Mercury 馃尙. Your Love Language 馃枻. How Do You Flirt 馃檲馃檴?
Tumblr media
Hello to all the Kosmic Baddies & Space Kadets! I have missed y鈥檃ll SO friggin much鈥ou have ZERO idea! (Just FYI: I have Ketu in the 10H鈥 Rahu in the 4H鈥f y鈥檏now, y鈥檏now鈥ol. Consistency will NEVER be my strong suit.) But I am SO happy to be back. I hope you enjoy this post. As usual, shoutout to my sister鈥 she encouraged me to get back on the horse! And THANK YOU to all the people who have subscribed to my page. It has been really moving to see all of you that have interacted & sent such positive feedback. I appreciate you more than you could ever know! I鈥檓 in the process of growing, and I want you all to know here & now, you are some of my DAY ONES, so be excited for ALL of the things I have in store for you! If you don鈥檛 already, please consider following me on my other social media.
鉁↖nstagram: @thepradapariah
鉁╕ouTube: Kosmostrology
I would love to have you be a part of an already active & engaging community!
ANYWAYS, I wanted to start off with something fun & light! As we officially move into Spooky Season鈥 I couldn鈥檛 think of a better time to sharpen the witchy sexiness within us all. We will be looking at the Mercury placement in your natal chart & how it influences your flirtation style, while also exploring the pros/cons of each. It鈥檚 IMPORTANT to note, that Mercury is neutral & so other placements matter with how this can manifest in your life. Are you more aggressive & upfront? Or are you a hopeless romantic, imagining your lover rather than speaking to them鈥oping they will notice you through telepathic signals?鈥E SHALL SEE!!!
Love Languages are very important for a deeper understanding of how you receive & give love. This is NOT a definitive list, by any means, but I wanted to use the Zodiac to highlight different love languages that you MAY resonate with. This post will hopefully be a tool for you on your journey of self-discovery though dating! And this could be a good place to start OR a fresh perspective on stale dating situations.
Mercury, known as Budh in Vedic astrology, is the prince of planets and governs your abilities of speech, reasoning, and communication, as well as your digestive system, nervous system, and skin. It鈥檚 a neutral planet whose effects on your life depend on the alignment of the other planets in your horoscope [wikihow]
(to) behave as though attracted to or trying to attract someone, but for amusement rather than with serious intentions. [Oxford Language]
Love Language:
Our "love language" describes how we [give]/receive love from others.
They are:
Words of Affirmation - Saying supportive things to your partner
Acts of Service - Doing helpful things for your partner
Receiving Gifts - Giving your partner gifts that tell them you were thinking about them
Quality Time - Spending meaningful time with your partner
Physical Touch - Being close to and caressed by your partner
Each of us differs in the ways that we receive love. By learning to give love in the ways that our partner can best receive it, and by asking our partner to give us love in the ways that we can receive it, we can create stronger relationships.
You can read for your Zodiac Sign & House Placement!
鈥 In this case, one might resonate more than the other! So I encourage you read for both placements!
If you鈥檙e feeling a little frisky, you can also read for your Venus placement because we are talking about 鈥渓ove鈥/relationships/dating

馃尙Mercury in Aries/First House
Tarot Card: Page of Wands
If you have Mercury in Aries/1H, then you are a 鈥済et it how you live it鈥 type b*tch! When it comes to flirting, shy is NOT the first word that comes to mind. You like to be upfront with your partners & can鈥檛 stand someone who beats around the bush. You ARE the bush. A burning bush鈥o be exact. (S/o to you if you get the reference.) You are a playful lover & have an optimistic & sometimes naive approach to dating鈥 this can make you a very childlike flirt. Being ruled by Mars, you are extremely reactionary. You are the definition of picking up what someone else is putting down鈥 As you get older, you will grow into initiating more, but you will ALWAYS be down for a fun, banter with someone you are interested in.
You may be the type of lover to start verbal arguments, just to spice things up a little bit. If you find yourself getting bored with a potential mate鈥ell鈥hey might as well kiss you goodbye & keep it pushing because you won鈥檛 stick around long for someone not willing to entertain your more youthful whims. If you have Mercury in the 1H in particular, you may flirt by telling a beaux about your accomplishments and lead with your competitive spirit. You may be attracted to people you meet at the gym鈥 something about seeing someone all sweaty & fit can really turn you on.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is you LOVE the thrill of the chase. When someone has sparked your interest romantically, you will desire to be in constant communication with them. As I stated earlier, you are not shy. You don鈥檛 mind sending 2/3 text in a row if they don鈥檛 respond back quick enough. This can be enduring to the right partner, demonstrating loyalty & engagement, but to others, you may come off as 鈥渢oo much鈥. Don鈥檛 worry about it!!!! If you are 鈥渢oo much鈥 for them, then by default, they are 鈥渘ot enough鈥 for you. Just be mindful that not everyone has the speed that you possess when it comes to going after what you want. You will do well with a fellow Mercury in Fire Placement or Air placement. I suggest you stay away from Earth & Water sign Mercury until you learn patience within your own self鈥 & that can be a lifelong journey. Your mind is very goal oriented, but also very short-sighted at times. Learn to balance it if you want to be in a long-lasting relationship. Everything can鈥檛 always move at your time.
Now, as much as you love the chase, you may not love the stability of 鈥渨inning鈥 as much. After you win the number one spot, you may want to mooooovvveeee on to the next cute thing that crosses your path. This can lead to attracting & entertaining truly unavailable partners. Because this is just a flirty post, it鈥檚 important to highlight that you are a MAJOR MAJOR MAAAJJOORRR flirt, but not necessarily because you are seeking a permeant relationship. This can manifest one of two ways (mostly), you can either fall head over heels with someone very quickly & then lose the passion for them just as quickly OR you never take relationships seriously to began with & you just enjoy catching a spark & getting a rise out of someone鈥 (sometimes) a mixture of both. Either way, you are a flirt to your core & you love a little competition when it comes to your dating life with your partners. You love a good break-up to make-up type relationship, particularly in your youth, but you鈥檙e flirty power truly shines for letting people know what you want/expect quickly. You are not about wasting anytime!

