The picture shows a woman taming a lion.
It suggests the energy of the unconscious released and calmed by the direction of conscious understanding. The search inwards cannot be accomplished by the ego. We need to confront feelings and desires long hidden from our conscious thoughts. The mysteries can be brought out because we have found the strength to face them. The lion signifies all the feelings, fears, desires and confusions suppressed by the ego in its attempt to control life.
This card indicates the ability to face life, some difficult problem or time of change, with hope and eagerness. A person strong from within, experiencing life passionately but peacefully, without being carried away by those passions. The finding of the inner strength to continue with difficult situations despite fear and emotional strain.
Strength reversed, on the other hand, indicates weakness, inability to face life, overwhelmed and pessimistic outlook to life.
