“He who conquers others is strong. He who conquers himself is mighty” – Lao Tzu

This card is  Devil Card, light. It reminds us that corruption exists. As does stress, irritability, rudeness, self-involvement, hubris, and a host of other social ills. This card reminds us of the pin-pricks to the heart that all this stressed-out ill temper can cause. The advice is two-fold. First, don’t let it get to you too much. There will be times when people get their knickers in a giant twist and damage your calm. The second part of this is how you react to your own twisted knickers. It is important to know the difference between assertive (standing up for yourself in a rational way) and aggressive. When you are cranky or other people are being poopyheads, be assertive. Aggressive only makes things worse. At the very least try not to be too much of a jerk, and we’ll all get along.