馃尙Mercury in Taurus/Second House
Tarot Card: King of Pentacles
If you have Mercury in Taurus/2H, your flirtation style is quite subtle. You possess an elegance in your speech, that most would envy. You also constantly have beauty, luxury & pleasure on the mind, so you lead with your senses. You may have a beautiful & sultry speaking voice, you may carry scent very well, & you CERTAINLY know how to set the vibe with great music, food & wine. Why? Because you ARE the vibe. Opposed to your Aries predecessor, you believe that slow & steady wins the race. You are a flirt simply because people are always trying to flirt with you! When someone approaches you, they may lead with 鈥渨here did you get that shirt?鈥 Or, 鈥淲hat perfume are you wearing鈥, just to get your attention. And the answer probably will be 鈥測ou can鈥檛 afford it鈥. (Just kidding. Lol, you may know how to ball on a budget, but you tend to have expensive/exquisite taste.) You set the tone for some of the most sensual lovers.
Because you are so tuned in to your senses when it comes to dating, you take your time getting to know your partners before you spoil them with the full effect. You are a flirt who loves more of a slow burn & passion that builds overtime. You don鈥檛 mind taking things slowly, as long as you know the time is worth your investment.
The Pro/Con of this Mercury placement, is you believe in brutal honesty. This is a blessing & a curse. On one hand, your love interest never has to worry about where they stand with you or how you鈥檙e feeling. You have no problem opening up (after a while) to speak your mind clearly. And open communication is KEY to successful relationships. So this is a big big big ole plus. But鈥n the OTHER hand鈥ou can be so caught up in your own truth, you may forget to actually listen to &/or consider your partner鈥檚 truth as well. BE CAREFUL. Taurus is a fixed energy, but fixed doesn鈥檛 always mean right鈥ven if you鈥檙e right a lot. In the beginning dating phases, you may be too cutting with your words & turn parters off. This isn鈥檛 inherently a bad thing, but just be mindful that there is an art to honesty & it doesn鈥檛 always require brutality. You can soften your tone from time to time鈥 sometimes the truth is overrated. (Now, full disclosure: I aaammm a Mercury in the 8H native, soooooo鈥.I do admit that I鈥檓 the opposite & a bit biased, but there is balance to everything! I believe in a 鈥渘eed to know basis鈥 type communication style.)
Once you are in a more grounded dating routine, you are a loyal, stable, giving, kind & a disciplined flirt. You will be far more consistent w your lovers when communicating鈥 keeping an open dialogue when you move past some stubbornness. You appreciate a lover who is well-kept for. You鈥檒l dish out the compliments to a well groomed, articulate & financially savvy partner, but your REAL flirt style lies in the way you touch. You will most likely communicate to your partners through cuddling & quality time. You will cook for people you care about, enticing them with all the goods in the world. You are more comfortable displaying affection through a soft touch or a simple kiss on the forehand. You love your partners to feel present in the moment, enjoying being alive & indulging in the sensual pleasures that life has to bring. YOU are a flirtation connoisseur!
馃枻Love Language: Physical Touch
鈥淚f your love language is physical touch, then that means you prefer physical expressions of love over all other expressions (such as verbal compliments or gifts). Note that physical touch as a love language is not all about sex, although sex can be an important aspect of a romantic relationship.鈥 -verywellmind.com

馃尙Mercury in the Gemini/Third House
Tarot Card: Queen of Swords
If you have Mercury in Gemini/3H you were BLESSED with the gift of gab. You are quick witted, light hearted & know how to entertain a person of interest with your sharp intellect. Because you are the most curious of the Zodiac, your flirt style involves asking A LOT of questions. You may find that as you鈥檙e getting to know people, you learn a heck of a lot about them & they know close to NOTHING about you. You could be SO good at being elusive, lovers may not even catch your name! There is a certain mystique that comes from this energy because you are the ultimate shape-shifter. It鈥檚 giving very Taylor Swift, 鈥淔ind out what you want, be that girl for a month鈥 energy with a fun & enthusiastic twist! When you flirt, people are enthralled by your knowledge. You know a little about a lot & can make yourself seem like an expert. You keep up with current events, gossip鈥 basically anything that peaks your interest, & this makes you a one of a kind type person, not limited by close-mindedness & simplicity. In fact, some people could find you really difficult to keep up with. When it comes to small talk you are the best of the best.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is your mind is constantly racing. People who are interested in you/you are interested in may not realize just how deep into logic you fall at the prospect of a new relationship. Although you appear fluid & unfazed by casual dating & could be really good at it, you either desire something deeper bc of other placements in your chart, OR the idea of commitment really scares you. You let your imagination run wild very quickly & have a difficult time grounding serious energy. Again, this is a blessing & a curse. You鈥檙e able to navigate the dating world really well because you don鈥檛 take it too seriously, HOWEVER when it comes to making a deeper commitment you could take it FAR TOO seriously or not seriously enough. This can be confusing for your lovers because they never quite understand where they stand with you. Sometimes you鈥檙e all in & sometimes you鈥檙e all out. It would take a special person that would be interested in getting to know you past the shallow surface level that could truly peak your interest. You of all signs are able to hide behind banter, although you have a deeply curious & possibly oversaturated mind when it comes to getting to know someone. Regardless of how you flutter into people鈥檚 lives, they are always awe struck in your presence & feel a void when you leave. It really is a super power.
You are an amazing flirt! You get an A++ on the flirt test! Just be mindful that when you want something more serious & to explore truths in deep relationships, you will have to stop shape-shifting & be your authentic self鈥攚hoever that is. You have to truly let people in to your brain because people won鈥檛 naturally be able to keep up with how quickly you move. You could meet someone, imagine your life together and then 鈥渙oooo squirrel鈥 & never think about that person again. Don鈥檛 hide behind your gift of being able to steer conversation鈥 make an effort to have deep and meaningful conversations & you鈥檒l be surprised how much people adore your natural, flighty & curious selves. I would stay away from Water Mercury placements more than anything. It鈥檚 not impossible, but because they operate from a more empathetic space, you would REALLY have to work on your communication because you may appear to cold & distant even if that isn鈥檛 your intention. It鈥檚 a catch 22 to have Mercury in a Mercury ruled sign because Mercury isn鈥檛 the most sexual of planets. You intellectualize relationships & could definitely find yourself on the Sapiosexual spectrum: meaning 鈥淪apiosexuality is a type of sexuality that involves being more attracted by the contents of a person's mind than by the appearance of their body. In order to feel sexually attracted to another person, a sapiosexual person must first feel intellectually stimulated鈥 according to verywellmind.com. You may not grasp the depth of others emotions because you feel flirting & dating is more of a mind game at times. Just be aware & have fun! Use your gifts wisely!

