Head - The Lord
Unsurprisingly, the Head card is all about rationality, logic and thinking you're in charge: the things our head-based ego normally talks to us about!
Heart - The Rider
The Heart tells us to listen to the messages around us, to be open to hearing what others have to say and what the Universe wants us to hear.

The Man is more practical and down-to-earth than the Lord, more focused on how to get things done than on being in control. He is more about doing than thinking. This fits beautifully with an image I found, shown here courtesy of enneagram.co.uk, regarding the realm of each brain!
Moving forward rationally is aided by listening to the more practical messages of heart and gut.
The cards absolutely agree - we mustn't think just with our head, but bring in our heart and gut, too, to have a well-balanced understanding of the world, ourselves and others. I like the imagery, as well. The head and gut cards look in different directions, it is only the Rider as messenger that links them together. And it's fascinating to have received both the "Male" cards - to emphasise both how this "thinking" by our gut and head is different and the same.
