‘Ilmbrücke in Weimar’ By Christian Rohlfs 1892 {{PD}}

The 11th Is A Good Day To . . . stay calm and think carefully; here’s why: there are a couple of influences with the potential to be exceptionally confusing as we try to navigate them. The gist of it is that the mind will be too strongly affected by events of the past to reason as effectively as we actually need it to, and perceptions are ‘assaulted’, in a way, so that we suffer contradictory reasoning that may leave us frazzled in trying to sort through it. The best thing I think I can do is elaborate on the pair of influences; awareness of their existence is probably the most important thing in gaining an accurate perspective.

One involves discord created by health matters that appear to conflict with our desires, ambitions, and wants. It seems either our health precludes pursuing what we’d like to, or the steps we must take to preserve health appear to create barriers to getting what we want. Here’s my take: you can’t get and enjoy what you’d like to, can’t achieve, if you’re dead. That should make it clear that protecting the health must be the priority.

The other influence brings delusions, illusions, fantasies, and nebulous, haunting fears to bear on the health picture; if we are frightened that we don’t have an accurate picture of what’s healthy, what’s right, it’s likely to preoccupy us, draining our energy from pursuit of goals and dumping it into a bottomless pit of anxiety. Look at it this way: we do our best to stay healthy, and we worry about illness only when we actually begin to experience it. There’s no sense in worrying about something that hasn’t happened and may never happen. Do your best to act in the best health interests of yourself and others, and cross the ‘worry bridge’ only if and when you come to it.

A Good Day To . . . is based on the aspects perfecting on each day, Pacific time.
