Interpreting this card on a intuitive level, The Chariot is about decision, trying to get from one place to another, moving forward safely, and surely. It is about weighing the pros and cons, harnessing the oppositional forces between knowing what I should do, what I want to do and about discernment.
I am no different than any one in that, I fight with myself, can be my own worse enemy, self-sabotaging my intentions and plans. The old adage of 'The road to hell is paved with good intentions' comes immediately to mind."
I have been re-reading and trying hard to not simply grasps the concepts, but the many truths in The Heroines Journey, Women's Quest For Wholeness, by Maureen Murdoch. I want to actualize these truths in my life, so as to lessen the fights I have with myself in order to become whole, mind, body and spirit.
Like The Fool this is the journey of life, and I am at a new chapter. I know this deep in my soul. If I do not begin this journey it is to deny all that is youthful, creative, and that which is greater than myself.
