Trouble is brewing this month and it's mostly due to volatile, shady characters in your environment. Wake up and smell the coffee because if you pay attention, you'll be able to spot these problematic people before they are able to do much harm. You'll want to be careful about the extermination process, however, because this type of person is very intelligent and is aware of just how to manipulate the stage so that they get what they want.
One characteristic that will make this person fairly easy to spot is his/her inclination to brag constantly about personal achievements, whether they are real or fabricated. This comes from an internal imbalance on their part which is further fueled by jealousy. Unfortunately, this person can employ cruel and even deceitful tactics to swing things in their favor, but only if they are left to their machinations.
It's best to avoid this person, or these type of people, altogether. Since that's not always entirely possible, if you need to push the situation toward a confrontation to call them out, be diplomatic. Your opponent is well prepared and is not afraid to take low blows so by using your diplomacy, you'll have the upperhand and can quell any disturbances before they become truly disruptive.
One piece of counsel, make sure to look in the mirror often, because sometimes this card can even represent the shadow version of ourselves. If we've become hardened and begin to use the sword of intellect in an ignoble way, better to ask ourselves why and address the issue head-on to resolve it. If we ignore this facet of ourselves, it can eventually lead to self-destruction so tread lightly. Be forgiving, but be ready to change; afterall, it's in your own self-interest.
