To me, the cards suggest that strength and fulfilment lie first in the surrender to folly, and then in the conscientious compromise of your steadfast principles. This is not a disavowal of character, but a repudiation of vanity. The suggestion I feel is that allegiance to constraints not originating from your instinctive, intuitive wellspring of inspiration and motivation are misguided at best, fear-born at worst. Fear can never be trusted. It is illusory. Balance lies between freedom and responsibility, between magic and truth.
