Hermetic Tarot - The Chariot VII

Lord of the Triumph of Light. Cheth. Fence. At the top of the card appears the sign of Cancer and between the sphinxes at the bottom appears the sign of the crab. The charioteers' garments are made of chain mail and steel, giving protection similar to that of a crabs' shell. The four pillars reach up into the sky of Binah and the ten stars represent the stars of Assiah, the material world.

The wheels of the chariot represent the energy of Geburah. At the centre of the card is the Holy Grail. The card depicts the chariot of Hermes drawn by two sphinxes, Jachin signifying love and Boaz signifying power. Thus the sphinxes represent the power and love held under control.

Samael guides Jachin and Anael guides Boaz. The chariot is not in motion because this card represents equilibrium. The figure of a crowned Hermes, erect in his Chariot, controls with magical sword and wand the powers of good and evil, thus maintaining a state of absolute equilibrium.
