ღ In ancient Greek times, the constellation Scorpius was significantly larger and comprised of two halves. In the first century BC, the Romans turned the claws into a separate constellation, Libra, the Scales. The Venus beauty walks alongside the Pluto dragon, like grace and battlescars, the hand of love wrapped around weathered skin, the beauty leading the divine beast

and Venus rules the Taurus-Scorpio axis, so the beauty is him, Libra-Scorpio is the grand entrance, cosmic fairytale, the treasure of the underworld and princess of the zodiac

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.

And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

ALL OF THIS

This is how me and my family are living these months.

My mom has a great job but doesn’t make enough to support all five of us. She’s working extra hours but it isn’t enough and with school starting for my brothers and them needing over priced uniforms, we’ve all reached the end of our rope.

On top of this, my mom also has diabetes and sometimes has trouble getting the money for her medication. And as people who have/are dealing with this kind of disease you know that everything is so much more harder for her. When she gets a paper cut it can last a month and when she gets caught in the rain, she is guaranteed to get sick and as she says so many times “[she] cannot afford to get sick”.

Right now we are trying to move from this house into a smaller, more affordable one but the chances of that happening anytime soon are dwindling. In addition to this, my mom wants to visit our sick grandfather in New York who has multiple myeloma. If anyone who has heard of this would know that it affects your organs and there is no cure for it. We are all hoping for one last visit before he passes on.

I’m asking that you please help us. I don’t like this life for my brothers who have to wonder if it was okay that they are ramen for breakfast or that my mother can’t see her father one last time. Anything and everything you donate will be used to help my brothers and mother have an easier more enjoyable life.

I have set up a fundraiser and a paypal on my blog. Again, anything and everything you can spare will be much appreciated and if you cannot donate, please share this so that it gets around.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS PLEASE

Tonight will be the Full Stag Moon, so called because stags will start to grow their antlers at this time. It is also called the Thunder Moon because of the thunder storms brought on through the hot and humid air. 
Tonight’s Full Moon is a Supermoon, scientifically called a Perigee Moon, it is when the moon is closer to earth than normal so appears bigger and brighter in the sky, it is the first of 3 Supermoons coming back to back over the next few months. Tides will rise up to 18% higher than normal, and wildlife is highly effected by Supermoons especially birds, sea life and wolves. 
As with all Full Moons things will be illuminated that were once hidden, raw  emotions will surface, but because this is a Supermoon just like the tides our emotions are also heightened, we will feel everything more than normal our senses will be sharp and we will be able to see things more clearly, like a fog has been lifted, you can look further into the future than before. 
The Moon is in the constellation of Capricorn. Which will give us energy to work hard and deal with matters of money and finances. Think big and dream big, this is a time of looking to the future and ask ourselves what we want from life and how we can achieve it. The earth is bursting with energy at the moment, new life is blossoming and blooming all around us, use this energy to propel yourself in a direction you want to go, the universe wants you to succeed and achieve your goals.
This is a time of new starts, of shedding our skin and moving forward. Change old habits that keep bringing us to the same place in life and embrace new ideas and perspectives. Come out of your comfort zone a little and try new things, keep your mind open to anything.
Change or be changed is the message of this Full Moon. Since the Summer Solstice you should have felt a sense of something shifting both within yourself and with the outside world, this because we have crossed a line. The first half of the year is over it was mid year in June, we have now entered the second half of the year. This a good time to look back over the last 6 months and look at what you have learned, what you have lost and what you have gained. Take lessons from what you have learned good or bad and use them in your future endeavours whether this be in work, relationships or family. 
Use the energy of this Full Moon to heal, Soak up the intensified energy of the Supermoon and let it cleanse you. 
Have a Blessed Full Moon, may the Goddess watch over you.

Natal Moon in Virgo - Emotional Scheduling 
Natal Moon in Virgo individuals emanate a cautious consideration and practicality. Generous resources are poured into duties of organization and exploring the potential variable in every situation. These individuals possess a sparkling mental acuity that retains its crystallized composure under the threat of disorder, and portray a natural levelheadedness that urges others to rely on them. Even in the midst of emotional frays, their acute common sense is the intrinsic reflex used to navigate situations that inflame their inner world. Lunar Virgos blend the empathetic resolve of the Moon with the transcendental healing energies of Virgo and make naturals in all health and service related fields. 


 

Moon in Virgo people possess material thought streams and prefer to confront problems immediately rather than let issues restlessly simmer. These individuals are ravenous in search for knowledge that can be applied in practical form and delight in  conversation once emotional ties have been built. For Lunar Virgos the sentiment of communication provides a great remedy for anxiety. Much of their nervous energy will directed into organization, de-cluttering and attempting to refine the external world in hope the internal sparkles in reflection. During times of emotional upheaval they may regress into primitive behaviors such as foot tapping or hair twirling, and find it difficult to remain still in high pressure situations. Lunar Virgos may experience intense difficulty negotiating emotions and prefer to work most sentiment through a logical framework. During times of distress, it is a reflex for these personalities to withdraw into their own bubble and eschew the support of others. Virgo’s placement here is associated with rampant intellectualization, self contemptuous behavior and digestive upsets during difficulties.
 

Lunar Virgos make a rapid critical assessment of their environment seep beyond the surface into the underlying mechanics of functioning. These individuals are at victim to a harsh inner critique and inflamed eyes that immediately distinguish the surrounding flaws. Environments of disorder are likely to trigger their anxieties and restlessness, and it can be impossible for them to relax with a door left partway open or mess scattered about. They can be fierce defenders of their imaginative worries and spend a lot of time in preparation. Lunar Virgo’s are intrinsically nurturing people who feel emotionally compelled to offer service, mostly in the practical form. Where the the Sun in Virgo keeps the room in order, the Moon in Virgo straightens out the knotted emotional ripples.
