|The Chariot - You can achieve your goal if you will
just keep trying. Progress can be made now - obstacles overcome and
success gained through personal dynamism. Control your emotions and your
dreams will come true - remove all the obstacles so you will have the
vision to move forward. You are due recognition and honor - harness all
your energy and apply it wisely so that you will be able to make your
point. Allow your soul to direct your body - be receptive to both the
negative and the positive - control and balance them. Rest now, reflect
and turn inward for analysis, solitude, health and physical completion
without effort. Issues are coming to a head now - maintain control - wait,
listen and avoid pushing your affairs. Accept that you are "in"
the world but not "of" the world - find the "force"
within you through a quiet and receptive state of mind. "Ego" is
your conscious mind, your physical self-image - it forms the
"surface" identity which directs your views and focus - it is a
vehicle used to express your soul. Your ego continually changes as your
beliefs about yourself change - it successfully controls a situation, but
never brings the contradictions together so that they can be resolved.
Trust and work in harmony with your "way" and you will reach
your goal. Honor your achievements and dedicate yourself to even higher
Harness all your energies toward your purpose - you will experience true victory once your spirit has found a focus through which it can release its total force. Shut out what is keeping you from reaching your goals. Once your lessons have been absorbed and you have become a mature adult - successful in life, admired by others, confident and content with yourself - able to control your feelings and direct your will as your strong character controls the opposing forces of life. No longer a victim of your emotions - your sexuality contributes to a satisfying life as your mental energy directs your passions and controls your instinctive desires. Individualization is the gradual birth of another "self" higher than your "ego" self. As you mature - you create a kind of mask to deal with the outside world. If you have dealt successfully with the various challenges that life has presented you - then these different aspects will become integrated into your "ego" mask. You can easily confuse this successful persona with your "true" Self (a high opinion of yourself which is not justified - an exaggerated desire to have your own way or an exaggerated importance of "self"). If this occurs - then the removal of this mask will create the fear that its removal could possibly result in death. Challenge yourself and with the heart, will and courage of a warrior, exorcise your inner demon of fear which is the greatest obstacles to life and growth.
Recognize that you "mirror" the actions and emotional feelings of those around you - you are receptive and sensitive to emotions. You have put on a mask of detachment for your own self- protection. Imagine yourself beyond human limitations. "Speech" restricts your experience of reality - it forms a description of the world and gives everything a label. When you accept this "label", you actually erect a barrier between yourself and an experience. This "label" replaces the thing itself - when you see a tree, you think "tree" and move on - rather than allowing yourself to experience the impact of this wonderful living organism. As you come to rely on this rationality - you will begin to ignore experiences that cannot be expressed in words. Always remain conscious of the "distance" and "difference" between your human consciousness and the Divine consciousness - for only in a state of humility will God draw near to you.

This chariot will not go where the left horse would take it, nor where the right horse would take it - but where we steer it - straight ahead down the middle of the path. Consider these two horses temperance and temptation - one steering you back, the other pushing you forward.
