Virgo Fancy, Part II

Posted Thu, 12/09/10

Sometimes the Virgo horoscope is spot-on:

You will float today, Virgo. You won't talk, you will be sleepy, and your mood won't be the best. OK, perfect! Get back into your novel, take several siestas, and do as little as possible, because that's what you want to do. Don't worry, busy beaver, this period will pass. And you know what? You aren't alone here. It happens to everyone from time to time. Flow with it.

It's odd how astrological predictions can often be totally inaccurate, while other times they are right on the money.

I am sleepy today, or rather physically exhausted from lack of shut-eye and unrelenting focus on my work. When I'm tired, I tell myself: "If you take a break or a cat nap, that's time that could be spent editing, writing new material or submitting manuscripts." So I never stop, pushing myself forward no matter how I feel.

It's not the healthiest way to live, but right now it's what I need to do. It's like a driving force that keeps me awake at night, and propels me through each and every day. I'm not sure when it will run itself out, so I need to take advantage of every waking moment.
