The last days’ ‘crisis in action’ tested our tolerance level, because we were challenged to keep goingand our ‘business’ running amidst the ‘shopping craze’ we witnessed on this Black Friday weekend. We also had to deal with more than the usual amount of ignorance and mindlessness – whether this meant we encountered single-mindedness or simple-mindedness – or might even have displayed it ourselves. In the same sense as it takes a lot of work and manpower to put the stores back together, so to speak, had the households to provide more meals, hospitality and entertainment, while undertaking a big clean-up effort after the Thanksgiving Dinner. Therefore, it was important to remember our higher values and to play along. We wanted to be a good sport and keep our good relations intact, even though the competitive spirit was at its highest level for many folks. Alas, we might have seen and experienced things that made us wonder about the human race, consumerism and where we are headed as a society. In any case, yesterday we had to deal with the results of the event or occasion and could have felt uplifted and proud about our success, gains or sales. For our store, it was also our first anniversary since opening one year ago – a big milestone. We’ve come a far way indeed and have still way to go. A friend of mine was so nice to help me to get my new TV I purchased at this sales event home (too big and heavy to carry with me on the bus) for which I was very grateful. The North Node’s transit through Libra brings many opportunities for us to recognize our interdependence and co-existence and how to make the best of it. After my shift I took the next bus to the mall to get some special Christmas decorations. However, I couldn’t find anything that matched my vision. So, this was rather a waste of my time and I returned home so late that I couldn’t do anything else anymore.
Accordingly, Tarot card of the day was the “4 of Swords”, which signified a break from normal life and a time when we seek to come to terms with what is. For the moment, there is a truce, which gives us a chance to stabilize ourselves, recover, center our thoughts, stop worrying, put down our defenses and take a breather from the chaos and stress around us. In a practical sense, this card is an indicator that we need to have some time out from our current circumstances, to reflect and review your progress so far to be able to re-evaluate and re-assess our priorities. There is light at the end of the tunnel and inevitable changes to come, which we need to use as a foundation stone for future plans. The shadow over our life is slowly moving away, but it will take some time.
Today now, as Mercury is waxing into a square to Neptune, we have to focus on our unfinished business or delayed plans and find ways to realize them, even if the conditions are not perfect. In this regard is it also essential to not get distracted or let our mind wander off or to be deterred by disillusionment. We may have to look at things with an open mind and get newly inspired to be able to feel enthusiastic about our endeavors and get over with them already, instead of complaining and sulking. Later in the evening will we feel reanimated and ready for more action.
Tarot card of the day is the “8 of Swords”, suggesting that we need to look at a difficult situation from a new angle and with a different perspective. Because our thinking is limited and we’re struggling to see a way out of our dilemma, it is imperative that we open our eyes to the options that lay in front of us. There are choices available, but in order to recognize them, we have to get into the right mindset first.
