I’ve written interpretations for every card in the Wild Unknown Tarot. As the box of the deck states, there are no rights or wrongs. These are simply my perspectives on the tarot card meanings. I hope you find them useful!

The Strength card is quietly dominated by the presence of a lion. The lion faces straight forward. Like the Chariot, she is not one to shy away from problems. She approaches difficult situations with a balance of patience and conviction.
She carries a rose in her mouth. Although her teeth are sharp enough that they could easily rip the flower in half, they do not. Instead, it is held carefully, showing a gentle fierceness. Her mastery is achieved softly, not through brute force. Instead of exerting her will to solve a problem, she works WITH the problem.
Above the lion is a sun, emanating orange and yellow rays. This adds to the sense of pride we already associate with lions. On the lion’s forehead is a lemniscate, enhanced with orange and yellow. This shows a broad scope of infinite energy.
I tend to draw comparisons between Strength & The Chariot as they show variations on a similar theme. The Chariot shows more of a firm-hand control, Strength shows more of a patient mastery. The Wild Unknown does a magnificent job portraying the traits that we have come to associate with the Strength card.
