The Kiss — The Courage To Face Something Unpleasant And Overcome Your Fears
The Strength’s Jewels
Timing: The timing of Strength is within one month after the card is pulled.
Natal Birth Chart: Strength is connected to the fifth house of the natal birth chart and represents everything that you love to do to stay happy and active. After all, this is the house of fun, which represents many things such as: pleasure, happiness, risk taking, romance, dating, love, love affairs, sexual relationships, entertainment, gambling, hobbies, talents, sports, and your creativity.
Life Lessons: Always remember, the Major Arcana represents major life lessons, so if Strength appears in your reading, you know it is significant. Strength represents that you mustered the courage and faith to overcome your most stubborn obstacle of fear, and to protect yourself by controlling your environment so it does not control you.
Upright: Strength is also a message that you need to have the courage to face something unpleasant, or there is a challenge ahead that you are not looking forward too. Remember that Strength represents your readiness to face this challenge, because your inner strength is currently stronger than your outer strength.
Reverse: When Strength comes out in the reversed position it signifies that you want to feed the lion — your inner beast; your urges and desires that need to be feed so that you feel nurtured. You may have already fallen into your beastly desires: partying too much, drinking, smoking, not getting enough sleep, eating too much, or spending a lot of money.
Love And Romance: When Strength comes out in the upright position it heralds a time when you are going after a relationship, and everything is moving at a fast pace. If you are in a relationship, you are spending the time to make it work. If you started a new friendship, it may bloom into a committed long term relationship that leads to engagement and marriage.
Upright: Remember the fifth house represents good karma. The fifth house rules relationships: your love life, taking risks with dating, romance, love affairs, friendships, dating, sexual encounters, and the type of person that you are attracted to and desire.
Reverse: When Strength comes out in the reversed position, it heralds a time when a relationship may end because you are not willing to spend the time to repair it. You may discover that your feelings for your mate have vanished or your mate’s feelings for you have vanished; either way, one of you wants to move on.
Reverse: The reversed position also represents that you or your partner may have taken a risk and engaged in an affair. The relationship has taken a turn for the worse, the secret is out, karma is hovering around you; everything connected to your relationship is really strained and hanging by a thread.
Work, Career And Money: When Strength comes out in the upright position, it signifies that you may want to negotiate for a raise or promotion because you feel that you have shown that you have the right skills to get the job done, and you know that you are worth the risk.
Upright: The upright position of Strength also represents that you may have interviewed for a new position at another company. You feel that you have the right skills for the role, and the timing is very good. You finally feel that you are in the right place at the right time.
Upright: The upright position of Strength also signifies that you may be thinking about starting your own business, and you are ready to move forward to make your dreams come true.
Reverse: When Strength comes out in the reversed position it signifies that that there are problems or issues connected to your career. The promotion or raise that you were counting on is not going to happen, or is delayed.
Reverse: The reversed position of strength could indicate that you have interviewed for a new job because you are unhappy in your current work position.
Reverse: The reversed position of Strength also signifies that the timing is not right to start your own business, and that your dream to move forward is delayed or will not happen.
Travel And Moving: When Strength comes out in the upright position it heralds a time when you want to travel. Your desire is to travel a long distance to visit and explore another country, something that you always wanted to do. The desire of this long distance travel is finally taking fruition and will happen.
Reverse: When Strength comes out in the reversed position, the timing is not good to make the trip. It may be delayed or may not happen at all.
Upright: You want to move into your dream home, and you feel that you are very close to achieving this dream since everything is starting to fall into place.
Reverse: You want to move into your dream home, but your financial position will not allow you to leap forward. Your attempt to acquire a needed loan may have been rejected by the bank; your dream has taken a turn for the worse. You feel like you will never be able to afford to move into your dream house.
