Career Crossroads

I'm feeling at a career crossroads right now as it feels like I'm just feeding a big corporate beast and while I like my paycheck, the work is soul sucking.  MetroHealth has a job open that is perfect for me, but I know the pay would be a lot less than I make.  I can't afford to take a huge pay cut, even though that work would satisfy my soul.  I decided to throw the question out to the universe.

1.  What does the Universe need to know?
Being in a position where I can help my community would bring my work in line with my values.  The Ten of Cups is all about healthy relationships and about community.  I spend 40 hours a week right now in service to capitalism and I'm bored stiff and I feel like my energy is wasted as I help a huge, bloated corporation that makes frankenfood.  I feel like the company I work for does more harm than good as it cranks out food that makes people sick and does not contribute to wellness.  I want to be part of a community and I want to live a life of service to others.  However, I also have to pay my bills and I can't afford a huge pay cut.

2.  A new perspective to consider
This is a confusing card because it is about intuition and creativity and I'm not sure how this is a new perspective.  The queen of cups is about trusting your intuition and reading signs from relationships and from my heart.  My heart is telling me to apply to this job and see what happens, but my brain and logic are telling me that there is now way that I can afford it.  Maybe this card is telling me to take a leap of faith and see what happens.  Maybe they will come close to what I'm making.

3.  Action to take
This card is also confusing as it is about friendships and relationships and doesn't seem to have anything to do with my career situation.  Maybe this card is telling me to build friendships and relationships and not worry so much about my job.  

This is one of those readings that is not making sense at first glance.  It is all about emotions, but there is no practical advice.  What I did find interesting about this reading is that it is all cups.  Not sure what that means.
