There is a woman with a lemniscate over her head. There is also a lion present.
The Fool feels arrogant and proud. He feels that he can win over his enemies very easily and has this hot passion in him that he can barely keep. At this point of time, he sees a maiden who is struggling with a lion. The Fool wanted to reach forward and help but sees that the maiden had gently, but firmly shut the lion’s mouth. The lion which had appeared so fierce and untamed then appears to be very gentle now.
Interested to know how the maiden managed to tame the lion, the Fool went up to the maiden. The maiden indicated that “will power” is a strong force and that any beast, no matter how strong, will back down before a superior will. The maiden looks at the Fool and tells the Fool that having impulses is not a wrong deed. However, it will be wrong to let the impulses control a person. The energy to control these impulses can make a person more superior.
