be not alone

When the night has come / And the land is dark /
And the moon is the only light we'll see / No I won't be afraid,
no I won't be afraid / Just as long as you stand, stand by me

~ Stand By Me by King, Leiber, and Stoller
The 7 of Fire often indicates a need to stand up for one's self, defend some turf, draw a line in the sand, declare a firm No to whatever nonsense has been endured. Today, however, may find you helping someone else. Perhaps taking a stand for them as they aren't able to. I'm not talking about coddling someone along or doing everything for them. (This will be where you'll want to take your own stand.) Standing by and speaking up at the right moment, offering moral support, and encouraging words might the be only thing needed.

So.

Do what you can to be present for a friend in need. Or a stranger. You might not right all the wrongs in the world, but at least you'll help someone through a difficult moment. And that makes the world smile.
