Daily Schedule Derailed by Astrological Shift

Kidush

If I was still a Virgo I'm sure that I'd have been able to keep to my new daily schedule and I'd have four or five new paintings by now. I'd get through each day in my usual focused fashion and move from slot to slot like the obsessive pedantic creature that I thought I was. But it turns out I am a LEO. A LEO,  people? For the love of ginger! This makes no sense. It's a whole new world order. No wonder I have been so self absorbed lately. And luxuriating in my bed despite the repeated reminders by my 6am alarm. I'm a lion! I don't have time for schedules. I'm too busy ruling the jungle.

Nonetheless, I did manage to finally get started on a suite of paintings that celebrate the sabbath. Which reminds me. Time for a cat nap.

Did your zodiac sign change? I'm not sure what to make of it. Except that maybe it's time to ditch moody, organized and judgmental in favor of enterprising, courageous and confident. Plus affectionate. Prrrrrr.....

Mine changed and I don't buy it one bit. I am a Libra through and through. I thought it was just one guy's theory. Was it actually accepted as the "New Astrological Calendar"? or is it still just an idea being toyed with? If it's changed, then it would only make sense that the sign's descriptions change as well. Can you tell I don't like change or imbalance? Like I said, Libra through and through.

OMG - you are too funny. I heard I might be a Virgo now, but I'm sticking with Libra, no matter what the star people say.

Yup apparently i'm now a capricorn instead of an aquarian- which sucks for the aquarian symbol tattooed on my lower back! I don't buy it either. I am so not a capricorn, pfft!

I'm like you - according to this, I am now a Leo instead of a Virgo. I don't know - I don't know at all. Although I hate schedules - I still think I am a Virgo and I will wear it proudly for the rest of my days. Psssshaw!

Well I'll be! I have been a Leo for 54 years and now I am supposed to change to Cancer! My world has just been turned upside down. I guess before I go ballistic, I should see what being Cancer is all about (but being a leo was so great...)

i can't even focus on the words you are speaking...something about zodiacing...?...
because i am smitten & swooning over candles & trees & magical buildings & heavenly colors sweeping through the middle of your papers & right through the center of my heart who looooves what you create! eeeeeeeeeeee!

An excellent way to look at the change - an excuse to become a better you!

I love this colorful tree.

Wow, I'm a Gemini now, go figure. Doesn't make much sense considering I'm a Cancer through and through. I'm totally captivated by your painting of the tree with the houses behind, stunning and evocative!

Bella Sinclair said...

RAWR!

Oh wow, these are GREAT! (Isn't that what Tony the Tiger says? Oh, wait. We're talking lions here, not tigers. Liger, anyone?) I really love the tall buildings peeking behind the tree. So wonderful!

I don't buy the zodiac change. Actually, I read another article that said this shift is nothing new, and it pops up in the media every once in a while. If you follow the Tropical astrological signs, which most people do, your signs remain the same. Whew!

So hey! HEY! Oh my goodness, I'm obviously late to the party. WOOOHOOOOO! You are preggers! WOW! Oh, I'm so excited for you! Yes, yes, yes, go take a catnap! You have every reason to!

Yayyyyyyy!

God, you're funny- I've missed you! That last painting is AWESOME.

Well, I hope you are felling better regarding the astrological change.. I really need my fix of Inner Toddler!

Holy canoli! Ever since I first read about the "astrological shift", I've been all weirdy about it, and then oddly relieved when I read about the whole "tropical vs sidereal zodiac" caveat to the whole thing.

Then today a share from Goddess Leonie's weekly inspirations on Goddess Guidebook brought me to this post.

Now? Now I'm thinking... maybe shifting from a Virgo to a Leo wouldn't be such a bad thing. Maybe, just maybe, it's exactly what I need to jump start the next stage of life. Hmm...

AG Ambroult said...

Nope. Mine didn't change. I'm a Gemini come hell or high water. I think Leo suits you. You're kind of Ike a mama grizzly now ;)

And i *like* what you're doing with the tree painting. So much movement.

jane said...

haha. you are hysterical. mine hasn´t changed... i really needed some kind of an excuse;)

Scorpio relegated to 7 days? I realized we can be abrasive, but really?
