The Strength Card


If I had to define magic in reference to today’s powerful card using only two keywords, they would be “mind” and “will”  

The “mind”, the aspect of ourselves where self-realisation and freewill are born, and the “will”, the consequence of thought. The part of ourselves that we battle to discipline and control over the course of our lifetime.  

If you’ve battled with any form of addiction or substance abuse, alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, social media etc. Then you’ve witnessed this unsavoury and difficult imposter first-hand, the battle of the higher part of ourselves that says “stop, you’re going to get in terrible trouble” and the more primordial side that says, “sod it, try again tomorrow, anyway life’s too short, enjoy yourself.” 

When the Strength card lands on the table, the characteristics of Leo comes to mind, as strong as a lion, fearless and determined. These are the sunny qualities you’re invited to embrace today.  

Like a conductor of a great orchestra, there are many ways to approach the musicians. You can shout out instructions, demand perfection, point out every improvement required, or you can work more cohesively and collectively, mindful to be more tolerant and patient, to find more effective ways to nurture and encourage the musicians, so playing the longer, but more effective game with better results! 

Rarely do we succeed with brute force, treating ourselves or others in such a way that if we’re not careful can be just as emotionally damaging as the issues we’re wishing to confront. We need to respect our challenges, face our contradictions with deeper understanding, taking the time to uncover their true nature, roots and source. There can be great strength found in gentleness, to compassionately approach the untamed aspects of ourselves with a genuine attempt to meet our inner conflicts on equal terms, to find greater unity, stability and balance.
