Exercise 14.4 - Knights
For each scenario, decide which Knight best reflects the situation. Then, give a few phrases that describe that Knight's warning message. You can check my suggestions, if you wish. Here's an example:
You've been working 12 hours-a-day for six months. There's so much to do. Knight of Pentacles: You're working too hard. You're too compulsive. You never play.
You feel depressed and weepy all the time. No one seems to care how you feel.
You've bragged that you know lots of important people, but you really don't. The stock market keeps going up. All your money is in a risk-free savings account. You're always yelling at the kids. Their constant fighting is driving you crazy. You told your new assistant that his work is hopelessly sloppy and incomplete. You think your partner is always flirting with others. You don't like it at all. Your son disobeyed you. You won't tolerate that! Your word is law in your house. You refuse to consider retiring even though your spouse wants to discuss it.

Remove the four Pages from the deck, and place them face down in front of you. Mix them together, then turn over one card.

Is something holding you back? If nothing comes to mind, watch for an inspiration in the next few days.
