The Strength – Mermaid Tarot

I. Image description on Strength Mermaid Tarot
Once the southern right whale is really mature, it will encounter a natural enemy: humans. Under the waves, no one wants to disturb this quiet and graceful giant. Unfortunately, they find themselves trapped year after year in human hooks or in man-made oil slicks. Today, these whales find themselves in a state of confusion and anguish. Alone, the whale will surely drown because he will not be able to come up to catch his breath.
Thankfully, one of the mermaids on patrol spots him and carefully untangles his body and fins from the net. As she is freeing the whale, she sings a soothing song to calm the whale and relieve his anxiety. Her hand moves gently and quickly over the net and the whale’s body. For his part, the whale will never forget this act of kindness, from a person who is inherently very small, weak, and in need of its help.
II. The message of Strength Mermaid Tarot in a reading
Often the word “Strength” will make us immediately think of physical strength (muscles, a jacked and strong body). But what about the strength that comes from within? Inner strength not only comes from the physical training that helps to have a healthy heart, but it also comes from patience, perseverance, courage, determination, and composure – noble qualities will help us stay strong when the storm hits. In the past, people who possessed inner strength were often called people with qualities. They are the kind of people you can completely trust during the darkest hours of your life. Strength Mermaid Tarot represents this source of energy, strength comes from determination.
Strength is not a card with flashy meanings, but it is a card of reliability and stability. However, this card also symbolizes patience and compassion. It is easy to get angry when we are in difficult situations, but staying calm to find a way to solve the problem requires real strength. Just like acceptance and forgiveness! We need the power of this card to gently navigate adversity. The Chariot controls all matters with power and authority while Strength handles things in a gentler and more subtle way, which is to use love.
Strength Mermaid Tarot tends to appear in readings on matters requiring the expression of its characteristic qualities. In addition, it can also be a reminder to people not to get discouraged and give up. You have enough inner spiritual strength to endure these challenges and claim glory. And if you feel like you are being pushed too hard, this is the time to find a way out of reality and make yourself really patient. If someone or another situation drives you crazy, remember that true strength comes from love and enduring self-control. These will be magical treasures to help you in the most difficult moments of your life.
III. The Strength Mermaid Tarot upright meanings
It is easy to think that big, powerful things don’t need help and support. We assume that whales only need a huge body to get them out of trouble. Isn’t it easy to make judgments based solely on appearances? This type of bias is often wrong and can lead to dangerous situations like when we ignore people who seem more capable than we are when we see them in trouble. The truth is that everyone struggles. Everyone needs help and support from time to time, and it would be troublesome if we became insensitive to the pain and misery of those around us because of our own bias.
Strength Mermaid Tarot emphasizes the strength of will to help overcome all adversities in life. And it also reminds you to always focus on what you want, instead of wasting time distracted by things you don’t really want in life. In particular, the most important part is that you need to be able to control all your thoughts so that it creates things that bring the most benefit to yourself, not for anyone else. This is not just about using your abilities, it is also your responsibility. Beat your fears, control your impulses, and never lose patience with yourself about what you are doing.
If The Chariot Mermaid Tarot refers to the source of strength directed outwards, Strength Mermaid Tarot directs to the source of strength that comes from the inner part, requiring each of us to seek out the best knowledge to help us understand ourselves. This is a mellow but extremely difficult battle. The key to solving any problem is to set aside time alone for meditation and independent reflection, even if you have a strong relationship with a lot of people. Don’t allow yourself to indulge in fears and worries. The negative things outside will gradually settle down, the most important thing is that you need to always keep your mind clear.
Strength Mermaid Tarot represents willpower, determination, and resilience in a similar way to The Chariot. However, the differences between these two Major cards are very clear. While The Chariot represents outer strength and will, Strength represents one’s inner spiritual strength and capacity to overcome any obstacle. Strength implies that you can endure obstacles in life by focusing on your inner strength and confidence. You have great stamina and endurance. You maintain a mild temper through patience and inner calm. You focus on what you need to do, and you do it in a way that shows maximum composure and maturity.
