Trying to make sense of myself and how others perceive me, I took a Myers-Briggs personality test. My personality indicator came out as ISFJ which is introversion, sensing, feeling, judging. I think the test accurately describes me.
I have recently found out that I was born under a balsamic moon and that cancer was in my mid heaven at the time of my birth.
In western astrology I have: sun in Aries, rising sign Libra, Moon in Pisces
In vedic (jyotish) astrology: sun in Pisces, rising sign Virgo, Moon in Aquarius
I don't know if it is helpful (as yet) to collate all this (useless?) information about myself. I do know that I want grounding though and if putting myself in various labelled boxes helps me to do this it will all be worthwhile.

California Poppy should certainly wake you up and lift your spirits! It was a lovely surprise to see the seeds germinate and rise up from the soil again this year and they are bigger and bushier than ever before.
I can almost feel the Californian sunshine emanating from its petals! I hope this burst of colour will send positive vibes your way and set you off on a great week ahead.

Because I don't have a paid job I have felt guilty having so many creative hobbies. I thought that if I could combine doing what I love with receiving an income then I couldn't be accused of time wasting. From now on I am going to create for me even though it may be perceived as being selfish. If I could get any income from doing the things I love it will be the icing on the cake, but I am not going to live a life of regret not doing what makes me happy even if it doesn't bring home a wage.
These last few weeks I have felt lighter and happier (despite being back on the sugar again)! I play with paint, I stick things down, cut things out, collage and doodle 'til my heart's content. By concentrating on my own happiness I believe that it is having a positive influence on those closest to me. I may even get back to baking cakes again.............!!!

As well as the blog I constantly check my twitter and g mail accounts. I really need to break out of this habit as it is having a destructive effect on me and taking away precious time that I could be doing something constructive.
I really need to cut down on time spent at the computer and with this in mind I am going to step away from the blog. Not for long. Hopefully. Just a breather.

Surrendering to trying to find out a career via those two conflicting systems I looked to the midheaven point at which I was born. If I have my information correct, it seems that cancer is my midheaven point. This stays the same whether I follow the vedic or western system. For now I will let this new information be my guiding light.
Talking of looking to the past, I recently bought a collection of original 'Henry' cigarette cards from the 1930's. I have no idea what I am going to do with them yet but I liked their humour and the colours used. They are in great condition considering they were created around 80 years ago!
