When approaching a deadline for a project or a commission I am an Aries to the inth degree. I find every reason to put my head against the deadline and push as hard as I can to make it move further away....to no avail, I should add.
I start way too many "new" projects and let the old ones hang around and haunt me, taunt and insult me.
I love every bit of what I do and yet find every excuse in the book and obstacle to place in my path. Other arty friends are at it all the time. Head down, producing and finishing and I am thinking, yeah that's what I should do, but well I'm like the dog Doug in the movie UP......"squirrel" says I and run in another direction.
Now that's not to say I'm not working on crafty things.....with the grandkids.....and teaching others techniques and cleaning up the ensuing messes but really getting down to what I do....well let's just say, it's been awhile. Portrait & Pet photography, silk painting and pottery all have escaped my grasp. But they have been replaced for lack of a better term by Altered mixed media play. Fantasy sculptures. Paper art.
I asked my colleagues (sp) here at PAN if I could take the 9th of every month as my time to post. The reason is because 9 is my lucky life number. Here are some of the career choices that might suit you particularly well if the number 9 is predominant in your chart:
Designer, photographer, politician, lawyer, teacher, healer, statesperson, writer, philosopher, artist.
And more importantly posting on the 9th of every month....I wouldn't forget or put off or excuse or muse on this date. Baby steps people, baby steps. How about you? Is life your muse or your excuse?
