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.
