The Hero
Strength ~ Courage ~ Unconditional Love

taken from the Heart of Faerie Oracle

The Hero is heroism as a feminine force; 
not how we usually think of the word.

We can accept women as heroes, but we bestow male attributes on them to make them fit 
our idea of what is heroic: 
courage to fight, wisdom to "do the right thing" whatever it takes, and the drive to continue on against the odds. 

Xena, an amazing heroine 
Now, just for a moment, think of love as a heroic force.

Think of the love of a mother for her children.

Now think on a larger scale.

Think of the love for the earth.

Think of love that lets us accept the differences in people 
and the beliefs around us.

Think of love that is truly unconditional.

That is heroism.

That is the single thing that truly 
overcomes obstacles in our word and in Faerie.

It isn't easy.

It isn't always comfortable, 
and it certainly isn't always fun, but it is heroic.

So if you draw this card, be a hero.

Try practicing unconditional love.

Peace, Inspiration, & Love,
