Tarot Helper: Strength

The Tarot is an ancient wisdom system that guides our actions to be more in tune with who we most deeply are.

The STRENGTH card shows a woman embracing a lion: the two are clearly in a friendly relationship, with neither one dominant, just peacefully (and respectfully!) co-existing in partnership.

Strength appears today to remind us to listen to our instincts: most of us keep our inner lion on a very short choke-chain, goading it into working, working, working when it really just wants to play and enjoy life. Read Women Who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes: it’s a wonderful handbook for recovering the wisdom and strength of our instinctual wild selves.

Found it. Give your Inner Lion the freedom your Inner Lion needs. Yes bring harmony to all parts of yourself. Respect all parts of yourself. Because you might find more harmony in your outer world when there is more harmony in your inner world.
