♌️ Sun Series: Leo ♌️


Hello and welcome back to Astrology Thursday!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Per usual a lot of the information on this first page is going to be pretty similar to what I put on my other sun series articles. (What is a sun sign, more about the series, etc.) So if you wanna skip ahead to the Leo part go ahead.

Every Thursday I do an article about something Astrology related. I’m starting with going through the sun signs, then the moon signs, then the rising signs, and proceeding from there through the planets and houses. I know that a lot of people don’t believe in astrology and that’s fine, these articles aren’t gonna be about convincing you. (Although I probably will try sometime in the future). I just find astrology fascinating and informative. I’ve also discovered a huge community of like-minded individuals who have the same beliefs about it as I do and this is my blog and I can do what I want here.

So let's get into some astrology shall we?

First, if you’ve never heard of a sun sign here’s the basics. Each astrology sign holds unique properties which influence our lives in different ways. Although people often refer to each of these signs as ‘their sign’, the correct term is ‘sun sign’ which means the position of the sun in the Zodiac the moment you were born.

Overall Astrology is extremely complex and the sun sign is just a very small part of who you are as a person. If you are a Gemini and don’t really relate to these traits it’s likely because you have many strongly placed other signs in your chart that dull the quality of your Gemini sun.

A sun sign is basically the sign that governs your personality and is a reflection of your soul, your ego, your inner self and determines your basic approach to life. You also have your moon sign and your rising sign which contribute significantly to your character, dreams, relationships, and temperament.

Astrology has an impact on your approach to life and how you respond to any given situation. For instance, if your sun sign is Cancer you may use emotional appeal to get things done the way you want and generally just as the crab walks sideways you take an indirect approach. If you were an Aries however, you would take a more direct and physical approach to get things done.

You also have a moon and rising sign, which - very basically, breaks down to your moon is your emotional self and your rising is how you appear to the outside world. It's also your gut reaction to things. For an Aries rising, your typically knee-jerk reaction to things would be to get angry.

Sun Sign key words: basic nature, basic personality traits, values, the “big picture” of your overall personality, consciousness, basic identity, basic ego

NOTE: You are a Leo Sun sign if you are born between July 22nd and August 22nd although the exact time varies every year so if you were born near the transition you should check to be sure what your sun sign is. I really like the website astro.com. Just type in your birthday, time of birth, place of birth, and it will give you your accurate sun, moon, and rising sign.


♌️ Sun Series: Leo ♌️

Leo is the 5th sign in the zodiac. It is a masculine sign and their symbol is the lion. It is a fire sign, the other fire signs are Sagittarius and Aries.

Obviously not every Leo is exactly the same, your behavior and character is greatly influenced by the entirety of your birth chart. However here are some basic traits of a Leo.

Leos love to be talked about and love when it’s all about them. They are very hard to dislike. For the most part they are really easy going and easy to get along with. Although sometimes they can be a bit too much and hard to handle. They are ruled by the sun, which is considered a planet in astrology so they are the center of the universe. And they believe this. A lot of them wouldn’t admit this but deep down they would always put themselves first. A lot of Leos get shit for being too selfish and full of themselves. However this is something that other signs can really learn from Leos.

An unevolved Leo can be narcissistic and manipulative so beware of the bad ones. This usually occurs in younger Leos who haven’t had the time to grow up yet. If this is the case beware of entering into a relationship with one of these unevolved Leos. It takes time for a Leo to tone down their ego enough to care for someone other than themselves. An unevolved Leo can take too much without giving enough in return. They might not see that they took too much from you because in their mind they deserve it. They need to be with a strong partner that can stand up for themselves and demand that they be treated as an equal. It may take some time for a Leo to understand that they are selfish and an even longer time for them to change this behavior. Once they’ve evolved a bit, they are very kind, generous, and loving people. They are a fixed sign so once they commit to someone, they are fully committed.

They are incredibly independent and like to make their own way in life. They are very good and taking care of themselves and are not the type to need a relationship. Many prefer to be single. They know how to take care of themselves and make themselves happy. They are always their own number one in their hearts. Which is really how it should be for all of us. Selfishness can be an issue though. Leos need to learn to give TLC to the people around them as well. Especially in relationships, Leos can forget to give attention to their other person.

They are very confident and have no apologies for being themselves. They don’t care if people don’t like them. Which is something we can all learn from them. They are typically very good looking people and usually have very nice looking hair (think Lion's mane). Their hair is usually the dominant feature for them.

They hate to admit when they’re wrong. Throughout life they need to learn to tone down their own ego. They like to be center stage and center of attention. They are natural performers. Many of them are actors, singers, entertainers of some kind. They have a strong desire and drive to be successful. Fire signs in general are very competitive and driven people. Leo is a fixed sign so once they set their goals on something. They will see it through to the end.

They are more strongly affected by failure than any other sign. They really need to succeed in life and failing at something can really knock them down for a while. They thrive off of being the best. They can become depressed if they’ve failed at something but that doesn’t usually last for too long because they are very quick to get back up. They are determined at won’t stop pursuing their goals if they’ve had a setback.

They are the type to usually be dressed up and wear makeup everyday. They like looking good, and they want people to look at them. Selfie King and Queens. A good way to get a Leo to like you, is to compliment them. They like to spend their money on flashy, nice things.

They are the best friends to have. They are just warm and loving people. Extremely friendly, supportive and encouraging of their friends goals. No matter how weird it is, a Leo friend will support you. Because Leos have this non-apologetic attitude they don’t judge other people. They are some of the kindest people in the zodiac. They really don’t have a mean bone in their body. They’re very forgiving and up lifting. Not the type to say something nasty about people they don’t know.

They are extremely helpful to have when you’re feeling down. They will coach you back and help you regain confidence again. If you don’t put in work and attentiveness into your relationship with a Leo they will forget about you. It’s not that they don’t love you, they’re just very in the moment. If you’re not really active in their life they won’t go out of their way to see you. You’re the one that has to make an effort with a Leo. They’re the type of friend that you won’t see for a long time and then when you do see each other it’s like you're just picking up where you left off.

They have no time for mean and petty people. When they get mad beware. They are very competitive. They are extremely loyal and if someone insults their friend or someone they care about they won’t hold back. They have an extremely aggressive side that really only comes out when they’re angry.

They like to go out, they like to have fun, they like to be in a group. They have an extreme struggle with jealousy. Such as if someone got first place and they got second, if someone has something they want. Serious relationship jealousy.

