Men of the Zodiac

Disclaimer: I am not an astrologer, so this post is only based on my personal observations and experiences. Again, these are just my opinions, so you can choose to not take this seriously ;)

Aries Man

(I haven’t had many interactions with Aries men so I don’t know what to say about them yet.)

Taurus Man

The Taurus man is usually very handsome, but also very stubborn that it can get annoying. Out of all the Taurus men I have known, I only get along well with two of them. He will always insist on what he thinks is right, and will disregard your opinion even though you’re also right. He wants to control things. Rarely open-minded. The older and intelligent ones can be open-minded and accepting, but Taurus men are usually set on what they believe is right. He can also be too prideful and arrogant, and never ever admit his (obvious) mistakes. However, when he is in his pleasant, Venusian mood, he is nice to be with. Beauty is very important for him. This man can be very loyal, loving, stable, and sensual - in short, the perfect man, if you are okay with his stubbornness. Also, since they are stubborn, if a Taurus man likes you, he really likes you. Even if you reject him, he will pretend that you did not reject him and will still pursue you. A Taurus man may also think that he is handsomer than he really is.

Gemini Man

They are very talkative and fun to be with. However, almost all Gemini men I know cheat. They also lie, and make up stuff just to impress you and feel that you are inferior to them. They are tricksters and when you are with them, you don’t always see or hear the truth. They also love to gossip.

Cancer Man

These men are very sweet and emotional. They can really baby you. You’d fall in love with how they nurture you. They nurture the people that they love, but sometimes I think that that’s also how they seduce someone. As you form a relationship with them, most of the time they’re still thinking about their ex. They may be in love with their ex even though they’re with another woman already. And when you become their ex, they may try to come back to you many times even though for you it’s really over. When they make a mistake or something goes wrong, they use this form of manipulation wherein you would always look like the bad guy and that you should always feel sorry for them, even though they are the ones in the wrong. They’re manipulative in that way. They would turn around the situation and they get away with their mistakes by making you feel sorry for them. However, I think a higher-evolved Cancer man can really make you feel loved and protected more than any other sign. He can smother and baby you and melt you every time.

Leo Man

Leo men are very charming. Women like them. They want a woman that they can show off to other people. However, when people make up rumors about you that are not true in order to turn him off, he will really drop you in a minute because he doesn’t want to be infected with the “bad” reputation that you have. And when you become prettier in the years to come, he will remind people that you have been together just so he can perfume his name even though he has hurt you in the past.

Virgo Man

A mature Virgo man is very trustworthy and reliable. He is looking for the woman that he can be with forever. So far, I love the energy of all the Virgo men that I have known, since they love to help, they want you to improve, they want the best for you, and he is a problem-fixer. They also have that mysterious aura, but a bit different from the aura of a Scorpio man. It's a reliable but mysterious aura.

Libra Man

Libra men are charming, and are often the “pretty boys.” Most of the time, they have mastered the art of seduction. They will seduce you and you’d think that they wanted to have a serious relationship with you. And when you have fallen for their trap, they can just vanish and be mean to you. They can be really ruthless playboys (or fuck boys) underneath the sweet boy-next-door fa├žade. Also, they can be vainer than you! I got to know a Libra man once and I thought he was vainer than me (I am a Libra girl). They can also be very narcissistic when it comes to their attractiveness to the opposite sex. They can act all nice and charming when they want to attract you, and they can just treat you like trash if they decided they don’t want you anymore that you may wonder if everything that happened was all an act.

Scorpio Man

They are attractive men with a mysterious aura. Sometimes, even though you know that they are playing you, you’d still want to be consumed by those hungry eyes. There’s just something magnetic about him. He doesn’t say a lot. And he always seems to understand whatever problems you have.

Sagittarius Man

They don’t usually like to commit. They like to dabble on many women at once. It’s hard to make them commit to you, but when they do – uhm…they still would cheat on you. If they are really in love with you, he may just use other women for sex. But it’s still cheating. I think they’re good people deep down inside, but they can’t resist temptation. The Sagittarius man also loves to teach. Therefore, his ego might be bruised when you are smarter than him, when he can’t understand what you say, and when you have a better educational background than him. He hates feeling dumb. He may get hurt and defensive if you accidentally make him feel dumb.

Capricorn Man

I think the Capricorn man is the most serious and reliable of them all. If he wants you, he really wants you. What you see is what you get with this guy. He might prioritize building himself up at first, and might leave you if he still feels insufficient enough or not yet ready to be the father of your children.

Aquarius Man

They are very great friends to have around. However, I don’t think they really know how to handle a relationship very well. If you are their girlfriend, they will treat you very differently from their friends. Their love for you is conditional while their love for their friends is unconditional. They can be bad and nasty to you while being angelic in front of their friends. Therefore, when you reveal how nasty they were to you, nobody may believe you. Instead, they’d think that there’s something wrong with you because Mr. Aquarius is very friendly to everyone. I kind of think that they lack the emotional depth that is needed in a committed relationship. However, they are usually very loyal when committed, unless you are dealing with the kind of Aquarius man that has no conscience.

