Sagittarius

Whether or not you believe in the traits of the Zodiac, sometimes the descriptions are far too apt and entertaining. I’ve been a big fan of the Zodiac for as long as I’ve known about it. Be it the Western Zodiac, Chinese Zodiac, Native American Zodiac, or any other cultural Astrology belief, I think there’s some wisdom to be taken from all of them.

From a Zodiac page on Avia Venefica’s awesome symbology website, What’s Your Sign, we have this little description of the Sagittarius:

Sagittarius – The Centaur
November 22 – December 21
Here we have the philosopher among the zodiac signs and meanings. Like the Scorpio, they have great ability for focus, and can be very intense. However, they must channel their energy or they will waste time and wear themselves out going in too many directions at once. They are not very patient and expect quick results. However, when encountered with failure they make extreme comebacks often against incredible odds. They make loyal friends and lovers, but they do not handle commitment well as they refuse to be tied down while chasing philosophical pursuits.

Yeah. See the third and fourth sentences? I’ve been having a very Sagittarius week, doing everything at once, being impatient at the lack of results, and generally wasting a lot of time.

Now, that’s not too much of a bad thing. I’m also optimistic to a fault, and yes, I will bounce back from this week with more coffee-fuelled enthusiasm! I’m tempted to say, “I haven’t gotten anything done!”, but the reality is, I’ve gotten a lot of pieces of things done. Extra jewellery was produced for The Dragon’s Hoard, as well as writing out all the price tags I just received in the mail. I’ve been asked to participate as a sponsor for charity, and have to organise even more jewellery-related work for that. About four blog posts are half-written and saved for later.

I wrote, definitely, but I also edited as I went (bad mistake), and ended up cutting about 50% of the work, hence my progress bar hasn’t been touched for several days.

I’ve taken care of the cats, and the fish, and a whole lot of housework. I’ve done gardening, and grocery shopping, and maintained contact with my social groups. I cooked many delicious things, most of which I promptly ate. I’ve currently got two major crocheting projects half-finished that I can barely bring myself to look at, because I know how much longer it will take me to finish them, and don’t you know, I have other things to do!

Yeah… It’s about time to rein in the wild, galloping centaur at the core of my multi-project enthusiasm so I can just get things done. It’s hard coming to terms with priorities. Sometimes, for me, it seems like an insurmountable task.

  1. how is the status of voice recognition software these days??, just a thought, u could b dictating ur novels to the computer while crocheting ur heart out, of course pausing for the occasional nom out..

    1. Some of it gets very good, you just need to “train” the software to recognise your pronunciation. I have looked into it before, and mostly just felt really weird about speaking draftwork aloud. 😉

  2. During my decades of researching the roots and origins of symbols, I learned that Astrology, as it pertains to the functions of humans, is a very old concept. Its beginnings can be seen during the ice age, ca 12,500 BC when it was noticed that babies born at certain times of the year were healthier and more productive during thier lives. The stars were an everpresent tapestry on which knowledge and tradition were preserved in stories. Some of this is covered in my book Symbology: Decoding Classic Images. Like you, I know I am more productive some days than others. I always wonder why. Take heart, we all ride around the sun on this rock called Earth, some positions are better than others.

    1. Thanks for your input, Michelle! Sometimes we forget that the whole Universe spinning around us has a very real and direct effect on our day-to-day lives. It’s somewhat reassuring to acknowledge that those outside influences are there, and we can work with those feelings rather than fight them.