They are normally very energetic and flirty. They like to be single and may have a hard time settling down and making a commitment. It’s just because they like to do things themselves. They don’t like asking for favors, they don’t want handouts, they want to take care of themselves. However when they do finally make a commitment, they’re one of the most loyal signs. They like to be single because when they are in a relationship, they want to be 100% loyal and expect the same in return. They usually fall in love with people that you wouldn’t expect. Usually with people who aren’t like them. They just see different sides of people than the rest of us do. They see the things that most people miss.

They do not like authority, they do not like rules, and they will not be bossed around. Don’t ever try and tell a Leo what to do. They have a very carefree nature to them. They just want to do what they want to do. It’s almost childish, Fire signs in general have a childishness to them. Leos are the kings of being childish however this isn’t always a bad thing. They are just fun and playful. They usually have a childish/immature sense of humor.

They have a tendency to be over dramatic. This is just how they express themselves and there's no use in telling them to calm down. They want to experience life, and enjoy themselves. They like to travel, see the world and be adventurous. They crave adventure. Their carefree nature can bother some people. They just don’t take life seriously. They avoid talking about serious things or feelings.

Every sign has certain traits they bring to the world, Leos bring their self-centeredness, confidence, kindness, and their loving and adventurous nature.

Leo Keywords: courageous, carefree, creative, romantic, bossy, generous, flashy, proud, beautiful, dramatic, social, trusting, kind, ambitious, warm-hearted, leader, loyal, encouraging,

๐Ÿ“How Freeganism is Combating Wastefullness in America ๐Ÿ“


I was first introduced to Freeganism in my high school english class. My teacher put on a documentary about people who live completely off food they find in dumpsters. And no they weren’t homeless or completely destitute. They chose to live that way. I was quickly enamoured by these people who are so committed to sustainability that they dig through garbage just to say Fuck you to the consumption based economy. I love it. 

(You can find the documentary Here.)

Freeganism is an ideology that believes in the minimal consumption of resources, particularly through the recovering (dumpster diving) of wasted goods. The word Freegan is a combination of the word “free” and “vegan.” This doesn’t mean that all Freegans are vegan, this just refers to someone who gets their food and resources from dumpsters. It may sound like a strange practice but there are huge communities of people who get all of their food completely from trash. It's not a lifestyle driven by economic necessity, but out of principle to reuse resources as to not contribute to practices that are destroying the planet.



Freegans take a political stance of not wanting to participate in the economy (for various reasons). They don’t want to add more demand to an already extremely wasteful economy. They try to buy as little as possible, and try to get the things they need for free. They are anti-capitalist and anti-consumerist.

Their main motivating factor is to help create a more sustainable world, and to combat our over consumptive, resource destroying economy. It’s no secret that the typical American lifestyle is unsustainable, and threatens the future of life on this planet. The type of society that throws away this much food doesn’t value the earth or the work it takes to produce it. It is to our own personal detriment that we continue the process. Millions of people in the world go hungry, but in the US even our trash cans are full of food.

In America we leave food left to rot in dumpsters yet we still have people who don’t get enough. And on top of that, in some cases it’s illegal to rescue this food and give it to people who are hungry. Some companies even throw out better food than what their own employees can afford, and on top of that, bar them from taking any of the unsold food home (Williams, 2016. Full article here). 



“One in seven American households don’t have steady access to healthy meals, yet roughly 40 percent of all the food in the U.S. goes uneaten. Some of this food is composted or turned into animal feed, but most of it winds up in landfills, according to an analysis from the Natural Resources Defense Council” ( “The Progressive Increase of Food Waste in America and Its Environmental Impact”). We’re feeding our landfills as much as we’re feeding our country.

The human species started out as a foraging species. Freegans argue that this is exactly what our species is designed for. Traveling in bands, collecting goods for their use, and sharing them within communities. They argue that Freeganism is just a modern and urbanized adaptation form of life that our species was designed for. However there is a bit of conflict when it comes to this practice. What people think is just, and what is legal.

Laws vary state to state and even city to city but in many cases dumpsters and the items in it are considered property to whoever owns the dumper and by taking things out of it is considered stealing. Some states also strictly prohibit eating roadkill while other states encourage it. This just goes to show how widely varied views and laws are about free goods.

Freegan is a broad word and I don’t want to overgeneralize Freegans to just dumpster eaters. They don’t all fit into just one box, many people call themselves Freegans and live very different lifestyles. Some Freegans haven’t bought food in years, others only partially live off scavenged food. While others don’t even get their food from dumpsters at all and grow their own food. Some are vegan, some aren’t. Some live completely off the grid while others live more “mainstream” lifestyles who dumpster dive periodically for goods. It's a broad brush and is completely different depending on where you live. To narrow minded people it may seem disgusting but honestly the only thing that’s disgusting about it is the amount of food that gets thrown away.

In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have trash that's filled with edible food but that’s not the world we live in. I’m not saying everyone who’s reading this has to become Freegan, I’m not, but I would like to encourage people to be more mindful about wastefulness and try to live a more sustainable lifestyle. It really isn’t that hard to live a more sustainable way of life. If you don’t even know where to start, I have an article out called, “29 Ways to be More Sustainable.” They’re very simple and easy tips. Feel free to take a look and put some into practice. A little goes a long way. Don’t underestimate the power you have to have an impact on the world. Try to make it a good one ๐Ÿ’›Katie

๐Ÿ›ฉ The Reincarnation of a WW2 Fighter Pilot ๐Ÿ›ฉ


I don’t know about you but I love a good reincarnation story. This story I’m gonna share today is just wild and incredibly convincing. It will leave you speechless. It’s the story of a boy named James Leininger. There’s actually a whole book dedicated to this story called Soul Survivor. The book obviously would have a lot more information than I’m gonna include in this article so if you wanna learn more about this story go check it out. This is gonna be a wild ride so strap in. 

You can find the audiobook Here. 

James Leininger was born April 10th, 1998 to Bruce and Andrea Leininger. When James was very young (around 2) he was really really obsessed with airplanes. Much more than the average kid would obsess about something and he knew a lot about war planes in particular. James' parents thought it was a little odd that their son wouldn’t play with any other toys except planes but they didn’t think too much of it at first because a lot of little boys are obsessed with certain things at that young age. It started to get a little weird when their very young son would correct them on plane terminology. He just knew too much about planes to be normal. How could a 2 year old know things like what a drop tank is? He would say little things about planes that he just shouldn’t know all the time.

James' father took him to the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Texas and he says that he could not believe how mesmerized his son was by the whole thing. His behaviour was just strange. Most 2 year olds would probably run through the exhibit and not really look very closely at anything but James wanted to spend hours at the WW2 exhibit in particular. Bruce (his father) would even try to lead him away but James would always wonder back to the WW2 exhibit. Eventually they had been at the WW2 exhibit for 3 hours and Bruce finally tried to take him away and James had a huge fit. To get him to leave Bruce bought him a video of the Navy Blue Angels and Bruce says after this James had the video on all the time.

