I’m trying to unclog a kitchen sink as I write this. Jury is still out on whether there will be a plumber in my future or not. We’ll see!
Maybe this will sound dumb to you. But it’s true: the way I’ve felt about this situation is like a less-intense version of this week’s forecast.
Next Week in Tarot
Here we have (a slight blurry) Two of Pentacles (aka Rainbows/Moment to Moment) for the outlook and Nine of Swords (Clouds/Sorrow) for advice from the Osho Zen Tarot deck.
The outlook isn’t hard to read. Lots going on this week, so just don’t let it overwhelm you. Take it step by step, moment by moment and stay in the present to manage it all.
But for advice, sorrow? It’s an Osho deck, so I looked to see what Osho has to say here.
The arrow is hurting: it can be used. The pain is not to make you miserable, the pain is to make you more aware! And when you are aware, misery disappears. -Osho
So yeah, if you are feeling some woe, okay. Don’t try to pretend you feel better than you feel. But don’t see it as something gone horribly wrong, okay? See it as an indication, nay, an opportunity, to transform here. You can feel better. You can adjust your outlook and adjust your choices and find ways to feel better. Honestly, feeling upset with yourself is often a much bigger deal than the actual situation was anyway.
Letting your feelings run their course and then deciding to get back on track to a better-feeling place is the way you get beyond sorrow.
When something goes wrong with the house, I sometimes get anxious or overreact. I am bothered because I feel helpless to fix it, much like this sink. In reality, I have plenty of resources at my disposal and there are multiple paths to a solution. I already know this for something as trivial as a clogged sink, but the same principle applies to everything. The Universe has resources at the ready all the time. We don’t have to come up with the answers. We just have to manage our emotions well enough we can be inspired to some.
So hang in the moment as much as possible. If all is not sunshine and roses? Okay, I get it. Life isn’t always. Just feel what you feel without adding angst about how you feel to the mix. Take time out and try not to get it all over everybody else if you can.
And then, when you can? Let go a little. Relax a little. Know you’ll figure it out as you go. In truth, that’s the only way we figure anything out: as we go.
Are you figuring it out as you go?
