Reversed Cards: Have you ever just taken something from someone because you could? Maybe you thought you were just borrowing their idea, dulling their light, or putting it out there where it could do some good. But in reality you knew if you took action, you would get the glory. The human ego is very good at convincing us that all things that benefit us are good. The shadow aspect of this card lets you know that you acted with intention. You knew the consequences and you were thrilled by them. Someone elses loss was your gain and you loved it.
