What Tarot Card Represents Cancer?

If you are a spiritual person, then you will likely already know your zodiac sign, or star sign. The star signs correlate to the day and month in which you are born.

As a result, you will have certain traits and personality aspects that go with that zodiac sign.

What Tarot Card Represents Cancer

As a Cancer, you are a water sign. This star sign is ruled by the moon, a celestial body that is all about self-care, sensitivity, comfort, and maternal instincts.

Because of this, you may love to care for others, and are very nurturing and loyal as a person. Cancers are also fiercely protective of those they care about. 

You may not know that zodiac signs are very deeply connected to the Tarot. Each star sign has its own Tarot card that represents them. 

So, which tarot card is meant for Cancer? Let’s find out. 

What Tarot Card Represents Cancer?

A Tarot card deck is split into 22 Major Arcana cards, such as The High Priestess, The Fool, or The Moon. Then, there are 56 Minor Arcana cards that are the lesser cards such as wands, cups, swords or pentacles. 

Each zodiac sign in the calendar is ruled by one Tarot card from the Major Arcana. Cancers are born between June 21st and July 22nd. If Cancer is your star sign, then the Tarot card that represents Cancer is The Chariot.

This may come as a shock to you, as the Cancer zodiac sign is very orientated around family and caring, whereas The Chariot is a card of freedom, often appearing with a great warrior.  

What Is The Meaning Of The Chariot Tarot?

The Chariot Tarot card is shown with a great warrior in the forefront, no matter which deck you are using. In most cards, you will see a warrior or a knight riding in a chariot.

Most of these cards will depict the warrior in a chariot pulled by two sphinxes, with crescent moons on his shoulder, covered in armor and symbols of victory and success.

The warrior holds a wand, representative of his immense power and control in life. This is a very traditional card that represents a typical Cancer’s very strong, armor-like personality.

It can be quite difficult to break through a Cancer’s strong protective shell.

Therefore, The Chariot depicts a Cancer’s hard, fiery exterior. But once you break down that outer shell, and they let you in, you will be able to see them for who they are on the inside. 

In addition, this card represents a Cancer’s drive and determination to focus on their goals in life. If they set their mind to something, they will not stop until they achieve it.  

The Chariot tarot card is symbolic of someone’s action, drive, and success. It demonstrates a person’s will and determination in finding the direction they want to travel in.

However, this card shows the warrior being pulled in opposite directions. That being said, with his will and courage, the warrior knows which way he needs to go.

This card can also represent how important it is for you to remain balanced and grounded. The Chariot will try to pull you in different directions and onto different paths.

You may lose yourself along the way. But if you remain humble and focused, you can avoid this.  

This tarot card carries a lot of masculine Cancer energy. This is because The Chariot warrior is deeply connected to the moon and its lunar energy. The Cancer star sign is ruled by the moon, and so this card has a deep rooted correlation to Cancers.
