While I totally agree with the reading of this card of finding our own identity, not based on societal expectations but on our own personal truth, I also cannot help but turn it around - who here is fooling whom? If the lion believes he is a sheep until shown the way, equally the sheep here could view the lion as another sheep (the traditional wolf in sheep's clothing). He looks the same as he has adopted the sheep's skin on top of his own skin, he will smell the same, he obviously is going to behave the same - until it is time to leap out. The sheep have a false sense of security. Or, of course, they do not see / recognise the jewel in their midst.
I also like this card - I find it has layers within layers within layers, and encourages focussed thinking and consideration.
