Clow Cards: The Sweet


Not easy, but you may need to force that smile and be sweet for a while. You may be feeling less than sweetness inside, but circumstances may dictate that you need to tone down your true emotions and not let them loose inappropriately. There will be a time to let rip, but now is not that time. Again, patience is asked for. Try not to force issues- it only causes a 2 steps forward/2 steps backward issue.

This may show you are trying to sugar-coat over an issue that needs to be addressed. If reversed, it is indicating you may be being too nice about something which needs to be grabbed at with honesty & bluntness. No need to rub salt in a wound, but some salt might be needed.

Meanings inspired from the anime

The Sweet is a light-hearted card who likes to turn objects into sweets and make any kind of food sweet/sweeter. In the anime, she makes cakes turn unbearably sweet. This could symbolize the fact that (as we say in French) ''too much is the same as not enough''. Also, it can be a reminder that overindulging or exaggerating often has its lot of consequences.

The Sweet is under the power of the Light, the Sun and is related to Western magic.
