Emotional Intelligence FTW
The King of Cups turned up a week ago, as well. At that time, I took him as a reminder to remain calm, and to do my level best to nurture calm in others.
A big part of that effort involves empathy. If one cannot feel what another is feeling, particularly when negative emotional states are present, it becomes difficult to guide them toward positive mental and emotional states.
Obviously, of paramount importance is to set an example.
During this challenging period, it is especially critical to spend more time in meditation, prayer, and other activities which cultivate security and calm.
