The Chariot Card Leads an Artist to Victory

Written by Mark McElroy

A Tarot reading inspires an artist to change direction.

Brooklyn singer/songwriter Victoria Reed says a Tarot reading — and, specifically, a message from the Chariot trump — established a new direction in her life, prompting her to go into the music business:

I pulled these cards. In the future position, there was the Chariot card. That card is always about triumph and balancing opposing sources. Almost like a well-earned victory. Not necessarily an easy one, but hard fought victory and stability. It was a very big symbol of hope for me.

Meantime, Victoria’s latest album — also Tarot inspired — includes this dreamy track (All My Power):

If The Creative Tarot had been less of a card dictionary and more a library of stories like this one, I’d have liked it better.
