I have an adult child who requires support for health reasons. Today that support involved taking her to a wine tasting, which was a four hour return trip. I grumbled and groaned about this in my head. I’d much rather stay in bed and wander around the Internet. Maybe write a post or two on this blog. Something I’ve been too tired to do for a few weeks. But duty/love called.
Before I left home I read the daily email I get from Mystic Medusa, my favourite astrologer. She advised that today was a good time to switch ‘I have to do something’ thoughts to ‘I get to do something’. And it worked. I get to write this post sitting in a restaurant with a beautiful view over vines. They even have a dish I can eat (very hard to find these days now that I’m managing an auto-immune condition).
What would be the Tarot of this situation?
I have to…
Ten of Wands: Feeling burdened by obligations
I get to…
Four of Wands: Rejoicing over a happy event
Ace of Swords: Transforming the way you think
And the bonus is, I also get to enjoy a positive experience with my daughter rather than one centred around her health (even if she refused to allow me to sit with her and her friend once we got to the winery, lol.)
Do you have any mental tricks to help get you through the day?
