The Magician

Self-control, Patience, Compassion, Serenity


Description:

A calm and gentle looking woman clasping the lion's jaws. The lemniscate hovering over the woman's head that is blazoned with flowers. The Strength means moderation in attitudes toward pain and danger, with neither being avoided at all costs, nor actively wanted. The interpretation of the card stresses discipline and control. The lion represents the primal part of the mind, and the woman, the more elevated parts. The card tells to be wary of the temptations of the flesh. Comparing to the battle fought on The Chariot card, in Strength, the battle is mainly internal.
