Today's cyber-Tarot: Strength


The strongest creature equates, in my humble opinion, to the little ant, who can lift several times its own body weight (you try it, lol!). "Consider her ways, thou sluggard, and grow wise" (Book of Proverbs). She is not only the (relatively) strongest creature, but also very fierce and intensely military and warlike in her group endeavours: truly they seem not so much individuals, as a single social entity, a war-machine, building bridges of their joined bodies as part of the collective, totalitarian mentality/strategy. Fundamentalist Christians have some of the ant's militancy and collective strength in their "onward soldiering": don't they look scary? Shamans seem wisely wary of all insect-species on the other hand: perhaps because they never come alone, but bring all their friends and relations. Why does the ant on my Tarot have a little triangle of dots on her brow? Might this amount to some sort of theological fundie-ant? lol
And since no one has shown any interest in my new "art-form" of the "Tarot story", which had me so excited there for a while, I will consider that one "dead in the water" ;-P

What positive connotations does the Strength card hold for you ? It would be nice to see what you consider the relevance of the card to your life. Interesting meditation on Strength though, as 'mythos' said.

Meeting other strong, Tarot-oriented women, and digging deep into the inner meanings of the Tower and the 9 of Wands, while sitting at the bar (3 of Cups)? lol

But seriously, just as "negative" cards do not always have "negative" meanings, so "positive" cards do not always have "positive" meanings... this amounting to a case in point? lol
