Upright Meanings: choices, hallucinations, lots of options, dreaming, illusion, picking and choosing, opportunities, fantasy, decisions, wishful thinking, multiple possibilities, directionless, procrastination, imagination
The Lion card represents having lots of options to choose from or multiple possibilities open to you. It can be an indication that you have so many choices or so many things going on at once that you may be overwhelmed or unable to focus properly. You need to limit the amount of things you are taking on to a manageable amount. There is no point in agreeing to do things if you can’t give them the time and attention they deserve. Try to be realistic about what you can commit to. The Lion can also signify that you may be indulging in wishful thinking, fantasies or living in a dream world. When this minor card appears in a reading, it indicates that you need to make a decision in your life and realistically look at where you are. Take proactive steps to make your situation better rather than fantasising about how you want it to be. Your imagination is a great tool to help you envision your future but it will never happen unless you take action to make it happen.
Reversed Meanings: determination, will-power, clarity, missed opportunities, poor choices, avoiding issues, lack of spiritual growth, sobriety, reality check, opportunities or options, lack of choice, reality, decisiveness, feeling trapped
The Lion card reversed can indicate that you are finding clarity and getting back to reality after a period of indulging in fantasies or living in a dream world. You may be finally starting to act decisively and to see the correct path for you clearly, having previously felt indecisive or lost. It represents getting a reality check. Alternately, when this card appears reversed in your spread it can indicate that you may have a lack of options, choices or opportunities or you may be feeling restricted or trapped in some way.
