Notice the iconographic reference to the labors of Hercules.
The woman portrayed on the card has a sideways 8 over her head, the symbol of infinity, or in some cases, a hat that recalls the same shape.
Meaning in the Tarot
The card symbolizes brute strength (the lion) conquered by intelligence.
It therefore reminds us to use our own intelligence to resolve situations, without taking drastic measures, rash solutions, or resorting to brute strength.
The card of Strength also indicates success in resolving situations thanks to one’s own inner strength, courage, and astuteness.
Poor results due to an excessive use of force or an impulsive reaction, without having reflected first.
Lack of time to reflect – overcome by events – and consequential wrong actions.
