|Birds + Bear + Snake|
Birds: "Oh, the Birds, they mean sorrow and troubles, but have no fear, it won't last long."
Bear: "With the Bear beware to think before you speak, there is no lack of envious people."
Snake: "Whether near or far, the Snake is never gladly seen, as sooner or later she indicates betrayal."
If we just took the meanings from the verses, this might give us:
Worries about envy and betrayal because of something you said.
Brainstorming with a broader set of meanings adds to that:
Forceful talk leads to betrayal.
Big worries about another woman.
Motherly concerns about women troubles.
Nutritional conversation takes time.
Phone call with your boss about delays and detours.
Certainly, there seems advice here to watch our language. Whether we're talking to our mother or our boss (yep, the Bear is one of those cards that can go both ways), it's probably quite good advice to be careful of both what we say and how we say it.
I'm unlikely to be speaking with any higher-ups today. More likely is that I'll talk with my mum, after Wednesday's gynecological intervention. With regards to that, the Snake could suggest things taking a while to settle back to normal, which is to be expected, but still not anything to be happy about.
I am grateful for time to recover, and support in doing so.
