Bros in cargo shorts are telling me about their ghost experiences and I am in HEAVEN

therumpus:

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week, you can see the whole world around you with new eyes; this week, everything can look different. There are things that you’ve known for too long to really see them, and there are people you’ve taken for granted, and there are dreams inside your own heart that you’ve been ignoring. Try to slow down for a minute. Try to let your feet guide you, try to believe your own eyes. You can look around, you can reevaluate the things you thought you knew, you can see your world clearly, you can let strange new love blossom in your heart.
 Taurus: This might be a week for being a little quiet, it might be a week for letting yourself get distracted, it might be a week just to sit and listen to the world move around you. This week can be full of unexpected moment, unexpected joy, things you could not have even dreamed up on your own. Try to listen to the birds in the morning, listen to the radio, listen to the traffic outside. Try to listen to the stories your friends tell you; try to take their advice.
 Gemini: Maybe you’ll feel a new burst of energy this week, and maybe you’ll feel a change, and maybe you’ll feel some wild need inside of you. It’s a week for just growing toward the sun, it’s a week for angling all your body and your thoughts toward the light. Think of yourself as a plant, as a tree, as something with all the green wisdom of the world in your own body. You don’t have to keep growing straight up into the sky. Growing strong and strange can be enough.
 Cancer: There are so many things you don’t know and so many futures you can’t see, and this might bother you this week, it might scare you, it might get under your skin. It’s going to be a week for uncertainty, and this is not a bad thing. It’s going to be a week for believing what you need to believe, even when there’s no proof, just a feeling in your stomach. It’s going to be a week to walk to the park, to look at the sky, to sit and live and wait and see.
 Leo: You might feel some fire start to burn in your blood again this week, you might start to feel some new energy taking hold of you, you might start to feel like you’re finally in motion again, like the world is new. You might feel moved to quit your job, to drive across the country, to change your name, and even if you can’t do these things, it’s okay to daydream all day long. There is motion in your dreams, there is motion in your words, there is so much world for you. There’s so much you can do.
 Virgo: This week might be full of a strange bright electricity. It might be a week for storms in the afternoon, thunder that wakes you up at night, lightning that rips branches off the trees on your street. It won’t be bad and it won’t even be scary, just a sign that there’s a charge in the air, that the weather is changing, that good strange days are coming. Stay inside as much as you have to. Drink a cup of tea and watch the rain on your windows and wait for a change
 Libra: This is a week for working to love the place where you are, it’s a week for working to love the place that’s your home, it’s a week for feeling your feet on the ground and the world moving all strange and sweet around you. It’s a week for taking long walks, it’s a week for talking to your neighbors, it’s a week for returning your library books. You can let the town you live in love you back, if you want. You can find a feeling of rootedness, if you want.
 Scorpio: This is a week for spending time with people you love, with people who make your eyes sparkle, with people who make you generous and kind. This is a week just for being with the people you love, even if it sounds too simple, even if it sounds like it could not be enough. You can let your thoughts slow down just a little, this week. You can let your muscles relax. You can spend your days with people who bring out the self that you like best, and for now that can be enough.
 Sagittarius: It’s going to be okay, this week, to let yourself be ruled by curiosity. It’s going to be okay just to wait and to see what’s going to happen next. If you really let curiosity bloom all bright and weird in your heart, it can open up whole universes, it can open new futures, it can let you see the world so strange. Try to let your curiosity make you brave. Let it make you generous. Let it help you to see with an honesty that could haunt your dreams.
 Capricorn: This week you might feel strange and you might feel scared and the world might seem too full of noise for one person to live in. Try to remember that you have everything you need. You have dreams that could fill up the whole sky, and you have days full of sunlight, days full of motion, days full of possibilities. You can walk away from every bad thing. You can build a house to live in, all warm and sweet. You can keep singing all through the night and all through the morning.
 Aquarius: The world might offer you so many choices this week, it might show you so many possibilities, it might dazzle you with all of the lives you could have. This is a gift, but it might not always seem that way. This is a gift, but not an easy one. You have to keep moving, this week. You have to rely on your own sense of balance. When there is no map, you have to rely on your own self. Listen to songs that make you feel brave enough. Listen to Nicki Minaj.
 Pisces: If you start to forget who you are this week, if you start to forget how to live, try to see yourself through other people. Try to see yourself through the friends who believe in you most. Try to see the ways you glow and shine in other people’s eyes. There are so many ways to live and so many ways to see; spend your days with people who help you remember this. You can rebuild your confidence. You can relearn how to love your own self. You can remember the magic in your bones and the light in your heart.

