Today’s guidance card: The Chariot


The Chariot

(We discussed the Chariot before, too.)

Whew, what a card!  This beautiful image is from the deck of Verena Heinrich’s tarot.  It reminds vividly of the fantasy of Marion Zimmer-Bradley, ‘The Mists of Avalon’, ‘The Forest House’ and so on.

A young girl is riding through a foggy forest at night, riding a carriage drawn by two horses.  In traditional tarot, one animal should be white and the other, black, representing the forces pulling you in opposite directions (the light path; the dark path).  But in this version they are both fairly dark in colour.

The environment, too, is quite hostile.  Can she see where she is going?  Is she lost?

Keywords:

  • Life path
  • leadership
  • balance of forces
  • stay in control

What it means:

Keep calm, keep driving through what seems to be a very dark patch of your life.  The path may not be clear; you may not be quite certain where you are going, but right now, motion is key.  You need to stay moving.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I have a clear goal?
  • Do I know what actions I must take?
  • Am I moving ahead?  Am I doing the steps I set myself?
  • Is it working?  Am I getting closer to my goal?

Have you written your goal down?

Do you have an action list (on paper)?

Have you set yourself a schedule by when to have done each step?

Revise:  Do your action steps need to be improved?

To do right now:

Take a piece of paper, or better, your year planner (yes, the one we never use properly) and write on it:

  • Your large goal with a date
  • things that need to happen for it to come about
  • dates by when you want to do each step

Put this plan next to your computer.

Stick a copy on or next to your mirror so you can see it every morning.

Take the first (or, next) step right now.

  1. I have Mars in the first house. So, my Chariot is always on the move!

  2. I forgot to add that Mars in Cancer, and Cancer ASC in natal chart. You know what that means, it’s like the chariot scene in the movie, Ben Hur!
