ineptitude that we lose a sense of objectivity. But this card tells us that our fears are a child of our own anxiety, are not founded in the reality of actionable worry, that we are only a prisoner to our self-doubt, and these are chains we can break.
"If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles." - Sun Tzu
The power we have, that we all inherently possess, is one of self-discovery. By recognizing there is a journey in which we are eternally a part, we can begin to assess our fears through the lens of discovery. We can see each fear in the light of a new perspective... that of traveling through a phase, and embrace the lessons which result.
Once we pluck from our hearts the false reality our fears create, we can use that energy to strengthen our own resolve, to build up our confidence, self-worth, and rejoice in change and evolution. Fear breeds shadows. But where there are shadows, there is also light. And light, my friends, breeds hope.
