My Tarot Card?

XI - Strength

Astrological Correspondence: Leo

Keywords: inner strength, vision, self control

Description: The Strength card, depicting a gracious queen-like figure and a wild lion, shows that real strength has to be combined with graciousness and gentleness to become a force. It symbolizes inner strength, determination to overcome obstacles, self-knowledge and self-discipline, as only when we know ourselves and act in a responsible manner will we be able to deal with challenging situations and overcome difficulties successfully. Yet this card does not only represent physical strength, moral and emotional strength are included in the meaning. Patience, compassion, dealing with frustration, accepting of others, tolerating imperfection (in oneself and in others), all leads to being a complete person. The negative qualities of Strength include misuse of power, aggressiveness, and intolerance.
