The Strength Tarot Card – 8 – I have the power to change

The Strength Tarot Card DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism.

  • The Strength Tarot Card shows a woman in a white robe. She holds the jaws of a  fully grown lion. She gently caresses its forehead and jaws. Even though it is known for its ferociousness and wildness the woman seems to have dominion over it. She gracefully controls the lion. She is calm. That is representative of being in control and disciplined especially in times of great dangers. She is able to tame the lion through compassion, love, patience, and cunning. There is no effort involved. The fact that she is also holding the jaws of a lion also shows that she has courage. The woman wears a white robe, showing her purity of spirit. The belt and crown of yellow flowers and roses represent the most beautiful expression of nature. Above the woman’s head, there is a symbol of infinity and unlimited potential. So, she has the ability to manifest what she desires with her newfound power. The lion symbolizes raw emotions and is related to our consciousness on the instinctive level. Also, the lion is a symbol of courage, passion, and desire which are part of the human feelings that are necessary for survival. But if these feelings are not controlled that can lead to our destruction. The woman represents our higher spiritual energy. She has managed to gain control over the intrinsic urges. The Strength Tarot Card illustrates that the feminine powers of gentleness and self-control can tame our animal nature. The blue background over the mountains shows stability and the kind of calmness that comes with being stable.
  • Numerology: The Strength Tarot Card is numbered Eigh, the number of infinity because of its shape. It is a number that reminds you that everything comes full circle. Eight is associated with abundance and expansion, stability, and securing your foundation. It is also a number of harvest times.
  • Wikipedia: According to Eden Gray, the lemniscate above her represents enlightenment and spiritual powers, whereas the lion represents animal passions and earthly cravings.

Is the Strength tarot card good and what does it represent?

The world Strength card meaning depends on is the card upright or reversed and what is its position towards other cards.

What does The Strength card mean – upright?

The Strength Tarot Card upright represents strength, courage, persuasion, and patience. It tells you that you have the power and strength to overcome any obstacle. However, while the Chariot represents external power, the Strength tarot card encourages you to use your inner strength. You will need to act with grace and sensitivity, rather than using force. The card shows that you have inner strength and fortitude during moments of danger. You have the ability to remain calm, positive, and strong even when your life is going through a struggle. It also shows that you are a compassionate person and you always have time for other people even if it’s at your own expense. Tarot card Strength signifies that you can obtain true control of a situation, and not simply the power to forcefully impose your will. You’re confident and do not have problems being yourself and speaking up. Keep behaving this way and you will be successful in anything you want to accomplish.

What does The Strength card mean – reversed?

“Reversed tarot card” is a card that appears to be upside down from your angle of vision. A reversed Tarot card Strength in a reading can indicate that you are showing explosive behavior. Or, that you can easily become furious. Also, it indicates that you are (or about to) experience intense anger or fear in your life. So, the card is a reminder that you need to learn how to channel your raw emotions. Otherwise, you may act without thinking and you’ll regret it later. The reversed Strength card can also signify that you are lacking the inner strength that this card represents. Stop comparing yourself to others, stop complaining and focus on your own journey. Get back on your feet, and remember that you have the inner strength to overcome any obstacle. The reversed Strength tarot card can also indicate that you may have forgotten all that spark of joy, happiness, and fulfillment that you felt when you were doing things with passion and love. As a result, happiness is fading away.

Questions and wishes for tarot cards

What does The Strength card mean – Love?

If you have a question or a wish for Tarot cards about love: The Strength tarot card in a love context usually appears when you are having relationship trouble, either with family, a friend, or your partner. The Strength Tarot Card here represents your ability to accept others as they are, practice patience, and demonstrate the strength of love. The card advises you to find ways to open your heart even more. Strength is generally a good indicator that you are a strong couple, close and united. You could be even stronger if you treat your partner with patience and gentleness, rather than allowing your anger to take control. If you are single the card indicates that now is a time to meet someone as your confidence will be shining through. It can indicate a relationship coming up with someone who has a bit of a wild side. If you do want to tame them,  don’t try to dominate them.

Reversed:   if you are single it can indicate that lack of impulse control or unresolved self-esteem issues may be leading you to choose the wrong partners. You need to resolve these issues and summon your inner strength and believe that you deserve better. If you are in a relationship, it can indicate that while your relationship is strong, low self-esteem may be leaving you feeling unworthy. This in turn may lead you to act impulsively. Don’t let your anxiety or fear create problems. Also, the card may indicate that some forms of insecurity make it difficult for you and your partner to be more independent and pursue your own interests. A reversed Strength tarot love meaning can also indicate that force and power are becoming more apparent themes in your relationship. One partner may be becoming more domineering, instead of empathic and understanding.

The Strength Tarot Card and Money

  • If you have a question or a wish for tarot cards about money and Career: The card in a financial or work reading is an indicator of success. You have all of the ingredients you need to create the recipe for success for yourself. You are ready to take on a challenge and that you will persevere. Just stay consistent and hold your ground and results will come. Show that you’re confident and in control. Stay consistent and be of service to others. If you could harness your animalistic instincts; your anger, your drive, and your passion, you can take big steps in your career. So long as you continue to exercise control, you should be fine.
  • Reversed: The Strength Tarot reversed is similar to the upright meaning. You need to be brave and have self-belief to get ahead in your career.  You have everything you need in order to find success, except a healthy dose of confidence and belief in yourself. Fear of failure can be paralyzing if you allow it to be. Let go of the self-doubt, it doesn’t serve you.  Avoid compulsive spending now, as it can do more damage to your financial situation than usual. Alternatively this card can also suggest hesitancy about spending your money on things that can be helpful to you now, even if you may have an abundance of funds.

Also, this card often shows up in a reading when you are feeling physically sick, tired, or stressed. It can represent overcoming an illness or beginning to get your strength back. The Strength Tarot Card in a health context tells you to be conscious of your instinctual urges and gut reactions. It is completely human that you’re feeling sad, angry, or ashamed. The card advises you don’t let these emotions guide you. Tame your animal instincts, regain the power within yourself. Above all approach your situation with compassion and love. You know that you have the qualities to overcome these. Listen to your intuition. And do not be guided by negative emotions.
  • Reversed: In a health context, The Strength Tarot Card is still an indicator of good health.
