The Chariot Meaning - Major Arcana - Ancient Alchemy Tarot
The Chariot card lives in the 1st house and is ruled by Aries and the planet Mars. The energy of The Chariot connects with you through the 4th Chakra.
I'm using the Marseille Tarot deck because it's the first Tarot that we know about, and it was brought to this planet by Nicolas Flamel in the 14th century. It's a tool of personal development used in the secret school of alchemy. If you have any prior experience with Tarot, I invite you to open your mind to a new way of interpreting the cards. Hopefully, this information will add up to your current knowledge.
This card is number 7 in the Tarot deck, and it is number 7 because in card 6, The Lovers, you learned to make wise decisions. And now you are ready to control your own destiny.
The card of The Chariot brings you the energy of empowerment.
Chariot, the empowered warrior
This card is the Fool who is in control of his life. See that he has a shield on his body. He is a warrior because Aries, where he lives, is the warrior.
To control his destiny, he must conquer the instinctive force of his father and mother. These forces are represented by the two horses.
You receive your DNA from your mother and father. Your number 1 mission in life is to be better than your parents, to make our species evolve.
However, your DNA comes with both positive and negative qualities. And you have to change the negative parts during your lifetime, to pass on to your descendants a better DNA (Epigenetics).
Notice that two faces are on the protagonist’s shoulder: his mother and father. He honors his parents. The first step to developing your DNA is to be grateful and honor your ancestors.
Also, as we saw in the Fool’s card, you must train and motivate your inner child because they are the 2 horses of the Chariot. And they are the ones that propel you towards positive evolution or paralyze you.
Notice that the one who rides the Chariot is a younger Emperor. The Emperor is the strategist, but he becomes the Chariot when he puts his plans into action.
The dangers in the Chariot’s way
The Chariot’s primary danger is attachment. As we saw in The Lovers, we often need to let go of people, objects, and habits to make the best choice.
A Chariot has to have a command to move forward. The greatest danger of losing control of our lives is passion.
Passion can lead us astray. When we are in love, we lose our reason. Many people can’t work well, no longer want to meet their friends, and lose focus on their studies.
Many people cross your way. If you fall in love with someone who crossed your path but is going in another direction, you will have problems.
If this person has a stronger warrior, you will have to follow them. Then you deviate from the path of your predestination. And vice versa.
No matter which one deviates from the path, problems will happen, and the relationship will not last long.
Contrary to popular belief, a love relationship is not about living the partner’s life, wants, and needs above yours.
Love is not passion. It does not need the other. True love is not for the person; it is for the pathway. You should love everyone who you encounter in your way.
But you came into the world with a mission, and the path to accomplish your mission is the most important thing you have.
Don’t deviate from that path. Be grateful for the people who cross your way, but only move forward with them as long as the tracks are in harmony. If you love the path, everything will work out fine!
Do not seek a love that you desire. True love finds you on its own!Avijeet Das
After discovering your life mission, you will find the right person and experience true love. You will find your Soul Family, for these people are walking the same path as you.
Therefore the warrior has to dominate the horses. Horses have powerful instincts. It is your inner child who falls in love because your spirit loves everyone and everything.
But if your inner child goes crazy, you get lost, making the warrior fall.
Keywords: empowerment, control, instincts, strength, paths.
Find your life mission and follow your path without attachment to anything. Love and live your purpose and…
Let the magic happen!
