Start Fresh

Hi there!

Hope your week's begun well; I finally started my physical therapy for my foot yesterday. Not much to say other than I fell asleep while they were doing the ultrasound treatment!

We've got an irritating and intermittant problem with the air conditioner in one of our cars. We had it completely replaced about a year and a half ago -- and it made a strange noise as soon as they replaced it. Still, it worked okay and the noise wasn't that objectionable, so we didn't do anything about it. Over time, the noise got louder and louder until we finally took it in -- and found out that our warranty had expired and we had to pay for it all over again!

If we had taken it back right away, they would have fixed it for free -- big lesson learned. Anyway, the new replacement also makes a noise -- but it's intermittent. Might happen once a day or even once a week. It's not objectionable; once it makes the noise, it's okay again -- but I remember the lesson we learned the first time: "Little noises grow into big noises and warranties expire, so get it fixed when they're still little noises and under warranty!"

Took it to the shop yesterday -- and it actually made the noise for them (but only once). When we picked it up this morning (last night about 9:00pm, my daughter said, "Oh yeah, the car place called and said you could pick up the car!"), it made the same noise as we pulled out of the lot ... so we turned around and returned the key for them to try again. Hope they have more success this time!

How about some quick words from my sponsors, then on to the reading! As always, I try to rely on sponsors who offer something interesting either free or at a low cost. I'm very grateful whenever you give them a click and check them out (it keeps this free reading going!)

We'll again pull two cards -- the first suggests something we should focus on for the week. The second suggests things we might consider in order to fully benefit from the attributes of the first card.

The cards are:

Four of Wands

The Empress (Reversed)

The Four of Wands suggests celebration -- perhaps for a successful campaign or endeavor or simply good performance in a task or assignment. I always like to pause and consider those things I have to be thankful for when I see this card. When I identify them, it's good to take a moment and "feel good". This helps recharge me and helps me face other challenges where I haven't been quite so successful.

Let's look at our second card for clues as to what types of challenges we might examine -- and the reversed Empress strongly suggests we look at family or home matters. I think most of us have some family-oriented encounter where we could improve the interaction -- while the Empress suggests we look for this type of matter, the Four of Wands suggests we go into things "fresh". Let's not clutter things with old baggage -- we'll close that door while recharging ourselves with the Four of Wands. This will help us face family matters with a fresh eye and no holdover gripes or preconceptions.

And that's about it this week; I look forward to seeing you again next week. As always, if you're interested in a private reading, please try my sponsors above or my list of readers at http://www.woodsongtarot.com/readers.html . I also welcome your comments at http://woodsongtarot.blogspot.com !
