Symbolism in Strength tarot card

Strength tarot card is seen in the classic tale of the Beauty and the Beast.

Strength tarot card as beauty and the beast

The Strength Tarot card is the same story we see in the Beauty and the Beast. Time was about to run out, but when she loved the beast, they were on the infinite timeline. Belle and the Beast are the same being. When she finally loves the beast, not just is she connected to Creator of all (infinite timeline) she also sees the divinity in others. Previously she saw them as objects. Loving herself on a deep level dissolved the spell she was under. She could finally see people as people. She could see and sense the divinity in both herself and others.

This is why our ancestors went on the vision quest again and again. They did not want to be in a frozen emotional state. They knew even a rock has a consciousness. They knew this because they had spiritual practises that connected them back to Source and they experienced the quantum field of everything being alive. You can read more about this in my article called Norse Salvation. 

Strength tarot card and Astrology

Strength tarot card is ruled by Leo. Leo is ruled by the Sun. The Sun rules our will, our pride, our determination, our heart, health, and vitality. It is an intense masculine force. It also rules how others see us, public recognition, and self-esteem.

Strength as a symbol of Cosmic Mother, Hathor, the goddess of courage and love

Hathor inspires feelings of warmth, compassion, and care. Her presence as our cosmic mother reminds us of our Soul’s connection to the Divine. Hathor speaks of the nurturing and protective qualities even in the face of the unknown. Her presence provides reassurance and courage to the individual as they face their fears, doubts, and disbeliefs.  One of the most important journeys we can be on is the one when we face our dark emotions and release ourselves from it. This is the story of Beauty and Beast as I have written about above. This journey connects us closer to our Soul and the Creator of all. Hathor is the symbol of our Soul’s connection to the Divine. She is Divinity in feminine form, our Divine Mother. You can learn more about Hathor on Egyptian Museum Website here. 

Strength In The Vision Quest

Strength is when the Seeker meets a deep part of themselves, and they can finally love and accept themselves. This connection between their higher self and deepest and often oppressed self, connects them also to Source and they are on the infinite timeline.
