Min Yoongi Past Life
This is solely based on intuition and clairs, no cards were used.Feel free to ask any questions you have.Entertainment purposes only.
As soon as I tapped in, I heard loud music and saw Yoongi riding a horse, we seemed to be in Antic Rome.I strongly got the feeling that Yoongi was a respected commander in the empire’s army, which seemed strange because that is quite far from what I’d expect from his essence 🤔I immediately heard “unexpected war hero”.I’m getting the feeling he was adopted by a Senator or someone close to the Emperor, and was taught Roman politics and the art of war and philosophy from a young age.However, due to his reputation as this person’s son, he was threatened and was given no choice but to go to war.He came back successful, but simply by a stroke of luck he’d say but the other army generals and commanders disagreed.I think he saw a younger soldier die to protect him, and was feeling very guilty about it.This young soldier didn’t come from Rome but another province, and I see him kneeling in front of a leader, so I think he went apologizing to the province leader for the death of the young boy (his words not mine), against the general public opinion who would have thought his death would have been meaningless.I think this kind of behavior enraged him so bad he did everything he could to become a politician and twist the society of his time into what he wanted it to be, a more fair and just society. I think he might have done some illegal things to insure the progress of society ?Not necessarily very bad things but corruption, threats against power hungry advisors, sponsoring philosophers or savants illegally…Tbh I don’t remember much from my Latin classes, but from memory society at the time was less heteronormative but a bit more structured socially, for example it wasn’t exceptional for an emperor to have a wife and a male lover publicly on the side (well I mean it’s the emperor who’s gonna stop him), but I think Yoongi fell in love in a way that was taboo in his time.I think it happened long after his military exploit and his work in politics.He might actually have been married at the time, but with no kids.I think things started to get messy, which would have put his lover in danger, so he ran away with them one night while leaving his wife behind, but not without making sure she wouldnt be shamed or left without means.However, I don’t think he lived many years after running away with them.
I think this life was really meant to make him understand lessons around the idea of authority and it’s impact on community, like an Aquarian /Capricornian awakening of some sort 🤔

To all the powerful healers & helpers out there: You have brilliant healing abilities because your life force is flowing. You put in the work to dive deep & clear blockages away. We all are born with an openness to the ethereal, but you managed to rememeber & keep it flowing.
I want to remind you that you are allowed to let that life force/sexual energy nurture you first. You deserve it. It is YOUR healing energy, source of rejuvenation & life. Being with others you may feel its easier to let it come out & flow to another. If that's the case your work is in consciously choosing & taking time to let your beautiful energy move through you, e.g. through visualisation, meditation, kundalini yoga or arts. Whatever pleases you best, let your energy move you first! 🐍🤍✨

