Tarot of the Day:
Today’s card, The Chariot, also known as the Lord of the Triumph of Light, is from the Major Arcana. Each of the Major Arcana cards represents a principle in occult worship or enlightenment, with this card being the 22nd and final card of the Majors, which are numbered 0 – 21. When studying these principles, one would start with the number 0, The Fool, representing innocence, the beginning of a journey, and the initiate, and ending with number 21, The Universe. Having traveled through the theoretical concepts of Magick, therefore, one would need only to apply these principles in real life to move forward on the path of enlightenment.
The Chariot is here to symbolize a person’s soul has chosen a path to spiritual attainment. On walking the spiral staircase of knowledge, one receives a push from the Universe to take the next step in the evolutionary journey. A person on this path is generally ambitious and is now ready to ‘put their money where their mouth is’, for this journey involves the application of one’s talents and abilities on the material plane. While this path will have pitfalls and obstacles, (evil and evolution cannot exist in the same space), this card signals a level of protection as you take the ‘road less traveled’. This card also signifies a successful navigation of some rite of passage.
On the flip side, this card can symbolize a step backward in evolution if the individual is trying to reach spiritual enlightenment through outdated or long-dead cults of religion. Take a look at who or what is influencing your spiritual growth; your choice may, in fact, be holding you back. Also, this card asks you to take a look at your own ambition. Have you given up your goals to be successful at what your Truth calls you to do? Have you already decided that the safe path is the best one because dreams don’t become a reality? Challenge this theory for more growth potential in your financial and spiritual success!
May you be ready to take the Chariot to wherever your heart leads you today!
