Here we have La Forza (Strength), and you'll see that I've chosen the version numbered VIII. There are two choices each for Strength and Justice, so you can go with your preferred numbering :)
A blonde woman appears to be riding on a rather sad-looking lion. She looks at us slyly from the corner of her eyes, while the lion gazes at her with concern. The lion's appearance upsets me a little - is the woman tormenting him, controlling him, breaking his back and his will? I normally see this card as representing soft control, or taming our animal instincts so that they work in harmony with our more civilised side. Here, though, the control feels harsher, the balance more tenuous.
As for me, today I head off on another business trip. I really didn't want to go on this one, but needs must. Perhaps, then, this is me taming my desire to stay home, to focus on more interesting work than the paperwork and slow, dull meetings which face me tomorrow...
I am grateful I don't always have to suppress my joy.
