The Chariot #7
Balance. Everything is in its place. A call to be in the present moment.
The Father ("El papa") is card #5 of the 'Glenda's Tarot' digital work by Glenda Leon.
Inspired by the physical work Every tear is a shape of time (serie I, n.3), 2018.
Translated from Glenda Leon:
“The right path is that of the heart”, is something that we can read in Castaneda, and rarely, learn in life. Therefore, the time that passes, if it passes without the heart being present, is time wasted. This card is action in the world, walking and moving forward in it. Without the heart this walk, this path is going to be very difficult. However, if you act, if you advance along the path of the heart, you come into contact with the eternal, all doors open, you triumph.
It is also the vital activity of the earth. The beats that come out of its center, is the universal energy.
Tarot - The practice of tarot emerged in Italy around the 15th century as a form of entertainment, which later spread to much of Europe. The Major Arcana are 22 individual numbered cards, each one represented by a character or symbol, such as the Fool, Death, the Wheel of Fortune, among others. Before the emergence of the printing press, tarot cards were illustrated by hand, being commissioned by artists as if they were a pictorial or sculptural work. This tradition has continued throughout history, and more recently, we have seen recreations of tarot designs made by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo, among other artists who have been attracted to the deep mysticism around the subject and the visual impact of tarot cards.