Pisces Man

What I am about to say about Pisces men may not be that reliable since I only had one Pisces men whom I interacted with, and that was my former suitor. Pisces men are very sensitive that it’s really annoying. Even more annoying than Cancer men when they get moody. They can say something offensive to you without considering your feelings. But when you retort with an equally offensive remark, he can throw a temper tantrum, suddenly block you, and then beg for your forgiveness. He has a bit of a feminine temperament which can disappoint women sometimes. It can also feel like he doesn’t know what he wants. He can pursue you, control and manipulate you a bit, and not hear from him for a week or two. When you finally get tired or his flakiness and femininity, he would make you feel like a bad person for “hurting” him.

so you want to be a writer? by Charles Bukowski


if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
typewriter
searching for words,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it for money or
fame,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit there and
rewrite it again and again,
don’t do it.
if it’s hard work just thinking about doing it,
don’t do it.
if you’re trying to write like somebody else,
forget about it.


if you have to wait for it to roar out of
you,
then wait patiently.
if it never does roar out of you,
do something else.

if you have to read it to your wife
or your girlfriend or your boyfriend
or your parents or to anybody at all,
you’re not ready.

don’t be like so many writers,
don’t be like so many thousands of
people who call themselves writers,
don’t be dull and boring and
pretentious, don’t be consumed with self-
love.
the libraries of the world have
yawned themselves to
sleep
over your kind.
don’t add to that.
don’t do it.
unless it comes out of
your soul like a pocket,
unless being still would
drive you to madness or
suicide or murder,
don’t do it.
unless the sun inside you is
burning your gut,
don’t do it.

when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by
itself and it will keep doing it
until you die or it dies in you.

there is no other way.

and there never was.

The Philippines in the Sky (Dream)


Me: I dreamt that I was with my mother and we were looking at white dresses for my graduation. These dresses were only worth fifty pesos so I was happy about that and I asked by mother to buy me one. However, she did not want to. And I cannot understand why since the dresses were really cheap and they are exactly what the female graduates here wear. Then, we both went outside (it was already nighttime) in an open space where people were sitting on chairs. I am not sure what the event was, but the night sky has the map of the Philippines on it (instead of moon and stars) and it was very vivid. It was as if the Philippines itself was up there. It was a bit strange. Then, my mother asked me about Venus retrograde and Mercury retrograde. I explained to her and she agreed with what I said. Suddenly, there was lightning in the sky and some monkeys and other stuff were jumping in the sky, especially on the Philippine map.

Lawrence: Seeing the Philippines in the sky can mean you want more out of your life while living there
And you can see more opportunities when you see your country in the sky.
Mom not wanting to buy you the dress means she wants to make decisions for you instead of you making decisions, asking about astrology might mean she wants to know more about what you know about it.
I know your mother in life doesn’t know a thing about Mercury retrograde so that’s a weird dream, she knows that word, I think she would just ask about astrology period. Hmmm 

My Neptune in 5th House (Astrology)


I have Neptune in the 5th house, and I don’t know if it’s a good thing. Sometimes it is, sometimes it is not. This placement makes someone see life through rose-colored glasses, and be disillusioned in the matters of creativity and romance. But before I go on to my personal experience of having my natal Neptune in the 5th house, I have to share first what the internet says about this astrological placement. This is Neptune, according to Cafeastrology:
Neptune’s position by house in the natal chart (that is, the house that Neptune occupies in the birth chart) reveals an area of life where we tend to ignore or avoid reality. We attach spirituality to the areas of life ruled by the house. Often, we chase dreams and illusions in these areas of life.

I have it in my fifth house. Fifth house is the house of Leo, the house that rules creativity, romance, children, the inner child, and pleasure. Therefore, when the planet Neptune is placed there, this is how it manifests:

The indulgences will be rather trivial and transient. They will usually involve some kind of make-believe; nor are they likely to be particularly vigorous, still less violent, and they should fascinate temporarily, rather than create any serious interest.
The native whose native is in the fifth house will probably be very curious in the matter of love. He will fall in love with strange and curious people, and he will manifest his affections in a very unusual way. Spirituality of love is particularly indicated in the best cases.
  
Neptune in the 5th house often has strong acting ability, and this combination also indicates creative talent. The individual is usually highly romantic, and they can be enchanting and seductive as the siren. There is a longing and willingness to abandon the self and be swept away by love, and those with this placement are in love with love. However, the person has to be careful not to place romantic love on unrealistic pedestals or chase unavailable partners, and they often fall in love with the image of someone rather than the real person.
Neptune here can also manifest in the longing to have a child and to feel totally fulfilled. Neptune in this sphere may also suffer disappointment and disillusionment when lovers or even children fail to live up to their dreams. Various people with this combination get themselves involved in unobtainable love affairs, and they can be extremely easy to seduce. Yet, it is said that through sacrifice and suffering the artist emerges.
There are no boundaries where Neptune is placed, and so it is easy for them to enter into the imaginative and make-believe world of a child.

