To have the vision to see that what you do today and the movements you make creates your tomorrows.  Look into the horizon to see what to focus on, and where to put your attention, move slowly and deliberately.   The Giraffe is always aware of danger that may not be visible.  Just as Giraffe, you too must learn discernment in your movements, careful to avoid danger and ambush by those who may want to bring you down.  Use your focus to strengthen your natural intuition and instincts about choosing the twists and turns on your path.  Learn to keep watch at all times to protect your interests and the interests of those in your inner circle.
