This is certainly a difficult card to look upon however it is a card that is needed to consider now more than ever. The version of this card shown here highlights what has gone on for far more than just this “New Era”. It has happened throughout history. The unfortunate, the oppressed, the starving children lay on the floor. One child, the oldest of the group, has his eyes open and is unable to sleep and to find peace. Visions swirl in the backdrop in his mind as he considers his family and their struggles to survive. Within these symbols we see a recurring theme, symbols of power over others, power and opression over those like himself and his siblings. What has caused this lust for power to constantly seduce us throughout the ages, having us turn a blind eye to the pain and suffering we may have caused to others, especially the ones who were not fortunate enough to be born into wealthy and powerful families. I believe one reason is a simple lack of empathy. The idea that in order to get what we want we must ignore the negative impact it may have on our fellow humans. The truth is we cannot truly rise and evolve unless we have empathy for one another, the ability to put ourselves in their shoes and, at the very least, vow to not cause any direct or indirect harm to others, especially to the poor and downtrodden. This card has appeared and, after considering it, we cannot continue to go on the way we have been. We cannot claim ignorance of the impact our actions have on other nations, other races and other people. By having more of something so simple as empathy for others, we can than all rise up and create a new world, one that holds love, peace and compassion as the ideals to strive for, together.
