about research that you won’t understand, because it will make his eyes light up and shine brighter than anything you’ve ever seen. Let him be a nerd and talk about everything that makes him happy, because it’ll put an adorable childish smile on his face every time he does. Let him lie down next to you at the end of the night, because no matter how much he won’t admit it, he likes having someone to hold. Let him fall asleep while you play with his hair because my god, it’s just about the most adorable thing you’ll ever see.

Take care of him. Because, oh, how I wish I could.

so this is how it ends:
a slow, sweet burn.

you were always the sun to me,
you knew this. 

you let me build a whole universe
around you and then one day, 

you turned the lights out.
it is dark here now, the shape of you

still tattooed on the insides of my eyelids.
 you promise me i will find someone 

who shines brighter than you ever did but 
right now, i can’t imagine feeling anything but blind.

Gif source:  ((Unknown))

Imagine being Gabby’s younger sister and her sending Severide to pick you up from university when your car breaks down, because she knows you’ve always had a huge crush on him.

——— Request for anon ———

You had been expecting Gabby, but as soon as you spotted that familiar mustang, you knew who she’d sent to pick you up in her stead, “Kelly.”

“Hey, Dawson,” Severide calls out of the rolled down passenger side window as he comes to a complete stop in front of you, that grin that could make you swoon shining brighter than ever. “Gabby was on shift.”

You smirk, popping open the door and sliding into the car alongside him, “And you aren’t?”

“Ah,” he begins, giving a shrug, “there was a break.”

Love Letter from: Tamaki Suoh

My dear,

Has anyone ever told you how your eyes shine brighter than the moon on a cloudless night? As though the stars themselves have chosen to launch themselves from the heavens to live within their depths? Or maybe that your smile could put the sun itself to shame? That the warmth I feel just from just seeing it could best any summer day? At the risk of being too blunt, you are beautiful. Aphrodite herself would be ashamed of her appearance after gazing upon you. 

I’m sorry, this probably seems lame. I’ve written this letter so many times, so many revisions, so many crumpled pieces of paper. I just wanted it to be perfect. I wanted to put into words all that you mean to me. How, when I look at you I can’t help but feel like a child who has just developed his first crush. Your gaze meets mine and suddenly my heart beats as though it is trying to win a race. You make me so happy. I can’t imagine my life without you now. How did I ever even live without you? I can’t even remember anymore. And that is exactly what makes me feel so guilty. 

You deserve someone so much better. Someone more mature than I am. Someone who can guarantee you a safe future with his family’s company. Someone more talented, smarter, calmer, kinder, someone more. More than me, and more than what I can give you. I have no certain future. I have no large family to comfort you when you fall. All I have is hope, and love. Hope that for some ridiculous and dumb reason you will stay with me. Hope that I will be able to give you the life of a royal that you deserve. Love for the small family I do have.  Love for you, and all you are.

I love you so much. You are so talented. I know that you will read that and protest. It’s true though. You are talented because you try. You try so hard in everything you do. In school, in life…in love. You put up with so much. You have struggled and suffered more than I could ever imagine, yet still you try. You never give up, not when it matters. You are my constant, and I can only hope that I am yours. I will be here to catch you when you fall, for you to lean against when you can no longer stand tall. I will be a shoulder for you to cry on when you can’t take it anymore. You have fought so long, so hard. Though you may have fallen and bled, look where you stand now. Alive, and willing to fight again. And I’ll be here by your side, watching your back when the pressure of enemies, both seen and unseen, becomes too much.

I love you. The words are too often aid by those who don’t mean it, and not said enough by those who do. I love you. I won’t be apart of either statistic. I love you. I will say it often and mean it. Life is too short for me to leave you guessing at that. I love you. I love you more than Darcy loved Elizabeth, more than Romeo loved Juliet, more than Prince Charming loved Cinderella, more than Narcissus loved himself. I love you. Though I do not deserve you, I love you. I love you my dear.

Forever,

Tamaki Suoh

there is nothing more heartbreaking than knowing your best friend hates herself. i took one look at mine, and thought to myself, “you’re crazy.” because how can you not love your adorable freckles which are like little constellations on your porcelain skin? how can you not love your big, cerulean blue eyes which shine brighter than any star you’ve ever wished upon? how did the universe even come up with someone so amazing?
—  #13 excerpt of a book i’ll never write.

Three May’s ago, all I think about was you. I was drowning in my fascination of you. You were the only star in my galaxy.

And I can see now, as I saw then. You were perfect. You were talented. You were everything in this world. Not a spot of darkness could taint your brilliance. And until this very moment, you still are.

But now, I can see other stars in my galaxy. I am not blind anymore. And I do not wish to reach you.

It’s been a long time since we last talked. And I haven’t seen you in a while. But tonight I heard a recording of you singing and it brought back memories.

It’s been three years. And I have moved on from you. I felt nothing the last time we talked. And I’m sure wherever you are right now, you are making another legend.

You still shine bright in my galaxy, dear. If not brighter than ever. But now I can see there are million of other stars. And I’m falling for another.

—  A.A // I’ve learned that what you’re stressing right now won’t actually matter in the future
The entire universe aligned itself ever so carefully and perfectly at the exact moment my eyes met yours
As if somehow it knew that I would be laying in bed on this rainy morning
Falling in love with the way your body fits the contours of mine
And the lullaby of the rain fell in line with your heart beat and your peaceful sleep
You were my moon in the sky full of stars and you shined so much brighter than I could have ever hoped
It was as if the universe knew that I would lose myself in your eyes and that I would hear the song of your laughter in my darkest times, filling me with so much light
It knew that only you could mend the broken pieces and save my life
And the universe knew before I did that I would be so in love with you

today is the first day in three months i have caught myself smiling over just the little things and i know now that everything is gonna be alright. i just wanted to share this on here because sometimes we need little reminders that it’s okay to be sad and drowning in darkness because that’s how we find our light again. you’re a radiant sun beam and you shine brighter than you will ever know.

these are two of my favorite pictures. you are so effortlessly beautiful, it blows my mind. I’m not really quite sure how i got so lucky finding you. but I’ve gotta say you’re different hannah heinrichs. its so effortless being with you. no makeup is necessary, ill sing in the car (which i won’t do with anyone else), i can be my goofy self without being insecure. silences arent awkward but comfortable. theres nothing i love more than listening to you sing at the top of your lungs when were driving somewhere, or having you dance around the room while were getting ready in the morning. theres nothing i wouldn’t give to kiss the little constellations of freckles on your face every morning, or looking into your eyes that shine brighter than the sun ever could. days with you feel like moments, and weeks without you feel like years. i am so honored to be your girlfriend. i know this is sappy, but I’m missing you a little extra today. but on the bright side, we’re one day closer to forever together.

I’m laying here & all I can think about is you.
the way it’d feel to hold your hand,
to wrap my legs around you as we sleep,
to wake up to see your face.
you.
you.
you. your smile fucking shines brighter than anything I’ve ever seen & on everything i love the way your voice sounds.
