You may think of yourself as a quiet, mild-mannered person, but deep inside you is the no-nonsense authority of the King of Swords, and now it’s time to unleash it. You’ve found yourself in a position where disorganized and/or untrustworthy people are causing you grief. So kick ass and take names! Lay down the law. Let them know you’re in charge. Maintain the unemotional, even cold, demeanor of the King of Swords and stick to the hard facts. Be clear and firm in your words. Don’t be afraid to take a stand - you’re in the right. Depending on what kind of issue is involved, it might be a good idea to hire a lawyer, accountant or other relevant expert to come in and back you up. There is much shady confusion on your adversary’s side and it’ll help to have another sharp, focused mind helping you to cut through the crap. Victory this time will be won through the power of intellect, not feelings.
