Push And Twist

Daily Draw: String of Pearls Tarot ~ Page of Swords

The knowledge he needs to lift the sword is available, but it takes both time to access it and faith to achieve it.

I'm reminded by this card of the Social Security Administration, the arm of our government that works on behalf of senior citizens. I've been to the office four times in the last two weeks, each time being told something different has to be done before mother's account will be in order. Each clerk has been positive the others were totally wrong. I'm dragging on that sword mightily. I wonder if it is like a Chinese finger puzzle and I need to push and twist rather than pull?

  1. I know how tiresome getting paperwork in order can be, but the two runes on the card are speaking clearly of success and renewed energy. I hope that will be of help :)

  2. Demand to see the top dog. They did the same thing when we were dealing with an issue of my MIL's. They had us running around, bumping into walls, trying to get things straight. My cousin who used to work for them said the gov't paid employees who had been there a long time (who got paid more but had more knowledge) to retire early to save money. Now they have a lot of folks who are trying to learn as they go.

  3. I saw that and smiled. I understand it is the same if you call the Internal Revenue Service. Each answer to the same question brings something different.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
