It will be very tempting to give back the insults in the same measure as they were given, but this would be a quick way to injure yourself and do your foes’ work for them. Instead, pull back and reassess the matter. Do you really need to physically be involved in this? Do you really need to take over the conflict and control the players involved? Or do you really need to step back, realize that the hill you are fighting over is washing away in the rain, and go find someplace dry to recover?

A luxurious white and gold deck of 80 hand painted and foil stamped cards that represents the stories, traditions, and heritages that humans create and pass forth in their journey to conquer the most eternal and timeless of enemies; the ephemerality and temporality of life. Inspired by odysseys and epics of old, the major arcana cards have been reimagined as a “hero’s journey” in place of the classic “fool’s journey”. The majority of the major arcana cards retain strong parallels to traditional Rider Waite-Smith counterparts, though a small number are completely new. Cards painted by Arthur Wang. Card meanings co-written by Arthur Wang and Mat Auryn. The Ephemere Tarot is ©TrueBlack, LLC.
