Prince of Swords balancing card

I want to comment on this card yet can't find any words. Maybe - what balances it? I have been in/near many an over-heated arguement in my time, and I'm the one who brings calm, keeps them apart, gets people to settle down, get them to see that the other person has a point of view too. I am never in the arguements - so your advice about not being 'self protecting" doesn't seem to apply.

But now that I think a moment - maybe I am being self protecting in my zeal to bring peace to disagreements. (Not all, mind you, but some of the ones that have evolved when I've been present.) Maybe that's my way of keeping safe; help get others to lessen their emotional envolvement so that rational thought can surface. I never thought of that before. --

Well - thinking about this card has brought me a new way of looking at things. At how I handle high emotion.

Hi Ann,
The balancing card for the Prince of Swords would be the Prince of Cups, the knight in shining armor. A hero of the moment but he's completely encased by his armor, the really impenetrable emotionally reflective guy.What you get with him is what you want to see... the Prince of Swords may be in your face but at least what you see is what you get with him. With MAAT Tarot you will always forced to observe the 'good' in the 'evil' as well as the 'evil' in the 'good'.

I like your take on this as one who choses to mediate...wonder where your natal moon is and how that applies.
