The Chariot: Are you in the drivers seat?
We left off with the Lovers in 2016 and pick up with the Chariot in 2017. Oddly enough I ended and begin with my year cards. No way I could have planned that.
These three decks have very different versions of the Chariot and each of them create different feelings and emotions. This is a good example of if you want to bring in Chariot energy which feels like the energy you want to bring in? Which do you feel you need? Each card represents the same card in tarot but feel so different and will bring in different aspect. So much fun!
Animalis Os Fortuna
This card features a tiger and while there is not that frenetic energy to this version that you often see with most Chariots there is power. So much power contained in one being and that being has it under control and knows how to put momentum to work for it. There is a feel of danger as if you shouldn’t push this cat too far, that once you cross a line you are going to end up a post toasty. This is not the person to try and push too far the energy is going to snap back at you like a rubber band. But oh to have that power and confidence contained in you, how delicious would that be?
How do you embody your power and do you know how to use it? Where do you give your power away?
The Mythic Tarot 80’s version
We have Ares here pictured driving a chariot this is more of a traditional Rider-Waite-Smith version of this card. Ares is going he’s got wars to start and people to conquer. The momentum here feels more out of control and manic. Who is really in control is it Ares or the Horses. Maybe it is neither or both. The feeling being out of control comes to me and that aspect of running you or others over in the rush to get the goal accomplished. Ares will drive you and keep you going until you and yours are worn out and trampled.
What is out of control in your life? Where has momentum taken over and how can you get things back under your direction?
Starchild Akashic Tarot
Just look at that Unicorn and the freedom it embodies. It has this freeing quality to it that makes one want to embrace this card full heartedly. To run with because you can and for the sheer joy of it. The energy of this card still has the momentum and power that comes with the Chariot but it brings in such a joy with it. This card makes me feel spacious inside and want to bring in the joyousness this card brings into my life. There is not that feeling of getting trampled or a snap back of power but one of you have this, you can run until you are ready to stop and rest.
How can you use momentum to bring in space and ease? What would it feel like to be this free?
