The Strength – Gilded Tarot Deck
I. Meaning of Strength Gilded Tarot
A woman with great goals walks beside the lion. Around the lion’s neck is a loose chain, and is held by the woman. The lion is a symbol of the “child” part of a woman. These instincts neither guide her nor follow her. Those instincts include a source of strength, power, and courage, which a woman can use when needed.

III. Interpretation of Strength Gilded Tarot in a spread
Strength Gilded Tarot emphasizes the power of will to overcome circumstances and reminds you to focus on the things you want instead of not wanting in life. The point is that you have enough power to control your thoughts so that it works best for you, not anyone else. It is not only your ability but also your responsibility. Beat your fear, control your impulses, and never lose patience with yourself and what you are doing. The essential thing is to make time for meditation and reflection to strengthen your inner power and strength! Don’t allow yourself to drown in your fears and worries. External things will be fine as long as keep your mind clear.
In the past position, Strength Gilded Tarot says that your current situation is rooted in the fact that you have been calm and in control of a certain situation in the past. It represents the best decision-making for you and represents your personal growth through having your own opinions. Because of that action in the past, you are now receiving its results. In its current position, Strength means that you are in a good emotional and mental state, whether you realize it or not. You are now in full control of the situation, and your ability to create the best outcome in any situation is based on cooperation and negotiation, rather than using an aggressive and imposing attitude. As a future indicator, Strength shows a favorable outcome for the querent. No matter what they are going through in life, they can overcome it by having confidence in themselves and taking control of the situation. This beneficial outcome is easily achieved once the querent is confident and thoughtful.
In terms of work, Strength Gilded Tarot says that you have all the points you need to achieve success. If you are still looking for a job, Strength urges you to keep looking because you have the skillset and determination to get the position you want. For those who already have a job, Strength is a good indicator of a promotion or raise. This is the best time to ask your boss if you can get both. This is also the time to volunteer to lead an important meeting or take on a supervisory position with a large project.
In terms of love, if you are in a relationship, Strength Gilded Tarot implies that your relationship is stable and has the conditions for both of you to thrive in a healthy way. If you are looking for love, this is a sign that love is very close as long as you dare to go out and take your chance. This is the best time to show your confidence and find your significant other.
In terms of finance, Strength Gilded Tarot indicates that you are in or will soon be in financial stability. If you have been thinking about spending on something important like buying a house or a car, now is the time to do it. Strength, however, advises us not to borrow beyond our ability if we are not sure we can afford it.
In terms of health, Strength Gilded Tarot is about defeating all diseases. So if you are carrying one, you will be able to overcome it. As long as you make sure to follow your doctor’s instructions and exercise regularly.
In terms of spirituality, even if you don’t have faith, now is a time for your spiritual development. To be truly strong, you need to pay attention to all three elements that make up who we are: body, mind, and soul. Make sure you spend enough time with all three factors. If you receive this card at a time when you are downhill, then believe that things will get better soon. This card is to remind you that you are much stronger than you think.
When the Strength Gilded Tarot card appears in reverse, it is about taking a moment to pause before making a decision that you will soon regret. If you have acted out of your personality, the reversed Strength card is likely to appear in your Tarot spread. Be honest with yourself and figure out which areas of your life need more correction, recalculation, and restraint. Besides, this is not the time for any risky and impulsive behavior.
When Strength Gilded Tarot appears in reverse, it does not mean that you are not strong, but on the contrary, it means that you are actually stronger than you think in the present situation. If you don’t know where that “power” is, ask close and trusted people to get the most objective ideas. The reversed Strength card means that you need to learn to appreciate what you have and to quickly recognize the blessings in life. People always want more, and appreciating what you have is the key to getting more.
In terms of work, before you want people to see your talents and skills, you have to understand them yourself first. What are you best at? What motivates you? These can give you insight into where your strengths are. Once that is clear, it is time to make sure your employer (or the person with the authority to give you a raise) knows it too. Take it one step at a time. You are doing well and should not be rushed.
In terms of love, similar to the upright Strength Gilded Tarot card, your love life will be fine. If you are asked out, this seems to be a close relationship where both sides support and benefit each other. If you are looking for a partner, this is a better time than usual to find your significant other. You have to be confident first, then go out and join the crowd. You might be surprised how things turn out. The only warning this reversed card gives is not to overestimate the power of love, and don’t go too far if you don’t want unpleasant surprises.
In terms of finance, in general, your economic condition is stable. But of course, also remember not to push everything. Don’t assume that you will forever be as wealthy as you are now. Do not bet much at this time nor should you borrow more than your own needs.
In terms of health, the Strength Gilded Tarot in reverse tells that you are feeling fine. This is a reasonable time to correct bad habits and take them slowly. Don’t be too hasty or push yourself too hard. Let’s progress slowly but steadily. You can consider starting with small daily goals and physical activities that can greatly improve your health. You don’t need to force yourself to quit something right away such as smoking or drinking, this type of strategy can backfire.
In terms of spirituality, the reversed Strength Gilded Tarot does not mean that you are mentally weak, on the contrary, it reminds you that you have more potential than you think. If you have a hard time seeing that in your life, spend time with nature. Look for a sight that amazes you, be it a beautiful landscape, a waterfall, or an old tree. Then remember that the power and beauty of that scene or thing is also part of you. Let’s stay connected to your inner strength as that is what the Strength card about.
