Today’s Faerie Tarot card is Strength, number eight of the Major Arcana. The Major Arcana cards are each symbolic of a stage in the journey of mankind toward enlightenment. It begins with The Fool, number zero, representing the naivety and innocence of a new soul just setting forth on its spiritual journey, and ends with The World, number twenty-one, which represents victory, honor, fulfilled desires, perfection, and wisdom. The Strength card represents our ability to rise above the primary and baser instincts experienced by our animal self, rising above to the potential of divine thoughts and actions.
When this card appears, it is signaling that you have the courage and strength to be triumphant in all situations at this time. The central theme of this card is courage, fortitude, self control, faith in oneself, ambition, energy, achievements, strong passion, fidelity, sincerity, and intense love. It can also indicate that your inner strength has allowed you to endure a situation which was particularly challenging and that you are coming out of it with your head held high. This image shows a lioness, the beast having been tamed by the magick of this sublime faerie. Remember that you are infinitely stronger than you believe and that the Gods, guides, and angels have had your back all along. Only now can you begin to see yourself in this new and victorious way. Take time to look back at what you have endured and embrace the lessons contained in those experiences.
Today, may you be supported by the infinite Strength of the Divine which lies within you!