馃尙Mercury in Cancer/Fourth House
Tarot Card: Page of Cups
If you have Mercury in Cancer/4H, your flirtation style is sweet & wholesome. You may be VERY VERY VERY VEEERRRYYYY shy when it comes to expressing your emotions because you can be caught trying to rationalize your emotions logically which is inherently a trap door. You may not even consider yourself much of a flirt like your Gemini predecessors. Of all placements, Mercury in Cancer is one that may be most likely to be a demisexual; meaning 鈥淒emisexuality is a sexual orientation in which a person feels sexually attracted to someone only after they've developed a close emotional bond with them,鈥 according to clevelandclinic.org. (You may or may not resonate with that label, it鈥檚 okay!!! I am not trying to define who you are & how you love. I鈥檓 just offering an outside perspective! Take it or leave it! Love you either way :)) Even if you are a flirtatious person, who is comfortable meeting people & having light hearted conversations, depending on other placements in your chart, you are most moved by relationships that make you feel comfortable enough to truly express how you鈥檙e feeling鈥 even if you don鈥檛 know how to put those feelings into words just yet! There is a natural loving quality that you have within your speech. You love nurturing those you care about & would make sure that their basic needs are taken care of if you are truly interested in them. You鈥檒l want to know if they ate, how their day went & if they need anything from you when they get home. This is the true power of empathy this Mercury placement can posses. It is truly enduring to the right person of interest!
The Pros/Cons of this placement is you are so deeply in tune with your own emotions, you can make the poor assumption that those around you can read your mind about how you鈥檙e feeling. TRUTH BOMB!!!! They absolutely can鈥檛. In fact, I would suggest that you partner with a fellow Mercury in Water sign because there can be SOME telepathy (still not mind readers though), particularly Mercury in Scorpio/8H OR Mercury in Earth placement because they MAY have more patience when it comes to your communication style. You may be the type to burst into tears before you even start talking because you are so overwhelmed with emotions. THIS IS NOT INHERENTLY A BAD THING! This is just something to beware of and I suggest you channel this energy into something creative! For instance, instead of crying about how your lover didn鈥檛 notice that you cut your hair鈥rite a song about it! This can be a highly creative placement as long as you鈥檙e able to express what you鈥檙e feeling in a constructive manner. You鈥檙e empathetic nature is a wonderful gift to give to the world, but most importantly to your partners! They will appreciate the care & consideration you give to them during the courting phases of a new relationship!
When you are able to balance your own emotions with understanding your partners communication style as well, you can have one of the deeper level connections鈥 hence why flirting may work for or against you. If you are a flirt flirt FLIRT, you could be hiding behind your deeper emotions, not wanting to let anyone take advantage of your kindness鈥ut on the other hand, if you prefer to stay in your shell, you should put yourself out there enough to meet someone who fulfills your needs for companionship鈥 someone who cares about you the same way you care about them. Try not to be emotionally manipulative when it comes to dating either. You could fall into the trap of flirting by playing the damsel in distress role. Again, not always a bad thing (some placements play too tough & that鈥檚 not great either, there is always a balance) but when it comes to developing true & authentic connections, the victim/savior dynamic can only take you but so far & ultimately leave you feeling more abandoned than loved in the end. Lead with you caring side & you will find the partner who understands your need to be emotionally understood!
馃枻Love Language: Quality Time
鈥淧eople who speak the love language of quality time want to be the object of their lover's undivided attention. They want to feel cherished and prioritized, and rather than receiving gifts, words, acts, or touch, they prefer to simply spend meaningful time together.鈥 鈥 blinkist.com

馃尙Mercury in Leo/Fifth House
Tarot Card: King of Wands
If you have Mercury in Leo/5H, your flirtation style is bold & in your face. You KNOW your worth & you get off on letting people know you know it! You know how to make an entrance & people are naturally entranced by your regal & authoritative nature. People of interest may find it hard to approach you because you seem so out of their league. It鈥檚 only natural that you get put on a pedal stool. You care a lot about your appearance & how you come off to others. You don鈥檛 like to be outshines when it comes to flirting, so you may be drawn to individuals who are well liked or already in relationships. Why? Not because you鈥檙e a home-wrecker, but because you may prefer some competition. You carry yourself in such a way, you are hard to miss. When you speak, people listen. You may also be HIGHLY creative, so your need for expression can draw in an audience that is amazed by your talent & beauty. Being ruled by the Sun, you really know how to light up a room.
There is an aura about you that screams 鈥渄on鈥檛 talk to me, unless you can buy me a diamond ring鈥. You may or not be materialistic, of course this depends on other placements in your chart, but you do come off that way regardless. You only want the best of what the world has to offer鈥 the best food, the best friends & the best lovers! You can be quite selective about who you chose to flirt with because you are naturally an extremely loyal person. You want to make sure that you are aligning yourself with the best, the brightest & the most beautiful. You are the definition of having standards when it comes to dating! And that鈥檚 an amazing gift.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is that you can come off as very 鈥渕e鈥 centered. People can take your need to feel important as you assuming they are less important, which isn鈥檛 necessarily the case. You are a very open & caring person & would fight for anyone you love鈥 however, in the dating phases, it may seem as if you only care about yourself. How do you combat this? Just remember to take a step back from time to time & spoil your partner by listening to them & giving them your undivided attention. Combat your urge to interject with your personal antidotes. Don鈥檛 worry, you鈥檒l have your time to shine again! I highly suggest you seek out like minded Mercury placements, like other Fire signs or even Air Signs. They will be able to understand that you are not so self-absorbed, but rather just speaking from your personal experiences. You will just have to be careful to not create an atmosphere that feels as if you & your person of interest are fighting for dominance in communication. This can be done with patience & understanding.
You are a razzle-dazzle kind of lover & anyone who is amazing enough to peak your interest is a lucky-ducky indeed! You will go to war for those you care about & your unwavering loyalty is something to envy. Those that are attracted to you will be overjoyed with how much fun & creativity you bring into their lives. You have great taste & only enjoy the best for you and your loved one! A great flirt you are indeed鈥o the rich鈥 I mean 鈥渞ight鈥濃 person, of course!