Reblogged from w i t h y o u

I just laughed out loud in my office because it is actually the craziest thing in the ENTIRE WORLD to me right now that there was a time that another adult human woman had me convinced that I did not deserve friendship!!!

Anonymous said: I have a friend who has been my greatest ally for years, and whose kinship I have never known greater. Things have become extremely strained between us recently, and now it seems they refuse to give my feelings the time of day. Should I to confront them person-to-person to try to save what friendship we have left? When do I know it's time to move on?

charmcore:

Witch the First: I had a Sister once with whom I cavorted and cackled endlessly.  Endlessly!  We required no other, ne’er did we feel the fevered hand of boredom on our breast.  Around us the air took on the aspect of shimmering brilliance and the faint odor of verbena.  When we spoke our words created a minor-key but mellifluous current of song. 

Or so I believed.

Now, can I say with any certainty that none of these things ever even came to pass?  Though I Witnessed them with my very own Eye?  I cannot!  And yet had they truly happened how could they ever have stopped?  They did stop, and so they must always have been stopping.  Will they resume again?  Who can say.  Then I can also say they will have always been resuming.  Do you follow?

You write that they will not so much as turn your feelings to face the Wheel of Time.  I demand of thee: what of their feelings?  Now I demand of thee again, my wizened finger a mere snake’s breath away from your face, no, I said, what of THEIR FEELINGS?  DO NOT BULLSHIT A WITCH.

Because at first you answered me, “They are being a bad friend and totally not supportive and I need to confront them to correct this wrong which is being done to me.”

Can you confront a wilting gorse blossom back to life?  Can you confront a wind into blowing northward instead of eastways?  I mean, I can.  But you cannot.  What does the gorse need?  Water.  Give it water.  Hope it will revive.  What does the wind need?  Nothing.  It needs nothing.  It moves without want.  You may confront anything you wish!  Gorse blossoms, winds (sacred or non-), friends who no longer quite fill your chalice.

But you may as well give sand to the gorse blossom or your own heart’s blood to the wind.  And perhaps your friend has chalices to fill at which you refuse to cast your glance.  An entire table set for hungry guests (or ghosts) which you will not see.  So it was with my Sister.  

Which is not to say all hope is lost!  Oh hardly.  My Sister and I, though torn asunder by forces so cruel and so melancholic that I dare not even whisper their appellations in your presence, were mostly in the end blown apart by my own adamant insistence upon misunderstanding her.  

Why did I so insist?  So that I could summon that song and that odor of verbena.  It is not difficult to understand why I would wish to feel such pleasure.  It is more important to ask, when I felt her hand slip from mine, why did I call after her a Name which was not her own?  Why did I say, no, I say this is your Name.  Answer to that alone.  And when I call it, you MUST return to me.

Why, when she faced the Darkest Enigma, did I dare say, she is acting like such a b-word.  Possibly even c-word.  She was facing the D.E.!!!!!  I was facing only my own refusal to accept that her face had to turn away from me.  I will tell you who had it harder: not me.  What I endured was a veritable pleasure garden within a perfumed jungle filled with tiny, many-flavored tea cakes that never got too warm or sticky nor did they attract insects.  Seriously.

Before I knew about the pleasure garden things, I spent some time in my sea cave mulling over the situation with a GREAT deal of misguided bitterness.  It is no wonder that I was so susceptible to the charms of Maelstroms at that moment.  It is no wonder my spells turned half the time to ash in my hands.  Within me lay that knot of furious, willful misunderstanding.  It messes everything up!!

And then I untangled the knot almost all the way, and the friendship, it’s not like it was, but it is like it is.  I see my Sister now clearly, not through a golden mist.  I HATED when the golden mist dispersed.  For ages it seemed the golden mist was GONE and she had TAKEN IT.  But now it is within me.  And I prefer to take her hand, same as ever, through the clear, mistless air.  Fogs have many wonders (BOY do they), clear sight more.

Confront your Illusions.  Let the mists clear and see if one day a hand is there again to greet you.

