Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
39: Temporary Obstacles
Saturday, April 2nd, 2011
General Meaning: Have temporary obstacles been blocking your way? In the course of trying to reach a goal or to fulfill a personal ambition, obstructions inevitably present themselves. This is not always a bad thing. Obstacles, difficulties and even setbacks that are eventually overcome often turn into assets. Without irritating grains of sand, oysters would never make pearls.
The obstacles pointed to here are not permanent, yet they are in the way. As when a large boulder falls in the road, the best course of action is usually to go around it, rather than to try to move it out of the way. Temporary obstacles must be seen for what they are — temporary — and should not be allowed to take on too much significance.
A positive aspect of even the most difficult obstacle is that it may cause a person to turn inward, and gain greater depth and character. While the ignorant bemoan their fate and seek to blame their problems on others, the wise seek the cause of the problem within themselves. Through this type of introspection, obstacles become a means for personal growth and self-discovery.
Without air resistance, no plane would ever fly.
If you are facing temporary obstacles, try not to be overly concerned. Obstacles are a part of achieving every goal and furthering every undertaking. Setbacks and reverses can affect morale, but keeping up your self-confidence in the face of challenges is part of a successful solution to many of life’s problems. Obstacles of short duration are best handled with a yielding attitude. Go around the rock, don’t put your shoulder to it.

About the Number 7
Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: 8-Bit Tarot
Often including the image of a fulcrum which helps to balance competing needs against the greater good, and a two-edged sword to symbolize the precision needed to make clear judgments, this card reminds us to be careful to attend to important details. It’s a mistake to overlook or minimize anything where this card is concerned. The law of Karma is represented here — what goes around comes around.
Everything is happening so fast now that you won’t even have time to think about what to do; you just do it. You barely finish one project or handle a personal issue when something new comes at you from a different direction. Fortunately, you are well equipped to react quickly when the Moon is in your sign. No planning is needed today; you can always make adjustments later on.
You may long for some peace and quiet now, but even if you’re resistant to getting involved in a group activity, you’re able to muster up enough energy to get by. Others may perceive you as lazy because they’re unable to feel your enthusiasm. However, limiting most of your activity to the non-physical world of emotional fantasy isn’t a waste of time since today’s dreams can turn into tomorrow’s reality.
You may be quite excited about what’s ahead with six planets traveling through your 11th House of Long-Term Goals. Ironically, the future may seem more real than the present moment. Unfortunately, it may be much harder than you think to execute plans today. Instead of trying to manage all the variables and power your way toward your destination, let go of control. Floating on the waves without resistance is more productive now than struggling to control your direction.
You are feeling stressed out today because your friends expect you to be active now and you want to relax. Even if you spend much of the day at home, it’s challenging to take your mind off unsettling dynamics at work or in your community. Thankfully, you don’t have to bring the tension to resolution now. Instead, allow your feelings to ebb and flow with your own emotional tides, putting off significant decisions until the pressure subsides.
Although you may be holding on to anger from an old emotional wound, it’s hard to stay in a negative place for very long today. Six planets in enterprising Aries are activating your 9th House of Adventure, enabling you to turn anxiety into action. Once you find your pace, no one will likely get in your way. However if someone does pose trouble, you should be able to overcome your annoyance by talking about your feelings.
Typically, you’re more interested in knowing that you have the facts right than exploring your feelings about what’s happening. Today, however, you can push through old emotional limitations and into new territory because you want the most intense experience you can get. Your behavior might surprise your friends or partner because usually you’re more cautious. Don’t resist your desires because you’re afraid of being judged. This is your opportunity to create positive change, so don’t let it slip through your fingers.
Working on a relationship now sounds easier than it actually is because it’s difficult to rein in your thoughts and feelings. Still, it’s a smart strategy to try your best. Be careful; if you attempt to procrastinate, you may have to deal with a close friend or partner who has a very different idea of what you should be doing today. Ultimately, don’t worry too much about other people’s expectations. Do what you can along the way, but take enough time to relax.
You aren’t so restrained in the expression of your feelings today because sweet Venus supports your key planet Pluto, making you less worried about a harsh reaction from anyone else. You might even get a kick out of stepping over the edge of acceptability, if only for the shock value. However, expressing your quirkiness is safer now because you also can focus your attention on whatever needs to get done. It’s easier to get away with being weird when you are also efficient.
