11 - Lust

Author: Anja Heij

In most Tarot decks this card is called Strength. Lust however is the enjoyment of feeling strong in your life, it is lust for life, being the life-force itself!

It is the intimately union of the sun (the lion, male principle) with the moon (the woman, female principle). By means of using and controlling our sensuality and desires we reach spiritual ecstasy and shape the Universe, thus also teaches us tantra, tao and sex magic.

Meaning: strength, energy and vitality, great passion, temperamental love affair, the use of magical power, courage.

Reverse: weakness, impotence, destructive forces in a love affair (hatred, violence, jealousy).