馃尙Mercury in Virgo/Sixth House
Tarot Card: Queen of Pentacles
If you have Mercury in Virgo/6H your flirtation style is particularly unique & interesting. Why? Because you tend to be very shy & to yourself. You鈥檙e a deep thinker, constantly problem solving & attempting to get the most perfect outcome to any given situation. You tend to be EXTREMELY detail oriented & focus on the little things in life. Because you have this desire for perfection, you are very cautious with your words & expressions. You, like Cancer Mercury placements, tend to stick to yourself鈥 you may not be the most open person when pursuing a new lover. Instead of talking about your feelings鈥ou would THRIVE in the Era of love letters! You are beautifully articulate & well spoken, so when you are able to physically write your emotions out, you can use words & written language as a tool to express your most loving thoughts. If this placement was a movie鈥 it would be The Notebook. Truly a romantic placement, but quite honestly, misunderstood when it comes to flirting. You, like your Leo predecessor, care A LOT about how you come off. You keep manicured nails & toes, clean hair, because you care about cleanliness & this is a subtle way of letting your person of interest know you are, in fact, interested. When you truly desire someone, you want to appear your best at all times. You get voted most likely to cancel a date because you broke a nail. Again, others may perceive this as shallow or you using it as an excuse to distance yourself, but that is so far from the truth. As Mercury is your ruling planet, you are a master communicator鈥 particularly when it comes to poetry & prose鈥 but Mercury is arguably the most a-sexual planet, so it is a bit of a catch 22. Like your brother sign Gemini, may THINK too much about love, instead of actually experiencing it. The difference is Geminis LOVE to flirt, kind of like an intellectual sparring match, where you love the idea of love & would rather write about it in your journal, rather than approach that person in real life. How cute!
The Pros/Cons of this placement is that you can be hard to read for your person of interest. You really have to make it a point to communicate how you鈥檙e feeling about them in poetic/artistic ways. Virgo/6H placement naturally carry a hermetic type energy, craving solitude to think things through. This is not inherently a bad thing, it just means you have to do due diligence of incorporating potential lovers into your life/routines & ultimately into your mind. When this placement is in a low vibration or simply underdeveloped, you may 鈥渇lirt鈥 by being nitpicky & starting petty arguments with your lovers. This placement can have an undying need to be right & miss the big picture because they are too busy focusing on small details. BE MINDFUL! This is something that makes your mind great & quick & honestly, necessary in the world to have such a wonderful problem solver鈥 HOWEVER, this can be a turn off when in the early dating phases because it can come off in a way that you feel as if you a better than someone else OR that the people you date need fixing, & aren鈥檛 already good enough. This may not be your intention, but be sure to let people express themselves in the best way they know how. Critique to help, but don鈥檛 get stuck just criticizing to criticize. This can be a very thin balance, but vital for the longevity of any relationship.
You are a dedicated & service oriented type lover. You would much rather demonstrate your love through doing, rather than just out right 鈥渇lirting鈥. You show up 15-minutes early for a date you are truly excited about & make sure to wear the finest linens. Although you may appear to go above & beyond for lovers in the beginning phases, if you feel as if you are being taken for granted, you are on to the next quick, fast & in a hurry, like you brother sign, Gemini. You don鈥檛 hesitate to keep it pushing. This is the beauty of having a Mercury ruled sign in the Mercury placement鈥 your mind is quick, so sometimes you can go through lover鈥檚 quickly. Leaving them in the DUST for some of the pettiest reasons! While you鈥檙e young鈥njoy!!! But as you grow, you may need to understand that the perfect partner doesn鈥檛 exist, so you鈥檒l never find what you鈥檙e seeking if you don鈥檛 allow a little fluidity into your love life. Learn to have fun & be open! You鈥檇 probably do best with a fellow Mercury in Virgo person, simply because Virgo energy understands Virgo energy best鈥f not, Taurus/Capricorn COULD be a great match also!

馃尙Mercury in Libra/Seventh House
Tarot Card: Page of Swords
If you have Mercury in Libra/7H, You. Are. The. ULTIMATE. Flirt. Only rivaled by Gemini, although you can be FAR more touchy-feely. Of course this depends on other placements in your chart, but you KNOW how to turn on the charm. You are charisma personified. You are most likely an attractive person on the outside, but regardless of your outer appearance, you have an extremely attractive mind. You are balanced & logical & want nothing but fairness when it comes to your relationships. Unlike your opposite sign, Aries, you lead with the other person. You flatter them. You don鈥檛 mind dishing out the compliments & don鈥檛 see your romantic interest as competition, but rather a compliment to you. You, like Leos, have HIGH standards when it comes to your lovers. You won鈥檛 just settle down with anyone. You go through a LONG process of LITERALLY weighing your options, so you can be hard to pin down. You, of all signs, are able to find beauty & equality in all things鈥ence why you are SUCH a flirt. If you see something/someone you like, you have no problem telling them you like their shirt with a quick wink, HOWEVER, very rarely are you truly trying to make something last out of a simple playful interaction. This can lead you to having a plethora of admirers, but no one that you see anything seriously with. This is a great placement to have for business dealing & if you鈥檙e interested in politics. You know how to read a room, read a person & act accordingly. You are so dang likable it can be sickening! The irony in this placement is you take your relationships VERY seriously. You actually prefer to be in a commitment more than any other signs. You enjoy being dutiful & find purpose when you are integrated into someone else鈥檚 fabric of life. BUT. When it comes to casual dating, you are gone with the wind fabulous. You are here for a good time & not a long time. You can separate a serious commitment from a fling like no other. This can be INFURIATING to people who are trying to pursue you because you seem so unbothered even though you gave them a wonderful compliment & treated them so well.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is how long is can take for you to pick a partner to settle down with. In the dating realm, this is almost a perfect placement. You are considerate, passionate when you need to be, lovable & fun! But on the other hand, when it comes to taking a dating situation to the next level, you can get cold feet鈥 again, weighing the pros & cons of being in a relationship because you actually understand the sacrifice that it takes to be in a commitment. And sadly, if you don鈥檛 think the person if worth sacrificing for entirely OR you鈥檙e just not in a space to sacrifice to being with...that lover can FORGET IT! As much as you enjoy beauty & light-hearted dating, Libra is still very much a masculine sign. Regardless of gender (or lack of gender), you tend to want to be the provider in your relationships. You enjoy the delicate balance of give & take, feminine & masculine energy, in any of your longterm commitments. And if anyone disrupts that, you will not stick around. On the outside looking in, you may seem wishy-washy & non-committal, but that actually isn鈥檛 the case. You WILL commit, but only after you have thought about it from all angles & sides. You are rational minded & sometimes this can hurt the people around you because what you said in passing may have meant nothing to you, but everything to them! PLUS, when you are in a full blown commitment, you may still come across as flirty, whether you intend to or not. Your partners will have to require a lot of trust & understanding about how you express yourself. You鈥檙e just a 鈥渘ice鈥 person who wants the world to be a more beautiful place鈥 one flirt at a time. I recommend you stick with other Air Signs or Fire Signs Mercury placements, because other people may misinterpret your nature. But if you鈥檙e with a Fire sign, they will desire fast communication & that may overwhelm you from time to time so just be mindful.
