|Tarot of Quotes|
Sometimes the dark side wins. We have to face that. Life never runs smoothly.
If you are upset about the result of the US presidential election, then I don't want to make it look better than it is by saying It's going to be okay, because it probably won't.
The global year card for 2017 is the Wheel of Fortune, which coincides with Trump's inauguration. Our luck will change, for better or for worse, and it's likely to be a rough ride ahead.
If you feel disillusioned, give yourself time to let it pass, and then get to work to ensure that the Jedi will return. Because that's the way the Wheel of Fortune works.
We get thrown into the deep end, but it's up to us how we get out of it. The way to do it is not to resign to fate but take positive action.
Here are some ideas:
1. Reassure those people around you, who are afraid of how they might be affected by the new leadership. Let them know you stand by them and will speak up for them.
Give them a hug. Make sure they feel supported. Keep in mind you are powerful, because you are part of the majority, who voted for the other side. You are not alone.
2. Don't let anyone tell you to "get over it" and stop expressing your thoughts. You have the right to voice your opinion whenever you like as we live in a free democracy. The opposition won't shut up about it, and neither should you.
3. Take regular breaks from news and social media. You don't need to read or listen to all that shit hitting the fan right now. Most of it is speculation anyway, so it's a waste of time worrying about it now.
4. Whatever you do, don't lose hope. Remember, the Wheel of Fortune keeps turning. Nothing ever stays the same, and you can be part of influencing the change process. Your input can make a difference even on a small scale.
When the result was announced in Europe on the 9th November, it was a poignant moment, because on the same day 27 years ago, the Berlin Wall came down.
Equally poignant, the same day was also the 78th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the night in Germany when Jewish shops and synagogues were burnt and Jewish citizens murdered.
The Wheel of Fortune keeps turning. Today you may feel like you stand in its shadow, but by not giving up you will rise up into the sun once again.
It will take time and effort, but hey, let's do it.
