"Jung says that the fiery lion – a passionate emotion – is a preliminary stage to the realization of the unconscious contents. So it is absolutely necessary to brave the lion, that is, to overcome one's emotions before one can enter the unconscious, or eternity."
"We see the lion here as the terrible side of God following the idea of the greatest heat in the zodiac. Jung compares the lion of Judah to the passage about actual fire, and indeed these are the passages he often quotes to show that facing an encounter with the Self needs downright heroism."
"Standing the fire of the emotions is the one thing that gets one near to the fire of the psychological Self. Some people, of course,  have a strong moral sense and then the fire means accepting the shadow."
– Barbara Hannah, The Archetypal Symbolism of Animals
