Tarot – The Chariot – The Balanced Ego
Out of nowhere the chariot raced towards me. Drawn by two Sphinxes – one black, one white, symbolising positive and negative energies. On the Charioteer’s shield a winged orb. Many more symbols caught my eye. The voice returned “Face the charioteer. He has potential set alight by determination. He risks nothing and everything, he is oblivious to earthly illusions. He thinks he is the victor though in fact he has yet to conquer time. The Sphynx watch always. Let down your guard at your peril. You must make mistakes to learn the ultimate lessons that are available to you at this moment in time. Are you ready for this test ?” The chariot clattered past and I was left to reflect on the fiery sky.
My warrior commands his war chariot drawn by two Sphinxes. One white, one black. Notice the reigns he holds are not controlling the course of his journey. Can he take control over this destiny?
He is on a quest to control all aspects of his personality. The winged symbol on the chariot represents the male and female aspects of his personality. The celestial symbols on his shield show his preoccupation with spiritual advancement rather than the physical world that he leaves in his path.
The Chariot represents your life choices. Will you choose wisely and follow the right course? The Chariot. Escape your earthly binds, release your higher self.
