A Personal Journey Through the Tarot: Strength
There are many styles of strength. In the West we equate strength to brute force so let us compare concrete to grass. It would be easy to assume that concrete is the stronger of the two but when a sidewalk is considered we can see how grass can cleave concrete given time. What is the strength of the grass? Patience, perseverance, tenacity, flexibility and growth are just some of the attributes that lend strength to grass. Understanding that strength reveals itself in all sorts of different ways may help in acknowledging and honouring where your strength lies.
Today I draw Strength and reflect upon where my power is. Am I assuming my strength is a weakness so not relying on it? Have I become inflexible in my stance and lost my strength? Do I recognize the strength in others when it displays differently from my own?
