Featured Card of the Day – 5 of Swords – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com


Self-interest, defeat, conflict

Artist Interpretation

The monster has won a game of sword fighting. He now possesses all five swords and stands alone as the little bugs leave the beach. He wonders now if perhaps he may have played too competitively and aggressively.

Card Meaning

You’ve won, but you pushed too hard, hurt people you care about, and now you stand alone in your victory. Did the ends really justify the means? Was it really all worth it? Or did the desire to win outweigh your compassion and better emotions? Your aggression, self-interest and recent lack of empathy will have repercussions, and though you won this battle, you may end up losing the war.