All in all, this is a wonderful placement when it comes to communication & flirting in casual relationships because you are so fair minded. You don鈥檛 like to stop on people鈥檚 toes, but sometimes you can feel like you鈥檙e leading people on if they don鈥檛 understand that you鈥檙e just a naturally flirty person. You can hand out words, kisses & compliments out like candy! Be careful that you鈥檙e not rotting someone鈥檚 sweet tooth!
馃枻Love Language: Physical Touch
鈥淚f your love language is physical touch, then that means you prefer physical expressions of love over all other expressions (such as verbal compliments or gifts). Note that physical touch as a love language is not all about sex, although sex can be an important aspect of a romantic relationship.鈥 -verywellmind.com

馃尙Mercury in Scorpio/Eighth House
Tarot Card: King of Cups
If you have Mercury in Scorpio/8H, your flirtation style isn鈥檛 so 鈥渇lirty鈥 in the traditional sense. With this placement, you tend not to trust people too easily, so you鈥檙e not the biggest fan of small talk. This inherent contradiction of a 鈥渘on-communicative鈥 mercury makes you an interesting & complex lover that people are drawn to get to know. You more so operate from 鈥渆nergies鈥 & 鈥渧ibes鈥, & people are either drawn to you like a moth to a flame or repelled by you like a moth to flying insect spray鈥ol. However, you have an unmistakable allure & you shift energy when you walk into a room. Just as elusive as a Gemini & yet somehow as dreamy as a Pisces鈥 this unique combination makes your lovers fixed on you, projecting their deepest darkest desires on you, wanting to uncover whatever it is you鈥檙e hiding. Almost as if you are a lost cave of hidden knowledge & gems, just waiting to be discovered. Truth is鈥ou鈥檙e most likely just shy! Now, don鈥檛 get me wrong, you are certainly one of the deepest thinkers of the Zodiac. You have fascinating interest in the occult & keep your feelings close to your chest, but this is usually a defense mechanism to an extent because you fear if people know what you鈥檙e thinking, then they may be able to control your mind. And as Mars as your ruler, you are all about control鈥 and in this case, mind control. This works 2 ways. When you flirt, it may come off as obsession. Much like your brother sign, Aries, when you 鈥渨ant鈥 something/someone, it鈥檚 not just want, it鈥檚 desire, it鈥檚 craving, it鈥檚 intoxicating infatuation. You can be a bold lover, striking when the time is right鈥ut if the time is not right鈥ou will wait & wait & wait & wait & wait鈥 like a Jaguar hunting its unassuming prey.
The Pros & Cons of this placement is that you have a mighty powerful gaze & aura surrounding you. If the color black was a person, it would be you. You鈥檙e beautifully dark, but yet the depths & hues of the nuances of your personality are hard to tell unless someone is REALLY looking. You test lovers more than any other sign to make sure they are truly giving you their undivided attention鈥 much like what you have given to them. You expect loyalty & honesty from your lovers ALTHOUGH you may not give them the same in return. Your version of honesty can be quite controversial. You believe in the 鈥淧olicy of Truth鈥, if you truly care about someone & want to know them on a deeper level, you will leave out things that don鈥檛 put you in the best light. This placement can be very manipulative when it comes to how & what you choose to communicate to a person that you desire. Your lovers will have to earn your trust before you give them truth & this can be a SLOW process. Because of this personality trait, you may or may not be all that 鈥渇lirty鈥. In Western Astrology, Scorpios are almost always described as the sexual beings of the zodiac & that is true鈥OWEVER, you crave a deeeeeppppp level of intimacy & connection that casual dating/flirting usually doesn鈥檛 allow, making you one of the most difficult partners to actually end up in the bedroom with. You can come across as very fickle & hard to pin-down to people you are not equally trying to connect with. With this placement, you will not connect with just anyone, thus making you one of the least 鈥渇lirty鈥 Mercury placements at first glance. Although you may be able to develop a way with words as time passes, you must at least feel you will be able to gain something out of the exchange. You are far too intense for casual love affairs. Now passionate love affairs鈥 is right up your ally!
Having Mercury in such a deep sign, again makes you a deep thinker, unlike other placements who gloss over people, you want to know EVERYTHING & I mean EVERYTHING about a potential mate. The irony here is, your way of flirting can be a form of stalking. You will dig & dig & dig & dig into the personal life of lovers, or you will ask the deepest questions to attempt to get into their psychology鈥 deep psych evaluations & damn near hypnotism is your way of 鈥渇lirting鈥. Many of your lovers may not even realize you are in pursuit of them, while on the other hand, you may not comprehend how deeply someone is wanting to connect with you. Due to the mixture of pure shyness & mystique, you are an astounding lover that oozes of pure, unfiltered, sex appeal WHEN IT IS EARNED. The trickiest part of this placement, is people will want to fill in the blanks about you if they don鈥檛 know. You can be subject to nasty rumors or people making CRAZY assumptions about you, but it鈥檚 simply because they want to explain the inexplicable. You have a certain energy that people dream of exploring, yet may not be up for how deep they would have to dive in order to truly get to know you. Any lover that only gets to know you in a causal sense will always be left with a lingering feeling of wondering what you were truly hiding in that closet of yours.

