Illustration for the Strength / The Crone Tarot Card Llewellyn's Green Witch Tarot by author Ann Moura and illustrator Kiri Østergaard Leonard, 2014:

Disclaimer for new readers: Welcome! I have illustrated a full tarot deck for Llewellyn Worldwide, the artwork has been shared here with permission from the editor. The deckw ill be releases September 8th, 2015. It’s a full 78 card deck with no borders. The author behind the project is Ann Moura, who is widely known for her Green Witch books.

Strength Card and Symbolism:
A woman named Julia asked to see the Strength card from the Green Witch Tarot, so here you go. The Crone and her lion companion, her walking staff has angelica flower tied to the top, a symbol of power and strength.

In many decks the Strength card has a person subduing a lion, I really like that Ann Moura chose to show a companionship between the two instead.

    I have been studying Ann Moura’s Green Witchcraft system for several years now. Upon spotting this tarot deck in my favorite local Metaphysical shop, I snatched it up and carried it around the store like a precious treasure! It works so well it’s like it was made for me! Thank you so much for your beautiful depictions of these concepts!

    Hi! I also like the fact that there’s a companionship; it’s a better representation of what “inner strength” is and like that the woman here is an old lady as it emphasizes that there is no physical strength at play..