Understanding Sun Myung Moon’s attitude to sex by taking a look at Korean history
by a Korean professor
Human Dignity and Sexual Culture: A Reflection on the ‘Comfort Women’ Issues
Chunghee Sarah Soh, Ph.D. San Francisco State University
Introduction
The purpose of this paper is to reflect on a particular dimension of the complex issues involving the Comfort Women movement for redress by focusing on what I call ‘masculinist sexual culture’. For the purpose of this paper I use the term ‘masculinist’ to refer to those men and women who believe not only in the Confucian principle of male superiority but also in male ‘sex-rights’(1) to have access to the female body both inside and outside marriage. Masculinists believe that men, in contrast to women, have biologically rooted sexual needs, and consequently, concede to men their ‘natural’ right to seek sexual comfort, both premaritally and extramaritally. Masculinist sexism permeated the traditional cultures of Japan, Korea and other patriarchal societies and is still prevalent today.
The androcentric euphemism ‘comfort women’ (ianfu) is an official coinage of imperial Japan, and was used to categorically refer to young females of various ethnic and national backgrounds and social circumstances who became sexual laborers for the Japanese troops before and during the Second World War. In contrast, the soldiers came to refer to these women as the ‘pi’ (pronounced as ‘pea’), a Chinese term meaning goods or articles, which, as a slang term, stood for female genitals.(2) The estimates of the number of women used as comfort women range between 50,000 and 200,000.(3) It is believed that about 80% of them were Korean.(4) There is no documentary evidence to determine either how many women were used or how many were forced to serve as military comfort women, except for the Dutch case.(5)
Seen from an anti-Japan, nationalist perspective prevalent among activists especially in South Korea, the comfort women issue is simple and clear: Japan as a colonial power exploited Korea’s human resources by rounding up tens of thousands of young unmarried girls and women to be used as military sex slaves. Seen from a more global perspective, however, the issues involved in the comfort women case are complex, running the gamut from the problem of ‘militarized prostitution’ to that of sexual slavery based on gender, age, social class, and ethnicity. Coerced sexual labor, i.e., sexual slavery, was inflicted primarily upon lower class young females of colonial Korea by imperial Japan during the Asia-Pacific War,(6) but not every former comfort woman had been forcibly drafted by the state power. In addition, while teenage Korean maidens from impoverished families constituted the overwhelming majority, relatively older Japanese prostitutes, and primarily lower-class women of colonized Taiwan and other occupied territories were also used as comfort women during the “Fifteen Year War” of aggression pursued by imperial Japan, starting from the Manchurian invasion in 1931 to its unconditional surrender in 1945.
At the core of the contestation over the representation of the military comfort women as sex slaves versus licensed prostitutes(7) lies the issue of state responsibility in forced recruitment of comfort women and the maintenance of the comfort system. On a deeper level, however, many of the central issues around sexual violence in warfare and its relationship to the cultural constructions of gender and human sexuality–more specifically heterosexuality–in patriarchal societies, are being called into question, including the masculinist sexual culture and the perennial question concerning the proper relationship between prostitution and the state. The Rest & Recuperation program for the U.S. soldiers during the Vietnam War was a recent example of a state institution looking after the physical needs of military men.(8) In fact, there still exist thousands of prostitutes in the kijich’on, the U.S. military camptowns in South Korea, and the Korean media used to refer to them as wianbu (“comfort women” in Korean).(9)
The comfort women movement formally began in South Korea in November 1990. The Korean Council for Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan (hereafter, the Korean Council), a non-governmental organization (NGO), is responsible for internationalizing the comfort women issue as a war crime and violations of women’s human rights in situations of armed conflict. With a series of hearings by the United Nations Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR) beginning in 1992, the comfort women issue leaped to the attention of the world community nearly half a century after the end of the War. The Korean Council as a newly formed NGO has accomplished in less than a decade a level of success that went beyond the wildest dreams of the leadership in bringing the attention and support of the international community for their reparation demands against the Japanese government.(10)
As a sociocultural anthropologist specializing in gender issues, social inequality and the processes of culture change, I have followed closely the developmental processes in the internationalization of the Korean comfort women movement from the start. In addition, I have conducted ethnographic field research in Korea, Japan, and the Netherlands. As an example of ‘multi-sited’ ethnographies George Marcus discusses in his latest work,(11) this ongoing research aims to present from the perspective of critical anthropology a multilayered analysis of the complex issues involved in the redress movement. As a Korean American interested in comparative studies of the cultures of Korea and Japan, my goal is to go beyond the national boundaries and to present a balanced and nuanced analysis of once an unproblematized and almost forgotten issue of comfort women from the perspectives of cross-cultural, critical anthropology. And in order to do that, we must delve into the intersections of sex, power, and justice, not simply in heterosexual relations between men and women but also in international relations between nation-states of unequal power.
In this paper I will trace the social origins of the movement and to consider the tasks that remain to be tackled at the societal level in order to help prevent gendered violence against women from occurring not only in situations of armed conflict but in everyday life in many patriarchal societies. One of these tasks, I believe, is to start serious public debate on the ‘masculinist sexual culture’ that is at the root of diverse forms of pervasive social oppression and sexual violence against women.
Indeed, I would argue that it is masculinist double standard for sexual conduct that has contributed to lifelong psychological sufferings for an untold number of comfort women survivors because they were socialized to regard the loss of virginity as a shameful condition deserving social ostracism. Generally speaking, these survivors were socialized from childhood to regard the preservation of sexual purity (chongjol) as important as life itself. Thus, when they returned home after the war, some women were unable to reveal their ordeals even to their mothers. They gave up any hope of finding men who would accept them as legitimate wives if/when they found out about the loss of their virginity and their past as comfort women. They carefully hid their past for fear of social stigma and ostracization its revelation would bring to them and their family. Given the sexual mores of the Korean patriarchy, it is understandable that the survivors of sexual slavery for the troops of imperial Japan during WWII kept their silence for nearly half a century until the early 1990s. Some of them still refuse to reveal their past as comfort women. Others insist on using pseudonyms.
I should point out here that until the redress movement began, the Korean society generally regarded Japan’s comfort system as a military version of licensed prostitution. Koreans are justifiably angry that imperial Japan forcibly recruited young girls and women of colonial Korea for prostitution and sexual enslavement. However, they are unwilling to acknowledge the complicity on the part of some Koreans, which is amply revealed in the survivors’ testimonies. Korean men–and sometimes women as well–participated in the deceptive and/or forcible recruitment and some did so with a purpose of economic gain.
Le me now provide an historical overview of the masculinist sexual culture in Korean society and the social and political economic context that contributed to the emergence of the comfort women movement. In particular, we will examine the phenomenon of kisaeng tourism and consider the plights of the kijich’on sex workers in South Korea in order to highlight the underlying, invisible threads of masculinist sexual culture combined with the political economy of global capitalism that continue to influence the patterns of unequal power relations between the sexes and nation-states in the everyday lives of women working in the sex industry.
Korean Sexual Culture: An Historical Overview
Not many people are aware of the fact that the Korean comfort women movement grew out of feminist and nationalist opposition to the phenomenon of the so-called kisaeng tourism, which is a euphemism for prostitution tourism. The term kisaeng traditionally referred to professional female entertainers. The institution of kisaeng or kinyô was firmly established in Korean society by Koryô dynasty (918-1392) and continued throughout Chosôn dynasty (1392-1910).(12) Kisaeng were chosen from among young females of the lower classes and trained in the arts of entertainment for men, such as playing musical instruments, singing and dance. By the time of King Sejong (r. 1418-50), prostitution came to dominate the life of kisaeng. There were several proposals to abolish the institution of kisaeng by high-level Confucian scholar-officials. However, the opponents to the proposal successfully defended the institution by arguing among other things the likelihood of increased sex crimes if it were to be abolished.(13)

