Humid and cloudy

I’m still very upset about the insurance situation. Welcome to the US, where you work your butt off, pay into insurance funds for years and then they get to either take it away or tell you they’ve decided not to pay when you need it.

Between the insurance industry and Eminent Domain, within 50 years, only CEOs will be able to own their own homes.

Anyway, I need to take a few days to find out more information, reassess, and decide what to do. I have to earn enough this year in order to get my insurance next year; by the end of next year, hopefully, the union’s plan will be a moot point with me anyway.

The Universe having a laugh at my expense: after getting so upset about the insurance and wondering how much harder and faster I can work without driving myself into a full physical and emotional breakdown (which my insurance would probably decide not to pay for anyway, although I have full coverage this year), I open a yoga magazine to a page talking about slowing down in order to get more done! There were actually some good points, but, as 99.9% of articles are, it was geared to the 9-5 working world and not to the rest of us.

Who am I kidding? No such thing as 9-5 working world anymore. Now it’s 7 AM – 8:30 PM – more hours for less of everything. They lied to us, all those years ago, when they promised us so much extra leisure time and a high quality of life in the 21st century. Everyone I know is working multiple jobs and juggling like crazy just to keep their heads above water. The leaders of the country send our children to get killed in war, while theirs go to film premieres and night clubs. The people who actually do the work get farther and farther into debt simply trying to feed and clothe their families, while the parasites at the top feed off the work of others and make huge personal profits. Something’s very out of whack here.

Anyway, it was good to have an actual day of yesterday. Other than my lovely trip upcounty, I read and I did three loads of laundry and caught up on some computer stuff.

I have to figure out how to focus July, so that in August I can really dig in to do the work I need to do for my insurance.

The answers won’t come in a minute. It will need some time and care to come up with solutions. And maybe a good tarot reading to specify some of the options. If I spend the day thinking about questions, tonight, as the moon turns from dark to new, maybe I can figure out some of the answers.

As I’ve said since the Chiron and Uranus retrogrades started, I’m getting squeezed. I guess the Universe is determined that I leap, not flow, from one career to the other. If they’re going to push this hard, they damn well better have some answers to the practicalities of the transition.

Off to the train – hopefully, I’m just in for the day today. But, one never knows.

Good luck with the insurance - that truly sucks.
I don't know anything about your insurance, but there is a new type of plan out where you take a big deductible, but you get to lower your premium, and put the deductible in the bank to spend, tax free, on medical expenses. I know Anthem Blue Cross has it. It might be worth a look (or it might not, I'm sure as heck not an expert on this stuff!).
