How to face your problems with gentle strength and confidence

Strength is a happy and lucky card. It says you will succeed if you face your problems courageously, confidently, and with gentle strength and perseverance.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot LondonIn the twentieth century, German artist Hermann Haindl created a Tarot Deck inspired by imagery from Egypt, Scandinavia, and the Middle East; in his deck, the Strength card shows a naked woman holding a boa constrictor. In the more traditional Rider Waite Tarot Deck, a woman in Medieval garb is petting a lion.

In both cards, the meaning is clear: strength and power are yours if you want them.

 

Strength is number eight in the Tarot’s Major Arcana, and eights stand for strength – be it mental, physical, emotional, romantic, financial, personal charisma, etc. When an eight shows up, it says that you are control, even if you don’t think you are – or if you don’t want to be.

The Strength card shows that nature, wild and primeval, can be tamed by subtle persuasion. It also represents your gentler side, the feminine half of your inner self.

So this card suggests strength not through brute force, but through more refined and delicate means, such as influence or coaxing.

The card may indicate a need for gentle self-discipline for yourself or someone close to you.

Perhaps you need to be reminded of your inner compassion, endurance, and ability to accept what’s happening in your life. Maybe you simply need to become calm as chaos swirls around you. After all, in the Rider Waite Deck, the woman’s expression is serene, even happy, though she’s standing beside the King of Beasts.

So be content with the knowledge that you have the strength and ability to overcome your life’s obstacles.

The Tarot is confident that you can!

Raise a glass to the Two of Cups

In the traditional Rider Waite Tarot deck, the Two of Cups card depicts a couple in medieval dress facing each other holding huge golden chalices, while a winged lion hovers above them.

In the whimsical Housewives Tarot, a smiling couple in 1950s-style clothes hold hands as each stands in a giant wine glass.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot LondonTwos in the Tarot typically involve balance, harmony, and partnerships. The suit of Cups represents emotions and feelings. So when this card appears, these issues will soon become important in your life – if they aren’t already.

The Two of Cups may herald a need for balance in your emotions. In the traditional deck, the couple are oblivious to the beast lurking above them, and they’re maintaining harmony in their relationship in the face of what might be a threat or, at best, a distraction. In the Housewives Tarot, the red liquid in the glasses could be wine, but the couple appear calm and happy, not irrational or overcome by drunkenness.

Are you expecting too much from a relationship? The Two of Cups may be telling you to accept the good parts without demanding the moon. And note that the pairing in question may not be a romantic one—it could be a business partnership, or a relationship with a parent, sibling, or child.

Regardless of the type of relationship, this card advocates for fairness, reason, and impartiality. It may also hint that a broken bond is about to be mended via forgiveness and by leaving behind past grievances, or that two opposite types will soon be brought together.

Bear in mind that the Two of Cups is one of the luckiest cards in the tarot for relationships, whether romantic, business or family. It’s about raising a glass to each other and to what lies ahead. If you can’t think of a partnership to which it applies, a new one may be just beyond the horizon. And although it might not be exciting, fiery, and passionate, it is likely to be grounded in respect, honour, and mutual sharing.

Ten of Pentacles – an excellent sign that you can achieve your goals

If you like cats, you’ll love the Cat People Tarot Deck. And if you fancy that Tarot deck, you’ll adore the Ten of Pentacles!

In the Cat People Deck, a plump and happy feline sits surrounded by her kittens, allowing a richly dressed woman to cuddle one. Together they stand on a hearth rug, and behind them, ten pentacles are exquisite stained-glass windows.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot LondonIn the traditional Rider Waite Tarot deck, ten Pentacles dot the scene of a happy and prosperous three-generation family enjoying their courtyard outside a small castle.

The suit of Pentacles (sometimes called the suit of Money) stands for finances, possessions, and the practical side of life. Tens represent completion, perfection, and order.

 

The Ten of Pentacles, then, symbolises financial stability, accomplishment, and comfort, as well as home, and family.

When this card appears in your reading, it has to do with abundance and a stable family. It may be telling you that a new enterprise is destined to succeed, or it may suggest that you need to be a better steward of your resources and your household.

This card may advise a conservative attitude, especially where money and family are concerned. Beware of dodgy investments, and caution family members against risky activities—especially when things around you are unstable. Sometimes it’s better to avoid gambles and stick with tradition.

The Ten of Pentacles also symbolises permanence and a secure future. The card may be telling you to take a long-term view of present problems. Think about what lies ahead—both for yourself and your loved ones—and don’t just live for today.

Overall, the Ten of Pentacles is an excellent sign that, despite any bumps in the road, if you stick to a stable plan and avoid foolish risks, you’ll accomplish your goals.

The card may herald an upgrade of your career, a better financial situation, and/or the solution of problems in your home life or relationships. Have faith that things will come to fruition, and be ready to share your success with others.

Moving forward with the Six of Swords

In a small boat, a standing man, a seated woman and a child, their backs turned towards us, move through a body of water towards land. The man’s gaze is fixed on his destination, but the heads of the woman and child are bowed, suggesting regret or sadness. In the boat with them are six upright swords. The water ahead is calm, but the water left behind is turbulent.

This is the image of the Six of Swords in the Rider Waite tarot deck.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot LondonSixes typically refer to your journey through life. Swords are often symbols of intense action and radical change. The Six of Swords, then, suggests you’ve recently taken action for a major change in your life – or that you need to do so. You may grieve over what you must leave behind, but this card confirms that the change is a positive life action.

In addition, you may be about to overcome and recover from the effects of depression or extreme trauma. In the card’s image, the swords stuck into the bottom of the boat are not hindering its progress, nor is the boat taking on water and sinking. Swords represent difficulties or pain, but in this case the pain or difficulties of your past will not hold you back as you now move forwards into a new stage of your life. However, be mindful that you may be carrying those past difficulties forward with you; the calm waters ahead indicate that you’ll be able to cope better with them as they take on less relevance in your future life.

This card may also mean travel in the most literal sense – moving from one place to another. Or it can signal the end of a relationship, or changes wrought by going back to school, or a new and improved ‘you’ – achieved by diet and exercise, for example. Regardless, your life is soon to take a turn for the better, if it hasn’t already done so.

So rejoice and embrace the change heralded by the Six of Swords, and be confident that moving on is an excellent option for your future.
