What does the Strength card mean in a Reading?
The Strength tarot card has a two-fold meaning. On the one hand, the meaning of the Strength card can be that of a period where strength is granted and an ease of life is obtained. On the other hand, when the Strength card shows up in a tarot reading, it could mean that there is a need to find strength within yourself.
One of the most powerful lessons that can be learned from the Strength card is that sometimes the best
option is also the most gentle. In this card, you see a maiden giving affection to a fierce lion. This vicious
and wild beast is tamed by her care and compassion. What you see in this card is that the troubles of life,
the soul, and physical ailments are sometimes best controlled with care and affection rather than the whip
or force. When you tame a lion with a whip, they learn to fear you, not to care for you. As soon as the whip
is set aside, the beast is let loose once more. But if you tame the beast with calm,control and understanding, then the changes within this seemingly uncontrollable wild animal are more real and more permanent.
How do you apply this to your life? The Strength card, as mentioned above, can either represent that the
tides are changing for you or that you need to discover a new way to approach a situation in order to tame the beast.
Are you having trouble with a child or spouse? What methods have you used in the past that aren’t working? Sometimes the best path is also the easiest. Relax, breathe, and embrace the challenge. It is not hard to make lemonade, but you see the lemons for what they are. If you scorn and turn your nose up at the challenges of life, playing the victim, then you will suffer the sour taste or be devoured by the beast.
This summary provides a few key recommendations if you find the Strength card appearing in your One
Card Tarot Reading. Meditate on what this card means based on the situation you are facing. The Strength card is a good card to see as it is mostly positive but it is dependent on your ability to find strength
This is an optimistic card and happy one to get. Choose wisely and you’ll be rewarded. If you can gain a new perspective on your situation and find the change within yourself, you will reap the rewards of a greater strength and understanding for your future.
