When the New Mexico Health Department ran out of regular flu shots this fall, I was bummed out, but I learned of a way to get a flu shot – go to the doctor! And that is what started all the assessments, x-rays, physical therapy, and blood work.
Yesterday I learned that the local health department had the swine flu shots for us older folks. As I had other errands to run today, I stopped there to get my shot. Well, the doors were locked – staff was furloughed today by order of the governor. And Monday is a holiday. If I am to get a swine flu shot it will be next week. Now I’m debating whether it is something I really need. It’s been blocked from me so far – perhaps I’m not supposed to get it.
So I mosey over to Walmart to pick up a couple of prescriptions. Guess what? The pharmacist is at lunch for 15-20 more minutes. At least I was the first in line. Thank goodness, because within a couple of minutes there were easily 12 others in line behind me.
See what I mean about timing? It makes me wonder if I am ‘listening’, using my intuition to access the things I need. Yet, it’s so true that I have no control over anything, really. Really.
Tonight is a solar eclipse – a new moon, in the sign Capricorn (both the sun and moon are in the same sign.) Mercury went direct today, but there will be some lagging until it gets back to where it was when it first went ‘retrograde’. I pay attention to these things, especially as they apply to my astrology chart. LOTS going on there. This a year – of something – for me! As the planets in the sky move around, they are hitting a lot of places in my chart, with energies that I’m not sure how they will manifest. Timing. The planets’ movements affect us all. I wonder what is going to show up, in time.
