Daily Draw: Hanson-Roberts Tarot ~ 5 of Swords

This card speaks of arrogance in victory but a premature attitude because it is after all only a 5, there are 14 stages of growth to work through in this suit. Most of life's battles are on-going, lording over someone after a minor skirmish is just asking for more trouble.

The troublesome part is we can see this trait in others and miss it in ourselves. I'm reminded by this card to be mindful in victory, the enemies of yesterday are our neighbors and partners of tomorrow.

"Self-love is often more arrogant than blind; it does not hide our faults from ourselves, but persuades us that they escape the notice of others." ~ Samuel Johnson 1709-1784
