After surviving the silly season and just before 2024, I contracted COVID.
It brought me to bed, I felt weak, slightly nauseous and I had to sleep deeply.
In reality, it felt like a “walk in the park” when compared to the condition I have for the past two thirds of my life. The condition I have and that occasionally flares up, cyclical vomiting syndrome, is way harder than anything I’ve ever endured due to the amount of pain and agony. I used to have this condition on a monthly basis, but for the past 4 years, I only have it occasionally depending on my mind and body.
Health is a blessing that we take for granted… My advice is … “Don’t”.
TEA AND REST
This “COVID holiday” I got has been healed by tea, rest and good food. Some people might say that is different for everybody, which I agree. Yes, I might be lucky with the genes I have but daily, I do all the little things that will boost my immune system. I do sports, get good sleep, eat good food, I don’t drink or smoke, I avoid dairy and gluten and try to manage stress the best I can. Saying that in the COVID “russian roulette” I was lucky.
This time COVID, made me stop, read, rest and honour my body. Made me look over the horizon of 2024 and understand the speed of life, the time to stop and the time to act. Maybe I was trying to act too soon, knowing what’s to come, after all I’m an astrologer, maybe I have to let the change happen within first.
I have to let the change mature before it is time to act as I know that in 2024, action will be needed. The calm before the storm, not necessarily a nefarious storm, but a needed one.
Understanding the cycles of life helps you make sense of this erratic existence, helps you to prepare for what’s to come and to make me most with the hand you’re dealt.
