Tarot card number 7 is called The Chariot, symbolic of the depth of nurturing Lunar folks offer. The Chariot is the director of his own destiny so long as he stays focused along his path. He is in control and holds rein on his feelings. He leads the way with unwavering focus, ambition, and determination. It is apparent he is anxious to be where he wants to go, which isn’t always where he needs to be. Sometimes this focus and determination is detrimental. It is important to look up from time to time and attend to what is going on around, andthat doesn't have to be distracting. Overly ambitious, excessive desire to pursue a goal “at any cost” may result in “not seeing the forest from the trees”, and may actually sabotage one’s goals rather than achieve them!
The black and white Sphinx’s on this card are symbolic of opposing forces that may require careful blending. Each color wants to move in a different direction and it is the Charioteer’s job to prevent this with his powers of concentration, focus, and determination. Sometimes decisions are made with black and white thinking rather than accepting shades of gray. Balance and compromise to the middle ground is required when this card appears. Being sensitive to the feelings of others, creative problem solving, and keeping emotions in check with one's intellect are symbolic of Chariot.
When Chariot appears, there is a sense of blending yin and yang, feminine and masculine energies.
