Poll: Neptune direct — sleep, and perchance to dream?

I don’t often take naps. When I do, it feels like a luxury. And I definitely felt like one today after a very long few months, and took it. A cue from Neptune direct (see also) perhaps, to give the psyche a break, a rest, and a chance to recuperate. Dreams were strange too.

Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleave of care
The death of each day’s life, sore labour’s bath
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.
— William Shakespeare, Macbeth II.ii

A little Neptunian poetry and a poll on Neptune direct and napping.

    There is a great deal to be said for taking naps as any cat can tell you! [love the photo]

    Naps are very good for us in many ways though are no substitute for a good night’s sleep. They do give our minds a time out and lower blood pressure. I take them whenever I can as does my husband. He’s better at the 20 minute power nap than me.

    My dreams have been vivid lately even if they dissipate upon waking . . .

    Same here with the dreams.

    About power naps — I have been contemplating taking a mat into the office… 🙂

    I love naps. I love sleep. I love having crazy dreams where people from my past come in and then I wake up craving some insane food like salami or mint ice cream.

    I’m also glad you’re back, lady- I’ve been having some Hitch withdrawal.

    Hey Lucy, glad to be back and wishing I could blog from bed! Feeling a massive ‘energy leak’ (to quote April Elliot Kent here: http://bigskyastrology.com/bloggish/2009/11/04/neptune-turning-direct-the-fog/).

    ::sigh:: Hitch is posting again and I see a comment from Lucy. All is well with my world 🙂

    P.S. I’ve been having some powerful dreams as well.