You are an imaginative and creative person with a strong sense of drama. You are inspired by art and feel compelled to express yourself in a fantastic or dramatic manner. You could be an excellent actor. You might also be an especially creative teacher or caregiver, perhaps drawn to helping children with special needs. You have an exceptionally strong need to be appreciated, particularly on romantic and creative levels. Your love life involves a lot of fantasy, and often your deep need for drama can lead you to see things that you want to see. Your romantic perceptions may not be accurate as a result.
  
And last but not the least, this is the description of Astrolocherry – and it is so far the most descriptive, and maybe accurate, description of the Neptune in the 5th house placement:
With misty Neptune clouding the fifth house of bedazzlement, the individual born under this starry array will seek to lose himself in the swirls of a paintbrush, the lyrics of song, the petals of romance and the ballad of the theatre. He may perceive himself as being an illusive character in the play of life, starring in his own divine showcase, and idealizing everything from love to his own self-image. This is curious mask makeup, role play in sexual fantasy and music written in psychotic states.
His redemption is creativity, art, affection and the trance of blinding lights. He is like a microcosm of the Divine Source, emanating the creative spirit that underpins all material and non material. His inner child is an extension of heaven.
Fifth house Neptune people are soaked in a rainbow bath of delight, hypnotic hallucination, mythical dreamwork and confusion about his own single consciousness. He is skilled at conjuring the riches of romance and experiences trouble attenuating own impulses when it comes to self amusement. The individual’s sense of beguilement in the world and the expression of his own inner child’s laughter symbolizes how he abandons the real world to escape in Neptune reverie and fugue.
  
Now, this is how I experience it.


Besides having a dominant Libra in my chart, I know that Neptune in the 5th house is also largely responsible for my idealism. I am very drawn to art – art that is kind of optimistic, whimsical, ethereal, and romantic. When listening to music, singing, painting, or acting, I feel very high. I feel like I automatically drown into Neptunian goodness. Through any creative endeavor, I can escape the ugliness of reality and dive into the portals of beauty that Neptune has to offer.

However, this Piscean/Neptunian escapism is not good for the long term. Dwelling too much in reveries and ideals and mental utopias results in procrastination and disasters in real life. With this placement, (perhaps also because of my Saturn in Pisces), it is so easy to fall back into my inner world, in my locked room, and be a hermit. It is very, very easy to get lost in dreams and illusions and not set out to make them a reality anymore. It’s good to connect to our own inner spiritual world, but sometimes, for the Neptune in the 5th person, the line between reality and fantasy gets blurry. The person can easily get deluded by his fantasies.

This is especially true in the romance department. I have been with men who are a bit “hopeless.” What I mean by that is that they are the complete opposite of the practical and highly ambitious Saturn – they are the hopeless, drunk, and destroyed kind of Neptune but thanks to my Neptune in the 5th house, I was so blinded when I fell in love with each of them. I saw each of them as different kinds of Greek gods, but in reality they were parasites and dependents who don’t have ambition, are not letting themselves get out of their victim mentality, paying more attention to temporary pleasures rather than their studies and potential careers, and are not having the ability to give me and my future children a bright future.

There is also something obviously wrong with me, since I can’t see my past lovers (or maybe even present and future lovers) for who they really are. That’s how Neptune works in the 5th house. I keep thinking that they are better than what they really are, and that they can still improve despite being unable to show that they want to be better versions of themselves. I am also very curious in romance. It’s strange how I think that every fling or relationship that I had is a different fairy tale every time. Yes, Neptune is crazy in that way. Because I have even involved myself with unavailable men: one is a very handsome man (but rotten inside, I’m sorry) who had a girlfriend at that time, while the other is a married British Arab who wanted me to become his second wife. Any sensible woman would steer clear of any man who’s taken, but I was still seduced. My Neptune in the 5th loved the mystery, secrecy, and challenge. However, in the end, I was still left heartbroken – which just made me drown deeper into the Neptunian madness.

Recently, what breaks my heart every time is being ghosted every now and then. However, I try to pretend that ghostings are not traumatic for me because they’d think that I was desperate. All I want is a serious relationship. Unfortunately, uncertainties in the romance department really distract me from the reality that I should be facing right now. I should be focused on finishing my research, studying more, and just planning my future career. However, when someone knocks on the door of my heart (this is getting corny), my Neptune in the 5th is just so curious about what might happen, what kind of world would be opened to me by this person, and so on. I just can’t get enough of romance. Although it confuses me (Neptune is also the planet of confusion), I still get happy sometimes because of my own fantasies and delusions.

And that is my Neptune in the 5th House. :)
