FIVE OF SWORDS

Keywords: Acceptance, action, conflict, change, sacrifice.

Squabble and Quarrel are always in conflict. After a battle, one wins the jewels, which she displays prominently on her sword. She's gotten what she wanted. Yet, she isn't as fulfilled as she thought she'd be, for the true event happening here is the battle of the ego. They will eventually come to realize that victory and pride are not worth the cost of friendship and respect.

Fight the urge to bite off more than you can chew. When a situation is too much to handle, the best option is to step back with your pride and integrity intact, and you'll rise above the situation. You'll move toward a positive outcome by accepting limitations, and will feel victorious by accepting defeat. There's no sense in carrying around resentment or the desire to seek revenge. Reflect on your motivations and the motivations of others. Reevaluate circumstances; there's always room for new directions.

Reversed: Intimidation. Maliciousness. False sense of victimization.
