Edmonton Tarot: Strength (XI)
Interpretation: Strong and powerful emotions lie deep within ourselves. Using moral strength and self-control, we can channel those emotions into positive and creative activities. But if no control is exercised, such emotions can overwhelm us and be acted out in negative and destructive ways.
Image: The traditional image for this tarot card depicts a beautiful woman gently prying apart a lion's jaws. The closest I could come to that in Edmonton is this magnificent Fu Temple dog (lion) found at the entrance to the Chinese Garden in Louise McKinney Riverfront Park.
