Something about building castles in the sky…

Today I don’t feel like doing anything.

It’s been a serious cow of a week- although yesterday was ok- and I’ve just filed the last of the deadlines I had on my plate. By the way, if you’re interested, I just had a sneaky peek at a few months in 2015, and it’s looking pretty good to me!

So, I don’t feel like doing anything.

I have an appointment at 7.30 (yes, on a Saturday morning) to get my hair done (which translates to grey removal- yes, I’m vain) but other than that I’m planning on a date with my fiction manuscript, and an afternoon pottering around preparing something Thai in style and fabulous in flavour.

Although, I could just be deluding myself. Today, you see, Venus and Neptune are exchanging sweet nothings in each others shell like ears.

Across the divide, the Moon is making suggestions that perhaps doing nothing or wasting one’s time faffing about with characters from a romance novel really isn’t either an appropriate or productive use of a Saturday- after all the bathrooms need cleaning, there’s dust on all the surfaces and at least three loads of washing to be done. Plus, I haven’t been to the gym in nearly a week.

But I’m putting my fingers in my ears and doing the lalalalalala thing. So there.

Venus and Neptune bring together the illusion, the fantasy of sweetness and light. Almost as if someone has sprinkled things with a light dusting of rainbow beams. You know it’s not real, you know it can’t be real, but in the middle of so much that is real, it’s oh so tempting to believe that it is. Besides, if you don’t lift the covers, or take off the rose coloured glasses, you can put off seeing the slightly manky reality for just a tad longer.

So today, if you want to make big dreams, do so. If you want to believe in fairytales, do so. After all, as the pic below says, you don’t need planning permission to build castles in the sky. After all, it’s just for a day.

Then again, if you want to listen to the call of duty, go right ahead. This energy will help you lean into the work rather than against it.
