It’s like two people who don’t exist are interacting
this is a video of two people who accidentally find out that they’re both extraterrestrials after they realize they speak the same language unheard anywhere on earth and jimmy fallon realizes what is happening and he tries to put a stop to it because if the government finds out about it they’ll kill all three of them
A group of rough looking boys walked past me today and all I heard of their conversation was “he’s got that anxiety disorder bro so I went with him so he’d be more comfortable” and it made me realise the world isn’t all that bad
The pet store I worked at had a pen with rabbits near the front door. On every side of the pen were huge signs saying “You can pet me, but don’t pick me up!” One day two absolutely huge guys came in and one immediately reaches into the pen to grab a rabbit. Before i could say anything his friend grabbed his arm and asked him “did you see the sign?” He said “yeah! it says that you can pick them up but don’t pet them!” Then he went quiet for a moment and softly said “I didn’t read it right did I?” And his friend just puts his arm on his shoulder and said “its ok, i know you’ve got that thing where words get mixed up. Let just pet these cute lil shits” And I still haven’t gotten over that interaction.
I was walking my dog through Boston bc he likes the likes car rides. He’s a little thing tbh we call him short and long. So this huge scary man with a full beard approaches me like “hey can my buddy and I pet your dog? He gets nervous around dogs but your’s is so small I think it’s a good place to start.” Ofc I was like “yes he’s very friendly!” So this guy brings his equally big friend over and they sit on the floor while this man looks terrified of my tiny dog so big man number one asks “can I pick him up?” And i say yes so he picks him up and puts him on man number two’s lap and man number two is abt to freak out and his friend straight up just goes “hey man, it’s okay just relax I’d never let anything hurt you. He’s a good boy.” I’ll never forget it ever bc I know that man looked at me (5'3 , glasses, probably wearing a sweater vest) and my dog (kinda goofy looking little thing) and was like ‘ah yes the two least intimidating living things I’ve seen in Boston all day he’ll feel relaxed around them’ and went out of his way to help his friend. It makes me so happy
I love this
I was (of course it was) in NYC at the time, riding on the R train and this burly, tall, leather and black jeans with fuck off huge steel-plated knee-highs and a fourteen foot lime green mohawk gets on the train and sit’s down, his jansport backpack making this Ghu-awful THUNK as he sets it between his feet. And no one says anything. Everyone saw him because how could you not?
And he opens his bag and starts rustling through it and sets aside some YA novel that I don’t remember but that it had this absolutely lovely lavender purple cover. and then he pulls out his fucking knitting and just goes to town. Just, minding his own business, knitting away intently, listening to his earbuds.
And wasn’t a person on that train gonna say a DAMN thing about it. No one pointed or made any comments because this dude was built to crush motherfuckers. And he was knitting in public so you know he knew no fear and was happy and confident and then this little girl walked away from her mum and walked straight up to him and waved and her mother looked surprised (but not scared, this is NYC - we don’t know fear because we’re too busy). But the guy sees this little girl wave at him and just gives her the BIGGEST SMILE and waves back and takes out an earbud and says hi and they start talking about knitting and how he learned on his own and she wanted to learn and her mother didn’t know. But he suggested that there were knitting clubs and a lot of them were free and would happily help a new little knitter like her.
It was the single most adorable and heart warming thing of my life. Like here’s this dude with a Rancid t-shirt that looks like it was probably printed in someone’s flat fifteen years ago with an anti-nazi patch right over his heart and enough metal in his clothes to be worth recycling but a little girl waved and what type of nasty, heartless fuck doesn’t smile at kids? That ain’t punk.
Used to work at a nature center, which was attached to an elementary school. Occasionally the fire alarms would go off, and for the most part, we’d all just go about our business (weekly fire drills for the kids didn’t mean that the snakes tanks didn’t need cleaning).
In the middle of one of these alarms, I had a lovely 7’ long red rat snake wrapped around me while I was cleaning up. (She was my favorite - active, but polite, never bit or struck or pulled back to threaten it, or musked me, no matter what I did with her). Of course, law of averages, there had to be one that was a “real” alarm. Bunch of big firefighters come in, demanded to know why we weren’t outside with everyone else, the work’s.
And then they started screaming.
High pitched, girly shrieks. As first one, then another, noticed I was wearing a snake.
And, of course, the screaming brought more fire fighters over, who also screamed… let’s just say I had three trucks worth of dudes gathered around me, stunned that I would -wear- a snake. Who, of course, saw new people and was doing her best to make friends.
