Potter and Bimble

I can feel my physical energy starting to return and the joint inflammation is dissipating.  And I am pretty sure that reading the signs and stopping rather than pushing through has helped the process.  Participating in an online conference with several Mindfulness meditations most likely played a role too. So today I have been indulgingContinue reading “Potter and Bimble”

Boom and Busted

Mars and Mercury are buddying up to my natal Saturn this week and today I felt that quite keenly.  This kind of transit could be difficult, especially if I rebel against it (usual pattern) and especially when it comes to getting things done.  As it is I think I found the light in the shadow…althoughContinue reading “Boom and Busted”

Up and running

The beautiful sunny weather has left us for now but I managed to see it off from the stunning surroundings of Regent’s Park. Me and a few ducks, geese and the odd swan. I can definitely say for once that I’ve made the most of my outdoors time, replenishing that Vitamin D. And today IContinue reading “Up and running”

Wisdom from a distance

I’ve gotten used to a certain level of energy over the last month or so.  It seems that gallstones have their benefits.  Today, though, I was more tired than I’d like and as tomorrow is going to be a big day I convinced myself to rest.  More often that not this is not how myContinue reading “Wisdom from a distance”

Home help

Back to another precious space today. My home. Christmas festivities with our friends have come to an end and we have now returned to our sanctuary. I’ve never been someone you would call a homebody and have always been happy to spend time at other people’s homes, thanks to the Piscean go-with-the-flow, Aries enthusiasm andContinue reading “Home help”

Productive pause

Crikey I’ve made it to 50 posts in a row. My Aries ascendant has gone to lie down in shock and Moon in Virgo is cheering at me actually achieving some semblance of discipline. I may rest on my laurels for a moment or two mainly because I’m still rather weary from the social activityContinue reading “Productive pause”

Body beautiful

I visited my exercise therapist today. Yes it’s a thing and if you have M.E or other forms of unexplained fatigue you get to find out what one of these can do. It’s been a revelation. Something I initially resisted but have embraced. It sounded like it would be something akin to school gym. JumpingContinue reading “Body beautiful”

A date with Venus

I am overflowing with the excitement of possibilities today. Full on babbling brook. A quick look at my chart and I can see a key couple of planets are actively encouraging my outpouring. Transit Venus is almost exactly conjunct my natal Mars, my chart ruler, and their creative collaboration is well and truly stoking theContinue reading “A date with Venus”

Still learning

Looks like I needn’t have worried about temptation today. My body had other plans. Be still day. This used to be what I would call one of my M.E “bad” days. I wake up feeling like I’ve had no sleep or rather reverse sleep. That is, every minute asleep has drained me further. Sometimes aContinue reading “Still learning”

M.E. mine

I am pretty tired today. Tiredness alarms me. I’d rather it didn’t but this is one of the life lessons where i’m probably getting a C minus. I’ve not written about this part of my life yet. Mainly because I don’t really want to give it such prominence but there it is, slap bang inContinue reading “M.E. mine”
