work

Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work,
which is standing still and learning to be astonished.

~ Messenger by Mary Oliver
How sweet to pull this card on a Monday. Because there is work to do. I rather do wish it were just standing still and being astonished (not that one couldn't make room for that even on the busiest of days), but the 3 of Earth hints at a little more activity.

Mainly, the focus is on teamwork. You may find yourself unable to get much done unless you have a cadre of people at your side. This will require some preparation and assessing of individual skills and then delegation in an egalitarian manner. No one person is in charge. Today's endeavor is truly a group effort. From erecting buildings to managing retail to getting your people out the door with all necessities for the day, you must find your place in this work and do that thing well. Falter on your part of the project and things may, indeed, fall apart.

So.

Do your work. Know that the work you do affects others. If you do your work with attention and perseverance, others will fall into doing the same. And then everyone can have a lovely day in stillness and astonishment.
