Chariot tarot card in a time-based position

Past – The Chariot in the Past position represents a past victory or success that is currently carrying you. You have to look to new horizons while maintaining the current balance. You may have started a new job or graduated from a new class recently. The aim is to look at your achievement, learn from them, and think where to go.

Present – The Chariot in the present position shows that you are about to, or are currently in the process of achieving something. You could be in the application process for a job you’ll eventually get, or learn a great deal from. The Prince has a Neutral look on his face. Though achieving, there is always a greater goal.

Future – The tarot card in the future position gives you something to look forward to. Are you just laying the groundwork for a new project? It is at it’s strongest when in the future position. Just be sure to be yourself. Working alone, in fact, might be good for you.

The Chariot in regards to life issues

Work / Education – The Chariot reminds you to focus on the bigger picture and end-goal. Don’t get distracted, but help other people out if you can. if you’re thinking of being self-employed, go for it.

Romance – The Chariot isn’t a good sign in romance. It can show competition between partners and senseless bickering. there might be one thing that both of you want and can’t share. It might also mean there is a situation where only willpower will help you through. Don’t be forced into anything.

Friends – The tarot card again can show a bit of uneasiness with friendships. It might be a good time to be alone and focus on non-interpersonal things like a practical project. Obviously, don’t neglect your friendships, but don’t get caught up and dragged along on things you don’t want to do.

Money – The Chariot is good news in regards to finance. You might even have enough money to go a bit wild and splash out. as always, focus on your responsibilities and debts first. there is literally no reason to buy something like a flashy car or clothing when you could put that money to a much more useful purpose.

Health – The tarot card is also good when it comes to health. Warriors rode chariots into battle, and you are a warrior

Spirituality and Mentality – The Chariot card suggests you should take an active part in developing your spiritual side. There are many paths but you won’t learn anything by dipping between them and being eclectic right now. Take the time to research into things a bit more deeper than usual.

The Meaning and Symbology of The Chariot Card

Many assume the character on The Chariot is a King. He is likely a prince, shown by his lack of beard, although this does little to play down his victories so far. He has achieved much, but always for somebody else. Standard symbology is also present, the two Sphinxes representing the mysteries and, as shown by their opposite gender; duality. As usual, the ancient Egyptian connection is clear, not only with the present Sphinxes, but also the light hieroglyph pattern on the Prince.

The Chariot Card in Reverse

In reverse, the tarot card can represent a lack of willpower, control or direction when aiming for and achieving your goals. Whereas upright, it speaks only of achievement, when reversed, The Chariot reminds you to be mindful of your current drives and aims. Something may be wrong with the path you are following. Are you going in the right direction? Are you working on what you want to work on, or are you just helping somebody else achieve their dream? This isn’t specifically bad, but be careful not to sacrifice all of your energy for a goal you are not passionate about.