馃尙Mercury in Sagittarius/Ninth House
Tarot Card: Queen of Wands
If you have Mercury in Sagittarius/9H, your flirtation can take quite a few different forms. As a mutable sign, you鈥檙e like Gemini & Pisces (Virgo, yes, but not so much in this case), so you are able to adapt to any environment, possessing a shape-shifter type energy. The major difference between you & the others is, you believe the truth will set you free, so after awhile, your true colors will always shine through to your romantic interested. You could be attracted to people who are different than you in some way. Sagittarius/9H energy is all about expanding your horizons, & connecting with people of different cultures & backgrounds is a way to see the world through a different set of lenses! This is a wonderful trait because you almost always carry an exoticness within your essence. You may not feel super special in your home town, but once you travel to different areas, people will know that you are not from around there. In this case, seeing as we are talking about Mercury, it shows up particularly in the way you think/communicate. Perhaps you have a distinct accent. You are just as curious as Gemini about the outside world, but instead of focusing on the day to day mechanics & 鈥済ossip鈥, you鈥檇 rather talk about more philosophical questions & debate about religion, meditation & yoga. You honestly flirt by preaching to those you are interested in. You crave someone who is a free thinker & can talk about anything. You are as much of a student of life as you are a teacher and you will not be caught DEAD flirting with a dumb-dumb. Intelligence is what turns you on, but it doesn鈥檛 have to be 鈥渂ook smart鈥. You are so open to different ideas in the world & you value someone who can teach you the laws of the land & navigate the way of the streets. It鈥檚 giving very Princess Jasmine & Aaladin vibes in this case. You will flirt & be attracted to the 鈥渟treet rats鈥 of the world because they can offer you a different experience than what you are used to.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is you can come off as self-righteous and kind of a know-it-all to potential suiters. More than likely, you have received some form of higher education or have traveled around more than your next door neighbor. This is not inherently a bad thing, but this is the magic of knowing when to turn on and off the charm. You could easily want to lead with how worldly & experienced you are, which is an amazing thing, but understand, that is a privilege! So please be mindful not to 鈥渞ub it in鈥 everyone鈥檚 faces that you are an interesting and well-traveled person, and also try not to judge others for not being on the same level as you. Just smile & keep it moving, there is no need to argue. On the other hand, because this can be such a spiritual placement, you may find yourself to be quite 鈥渃lose-minded鈥, when it comes to YOUR religion, YOUR philosophy of life, & YOUR truth. The passion you posses about your views is something that most will admire, BUT if you鈥檙e coming off as someone who assumes they are better or have the moral high ground, again, this can be a turn off to any potential love interest.
Your love for learning & teaching is unique & extraordinary. You carry within you a vessel of knowledge & experiences that some would only dream of! It puts you in a little bit of an awkward situation when it comes to your love life though, because student/teacher relationships aren鈥檛 *supposed* to be 鈥渟exy鈥. This is a bit of a mixed bag. In today鈥檚 society, it can be assumed that a teacher is abusing their power by pursuing a student. (I am not speaking about elementary school through high school!!! I鈥檓 speaking about adult relationships!!!! Think Guru/Yogi student, Preacher/Subject in Congregation etc.) But in your case, you most likely wouldn鈥檛 have it any other way. You desire to learn from your partners. If they can鈥檛 teach you something, then they can kick rocks! You are humbled by a knowledgeable person, who has also spent their life seeking truth, the same way you have. You may find yourself drawn to certain professors or people in powerful positions where people listen to what they have to say. Or, you may be the person who draws a lot of people towards you because you have such a database of wisdom that people find attractive! This has the potential to be a GREAT love affair with the right person, but I wouldn鈥檛 say you are much of a 鈥渇lirt鈥 in the traditional sense. You鈥檇 hand your love interest a book that you found insightful before a bouquet of roses!

馃尙Mercury in Capricorn/Tenth House
Tarot Card: Page of Pentacles
If you have Mercury in Capricorn/10H, your flirting style is business, business, business. This is not to say that you are NOT flirty, because you definitely can be鈥 particularly as you get older鈥 but you flirt with a goal in mind. You鈥檒l flirt for a job promotion, you鈥檒l flirt for priority seating at the fanciest restaurants, you鈥檒l flirt for a discount at Trader Joe鈥檚. You flirt to save money & flirt to earn money. That is what really matters to you. Again, this may come off as shallow, or 鈥済old-digger鈥 type vibes, but there is nothing more than this Mercury sign craves more than mental SECURITY, which goes hand in hand with financial security. You depend on stable relationships, so you can take dating toooooo seriously. If you don鈥檛 see the benefit of investing in someone longterm, then鈥ou just won鈥檛. It鈥檚 open & shut. With this placement, you are VERY selective with your words. You don鈥檛 like to waste time on meaningless conversations because you are a firm believer that time is money. HOWEVER, when you find someone that is worth your time, you give everything to that person & more. It is worth noting here, that Capricorn energy is represented by The Devil card in Tarot. Meaning, that Capricorn energy is the embodiment of temptation & desire. You, more than any other sign, actually know how to entrance your person of interest by talking. You can speak of wonderful plans & goals you have, expensive things that you鈥檝e bought, rare wines that you鈥檝e tasted & lure in an unassuming subject like pray. You even may have a very distinct & sultry voice that is low & earthy. You have a resonance with others because you appear so grounded, cool, calm & collected when you speak. This can instantly be a turn on to the target you have in mind.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is you can take quite a long time to learn how to express yourself, leaving your partners in a very confused state. You, like your Cancer opposite, can spend too much time trying to rationalize your needs in a relationship, rather than actually experiencing the relationship. Because you can be so goal oriented, you don鈥檛 leave much time for error or fun in your early years. This can come off as cold & distant to people attempting to pursue you in a romantic way鈥 it鈥檚 almost as if you are always just out of reach because you are too busy working on your next big project! This isn鈥檛 a bad thing, per say, it just means you have to carve out time for your lovers & be intentional with your dating. Dating & getting to know people just for the heck of it, isn鈥檛 a waste of time! It can be nice to go out, laugh & take your mind off of the stress of work or your ambitions. So there is magic in remaining open to potential lovers, you may be surprised at how much you enjoy other people鈥檚 company that aren鈥檛 talking about work work work. You are WAY more of a do-er than a talker & this can be taken for granted in your relationships. Make sure you end up with someone who understands your need for validation when it comes to the work you do & the bacon that you bring home. You will be the BIGGEST flirt on the planet for someone who acknowledges & appreciate the level of focus & discipline you exude when it comes to your work & romantic relations.
You honestly have the potential to be one of the more flirty signs of the Zodiac, because Saturn, your Mercury ruler, is all about delay and NOT denial. You could have had issues reading or writing as a child that have made you shy, but I bet you鈥檙e one of the best readers & writers now! Same with flirting! You may feel awkward in your teens & young 20s, not knowing how to navigate such a crazy dating world, but as you learn the tricks of the trade, you will be able to have one of a kind banter with powerful & influential people. You age like wine, only getting better, tastier & more expensive with time!

