Hi, I'm Nikki
I've had a problem with the "Mood" option in profile settings. The words don't make sense to anybody who was born between 2006 and 2019. So I've tracked down the definitions to each mood as of January 3, 2019 (beats me why Hull is out there scouring the internet for obscure words)
Source used is the Merriam-Webster dictionary website, and using Google when words don't turn up results.
Acephalous - no longer having a head.
Beliggerent - hostile and aggressive.
Cavernicolous - inhabiting caves.
Daedal - ingenious and complex in design or function; intricate
Enamoured - be filled with a feeling of love for.

Idiomorphic - having the proper form or shape - used of minerals whose crystalline growth has not been interfered with
Janiform - having a face on each of two sides
Kerygmatic - the apostolic proclamation of salvation through Jesus Christ
Labile - readily or continually undergoing chemical, physical, or biological change or breakdown
Macaronic - characterized by a mixture of vernacular words with Latin words or with non-Latin words having Latin endings
Necrogenic - causing necrosis
Oligophagous - eating only a few specific kinds of food
Psittacistic is not a word.
Quixotic - foolishly impractical especially in the pursuit of ideals
Rapacious - excessively grasping or covetous
Sedulous - involving or accomplished with careful perseverance
Tautologic is not a word.

Great job with the list!
These moods were a long-running joke in the community. I specifically chose the most obscure words I could find to get members hunting for the definitions and having fun learning. I only know probably half of the meanings after all these years, but I kept notes.
Some of your definitions are literal, but the words may have deeper connotations to them. Here are some examples:
“Acephalous” is a reference to someone or something without a leader (i.e. a figurative head). That means there’s a state of anarchy or chaos.
“Janiform” refers to someone who is duplicitous or backstabbing, since that person is “two-faced”.
“Labile” can refer to emotional instability, as well.
“Necrogenic” can be like a phoenix that rises from its own ashes. In biology, something that grows on dead matter applies, as well. This word doesn’t really have a deeper connotation, but it seemed an interesting allegory for rebirth or a resurrection.
“Psittacistic” means that one mindlessly repeats what he/she hears, like a parrot (which is a psittacine bird). This is a reference to people who mindless believe everything they hear, rather than searching for why something is the way that it is.
“Tautologic” refers to circular or redundant reasoning, meaning that a discussion with such a person doesn’t accomplish anything.
“Ultracrepidarian” refers to someone who thinks he/she is an expert in a certain area where that person is not - yet he/she volunteers opinions on that topic.
“Vegatal” figuratively refers to someone who just sits around doing nothing all the time.

I was just searching for the original website where I got the word list. It looks like they’ve been replaced with some sort of domain squatter for hotels. The website’s name was “luciferous logolepsy”. If you search that term, several similar websites come up with fun, obscure words.