You may seem overly excited today as you express yourself wholeheartedly in nearly everything you do. Others may have a hard time keeping up with you as you try to fulfill your current obligations. Although you’re on a creative roll, you still might feel as if you’re running out of time. Remember that other people need to adhere to schedules, even if you’re less concerned with the concept of linear time.
Fortunately, your day could offer the respite you seek, though it still may be challenging for you to enjoy it. A hectic day on the home front magnifies your desire for some peace and quiet, but you’ll probably be bored by the time you finally get it. Remember, there’s no reason to create drama where none previously existed. Your attitude can make all the difference in the world.
You may experience an intellectual breakthrough with respect to your place within the community today. You could learn something new from a close friend that helps you understand how much others value your contributions now. But rather than resting on your laurels and basking in the compliments, you’re already ready for the next project. It’s fine to push ahead, but first take time to acknowledge what you’ve already accomplished.
You may believe that the real world isn’t all that important now as you indulge in your fantasies. Luckily, this can become quite a spiritual journey if you are ready to minimize your material needs. Nevertheless, no matter how this kind of non-physical thinking plays itself out, financial concerns could bring you crashing back down to earth. Attend to your commitments with the same urgency that you give your dreams so you can return to your creative pursuits as soon as possible.
New Moon in Aries
Sunday, April 3, 7:32 am PDT, 10:32 am EDT
The New Moon in the first sign of the zodiac fires up restless feelings and strong desires for change. Impatience and innovation spark bright ideas that can burn out as quickly as they come if we don’t slow down to anchor them in reality. A sense of urgency is amplified by a conjunction between bold Mars and independent Uranus — both in Aries — that can provoke rebellion against rules and reason. There is genius in the air but cerebral Mercury is stuck in reverse until April 23, requiring several revisions before getting plans on track. This Sun-Moon conjunction in spontaneous Aries can free us from past inhibitions, allowing us to begin creating a radically different future.
The New Moon in Aries is the true starting point of the astrological year. While there is some danger in going too far too fast, it’s better to take chances by exploring unfamiliar territory than playing it safe. Mistakes can be corrected and other opportunities arise when we’re pro-actively pushing ahead instead of being passive now.
Well I know I am sort of running late, what can I say? A lot, lol! Just the moment I think my life is going to be normal, I get throwed another curve ball
My day started out this morning at 3:30 a.m. Why I woke up at that time I don’t know. But I woke up wide awake and ready to go. I made coffee, dried clothes, cleaned up the living room and after all that I cleaned me up. I actually sit down and put on makeup. Makeup is something that I seldom put on anymore. I wore it for years and when I quit wearing it, no one noticed at all. Which pissed me off thinking of all the time I wasted putting the stuff on! Anyway, when I am around my children they prefer their mother to wear makeup, especially the son. The daughter tells me I look better without it. I think both of them have come to realize, Mother don’t give a crap what they say. She is going to do what she darn well wants too. Back to this morning, I got all cleaned up where we could go to one of my grandchildren’s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. If you are not familiar with “The Cheese” it is a pizza place with games. The party took place at 9;30 this morning. I am sorry at that time it makes me sick to my stomach to think of eating pizza. I got to thinking back and I never ate pizza early in the mornings even when I was a teenager. Anyway, we got up and drove 25 miles to the party. We were actually early for a change. My son was glad to see us. His oldest daughter was playing games when we came in and my son was following her around. So we met up with them and talked and followed the grandkid around. I know we have to look hilarious at times. But when we first got there, we ran in to my son’s father-in-law. We walked right by him and he didn’t bother to speak or nothing. He acted like we were invisible. Which don’t bother me because his is the backside of a donkey. My son’s lovely mother-in-law wasn’t there yet. She is one of those people you would just love to meet in a dark alley and of course, I have told her this. If it appears, I don’t like these people, you are right. I don’t. The bad blood started even before my son married their daughter. I thought I was the only one that she got under their skin so bad. I was wrong. I didn’t realize how the woman was till we went out one time for my son’s birthday. We went to a local restaurant for his birthday. We were seated at a large table. We were running late that day and my son was standing outside waiting on us. He told us he just needed to get some air. We went in and future daddy-in-law was turned watching a basketball game. He didn’t turn around and speak or nothing. I sit down and looked at my husband and he looked at me. We were both thinking how