How the Pattern is Found
The tarot keys that are included in the Pattern of The Chariot. Each of these cards can be broken down to a single prime number of 7, which relates it back to The Lovers.
The Tower: Key 16
The Chariot stands tall, knowing they are victorious in what they set out to accomplish. They are disciplined and able to focus their intent to achieve what they set their mind to. The energy here is assured of it’s victory because it knows who and what it is and uses this information to it’s benefit. But then it reaches The Tower and realizes that everything that it thought it knew about itself wasn’t real.. or was it? This confusion creates sudden and drastic change as things that were so solid and true come crashing down without warning.
With The Chariot and The Tower as your birth cards, you are prone to being intense. You are very self assured and know everything about yourself one minute. The next, you aren’t sure of anything and nothing is the same. Everything is different. The Chariot sys that you are moving forward, but you’re not really sure which way you are going, but you know that you are moving forward. You listen to your intuition to guide you in these situations, but find that when you listen to your emotions instead, you find yourself at The Tower. Your emotions are able to bring things to a crashing halt when they are not in check. Spending time taking care of your emotions and listening to them is important to people with these birth cards.
The ability to channel your emotions, while keeping them safe from the confusion and yo-yoing of The Tower takes effort. Effort that not everybody sees. But you know how much work you put into being composed when everything around you is going crazy. This is your secret weapon.
