horoscope time..

Monday, September 21, 2009 at 2:15 PM
I haven't been writing since I've been busy packing (or at least attempting to while life gets in the way...)
But, I have been up on my horoscope and other such things, though.
I got a really cool card draw the other day and I've learned my birth chart based on time and place of birth. I've checked all kinds of things -- Chinese Zodiac, the moon affecting our moods, Celtic Zodiac, and then my regular one, which is Taurus.

Which, according to this quiz, I definitely am!

~~~ You're full of bull.

Organized... Hard-working... Comforting... Patient... Easygoing... Does this sound like you? Based on your answers, you are close to the mold of a Taurus. Although you sometimes go off the beaten path, for the most part, you possess many of the true traits of a Taurus. Tauruses are a certain type of person -- practical, conservative, dependable, honest, hard-working and harmonious. They rarely anger, but when they do, watch out; it's explosive. And don't try and keep them closed in -- Tauruses love the outdoors and nature. They love the good things in life, especially those that are pleasing to the eye. They're prone to overdoing it when it comes to food and alcohol. Famous Tauruses include Jessica Alba, Cher, Carmen Electra, Jerry Seinfeld, Jack Nicholson and Uma Thurman.

How you scored against others

2.97% 'You give Taurus a bad name.'
75.13% 'You're full of bull.'
21.91% 'You're a true Taurus' ~~~

I've learned what my year will be like because I'm a goat/sheep::

This may not be the favorable year you desire. Coming off the year of the Rat, you may be seeking relief from a difficult year. Don't let up now. The Sheep is artistic in nature, but you may have difficulties finding a way to express your creative passions.

It will take an extra effort to rely on the help of others to make it through these times, but if you keep a steady focus on your goals and display painstaking efforts, you will be pleased to see the fruits of your labor arrive in 2010. Don't fret. You may learn a lot about yourself in the process. You are more versatile, as well as resourceful, than you ever imagined.

And this is what the rest of September has in store for me::

Your strengths now: your calm and steady nature in a crisis; your instinct for what's enduring; your strong constitution.
Your vulnerabilities now: your tendency to resist change; stubborn thinking.

Mercury is in retrograde in Libra, and this shows you new approaches, especially with projects that are based on the principles of harmony. Mercury aligns with Saturn on the 22nd, so your thinking is concise allowing you to integrate new styles. But there's a constant tension to bust out of tried and true forms, with Uranus in opposition. You can feel liberated to follow the free reign of the imagination.

But the Virgo emphasis keeps bringing you back to the power of artful order. Bottom line: you are ready to go beyond your own creative boundaries, while staying grounded in good habits of discipline. It's the best of both worlds, and you're uniquely positioned to make the most of this cosmic stretch and grow by leaps and bounds!

--Everything that was predicted before tomorrow has come to pass pretty much like was said...and this is looking back after the fact.

I'm finding it interesting that I know deep down that I'm up for a big change in my life and everything I'm reading is telling me the same thing. Heck, even the psychic I saw in May (which I don't know if I believe in all that--nor if I even believe in what all is in this post, for that matter..) was dead-on about some things that there's no way she could have known. I didn't even know...

So here's the last part of all this. My one-card draw..
I asked for a card, giving a vague(ish) background, and this is what I received::

For you, Death-- the path you're walking isn't easy, but yes, it is the right one. The path of rebirth is never easy, but it is very, very worth it. Go foward, be renewed and reborn, and find your new self.

So, I guess I have a lot ahead of me -- including finishing my book so I can start sending out queries next month. Gulp!!

Anyway, that's my life at the moment... We'll see what's in store come next year. I have a feeling all will be different!!!!

i've actually been doing this!!!

I told myself that during the month of September, I was truly going to work on my WiP every day. I've said this before, but it's never happened. Well, not in a while, at least....
But I've been doing well and my motivation is off the charts so I'm excited to see what I have at the end of the month! This isn't just a monthly challenge, though. This is for all the time!! All year long! I feel confident enough to display this badge on my page! =)

I love smiley days! And I love this week, in particular. I'm lonely and have no company, but at the same time, I'm completely alone and can spend my time writing a ton over the next couple of days!!! We'll see what I come up with...
