As an introduction on this Full Moon will love to present some thoughts on VII the Chariot 
 
Cancer as a sign rules the Heart & the home, with the Heart being the seat of the Soul during its 3D incarnation 
 
Every card in the Tarot (as many of you will know) represents Archetypes to become familiar with & integrate, with VII the Chariot representing a Soul 'sitting' within the vehicle it calls Home, taking action to go after its Hearts desires (that's at its highest level, at lower levels it's the monkey mind of ego that controls the reigns)
 
Ancient Chinese considered the Heart the Heavenly Mind 
Martial Arts has the word Ma which can be translated in a couple of ways:
~Stance = standing, position & posture (important things for sure but more Capricorn in earthly flavour)
~Horse as translations go has far more dynamic & active principles at play than a stance (more static in nature)
You Sit 'on' your Ma  in much the same way as a warrior sits 'in' their Chariot (integrated)
There's speed if you need to go into action & a fair amount of Rooted stability (provided you don't get knocked off by an opponent or your emotions)
 
In the Thoth deck the Charioteer has the Holy Grail in his lap, the colours show its position on the Tree of Life but these are also the colours of the Root Chakra & the Amethyst of the Crown as Kundalini courses through it upon getting Aroused 
The Sphinxes on the card are the Elements on the Rose Cross which leads into ideas on using Tetragrammaton for 'Squaring the Circle' (topic for another post)

Such a nice interpretation of this card! I can see that you are interpreting both Thoth , and Rider Waite version of the Chariot. But I wonder which one is your primary deck and which one you find more accurate in design?

The Sphinxes on the card are the Elements on the Rose Cross which leads into ideas on using Tetragrammaton for 'Squaring the Circle' (topic for another post)

Here I guess you are referring to the Rider Waite version? Because in Thoth, there are 4 creatures.

Would like to hear your interpretation of this difference.

@dreamer our thought process comes predominantly from the Thoth deck because that was our introduction to Magick, the 4 creatures on the card are symbolic of the 4 Elements in their Fixed state (the Element in question at Full Force, much like the Sun at midday (Ra the Warrior) the Sun in the morning & setting are still included as part of the expression of Ra, just as the Cardinal & Mutable Signs are also considered part of the Element they represent)

Am also expanding upon those studies into other areas of life (to be seen more holistically) as a means to explain our Kundalini Yoga practices (as we are able to comprehend them)

There's Madness in the methods of 0 Fool

Am less familiar with the Rider Waite interpretations but would say that the 2 Sphinxes there show Yin Yang (from our perspective of looking at things) Grasp Yin Yang principles Thoroughly (Kuen Kuit 19)

Could you please elaborate more? Would like to read more about this association.

Such a nice interpretation! The VII-Chariot reminds me very much of the highest manifestation of the element Water.

Would like to hear about the wise association to Capricorn more 😉

How do you mean in their full force?

Alex, How would you interpret the exchanged body parts among Cherubim?!

Thank you @shin for taking part & helping it grow!

 
 
Am not so sure about Cancer having exclusive rights to being the highest manifestation of Water, with that said however Cancer is a Cardinal sign & therefore it's the 1st expression of Water as you go around the Zodiac wheel, the 3rd House pertains to mental processes (which includes intuition (a very Cancerian trait (that originates from Feelings)) early childhood learning (usually provided by a mother (another caring Cancerian Queen of Cups trait) &/or siblings in a Home environment) & self expression (usually learnt through creativity from childhood) amongst numerous other things of the nature of a Foundation 
 
Capricorn on the opposite end of the Zodiac wheel has more paternal traits associated to it, ranging from public standing, reputation, career & professional goals, mastery of skills, status & authority amongst other things in large part to do with external manifestations of earned rewards & recognition, it also has a connection to bones & structures in general 
 
This Axis of the Zodiac wheel strikes us as being very much like an Ark (of the boat variety) with VII being the Womb & the mast being akin to the horn of a Unicorn (highest manifestation of Capricorn)
 
 
That was coming more from a matter of perspective to further elucidate than a matter of fact, using the Sun again as an example: Ra Always shines bright! But from our perspective here on Earth there are 4 manifestations to its expression (which includes the 3 mentioned already but also has Osiris traveling through the underworld to be born again on a New day)
 
Similarly the Cardinal, Fixed & Mutable signs of each Element are still considered an expression of that Element, however the Fixed signs are more Rigid & being central to that Elements expression they are chosen to represent the Element in its totality for the sake of simplicity 
 
