This represents that every battle is essentially a battle within oneself. They bear the emblem of the king, the lion, on their shields and their attire is lavish and vibrant, fitting for royal knights. The predominant color of the card is red, the color of aggression and warfare.
The meaning of the Battle Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You have become embroiled in your own aggressions. You believe that you have found your enemy in the external world and are fiercely fighting against them, without realizing that you are actually battling yourself. At this moment, you are your own worst adversary. The harder you try to win, the more power you lose and ultimately, you only end up destroying yourself.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
Your task is to gain a space that you can claim as your own. No one will give it to you willingly. It's a case of an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Whether you win or lose, you can only learn something if you have the courage to fight and confront your opponent.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
You have learned that the enemy appearing in the outside world is always only a reflection of your own role personalities, and thus it forms a part of you. However, having this knowledge should not prevent a necessary fight. This gives you the freedom to decide whether you want to fight or not. You have made a decision and are capable of not overestimating your warrior's efforts at the end of your journey.
