"Literally, the Strength card represents strength, courage and determination – trusting your own abilities. It also represents compassion. It is intellect and reason coupled with enthusiasm and energy. You can deal with whatever life throws at you. Overcoming an obstacle. Seizing control of your destiny.
It is a time for being constructive, not destructive. It is a time for discipline and listening to your inner voice for direction. Understanding the consequences to your actions. It can also speak of the awareness of temptations and the ability to overcome them.
Reversed - Too emotional. Not thinking situations through. Loss of courage. Abandoning your values. Being driven by impulses. Unjustified use of strength. Resorting to intimidation in an effort to manipulate others. Tyranny. Lack of faith. Abuse of power. Succumbing to temptation." - bewitchingways.com