rude this man was. Then during the meal, my daughter’s boyfriend at the time was talking to me about changing out a transmission in a car. When my son tried to talk, his future mommy-in-law kept telling him to shut up. Every time that boy opened his mouth, she told him to shut up, you don’t know what you are talking about, just shut up! My face got bright red and I stood up and knocked the chair in the floor. I leaned over on the table and was getting ready to shut her mouth and my daughter grabbed me. My daughter told me, I needed to go to the bathroom with her. We went to the bathroom and I think the whole restaurant heard me hit the towel holder. I busted two knuckles but I felt a hell of a lot better. So after staying in the bathroom for about 15 minutes, I cooled off. When we got back, mommy-in-law didn’t open her mouth the rest of the time. A couple of weeks later, my son was out at their house. Something was said and I don’t know what it was but my son politely told them not to mess with him because his mother was a witch. I liked to have died. I told him you just don’t go around telling that to everyone. Why do you think I waited till you were in your 20’s before you found out? Well needless to say, I live in the Bible Belt and these people have enough religion for half the country. My son was married in a church that was not his religion he was brought up in. He deserted his religion, his Path and almost his family. His wife doesn’t like for him to come out here at all. When he does he suddenly develops a backbone. I don’t know how he puts up with any of them. None of them want me around the grandkids. I have talked to my husband about it and he tells me to ignore them. That they are ignorant and you can’t combat it. But it is needless to say, they don’t like me and it don’t hurt my feelings one bit. Back to the birthday party, it went fine. Mommy-in-law and her sister held the baby the whole time, we were there. I finally ask out loud, if my son would get his daughter were I could see my grandchild. I got to kiss and love on the baby. The funny part is that see looks just exactly like my sister when she was little. She has the black hair and brown eyes, I love it. And of course, I keep telling them she looks just like her too. Evil ain’t I, lol!
So we left the party and on the way home, I got threw for a whirlwind. At one time, we bought my son a Ford Ranger. He got to working and bought himself a new truck. So we inherited the Ranger back. I would rotate driving my Explorer one day and the next the truck. I had some kind of surgery, I don’t remember what but I know the truck had sat for about a month. My cousin told me that he had put a new battery on the truck. No problem, that truck will start on a dime. Yeah, right, lying crock of —-. I was mad and I was hurting. The truck never got started and no one drove it. My lovely cousin wanted to know if I wanted to sell it. We agreed on a price and he came out here to get it. Well he liked to have never got it started. Then after he got it home, he gave me along list of things that was wrong with. I told him he should have known this stuff because he was the only mechanic that ever worked on it. The truck has never run right and half the time it just stays in the driveway of my cousin’s. Today my husband told me why the Ranger doesn’t run and do like a normal truck, he cursed it. WHAT? You did WHAT again? Then he asked me if I wanted to know why my little red jewel of a car was sitting in our driveway. This was my mindblower, he had cursed that car also. Well the sailor side of me came out. He said he didn’t want me to sell the truck and he sure in the heck didn’t want me buying that red thing. But the thought of him cursing his wife’s own car, I am still mulling this over. He knows how to curse that is for sure because he is a Druid. I am beginning to think a little on the dark side too. He mentioned cursing something a few weeks ago, told me how he would do it and everything. I just looked at him. It did bother me and give me a clue when he mentioned using blood in his cursing. When he told me this we were about 20 minutes away from the house. I kept quiet and kept praying let me get home without pulling this truck over and throwing his ass out. I got home and cleared my head some I have asked help from a higher power to help set my mind on the right course to deal with this. I have never known of anyone to curse me or any of my things especially a family member???? It leaves you dumb-founded as to what to do. If he was a total stranger, I know what I would do. He’s family. I took an oath a long time ago, I would never cast against another family member no matter what. I can take the curse off the car but the minute I do he will re-curse it. So what do you do but a binding spell on your own husband? What gets me, is my own husband going to cause me to go against my own ethics and morals? I never, ever harm or cast against a family member. I know one thing, he has gave me quite a bit to mull over. I know posting in my group use to give me comfort and clear my head. It also cleared my head enough I could hear my higher power when she talked to me. So I am sure the blog will do the same for me. If you see me posting for the next 72 hours don’t think a thing about it. I am just clearing my mind and cooling off. Till then………
If you have any suggestion or have ever been in a similar circumstance, I would love to hear how you handled it and also your suggestions.
