The Strength Tarot card calls you to remember your personal power. We can’t always control external circumstances (the lion), but we are always in control of the thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors we choose to engage in.
Just like the woman in the picture remains calm and serene; we also have the choice to remain calm in the face of uncertainty.
Trying to force solutions or control others and external circumstances heightens anxiety, stress, and frustration. It can be easy when circumstances are challenging to throw in the towel or use these perceived challenges as an excuse, but that ultimately leads to a lack of personal power.
Remember your ability to make choices at any given moment and learn to make the ones that empower you rather than enslave you to your circumstances. You cannot control what others do or change them or their true nature. The only one you control is you, so do it well.
