22days to Readers Studio: Day 11, Strength

Right on the heels of yesterdays Chariot is today’s card: Strength.

Tough calls and difficult decisions are impending and I need the Strength card to deal with them. Heck, I even need the Strength card to get out of bed this morning. I’m no Heracles: I don’t have a demigod’s power and energy (as much as I wish otherwise…) and I must pick and choose where to apply my strength for the best effect. As the ancient mathematician and philosopher said (and I am paraphrasing): ‘Give me a fulcrum and a long enough lever, and I can move the heavens.

But as important as it is to know where to apply one’s Strength, it’s also important to know when. Again, with only a finite amount of energy and time, we must be careful and deliberate in where and when we apply it. This also requires faith in our strength and energy; knowing and trusting that it will be there when we seek it and we can trust it do what we need it to do.

Tomorrow’s card: The Emperor!
