Margarete Petersen Study -VII - The Charioteer (Wagenlenkerin)


Translation:
  • Go back, far back,
    through the mirror - don't get hung up on unsolvable knots.
    Far back, behind contradictions,
    where the black and the white cats
    melt into one point of
    phosphorescent glimmering in the microcosmos,
    the nerves, an acutely sensitive system
    register unknown movements.
    A gliding and flowing
    without personal baggage.

At the center of this card is what I've affectionately dubbed the Cosmic Bike Reflector

Crowley writes about his own Chariot card, that this blazing light disk is in fact the Holy Grail, and is the "central and most important feature of the card " - further,
Quote:
It is of pure amethyst, of the colour of Jupiter, but its shape suggests the full moon and the Great Sea of Binah. In the centre is radiant blood; the spiritual life is inferred; light in the darkness. These rays, moreover, revolve, emphasizing the Jupiterian element in the symbol.
