celestial
I picture a lovely blue-domed night sky bright with gold starlight - I had a necklace from Sweden when I was a kid, no idea where it came from, a blue enamel sphere with the three gold fleur-de-lis - that's what I see when I think of celestial. It also reminds me of the song from Cinderella - "One minute ago, I saw you/I looked up as you came through the door/My head started reeling/It gave me the feeling/The room had no ceiling or floor." Can't you just see the heavens shining?
