When the caretaker of numerology appears, we are given permission to do the one thing that we often don't think to do — put ourselves first. When you put yourself first, it feels kind of selfish, doesn't it?

You think of all the things that you could be doing for someone else, especially if you're a mom or a dad. When you rush off to the gym instead of run home, you think of the dog, the cat. Maybe in the middle of a vacation, instead of focusing on the moment, you selfie and Instagram your images like crazy because you're thinking of your followers, and your parents while you take a vacation that was meant to relax you.

When you decide you're going to order a salad instead of a sandwich (because salads take longer to eat) may make you late getting back to your desk to make afternoon phone calls, so, of course in that moment you're not thinking of yourself then either, you're thinking about your boss.

Life is complicated like that, and we all are in the same big boat! I'll admit, right now, I'm focused on writing, but I'm also thinking of the 101 things I have to do when I'm done writing. Our minds are prone to wander off to caretaking for others. But today, we are asked to think of someone else... ourselves. 

Putting ourselves may feel selfish at first, but it's not. Deciding to do things that enhance our personal well-being may not even feel comfortable at all, but it is a necessary practice. 

In fact, famous people with a Life Path of 6 were also individuals who mastered the art of self-keeping. For example, Albert Einstein was a Life Path 6. How did he think so clearly? For starters, he wore the same outfit every day so he wouldn't have to waste time worrying about what he was going to wear (don't we all!).

He honored himself but allowing his own rhythms of life to guide his thinking. He meditated. He gave himself afternoon naps when needed. There's a story about his nap time ritual where he would put something in his hand as he dozed off.

When it dropped he would wake up. That mini-power nap allowed him to generate a new idea. He gave his mind the rest that it needed to process thoughts. Caring for himself helped him to be one of the greatest caretakers of our world. Where would we be without the inventions and contributions made by Albert Einstein? 

There are days when we don't give ourselves two seconds to process our thoughts! It's difficult when our cell phones are constantly in the palm of our hands.

Today, let's remember that in order to care for others, we have to take care of ourselves first, and if not first, then simultaneously. It's the right thing to do. :)

There is symbolism on each Tarot card that you can use to provide insight when things are unclear. Check out your zodiac sign for today, April 9th, 2018 daily tarot reading and astrology predictions.