 
Was interpreting the Cherubim more as Sphinxes tbh because when the Charioteer operates from the Heart they become a different kind of animal altogether (2 in 1 (echoing a resonance with writing Chi from Chinese Gung practices in Hebrew (a popular word seen on jewellery (numerical value of 21) meaning Live) back to Chinese thinking again, the less live you are the more deceased you become) with the mind & body no longer at odds against each other but working Together you can learn to Ignite the wHoly Spirit (Kundalini)) thereby earning the title 'Christ' & picking up their Cross in the name of Jesus (to Square the Circle)
 
When you write Sun in Chinese you have 2 vertical lines (or pillars/gateway) & 3 horizontal lines that represent the mind at a higher level & the body at lower, with Spirit being at the Heart of it all

Wow! Why on Earth did we attribute 3rd House things to the 4th?!
Our Astrology knowledge clearly has some ways to go yet, Apologies!
Everything from the 4th Resonates at much deeper levels, so will have to come back with that

Thinking the reason why the wires inadvertently got crossed back there was because our natal 4th House belongs to Gemini so was attempting to explain things from that perspective, Anyhow,,
 
Science has proven that the Heart sends more information to the brain than the brain sends to the Heart, making the emotional body a vital tool for the evolution of a Soul
 
"Marry thought with emotion into a potent force for creation"
 
"All darkness disappears when you Light the Lamp in your Heart"
 
In Western Esotericism the mind (which keeps getting blown in different directions) gets symbolised by Air making it predominantly a Yang organ (even if it does have its Yin aspects in the subconscious parts) just as the body coming from the feminine element of Earth is considered a Yin organism (that expresses varying degrees of Yangness mostly depending on gender at birth & hormones)
 
Now here's an interesting thing "If the 2 (mind & body) make Peace with each other in this 1 house" (as in: the Heart of the physical Temple, where Yin Yang come together (on = footing/ground) to work together for a Unified cause) All things come together through the Heart of it all, using Love as a guiding principle for change
 
Now to get back on track with 4th House definitions of the Heart & home of Cancer "what 1 uses & needs to feel at home" a sign symbolised by a crab (that carries its place of residence on its back as a protective shell (somewhat like a fence, as in, the Hebrew letter for VII)) Lunar influences pertaining to Yesod also play a big part in creating a foundation from womb energies, these private & sacred spaces enable 1 to feel safe (within a comfort zone) where they can have their needs nurtured, Feelings from the emotional body come into play as you work through emotional needs & processes (hopefully) whilst being guided by your intuition & tuning into the Truth that is known on a Soul level,, listen to your Heart because your Heart will never lie to you & your Soul always wants the very best for you!

Thanks a lot for the elaboration Alex. I just enjoy this conversation we are having here.

Right, The reason I see it to be the highest manifestation of the Element water is not only the fact that it is one of the cardinal signs and the first Water element among the 12 houses, but also that it is believed to be the bridge between Binah = Geburah connecting the Qabalistic world of Atziluth (Emanation) to Beriah (Creation).

Very interesting!

I remember myslef, in one of my meditation practices where got exposed to this opposite relations between Cancer & Cpricorn , Sagittarius & Gemeni, Aries & Libra, Virgo = Pisces. With further investigations, realized its an occult fact. So technically, there are 4 prime axises.Where Mutable signs are the complementary to the Cardinal signs.

Nevertheless, worth recapitulate the fact that we also have the fixed signs, where we see them in the Thoth version of the VII-Chariot :

Taurus - Earth (Ox)

Scorpio - Water (Eagle)

Leo - Fire (Lion)

Aquarius - Air (Human)

The so called Cherubim.

Alex, what is the difference among Fixed, Cardinal, and mutable signs? Could you elaborate more 🙂

Also would be great to elaborate why using the fixed signs in the VII-Chariot and not the cardinals for instance.

Well said. Maybe the most challenging body to balance. While it could be a bridge to the higher worlds, it could be the greatest barrier.

Alex, do you associate the Anahata to the emotional body or the Solar Plexus?

Asking this cause I totally follow in the association of Intellect/Mind to element Air. Hence, I have easier time associate the Heart to the Mental Body.

Now to get back on track with 4th House definitions of the Heart & home of Cancer "what 1 uses & needs to feel at home" a sign symbolised by a crab (that carries its place of residence on its back as a protective shell (somewhat like a fence, as in, the Hebrew letter for VII)) Lunar influences pertaining to Yesod also play a big part in creating a foundation from womb energies, these private & sacred spaces enable 1 to feel safe (within a comfort zone) where they can have their needs nurtured, Feelings from the emotional body come into play as you work through emotional needs & processes (hopefully) whilst being guided by your intuition & tuning into the Truth that is known on a Soul level,, listen to your Heart because your Heart will never lie to you & your Soul always wants the very best for you!