Strength Mermaid Tarot also illustrates an approach based on compassion and empathy. You seem like the young mermaid in this card, who gives love and patience to the ferocious whale so that it can be tamed. You give others space and tolerate all their needs. You accept and can easily overlook any imperfections. When you do, you create a safe and trustworthy environment where you can gently influence others. This represents a “soft” level of control, as you persuade and direct others to your way of thinking.
The quality of Strength Mermaid Tarot is already in you, waiting to appear as soon as you control all the mundane elements, your basic emotions, and when you are ready to handle the mental task ahead. The basic lesson is that emotions must be overcome if mental wisdom and intuition are to be awakened. The inner voice is often drowned out by transient emotions, anxieties, and fears. Only when you let go of these immature emotions can you begin to find the serenity you need. Overcome your fears, control your impulsive personality, and never lose patience with yourself or with what you are doing. You will even see the wisdom of following your inner self. Strength will show you that you have the power to overpower your inner child. Meditating on this card can help with your process of enhancing and experiencing the power inherent in your natural self.
Strength Mermaid Tarot shows a balance between the aspects of your being: the human part, the child part, and the spiritual part. This may seem impossible, but love, kindness, and a brave heart can make it all harmonious and balanced. In a Tarot reading, the appearance of Strength implies a time when you need to be aware of your instinctive urges and reactions, and harmonize them through good meanings in life. This is not the time to react in anger or hatred but instead, consider the situation in love and empathy.
Strength Mermaid Tarot conveys a higher level of awareness that allows you to take responsibility for yourself so that you can take control of yourself and your world. The card reminds us that inside each of us is a part of empathy and instinct that will manifest often or rarely, depending on the individual. If you are one of those types of people who act impulsively or irrationally, and the type that utters angry or negative words towards others, Strength also reminds you to try to tame yourself. The mermaid in this card conquers the whale by bringing peace, love, and warmth. You will probably need to do the same to prevent yourself from jumping around and saying something you might later regret.
In a Tarot reading, Strength Mermaid Tarot gives you hope to connect both the forces within and without. It also requires you to regain the confidence in yourself to present yourself to the world with an image of strength, firm stance, and perseverance. If you have always doubted yourself, the Strength card gives you the confidence to refute those doubts. Furthermore, if you are feeling too tired or stressed, Strength will tell you that: “Things will get better! You will find the strength in yourself and in others to keep going!” You can be sure that you will have the patience to see the task completed at the last minute. If you are in a very difficult situation, the card will imply that you should withdraw for a while and wait patiently. Enlightenment will only come when the time is right – not in a hurry.
With this card, it is clear that strength and courage will cover all your efforts. Results may be slow to come, but you will need to understand yourself and focus enough energy to get the job done. In other words, your efforts will be recognized and rewarded later.
In terms of work, Strength Mermaid Tarot tells you that if you are looking for a job, don’t worry because your hard work is about to be reaped. Know that you have enough capital and skills to be able to find yourself a steady job. And if you are in a difficult situation, this is the period where you need to be patient as we can only rely on ourselves to overcome the challenges in life.
If you have a job already, chances are things will change in the coming time. Don’t hesitate to negotiate to get what you deserve. The reward received may surprise you! Or, if you have not had a chance to negotiate a raise or promotion, think seriously about changing jobs or starting your own business. You actually have more options than you think!
If you are looking to start a new job, you should determine your worth to ask for a commensurate wage. If your efforts and talents have been spent but do not receive the right evaluation, perhaps you should think about changing your job. If you are starting a new project, you should look closely at the problems you face in many different ways so that you can find the right direction.
In terms of money and finance, Strength Mermaid Tarot advises you to make sure you don’t forget to stock up on some capital for yourself though it may have been a while since you have had to. You will surely feel that it is well worth spending money to take care of yourself and those you love. By now, you may be ready to buy something of great value like a house or car. This is a good opportunity if you are looking to invest to make more profit. You should let your money circulate and keep only a few. If you are in the period of bankruptcy, do not worry too much as this phase will pass quickly. If you are looking to borrow, this may not be the right time.
