short circuit

Jen lays down and wrestles in her sleep
Moonlight spills on comic books
And superstars in magazines

~ Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand
by Primitive Radio Gods
Typically, the 8 of Air corresponds with a mental loop, that playing out of a scene over and over again with varying permutations of woulda-coulda-shoulda. The flavor today is a little different. Today's 8 of Air speaks of comparison and how that activity short circuits, undermines your work in this world.

As the title of the chosen song indicates, you've got the money or the tools or the resources, but they simply won't work where you're standing. You need to move on. You need to find where your resources are beneficial rather than trying to make them work where they won't.

See, what you have to offer is unique. It simply isn't like anyone else's. There is no comparison. There are, however, better places to go for your unique talent or offering. It's tough to watch another succeed where you're blocked, but they're different. Again, no comparison.

So.

I've said this before: Fly your freakflag. Don't get caught in the mental loop of fitting to conform when there's fertile ground for your unique abilities elsewhere. That fertile ground might not be found in one day, but no matter. You have Your Work to do. Get out of your head and do it.
