Finding Strength In Vulnerability!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Strength (also known as Force) card, representing: Courage, patience, vulnerability and gentleness.
This is one of my favorite cards of the deck, because it represents a journey of getting to know oneself on the deepest of levels. Strength is the story of the Maiden and the Lion. Once upon a time…a maiden encountered a great beast—a lion. She was terrified! Should she run away? Find someone to cage or even kill the beast? Alas, our maiden was willing to believe that she could befriend the foe. So, with kindness, mercy and patience, she got to know the beast, and fell in love with him!
The maiden represents that innocent part of ourselves willing to believe in all possibilities. The Lion represents our desire and passion, the part of us that wants to be wild, crazy and free! At the same time, it’s also the aspect of self that may make us feel out of control, or at the very least uncomfortable. This path offers strength and courage as you meet your deepest fears, and by doing so, live-changing transformation will come!
So, this week I encourage you to explore your relationship with passion and desire. This is a heart-based journey, a journey of knowing and, most importantly loving yourself, your inner beast—warts and all! It’s not about being perfect. It’s a journey of being real.
Know that great strength come is being vulnerable. When in doubt, don’t force anything. Have patience and let Divine Right Timing will be your guide!
Wishing you a Brave and Courageous Week!
