The essence of this card to me is that everyone wins who learns from life's lessons - rebirth is the result, not punishment (as in call to final judgement and sentencing to heaven or hell).

I like the fact that the woman appears youthful and strong although she has white hair - a sign of age. She has gained much strength and wisdom from her life lessons, spiritual growth.

Her hands are in the sign language of love as in "I love you." the fires of purification have transformed her (as in the phoenix) and calmed her spirit so she is wiser and stronger than ever.

Remember in the movie Harry Potter, the phoenix flamed and became ashes and then was reborn; its tears were healing. It was also red, the color of courage.

The beams of light behind the woman indicated illumination/enlightenment radiating from her soul/heart.
