“And all the obstacles along the way
May feel so tremendous
There are guides and spirits all along the way
Who will befriend us.” Van Morrison
“Everything we do counts.There is really no such thing as a small act of service or goodness.” Caroline Myss
Today when I was driving home from the grocery store, I got a flat tire. I pulled the off the highway and on to a back road.
I was going to call AAA to come change the tire and then remembered that the mute button was stuck on my cell phone and it was impossible for anyone I called to hear me. I debated going to a house nearby or to my friend’s house up the road but it’s really not a time to be dropping in on people.
I was contemplating how best to proceed. A few cars drove past but then when a motorcycle was approaching I waved my arms wildly. It took him awhile to slow the bike down but then he turned around and coming towards me smiling said,”Do you need help?”
I explained my predicament and he held out his cell phone, “Here you can use mine.” I called AAA and made arrangements. And thanked him.
” Do you need anything else? Are you okay here?” he asked,” Do you feel safe?” I did feel safe being a short distance from a friend’s house.
“Thank you SO much,” I called after him as he returned to his bike.
He turned and smiled at me and said, “That’s what it’s all about , isn’t it? Helping other people? ”
This is very much the spirit of Neptune in Pisces where it is now – being of service to others. People born under the watery sign of Pisces often find their fulfillment in life through serving others or doing work that contributes to making the world a kinder place.
