When working together as a team, the goal of the team must be more important than any individual’s motive. With all things in life you need a balance, so you also must make sure that everything is fair, and no one is being taken advantage of.
To have an effective team, there must be clarity. Everyone must know their part. This requires communication which takes us to…
The 3 of Swords in the middle of the week. This is about using logic over emotion.
If you find yourself in the midst of a highly charged emotional atmosphere, we can clear the storm by using logic to sort through our emotions.
The most sensible and logical solution to a problem may not be the most immediately emotionally satisfying.
However, if we let our emotions overtake us and ignore our logic…this can lead to us becoming soft, lazy, self-serving, complacent.
This bring us to the 9 of Cups.
Using logic over emotion and cooperating with your community will ultimately bring a deeper sense of emotional fulfillment.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking you should only do things that make you feel good.
Cliché statements like “follow your heart” and “if it feels good, do it, if it doesn’t, don’t” may sometimes accurately apply in our lives…
But they can also be dangerous if we don’t critically analyze our own motivations and why something makes us feel good.
For example, stepping into our Highest Potential may mean doing something that is extremely challenging.
But if you choose to instead do what feels best, you could miss out on an opportunity for growth, learning and experience.
Not only that, but if you could’ve benefited others by making a different choice, then you’re actually robbing humanity of your gifts.
Working through your difficult emotions and keeping yourself mentally fit will ultimately be more satisfying anyway because you’re fulfilling a deeper need, and that is to participate in life and contribute to society in a way that is useful and helpful in the long term.
