HP Tarot - 7 The Chariot



(2008) 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" Pencil on Paper. Processed and framed in Photoshop.

"The Chariot" stands for the hero setting out on his quest. Traditionally it shows a figure encased in armor atop a chariot drawn by sphinxes. So it was fairly easy to jump from there to the Hogwarts Express, the "chariot" for young wizards and witches to take them out on their quest, to learn about magic and about themselves. Incidentally this is also the first card that does not feature a figure or figures.

In a draw "The Chariot" indicates an intense drive forward to accomplish something. There is little openness to accept a deviation from the course, and the impulse comes all from the inside - from inside the armor. Ultimately the hero will be challenged on his quest, he will need to halt, to open himself and to learn, but not yet.

The lesson is to harness the drive, but also not to ride roughshod over obstacles and not to fear failure so much.

Freaky - the moment this loaded on my screen, a train with billowing white steam appeared in the movie I'm watching. O_o Think someone's trying to tell me something? ....
