Thoth Deck Tarot: Key 7-THE CHARIOT

 In the Thoth Deck Key 7-The Chariot, the Cancer Crab stands on the Knights Helm, referring to the zodiacal sign of Cancer, into which the Sun moves  at the summer solstice. Cancer is the cardinal sign of Water, shown as blue above and below the charioteer..Cancer not only represents the first on rush of the element water, but is also represents the Path Cheth (meaning fence or enclosure) that leads from the Great Mother Binah (understanding) to Geburah (Severity), on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. The Chariot represents the Veil of Water ( which is blood)  in which the energy of the Supernal (The Trinity) descends on the energy of mankind as Prana and  inspires the "spirit within".  This card supports the old axiom," ...The Know is in the Flow" and helps us realize the value of Prana Yama (Yoga breath) breathing,.
The canopy of the Charioteer, is of the sky blue, both the color of water and of the color of the Great Gnostic Sophia and/or Binah, in her Wisdom state of energy conscious. The four pillars of the canopy, represent the Pillars of the Universe while the Scarlet wheels represent the original energy of Geburah (the cleansing menstrual blood of the Goddess)that causes the revolving motion in the Universe. The four Sphinxes that are drawing the Chariot, have the heads of the Four Kerubs, The Bull, The Lion, The Eagle and The Man. They actually represent the 16 sub-elements rather than just four, since in each Sphinx these elements are counter-changed. The amber-gold armor of the Charioteer represents the sign of Cancer,  The reins are not in his hands because  he is throned in the Chariot rather than conducting it as the whole system is in perfect balanced and his only function is to bear the Holy Grail. This Grail looks like a  Blue and Red Chakra in his hands, as both colors represent the One Womb of the Blue Binah and the Red Geburah. The design of the Ten Stars of Assiah sits upon his chest as an inheritance of the celestial dew of the Mother.
Cancer maybe known as the House of the Moon but Jupiter is also exalted in Cancer. This concept is illustrated as the color of  Amethyst that rings the Grail. The Shape of the Grail represents the Full Moon  and the Great Sea of Binah. Spiritual life is inferred by the radiant blood -red in the center of the Grail: light in the darkness of the Womb. Again, studying the individual symbols will lead to a greater understanding of the whole. The Charioteer looks the masculine part he is, but this card is of the Goddess as Binah and Geburah which are both receptive (female) and expressive (male). One will find that in the Gnostic Qabalah, both sexes are insuperable, where there is She, there is He and visa versa. The Chariot is the mystical Merkabah , the Chariot that carries the Throne of God  in the visions of Ezekiel. The Throne is stable and unmoving, while the Chariot  descends on the Revolving wheels of Geburah.
 Arcana means secret and/or mystery and the Major Arcana (Key Cards) are deeply embedded in mysterious secrets buried in the imagery of time long past while being totally relevant to  today, requiring much study. " To know thyself, is to know God". describes the mystery of the Qabalah.
When this card is thrown during a reading the querent is or will be  soon experiencing , health, success, triumph, and victory. All of which shall be a combination of stillness and activity. There is a principle of self mastery through change and movement towards a goal.
In other words, winning one's own way. Self confidence that propels one to victory.  In the next 7 weeks or 7 months, the querent will be making changes in their job,or home or travel,.
If the accompanying cards are ill defined, then none of the afore mentioned qualities will be stable and all will be short lived.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you and yours live long and prosper!

Thank you for your comment and humor. I am glad you like it...and to think I am taming down my teaching for the general public! I love to argue, for I call it debate, so have at me! May you live long and prosper.

Do you associate this card with Plato's theory of the 3 parts of the Soul? Thank you in advance, you're incredibly insightful.

Hi Bella! Great observation. You'll notice that the Qabalistic Tree of Life is triangles and/or 3. The Chariot Card does indeed fulfill one aspect of the soul-the Spirited part or Thymoeides of Plato's Tripartite theory of Soul. It is our defender, and when it gets "angry", as if a great guardian angel, it defends the person with great spiritual fire. You are very good at insights. Thank you for being a dedicated reader. I shall do my best to keep up with you! May you live long and prosper.
