Stakeholders in this regard should bear this in mind; the readiness at all times to upgrade existing facilities to catch up with international standard should be a key priority. Apart from this, existing facilities should be constantly maintained and protected from been vandalized. We need balance and we need to accept our earthly needs. We need to embrace our ego (your ego must be your amigo) and never deny your ego what it needs. And what you need is to be fulfilled. The Devil in Tarot knows this and will pull you towards what it is you desire most. In symbolism it is suggested that the beast in the Rider Waite tarot deck is indeed Archangel Uriel disguised as the Devil, which ask the question how much we do deny our self vs how much abundance is handed down to us. Are we denying our self by being too modest? This is the case when the Devil shows up in the advice position in a spread. If the cards are advising you to become more devilish you must become more ambitious as the Universe wants to grant you more power. You are indeed someone who can handle power and do good with it.
