I have been thinking about bucket lists an awful lot lately. I don’t know whether that is because of the whole age thing (I still have problems saying the 4 prefix before my age & I am 3 years into it!) or whether it is because I am just in a hurry. One thing that has been on my bucket list since I was a young girl is to do one of those 5 day horse treks through somewhere like the Snowy Mountains. But given that my idea of camping is a 3 star hotel with average plumbing, I want to do one of those posh ones where you either stay in lodges with fires and baths and wine or those luxury campsites with fires and baths and wine.
Today I did a 2 hour trail ride through a beautiful valley in Sydney and seriously my knees and ankles are totally shot…and lets not even talk about the bum- and I have plenty of padding in that region! My husband (who didn’t ride!) helpfully suggested that perhaps I was too old and decrepid to be hanging onto that particular fantasy. Talk about getting the death stare!
I have Mars in Scorpio, so can stubbornly hang on to things when I want to…and the items in my bucket list are something that I guard pretty closely. I have this theory that once something comes out of the bucket list and onto the table, it can’t go in again…which is one of the reasons that I guard mine!
Speaking of hanging onto stuff, the Moon moves into Taurus around midnight tonight (Sydney time). Within a couple of hours the Moon will trine Pluto providing stimulation to your senses and an intensity to your emotions. By early afternoon the Moon will have aligned with the Sun in fellow Earth sign, Virgo. A good day to feel good. The Taurus Moon is always good for feel good activities…and taste good activities…and retail therapy- but seriously just how many bottles of black nail polish does one girl need?
If you have the time, the money & the inclination, book a massage. If you have to go into the office, enjoy the vitality of the interaction. If like me, you feel like you have spent the last year in the saddle (yep, I am exaggerating for dramatic effect) and know that you will still get dragged off to the gym, step away from the chocolate and try and accept it with good grace- just stay away from the cycle.