Once the false alarm was sorted, they all came back, to a man, to meet the snakes. I had enough for each of them to “try one on.”
These big, buff dudes, who risk their lives running into raging fires without a thought, had to hype themselves up for me to put a young hog nose in their palms. Anxiety sweat dropped down their faces and soaked through their undershirts as I let the red and grey rat snakes cool around their arms. When the garden snake slipped down one guy’s collar, I thought he was going to drop dead from a heart attack, right there. But they all did it! And survived!
I just wish I’d taken pictures to show the third graders when they came in after classes finished!
I go to college early or fall semester because of marching band and so do a lot of the fall sports teams right? So I’m in line in the dining hall, waiting for some spaghetti or something and two dudes from the soccer team or football team or something are behind me, just chatting, and I’m alone so I’m lowkey eavesdropping. At some point Sports Boy 1 notices another sports boy and points out the pants he’s wearing to his friend, Sports Boy 2. And he says something along the lines of “Those were the pants I was talking about before. What do you think? Could I pull them off?” And Sports Boy 2 looks around and finds the pants Sports Boy 1 was talking about and goes “yeah I think you could pull them off,” and then he paused and almost like an afterthought said “but you know, what’s important is that you feel confident in them,”
And man I sat there so touched because like, yes bro preach that body postivity to your friend, remind him that it’s not about what other people think but how he feels.
My life to have witnessed the firefighters meeting the snakes. Bless their hearts 🤣🤣🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍
London Underground, a few years ago. Punk guy - ripped jeans, leathers, multi-coloured mohawk, facial tattoos, safety pins where they really don’t belong, bottle in hand - talking to these two googly-eyed German tourist girls. Tells them how to get to wherever they wanted to go, cool free places in the neighbourhood, what to look out for. Gets up to leave with the final warning: “Just promise me you’ll be careful who you talk to, okay? Some pretty weird people in this town.”
These are so sweet😄
This has gotten better since I last saw it.
Every time this crosses my path, it has beautiful new stories on it.
I used to like hate saying no and now I’m just like yeah I’m not doing that and I think everyone is always so shocked by my reaction because they think I’m a yes girl but no I don’t do things that I don’t want to unless it’s like life or death whatever
peak taurus behaviour is when they don't vibe with someone and let the conversation slowly die, like they keep talking, because want to be nice and generally aren't into confrontations until actually triggered, but they are not very engaged into convo and don't want to put energy in it, so other person often finds them boring. but then they see ♉ with close friend going wild and they're like"?omg it's like you're totally different person?" and ♉'s on the inside"bold of you to assume you know me"

note: these are things i’ve noticed in my own chart & in those around me. if some of these notes don’t resonate with you, it’s okay! many things can affect how certain placements in our chart appear in our lives :)
• people with mercury conjunct venus might be good at lying ( they remind me of the song beautiful liar by beyonce and shakira)
• mercury conjunct or sextile venus can also be good at verbal seduction
• libra venuses can get a crush on someone very fast and if they have other melodramatic placements, they will often confuse this crush as being in love
• those with saturn in the 6th or 10th may have a hard time leaving their comfort zone. they are the type to continue to work at a job they don’t like because it’s familiar
• everyone wants to be perfect at a skill right away but i believe those with saturn in the 5th, 6th or aspects neptune may be extra hard on themseleves. they’d rather daydream about being perfect at it instead of actually staring to develop that skill (ex: daydreams about being a legendary painter and having their pieces in museums instead of actually picking up a paintbrush bc they fear they’ll be terrible at it and won’t live up to the standards they’ve set for themselves in their head)
• people with 2nd house uranus, uranus aspecting venus/asc, 2nd house aquarius or venus in aquarius hardly stick to one aesthetic for a long time. they’re always on the hunt for a new look, especially if their current one has gone “mainstream”
• moon-neptune natives can get very attached to their daydreams. like veryyy attached
• where gemini is in your chart can show where you randomly get ideas or the solutions to your problems. for example, a person with gemini in the sixth might do their best thinking while they are doing household chores. if gemini is in the 11th, it might be in the middle of a conversation with friends. in the 12th, it could be while they are under the influence.
• jupiter in libra or the 7th tends to have good luck with keeping friends or avoiding drama with their friends
• when it comes to clothing, leo in the 2nd can make things look expensive even if the clothes are very cheap
I have been learning astrology for years, without a doubt there have been extremely interesting topics such as midpoints, minor aspects, asteroids, arabic parts and even fixed stars, but, definitely, my favorite subject is dodecatermories, a subject of which I got very little information, but from the start it caught me. First of all, what are dodecatemories? They are the divisions into twelve of the signs. Sure you know the decans, right? Well, dodecatemories are similar.
