Ramblings.

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.

— Lao Tzu (via yogachocolatelove)

capricorn have an obsession with repetitiveness and focus their minds solely on the task at hand. they are usually the last ones to leave the office and the first ones to show up. though they can be strict they are intrinsically generous and sweet people. because they are early they will buy everyone’s morning coffee

Well if that isn’t the truest thing I’ve read

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

I have my sun and venus (scorpio) in the twelfth house. Is this a good combination or a bad one? from stuff3210

it will be as wicked as you make it or as much as a nightmare

individuals are reduced, labeled, and treated like objects most everywhere they go, but in astrology…. , they should be seen in their fullness, as alive, genius, contradictory complicated, gifted, and whole. Things were once separated into ‘good’ or ‘bad’, ‘malefic’ or ‘benefic’… now we are beginning to learn that every archetypal measure or structure is all intrinsic to the functioning of the person and it relates to their free will and exertion over their traits that decides if it is ‘good or bad’, not beforehand
