The Strength card speaks for itself, it’s a card of inner strength and determination. It represents the power inside each of us to be able to overcome any obstacles that are placed in front of us. Strength teaches you that even the hardest of challenges can be completed when you put your mind to it. When you feel overwhelmed by your circumstances, you must remember that your inner strength is capable of accomplishing the impossible, and with focus and determination behind it, you can conquer anything.

Strength suggests that you are a strong and passionate character and are capable of taking responsibility for yourself and your actions. You don’t shy away from your mistakes, instead, you face the consequences and deal with the situation head on. This card can, however, indicate that sometimes you can come off too strong and become a little overwhelming to those around you, and suggests that sometimes you need to take a step back and calm down.

On another level, Strength could also suggest that you’re lacking in confidence and is trying to give you that extra push in order to find your inner strength and connect with yourself on a deeper level. Once you find that inner strength, your confidence will not be far behind. When we lose confidence, we start to doubt ourselves. Regain control of your thoughts and start believing in yourself again.
