THE CHARIOT

il_570xN.431520568_1568The Chariot ~ Emily Balivet

Cancer is represented by the Chariot in the tarot, and indicates motion.

The Chariot is led by two horses, lions or sphinxes in most tarot decks.

The Charioteer is armored and self-reliant, guiding the reins with two horses, and stirred with strategic command, tremendous skill and focused intent toward victorious non-stop navigation of hard-won triumph over obstacles toward a goal directed destiny.

Hold tightly to the reins of destiny, and stir toward your goals with unwavering faith, confidence and victory!

What is your motivation?

What goals are you racing toward?

OLYMPIA!

In classical myth, Altis was the sacred sanctuary of Olympia, and monumental site for Greek heroes, and the ancient games.  The first Olympic Games were held every four years in honor of Zeus, and date back to 776 B.C.

THE FIRST OLYMPICS

Various myths have been written about the foundation of the ancient Olympics.  One myth states that Hercules founded the first games, but the myth of King Pelops’ victory against Oenomaus in a chariot race is an alternative.

NIKE:  The Divine Charioteer

NIKE, the Winged Goddess of Victory, Speed, and Strength is personified in a bronze chariot, guided by four horses.  She holds a staff graced by a magnificent bird, or a flaming torch.

The ancient games showcased many events, but Chariot racing was held at the hippodrome, a Greek stadium for chariot racing, and was a major event in honor of the Goddess Nike.

BATTLE OF THE TITANS

When the Titans and Olympians declared war, Nike was among Zeus’ allies, and she assumed the role of divine charioteer.  Her participation in the battle signified a symbol of “victory,” which included competitions, military, and athletics.

Let us honor the first Olympians for bravery, perseverance, strength, victory, and speed.

O’ Mighty Nike

We petition your wisdom and favor

to guide our chariots steady, and straightforward

with divine and valiant speed, toward victory,

triumph, trophies and medallions

LECTIO DIVINA

The process of Lectio Divina is a traditional Catholic practice of scriptural reading, and praying the scriptures, and silently listening to the texts.  The Scripture is regarded as sacred texts to be studied, as the Living Word in the form of meditation and prayer intended to commune with God.

Lectio – read the scripture, and listen with your heart. Note phrases, sentences, or words that stand out. Savor it, while repeating over and over, allowing it to permeate your heart.

Meditatio – reflect on the repetition of words, and remain in quiet reception, allowing the words to saturate your prayer. Pay attention to your breath and the silent whisper of your heart.  Write or draw images to note your experience.

Oratio – close your eyes, remain silent, and take a few deep breaths.  Listen to the repetition of the word for insight, gratitude, or supplication for an intuitive dialog with God.

Contemplatio – rest in the presence of God, and what you have received.  Enter into silence, and become aware of God’s presence and open yourself to a deeper connection with the Creator.

Today, I will read sacred texts, meditate, pray and contemplate the peace, and divine wisdom within.