馃尙Mercury in Aquarius/Eleventh House
Tarot Card: King of Swords
If you have Mercury in Aquarius/11H, your flirtation style is hard to easily put into words. You鈥檙e really not much of a flirt UNTIL you are SUPER DUPER comfortable with someone. You flirt by making friends. You鈥檙e open-minded, like Sagittarius, but you鈥檙e retrained like Capricorn. This puts you in a very delicate balance when it comes to casual dating. You tend to be extremely futuristic & innovative in your thinking鈥 in fact, this placement can signify a genius level comprehension skill, great scientist & technical/skilled artist have this placement鈥 so it may be awkward for you when first meeting new love interest. You may have deep interest in Sci-Fi or technology. You like gadgets & can constantly be tinkering with things, or have a very niche interest like鈥edic astrology for example, so it can be more difficult for you to connect to people on a day to day basis just because your ideas can seem so radical and 鈥渙ut-there鈥. This is a BEAUTIFUL thing to someone who understands you. They will never be bored with the conversation, although at times, they may have trouble keeping up. I suggest you date fellow Air sign Mercurys because they will be interested in the same things you鈥檙e interested in, or at least be curious enough to look into it! Because you march to the beat of your own drum, your flirt style will be equally as unique as you are. You could flirt by explaining to someone quantum mechanics or by telling them how Picasso was an absolute genius when it came to the color blue in his blue series or the difference between the tropical astrology system & the sidereal. The conversations are limitless with you and a person of interest!
The Pros/Cons of this placement is you may feel quite isolated when it comes to communicating your ideas to potential lovers. You may feel as if your ideas are 鈥渢oo weird鈥 and you don鈥檛 want to scare them off! OR you just have troubles relating to the 鈥渃ommon man鈥 because your brain is just far beyond keeping up with Kardashians. You care about world peace, and helping others, so you may not be super interested in the latest gossip. I mean C鈥檓on鈥HERE ARE KIDS DYING IN AFRICA, KIM! (That鈥檚 a joke鈥ol) You care more about how the algorithms work on instagram, rather than scrolling through the content, so this can make you feel outcast in the dating scene. Feeling excluded is the hallmark of Aquarius energy. THIS ISN鈥橳 A BAD THING!!!!! It just means it may take you a longer time to find your soul tribe & chances are, your soulmate will be a friend first before a lover. Because you have a fixed placement, you cherish the people who come into your life that understand you on a mental & spiritual level. You may not care as much about looks, gender or social class as some of the other placements do when it comes to dating鈥 you can be very flexible when it comes to who you fall in love with, just because it鈥檚 so hard for you to find people who vibrate on your same wavelength. YOU have the mind that keeps the culture moving forward. You are the inventors & creators of the generations! You鈥檙e the trend setters & trailblazers which can be a lonely lonely road when it comes to causal things like dating. Again, it is imperative for you to find likeminded people who get you or get that they don鈥檛 get you but still don鈥檛 judge you for it! You鈥檙e more of a mental flirt than anything else! You enjoy intelligent conversation & would die of boredom listening to someone who is small minded.
You will be one of the most fascinating & intriguing lover to anyone who actually takes the time to get to know you! In some cases, a Scorpio/8H mercury may be compatible because they will view you as a never ending puzzle they need to solve. Either way, you鈥檒l need to be with someone who wants to dig deeper into you, past your seemingly eccentric nature & get to know the loving kind side of you. You are more likely to fall for a friend or someone in your friendship circle because you know you have things in common. You could also be far more comfortable dating on an online setting, in virtual realities of some sort! Things in common/true compatibility in the most important thing to you when it comes to flirting & dating. You don鈥檛 care much for frivolous banter although you may be good at it鈥 there will always be a voice inside of you saying 鈥渢his person is sooooooo dumb鈥. All I ask, is that you remain humble when meeting people, different people are in different areas of life & we can鈥檛 judge them on the level they are on. The moment you do that & start accepting people for who they are, the 鈥淩ight鈥 people will be drawn into your energy field & you鈥檒l feel truly accepted by those that love you & that you love!
Side Side Side note: You are also the sign that would most likely thrive in a polyamorous relationship (multiple partners at once), because you are capable of loving multiple friends at one time. You very well may not be interested in open-relationships, because you are a fixed sign & value loyalty 鈥& stability鈥ut you may do well in one. You wouldn鈥檛 fall victim to jealousy & possessiveness as much as other signs.

馃尙Mercury in Pisces/Twelfth House
Tarot Card: Queen of Cups
If you have Mercury in Pisces/12H, your flirtation style works on a cosmic level. You radiate vibes, like sonic waves, that lure in your object of desire. You can be quite shy in real life, but there is an elusive quality about you that causes people to yearn for you & be drawn towards you. You are extremely slippery when it comes to the dating field, because you, like Aquarius, your predecessor, are naturally extraordinarily other worldly! (After all, you are 2 houses after the 10H of the world, so you鈥檝e busted out of the matrix in some way). You seem to be neither here, nor there. You float through life & people may never know or not know where they stand with you because chances are, they may not even know where you are. Your dreamlike nature is a literal dream come true for some, & so flirting with you seems as if they met someone from the movies. You鈥檙e real, but are you real? You鈥檙e here, but are you here? That type of energy. When you like someone, you will want to dissolve into each other鈥檚 world. You鈥檒l want to be with them, meeting on such a spiritual level, that language isn鈥檛 the prime way you communicate. You feel your partners rather than listen to them鈥hich can work for and against you, depending on how strong your relationship is with the other person. Because you are one of the most empathetic placements, when it comes to a person of interest, you want to be valuable to them by helping them through their personal spiritual journey. Due to this nature, you may be attracted/drawn to lost souls & lost souls may be attracted/drawn to you as well. You prefer a partner with a past, because you desire to show them a bright & escapist type future. You are called to break chains for your lovers, so your flirty style can be wholesome & very loving.
The Pros/Cons of this placement is exactly what makes it great鈥 you鈥檙e otherworldliness. You understand the world through vibrations & energies, not necessarily though words & actions. You see deeply into people & have an extremely psychic ability that only a privileged few are privy to. You probably communicate through music & sound. You would be far more comfortable sharing a song or writing a song about your feelings for someone than being able say it! And to be fair, the songs you write/share may not even have lyrics! You would be more likely to flirt by telling someone 鈥測ou make me feel like the color orange鈥 or 鈥測ou remind me of the discord in Beethoven鈥檚 Fifth鈥 than being like 鈥渉ey, I think you鈥檙e cute!鈥. This is wonderfully romantic, but if your partner doesn鈥檛 think like you do, well, then you run the risk of feeling rejected & emotionally abandoned by them. This mercury sign, more than other, has to learn how to communicate on a practical level. With your opposite sign being Virgo, master communicators, you get left holding the bag of trying to figure out how to put your experiences into words that people can relate & identify with. Of COURSE, I recommend that you channel your energy into art, you will be understood by some, but you have to put yourself out there & not get lost in the fantasy of it all. Jupiter, your ruling planet, is all about blending the lines & expansion, which is a beautiful thing, but sometimes the real restraints that we have in the world can limit people being able to connect鈥 especially when it comes to fleeting relationships.
