Card Meaning

Artist's Bio


The background of this card is predominately yellow as in many other decks. A young woman is gently holding her hand on the lion's head. The lion is not fierce, but is subdued, and serene. The expression on the girls face is also one of serenity and confidence and inner resolve. Above the lion's head are several butterflies flying skyward.


In this card I have depicted a young woman, who, with the mere touch of her hand and the silent will from within, can sooth the savage beast, and render him as gentle as a newborn kitten. The Lion is an enigmatic symbol, representing, power, passion and strength, and is both physical and emotional. He can also represent out darker side. The woman represents our inner strength, our abilities to overcome obstacles and blockages, curb our inner fears and irrational thoughts. To gain power over ourselves, through inner contemplation.

The butterflies above the lion's head, are a representation of the transformation taking place into spiritual awareness, flying away from the physical being.

True strength is not strength of the physical kind, but is of the kind that comes from within.
