Tarot Card Meanings: A Note on Strength and Justice

img_6091
Card VIII and Card XI: Strength? Justice? Adjustment? Lust? Which one goes where??!

And so we reach Card VIII in our travels through the sequence of the Major Arcana in the TAROT CARD MEANINGS section of my website.

But wait…which card exactly is Card VIII?! Some decks offer up their version of the Strength card in this position. Others, though, hold forth their Justice card or its analogue. It can’t be both Strength AND Justice, right? So which one is correct?

Answer: Both. Or neither. There are reasons and historical precedents to support either approach. Much of this will depend on you applying some critical thought as to which one works better for you…

And fortunately, to help you along in this thought process, I just put up a new NOTE ON STRENGTH AND JUSTICE that breaks down the history of this issue for you, and hopefully makes it clear that there is no One Right Way of doing things here.

You can ponder this odd and interesting schism among Tarot practitioners and their viewpoints for a bit, and then we’ll resume our march through the Majors with some thoughts on the Strength card in the next post in the series, to follow soon…

AND NOTE: The TAROT TOOLKIT ONLINE COURSE will be discontinued at the close of this calendar year of 2016! Get your copy of this info-packed and accessible resource before the final bell tolls on its availability: 10 class sessions in MP4 format, a 120-page PDF Workbook, and a few extra freebie files to get you started on mixing some Astrology and Kabbalah principles into your Tarot game, all for the low, low price of only $33 USD!!!

Tarot Card Meanings: The Lovers

The Lovers (“L’Amoureux”) – Card VI

After being introduced to a string of solo players, we arrive at the first of the Major Arcana cards to feature a multi-character drama on its face. Who are these characters? What do they represent, individually and as a collective? How do we factor all of them into a reading when this card appears???

You can get the answers to these and other Lovers-related questions by taking a stroll through today’s addition to this site’s burgeoning TAROT CARD MEANINGS section!

Tarot Card Meanings: The Emperor

The Emperor (“L’Empereur”) – Card IV

Tarot Tips: Free eBook!

TAROT TIPS book cover

FREE eBook!

Tarot Tips is the first eBook that I’ll be publishing under the Arrow In Flight Metaphysics imprint. I ask you to pay special attention to that qualifying word “first,” because there should be plenty more such offerings following this one in the days ahead…

Meanwhile, this inaugural work is a short but helpful volume that collects up ten easy-to-implement techniques that can really deepen your connection with Tarot. These ideas have all been selected for being just a bit off-center from the usual Tarot teachings, and they should all strengthen your overall Tarot chops, and enable you to see the cards in new and intriguing ways.  If you’re looking to go beyond simply memorizing and reciting Tarot card meanings when you perform your readings, then this slim volume may be exactly what you need.

And best of all, the book is absolutely free!  Also, anyone interested in the Tarot Toolkit Online Course that I taught earlier this year with Vickie Wilson of Eternal Athena Tarot may find a bit of added incentive to take a good look through the pages!

Please give it a try, and don’t hesitate to let me know what you think of it. I hope that some of the techniques found inside will yield some real progress for you in your own Tarot practice.

If you’re ready to try out Tarot Tips, please do the following:

  1. Take a moment to sign up for the Arrow In Flight Mailing List.
  2. In the final “Subscription Confirmed” email that you’ll receive as part of the sign up process, you’ll find a link that will allow you to download your free copy of the Tarot Tips eBook.

And it’s as easy as that – thanks for reading!

Please note: this free eBook is being released as a tie-in to the Tarot Toolkit Online Course, which also may be of interest to you (look inside the eBook for a special Toolkit-related offer!):
