At A Glance

Positive: Courage, compassion, influence

Negative: Self-doubt, raw emotion, low energy


Strength is numbered 8 in the Major Arcana.

Strength shows a woman taming a lion. The lion represents raw emotion and power, while the woman represents compassion and influence and has succeeded in taming such animal instincts.

The woman is wearing a white robe which signifies her purity, and there is a symbol of infinity over her head showing her potential for wisdom and strength of will.

It can be said to be a delicate balance as a slip might cause the woman to be overpowered by the lion instead.
