The Karma card is the Tarot of the Old Path’s version of the Judgment card. It speaks of undergoing a spiritual awakening, brought about by the understanding that everything thus far in your life has “led to this.”

This card refers to eternity, infinity and timelessness. It refers to the endless human journey that we sometimes refer to as “karma.” We reap and sew with each thought, action, and decision.

There are symbols in this version of the card from birth to death and everything in between. Death (the slain knight) and birth (the fetus still in its mother’s womb) make up the left and right corners while everything else — sin and redemption, damnation and salvation, innocence and lust, etc. — in between.

The Angels at the top of the card beckon the wayward souls to heaven while a cloaked guardian in the center determines their fate. There’s a horned god and a lunar goddess at the top watching the souls ascend.

This card represents a summation of all that has come before, and an awareness that each step taken — from here on out — leaves an indelible imprint on our future. On a personal level, this card speaks of compassion, forgiveness, understanding, and acceptance.

The Karma card reminds us that in order to put the past behind us we must not only let go of prior judgments but heal the wounds that have been holding us back.

Take this time to tie up loose ends. This can be a literal letting go of the past, but it will more likely relate to putting yourself in other people’s shoes and seeing how the mistakes they’ve made or the grief they’ve caused have been just as much a part of being human and flawed as any direct attempt to cause you pain

This is the “grace of God” card, which bestows infinite blessings on those who are able to recognize them. It’s a card of both atonement and forgiveness. Of unconditional love, understanding and acceptance — for both ourselves and for those who’ve hurt us or let us down.

The Chariot

You may be in for a bumpy ride today — especially in the romance department — with Mars still squaring Neptune and Venus squaring Uranus.

The Chariot card — this version from the beautiful Tarot of the Old Path — refers to internal upheavals that threaten to manifest externally, such as an angry outburst or emotional display. It challenges you to “pull it together” and exert control over your own internal conflicts.

The Four stallions in this card represent the four elements, as do their corresponding reigns. The first one on the left is Water with a pale, translucent (and watery) mane. Next is Air, with a crescent moon and smattering of stars. Then there’s Earth with the pentagram, wildflowers and wheat chaff main. And finally the Fire element horse with the flames surrounding him.

The Charioteer in this card is also loaded with symbolism. He wears a pentagram (symbol of ascended man) on his crown and a Crab (for the zodiac sign Cancer, which the Chariot is associated with) on his breast plate. He holds a hazel wand in his right hand, the wand best used for divination.

The Four stallions appear to be moving in relatively the same direction but you can see that each has a mind of his own. It will take a lot more than sheer force of will to contain them and keep them working as a team.

It will take discipline and restraint to keep them on track and moving in the same direction. Otherwise there’s some danger of spinning your wheels without really making any progress. The Venus / Uranus and Mars / Neptune squares can make it even harder to keep things under control.

You’ll have to work hard if you want to rein in all of that energy, and this is the essence of the Chariot card. It’s the understanding that all parts of any “machine” have to operate in harmony in order to be effective. If you’re willing to embrace that philosophy — and if you can stand up and take hold of the reins in your own life — you can accomplish anything.

Today’s Full Moon lunar eclipse first hides and then exposes the deepest, darkest regions of the unconscious via the shadow of the Sun crossing over the Moon.

The Moon card speaks of the need to get in touch with our emotions. it refers to mystery and the unknown, all that is hidden and that lies beneath the surface. This is the realm of the unconscious: that which is churning beneath your awareness and which often translates externally as anxieties, insecurities and fears.

It can manifest as confusion, uncertainty or paranoia — especially when we try to analyze it logically, which is foreign to the realm of the Moon. Just as we can’t fully appreciate the beauty of the Moon in the light of day (consciousness), we struggle to grasp its archetypal meaning through the lens of logic or reason.

In this version of the card — called “Illusion” in the Tarot of the Old Path deck — we see the pale figures of a man and a woman knee-deep in a pool of turbulent waters. The Egyptian-Sky Goddess Nuit stares out blankly at them from a distant horizon, a blanket of stars draped across her kneeling form. The Goddess isn’t happy, you can see a single tear sliding from her eye in the reflection of the pool.

The figures in the card appear to be experiencing a completely different set of emotional reactions under the influence of the darkening Moon. The man buries his face in his hands while the woman raises her arms up in celebration — or is she pleading to the Goddess?

The Moon card can refer to anxiety and confusion, based on an instinct that you can’t make rational sense of. You feel that something is “off” but can’t articulate your reasons because it’s not based on evidence, only intuition. It refers to mysteries and perplexities that are hard to unravel. You may working with insufficient information or you may be making assumptions based on feelings rather than facts. Either way you could run into opposition from others who challenge you to justify your instincts.

You can quiet your fears by reminding yourself that the future has not yet been written and that there’s still time to achieve the outcome you desire. You can work on curtailing some of the Moon’s more harrowing elements (doubt, fear, suspicion and paranoia) and tap into its more uplifting aspects (intuition, perception, sensitivity and discernment) instead.