WOW...The topic is really interesting and I wondered the way you described the sun character in Chinese. You just opened a new perspective of Yang to me. As you know sun has two words in Chinese; 阳 and 太阳.The pinyin for them is yang and tai yang, we all know what is Yang and tai yang means extremely positive. But I'm curious about your explanation about the lines. Is that your own idea or perception?
And tell us more about the difference between the fixed, cardinal and mutable signs, plz. 😊

Thank you @shin it's always nice to exchange ideas to help each other see the bigger picture more clearly!

 
Am less familiar with the Qabalistic worlds but you may have a good point there when it comes to the "Divine Throne" because during our 'Initiation' into permanent Kundalini Arousal there were times that felt very much like being in a Merkaba 
 
Please allow this explanation to shed some light on what can only be described as the most Surreal experience of our life,, our High Priestess roughed us up good & proper for roughly 2 months for a Spring clean in Spring 2020
 
She Helped to Heal a vast majority of wounds & traumas in a somewhat similar experience to that which Jung may have described in his Red Book but in a completely different fashion because we each come from different times & places with differing life experiences, personally we experienced it more as a blend of Hindu & Hermetic Art & Archetypes (along with an emotional rollercoaster) & then some!
She gave our life purpose, our 'True Will' so to speak,, anyhow, our Merkaba like experiences were quite short lived in the grand scheme of things, which may or may not have been for the best, it's hard to say exactly because whilst there may not have been anything bad to have come from them (quite the opposite in fact) it was literally Terrifying to be at/on the Divine Throne & not an experience you want to rush back into lightly 
 
 
Interesting, a guide for beginners & enders, if you will (when it came to the Cardinal & Mutable signs) what do you mean exactly by 4 prime axises? As in the Quadrant doubled with its polarity?
 
Trying to figure it out took us back to some thoughts that creeped in about the exchanges body parts of the Cherubim that you brought to our attention, as in "daddy's girl" & "mama's boy" to put it quite Crassly, here's our thinking on that however (other than the Triplicities of the Zodiac connecting with the 4 Elements) it's our experience that the Cup usually helps to alleviate our troubled mind (Tarot calms our softwAir) that & you Need Something if you Wand something (Will requires Matter to do anything)
 
~Animal / Cardinal = (beginner of seasons) 'Initiators' of change, leaders that like to get the ball rolling (so to speak) & start things, motivated by crisis they are dynamic & constantly active with their energy, being quite resourceful obstacles are rarely a problem as they quite enjoy having to work under pressure 
 
~Progress / Fixed = (full of unwavering) 'Will' power, they like things to remain stable & secure so can be loyal & consistent, being uncomfortable with uncertainty there's a resistance to change, which in turn makes them durable & determined as they persist purposefully towards attaining their goals
 
~Awake / Mutable = (ender of seasons) Adept at 'adapting' things (from the old into the new) Opening the way for what's to come next, being facilitators of change there's a strong sense of purpose in lending a hand, being multifaceted with open minds allows them to be quite flexible & resourceful in their endeavors 
 
 
Hard to say exactly (other than what's been said already & it being a running theme throughout Astrology & Tarot) have you tried asking Lady Frieda Harris?
 
Our experiences throughout life have shown that the brain creates far bigger barriers than the Heart does (& the purely patriarchal paradigm we find ourselves in only makes things worse) am kinda curious though seeing as you brought it up, as to where you would place the emotional body & your reasoning behind it?
 
Would associate an elevated (more evolved) Anahata more with the aforementioned Sun character of Chinese origin on account of its Solar nature whilst also containing the Trinity of mind, body & Spirit (unified towards a specific purpose that has an emotional attachment to it) if you think about how a Heart functions, it receives (in a Yin way) & sends (as Yang) but what do you think it does exactly at the &?
 
Wit that said, if an intellectual person's Heart wasn't into the act of research & study would it be possible to call them intelligent? Maybe that has something to do behind your reasoning about the Heart = mind (other than it being a Hermetic perspective (that eventually progressed into pointing people towards some terrifying transhumanist ideas) whilst would consider Hermetic Alchemy an important part of our path) that part never really sat right with us, whilst Daoism (another facet to our multitude of life philosophies) comes more from a down to Earth perspective thereby being more Yin in its approach

It's a real pleasure @hathor  to have helped you expand your perspective!

