Strength tarot card

Card 1 - Strength

In this tarot card, you will see a woman who calmly holds the jaws of a fully grown lion. Despite the fact that the lion looks menacing and strong, the woman seems to have dominion over it. What is captivating is how gracefully she controls the lion. She is calm and collected, which is representative for being in control and disciplined especially in times of great adversities. The fact that she is also holding the jaws of a lion also shows that she has courage. Her control of the lion without being too rough shows love and compassion. The blue background over the mountains shows stability and the kind of calmness that comes with being stable.  The lion is a symbol of courage, passion and desire which are very much part of the human feelings that are necessary for survival. But if these feelings are not put in check can lead to our eventual destruction.

Eight of Cups tarot card

Card 2 - Eight of Cups

In the Eight of Cups, we are confronted with the moment of transition. We see a cloaked figure taking off to a barren land leaving behind eight golden cups. He is tired of what those cups that he has spent so much time collecting, and is now setting out to seeking a higher purpose. It may be a result of a boredom or unhappiness that comes with realizing that whatever they have been looking for in life isn t as pleasurable or as satisfying as they once assumed it would be. The person undertaking this journey might also signify be seeking excitement in the unknown. The mountainous barren lands that he sets off to can also be symbols of facing new challenges. Their stark emptiness seem to indicate that they are waiting for one to come and shape the. The journey that is taken can be done in the guise of trying out new things that have the potential to help one grow both mentally as well as spiritually.  It also shows the willingness to detach oneself from others so that one can work on self-improvement, self-understanding and growth.

Eight of Cups combinations
This is quite a self-explanatory card to work with, just look to the preceding card to see what the seeker is walking away from, particularly if working with a simple line, or free flow spread. Ideally, we’d like to see a positive card following to show a smooth transition to something more favourable. If a negative card follows then the seeker could make the situation worse and it’s worth reconsidering options at this time. For example…
