I’m mostly interested in affairs of the 7th, 8th and 9th house. Relationships of all kind. Sex, death, psychology. Philosophy, beliefs and religion, luck, expansions, courtrooms and education.
I also death with caregivers to the very old or dying.
I also like topics concerned with business and health and children. I also work with people who are caregivers to the very old or dying but recently, I’ve been developing a new specialty. The clients are Millennials in most cases; dealing with aging parents (who are reasonably healthy).
That’s enough right there to let you know, it’s sticky. Most of the clients want to help their parent(s) but many of them cling. It’s quite hard on the adult child because, hey! It’s the parents who are supposed to teach their children boundaries. If they have none of their own, then what?
Our culture is such that people around 40 years old are taking care of themselves, their children and their parents. There has to be some lines drawn somewhere, just to survive.
I don’t think this topic is adequately addressed. Just comprehending, you’re set to become a parent to your parent is enough to see most people stutter. You know why? Because no one warns you about this. There’s no teaching on it.
I have a few reasons for posting about this. First, if you need help with a situation like this, I can help you. I am strict but fair and judgment is pretty good in this area.
Second, if you are on the parent end of this, I’m sorry if you don’t like reading this, but if you’re kid needs a break or some space, it’s incumbent upon you to release your grip on them. These transitions are quite hard on people but if you face them head on there are great rewards for all involved.
Last, if you are younger, Zoomer age, be advised, in the future, you may also face this. Half the problem is you don’t see this coming because no one tells you. Then it happens and it hits you like a truck.
Are you involved in something like this?
