I think once we get through the whole deck, I’ll do a Tarot kit giveaway, like a deck, some candles, some tea, a tapestry or something to read the cards on. Let me know in the comments if that sounds cool or if you have a better idea. Gods know I need some. But I’m mostly always available and would love to hear what you’re thinking. But now onto our card today.
Today we get a Major Arcana card! Today looks like Strength. Unlike some Major Arcana cards, Strength is one of the few that means what is says (looking at you, Devil and Tower). I love the Strength card even in the Rider-Waite decks. Something about it is just, well, magic.
But let’s dive in before I lose myself in self-reflection.
Strength is a great card, it’s powerful, it means what it says; it’s Strength. It tells you to be strong, to be courageous. The advice from the White Book is mostly this: act with conviction, without hestiation, and trust yourself to know what do.
This honestly the first time I’ve pulled Strength for myself in a reading, but just seeing it makes me want to punch a bear and climb a skyscraper. The colors alone in any deck are usually so bright and eyecatching, strong is almost an understatement.
For today, I believe we must remember we have been strong enough to get to this point and we are strong enough to persevere. We are strong enough to change the future to better serve us and those after us. We are strong.
Here’s running tally of the card’s we’ve pulled:
- Three of Wands
- Two of Swords
So there’s about 75 cards we have to get through!
