This can represent your efforts to keep a watch on your energy consumption and your reserves. So the business of running your life and expressing your energy/activities well. A sort of measuring or weighing up the sum total, the worth of what you have done in and with your life.
Example: Experienced a long, long dream this morning. It all seemed to centre around the process of sorting out the account/bookkeeping for, I think, two of my sons and myself. The dream went on and on, with different sorts of ‘foreground’ events, but with the process of bookkeeping going on in the background.
