What demon must we take control of? This card speaks about the shadow side of our being. The Tarot I am using shows us a woman holding the book of spells. She is using her energy to tame the monster in front of her. She holds him at bay and understands that he can be used to hurt or help others. Maybe the trials ahead of you are just there to show you that you can break through any barrier put in front of you. Maybe the trials are there to aid you on your journey of Strength. Maybe the trials are there in order to bring out the shadow side of Self so that you may understand what the dark is really like. That way you can move into the light and know what peace feels like.
