She wears a garland of flowers, indicating a zest for life, coupled with her white gown of purity of thought and emotions. Around her waist is a belt of roses, symbolizing the union of desire and purity of thought. Over her head hangs the cosmic lemniscate of eternity (the same symbol above The Magician’s head in Key 1), indicating that she is guided by Spirit.

Once again, Tarot urges us to find balance in our lives: balance of mind, body, spirit, balance of the profane and the sacred, balance of power and submission.

The Strength Key is about learning to trust in the Universal protection that isalways given us, if we but ask. The Key also represents that, while dangerous obstacles are often in our path, the courage of our convictions, coupled with faith in the Eternal, we will be guided and cared for.

Blessed be,
