Day 9: Bathin Upon Ashtaroth #domagick
Today’s Plan: Sun Salutations, vitamins, blog posts, lunch with a friend, writing, pick up niece from school, pick up groceries, run to bank, do a mail run, taxes, potentially more writing, meditations, dream work. My task focus for today is to manage the schedule and get as much done as possible. Especially with regard to taxes.
Tarot Card of the Day: Six of Swords — Viewing things from a wider perspective and gaining distance to see it more clearly. I have been working to step back and take a long, hard look at what I’m doing, why I’m doing it, and what I’m doing both right and wrong. So this card is fitting. It’s also a minor transition card, suggesting something has changed. I take it as a win because it suggests the magick is starting to manifest.
I started out the morning catching up on yesterday’s blog post and starting today’s. Then I went to lunch with a friend, ran all my errands, and wrote about 500 words. 1000 short.
I found myself putting off the taxes again, so gave myself a deadline. Told myself I have to have it all done by next Tuesday so I can drop it off at the accountant.
Made dinner, spent some time with the husband (this is necessary), and then did my chakra and balancing meditation. It’s now 10pm. I have not done any yoga and likely won’t. I have already put the seal of Bathin under my pillow. I have decided to try a little more writing before going to bed.
But the yoga is out. I need more hours in the day – or a housekeeper. Today’s realization – procrastination is my favorite form of self-sabotage. Also, when I have work days filled with other to-do’s like errands and lunches and so on — I have a hard time focusing on the WORK that needs to be done. I am feeling a bit resentful toward the fact that I have obligations and real adult responsibilities at times because it does pull me away from the work I truly WANT to be doing. But then maybe all of these are excuses I use to procrastinate. I think I need to start looking at the root causes of all of this. Root causes are almost always fear-based.