James was extremely interested in planes and extremely interested in WW2. The thing is James' family doesn’t come from a military or aviation background at all, which is why his intense obsession in these things was just kind of strange. He seemed to have a basic knowledge of the military and aviation when there was just no way he could have known these things.

A little bit after James second birthday he started to have these crazy nightmares. Which is pretty common for kids to have nightmares but James was having these things on a whole different level. He would act traumatized after experiencing these. He would go into full on night terrors where he would kick and scream in his sleep not even knowing he was dreaming. His parents started to get really concerned because these nightmares would happen 4-6 times a week. They would always find him lying on his back kicking up at the ceiling and when his mom would ask what he’s dreaming about he would say, “airplane crash plane on fire little man can’t get out!” It was always the same nightmare over and over again.

His parents were extremely concerned and couldn’t figure out why it was always the same dream and why it was so intense all the time. The first person to think that this might have been reincarnation was James’s grandma. She said that maybe he’s just experiencing a past life memory.

If you don’t know anything about past life memories they typically occur in kids between the ages of 2-5 because that’s when we’re closest to the other side. They haven’t had the cultural experiences and the conditioning of experiences yet. So their memories are fresher. Usually the memories begin to fade during the ages of 5-7. Past life memories are not a rare phenomenon and if you start to look into it they happen extremely frequently.

James’s mother took her mother’s advice and started asking him about these dreams he was having. Jame’s father however was extremely skeptical of the reincarnation theory. He was very religious and didn’t think there was any way that this could be a case of reincarnation.

When James’s mother started asking him about these dreams James said that in the dream he was flying a plane that took off from a boat but was shot down and crashed. When she asked who shot him down he would look at her like it was obvious and say, “the Japanese.” (Keep in mind, this kid is 2.) His parents were baffled. They asked him who was the pilot and he said, “James.” They thought he was just confused and saying his own name. When they asked what plane he flew he would say, “A Corsair.” They looked it up and it was a real plane. He would also talk about how the Corsair had issues with landing, that it would sometimes vear to the left, and that the tires would go flat easily. Which is a very specific thing for a two year old to say. So then they asked what was the name of the boat and he said, “Natoma.” Which was an aircraft carrier that was stationed in the Pacific Ocean in WW2. Bruce was still skeptical and thought that maybe it was all just coincident and he started to really focus on disproving this reincarnation theory. He was determined to prove that this wasn’t happening and to find a logical explanation for all of this.

James would draw pictures of planes all the time and would always sign his drawings “James 3.” No one knew why he always signed “James 3” so one day his dad asked him and he said, “Because I’m the third James.” His parents didn’t really know what to make of that.

James would also do weird things with his GI Joe toys. He named them Leon, Billy and Walter. And his parents had no idea where he got these names from. So Bruce asked him one day why he named them that and James said, “well those were the first guys who met me in heaven when I got there.”


… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


His parents kept pressing him for information and he started talking about a man named Jack Larson. Which was pretty specific. One day his dad was reading a history book called The Battle for Iwo Jima and James happened to see a map in the book. James looked up at him and said, “Daddy, that’s where my plane was shot down.”

After this Bruce started to believe in this theory a bit. He found an organization online called the Natoma Bay Association and that’s where he connected with a man called Leo Piet. Leo was a radio man in WW2 on the Natoma aircraft carrier. At first Bruce didn’t say anything about his son or anything that was happening with that. He just started asking Leo some questions to confirm or deny some of James’s claims. Leo said that there weren't any Corsairs on the carrier but that they did do several missions near Iwo Jima. He then asked Leo if he knew of a man named Jack Larson who might’ve been on the ship, and Leo did. However he said that he hadn’t seen Jack Larson since the war. So Bruce started to track down Jack but he just couldn’t find anything.

He searched through government records of soldiers who died on the Natoma but came up empty handed. Bruce eventually went to a Natoma Bay convention and there he found that Jack Larson was a real person and that he was in fact still alive and was living in Springfield, Arkansas.

James has said that his plane had been hit head on and had shown his father exactly where he was hit, right in the engine of the plane. When they managed to track Jack Larson down, he told them that he had been James Huston Jr ‘s wingman and was flying in a plane right next to him and watched his plane get hit head on and crash.

James Huston Jr. was a fighter pilot in the Pacific during WW2. He was stationed on the USS Natoma and flew for 5 months before he was shot down. He died at the age of 21 in Chichi Iwa. Right where James Leininger had pointed out in his father's book. James Huston Jr was actually James Huston the third, making him the third James.

Bruce started to admit that there's only so much denying he could do and really started to believe this but there was one thing that still didn’t fit. His son was adamant that he was flying a Corsair but when Bruce did some digging it came up that James Huston was not flying a Corsair when he got shot down. Also while Bruce was at the convention, no one even mentioned Corsairs and no one recalled there being any Corsairs. It was the only piece that wasn’t making any sense so Bruce took his investigation a step further and actually contacted James Huston's family. In 2003 they managed to track down James Huston’s sister, Anne Huston Baron.

They told her everything that had been going on with their son James and she wanted to talk to him. They had several phone conversations and James knew several things that he just shouldn’t have known. First he said that it was Annie not Anne, and that they had a sister named Ruth. He even knew that Ruth was 4 years older than Anne and that Anne was 4 years older than James, making him the youngest. He also said that he was the only one who called her Annie. It was all completely accurate. He said that as children they had had matching portraits done by an artist and that the artist's name was Darryl and that they had given the paintings to their mother as a gift. Anne says that no one besides her and her siblings had ever even known about the paintings.

Anne sent James (Leininger) a box of James Huston things and the first item in the box was a picture of James next to a Corsair airplane. According to Anne this was his favorite plane and the one he flew in all the time. James Huston had even been in a special squadron a year before he died that only flew Corsair airplanes.

Remember those three GI Joes that James had named? Those were real people. Their full names were Billy Peeler, Leon Conner, and Walter Devlon. They all died while serving with James Huston on the Natoma.

Bruce was convinced at this point and he even set up a memorial for the Natoma. At the memorial inauguration there was a veteran named Bob Greenwald who had served with James Huston on the Natoma. James (Leininger) knew that that man's name was Bob Greenwald before even knowing it was him. He said that he recognized his voice. After the ceremony his parents said that James was acting pretty bummed and not in a good mood. He said it was because all of his friends were old. In his head he had expected to see all of his young friends.

