This card teaches you to connect with your inner Strength to find compassion for all beings, even yourself. The work of connecting to yourself may feel like a Herculean task. Celebrate your victories and be kind to yourself when you fall. Healing is not linear, and this card reminds you how strong it is to choose yourself.
When reversed, Strength reminds you to listen to your deep emotions. When you cut off part of yourself or ignore your emotional needs, they come out sideways. By acknowledging your deep inner feelings, they suddenly lose their power. Sit with what comes up, and allow it to pass or reveal something. Being in touch with your inner landscape is true strength.
