Strengthening strengths is far easier than strengthening weaknesses. By focusing our energy on strengthening our personal strengths, we are able to grow quickly and easily. The same amount of energy spent on improving our personal weak spots will only result in small, incremental changes that do not have the same effect. These six tarot cards will help you strengthen your strengths.
GROW & SHARE
Honing your personal strengths is not a selfish act. Your unique abilities allow you to serve the world. Your work matters. Becoming the best, wisest, and most impactful version of yourself matters, too. By practicing and perfecting your thoughts, your beliefs, and your abilities, you’ll become a tool for healing, change, and growth for yourself and others.
STRENGTH THROUGH CHALLENGE
You are ready to go All In and commit with total focus and discipline to yourself. Win or lose, you’ll at least know you gave it your all, which is the ultimate success. When I say give it your all, I mean ALL. Most of us do “just enough” to get the job done, without ever committing to see what our full potential actually looks like. With the Five of Wands, you are ready to commit beyond anything you’ve done before.
START STRONG & NEVER GIVE UP
If you are questioning your path or starting a new quest, you are in the right place and you are ready. Pursue your ideas. Change won’t happen overnight, but it is guaranteed to happen if you keep taking daily action toward your goals without quitting. Success is 100% within your power and control.
STRENGTH IN VULNERABILITY
Let yourself be open and receptive to the help, resources, and ideas that come your way. You can’t do it all – and you don’t need to. Focus on the things you do best and allow yourself to accept help and assistance from others. They WANT to help you! Let them shine in their own way.
The King of Pentacles knows his time on this Earth in this body is fleeting, so he is committed to fully living and learning while he is here. Follow the King’s guidance and create a daily practice of self-care and self-awareness for yourself. Commit to confronting your fears and excuses so you can live your life as your biggest, best self. Don’t let yourself play small.
POWER & SELF-BELIEF
The lessons of the Strength card come from mastering yourself with acceptance and unconditional love. Hold faith in your plans and yourself, and don’t lose hope. Things may not be going as well as you’d like, but you absolutely have the power and ability to control what matters.