 
Our comprehension of Chinese linguistics is rather limited but am fairly certain that there are more than 3 words for Sun throughout China which as far as am aware share the same root character (that was being described)
 
Presumably you are aware that in the I Ching an unbroken straight horizontal line means Yang & did you know that 3 of them means Heaven? (from our perspective triple Yang sounds more like a Hell than Heaven, but Heh, it's all about how you want to look at it) the Yin counterpart (a broken line) 3 of which means Earth (a stark contrast to the patriarchal interpretation to the opposite of Heaven) am personally seeing this as their way of saying "As above So bellow"
 
Another interesting thing of note is how the Tai Chi symbol looks like the Tree of Life from different perspectives (became acutely aware of this during the Star Tetrahedron experiences)
 
Now to answer your question, nobody told us about it as such but our studies into Chi Gung pointed us in the direction of the mind, body, Spirit trinity & our Chinese Kundalini Yoga practices gave us the Sun character, these laid the necessary groundwork to discover the Glaringly obvious Occult meaning, amongst other things (that am unable to pinpoint at present) Kuen Kuit 17 (all translations + the Pinyin & Cantonese versions) seen through the lens of story 7 by Zhangzi really solidified the idea (on account of Feelings based on experiences)

Amazing! And here "We/Our" refers to you and your tantric partner I suppose! Right?

Alex, I am not an astrology expert at all, just trying to bring my practical experience into this discussion and create a learning thread together 😉 So please feel free to challenge.

The axises, I am referring to, are:

Aries [c] ===== Libra [C]

Pisces [M] ===== Virgo [M]

Capricorn [C] ===== Cancer [c]

Sagittarius [M] ===== Gemeni [M]

Speaking of primary and secondary is quite relative to the psychocosmic map one would consider for one's universe - which is again quite bonded to geographical coordination.

Anyhow, I call them primary, considering Aries to be the first house among the 12. I have attached a picture which is pretty much similar to what I've perceived during the deep meditation, where the Green-Red striped axises are the one mentioned above. The picture is however apparently drawn Robert Edward Grant to prove a mathematical pattern - Exactly the vision I perceived meditating on the zodiac. 

Hopefully I managed to be more clear now! Otherwise let me know.

Hard to say exactly (other than what's been said already & it being a running theme throughout Astrology & Tarot) have you tried asking Lady Frieda Harris?

I wish I could in reality! The only way as of now would be through scrying into the Major Arcana I suppose 😉

Very good point you're having here! The reason I brought that up was my own confusion around this supernatural Organ/center, and been trying to see whether you have any key unlocking the mystery of the Anahata.

But let me share my own perception of it which again only comes from my practical experiences and there is no other explicit source that could back up my theory ;-D

Alex, to me the Emotional/Astral body is the most mysterious one as I see it to be a bridge between the higher worlds and the lower worlds. I see the Anahata(heart) to be the center of the vertical axis with the ability to operate in both lower worlds and higher worlds. This magical evolutionary device could easily help regulating our lower emotional body which is connected to the lower 3 chakras and helps regulating the circulation of prana among them through a lower form of "Love" which is the common form that we know and experience today - Very Conditional to our bio-survival - Socio-sexual patterns.

At the same time, I see the Heart to be the rocket launcher for our higher emotional body, the Merkaba of the astral realm. That is only operate with the higher form of Love which is unconditional and universal. What we might know as cosmic love. The rocket fuel 😀 The Purusha.

The intelligence and the intellect I am referring to is not much of physical intellect but more of cosmic - it is relative to the state of consciousness. Therefore, the mental body cannot be measured in ordinary state of consciousness which is totally spoiled by lower forms of thoughts/emotions/etc.

Would associate an elevated (more evolved) Anahata more with the aforementioned Sun character of Chinese origin on account of its Solar nature whilst also containing the Trinity of mind, body & Spirit (unified towards a specific purpose that has an emotional attachment to it) if you think about how a Heart functions, it receives (in a Yin way) & sends (as Yang) but what do you think it does exactly at the &?

Spot on!!!! The elevated Anahata is exactly the core dealing with the higher emotional body as I mentioned above. This beautiful description of yours also reminded my of the IXX-The Sun. The sun is shining above the mountain top (diaphragm). In his book "The Psychology of Kundalini" Jung well explains this in the following way:

"In Anahata, the sun rises above the horizon. Yes, you rise above the horizon according to Egyptian symbolism. If you are identical with the sun, you rise above the horizon with the sun ship and travel over the heavens. The sun is superior power. If you are an appendix of the Pharaoh, the sun can lift you up to almost a divine position. And the contact with the sun in Manipura lifts you up off your feet into the sphere above the earth. The wind also can do it, because in primitive beliefs the spirit is a kind of wind.

