Another Point of View

There’s something in the air. I don’t know how to explain it. There is a level of frustration a lack of ease – that I can’t seem to find my way out of. I look for more input.

I look at my horoscope:

Aspects of your life that you’ve neglected lately might haunt you on a day like today, Virgo. Make sure you’re keeping up with all your responsibilities. Things may come to a dramatic climax at this time, and you could find yourself at an important crossroads. Nervous energy could cause you to run around frantically in search of the right path. Don’t let indecision keep you from getting where you need to go.

And then another:

Today and tonight, pause when something plays over and over in your mind and brings conflicting and overwhelming feelings. You’re experiencing a completely new set of emotions and need to understand them. It’s vital to communicate honestly, keeping feelings and thoughts out in the open as much as possible.

I choose a tarot card:

The Empress:
Keywords: ideas, creative impulses, intellect.
Astrological Correspondence: Venus.
The Empress signifies the queen of life, the ideal woman, the archetypal mother. She represents the matriarchal goddess, being part of nature, fertility, sexuality, and the generative forces. As the life-giving mother she is connected to the Earth and the natural rhythms, the appreciation of the senses. As a card of good fortune she signifies that if we are gentle and caring, as well as patient, we can bring anything to fruition; we have to be able to wait until the time is right for action so that we can reap the rewards; as a result, hard work pays off and relationships become satisfying. The Empress can, in negative situations, also depict vanity, undeveloped creativity, stagnation, and
apathy.
Then the I-Ching oracle:
It is important to work and play well with others today. If you are a boss, be fair and open minded. If you are an employee, be hardworking and good-natured. If you are dealing with difficult or stubborn people, or coping with someone’s mistakes, you first need to find the right way to approach them. First you must stop judging them and listen more. If you can find some common ground between you, then there is the possibility of real progress.
I don’t put too much weight into any of these things. They can be fun, though. At times when nothing seems to make sense, sometimes the broad scope of a prediction designed for any stranger can hit startlingly close to home.

  1. Yes–that part especially about waiting for the time when it’s right for action. The mind can have so many projects and ideas, but sometimes I’m learning to wait until the flow decides when and where IT wants to move…

  2. Pretty freaky how horoscopes, et al, can be so accurate. Or is it the human psyche, the subconscious act of interpreting those readings to fit our circumstances? Either way, it’s kind of ooky.

    • Sometimes they are right on…and I know they are designed for that, with subtle references and bland suggestions that anyone could fit around their circumstances…but still. You’re right: ooky.
