TEN OF SWORDS
THE SWORD OF INJUSTICE:
Salome dances the Dance of the Seven Veils. The king is beside Himself with desire for his step-daughter and grants her a boon, any wish that she requests of him for doing this dance for him. His wicked queen, Herodias, quietly suggests to her daughter that she ask for the head of John the Baptist After much arguing, the boon is granted and Salome, receiving the head of prophet, recedes into madness.
VALUE OF THE CARD:
Injustice is more plentiful than justice. We must transform pain into wisdom to survive living in a wicked world. It is often the best of men who suffer the worst fate. There is little reward for the holy and the wise. To be a prophet is* not profitable. Never place yourself or your fate in the hands of a woman. A treacherous woman. Beware of prostitutes. An evil woman.
