Eight: The Strength of the Major Arcana

The young maiden must have strength to control the mouth of the beast.  In classic decks the infinity symbol, which looks like the number eight on its side, hovers above her garland.  This signifies that her courage and fortitude is a gift from above; the spiritual world.  She uses her endowments to conquer the carnal pleasures and obstacles, so they may not rule her life.  She counters them with spiritual endeavors.  She is unafraid of conflict because she is confident in her own power.
Meanings: vitality, good health, strength, patience, confidence, and arrival of a new pet.
Reverse: discord, lack of morals, fear of the unknown in our spirit, abuse of power, and obsession with materials.
