The Engineer from John and Caitlin Mastthews' Steampunk Tarot is similar, but subtly different, in meaning to Strength in its earlier form. The picture shows a woman repairing a giant robot, which in turn is operating vast machinery. The description given in the book that comes with the set says that this card shows we have the strength, skills and courage to face huge and potentially scary tasks:
"Just because something is big doesn't make it monstrous. Giving it your power by allowing your fears prominence would be self-defeating. The coin of fear, when face-uppermost, locks down power; when the flip side of the coin is uppermost, then power is in control. In this brave new world, the Engineer enables you to calmly find power to cope with things with conviction and courage. But she also understands exactly when to acknowledge that things can't always be done alone. Machines require respect, or else they will become your masters and you their slave. When you connect to the power within, you can be encouraged and supported."
You can view the Steampunk Tarot - Wisdom from the Gods of the Machine on Amazon and read my earlier review of the deck.
