The Chariot Tarot Card Meaning

The Chariot Upright:

Keywords: victory, jurisdiction, control, willpower, success, action, determination, movement, inner strength

You have discovered how to make choices that align with your values and are now taking action on those choices. You are bringing your goals to fruition using your inner power and determination.

You need to take action on your goals because they’re not going to manifest by themselves. It’s not going to be easy, but your willpower will help you through everything and keep you on your true path to success.

Right now, your goals are energizing you with endless amounts of energy that you need to see things through. But this energy is short lived and shouldn’t be expected to be maintained forever.

Be bold, be brave and express your desires, lay down your boundaries. Without this, you will get pushed around and the goals that are achieved won’t be yours, but someone else’s.

In a literal sense, the Chariot can represent travel, most commonly across water.

The Chariot Reversed: 

Keywords: riot, turbulence, wrong direction, self-discipline, opposition, lack of direction, ego

Slow down and don’t let other run over you and don’t run them over either. Your goals will still be there, but you don’t want to lose people on the way.You may not be in control of the situation and you may not have the power to change things at this time, but you will have the power to change things if you just take the control back.

It’s time to take a step back and assess that you are on the right path. You may be losing some motivation around this time. It’s time re-evaluate and make sure that you are still heading where you want to go.

You may be running into challenges and obstacles that make it seem like it’s too hard to continue. This is when you need to stop and really think if this goal is something that you truly want, if it’s in alignment with your Highest Self. Make sure that you are putting your energy into things that align with your Highest Self goals otherwise you may just be wasting time and precious energy.

Focus on what you can control and don’t stress about what you can’t control. Loosen up and release what you can’t control, this will help you to be able to focus on what you can.
