The Chariot

You are in the driver’s seat, hands firmly on the reins. Where do you want to go? How fast do you wish to get there? What route will you take? Consider the destination and what detours might be needed. Then: GO.

This is your month to hit the ground running as you move towards the goal line. A triumph will be yours if you keep your eye on the ball. Do not stop, no matter how much you may be tempted to. Instead, continue on, until you are victorious. August is for winners. That’s you, babe.

On a mundane level, this card can also indicate a road trip or car maintenance. This might be a fab month for cleaning out your vehicle and taking care of long overdue repairs. A bit of care now will keep your whip running as long as you need it. Of course, if you’re in a market for a new car, start looking now. Your dream chariot may be yours by the month’s end.