Witch the Third: It is an interesting fact of Now that friendships are, largely, a matter of convenience.  This in contrast to kinship, marriages, LLPs, and so forth.  Those of us tangled in these may not like our snare-mates, but the dislike must be chronic and severe before we name it let alone retreat from it.  But virtus amicitiva; friendship is that in which liking occurs, its obligations dissolve with the sympathies, sometimes sadly missaligned.  Though the sympathies can often endure strain that would tax a tighter binding, so who even knows.  This all strikes me as more trouble than it is worth and is why I turn to friends only when sworn vassals are not on hand.  I venture a guess that you have no sworn vassals yet?  Recommend. 

This answers your first question, asked in the unasking, which was “vassals y/n?”

For the rest.

It is time to move on when Theia gives into the tug of Venus and shifts so slightly to head for Earth. It is time to move on when the cargo carrying Justinian’s flea sets from Canopus for the Harbor of Elutherios.

How, if clairvoyance is not among our gifts, can we know this? Well.  

A witch does not make it long without a keen nose for a coming squall. Perhaps you have noticed that when we are disfavored we are never simply unwelcome, fuuuuuuccck you very much, assorted dunkers, stakeburners and other total dicks.  In any case when empty air shudders and gives way to the scent of shale on a heavy wind, when the Being tenses against the blow about to land, we have generally already escaped to our caves, our catacombs, our clifftops.

Where to catch the scent.  Of course if charms decocted with your once-friend’s lymph start having unintended effects it is likely she has turned against you, but that goes without saying; I imagine that if this method were available to you would have employed it.  Your lack of vassals and other people’s lymph makes me feel reasonably assured that you do not posses the tools of the auger, the haruspex, the scryer, the pyromancer, the hydromancer, or any of the other main mancers. You may have an iPhone? In her depths is a powerful tool for such divinations.  I prescribe this warily, as I have not fully puzzled out all the component enchantlettes, especially with this OS update.  Take care you do not stop this midway lest you be ensnared and made a meal for a Killer App.  

Now.  Summon the last text message this kindled, kindred spirit  sent you. Place your hand over the screen. Close your eyes.  Summon its image with your breath.   You will feel a tightness, a fear, a muscle heat.  If it is between your shoulders, give up. If it is in your throat, keep on.

Witch the Second: Does a wise witch cast love spells? Mired in confusion though you seem, I am confident you See this quandary clearly. 

But here, I answer it for you anyway: No! A wise witch does not! You cannot coax love from another person in whom love does not exist. You cannot. And friendship is not so different. 

Your sister has already given you the gift of kinship. But this giving was not a promise of future gifts, of forever giving. It was what it was. It existed when it existed, when you two lived as people who are not quite the same as the people you are now. 

The Wheel turns. Hearts warm and cool for reasons we cannot name, nor fathom. Friendships wax and wane like the moon; shift like seasons, though not so predictably.

Once, when I had ventured into a new and strange territory — a territory where I could not accept visitors — a dear, close Friend said via “”””e-mail”””” that he missed me, but that he understood my paler friendship to be simply “the natural ebb and flow of [my] presence in our relationship.” In saying this — in saying that he did not blame me for turning temporarily away from him, so that I might turn instead more fully to my own wicked and delightful innards, in this blighted and beautiful unfamiliar plane — he left the road between us open. Two moons later, I popped a xanax and hopped on that broom and flew home. My Friend and I got drinks. We cackled re: recent strange bedfellows; we took “shots”; I feigned interest in the “”””current events”””” with which he remains so inexplicably fascinated. Looking at his face, I felt warmth and affection return in full bloom. I had always thought him Sightless but during this season, in which he allowed a retreat and a return without judgment, I wondered. I wonder still. 

Perhaps your friend is somewhere new. Perhaps she cannot accept visitors right now, much less make the journey to you. (Are you also somewhere new? Worth considering.) 

You cannot force love, nor kinship. You can merely clear the roads.

For ten months (but actually much longer) I was pretending to be a different person than I really am, but now I’m going home before I can do any real damage to my self
/for ten months but actually much longer I was pretending that I could will myself into wanting things other than what I actually want
/it’s very weird, emerging from like the specific strains of ~radical theory that I spent my early 20s wading through, to find that I have a self that just keeps pushing back against the ways I try to Construct A Self
/you know like aesthetics you know like performance you know like performativity you know like it’s all whatever, except that
/in my own bad brain it keeps turning into this much worse thing, where if we’re performing selves then there is no excuse not to perform the best correct self 
/and so it just goes and goes, unlearning the stuff you’ve learned so that you can learn ~critical ~theory then unlearning the theory so that you can like live your dumb life and be extraordinarily touched by some basic shit about having a true self
/like “learning who one really is and whom one needs to be with in order to fully realize that”
/like “the arc of the comedy”!

