Think of Others

Hi Folks!

About to jump on the road, so this one will be a quick one for the weekend!

Interestingly enough, even though this will be a quick reading, we ended out pulling two Major Arcana cards -- suggesting we might want to consider this message a little more seriously than we might ordinarily do.  Even though it's "quick" -- it still could be important.

Our first card is -- The Hermit.

Well, we saw the Hermit just the other day.  This card suggests applying wisdom you've gained through experience and training.  Not quickly reacting and jumping to a conclusion, but patiently and fairly evaluating all conditions first in order to understand a situation the best you can.

How should we apply this?  Let's look at our second card, The Emperor.
The Emperor cares about his responsibilities -- he wants to make sure the trains run on time and that all of the needs of his people are satisfied.  Only then might he think of himself.

When we put these two together, we get a suggestion that we want to think before we react to a situation.  Be patient and try to understand the situation (and the people involved and their motivations) as best as you can.  Ask questions if you need to.

Furthermore, rather than evaluating a situation by how it affects you, examine it to understand how it affects those you care about.  Consider their needs -- I don't want to say put their needs before yours, but consider how being able to satisfy their needs will affect your own well-being.  You may find the feeling of being able to be responsible for those you care for provides it's own reward.

Sorry for the quick reading this time around -- will see you again next week!
