UPRIGHT

Willpower - Direction - Intuition - Control - Success From Efforts

The Chariot represents our will to succeed.

It can indicate overcoming a testing and challenging time, battling against difficult odds and eventual achievement.

This card is about finding your direction, taking control and driving yourself forwards to achieve all that you want for yourself.

It can also suggest that it is a good a time to step back and enter a period of solitude and introspection in order to re-evaluate your life and see things for what they really are.

Have faith in the Universe to provide you with the knowledge that you need to go forward. 

REVERSED

Obstacles - Lack of Direction - Lacking Control - Aggression

Like other reversed tarot cards, the Chariot reversed shows a blockage or opposition. 

The reversed Chariot can indicate that you need to take a hard look at where you are going and why. Don’t allow yourself to engage in movement just for the sake of movement. Purpose and direction is important at times.

 

Because the Chariot is also a vehicle and travel card, the Chariot reversed could indicate trouble in those areas. It could be minor, like traffic that makes you late, or it could be major, like travel plans that get quashed. Sometimes you can see interpretations of the Chariot reversed talk about accidents, but other than just being careful, try not to dwell on that too much. Why have that imagery in your head? Just take care and pay attention to gut feelings. Cancel if you need to, but live your life.

You may be feeling a great deal of energy toward getting things accomplished and improving your financial lot in life. There is nothing wrong with this, however receiving this card in reversal can indicate a need to slow down and solicit at least one or two more opinions about your planned course of action.
