Thanks for all the feedback via comments and email for the pattern layout. I have pretty much worked out how I'm gonna tackle the problem, and will explain all. The ol' noggin hasn't been coping well this last week, keeps short-circuiting at the slightest complication.... more I think due to the pressure and expectation I've built up in my mind rather than anything being beyond my control.

Anyhow, in search of some light entertainment and self-affirmation this morning, I found this website. I block quote the following extract that describes Aquarians, my sun sign.

"One of the standout characteristics of those born under the Sun Sign of Aquarius is their unwillingness to follow the beaten track. With advancement and progress on their minds, there can be an irreverence to old and outdated ways of thinking and doing things.

Many Aquarians aim to free themselves of personal and social conditioning. Although open to change in theory, Aquarians can be surprisingly stubborn. Their idealism runs strong, but they can be very fixed in their opinions.

Often a bit aloof and even standoffish, Aquarians nonetheless are usually well-liked. They are curious and observant, and tolerant in a broad sense. Prejudice and bias is offensive to the typical Aquarius.

Aquarians are generally very clever, witty, and intellectual. They value progress and frankness. It's difficult to throw Aquarians for a loop—they're generally on top of things.

There is a bit of reformer in Aquarius. They'll try to get you to see through superficiality, and encourage you to be open and forthright. "Be true to yourself" and "Don't follow the crowd" are mottos we easily associate with this sign.

Aquarians need space and value personal freedom. Any attempt to box them in will likely fail. They'll happily return the favor; and they will treat people from all walks of life as equals. Equality and fairness are hallmarks of the sign. If you're quirky and "different", all the better."

Challenging the 'status quo'? Doesn't sound like me at all. (cough)

I know, I know. I just needed to be reminded that what I'm doing and how I'm going about it all is a good thing. After all, I can only be myself.

It has also been written (somewhere) that the most common astrology sign to be found on any psychiatric ward is, erm, Aquarius.