As time went on James' parents decided to have a memorial for James Huston. They went to Chichi Iwa to leave flowers and while there James was extremely emotional.

His parents are both completely convinced. It was their first time being parents and were very protective. They knew what books they read to him and what shows he was watching. There’s no way he could have known any of these things and especially not at 2 years old. James is older now and still believes that he is the reincarnated version of James Huston the Third. He says that the nightmares stopped after they went to Chichi Iwa when he was able to come to peace with it.

There's some theories that try to explain reincarnation. Some people think that the soul/spirit is like a radio signal and it needs a body/device to pick it up. Reincarnation has been a staple of eastern religion for an extremely long time.

James’s dad tried to debunk this for years and was never able to. There’s just no logical explanation for this other than James Leininger is the reincarnated version of James Huston the third.


Let me know what you guys think of this one. There will be more in the future but I wanted to start off with one of my favorites. Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ’›Katie

๐Ÿ“ฝMarilyn Monroe Conspiracies ๐Ÿ“ฝ


Disclaimer: Writing about these conspiracy theories is for entertainment and I'm not saying that any of these things are facts. I'm not trying to spread misinformation or anything like that. I’m also not trying to be disrespectful in any way. Posting this article doesn’t mean I believe in these either, this is just some fun conspiracies about Marilyn Monroe that I've come across after spending years with hyper conspiracy theorists. More posts are to come about different conspiracies in the future! So stay tuned. 

Just sit back, relax, and put on your Tin Foil Hat  ๐Ÿ’›Katie 

Background

Marilyn Monroe had a very chaotic life start to finish. Her father left before she was born and her mother struggled with depression and various mental illnesses. Her mom abused alcohol and other drugs and was abusive to Marilyn as well. Marilyn has been quoted many times that her first memories are of her mother trying to kill her. When she was still a child her mother was placed in a mental institute and Marilyn was put into foster care.

Marilyn married James (Jim) Dougherty in 1942. He served in WW2 and left Marilyn at home. During this time she went and got a job in a factory which was typical of military wives at the time. While working in the factory a photographer came to take pictures of the women working and that's how she got discovered as a model.

As a model she was known as a natural beauty, and would show her stomach rolls. She was a size 8 which is a lot bigger than typical models. Many people liked her and identified with her for her natural beauty. However she eventually succumbed to pressure to get cosmetic surgery. She got her nose done, chin done, and probably a lot of other things done. At the time it was shameful to get plastic surgery and it was not talked about. She had to get it done in secret.

Life wasn’t any easier for her as a celebrity. Paparazzi was very tough for her. She often talked about how much she hated them. She was on anxiety, depression, and insomnia medication. She was very stressed out about the paparazzi and the pressures of being a celebrity.

She had several affairs and thus got divorced from her first husband Jim in 1946. She was known to have had many affairs and many different partners. She is rumoured to have had affairs with both Kennedy brothers, John and Robert. (There’s no way to confirm this obviously but it is widely speculated). In 1954 she got remarried to a man named Joe DiMaggio. Although during this time it’s reported that both her and DiMaggio were having many affairs. The marriage was short lived and ended one year later in 1955.

She then married Arthur Miller in 1956, and also during this marriage she was known to have many many affairs including her ex-husband Joe DiMaggio. That marriage ended in 1961, one year before her death.

Marilyn is reported to have died very early in the morning of August 5th, 1962. She might have possibly died the night of August 4th, but she is officially recorded dying on August 5th.

About 7pm the night of August 4th, Joe DiMaggio allegedly called Marilyn to discuss the official end of their relationship. They had still been seeing each other on and off for a long time and most people speculate that this is what they were talking about. Joe says that Marilyn was fairly cheery after this discussion. Between 7:30 and 7:45pm Peter Lawford (who was also connected to the Kennedys) calls to invite Marilyn to a party but she says no. Peter says that she had slurred speech and just seemed off. He began to get a little concerned and contacted her housekeeper Eunice Murray to check on her.

At around 10pm Eunice walks by Marilyn's room and says that the door was closed but she could see that the light was on from under the door. She says that she didn’t hear any noises or anything so she decided it was best not to disturb her. At around midnight she notices that the light is still on in Marilyn's room but she still doesn't hear anything so she knocks a couple of times and realizes that the door was locked.

Instead of calling 911 she calls Marilyn's Psychiatrist, Dr. Greenson and asks him to come over. From what I understand he was kind of on call for Marilyn. He was a celebrity Psychiatrist and was able to prescribe medications for her. There has been a lot of speculation as to why the housekeeper didn’t just call 911 but a lot of celebrities have strict instructions for their staff because they’re worried about the press. It’s possible that something like that was going on.

Dr. Greenson went to Marilyn's house and wasn’t able to get through the locked door so he went outside to her window. He says that he could see her laying face down in her bed and that he broke the window to get in. There has been a lot of speculation about the window. A lot of people say that because of the way the window was built, the glass had to have been broken from the inside and that the scene is staged. Marilyn could have died as early as 9pm August 4th or early in the morning August 5th.

Here is where it gets really sketchy.

Peter Lawford (the guy who invited her to the party earlier) called her at about 1am and was informed that she had died. But the police didn’t arrive on the scene until 4:30am. It was rumored that there had been multiple ambulances at her house during the night but that they had all been turned away. The overall timing of that night is very sketchy.

Later the day of August 5th, her body was brought to the morgue and the two men who carried her body say that the whole thing was extremely weird. They said that the body looked fake and the neck looked incredibly swollen.

The first police officer that arrived on the scene also says that the scene was super weird. He’s been quoted saying he thought it was staged, and looked way too neat. Her barbiturate pills (sleeping pills) were sitting perfectly on her night stand and that there was no water or any type of drink in the room for her to take the pills with. One could argue that she may not have needed water or anything to swallow the pills but the issue is that she had to have taken so many pills that that seems really unlikely.

At the morgue they discovered that there was no trace of the pills in her bloodstream or her stomach whatsoever. They were able to find traces of the pills in her liver so people speculate that she might have taken the pills rectally.


Here's where the conspiracies come in

  • A popular conspiracy theory is that Marilyn was knocked out with chloroform and was administered the drugs rectally while she was unconscious to kill her. 

  • Marilyn had many connections, and possibly an affair with the president. Some conspiracy theorists believe that through her affairs with the Kennedy brothers she found out something she shouldn’t have known and it made her a threat to the government. It's possible that the government was worried about Marilyn outing the president for his affair or about some other secrets that JFK told her. Some people think that JFK had told Marilyn about aliens, and even a UFO crash site. The government might’ve been worried about her exposing the US’s collaboration with the extraterrestrials. People believe it could’ve been the government, the CIA, or even the Kennedy brothers that executed this murder or had forced Marilyn to kill herself. 