People online make witchcraft look like you need to be mentally stable constantly to be valid in your practice
It’s stupid
Deities understand mental health they’ve been around for a while
A lot of people don’t realize how much energy spells can take you are not a bad practitioner just because spells drain you
And the amount of spell work you do doesn’t make you a better or worse practitioner

The colonizer attitudes of some white witches are truly mind boggling to me.
You really think it's cool to invade whichever space you feel like and take whatever you want from whomever?
You really find no problem at all with acting exactly like your colonialist forebears and stealing from native people around the world?
You really believe the divine beings, deities, and spirits of religions and practices that were never meant for outsiders are going to look favorably upon you for planting yourself where you don't belong and appropriating what's not rightfully yours to claim?
You, like an entitled spoiled brat, behaving as if the whole world should be handed to you on a silver platter with a big red ribbon wrapped around it just because you want it, honestly feel like it's ok to be this way?

hey in case anyone didn't know this: amatonormativity isn't just 'heteronormativity for aromantic people,' it's not specifically about aromantics and we will get nowhere societally if people continue to assign the assumption that "the expectation and norm that everyone seeks and flourishes in the same type of dyadic, romantic, sexual love relationship" as defined by the person who coined the term, (brake, 2016 p. 61) is something that only faces aros and is only something that aro people benefit from challenging

Kim Seokjin Past Life
This is solely based on intuition and clairs, no cards were used.Feel free to ask any questions you have.Entertainment purposes only.
As I was writing my to do list, he was basically like « hi, I’ll show you my past life right now if you want me to! ».So I followed him and he led me to a very beautiful forest, with a lot of light.He led me to a house where he was living with a wife and a few kids.It was very beautiful and peaceful !I think his wife was very knowledgeable about herbalism and nature, she might have been some sort of famous witch-healer or traditional practitioner, I see many books with drawings of different plants and mushrooms, and a lot of herbs are hanging on thread to dry.It was a small, cosy, warm cottage in the forest with a nice homely fireplace.I’m getting the idea of Celtic or Saxon ?So this life could have happened in the country side of Germany, Ireland, Great Britain or the Netherlands ?Its also possible it happened in Canada among colons but I don’t know enough about Canada to tell 🤔I’m also thinking about this Island near Canada/US which belongs/used to belong to the Netherlands ?
For the most part, the lessons in this life were centered around 2 things :being of service and taking care of his family.I think he took his role very seriously.However, this lesson seems to have seeped out into this life as well, there’s a small sense of “unfinished business” that he wants to tie up in this life, where he has to learn the lesson from a different approach.It’s like in the past life he learnt peace by experiencing it through his environment and in this life he has to learn it by finding it and making it happen in his life, as his current inclination would be avoidance or carelessness and pouting/complaining instead of taking action.I’m also getting a small thing about one of his younger children dying, and him promising the child to meet again.He will meet them again in this life it seems, maybe not as his child but as someone younger than him.
Overall, in this past life, Seokjin was a happy husband and father, who did his best to take care of his family and provide.

feedback-i would say me and jungkook’s orgin story is similar in the way that we both are perfectionist who work relentlessly for what we want at a young age . i don’t know much about his family but i hope it’s not like mine 😰he’s one of my biases bc of his orgin story, working hard so young, so it’s nice that we have that similarity and that you could see that. we both have lilith in the eleventh house, libra venus, and scorpio mars so we do have similar birth charts.
Thank you for your feedback !

hi my name is haylie and my bias is jungkook
your vibe-you give me scorpio and virgo energy. you seem like you animals. you seem forgiving and sweet. you seem like a caring older sibling. you seem like you like read a lot as a kid and had a high reading level. your vibes are like an ancient fairy who looks young.
Hey !Thanks for resending the ask.
I love how both reading and the energy of fairy seems to come out a lot to everyone !Im quite surprised this is what y’all pick up on !
I think you have a similar origin story with Jungkook ?Im not sure exactly what it means,but I think you may have either similar family circumstances, a similar birth chart or the sam living environment.Your futures are however quite different .
