Observer

The booklet describes this card as observation from a distance.  Objectivity, neutral observation.

Can we really have a good view from such a distance?  My father always spouted words of advice, old sage wisdom snippets.  One of them that still stays with me is "Believe none of which you hear and only half of what you see."  Can objectivity be achieved viewing something so far away, seemingly out of reach.  I think not.  
Perspective maybe the order of the day.  Why would a wily trickster like a fox be working on gestating the egg instead of eating it?  It is a curious world we live in.  There are lots of things that aren't what they appear to be, best to keep an open mind while observing what goes on around me.
WISDOM of the ORACLE -Colette Baron-Reid

Since the daily draw pictured an observation of the Moon, I wondered why we don't see more cards with an observation of the Earth?  Maybe we are so concerned with whats going on everywhere else we don't spend enough time thinking about where we are.

  1. I agree, perspective is key. It is so easy to get wound up about something that would be nothing without close observation bias.

  2. Yep, we get so consumed with looking at how something affects us, we forget to look beyond our self-orbit.
