Five of Swords, Vampyres Tarot
Do not punish the already lying.
Consider whether you might be about to act "over powering in a situation when we should be taking a more selfless approach".
Beware of "trying too hard to control a situation by [intellectual] force".
Mercury retrograde is upon us!
"Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?"
Is it controlling?
Is it out of fear of losing control?
Is it because 'you're right'?
It's neither 'them' nor the 'situation' "sucking your energy", it's your thoughts about it (being different and/or like you want it to be).
