No. 8

Gain a Tao

Tarot 8

In the earliest Italian sources, the card is referred to as "Il Carro" (the Chariot), or "Il Carro Triumphale" (the Triumphal Chariot), and is associated with triumphal parades that were popular in Italy at the time the tarot was created. A regal warrior in a chariot drawn by two horses usually holds a scepter, sword, or orb to indicate his dominion. He is often crowned. In some decks, however, the figure is female, and in one deck she is nude - maybe an allegorical personification of victory, or perhaps mastery of wordly life and such things. [cf. Little]