  • Some people think that the housekeeper and the psychiatrist were paid off to execute this because of their strange behavior the night of her death and the sketchiness of the timeline. 

  • There’s people who believe that this was carried out by the CIA or the FBI because of the whole Bay of Pigs incident and this was their way of getting back at the Kennedys or a way to send them a message. 

  • Other people believe that this may have been carried out by the mafia. Robert Kennedy was known for really starting shit with the mafia and the main focus of his political career was cracking down on organized crime. There are so many mafia ties when it comes to the Kennedy family it's insane. Some people think that the mafia killed Marilyn to get back at them as well. Or maybe Marilyn knew too much about the mafia. 

  • After her death Marilyn's house was gutted and it was discovered that her entire house was wiretapped and that she was being listened to. Marilyn's stylist says that the night before her death she was spending time with a man named, Sam Giancana who was a well known high up mobster. 

  • There is also speculation that Marilyn staged this herself as a fake suicide attempt. Some people either think that she did this for more fame and or that she faked this just so she could start a new life. A lot of people think that Marilyn was so tired of all the fame, paparazzi, stress, and pressure to be this amazing sex symbol that she just wanted to live out the rest of her life in peace.

  • An idea that goes along with this is that John Kennedy wanted to be with Marilyn but couldn’t because of their celebrity/political statuses so they staged their own deaths to be together. Some people believe that it was Robert Kennedy and Marilyn who wanted to be together and staged their deaths. 

  • Another theory is that because Marilyn knew too much about the Kennedy’s, they agreed to help her fake her own death and put her into the witness protection program. 

  • In 2009, 26 different people on the same beach reported that they all saw Marilyn Monroe just walking along the beach. One woman even says that she ran up to her yelling, “Marilyn! Marilyn!” and she turned and that she knew it was her even though she was older but that she had the same iconic smile. According to the woman, Marilyn was whisked away by a man in a long coat and disappeared. 

In the End…

The coroners official report was that it was suicide. Marilyn had a difficult life from the start. She was extremely depressed all her life and had struggled with abuse, alcohol, and the pressures of fame. She really wanted to be a mother and had had a couple of miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy. She didn’t really have any family. Her mom wasn’t in the picture, and from what I know she never met her dad and he was never really involved in her life. She had stated many times that she was nervous about ending up just like her mom in a mental institution.

She had tried to kill herself at least 4 other times and had been known for self harm and use harmful language towards herself. She had been hospitalized for depression previously.

People who knew her have said that they wouldn’t have put it past her to kill herself to make Joe DiMaggio feel guilty for ending things with her.


After Marilyn's death Joe claimed her body and arranged her funeral. He only got her body out of the hospital by threatening to “tear it down brick by brick.” He absolutely forbade “those goddamn Kennedys” from her funeral. He blamed them for her death. He never remarried and would have half a dozen red roses sent to her grave 3 times a week for 20 years. His dying words were, “I’ll finally get to see Marilyn.”

In the end we may never know what really happened to Marilyn Monroe but it’s really interesting to speculate. Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ’›Katie

♋️ Sun Series: Cancer ♋️


Hello and welcome back to Astrology Thursday!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Per usual a lot of the information on this first page is going to be pretty similar to what I put on my other sun series articles. (What is a sun sign, more about the series, etc.) So if you wanna skip ahead to the Cancer part go ahead.

Every Thursday I do an article about something Astrology related. I’m starting with going through the sun signs, then the moon signs, then the rising signs, and proceeding from there through the planets and houses. I know that a lot of people don’t believe in astrology and that’s fine, these articles aren’t gonna be about convincing you. (Although I probably will try sometime in the future). I just find astrology fascinating and informative. I’ve also discovered a huge community of like-minded individuals who have the same beliefs about it as I do and this is my blog and I can do what I want here.

So let's get into some astrology shall we?

First, if you’ve never heard of a sun sign here’s the basics. Each astrology sign holds unique properties which influence our lives in different ways. Although people often refer to each of these signs as ‘their sign’, the correct term is ‘sun sign’ which means the position of the sun in the Zodiac the moment you were born.

Overall Astrology is extremely complex and the sun sign is just a very small part of who you are as a person. If you are a Gemini and don’t really relate to these traits it’s likely because you have many strongly placed other signs in your chart that dull the quality of your Gemini sun.

A sun sign is basically the sign that governs your personality and is a reflection of your soul, your ego, your inner self and determines your basic approach to life. You also have your moon sign and your rising sign which contribute significantly to your character, dreams, relationships, and temperament.

Astrology has an impact on your approach to life and how you respond to any given situation. For instance, if your sun sign is Cancer you may use emotional appeal to get things done the way you want and generally just as the crab walks sideways you take an indirect approach. If you were an Aries however, you would take a more direct and physical approach to get things done.

You also have a moon and rising sign, which - very basically, breaks down to your moon is your emotional self and your rising is how you appear to the outside world. It's also your gut reaction to things. For an Aries rising, your typically knee-jerk reaction to things would be to get angry.

Sun Sign key words: basic nature, basic personality traits, values, the “big picture” of your overall personality, consciousness, basic identity, basic ego

NOTE: You are a Cancer Sun sign if you are born between June 22nd and July 22nd although the exact time varies every year so if you were born near the transition you should check to be sure what your sun sign is. I really like the website astro.com. Just type in your birthday, time of birth, place of birth, and it will give you your accurate sun, moon, and rising sign.

♋️ Sun Series: Cancer ♋️

Cancer is the fourth sign in the zodiac belt. It is a feminine sign and their symbol is the crab.

Cancer is a water sign. The other water signs are Pisces and Scorpio. Cancer is ruled by the moon, they love to look at the moon and are extremely affected by the moon's phases. They are also extremely sensitive and emotional although they get a bad reputation for being “cry-babies.” This just means that their emotions are extremely intense. When you’re happy, you’re really really happy, when you’re sad you’re really really sad. They have an emotional depth that reaches much further than anyone else and they act on it. They make life decisions based on emotion and are very led by emotions all throughout life. They have an inner emotional roller coaster and because of the constant up and down they can come across as moody.

Cancers just like Pisces and Scorpio have intuitiveness. These signs are most prone to psychic abilities. They are connected to the other side more easily. They may dream things that come true, they may talk about something and then it happens. They are prone to experience more coincidences and deja vu more frequently. They are also very intune with other people's emotions. It’s not the easiest sign to be because they are constantly picking up other people's feelings. They think about everyone else and how other people are feeling.

