A weaver of threads.

Called up to the majors

Day eight. Still don't get The Chariot. Harnessing differences, yes; hurtling out of control, yes. But why does my deck's version have a boat? With wheels? Why the burning figure on the deck--why the screaming boar, the moon-and-star, the gold blocks? What is the chariot carrying, and what draws it?

Working my way through the Major Arcana is more confusing than I had anticipated. We're past the easy ones, and not yet to the ones that get the most thought (Tower, Moon, Alchemy).
