Recently, I rediscovered my 55-200mm lens for my camera. I used the lens for most of the pictures from my recent family vacation. Still learning how to manage the focus, but I’m proud of what I took. Let me know which one is your favorite! Some of these pictures are from my iPhone, taken in portrait mode.

Understanding My Astrology Signs

Today, I am going to talk about my love for astrology that will lead into a description of my sun, rising, and moon sign. It has definitely become a trend to be into astrology due to meme culture, which is a good thing! Finding a way to relate to world at large, using Astrology or not, does not harm and ultimately makes you feel like a good person.

Ever since I was little, I had a deep appreciation for space. I loved to study the planets. My mom would take me to the library, and I would borrow all the VHS tapes about the planets. Space may be the most beautiful thing ever, in my opinion. I loved the idea of having a constellation that helped define basic characteristics about myself. It’s just so cool. I love to learn what signs people are, even if I’m just talking to them in the coffee shop line lol. I don’t know, I’m just OBSESSED.

My birthday is October 7th, which makes me a Libra! Libras are the best. Don’t believe me? Look up famous Libras. Libras are the only sign in the entire zodiac sign not ruled by an animal. The whole deal with Libras is they are all about fairness. They thrive in environments that are equal with lots of communication. Ironically, Libras are known to be anti-confrontational due to ruining the harmony in the relationships. When Libras do let out their confrontational side, it can be ugly. Libras are all about beauty, so for them getting ugly is not their forte. Libra equals balance.

Anyway, my cousin told me about having a rising sign in ADDITION to my sun sign. She described the rising sign as how you appear to the world. Of course, I had to find out what mine is! My mom loves to tell the story about my birth, since I was seven days late and asleep during labor. She reminds me of my birth time a lot. I go google and type in “Rising Sign Calculator.” Put my birthday and birth time. The page takes a second to load, and reveals my rising sign to be…Pisces! Since Pisces are the last sign of the zodiac, they are the most selfless. Don’t forget this, because it will becoming ironic later. Through some research on Youtube, I learned more what it means to be a Pisces Rising. Hannah’s Elsewhere is the channel I go to a lot to get a lot of my information. She said that Pisces Rising are very giving, almost to a fault. Couldn’t be more true for me. Also, she mentioned that Pisces rising are very intuitive, emotional, and empathetic. Okay, good qualities, nice. Of course, every sign has a dark side. Pisces risings can be “know it alls” and are more likely to abuse substances. I think it’s very important to learn about the dark side. Having negative qualities does not make you a negative person! Just because you feel “bad” rather down or very negative, learning about how to help you feel more positive about the imperfections will only lead you to be happier with who you are. I needed to get that out to feel better.

Ok, so I’m a Libra Sun with a Pisces Rising. I come off as a dreamy, know it all. Once you talk or listen to me, you learn that I’m a Libra in the true definition of the word. How I appear and how I act, what more can there be?

WELL, I found out quickly after finding out my rising sign that I also have a MOON SIGN. OMG! Basically, your moon sign rules emotion and the side of you that you shield off from the world. Only a selective few people who truly understand you see your moon sign. I go back to google to find a moon sign calculator. Punch my birth information back in. Wait a second to learn…I have an Aries Moon. WAIT, WHAT?

I think I have always given Aries a bad rap. I blame my little sister, who is an Aries. Since Aries are the first of the Zodiac, they are the most involved with themselves. (Remember how Pisces are the most selfless. Now, you know my irony). Aries are a fire sign, so they are filled with energy. Aries are hardworking, driven, and passionate. Although Aries have a lot of positive qualities, their negative qualities are the most annoying to deal with. Aries are often very selfish and do not care about others’ needs. The sooner they understand this, the sooner they can collectively take steps into understanding their elder signs. They can learn a thing or two from them. Having Aries as my Moon placement ultimately means that I have the emotional temperament of a child. I can be moody and whiny, but I can quickly get out of that with the simplest thing. I resented having this moon placement for a long time. I don’t hate Aries at all. I just hated that I had these qualities that clashed with my other signs.

What does that teach me? My Aries Moon tells me that I have an innocence within me that has the power to make me selfish and bossy. However, I have my Libra Sun to equal out those qualities. I am constantly working on being a better person. My chart placements just scream that I am an emotional person and I need to keep them under control. I benefit from expression and creativity.

You may be asking how I relate astrology to film. Well, when I enter the early stages of writing, I like to figure out my character’s astrology sign as a way to determine their basic characteristics. Since I know a lot about each signs and how they act, I apply that knowledge to character building. It really helps my creative process for better, more effective writing.
