It is representative of discipline/ inner strength/ self-control/ compassion/ patience and calmness. The lion is a symbol of the fire within or the Kundalini force that sits coiled within us at the base of the spine.
The woman is symbolic of the subconscious, which controls vital functions without the need of conscious thought. She controls the lion with a gentle spiritual touch rather than from brute force. This card falls under the vibration of the number 8. The appearance of the card in a reading suggests that the querent might be facing opposition that has to be faced through tact and understanding rather than brute force. The querent may also be advised to use his will to control his vice.