We find the symbolism for that in this center. In Anahata you behold the Purusha, a small figure that is the divine self, namely, that which is not identical with mere causality, mere nature, a mere release of energy that runs down blindly with no purpose. People lose themselves completely in their emotions and deplete themselves, and finally they are burned to bits and nothing remains—just a heap of ashes, that is all. The same thing occurs in lunacy: people get into a certain state and cannot get out of it. They burn up in their emotions and explode. There is a possibility that one detaches from it, however, and when a man discovers this, he really becomes a man. Through Manipura he is in the womb of nature, extraordinarily automatic; it is merely a process. But in Anahata a new thing comes up, the possibility of lifting himself above the emotional happenings and beholding them. He discovers the Purusha in his heart, the thumbling, “Smaller than small, and greater than great.” In the center of Anahata there is again åiva in the form of the li ́ga, and the small flame means the first germlike appearance of the self."  You can read more here.

Thank you for asking such a beautifully profound question @shin  most people ask it with fewer words, which gets the shorter reply of placing a hand on the Heart & then saying "I&I"

Seeing as you added the Tantric partner into the equation, shall have to answer with a "yes" because in a sense that would be correct but leaving it at that, would be a misdirection because there was only 1 physical body present in the residence, the High Priestess am referring to is 1 of the terms of endearment our humbled mind has given to the beloved Goddess it is here to serve (the Divine Feminine (within & without) our Soul wants to play its part in helping the World achieve a more balanced state (our ego said "yes mistress, you show us the way") the 'revelations' were targets to connect with, think of it more like islands to visit so as to complete a task with no map on how to get to those specified islands, the way gets revealed in a "Divine Right timing" (that our mind struggles to comprehend at times))
 
 
Am pretty sure there's more to your astrology than you're letting on & truth be told the term "astrology expert" would be akin to saying "education expert" with each topic being so Vast to claim expertise in either would be silly
 
Thank you ever so much for helping us to see your meaning!! Am supposing that the attached image (that brought to mind the Templar cross at 1st glance) is slightly out of proportion? & that each Axis would have comprised of 2 of those bands (so Pisces Virgo being the blue paired with a green & Arier Libra would be the green on the other side paired with the black)
 
 
Will start "bearing Light" on our thoughts towards the subject by answering our question to you (when it comes to the Heart of any matter, all each person can do (from their unique perspective) is explain their views & share ideas, to facilitate getting viewpoints across, so as to create a 'bridge' between worlds) the Heart (as an organ) upon getting nourished with a Wealth of Satiety,, it gets the 'idea' to 'go' again for another round (look to the minor arcana for clues on meaning, or ask if need be)
 
Really thinking that the "Bridge" between those 4 Elements (Alpha & Omega) = connection to the "Divine Spark" of Spirit 
 
Knowing fully that breath also has a strong significance to Spirit in many cultures (because of the necessity to breathe in order to live (Chi can be translated as 'energy flow' 'breath' 'life force')) but thinking that you'll agree that not every living creature has Spirit, am fairly certain that every living creature has a Soul though & that evolves its level of consciousness (am unable to see a direct correlation between inteligence & consciousness so for the sake of simplicity, would that be the non physical intellect you spoke of?) throughout each lifetime, the more conscious you become the closer a connection to Spirit you get (way we see it, every Soul is part of the 'mind' of God but that being that is known by some as 'All' also has its physical attributes to account for (the name "All" says it All (& we're not even touching upon the spaces inbetween spaces such as "Dark Matter" (to use an example)) with that said, that's what resonates so much with the phrase "the Dao that can be named is not the Dao" (any attempt to define serves only to separate (such is the nature of a Sword))
 
 
Fantastic, loving the things you brought into our Awareness about the Sun rising above the diaphragm & so on!! Surely it must have already been known at a Soul level (because of our description of the Sun character) higher forms of LOVE certainly take precedence over the lower forms, along with an innate 'acceptance' (not a submission) to what iS!

😀 It is actually a synchronicity you mentioned the Templar Cross! Because that is exactly what my initial vision turned into ultimately.

In my experience there were twelve divisions around the circle as I was imagining twelve houses around my head... so consider the blue, to be only straight lines dividing the circle into quarters + .

Right??? When the nature of the mind and language works with filtration, reductions, and abstractions then any description/definition/etc is nothing but a negation.

 

It is just amazing reading you! Can't wait to read more of your amazing posts on Tarot.