Cancers low-key like drama. That’s why they like reality tv because they’re just dramatic and emotional people. They are really strong and helpful. They will go out of their way to do things for you. They will help their friends even to their own detriment. They are extremely loyal and dedicated to the people that they love. They aren’t judgemental and are very understanding. Some of the best people to talk to. They are the best at having deep talks.

Cancers are typically associated with Mothers because they are very attached to their mothers and are extremely nurturing. They have a stronger need than others to be a parent. They like taking care of people. Good homemakers. They want to take care of you. Extremely sentimental. Cancer rules the 4th house which is the house of family matters. They are extremely attached to their family and family is one of the main focuses of their life.

They can get very attached to people, even if they’re a toxic person they have a hard time letting go of people and relationships. Once they’re committed to someone they are committed and will see the relationship through to the end. They are very sensitive. Almost annoyingly so. They take too many things personally when they weren’t meant to be taken seriously. They tend to be insecure and think that people don’t like them.

A Cancer will use emotions to get what they want. They’re the type of person to guilt trip you into saying yes to something. They are the captain of the pity party. They can be very pessimistic.

They are extremely hard working. They are motivated by emotion. They think that they’re lazy if they’re not working hard. They come across as shy and as homebodies. Their symbol is the crab and they tend to stay in their shell. It can be hard for them to venture out but once they do they are extremely fun people. They are considered the funniest sign because they’re so imaginitive. They’re very sarcastic and are always making jokes.

Cancers are very very hard on themselves. They are the most insecure sign. They think that they can never be good enough. They really want to be liked and are constantly worried that people don’t like them. They just see the world differently and oftentimes aren’t able to get the same emotions back that they put into people. Other people just aren’t capable of feeling the way a Cancer does. They tend to feel misunderstood. A lot of Cancers have depression. They overthink things too much.

A Cancer's greatest challenge is to learn that they are enough. They always put other people first and they need to learn to put themselves first. Despite them thinking that people don’t like them, they are the most like able sign. People are drawn to them. They are good, partners, parents, friends. They’re just good people.

Every sign has a special trait that they bring to the world. Cancers bring their emotional depth, nurturing nature, and a reminder to not be too hard on yourself.

Cancer keywords: emotional, psychic, loving, nurturing, intuitive, fragile, sensitive, observant, deep, realistic, honest, hardworking, family oriented.

๐Ÿ’€ Iowa's Ghost Stories ๐Ÿ’€


Since a young age, I have always been fascinated by all things paranormal. Since I’ve gotten older, I’ve been told many of the ghost stories and strange phenomena that have happened to my family members and people I know. I myself have had a few strange things happen that I can’t explain.

Personally I don’t think Iowa is a major hotspot for paranormal activity but I know that it happens. And I have a few stories to tell.

Schoon Farm 1975 - Knierim, IA
    • One night my Grandma is awakened by a loud crash that sounds like her China cabinet has fallen over. She runs down to the basement to find absolutely nothing out of place. 
    • My Aunt (around 12 at the time) sees a tall man in a top hat walking up the farm house lane at night. She says he looks just like Abe Lincoln.
    • My Grandma says that she would feel rushes of cold air, as if someone had just walked by her, but there was no one there and no reason for the small gusts of wind. 
    • The man who lived on the farm prior had mouth cancer and was constantly in excruciating pain. He was known to rip chucks of his jaw out. My Grandma believes it was his restless ghost tormenting them.
    • They moved into the garage and burned the house down in 1976. They have not had any paranormal activity since. 

Ames, IA 2017 - (All of these occurred in the same room at a residence in Ames)
    • The lamp that no one could get to turn on would turn on in the middle of the night without anyone touching it. 
    • People started to report the feeling of being watched but only when they entered just this one room in the house
    • The same room was always noticeably colder than the rest of the house. No matter what they did they couldn’t make the room stay at a comfortable temperature for long. 
    • Also in the same room, people report hearing people arguing just outside the window at night but upon inspection there was no one there. 
    • People have also reported hearing branches scrape against the window but there were no branches or anything that could have made that noise nearby. 

Iowa State Farmhouse Museum - Ames, IA
    • Employees have stated hearing broken glass but finding none.
    • Occasionally people will report seeing a woman in the window dressed in period clothes from a different time.
    • Feeling gusts of wind as if someone has just walked by are common. 
    • Doors have shut and locked on their own.
    • Electronics are reported to stop working or malfunction while in the house. 
    • (Personal Story) Back in 2015 I was taking summer classes at ISU. For class one day we went on a tour of the Iowa State Farm House Museum which is notoriously haunted. Immediately upon entering I started to feel very strange and midway through the tour I could only see static. I had to sit down and wait for it to pass. It took about 10 minutes and then I was able to rejoin the group. I have never experienced before or since seeing static and I am convinced it was due to paranormal activity.
*Iowa State Campus was named the 5th most haunted campus in the midwest in 2014

McCarville Residence, Fort Dodge, IA - Early 1990s
    • Lights would turn on and off without anyone touching them 
    • The radio would frequently turn on without anyone touching it 
    • My cousin and a friend were in the house alone one day. They left the kitchen briefly to come back to find every drawer, cabinet, and cupboard was open. 
    • (I know that there is a lot more activity that happened at this house but I'm waiting to hear back from them and I'll add more once I hear from them)

Unknown Iowa Country Road - 1962
    • My great uncle is driving home late one night in down pouring rain. He encounters a woman wearing white standing in the middle of the road. He gets out to see if she's alright but she is suddenly gone. He notices that the bridge had been washed out. If he hadn't have stopped he would have driven right over the edge and likely perished. 


I love hearing about things that can’t be explained. Let me know some of your ghost stories! I will be checking :) Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ’›Katie

The Iowa State Farm House Museum was the first building on Iowa State Campus. Its a National Historic Landmark that was built in 1860. It served as a living quarters for various Iowa State deans, professors, farmhands and students. (photo is curtesy of https://www.museums.iastate.edu/visit/farm-house-museum)

๐Ÿ˜ฑ 16 Mind Blowing Conspiracy Theories ๐Ÿ˜ฑ


Disclaimer: Writing about these conspiracy theories is for entertainment and I'm not saying that any of these things are facts. I'm not trying to spread misinformation or anything like that. Posting this list doesn’t mean I believe in these either, this is just a list I've come up with after spending years with hyper conspiracy theorists. More detailed posts are to come about specific conspiracy theories in the future! So stay tuned.

