Strength as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have left.*


As the 9 of Wands talks of courage in facing an external threat, the Strength card talks about developing that courage from within. This is not battling yourself per se, though the need to overcome some personal addiction or trait you decide is unfavourable definitely falls into the realm of this card, today you are being asked to take stock of how you deal with life and then internalise the results. They don’t all serve you well and oftentimes leading to crushing insecurities.

Today you are being asked to dig deep and face a fear, or fears, that is holding you back. Don’t want to make that call to the debt collecting agency? Do it. Can’t face that awful woman at work? Face her. You can do it. The Strength card says you can and it says you can do it elegantly like a lion.
