Cooked Nerves
 
This is the piece of digital art that I created to accompany my Icon Alchemy astrology blog post for April 28th, 2017.  

The title suggested itself as the colours and brightness of the image increased, in keeping with the mentally and physically fried feeling of this day and the corresponding Mercury/Uranus conjunction.  Since transiting Uranus has been loosely squared to my natal Sun and is currently opposing my natal Pluto that plugs into aspects and configurations that influence the majority of my chart, I've been feeling any aspect to Uranus like a live wire in my body and brain.  Even more so since I've been going through some major health challenges lately that have me unable to sleep for more than an hour or two without waking (sometimes even less).  This was a rough day to get through and still be able to produce both writing and art, so right now I feel like I've made it up a mountain, but am uncertain if I'll have the strength to make it back down.  :/  Hopefully some time out in the garden will help sooth the fried (and refried) nerves...
