I have pulled the Maiden of Swords from the Arthurian Tarot.
Depicted is Dindraine, who weaves a sword belt with her own hear and embroiders the scabbard of a sword which is meant as a sword of justice. The sword belt is a belt of mercy. The bearer of the sword will be girdled with mercy and humility.
It is mercy my eyes and ears are closed for. Probably most of all, mercy for myself, because that is where it all starts.
