Chariot from the Soulscapes Tarot

(Moon) Outward personality, heritage and family lines, childrearing, limelight, deep personal feelings, responsibilities, personal space. July (dog days Sirius rising)

On the Soulscapes version of the Chariot one of the first things that we notice is that the central figure is a warrior wearing armour, and a helmet, is carrying a spear and is poised ready for something.

Is it battle?

This particular figure is drawn by the power of two sphinx like creatures, one black and one white presenting a mystery that is to be solved regarding the opposing natures of war and peace.

The canopy behind the head with the stars upon it represents the state of bliss or nirvana that we can reach through deep meditation and the cube within which the figure sits is indicative of the four elements in which we live out our earthly existence.

On the Soulscape Chariot you can see the full moon emblazoned on the front of the chariot and underneath there is a solar disc with wings that has two ureas serpents coming out of it. This symbolism was used by the Egyptians and can suggest the need for balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain and the awakening of hidden senses within.

If we understand the Solar aspect of personality being that which is awake or switched on, and the lunar aspect of consciousness as being that which is unconscious, or that we are unaware of it until we find a way to reach this information through meditation and ritual.
