Fool's Journey Day 9
With The Vice Versa deck the original side is called This Side and the added side is called That Side. There is no good side or bad side or right side and reverse side. It simply another aspect of the card.
The next step on our journey is 8 - Strength
This side: Strength is here in a sunny field of wheat with a great lion. She is smiling and calm and it is clear that she is in no danger. Strength is the power from within. She is sitting on the lions flank and playfully opening his jaws much like one would play with a house cat.
In a reading: Don't be afraid to access your strength and put them to good use. But also be playful and to remember that you can be powerful without being overpowering. Have patience and compassion. You have the inner strength to endure and succeed.
That side: Here we see the Devil (which is the card directly below Strength in the next row of 7) looming up in front of Strength, dimming the light of the sun. But she is life force itself and cannot be dimmed by that darkness. The devil may threaten but he can't destroy what refuses to be destroyed.
In a reading: Face your shadow self and let go of old chains holding you back. You don't have to repeat the same patterns anymore. Confront your demons and claim your strength and power back.
