The Chariot

the chariot, tarot cards, tarot instruction

An erect and princely figure carrying a drawn sword and
corresponding, broadly speaking, to the traditional
description which I have given in the first part. On the
shoulders of the victoriotts hero are supposed to be the
Urim and Thummim, He has led captivity captive; he Is
conquest on all planes-in the mind, in science, in progress,
in certain trials of initiation.

An erect and princely figure carrying a drawn sword and
corresponding, broadly speaking, to the traditional
description which I have given in the first part. On the
shoulders of the victoriotts hero are supposed to be the
Urim and Thummim, He has led captivity captive; he Is
conquest on all planes-in the mind, in science, in progress,
in certain trials of initiation.

He has thus replied to the Sphinx, and it is on this account
that I have accepted the variation of Eliphas Levi; two
sphinxes thus draw his chariot.    He is above all things
triumph in the mind.

It is to be understood for this reason

(a) that the question of the sphinx is concerned with a
Mystery of Nature and not of the world of Grace, to which
the charioteer could offer no answer;

(b) that the planes of his conquest are manifest or external
and not within himself;

(c) that the liberation which he effects may leave himself
in the bondage of the logical understanding;

(d) that the tests of initiation through which he has passed
in triumph are to be understood physically or rationally and

(e) that if he came to the pillars of that Temple between
which the High Priestess is seated, he could-not open the
scroll called Tom, nor if she questioned him could he
answer.

He is not hereditary royalty and he is not priesthood.
