The fear is conquered! The Princess of Wands, naked, open, unprotected, has vanquished the tiger of fear (see The Fool). He r staff bears the symbol of the Sun. The feathers on her head indicate her increased perception and sense of justice which she has gained by overcoming her fear.
She dances her ecstatic dance in a huge flame. Beside her, on an altar ornamented with rams’ heads, the fire of Spring, new beginnings, burns high.

Our self-limiting fears, the tiger’s corpse, can be buried and forgotten.
