Tarot Strength Bicameral Theory
Is strength taking the fruit, or refusing the fruit?
As an example of a bicameral archetype for this card, Achilles is opportune because of his reactionary fixed automatic responses to phenomena. We should note however that his character expresses wrath and anger but not hate.
When presented with a phenomena outside of himself, Achilles responds to voices from within himself. He is, to all intense and purposes, a puppet animated and manipulated by the strings of hallucinating voices of ancestors and Gods.
These automatic responses are recurrent throughout the Iliad. However, when we examine the Odyssey, with its central character of Odysseus, we witness a dramatic change. Odysseus is imaginatively conscious and accountable for his actions.
With the appearance of the major arcana card Strength, the affects upon the material environment become apparent when examining the minor arcana cards it influences; Five, Six and Seven of Wands, Strife, Victory and Valor respectively. See diagram
