New Skills

Following on from yesterday's reading, I did some research which showed a collaboration or legally buying outside input might be a lot more costly than the projects warrant.  Therefore, I have been thinking about which aspects of these projects I could possibly do myself.  For one aspect, my DH actually said, "Couldn't you do that yourself?", which given with one project a couple of years ago he said "But you can't…" (and I did) I take as a good sign that I do have the capacity to do this.

Anyhow, I decided to see what light the cards might shed.  I drew a Lenormand line, shown here from the Esmeralda Lenormand (Sensoriall).

Child (new/childhood), Storks (progress), Key (solution)

At first glance, the cards seem pretty positive.  Applying the Houses technique I like gives:
1) Child (13) - 14 Fox (skills)
2) Storks (17) - 19 Tower (corporate)
3) Key (33) - 36 Cross (ethical burdens)

Doing this myself would take new skills, or reactivating ones from childhood, but would bring corporate progress as the solution to some ethical dilemmas.  The only real downside is that this will take some work to even get started on, delaying the projects.  Still, I don't have a real deadline here...


  1. I think most normal folks don't give themselves enough credit for the skills and talents they have. I'm with your DH - go for it! I have confidence that you can manage this. :)

    1. I sure hope so, Bev. I've been thinking about what you said about why you just do little batches of your Lojong cards, and while I don't know if I have quite that eye for detail, I can see the benefit in being on top of even sub-parts of this project :)

  2. I have to agree with Bev on this one Kerry. We never ever know what we are capable of until we put the effort into, as we say in Nova Scotia and gett'er done! I say believe in yourself, you can do it!

    I liked this layout and simple direct interpretation. <3

    1. I'm not sure everyone would see this as fitting the KISS criteria, given I've layered in an alternative Houses method. Still, I'm glad you like the layout and interpretation, Cat :)
      And yes, I shall just have to put the effort in and get'er done! I made a start yesterday, and do think it can work. At the moment, my biggest stumbling block is finding the time for this. I need the house to be quiet (mornings are always noisy round here), but I also need the baby to be happy playing with someone else (which normally happens in the morning)… yeesh!
