There's one particular astrologer whose monthly forecasts I read. She gives these really long, comprehensive insights with each horoscope and sometimes they're so delightfully vague in over the length that she does indeed cater for pretty much anything happening to anyone in some veiled comment or another. I tend to read them when I'm having a bit of a navel-gazing time in my life. Introspective and uncertainty always drives me to look for someone else to give me the answer.
My other foible is that I tend to read them towards the end of the month so I can say 'Oh so that's why xyz happened' rather than at the start of the month when she'll say something that I interpret to mean I'm going to win the lottery when in fact at the end of the month, I actually just found a forgotten tenner stuffed in the pocket of my winter coat or something similar (this month I did win £3.10 on the Euromillions though).
|Not quite Pimms jelly|
One other thing she mentioned was the current Venus retrograde which would put a kibosh on some of my creative plans. And yes, life has now tampered with my blog plans for today and tomorrow. So instead of a nice Pimms jelly, planned in advance of the jubilee celebrations and with the hot weather we had been having in mind, I've now had to bring you a pretty pleasant summer pasta dish from the BBC Good Food website at the last minute. Fresh, storecupboard stuff. Quick and easy for a last minute dish after a long day at work. And healthy too.
I also blame the Venus retrograde for compromising my plans to make my jubilee bundt tomorrow. An action-packed day of work followed by a Jubilee party at Miss A's nursery (I'd intended to make cake for that too but the week has just vanished) and a trip to the doggie doctors in the evening has left me severely short on time and inspiration. Now wondering what the June horrorscope will hold but of course, I can't look for another thirty days.
