Today\’s card is Strength. As usual, we\’ll note Waite\’s understanding of the card. Waite says: Power, energy, action, courage, magnanimity. Reversed – despotism, abuse of power, weakness, discord.
We would go along with all of those, but again, let\’s look at the symbolism of the card. A graceful woman with the infinity sign above her head, closing the jaws of a lion using calmness and graceful strength alone.
If you draw this card in a spread, are you being strong, or is strength somehow being used against you? Again, looking at the card, it appears that it\’s a graceful strength, and the strength of honesty and integrity. Are your actions holding someone else to account? Are you in need of showing strength in a situation.
Always remember that cards have duality, and that they also have a reversed meaning. If your cards are all upright when being dealt in the first place, should the card have a reversed meaning? Look to the cards around it for context.
