The Chariot Tarot Card Meanings
The Chariot: This card shows a strong man at the helm of a chariot, with Egyptian influences by the display of the black and white sphinxes (which represent the male and female, ying and yang).
This card represents an ability to control the forces around us, to be able to rein them in, to do our bidding, no matter how powerful and insurmountable they may appear to be.
The Chariot advises you to face conflicts and difficulties in your life with a warrior-like spirit. In other words, to discover "the charioteer within"! This means being clear and self-assured about what you want and having the will, determination and self discipline to get this for yourself.