Anonymous said: Whelp, you wrote another beautiful set of horoscopes, Madame Clairevoyant. Mine (Capricorn) was also exactly what I needed to read and made me cry at work because it has been a tough Tuesday and it felt like a sweet message from a friend. I would give you all the book deals if I could. <3 Sending hugs to you - thank you for writing very, very good things and for sharing them with us.

Ohhhhhhh anon you are an angel, this is THE NICEST message, thank you!!! 

trying not to be irresponsible and trying not to get scared but oh my GOD every job posting i see just looks like such a nightmare

therumpus:

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This is going to be a week made of small moments, it’s going to be a week for staying connected with the people in your world, it’s going to be a week for listening to what people tell you and listening to the quiet in between their words. It’s a week for enjoying other people’s company. It’s a week for being a little careful and a little kind with strangers in the grocery store, on the street, on the bus. Listen to the radio, listen to the night. Just being here can be enough.
 Taurus: This week you’ll be able to feel yourself changing, maybe, getting wiser and getting weirder. You’re growing every second, even when you’re bored at your job, even when you’re stuck in traffic, even when you’re asleep. You don’t need to rush and you don’t need to worry. You’re doing so much work all the time, so try to go a little easy on yourself sometimes. Give yourself time to feel quiet and time to feel slow and time just to sit outside your house and feel the night on your skin.
Gemini: This week, you aren’t going to be able to make everyone happy, and you aren’t going to be able make everyone love you just how you want, and you aren’t going to be able to sail through this week all neutral and untouched. You aren’t going to make everyone happy this week that’s ok. That’s where the magic is, that’s where you can find yourself, that’s where you can find the truths you really need. You can stop watching everyone watch you. You can stop worrying so much. You can live the way you need to.
Cancer: This week you can watch the sky change color, and you can watch the days slowly start to get colder, and you might get a little scared of the long nights ahead. It’s a good week to make sure you have the things you’re going to need. It’s a good week to clean your bathroom, clean your fridge, clean your room, do all your laundry. It’s a good week to hang pictures on your walls. It’s a good week for taking care of the space you live in, a good week for making a home.
Leo: It might feel like the world is shifting under your feet and it might feel like your bones are shifting inside your own body, this week. It’s not always easy, but try not to hold on to everything so tight. It’s okay to let the world shift and breathe. It’s okay to let your friends live in ways that you don’t understand and it’s okay to let the air move in ways you don’t understand. Let your thoughts get away from you sometimes; let them carry you to bright weird places.
Virgo: This is a week for making order of all the strange parts of your life, it’s a week for making meaning, it’s a week for sorting and naming and drawing maps. It’s a week for navigating the weird territory of your dreams and the weird landscapes of your desires. Try to keep moving and try to keep your eyes open. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can find what you need to guide you. Even if you don’t know what you want, you can stay honest, you can stay good, you can keep trying.
Libra: This is a week for letting your blood flow hot in your veins, it’s a week for letting your dreams overflow right out of your heart. It’s a week for getting worked up over how big the world is, how full, how exciting. There are so many bright clear days coming your way and it’s okay, this week, to get happy about it, to get so hopeful it’s a little embarrassing. Listen to Beyoncé and let this energy carry you through the week. Let this energy make you believe in everything good.
Scorpio: This week, if you need to, if you’re ready, you’ll be able to make things right, you’ll be able to make amends, you’ll be able to fix the things that have been wrong and the things that have been bothering you. It can be a week for apologies or a week for forgiveness, it can be a week for laying your heart bare, it can be a week for restoring the balance inside of you. Try to be brave, try to be honest and true to the people you care about, try to be kind to yourself.
Sagittarius: When your days start to move faster than you can even keep up with, try to take a break if you can. Try to stop moving for a second and just look around you. Give yourself time to check in with yourself, with the people you care about, with the place you live in. Give yourself time to get your bearings, give yourself time to catch your balance, give yourself time to breathe. It’s a week for remembering where you are, it’s a week for making adjustments to your path, it’s a week for finding north again.
Capricorn: Even when everything seems most strange, even your own words, even your own heart, even your own face, try not to beat yourself up so much. Even when all you can see is the empty space, even when all you can think of is the work left to do, try not to be so hard on yourself. You’re doing okay, you’re trying so hard, you’re doing so much better than you even know. Let your friends love you however you can. Let yourself live your funny strange life in this funny strange world.
Aquarius: This week, you can focus on the way the sun shines through your windows, or the way your hair looks when you first wake up, or the little green leaves on the plants in your windowsill. This week will be full of small gifts, full of these gentle reminders that you deserve every good thing in the world, every good thing there is. You don’t have to doubt your own thoughts, you don’t have to worry, just let the world around you fill up with possibilities. You can do anything you want. You deserve all the happiness there is.
Pisces: This is a week for trusting your skin and your guts, it’s a week for trusting the borders of your self, it’s a week for trusting the thing you know to be true. You don’t have to believe anything cruel and you don’t have to believe anything that rings heavy and false. You don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t care about you; you don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t want to see you grow into your best and happiest and most generous self.

