The eighth key in tarot's Major Arcana, Strength, represents the Zodiacal sign Leo, and connects the spheres of Justice and Mercy on the Qabalistic Tree Of Life. The lion represents the life power known in Indian terminology as Kundalini, and the woman opening the lion's mouth symbolizes the gradual activation of this power. The roses around the woman's waist indicate that the only safe way of activating this kundalini energy is through love and creativity, opening the heart chakra represented by Leo's ruler the Sun.
The Hebrew letter associated with this key is Teth, meaning "serpent".
