Under the soft golden sky, a woman pats the lion’s head and tickles its mandible. She stares at the lion with a smile on her face and she seems to have successfully tamed the beast. The fact that the Strength Tarot card is the image of a woman, and it implies that the card does not focus on pure physical strength. This character has an infinity symbol on her head – the same symbol in the Magician Tarot card. Her white gown carries the innocence of the Fool and symbolizes her spiritual purity. The blue mountain at the back is a symbol representing masculinity as same as the Lovers.
Lion is a symbol of passion and desire for the flesh, the “animal” part in each of us. On the card, the lion is sticking out his tongue. It is considered that the beasts that are going to attack will not stick out their tongues, and so the image shows that the lion is happy to give in to the woman. The woman who domesticated the lion with a hidden power that can only come from the inside. Her left arm represents mental strength while the right arm represents physical strength. As we can see, her right arm is just holding while the left arm bears the heavyweight. She wears a belt and a crown of flowers, disinterestedly standing in a green field. The crown on her head symbolizes the most beautiful things, the most perfect of nature and this short life.

Social intelligence is a highly underrated skill. The thousands of factors that go into communicating effectively with others (human or otherwise) takes a level of intelligence that is too subtle and complex to be measured… social intelligence is an art. Nuin is a Few that speaks to speed and dexterity in communication, usually in putting a message out there to the community. Nuin means you are linked in to a community and are open to both receiving and transmitting messages. If you are working on your communication skills and reaching people (which we should all be doing) then Nuin indicates it is working.
Nuin has ties to the Norse god Odin (Germanic Wotan) who has ties to the Roman god Mercury. Mercury is the messenger, god of commercial enterprises, communication, and thieves. You can see why ancient Mercury might have a liking for the modern internet. Odin purposefully blinded himself in one eye as a price for accessing Knowledge. This myth is not meant to be taken literally, of course. Some deep thought would suggest that Odin forced himself to brutally limit himself to half the information (becoming Odin One-Eye) in order to gain all the knowledge. The lesson in the Odin myth is that great knowledge comes at a price: you have to ruthlessly limit the noise to receive the signal.
