Here we have the Chariot being drawn by the sphinxes, representing the blending of the Kerubic beasts. The Charioteer is in full armor, like the crab (this card represents the zodiac sign Cancer) and bears the Holy Grail (the carved amethyst)
Written in the canopy is ABRAHADABRA, the magical expression of the formula of the marriage and microcosm with the macrocosm (or us to our Holy Guardian Angel). It is also indicative of the male and female uniting that we see in some of the other trump cards and the alchemical symbols of red and white lion and white and red eagle.
The path of the Chariot crosses the Abyss, joining Geburah with Binah, dealing with the profound aspects of nature and consciousness. This is a time to really work on focusing our Will (willpower too) This is a card of awesome and powerful energy and we need to harness it wisely and let it drive us forward on our Great Work. It might not always be easy but if we stand strong we can triumph.
