This is the original artwork for the Chariot that appears in Tarot of the Morning Star deck, reprinted in a revised and expanded edition 2017 Tarot Chariot, represents the inundation bringing the return of life to the Nile Valley. The Chariot, illustrates the result of unleashing the possibilities, explained in the Lovers, and the danger of being swept away by them. The interpretation of the Chariot in a tarot reading is an overcoming of obstacles, recovery and success although this may be only temporary. The degree and duration of success will depend upon the amount of work we have done to prepare ourselves for the new life situations that our enthusiasm for life has created for us. Tarot Key Chariot is an illustration of a triumphant individual who has harnessed learned abilities and experiences to courageously impel themselves into the pursuit of achieving their aspirations. This is not saying their projects will be successful; it is saying the individual has courage to try. Triumphant implies the person has conquered their fears to be able to attempt an enterprise. Tarot key Moon is the path travelled where fears, fuelled from previous unconscious actions, tarot key Death, are conquered. This individual is capable to attempt an enterprise because of past experiences, some successful and some not. We should remember, it is not the result that is important; it is the act of trying that is paramount. Whatever the outcome, an aware individual realizes experiences are not an end but a segment of a longer story yet to be revealed. Such a person symbolized by the Chariot does not automatically react to outside stimuli but takes the time to inwardly reflect on the repercussions of action. This is a dramatic about turn from what is witnessed in tarot key Death. Death, where the primal ruthless individual reacts unconsciously to events with no sense of accountability for actions taken. The three Major Arcana keys associated with the element of water; Death, Moon and Chariot illustrate an individual's emotional progression from unconscious reaction to stimuli to a conscious awareness of taking action and the possible consequences. For more elucidation on the personality traits correlating with the keys, Death, Moon and Chariot refer to the court keys, Prince of Cups, Princess of Cups and Knight of Cups.

Roger Williamson is a visual artist, residing and creating in Minneapolis Minnesota. Born in Loughborough, England, in 1947 and growing up in Coventry he was inspired from an early age by the French Symbolist painters of late nineteenth century France, These artistic influences, in conjunction with his own esoteric upbringing and practical experiences of magick, mythology and dream control, form the matrix, a collective oeuvre upon which his paintings and writings are an extension. Using diverse creative media, whether painting or writing books, Williamson endeavors to develop techniques that materialize the sensuous dreaming experience into the language of the waking world. Aspiring to reintroduce mystery and ambiguity back into the adventure of human existence through the creative process, encouraging artistic audiences towards "living effulgent and invigorating lives, revitalized from the secretions of our subconscious." Roger Williamson is the creator of Tarot of the Morning Star deck and the author of The Sun at Night. Statement Art is an externalization of struggle to rationalize and give form to something not understood. The artist, like the oyster, is driven to externalize this conflict into the image of a pearl. I believe art should be appreciated through a viewer's individual intercourse with the work, allowing the image to speak for itself and not be prejudged by societies academic paradigms. This concept has close parallels to techniques first acquired in childhood, such as the ability to stare at clouds and see recognizable images arise and fall in the mind’s eye out of what initially was perceived as chaos. Through this technique, letting a work speak to a deeper self than the superficial mind involves the viewer in the creative process, their imagination evolves the artwork to another level. The work is no longer stationary but part of a wave as is nature herself.
