The Crescent Moon Bear Story & Strength Tarot Card - Major Arcana Card #8

Below is an excerpt from the Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

The Strength card (Leo’s correspondent) is representative of one’s use of personal power to weather turmoil, traverse trauma, and endure obstruction. Reversed can refer to a weakness or timidity in facing the current test – these could be physical/mental (sickness/depression), as well as physiological/spiritual (loss of inner and conscious cohesion). Tilted left points to proper use of sexual energy to ignite creative transformation; tilted right highlights the appropriate doling of power to affect external circumstances. Upright, Strength offers you a chance to pounce at opposition and sooth yourself with an increased self-confidence.

upright: personal power; endurance
