Because it's not just Jupiter that fucks my shit up. To give you some context, Pisces, which is ruled by Neptune, was originally ruled by Jupiter. And, in some ways, Neptune and Jupiter are one in the same. While Jupiter makes you so focused on the big picture you miss the details, Neptune gives you rose colored glasses so you end up missing everything. Which isn't necessarily all bad. That rose-colored fog is associated with creativity. Every artist, writer, and musician have Neptune to thank. Of course, every member of the 27 club probably has a poorly aspected Neptune to thank for their membership.
But, anyway. Putting your Neptune to work when you write is the easy part, getting it to back off so you can do all the other parts that come with publishing a book is quite another. As it is, I had to step away while writing this and instead of getting back to work like Saturn would, I dicked around for an hour. Because that's what Neptune does.
So, how to work against it? I've found the Pomodoro Technique to be effective on days where I actually want to get things done. On days when I don't want to do anything? I try anyway. I know it's trite and I know it can suck, but working past whatever it is that's preventing you from doing what you want to do (and I should emphasize what YOU want to do, not what anyone else wants you to do) is better for you emotionally than not. Trust me, I speak from experience.
Once again, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