You need to take the time to think carefully about your plans to use this amount of money first. And of course, never think about borrowing more than you can afford! And if you are intending to lend money to your friends, the card implies that you will probably face trouble when you want to get your money back. On the other hand, the card is also a warning that you should not let your greed lead the way. Illegal sources of money or items of unknown origin are not a wise choice for you at this time.
In terms of friends and colleagues, Strength Mermaid Tarot implies that you may have a bit of trouble with your friends, possibly due to disagreement, isolation, mental pressure, etc, or they will force you to do things you don’t like. The advice for you is that this is not the time to give in to everyone, you should be frank with your thoughts. At the same time, have the courage to refuse to participate in things you don’t enjoy at all.
On the issue of colleagues, it seems that when you are in a difficult situation, your colleagues will ignore it, which causes your work to be delayed. Instead of handling everything alone, you should ask a higher-level person to directly request colleagues to support you. However, you should not hold hostility towards colleagues, but use affection and professional attitude to turn their disgust into adoration!
In terms of family and loved ones, if you are having problems at work and need advice or ideas, the best way is to consult with experienced people in this field in your family. The card also advises you that instead of just spending time on your own hobbies, find a way to balance, spend more time with family and loved ones.
This time does not seem like the right time to express your personal views. Instead, listen to what elders are trying to share with you. If you insist on putting yourself first and don’t want to listen, this will definitely lead to unnecessary conflicts. All the problems that are about to happen are only because of the differences in thought between different generations in the family.
In terms of romantic relationships, Strength Mermaid Tarot advises you to change your way of thinking and current style. These things can help you improve your long-term singleness. You need to have the confidence to step out and blend in with the surrounding people. You might be surprised at how things turn out right after that. And if you’re suddenly asked out by someone, this is likely to be a long-term relationship, and both of you can support and benefit each other.
And if you are in a relationship, remember that good things cannot be seen with the eyes, but must be felt with the heart. Don’t let negative things affect your relationship. If you have a family, then this is indeed a great love! This card shows that you are a person who always thinks about your family. Of course, sometimes you will still feel very tired because of the problems in life. At those times, family is a powerful resource to help motivate you mentally!
In terms of health, Strength Mermaid Tarot means that your health and vitality are in a good condition right now. However, you should do a few simple exercises if you are too busy and do not have much free time. This is a very good time to adjust bad habits to protect your health. Starting with small goals like walking for 10 minutes a day can greatly improve your performance. This will make you healthier and more energetic than you are now! And if you are in the process of treatment, the card indicates a good recovery. On the other hand, it is necessary to fight the bad daily habits as they are the main cause of your health being gradually destroyed!
In terms of duties and superiors, maybe you are about to face a rather difficult task. However, as long as you try your best, you can still get through. On the other hand, you should also consult with your superiors to find the best direction to help solve this task completely. This will be one of the biggest challenges of your life that you will need to go through. Therefore, the Strength card advises you to try your best and always keep persevering because all the effort you put in will surely pay off.
In terms of accidents and loss, Strength Mermaid Tarot tells you that if you have pets, you should pay attention to them. Maybe they are about to have some health problems or you will lose them out of sight. On the other hand, you should also be careful with rumors or betrayals from people you trust, causing you to be demoralized and heartbreaking. Chances are you may feel like there is no one else in the world worth trusting. And then, only you can lift yourself up to get rid of being tied down by these bad negative emotions!
In terms of spirit, even if you are inherently the type of person who has no faith, this is still a very suitable time for spiritual life. To really become strong, you need to pay attention to all three main elements that make up who you are, including body, mind, and soul. Make sure you have given enough time to take good care of all three. If so, when everything in front of you becomes extremely difficult and you encounter a lot of obstacles that make your mood quickly drop, the appearance of Strength Mermaid Tarot brings the message to believe that everything will get better soon. And this card also reminds you that you are actually stronger than you think!
IV. The Strength Mermaid Tarot reversed meanings
There is a difference between power and strength. One is used to threaten, manipulate, and control, while the other is something deep within us – a weak space where we can allow ourselves to be afraid but still try to move at any cost. Right now you are confusing your inner strength with your weakness. You have convinced yourself that being strong is more important than being weak. The truth, however, is that fear and uncertainty are part of what makes strength. Like the giant whale, you have to trust that where you are will provide the support, compassion, and kindness you need.
