What does The Chariot Tarot card mean?

Learn the meaning of The Chariot Tarot card in under a minute!

The Chariot Upright Meaning

The Chariot Tarot card points to a triumphal feeling of freedom, as if the Charioteer is being paraded through the streets as a hero (or heroine). The card reflects congratulations for high achievement, and serves as a sign of empowerment.

Huge wheels and frisky steeds speed the rate at which the driver's will power can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to one ambitious enough to seize The Chariot's reins. But there is danger in this feeling of freedom, because of the increased rate of change and its power to magnify mistakes in judgment. As a seasoned warrior, the Charioteer is called upon to be extra attentive to the way ahead.

The Chariot Reversed Meaning

When this card is reversed, it suggests that you may balk when you know you need to pick up the reins and take responsibility for setting your life in motion.

You know you could instigate change, but you haven't yet chosen to move toward it. You may be holding back for what feels like good reasons, but nothing is actually being imposed upon you; you do have other options. Own your own inner resistance instead of blaming circumstances.

The Chariot Advice Position

The Chariot advises that you be prepared for changes that might include a move or an opportunity to travel. The Charioteer travels light and stays open to fresh experiences that change with every valley or mountain pass.

You may be asked to live out of a suitcase and consider every place your home for a while. Be receptive to new people who come into your life. Most especially, become more fluid and taste the joys of freedom. The Charioteer is nothing if not self-sufficient.

Be prepared and self-contained for the changes that will sweep in and carry you with them.

The Chariot Love Position

The Chariot is a symbol of victory through mental control. The feeling of this card reminds us of an athlete poised for the starting gun. When the signal comes, he or she hits the ground running. The Chariot is not about the security of castle and moat. No, the Chariot represents an adventurous nature, a desire to seize the reins in romantic and personal affairs, and a love of the open road.

The sphinx-like steeds are anxious to lunge forward and be on their way. This card reminds you to use the powers of your mind to steer that wild excitement and focus the energy, because the urge to action is unstoppable. When you take up the reins of the charioteer, you assume the rapid rise of the culturally, psychologically and technologically advanced and mobile individual, a world class citizen.

The Chariot Career Position

When the Chariot is in this position, an electrifying force is driving you toward a victory in your career and workplace. The wheels of the chariot symbolize both the wheels of time and the motion of the planets. Unstoppable change may be sweeping through this situation. It is an exciting time, though it can seem chaotic. Those who do not move and grow with the transformational energy may feel overwhelmed by this driving force. Do not allow this to happen in your life.

See if you can hitch a ride on this chariot and advance your career goals and aspirations at work. There is no reason to let this transformative energy and opportunity go by without you.

The Chariot in a Yes or No Card Reading

The Chariot is a card of momentum. If you're looking for simple Yes or No guidance and receive The Chariot, the answer is YES. Move swiftly and choose excitement over worry.
