Soul Message: Mountain Pride with noble beauty, teach me to honor my responsibility, to walk my talk and with love impart, to follow my journey, a Path with Heart. Isha Lerner (from The Power of Flowers)
Alchemy and Transformation: At this stage of initiation, it is imperative that the individual apply the wisdom of the previous card, The Journey Home, to everyday tasks. The step into Strength is a true test of character for the individual. How will you use your power? How will you use your will? As you step into the world of conscious living, you must move beyond the limitations of the past and begin to engage with the skills and attributes of self-mastery.
Awakening to the Archetype The Earth Mother: With the Strength card, you are invited into the shrine of the Earth Mother, where the strength and integrity of the Divine Feminine is stored, vitalized, and regenerated. Strength is born from the heart. Her mission is to refine the nature of humanity, magically opening to the possibility of right relationship with the world.
Everyday Encounters: There are many ways to strengthen your attunement to the earth, as well as to your life path or destiny. Take walks in the mountains. Meet the wild woods and let the wind caress your skin. Get down on your hands and knees and behold the virgin budding of the first spring flowers. Lay on your back on the bare earth and watch the Moon rise and set. Let Earth nourish you.
