8 Strength, New World Tarot, Cristy C. Road, Silver Sproket, 2021. Copyright Christy C. Road. Used with permission.

For Strength, resilience is embodied by a hardline firecracker who never holds back, never loses sight of their power, and doesn’t cry over spilled puke – if anything, they’re wiping off the puke with their forearm and laughing it off in a grandiose feather boa, leaving no room for their humble, natural counterpart… Strength asks you to navigate ferocious terrain in order to learn radical tenderness.
