Tonight I've pulled the Strength VIII card. This card for me is about inner strength,fortitude. The first thing my eye is drawn tied the red roses beside the woman's arm. What I getting from this is having the strength to embrace or be open to love or romance. I see how both the woman's and the lion's eyes are closed. This speaks of the trust and courage it takes from both parties to allow one's self to be vulnerable. Being ruled by Leo it also speaks to having a strong sense of self worth and a commanding precense that exudes power, but personal power over insecurity not power or control over others. It's about having the strength to face the scarier aspects of ourselves and embrace the lovingly.
