The Chariot – Meaning in a Tarot reading :
Duality of Circumstance
My Warrior commands his war Chariot drawn by two sphinxes, one white & one black. Notice the reins he holds are not controlling the course of his journey. Can he take control over his destiny ?. He is on a quest to control all aspects of his personality. The winged symbol on the Chariot represents the male & female aspects of his persona. The celestial symbols on his shield show his preoccupation with spiritual advancement, rather than the physical world that he leaves in his path.
The Chariot represents your life choices. Will you choose wisely & follow the right course ?.
As I have said,The Chariot is being drawn by two
sphinxes, one black and one white, indicating
a choice needs to be made. Material matters now
stabilise. You should focus on how you feel. you
need to raise your spirits. A recent disagreement will
be resolved. if you have been feeling anxious the Chariot
breezes through to clear your thoughts. Contact may
be re-established with an old acquaintance possibly
after an unexpected communication.
Balance returns to your life, you must learn to mix
commitments with socialising, now is a time of personal development.
An unexpected journey or a surprise party will be announced.
You will excel at your current endeavours, you must
prepare for a period of sustained focus. Restlessness is
a problem, accept this & identify how to escape it. Be careful
to avoid gossip & empty conversation. Avoid spending time
with people who drain your energy. Be strong & don't seek to
escape your responsibilities through escapism, build your
self respect & learn to love yourself as you really are.
Do not allow negative thoughts to weigh you down.
Be disciplined with yourself and nourish your inner being.
Your senses are highly developed at this time & all aspects
of your personality are balanced, make the most of this.
Move outside of the ordinary, a visit to the theatre is well indicated,
you should accept any unusual propositions.
Be extremely sensitive to the feelings of others,
watch your words carefully. Think before you speak, get the facts.
Now is a good time to break those annoying habits
& patterns of behaviour, your subconscious will motivate you.
Pay scrupulous attention to details, especially in any form of contract.
Use your past experience to move you forward, forgotten memories
will resurface, possibly through dreams.
Use your intuition to solve problems, don't give in to your emotions
& be careful to use your intellect to your advantage.
You are your own master now & will make the right choice.

My Relationship with The Chariot
The Chariot is the first card to transcend to a higher level on the Tree of Life. It is a victorious card that symbolises success. For me it heralds a rise to a higher level of consciousness, to see the bigger picture if you will. Some outmoded ways of thinking, friends or habits will inevitably fall by the wayside. I know for a fact that allowing emotions or an uncontrolled thought process are a recipe for disaster. You must grab the reins of The Chariot & steer your life towards a more fulfilling reality. Like the Charioteer, I am aware of everything that is happening in reality & across my inner landscape simultaneously. This is tempered by intuition absorbed through the voice of The Hierophant, such awareness can often be a blessing making me aware of developments almost before they happen. More often though this awareness is exhausting & requires masterful self control over thought patterns to keep my personal Chariot on course. I find mantras useful to calm the over active mind, especially in crowds or areas with a high concentration of technology. Try it next time you find yourself stressing out, silently chant Om Mani Padme Hum, ( the mantra of Chenrezi, the Buddha of compassion ) . It has got me through many a trying tube journey….
As always I wish you only success xxx
