General Aspects:

Patriarchal, conquerors, man-made laws, speaking, discipline, duality, antithesis


Pictured in the Trump of STRENGTH, a woman is astride a savage lion. From behind she daintily holds hope his mighty jaws with her gloved hands. Though she is not as strong as the lion, her spirit overcomes the brute force of the animal. The lion represents force and vitality now tamed to creative energy by feminine intuition. Her creativity and his strength from the infinity symbol which crowns her head, embodying this completion of the duality of masculine and feminine aspects.

Interpreted use:

You are in control of your creative lion. Tame it and have an ally.

Reversed (card received upside down):

This card, when drawn by a man, could imply fear and distrust of the anima or yin. IF drawn by a woman, this card indicates the need to trust one's inner strength, not doubt it.
