The Chariot Description
The Chariot card depicts a brave warrior standing inside a chariot. He wears armor, symbolizing protection from outside influences and self-protection from self-doubt. The chariot is adorned with symbols of spiritual transformation and the warrior holds no reins, instead, using his willpower and determination to control the sphinxes.
In front of the chariot are two sphinxes, one black and one white, symbolizing the duality, opposites, and conflicts that we must learn to control. They also represent the mysteries of life. The city stands behind him, symbolizing his accomplishment and the journey he made to achieve success.
The Chariot represents overcoming challenges and achieving victory through maintaining control and balance. It signifies determination, ambition, and the drive to succeed. The Chariot reminds us to assert ourselves, stay focused, and maintain direction to achieve our goals.
