The Knight of Batons (Wands) is someone with vision, a dreamer, a traveler/visitor, or the journey itself. Inverted he refers to someone who can’t see past his own issues to care about anyone else or a journey delayed. Knights can represent boy babies, a teenager, or someone a little younger than the client. The Knight of Batons could have the physical attributes of strawberry blonde, red head, light brown hair and light eyes.
Those in the Baton suit are spiritual, creative, singers, musicians, healers, counselors, teachers, therapists and customer service/support staff.
The 7th card of the Major Arcana is “The Chariot.” This card represents victory by force and overcoming those who oppose us. Inverted this card represents defeat, weakness, being stuck, and negative issues. However, we must also examine the full card for more vivid readings.
When a client is looking to see when he will move, travel, buy a new car, or when someone is coming to visit, this card will appear in my timelines to show the incident. Inverted it means delays, car issues, just any sort of difficulty in progression.
One of my favorite Chariot readings was for a girl who was in great distress. She and a boyfriend had been fighting and she wanted to know when the issue would be resolved. The Chariot kept popping into the
spread and it was inverted. However, it wasn’t in “the hot seat.” I realized that it was a part of the story she didn’t want revealed. Finally, before we hung up she asked me, “Aren’t you going to ask me what we were fighting for?” I said, “I think I already know it is something you are embarrassed about.” After sitting there staring at the Chariot I had come to the conclusion they were fighting over an outdated broken appliance. After momentarily reflecting upon the history of the card, I knew it was the VCR. (Historically the chariot has always had letters on it’s canopy or some other spot. In modern decks the letters S&M are shown, which some take to represent sulfur and mercury in alchemy. However, in Tarot history the letters V&R have appeared…hence a broken VCR.)
Remember, your deck will not reveal anything you aren’t prepared to read. Anyone can throw cards, but the gift lies in the interpretation.
