We chose Lion to represent Strength as a nod to the Rider Waite Smith deck where the lion figures prominently. The Lion is known as the King of the Beasts and a symbol of courage and power. Strength Lion teaches us that true strength lies within.
The words for Strength Lion were inspired by the Buddhist monk Santideva who said: “Where would I find enough leather to cover the entire surface of the earth? But with leather soles beneath my feet, it’s as if the whole world has been covered.”. It’s the same for our mental fortitude: compassion is the leather that gives us internal strength to face the world.
Roses symbolize love. Love, compassion and strength are a winning trio!
The infinity bow highlights the concept of eternal and unconditional love.
Strength is ruled by the sign Leo. Leo is known for its natural regality, passion and strong will. The sign is represented by the Lion.
