Tough Decisions

I made some tough decisions yesterday and today. Yesterday I canceled the Inner Child Cards course that I had planned January and also the one that comes after that. I had some flyers out to advertise it and they are all gone, but it was just on one event. People there were interested in tarot but not so much that they will intend to follow it. So, no harm done. I changed the dates of another course, which means I do not teach three evenings in a week. Today I postponed yet another a course to January 2009. That is too far away for people to be interested in, but I probably get into problems if I teach it next autumn. So I resist the Devil and follow the Star, that was the message of the robin, the bird that heralds the coming winter. My many courses take the toll of everyone in my little nuclear family. Although I make these changes mostly for my daughter, my husband complains about the tension the preparation of these courses give me. So we all benefit from it. I wonder if all those ambivalent cards I received this autumn during Sukkot were foreboding this problem.

I pulled a card to illustrate the canceling and postponing of my courses and I received Five of Wands of the Fantastic Menagerie tarot. 


The card shows that it is a battle against myself, against my ego and ambition. I was not easy for me to make these changes.