  Sit back, Relax, and put on your Tin Foil Hat ๐Ÿ’›Katie

  1. We are all the same person but we look different but we are consciously one person. We have deja vu because we have lived almost everyone’s life before and we have karma because what we are saying to others is what we’re saying to ourselves in reality.
  2. Dinosaurs were wiped out by a flood rather than a meteor
  3. The earth is flat 
  4. The US is controlled by an oligarchy
  5. John Kennedy was murdered by the oligarchy that controls the US Government
  6. Princess Diana was murdered by the British government because she was pregnant with Dodi Fayed’s baby
  7. The oligarchy that runs the US Government also helps to run the international human slave trade
  8. The moon landing footage (not the landing the footage) was faked because the US Government knows about, and is friendly with, the aliens that have a base on the moon
  9. Shakespeare's plays and writings were all written by Sir Francis Bacon and he used William Shakespeare as a cover because he felt it was his spiritual calling to unite the English language but not take any credit for it
  10. Shakespeare was illiterate and his signature looks like the signature of a child or someone who has never used a pen before
  11. Organized religion uses fear of death to control people
  12. Chemtrails are used by the government to make people dumber
  13. Pop stars are slaves who are used to distract the public from things that really matter in the world
  14. Crisis actors are real
  15. The 2019 California Fires and the Australia fires were started on purpose
  16. There is a growing idea about what is actually happening with this quarantine. What if, there is an impending attack coming upon us from something outside of our solar system? Scientists have discovered a comet hurtling towards earth that is scheduled to pass by dangerously close. POTUS announced that the coming days will bring us death like we have not seen since WW1 and WW2. Q has mentioned aliens, the world militaries have been staging for something huge, and they are ensuring everyone is at home and accounted for. Russian military is staging in Italy (first time since WW2), the US has activated over 1 Million reservists, China is staging, Venezuela, Chile, and more. What if Corona is a distraction from something coming?

๐Ÿค— 23 Things I've Accomplished in 23 Years ๐Ÿค—


Okay so I know that the title comes across as a little narcissistic. I’m not actually a self-absorbed asshole. (Although our society does reward narcissistic behavior, but that's another article). I think that most people only look at the things they don’t have and the areas where they fell short and not enough people remember to acknowledge and be thankful for how far they’ve come. Most people wanna be somewhere they’re not. What’s wrong with the step you’re on?

In honor of my birthday, I'm allowed to be a little self-absorbed and look back at all I’ve accomplished in 23 years. I understand this probably won’t be very interesting to the many people who don’t know me and read my articles but this is my blog, and I can post what I want. So get over it.

I also want to encourage anyone who’s reading this to look back at their own life and acknowledge their accomplishments. It’s something I never even thought about doing until a few years ago when I was on a study abroad trip in Sweden and we learned about the Imposter Syndrome. The Imposter Syndrome is a psychological pattern in which one doubts one’s accomplishments and despite external evidence of their competence, they remain convinced that they do not deserve all that they’ve achieved.

When I was 15 years old, I always imagined adults in their 20s would be doing big things and getting their lives in order. Now that I am in my 20s, I feel so stupid for having thought about it that way. I talk to my friends who are in their 30s, being moms and dads, they still sometimes are a little insecure and don’t know what they’re doing. Then I realized that age has nothing to do with our living and achieving. There is no right or wrong way to live a life. Life will always be filled with both happiness, sadness, humiliation, appreciation, etc.

We know ourselves from the inside but we only know others from the outside. We don’t see how everyone else is just as flawed as you are. As some smart person said, we see our blooper reel and others' highlights reel.

The study abroad class was about what it takes to be a leader. To be a great leader/person, you must believe that you are capable and worthy of your accomplishments. Otherwise you would never reach your full potential.

We did an exercise where we wrote down things that we were proud of and things we’ve accomplished, etc. And it really stuck with me. I think that everyone should do this at least once a year. Here’s my list, I could probably add more or better stuff but honestly I didn’t really think about this too hard lol. And this isn’t me trying to be boastful or a showoff. I’m allowed to be proud of my accomplishments, and I would like to encourage every one else to do the same.

So without further ado here are 23 things I’ve accomplished in 23 years. (Alexa play Ante Up by M.O.P. ๐Ÿ˜Ž)
  1. Graduated from a 4 year university with a Bachelor's Degree
  2. got my articles published
  3. got my paintings published
  4. Studied Abroad twice
  5. Travelled to 8 different countries 
  6. Travelled to 22 states
  7. Got a fish!!
  8. Bought myself a car
  9. Lived by myself
  10. Started a successful blog
  11. Learned another language
  12. Paid off my credit card
  13. Joined a Sorority
  14. Joined AmeriCorps (even though it ended up being total trash lol)
  15. Lived in another country for a month
  16. Volunteered at the Theatre
  17. Travelled to New York City alone
  18. Somehow got into The Box NYC (which is like impossible to get into so I'm heckin proud of that. Also if you know, you know ๐Ÿ˜Ž) 
  19. Hit 10,000 views on my blog
  20. Finally started on a screenwrite I’ve been wanting to do for years
  21. Wrote several articles that I’m extremely proud of and that have gotten wide recognition
  22. Discovered that I’m a fabulous writer ๐Ÿ’
  23. Applied for, and got accepted into, one of the most prestigious Film Academies in the world

Thank you for taking the time to read this! And don't forget to acknowledge your own accomplishments sometimes.   ๐Ÿ’›Katie

♊️ Sun Series: Gemini ♊️


Hello and welcome back to Astrology Thursday!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Per usual a lot of the information on this first page is going to be pretty similar to what I put on my Sun Sign Aries and Taurus articles. (What is a sun sign, more about the series, etc.) So if you wanna skip ahead to the Gemini part go ahead.

Every Thursday I do an article about something Astrology related. I’m starting with going through the sun signs, then the moon signs, then the rising signs, and proceeding from there through the planets and houses. I know that a lot of people don’t believe in astrology and that’s fine, these articles aren’t gonna be about convincing you. (Although I probably will try sometime in the future). I just find astrology fascinating and informative. I’ve also discovered a huge community of like-minded individuals who have the same beliefs about it as I do and this is my blog and I can do what I want here.

So let's get into some astrology shall we?

First, if you’ve never heard of a sun sign here’s the basics. Each astrology sign holds unique properties which influence our lives in different ways. Although people often refer to each of these signs as ‘their sign’, the correct term is ‘sun sign’ which means the position of the sun in the Zodiac the moment you were born.

Overall Astrology is extremely complex and the sun sign is just a very small part of who you are as a person. If you are a Gemini and don’t really relate to these traits it’s likely because you have many strongly placed other signs in your chart that dull the quality of your Gemini sun.

A sun sign is basically the sign that governs your personality and is a reflection of your soul, your ego, your inner self and determines your basic approach to life. You also have your moon sign and your rising sign which contribute significantly to your character, dreams, relationships, and temperament.