When the Strength Mermaid Tarot appears in reverse, it does not mean that you are not strong. On the contrary, it is saying that you are actually stronger than you think, especially in all the circumstances that are happening right now. And if you don’t know where that “source of power” is, try asking the people you trust the most to get the most accurate answer!
Strength Mermaid Tarot in reverse refers to the need to learn to appreciate what you have and to quickly recognize the blessings in life that you are enjoying. People always want more than what they already have. However, few know that appreciating what you have is the key to getting more!
Strength Mermaid Tarot in reverse often implies weakness. You may have just experienced a setback, or you are wondering about your own journey and wondering if you are on the right track. Right now you are lacking strength and courage and as a result, you feel inadequate and vulnerable. While these feelings may seem very real right now, you will soon realize that they exist only to remind you that you are only temporarily out of touch with your inner strength. You need to remember that the central power is always within you and this is a good time to reconnect with this source of strength. Focus on the positive aspects of your life to restore confidence and self-control. Let’s go back to the lesson of The Chariot, where you need to summon willpower, focus, and determination to overcome obstacles and win.
Similarly, Strength Mermaid Tarot in reverse also suggests that perhaps you have begun to doubt yourself, as well as more or less lose self-control and confidence. Instead of taking the lead and manifesting your own goals, you can fall into a spiral of self-doubt and come to depend on the feelings and actions of others, which will then control you. yourself. In a Tarot reading, Strength is also associated with inner control, and in the reversed position, it will indicate that you may be having the instinctive reactions and lack of control you need. Impulsivity can be a problem and so taking an anger management course could be a good move for you. You need to practice more control over your mundane emotions to make sure you don’t hurt others and then regret your actions and words later.
In terms of work, before you want people to recognize your talent and ability, you first need to understand everything about it. You need to answer some questions like: What are you best at? What motivates you to do it? These things are simple but can help you realize deeply where your true strength is. When everything is clear, this is also the time when you can be confident that your boss (the recruiter/person with the authority to increase your salary) will also realize it. You have been doing very well. Be patient and do everything step by step and absolutely do not rush!
In terms of money and finance, all your money-related matters are quite favorable. However, don’t try to force everything and don’t think that you will forever be as rich as you are now. This is the time when you should not gamble nor borrow more than your necessary spending needs.
In terms of romantic relationships, similar to the Strength card in the upright direction, all matters related to your love life will gradually improve even more. If you were asked out by someone, this is likely to be a promising relationship where both sides are supportive and mutually beneficial. If you are single and want to find the person of your dreams, now is a better time than usual to do so.
In a relationship reading, Strength Mermaid Tarot in reverse may suggest that you are doubting yourself and feel as though you are not “good enough” for this relationship. You may feel insecure and often doubt whether your partner really has the best feelings for you. This will probably turn you into someone else instead of yourself. It may be someone who is always feeling anxious, confused, or overly protective of his/her relationship. First of all, you need to be confident and take care of yourself, then step out and blend in with others. You might be surprised at how things turn out right after that. The only warning that the reversed card gives is never to overestimate the power of love.
In terms of health, you are feeling pretty good about your body condition. And now is also the right time for you to correct your bad habits. However, take things slowly, don’t rush or push yourself too hard. Start with small goals and increase the intensity gradually. Daily physical activity can help you improve your health even more. Therefore, you don’t have to force yourself to speed up your workout right away as these methods just backfire.
In terms of spirit, Strength Mermaid Tarot in reverse does not mean that you are mentally weak, but on the contrary, it is reminding you that you actually have more potential than you think. In real life, if you have a hard time realizing it, take the time to let your soul out into nature. Find a wild space that you love, for example, a beautiful landscape with a murmuring waterfall or a dreamy space right under a great old tree. The power and beauty that come from that scenery will merge into one and become part of your body. Finally, try to keep the connection between that space and your inner strength.
