The Fool Sees The Chariot
As The Fool continues his journey, he happens upon a chariot outside of a walled city. But not just any chariot, The Chariot driven by an armored driver pulled by two sphinx.
On his shoulder plates are waxing and waning crescent moons, he has a laurel wreath crown with an 8 pointed star, showing his connection to divine will.
See those stars above his head on that canopy?
The sky is the limit, baby. Wrapped in mysticism he symbolizes movement. He is victorious and although his cats aren’t hooked up yet, we can see the potential for moving into the future. The black and the white sphinx, representing duality, are ready to pull in opposite directions, but he has the strength to move his chariot in any direction he wants with both working together.
He has the magick wand in his hand. He’s controlling both his moral and rational thoughts, because they don’t just naturally work together with our primal instincts. We have to get it together to make them work together. We all have the wand in our hand.
See that city behind him protected by whose walls? He is venturing out of his safe and comfy place and has his intuition to rely on. He’s ready to rock.
That symbol on the front of his ride? That’s the winged sun disc of the Greek God Helios, who drives his chariot across the sky. Upon it we see yoni and lingam symbols, representing the union of the feminine and masculine. To me, it always struck me that it sort of looked like a baby’s pacifier.
His message to The Fool?
You choose where you want to go. You’re in control of this forklift, the obstacles will soon be removed and your road opens. Carry on, my wayward son. Get control and drive. Success awaits.
Get in the car, son and put on some Rhianna and just shut up and drive!
