During the last twelve months I have been busy with my general work of consultations, course prep, teaching, mentoring, speaking and presiding over my local astrology group and all that that entailed.
As well as the day to day ebb and flow of life I have myself been studying and taking advanced courses on several topics and alongside all of this I have been nurturing my latest baby, no not a real baby, but a creative endeavor – a book manuscript.
It is only in the past few years that I have considered myself a writer. During a productive Jupiter transit of my ninth house, when I first received acknowledgement for an article I had published, I began to see the light with the written word and it has grown to brighten my day.
I now have a little shelf space for grammar, writing, editing and publishing books which have found a place in my home. This is unusual as I now have precious astrology books piled on the floor which is something I would never have done before. Horrors.
But we change and evolve.
My book is about The Oriental Planet and has that title. The name says it all. It explores insights and perceptions on my original research and observations over many years.
You don’t know what goes into a book until you yourself are writing yours. Time and time management is the thing. I’m getting near the end now. Ha, I’ve been saying that all this year. But I really am into the home straight and can see the winning post in the distance.
I have pencilled in March 21st as the final date to get it off to the publisher. Even I noticed I didn’t mention the year. But I mean 2014. For sure. Definitely.
When this mammoth task comes to its conclusion it will be a dream come true for me. My father was writing a personal memoir way back in the seventies. I vaguely remember him tapping page after page on an old typewriter working into the wee hours. He was a hunt and peck typist. I wish I had paid more attention as he had skills I am now scrambling to learn on a sharp curve.
If you are familiar with this chart feature and would like to share your experiences with me I would love to hear your oriental planet story. I invite you to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will read every message.
