This could be disconcerting if you're typically cerebral, because thoughts won't connect in the way that you're used to. Those of you who are more comfortable with dreams and imagination will find that this is a time when you can easily access your creative genius. You'll be so prolific that this could be one of your most productive periods ever. Meanwhile, take it easy with the recreationals. You're trippy enough as is.
