(From my personal page) The Chariot: I have been thinking about this card for awhile now - especially recently. It’s the card associated with Cancer, guarded by armor and full of tenacity but soft and vulnerable inside. A mama warrior. I’m especially in love with this depiction from the Next World Tarot deck in all its style.
Being a Cancer Sun, Capricorn Moon; it’s hard to find the balance between being detached and driving forward and being slow moving and free to feel. I’ve had a hard time integrating between the two and often feel that capitalism only pushes for the first and never the latter. Which is exhausting! We aren’t given the time to feel, process, take the armor off. Many of us who have been vulnerable have been hurt, even traumatized. And that only pushes further into our armor, our crab shells. It hurts to come out again - I know this well. .
I’ve heard from many people that it’s easier to keep going and stay busy rather than allow ourselves to feel pain, grief, disappointment, anger - I definitely resonate with that. It’s hard to find the time in our lives to choose to feel emotions and overwhelming distractions. But sometimes we push so hard and so fast only to be forced to stop as we collapse, cry, fall down. We are human. .
The Chariot, to me, reminds us to muster up our strength, power up, and be tenacious in our passion and goals. AND it also reminds us to slow down and take off the armor once in awhile. We can’t always be the hero, the rock, the go-getter. Sometimes we need to process and just be.
This last full moon and string of recent news hit me hard and many people I know. I feel emotionally overwhelmed. As we enter into Gemini season - a time of balance and duality - and get closer to Cancer season (EEE!), I encourage us all to take time to breathe and feel - anything. Let it come out if it feels safe to. Be around yourself and get comfortable or find someone TVs gives you safety. Schedule a cry session? Lol maybe!
As summer approaches, energies are shifting. Get ready for the dog days and lackadaisical fun. Fuck capitalism. #witchesofinstagram #tarot #thechariot #fullmoon #gemini #cancer #witch #queerwitch #fuckcapitalism at Minneapolis, Minnesota
