General meaning: The appearance of the Strength card often indicates an ability to transcend the obstacles around you through your inner strength. No matter what you are facing, know that you have the power within to master the issue. Applied willpower leads to results. Your strength may be tested now – stay the course and don’t lose hope. Strength can also indicate taming the animal desires. Your vices can be controlled – it’s up to you. Sometimes this card can also indicate taking control and shutting some shit down. Time for a smackdown!
Reversed: You’ve lost it, dawg. Things may be spiraling out of your control. Get your act together. Submitting to the situation at hand or giving up. Fear takes over. Struggles for control or dominance. Who’s really in charge? Stand up for yourself – don’t be weak sauce. Know when to shut yo trap.
Affirmation: “I have the power to change anything in my life.”
Theme song: “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor
Journaling prompt: Ponder a time in your life when you needed to be strong. What fears did you need to overcome? How did you move past your obstacles? Get that journal out and write that rap down.
You got 99 problems
Now that is whack
Time to shut it down
I got yer back
Don’t let that shit
Get your brain fried
You got this handled
Da power’s inside.
