In LosArcanos.com we are creating a new Tarot deck, with exclusive footage created to transmit the feminine consciousness and energy of the New Age, that will soon see on our site as well try that may get printed
We usually think of the strenght in physical terms (big arms, powerful legs), but there is also strenght inside. The inner strenght comes from an exercise of the core of the heart. It is perseverance, courage, resolution and composure, qualities that help us endure when times are difficult. In the past, it was commonly said that a person with strenght inside was chartered; he or she could be counted in the darkest moments. Card 8 represents this calm determination energy. The strenght is not a flashy card, but is solid and reliable.
Card 8 also represents patience and compassion. Getting angry is easy when events become bitter, but calmly dealing with frustration requires a lot of strenght. The same happens when accepting others and forgiving mistakes. We need strenght to mold situations smoothly. The Chariot controls through dominance and authority. Card 8 is more subtle, even loving. Notice how the Lion (in itself a symbol of strenght) is being guided and tamed by the gentle hands of the woman.
This Arcane is related to the internal control that we humans have, the strenght of will, the self-mastery, the inner strength, the good use of the energy generated by our body and mind. Also with the power of seduction, mastery, heroism and the strenght of determination. Creative power is linked to a great effort to draw that positive energy from within.
This card implies that you must have the dominant character, in case of difficult situations. It reveals that patience is the best ally of character's courage, only with tolerance can one deal with any adversity. The strenght symbolizes patience, love, and the strenght itself.
