This card stands for the balance between the Virgin and the Lioness in us, the balance between body and mind, between intellect and passion, rationality and instinct. If our Virgin part, the mind, becomes too strong, we become passionless, cold and top-heavy. If the Lioness part takes prevalence, we fall into addictions and incline more and more towards self-destructive and aggressive behaviour. We must learn to let the Virgin keep the Lioness under gentle control, not letting her have her way all the time but nevertheless not suppressing her. The lioness must be cherished, and the Virgin must know when to let her bare her teeth. If we manage this, we have inexhaustible energy and strength for everything, we are passionate, both with body and mind present at what we are doing, and we have charisma and assertiveness.
