The Chariot Tarot Card Meaning: forward movement, success, overcoming obstacles, travel
The Chariot is a card of moving onward and upward as you conquer that which stands in your way on your journey to succeed. Ironically, the figure in this card doesn’t really look like he is going anywhere! His chariot appears to be made of concrete and the two sphinxes seem as if they’re just lounging around, poised to go off in different directions.
If the two sphinxes aren’t in agreement on the direction, the chariot will go nowhere. The black and white sphinxes represent the need to integrate both light and dark sides of the self in order to move forward spiritually. Similarly, we often battle internally between what we want to do and what we think we should do.
The Chariot Tarot card meaning suggest that once we are whole, integrated and aligned with our purpose, things begin to happen! Shift occurs, movement takes place and we find ourselves hurdling down our path at mach speed!
