I often talk about the blessing of having a selfish mom. Or rather, mum, as we refer to female parents here in Australia. This goes against conventional wisdom of course. Most peeps think a selfish mom is a bad mom. Women are under enormous pressure to put everyone else’s needs before their own. From their children. Their husbands. The parents at the school gate. The media. Their own expectations of what’s right.
For the past few weeks I’ve been obsessed, OBSESSED, with googling recipes for this crazy new diet I’m on. You could say that I like eating. In my younger days I planned to have written on my tombstone: It was all about the food! I never just want to be healthy, I want to enjoy the road I travel to get there.
If ever there was a patron saint of cooking I figure it would have to be good ol’ Temperance. Look at him mixing things together there in the card. He is the master of fancy cuisine, cocktails and other concoctions. Helps you find a healthy balance. And encourages general well-being. Bless him.
My weekly email from Biddy Tarot has inspired me to look at the angels in Tarot. They are found on Life Lessons (aka Major Arcana) cards which are the most significant ones in the Tarot deck. Each is an archangel i.e. they are serious players in the angelic world, what they have to say is important. So if they turn up in a reading, pay attention!
