PATIENCE

 

High up in the branches, Patience keeps a silent vigil. They hold a horn in their hand, ready to alert others if necessary. From their perch they can see everything clearly, and will not be fooled by the shadows of the dense forest. They are in a sort of trans, suspended in time. When true danger come, they will be ready to sound their horn.

 

Possible meanings : Waiting, gaging the situation before acting. Not yielding to the first impulse, the first emotion. Not taking the first, most obvious or easier choice. Resisting the urge to want every thing immediately, trying to understand your own motives. A complex situation that needs some contemplating.
