Does the Strength card mean yes or no in a Tarot reading?
The Strength card means yes, not only can you get what you want but you can do it without waiting around for anyone or anything else. Your path is staring you right in the face.
A major arcana like this is almost always a good sign for a yes or no Tarot reading but cards like this do more than simply give a one-word answer. They can help you get what you want if you let them. If we scratch below the surface, the deck is trying to give you advice on how to overcome the obstacles in your path.
Does the Strength Mean Yes or No?
Generally, it’s a yes. At the very least you have the opportunity ahead of you but nothing is ever written in stone or guaranteed. Your goal won’t just be handed to you, there are likely some obstacles between where you are and you getting what you want.
The good news is that no matter the obstacle, the arrival of this card means you can overcome and get what you desire. This card is the symbol of courage, influence and (of course) strength.
Upright Strength as Yes or No Question
Yes! Keep going!
Upright, the card tells you that you should remain strong and keep on your current path, even if things seem tough or stagnant. The lion in this image is symbolic of your inner strength and power. It suggests that you should rely on your own resources to get through whatever challenges are in your path.
It’s also a symbol of emotional control and compassion. It might be that whatever (or whoever) is currently in your path doesn’t actually want to be there.
Reversed Strength as Yes or No Question
Yes, release the self-doubt.
Reversed, the Strength card is about self-doubt. It’s normal to question our own ability but sometimes it’s our own internal struggle that holds us back. You might be struggling to find your inner power at the moment. This might be the time you need to reach out for help from those around you.
This is a time to remember that you are not alone and that even your lowest points are only temporary. You have the ability to rise above any challenge that comes your way.
One single Tarot card might only tell us so much, even such an important major card as Strength. We can dig deeper with a free Tarot reading to get a deeper insight into what the cards want you to know.
Upright Strength as Yes or No for Love
Nothing is in your way.
For your relationships and love life, the upright Strength card means that you’re currently in a position of strength and power. This does not mean power over others, but power over your own future.
It’s a sign that there’s nothing between you and everlasting love so it’s just down to you to decide what you want. Where are your priorities? This isn’t the time to settle for something that doesn’t make you happy because of your fear of what might come. You’re strong enough to weather any storm that comes your way.
Whether you’re single and looking for a new relationship or you’re in an existing relationship, this is a very good sign of things on your horizon.
Reversed Strength as Yes or No for Love
Yes. Don’t let your inner struggle hold you back.
Reversed, a card like Strength is still a very good sign. A major arcana is always a symbol of a real and true relationship on the horizon. The only thing holding you back is not (as it often appears) external. It’s your own self-doubt and inner struggle about your ability to find love. You may feel stuck, weak or insecure, and as a result, your energy is low.
All of this raw emotion can make it difficult for you to form healthy relationships or even prevent you from meeting anyone, to begin with.
You have incredible opportunities before you and this can be a time of tremendous growth emotionally. If you’re willing to face your fears and insecurity, you can grow into a much stronger and more confident person. Your love life will follow suit.
Upright Strength as Yes or No for Advice
Yes, just know what you want first.
If you’re asking the cards for advice, Strength is telling you that you already have the power and ability to get what you want. Your problem isn’t ability or lack of courage. Inwardly you already know that you can get what you want. The question should really be about figuring out what you want.
There’s a big distinction between what you want and the path you can sometimes find yourself on. Maybe you started something without a plan. Maybe someone else pushed you towards it. Maybe this is the right path and you just hadn’t thought about it yet.
You can get what you want. Just be sure you know what that is before going forward.
Reversed Strength as Yes or No for Advice
Take a breath. Slow down.
If your card arrives reversed to offer advice, it’s telling you that this feeling of being overwhelmed or stuck is actually the main thing holding you back. Inaction is preventing you from moving forward even when it feels like the problem is external.
Indecision is causing doubt, doubt is causing a lack of energy and that lack of energy is causing indecision. It can become a vicious circle. You may feel like you have no energy or that your emotions are running wild. This is not a good time to make important decisions.
Instead, focus on building up your strength. Strengthen your resolve by taking a moment to be kinder to yourself. Give yourself a break, you’re doing fine. Even if it doesn’t always feel that way – this is still a major arcana for a reason. Get in touch with your inner power and let it guide you through this difficult time. With time and patience, you will eventually overcome these feelings and be back to your usual self.
Upright Strength as Yes or No for Career and Finance
Yes! Abundance ahead!
If the focus of your card was on your financial abundance and/or your career this is a very good sign. A major arcana is always a symbol of abundance ahead and the Strength card in particular means you’re capable in any area you choose to tackle.
There might be obstacles before you so not everything will come easy but rely on your inner strength. You have what it takes to succeed and you might be surprised about the opportunities before you. The Strength card is about being fearless and using your courage to achieve your goals. This is a time when you can be persuasive and influential in achieving your objectives.
Reversed Strength as Yes or No for Career and Finance
Yes. Leave the doubt behind.
Reversed, the Strength card is a symbol that you are currently experiencing a time of self-doubt, weakness, and insecurity. Raw emotion and low energy might be preventing you from taking action but your obstacles are not external – they come from within.
It doesn’t matter who or what stands in your way externally when you have such incredible potential inside. You may feel like you can’t make any progress in your career or that you’re not good enough to succeed financially but it’s this very thought process preventing you from getting what you want.
Focus on your strengths, not your lack of progress so far. With some time and a little effort, you will come out stronger than before.
Strength for Trust: Should You Trust Them?
For whether or not you can (or should) trust someone – the answer is yes.
This card is a symbol of their character and their ability to do what they say they will. It’s also about having the courage to stand by them, even when things get tough. This card encourages you to have faith in your relationship with this person and to stay strong no matter what comes your way.
Trust is key in any relationship, and the Strength tarot card is a reminder that it’s worth fighting for. Believe in yourself and in this person. You’ll both push each other forward.
What Is the Strength Trying to Tell You?
Are you afraid to use your power? Or is there something holding you back from achieving your goals? The Strength card asks you to look deep inside and find that hidden reserve of power. When you do, you can accomplish anything and you might be surprised about the outcome.