As my interest grew in this subject, more were the hours that I spent awake trying to find the right way to interpret them. But, it all ended the same, my mind blank and unsatisfied. That is why I developed a theory to interpret them more accurately, since, by themselves they can give some insight, however, I have always liked being able to dig deeper and deeper.
There are two things that encouraged me to do this post, one of them, the fact that in one occasion a follower told me that they did not identify at all with their natal chart, nor with the sidereal, nor with the draconic. The second reason is the passion I have for this topic.
Again, this is a theory that personally, I found accurate and insightful, and I would love to share it with you guys.
First things first, how can you calculate your dodecatemories?
There are two ways, you can use Astro.com, in the “Extended Chart Selection“ there is the section “Chart type”, you must select: dodecatemoria/dvadashamsha, or you can do it manually, since the dividition between 12, each sign correspond to 2.5. Personally, I recommend using Astro.com because of the method that I use to interpret them.
You would see them like this:
Here you have three ways to interpret them with some personal examples:
1. By themselves: You get an insight of energy that involves the planet you want to analyze.
I’m going to put the same example that I gave previously. I’m a Pisces Sun with a Libra dodecatemory, I have always been indecisive, and I tend to play a lot the mediator role in my family and with my friends. I tend to be liked by people and I like to make others feel good and comfortable. I try to be balanced in many situations because, personally, I think extremes can be bad.
My Pisces Venus is in a Cancer dodecatemory, I love pampering, protecting and making feel loved my special ones. I have a motherly way of loving, I do not forget special dates and I try to be attentive to the needs of the people. I prefer quiet dates or preparing a romantic dinner, etc.
2. Its position in your natal chart: After you have the dodecatemory, you put it in the position in which it would be if it were a physical planet in your chart.
Here you have some examples: my Jupiter is in Libra in the 9th house, but it is in an Aries dodecatemory, by that, it would fall in the 3rd house. I have a lot of siblings and my relationship with them is awesome, I love teaching and I speak more than one language. It’s easy for me to start a conversation since I am really talkative.
My Pluto is in Sagittarius in the 12th house in a Virgo dodecatemory, it falls in my 8th house. It will sound cliché, but I love talking about taboo topics, I have no problem with death and, in fact I don’t see it as something sad, I see it as something natural. I really like to investigate the most mysterious and intriguing sides of life.
3. Aspects that they are making to your planets: You may get insights about how the dodecatemory relates to other planets!
My Venus dodecatemory is in Cancer at 25°, it conjuncts my Saturn. I take the idea of being in a relationship and what I want in one quite seriously and I am really blunt since I do not like to waste my time or make the other person lose it. Not to mention how much I love Saturn/Capricorn energy.
Wish you all a nice and wonderful day! Take care and put them in practice!🧡🧡🧡

i feel like everyone’s forgotten some Covid basics so please let me remind you:
Your mask protects others more than it protects you
You can still spread covid even if you’re vaccinated or not showing any symptoms
The more this spreads around, the more mutated variants of the virus will appear and they WILL be stronger than the original
so like maybe stop being a little bitch and endangering others because you really, really needed to go out to dinner or get fucked up at a bar instead of in your home like a respectable person
Vaccines are not 100% effective so vaccinated does not mean definitely immune. There are new strains, we do not know how well the vaccines work against the news strains. Viruses mutate, if Covid19 gets into your body and you have immunity your immune system becomes the selection pressure for a form of the virus you are not immune to. This becomes a game of probability: the more times you are exposed to the virus the more chances the virus has to find a combination not recognized by the immunity.
Wear a mask.
Keep safe until Covid19 stops transmitting actively.
I am only saying this to avoid fearmongering about the viral mutation of Covid-19 and distrust in our ability to recover. RNA viruses do not mutate in response to specifically your immune system, at least not for the most part. What @captainfanoftheceiling is thinking of is bacterial infections and bacterial mutation that leads to antibiotic resistance or “super bacteria.”
The Sars virus that causes Covid is an RNA virus with, so far, a relatively slow mutation rate and mutations that are similar enough for scientists to be hopeful that current vaccine or slight modifications will be effective.
It’s true that being vaccinated does not make you fully immune; it’s true that wearing a mask protects other people more than yourself. Wash your hands, be considerate, but please double check the stuff you hear on social media.
