Daily Draw: Miss Cleo Tarot ~ The Chariot

Fred Gettings book, Tarot, explains the Chariot card as the driver representing the mind, the cart representing the body, and the means of locomotion representing the emotions. If these three things are working together our future can be rosy, if one or more are not under control the future is bleak.

I can see this cart is headed for trouble because the driver/mind is trying to drive the lion/locomotion by the tail. The locomotion will become commotion and there will be a big dust-up beside the road. This charioteer is going nowhere fast yet you can see he thinks he has the world by the tail.

He reminds me of the faces we put on to the world. We have a face for work, one for church, one for parties, one for funerals. All the faces are us but when do we get to be a cohesive unit? Are we ever? Humans are so complex it is a wonder that so many of us do get the mind/body/emotions mix in good proportion. I forgot 3 important things yesterday, I could stand some exercise, I'm frequently moody. The chariot today indicates some self-work is in order.

"No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which one is true." ~ Nathanial Hawthorne 1804-1864