You aren’t going to make everyone happy this week that’s ok. That’s where the magic is, that’s where you can find yourself, that’s where you can find the truths you really need. You can stop watching everyone watch you. You can stop worrying so much. You can live the way you need to.

Cancer: This week you can watch the sky change color, and you can watch the days slowly start to get colder, and you might get a little scared of the long nights ahead. It’s a good week to make sure you have the things you’re going to need. It’s a good week to clean your bathroom, clean your fridge, clean your room, do all your laundry. It’s a good week to hang pictures on your walls. It’s a good week for taking care of the space you live in, a good week for making a home.

Leo: It might feel like the world is shifting under your feet and it might feel like your bones are shifting inside your own body, this week. It’s not always easy, but try not to hold on to everything so tight. It’s okay to let the world shift and breathe. It’s okay to let your friends live in ways that you don’t understand and it’s okay to let the air move in ways you don’t understand. Let your thoughts get away from you sometimes; let them carry you to bright weird places.

Virgo: This is a week for making order of all the strange parts of your life, it’s a week for making meaning, it’s a week for sorting and naming and drawing maps. It’s a week for navigating the weird territory of your dreams and the weird landscapes of your desires. Try to keep moving and try to keep your eyes open. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can find what you need to guide you. Even if you don’t know what you want, you can stay honest, you can stay good, you can keep trying.

Libra: This is a week for letting your blood flow hot in your veins, it’s a week for letting your dreams overflow right out of your heart. It’s a week for getting worked up over how big the world is, how full, how exciting. There are so many bright clear days coming your way and it’s okay, this week, to get happy about it, to get so hopeful it’s a little embarrassing. Listen to Beyoncé and let this energy carry you through the week. Let this energy make you believe in everything good.

Scorpio: This week, if you need to, if you’re ready, you’ll be able to make things right, you’ll be able to make amends, you’ll be able to fix the things that have been wrong and the things that have been bothering you. It can be a week for apologies or a week for forgiveness, it can be a week for laying your heart bare, it can be a week for restoring the balance inside of you. Try to be brave, try to be honest and true to the people you care about, try to be kind to yourself.

Sagittarius: When your days start to move faster than you can even keep up with, try to take a break if you can. Try to stop moving for a second and just look around you. Give yourself time to check in with yourself, with the people you care about, with the place you live in. Give yourself time to get your bearings, give yourself time to catch your balance, give yourself time to breathe. It’s a week for remembering where you are, it’s a week for making adjustments to your path, it’s a week for finding north again.

Capricorn: Even when everything seems most strange, even your own words, even your own heart, even your own face, try not to beat yourself up so much. Even when all you can see is the empty space, even when all you can think of is the work left to do, try not to be so hard on yourself. You’re doing okay, you’re trying so hard, you’re doing so much better than you even know. Let your friends love you however you can. Let yourself live your funny strange life in this funny strange world.

Aquarius: This week, you can focus on the way the sun shines through your windows, or the way your hair looks when you first wake up, or the little green leaves on the plants in your windowsill. This week will be full of small gifts, full of these gentle reminders that you deserve every good thing in the world, every good thing there is. You don’t have to doubt your own thoughts, you don’t have to worry, just let the world around you fill up with possibilities. You can do anything you want. You deserve all the happiness there is.

Pisces: This is a week for trusting your skin and your guts, it’s a week for trusting the borders of your self, it’s a week for trusting the thing you know to be true. You don’t have to believe anything cruel and you don’t have to believe anything that rings heavy and false. You don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t care about you; you don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t want to see you grow into your best and happiest and most generous self.