Astrology has an impact on your approach to life and how you respond to any given situation.

Sun Sign key words: basic nature, basic personality traits, values, the “big picture” of your overall personality, consciousness, basic identity, basic ego

NOTE: You are a Gemini Sun sign if you are born between May 21st and June 21st although the exact time varies every year so if you were born near the transition you should check to be sure what your sun sign is. I really like the website astro.com. Just type in your birthday, time of birth, place of birth, and it will give you your accurate sun, moon, and rising sign.

♊️Sun Series: Gemini ♊️

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac. Their symbol is The Twins. Gemini is a masculine sign.

Geminis are the most impatient people in the world. They want everything to happen fast. They are fast moving and fast thinking in general. Geminis in particular never think that they fit their sign (also true for Capricorn but mostly Gemini). If you are not a Gemini sun and feel that you have a lot of these Gemini traits you probably have Gemini prominently placed in your chart and if you are a Gemini sun and do not relate to these traits you likely have other signs that are strongly placed in your chart that dull the effect of your Gemini sun.

In particular when an air sign has a water moon sign they typically take the traits of their moon sign rather than their sun. Everyone always takes on the traits of their moon and rising signs but this is stronger when an air sign is the sun sign.

Geminis do not like conflict. They are very sociable. They know how to interact with many different types of people and they enjoy interacting with others. The air signs are, Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra. Qualities of the air signs are that they are extremely intelligent, sociable, mental focused, and they easily share emotions. They like to be theoretical before implementing actions. A lot of the qualities of a Gemini are shared with the other air signs.

Geminis in particular are very witty and good with words. Rappers are usually Geminis (such as Kanye West, Fetty Wap, Tupac, G Eazy, Kendric Lamar, Notorious B.I.G., Macklemore, Ice Cube, and Kodak Black.)

Air signs are also extremely beautiful or attractive people. Libras are considered to be the most attractive sign but all air signs are typically very good looking. Even if they aren’t considered very beautiful, people are usually just very attracted to them. They are very easily liked because of their sociable nature and they genuinely like to interact with people. Intelligence comes easily for air signs.

They are ruled by the planet Mercury which is the planet of communication so Geminis are excellent communicators. They talk a lot (a lot). Their brains are moving so quickly that their mouth is just trying to catch up. Air signs in general think quickly and always have ideas and thoughts buzzing around in their heads but Geminis like to talk about it. They are outgoing and always thinking about something (also true for the other Air signs).

Geminis are very very fast talkers and extremely good with words. They are brilliant when it comes to writing poems. Many of them are writers or journalists. They need to communicate and get their ideas out. They love to talk with people and exchange ideas. They enjoy using social media and are really good listeners because they genuinely want to know what’s going on in other people’s heads.

Their sign is the Twin and they are known to have dual personalities or being “two-faced.” They don’t just have two personalities though they can be almost anyone and everyone. They are more open to ideas and to different people so they can always change and adjust to whoever they’re with. They like social chameleons. You may think you know a Gemini really well but you may not even know the deep side of them at all. They are actually very secretive. It's hard to really know every side to a Gemini.

They need to be stimulated at all times. They need to keep their minds moving. Geminis more than any other sign get told that they’re crazy. Which is low-key kind of true but they know this. They need to be around people who can keep up with their wit. They feel like they can be failing in their life if they’re not busy. They like to have many things going on at once. They have a hard time relaxing and constantly need to be doing something and because they can’t shut their brain off. They are usually insomniacs.

They are really fun people because they like to be active and doing things. They have an extreme need to get their thoughts and ideas out. (Think Kanye interrupting Taylor at the 2009 VMAs). Or some Geminis may think that nobody could keep up with their ideas and don’t say anything at all. They like to be recognized for how smart they are and how much better they are than other people. (Donald Trump, Scott Disick, and again Kanye West are Geminis who exhibit this trait strongly).

Geminis are very independent people who don’t care about other people’s opinions of them. They don’t need approval from others. They know that they are smart and beautiful. They like to be the boss because they think that they can get the job done better than anyone else. They get extremely impatient with people who are “slower” than they are. They are very persistent about getting what they want.

They are known to be indecisive. Not as much as a Libra but Geminis are also notoriously very indecisive because they see everyone's point of view. They don’t like to participate in conflict but love to watch when others are in conflict. They - along with the other air signs - lie a lot. This is because they don’t want to be in conflict and will tell white lies to appease people. They can be hard to trust. They can have tons and tons of friends but only trust a very small group into their inner circle. They can come across as disingenuous but they just don’t like to share their inner selves with anyone not in their inner circle. They love to share other people's secrets though. They’re a bit of a gossip.

They are extremely curious people. They are opened minded and can see every side to every situation. They either really enjoy learning and school, or they don’t enjoy school because it’s too slow for them so they get their knowledge from elsewhere. It’s important for them to share what they have learned.

They are very creative people. They’re the type of person to have a favorite color and their whole wardrobe/house etc, is that color. They like to create the world how they wanna see it. They really value expressing themselves to the world. Oftentimes their homes, offices, cars, etc are very beautiful and decorated to their taste. How they come across to the world is very important to them. It's not always who they actually are on the inside, it might just be who they want you to see.

They adapt very easily to whoever they’re around. You may think that a Gemini likes you one day and then hates you the next. It's not easy to figure out where you stand with a Gemini. They’re not very vocal about telling people how they feel about them. They can come across as very cold one second and then very warm to you the other second (this is where The Twins/two-facedness comes in).

When it comes to relationships and friendships Geminis need to be with intelligent people. Having that mental connection is the most important for them. They need someone who is just as witty as they are and just as intellectual. They are attracted to people who are just strong in their minds, someone they can have good conversations with. They value people who like to have a good time. They often end up with other air signs, or fire signs.

They’re good at fighting because they’re so quick witted. They’re not the type to scream or yell or get really upset. It's not a smart idea to start a fight with a Gemini, their wit cannot be matched.

They get really frustrated when they feel like people aren’t listening to them or understanding them. They enjoy the light side of life. They can be moody. Their moods shift just as quickly as their minds. They are usually successful people. They are persistent to their goals. They make good business people and have no problem being a little manipulative to get where they wanna be. They are extremely adaptable and thrive in unfamiliar environments.

Every sign has special traits that they bring to the world. Geminis bring their wit, intelligence, and confidence.

Gemini Keywords: Smart, innovated, have original ideas, geniuses, life of the party, fun, crazy partiers, confident, sure of themselves, determined, able to adapt to any situation, good people skills, they thrive in unfamiliar territory, adaptable, manipulative, good in the business world,
