Everything Changes and Nothing Changes


therumpus:

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: Maybe the world’s been moving fast around you and maybe your thoughts have been moving fast inside your own skull, and either way, things can start to slow down this week. You can find moments of sweet stillness; you can find time just to sit, just to live, just to watch colors in the sky. Everything around you can come into focus. Everything around you can make sense, for now. Just keep your head up and keep your eyes open and keep breathing the clear sweet morning air.
Taurus: You’re going to be so busy this week, busy just building the best life you can, busy growing older, busy growing up. There might be hints of magic and there might be signs of a glowing future somewhere up ahead, but this will mostly be a week for keeping your head, for keeping your feet on the ground, for staying honest. Try to keep believing in your own life. Try to keep believing that all this work matters. Try to get enough sleep. It’s going to be a very good week.
Gemini: This week will present you with some challenges, maybe; it will offer you some choices. This might seem difficult and it might seem like too much, but you’ll know what to do. You already have all the tools you need, you have all the raw materials, you have all the wisdom and the guts. Try not to forget that. Don’t let anyone convince you that you don’t know what you need. You can make warmth out of nothing; you can build joy out of air. There will be nothing that you can’t handle.
Cancer: The world around you can calm down this week, and your days can all start to make sense again. You can sleep so well and you can wake up happy and you can move like you know where you’re going. Things are going to be okay this week, even the things that didn’t seem like they would be, so try to use your time to be kind. Try to use your time to set things right. You can find your own balance again. You can find your own voice. You can find what you need.
Leo: There will be so many things that you don’t know, this week. There will be so many things that can make you feel small. There will be so many kinds of love that will be gentler and weirder and more real than you can even see, and it’s okay. This is a week for learning to let other people live, learning to feel small, learning to feel awe at all the things you don’t know and can’t even predict. Just try to keep your eyes open. Try to keep your heart beating. Try to be kind.
Virgo: Your thoughts have been racing inside you, maybe, working so hard to make sense of the world, working so hard to find a story that makes sense. This week things might start to settle. This week you might start to feel solid again. Things have changed inside of you, and this is a week for adjusting. It’s a week for being as patient as you can. It’s a week for practicing living until it feels natural and easy again. Your days might not make sense yet, but they will.
Libra: This week does not have to be such a big week; this week does not have to bear all the weight of the past and the future, and it does not have to bear the weight of all of your secret dreams. This week, try to give yourself a moment to rest. Take a bath, take a day off, take a minute to watch the sky. You’ve survived so many things already, and all you have to do this week is be very good to other people. All you have to do this week is be kind.
Scorpio: This is a week for trying; this is a week for experimenting. This is a week for doing things you’ve never done before, for talking to strangers or cooking without a recipe or driving without a map. Go to places where you’re never been before, places where there might be sparks and their might be nothing and there might be magic like nothing you’ve ever seen. It’s hard to surprise your own self, so let the world do it for you. Let the world show you what you didn’t know you were looking for.
Sagittarius: It’s okay to let your dreams light you up this week, it’s okay to let them make you happy, it’s okay to let them make you a little gentle. It’s okay to believe in the magic of what’s possible. It’s okay to trust the path that you’re walking on, to believe that it’s leading to the place you’re hoping to find. Either you’ll be right in the end or you won’t, and either way it will be okay, and you’ll keep living, and the sun will still light up your days all gold and bright.
Capricorn: If you’re not so productive this week, or if you don’t spend your time the way you think you should, try not to worry. Nothing’s going to be wasted this week, not even your wasted time. Things are going to keep getting better this week, slowly, quietly, so gently that you might not notice. It’s a week for opening all your windows and watching the light change; it’s a week for watching storms in the afternoon. It’s a week for getting up early and watching the sun rise over the trees and rooftops.
Aquarius: This is a week for waiting and watching and letting the world unfurl itself all bright around you. This is a week for eating lunch outside, a week for looking to the sun, a week for letting your body set its own pace. It’s okay, sometimes, to go through slow seasons and dry seasons and strange seasons. It’s okay to move slowly when you need to. It’s okay to give yourself time to let your brain catch up with your body, time to let your dreams catch up with the sky.
Pisces: There are thing you’ve been working to let go and there are things you’ve been meaning to let go and there are things that you haven’t even noticed hanging over your head, weighing heavy in all your bags and your pockets. There are things that have been taking up too much space in your heart. This is a week for clearing out some space for yourself. You can drop some of this heaviness, and you can be brave enough to carry the rest. Have your friends over for dinner. Fill your dreams with light.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting

Her face makes me very very very very very sad. I wanna cry

Fuck all cops.

I don’t know why the husband believes they were targeted because they were an interracial couple… SHE was targeted because SHE was black… da fuk…

Right. He somehow had to make it about him when it was obvious that it was about her being black.

well part of the reason they stood out was because they were an interracial couple. let’s not pretend that isn’t still taboo.

Who’s cuffed though…..

"When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation. But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him. Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people."

Keith Boykin: Does the Second Amendment Only Apply to White People? (via clambistro)

Shit, neither does the first. As demonstrated by the reaction to protesters in Ferguson.
