Empath

Daily Draw: Oracle of the Radiant Sun ~ Empathy

Pisces ruled by the Moon in the 12th House
Empath, wears heart on sleeve
Great need for emotional security, tendency to addiction
Gifted with all around good taste, shy and spiritual

Empathy is why I mostly stick to the headlines and only read hard news. The stories of pedophilia, torture, rape, mass starvation in a world full of food...they throw my whole world off, I can't get away from the mental images. So I can truly understand this triad would need the safety net security base and lean toward compulsions or addictions.

I'm reminded by this card the world is full of evil, always has been. But used to be, you only heard about the evil in your own neighborhood. Time passed and the world got smaller and we learned the evil wasn't a one-of, these atrocities were common. Then the newspaper and internet ages were upon us and we found the world was drowning in evil...so much so that good seems like an aberration. Evil seems the norm and empaths must shield themselves with whatever tool they can find. What a shame because they could offer a path to the light for some of the harmed.

"When you start to develop your powers of empathy and imagination, the whole world opens up to you." ~ Susan Sarandon 1946-

  1. There are times when I have to go on a "news fast" to maintain sanity. Too bad the media won't show a balance of the good and bad...

  2. I never watch the news, either. Good is also universal, as is love, but they are found far more easily in blogs and in daily life than in the media. Sad, but true.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