Your nature can be so light & inviting, or it can be like a dark black abyss with no end in sight鈥uch like the oceans fish inhabit. People will want to project their deepest desires/fears on to you, because you reflect back to them like clear water. They see a distorted version of themselves in you & this can be very challenging when it comes to dating & flirting. You will need partners who are grounded & level-headed, but also understand your need to be understood in non-traditional communicative ways. You have a gorgeously creative mind that sees the possibilities in the world, rather than the poverties. You are able to find beauty in the most broken of people, places & things, because you perhaps feel broken and forsaken by the world yourself. This is not an easy placement, but it has the most potential for true spiritual enlightenment! Dating may not be your strong suit, but connection to source sure is! You will find people who appreciate & celebrate the gifts that you have to offer, even if it gets lost in translation from time to time! You are an exquisite mermaid from beyond the sea!

Feelings about purely instrumental music? I got into it by way of listening to enough video game OSTs that lyrical music now feels like a genre I have to like, break into. Interesting because for most people alive today, music inherently includes lyrics and meaning derived from them.
I got into music in general through instrumental music, really. Two Steps from Hell, Audiomachine, and Really Slow Motion are still some of my most commonly listened to artists.
Those three belong to a niche category of artist that basically makes music for trailers. Like, movie trailers. You have almost certainly heard Audiomachine's music before, if you haven't been living under a rock. (No shade if you do, in fact, live under a rock. Sounds like an ideal way to live in this day and age.)
Two Steps from Hell became popular enough early on among regular people who just, enjoyed their songs, to switch over to primarily making music for regular human listeners, rather than movie trailers. They are truly an experience, and do things like introduce dubstep and electric guitar solos into what otherwise sounds like a "classical" orchestral track.
Other good artists that roughly fall within this category include Valentin Weist, BrunuhVille, Twisted Jukebox, Kari Sigurdsson, and City of the Fallen.
Shit i'm going to have to make a detailed list of recs huh.
Two Steps from Hell...okay. I'm going to focus on them because TSFH really was what introduced me to how powerful music could be to just wreck your shit body and soul. Their music is epic as in "gives you full-body chills and makes you feel like a god" transcendent.
Compared with most of the others, TSFH is a lot more varied both in tone and in just...the range of weird stuff that they do. Some of their songs are completely unique sounding and impossible to compare to anything else.
ok all right just bear with me
"epic" adventurous dragon riding with dual wielding laser swords: High C's, Clock Tower Parade, Never Give Up On Your Dreams, Flight of the Silverbird, Victory, Realm of Power, Impossible, Fall of the Fountain World, Skulls and Trombones, Norwegian Pirate, Color the Sky
Narrative/character sketch stuff: Blackheart, Caradhras, Dangerous* (*has lyrics!)
Tour de force through a Realm: Amaria/Welcome to Amaria (same song, released twice under diff names), Big Sky, Science, Starfall, Phantom
Dramatic Dark Tunes For Villainy: Chase the Light, Queen of Crows, The Raven Talks Backwards, Stormkeeper, Breath of Cold Air, 1000 Ships of the Underworld, Asimov
what the FUCK is this aka songs that transcend normal categorization more than usual: Casablanca, Future Fortress, Lost in Las Vegas, All is Hell that Ends Well, Replicate, Winterspell
Nothing prepares you for realizing that TSFH has hundreds of songs and somehow almost every single one of them is the best song you've ever heard and compels you to listen to it over and over again. It's madness.
There is no way to fully describe Two Steps from Hell. "Genre" is as dust sifting through frail mortal fingertips to them. You will listen to dark orchestral Viking EDM dubstep pirate metal with Latin choir and you will FUCKING LIKE IT.

The first song I remember hearing
Lily Allen 鈥 鈥楩uck You鈥
鈥淚 was a child when it came out in 2009. I was small 鈥 and I remember I wasn鈥檛 allowed to say the lyrics, i had to say 鈥榝鈥 you鈥. I first heard it when I was in the car with my family. We had just been to a聽Lily Allen聽concert in Switzerland where I got to meet her. I remember it well because I didn鈥檛 have to look so far up because she鈥檚 not that tall. It was great because I thought 鈥榝inally, someone I can talk to!'鈥
Tumblr media
The first song I fell in love with
Paolo Nutini 鈥 鈥楲ast Request鈥
鈥淚 remember listening to this with my dad. I really enjoyed his singing. He鈥檚 a big fan of many songs but that was one of the songs we listened to back in the day.鈥
The first album I bought
Eminem 鈥 鈥楾he Eminem Show鈥
鈥淚 got it because I wanted 鈥榃ithout Me鈥 as a ringtone and it came with the album. I only realised what he was saying a few years ago. Back then I just thought the song was funny. I didn鈥檛 really know the meaning behind it. As a young child I shouldn鈥檛 have had that as a ringtone!鈥
The best gig I鈥檝e been to
John Mayer at Oslo Spektrum Arena, Norway in 2019
鈥淚t was one or two years ago. I bought a regular ticket and was sitting in the crowd. No one recognised me! Maybe I need the helmet on鈥β燡ohn Mayer聽inspired me to learn to play the guitar. I suck but I鈥檓 getting better. I鈥檓 conscious that I still need my fingers while driving and I don鈥檛 want them to bleed so I鈥檓 taking it in steps.鈥
The song that I wish I鈥檇 written
Frank Ocean 鈥 鈥楥hanel鈥
鈥淭he lyrics are iconic. Hopefully I get to meet him someday. I tend to see the celebrities who visit the F1 paddock from afar. Last year,聽Megan Thee Stallion聽came to the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) race, so that was cool. She had huge bodyguards next to her so I didn鈥檛 say hi! I don鈥檛 listen to her music that much but I hear it about the place 鈥 most of the songs are TikTok trends!鈥
The song I do at karaoke
鈥淚鈥檓 not really a fan. I get a bit shy. But I remember when I was at home with my sister, who loves singing and has a beautiful voice, she sometimes got me to sing with her. I know [F1 driver] Daniel Ricciardo likes a good jam, though I wouldn鈥檛 say his singing鈥 well, it鈥檚 Daniel. We all know Lewis [Hamilton] sings, and I think he sings pretty well so it鈥檚 good to see him doing more. I think he did a song himself, right? [Hamilton features on聽Christina Aguilera鈥榮 2018 song 鈥楶ipe鈥 under the pseudonym XNDA and has recorded solo music as well].鈥
