Merry Christmas!

I hope your week's been going well so far -- the shopping frenzy is wild up here in Chicago, but I'm trying to stay out of stores.

Was in the Post Office a few days ago -- and I'd like to pass along one of my Post Office pet peeves. It goes like this -- someone wants to mail a package, the postal clerk asks "Priority Mail or Express Mail"? When asked the difference, the clerk says "Well, we'll deliver Priority in two or three days, but Express Mail will be THERE tomorrow!" They usually close the deal for the three times pricier Express Mail.

It bugs me because Priority Mail will most always be in your recipient's hands before -- quite often, DAYS before -- Express Mail would be there!

The key is what the clerk means by "will be THERE tomorrow". Note he doesn't say it will be delivered tomorrow -- just that it will be "there". When you read the fine print, you find out that all they guarantee is that the package will be at the recipient's post office tomorrow -- that's the "there" they're talking about.

Once at the post office, it's now up to the mail carrier to grab the package and deliver it. Maybe he'll get it the same day -- but maybe he won't. Assume he does pick up the package and attempts to deliver. Express Mail requires that the recipient sign for the package. If no one's there to sign in the middle of the day, the carrier leaves one of those yellow notes directing the recipient to come by the post office -- no sooner than the next day -- to pick up the package. If the carrier is like mine, they won't even bother to get out of the truck to ring the bell -- they'll automatically leave the yellow note even if I'm at home.

So, now the recipient has to go to the post office for the package. That may take a few days before they have time to do so. Add up the hassle and the long lines at the post office, and you'll see why the Priority Mail package (which does not have to be signed for) usually gets to the recipient long before Express Mail -- plus it usually costs a third of Express Mail prices!

How about some quick words from my sponsors, then on to the reading.

We'll again pull two cards -- the first suggests something we should focus on for the week. The second suggests things we might consider in order to fully benefit from the attributes of the first card.

The cards are:

Knight of Cups

Eight of Pentacles

No reversals this week! Maybe we're moving forward now!

When we see the Knight of Cups, we're usually talking about emotions and feelings. This knight is driven by his strong sense of emotion. One problem with being too involved with emotions is that we may look inwards too much -- we may become overly concerned with how things make us feel. This is in general a good card -- but we should try to remain balanced. Remember that most Knights tend to over-react -- we may find ourselves in situations when it is easy to do so, but best if we do not! I'm thinking that the holidays tend to be a very emotional time -- let's enjoy those feelings, but not let them drive us out of whack! Keep one foot in the real world!

Lets see how our next card, the Eight of Pentacles, can help us. I've mentioned before that this eight is a "joy of work" card -- it recognizes that making an effort to attain a goal can itself be a source of enjoyment and comfort. In particular, this eight likes to do a job extremely well -- this means taking the time to check out all the details and reviewing all the important -- and not so important points.

Note that while the Knight of Cups tends to overemphasize the emotional aspects, the Eight of Pentacles helps us look at all facets of a situation. When we put them together, we find that we are able to comfort ourselves with a warm blanket of emotional feelings -- but that we don't have to be overwhelmed by those feelings. While important, they're just part of the story. Enjoy them, but remember that the Eight can help us see the entire -- and truer -- picture.

And that's about it this time! I hope things go well for you this week and look forward to talking to you again next week. As always, if you're interested in a private reading, please try my sponsors above or my list of readers at . I also welcome your comments at !
