"Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which colour to slide down on the rainbow." - Douglas Pagels
As I write this, we are in the thick of the year’s first eclipse season and it is affecting me. It is time for me to take a break and cut back. This is why.
I am so tired.
I love my kids across all times and dimensions and back. They are at an age where they are draining me and as much as my husband is helping me, it feels like it isn’t enough. Which adds insult to injury as he’s a shift worker. He’ll come home and give me a break for 30 - 60 minutes a day for some time for myself and it still isn’t enough.
The past 6 months have been hard. I mentioned earlier in the year in posts and on my blog, that we moved and then helped my elderly mother move. Just as she was ready to move into her house, her heart went out of rhythm. Now atrial fibrillation is a hereditary trait in our family but since this condition initially presented itself she would go to the hospital, the doctors would chemically revert her heart into the sinus rhythm, and all would be good.
Not this time.
After three hospital admissions over the space of a month, a pacemaker was inserted to treat her bradycardia. Medications are being given to putting her heart back into sinus rhythm but they aren't as effective as they used to be. Her heart rate is at a normal rate now and we are waiting to see if she requires further surgery.
Of course, this has put a toll on her and us. The worry and the strain of balancing everything have taken their toll. I have two new projects in the pipeline too and I am struggling to work on those as well!
So that is when I decided to take hubby’s advice and not try to balance things anymore like the Libran that I am. But to cut down things cold like the Aquarian he is.
I’ve always been envious of this Aquarian quality. The Aquarian coldness has its negatives but when it comes to self-preservation it has great positives. It has turned out to be my sanity's saviour.
I took stock of what needed to be done to get back to top form. I need to sleep better, eat better, exercise more and have more fun. If that means playing cubby house with my kids for 10 hours then bring it on!
I need to focus on what is important professionally. These two projects are a priority but what comes right before that, is my clients. They are the life force, the Sun, of my business. So I am still taking bookings for after my weeks off. I will cut back on the social posts and forecasting videos as they take quite a bit of time and energy. I will make more videos down the track as guided by my higher self for major transits and other tidbits that I feel need to be out there. They will come as few and far between in the coming months.
I will also keep you abreast of all the major transits on my limited socials and the forecasts will be present in my free newsletter emails and blog posts. You can subscribe through my Instagram bio and website to keep on top of what is going on astrologically.
This I know will keep me in top form. It will allow me to focus on my family and myself so I am in even better shape for you, dear reader/follower/client!
Sending you lots of love and astrological blessings,
