The lone howl of a coyote sometimes announces that it has been separated from its pack. The pack will often emit group “yip howls” to call their lost member, which could explain the response the man in this video gets when he imitates their howl from deep within the forest.

positive lady characters meme | Martha Jones + powerful/feminist moment

I was 900% prepared for her to flip the bird for science in this scene like oh here’s the bones of the finger that I use to say ‘fuck you’

hey remember when we used to have companions who were actualized individuals and not just puzzles to be solved

I love the next bit of this scene, where that lady is all “Well…you just read that in a book!” and Martha’s like, “No shit, you pasty twit. My MEDICAL TEXT BOOK.For my degree. In Medicine.”

It’s OK to consult the cards when you’re upset, overwhelmed, or confused. Pick a ‘gentler’ deck to read with, if possible. (Some decks with snarkier personalities aren’t suited for this sort of work!) Ask your cards to help you gain clarity & peace. You might be surprised by how comforting they can be.
I have a deck of cards I use exclusively for a) people who have never had a tarot reading before or who might be scared by the process, and b) times when I need a gentler message. They are my trusty fallback in any situation.

When I’m really shook up or anxious, I sometimes need a bit of a slap in the face, myself, because it shocks me out of the anxiety cycle. (They’re usually not “DEAL WITH IT” types of messages but instead stuff like “You’re fretting so much you’re not noticing that you’re not seeing the payoff the situation is really bringing you. Stop that.”) But for other people yeah, I usually go for the less blunt decks or the ones that look a bit more friendly. Silhouettes Tarot has been great for that.

I have a couple decks that are specifically “pick me up” decks with bright colours and comforting messages. My Mythical Goddess Tarot is great for this sort of thing even if it’s not the best deck for more, shall we say, nuanced readings. 
Actually I’d say the majority of my oracles are like this as well.

I’ve reblogged a lot of these pictures before but been unable to source them, so I’m glad to see a name attached to them.

Scandinavian Folklore – Trolls

No creature frequents the stories and beliefs that make up the Scandinavian folklore as often as the trolls. Trolls often lived inside of mountains, and were then called mountain trolls or mountain people. They could also be found in big blocks of stone or simply underground. Few creatures of folklore have been quite as transformed by modern storytellers and toymakers as the trolls. We’re used to seeing them as clumsy and grotesque, furry human-like creatures. And of course they always have a tail. If only it would have been that simple!

But amongst the people of old trolls had a reputation as being very complex and cunning creatures. What they actually looked like is debatable, and often varies from place to place. There are also stories about them being able to change their appearance at will. Sometimes they could look just like humans, but much more beautiful of course!  

Trolls especially liked to take the shape of animals. If you happened upon a strange cat or dog walking about alone you should be extra careful, because those were the trolls favourite animals to transform into.

The trolls home-life was actually quite similar that of people, they lived in large families and kept animals. You could sometimes hear them shouting or smell their cooking deep in the mountains or forest.  And they also liked to make trouble for the humans nearby. They often sneaked into village and farms to attempt to steal food or beer. A clever farmer would protect himself by always carrying steel (like a troll cross).

But trolls stealing food was not the biggest problem. From time to time, a villager might disappear in the forest and then people would suspect them of having been mountain-taken, kidnapped by trolls.
