Sun Dressed as the Charioteer

The Sun moves into Cancer today, and stays there until July 23rd.

From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the Sun is dressed as the Charioteer. He’s put on some armour and exchanged his horse for a chariot and a couple of sphinxes.

The Sun is sunshine. He’s enthusiasm, joy and visibility. He’s warmth, freedom and victory.

He’s a child who’s not really a child, but a soul that’s been on the road for a very long time, and his destination is finally in view.

The Sun only seems young in that he’s open, unattached and looking to play. But if we look a little deeper, we see that he’s actually the source of life, the innocent infinity within us all.

The Chariot has also been on the road a while. But when the Charioteer travels, he shields himself from the sun with his starry canopy, and wears reflective moons as his lapels.

He’s a soldier, capable of both aggression and defense. He’s carried forward by the power of his convictions, and by commitments he made back home.

The Charioteer doesn’t give up. He’s determined to complete whatever task is before him, and he typically does it well.

The Sun is always up for adventure, so he feels all right in this position. Though forced to cover up more than he’s accustomed to, he’s enthusiastic about getting out on the road.

The Sun in Cancer, or the Sun dressed as the Charioteer, is a time when the fight might not seem as important as the journey. And it might be more productive to play a little than to battle.

It’s a period of strength, vitality and the will to succeed. Use it to push through emotional blocks, or attitudes that may have been holding you back.

And get back to work on any projects you’ve been letting languish. Perseverance should be the word of the month.

But try looking at what you have to do as a game, rather than a taxing burden. As long as you keep playing, you’ll be winning.
