The time is right to seize control of your life when the Chariot rolls into your tarot spread. Traditional images of this card show someone in control of a chariot being pulled by two critters—one black, one white. The message here is that you have a powerful machine that can take you where you want to go. It can even get you there really quickly. But only if you assert yourself and take control of what can seem like wildly different forces at play. You either run the Chariot, or its wild energy will run over you.

What is the Meaning of The Chariot in a Love Reading?

Because of its association with transportation or professions involving speed, seeing the Chariot in a love reading could mean finding a new lover who rides a motorcycle, is a professional driver, or even has some involvement with horses. Since this card is about the balance of opposing forces, your love story might be a friends-to-lovers one, or even enemies-to-lovers. If it’s the latter, try to keep a level head in spite of the fireworks going on in your heart. When those fireworks are over, it still remains to be seen if you will be compatible for the long haul.

When the Chariot comes up in a position representing you, the Universe is telling you to take a more direct approach in your dating life. If you want to meet someone new, get out there and meet more people. If you want a better relationship with someone you’re already involved with, it’s up to you to drive the conversation and the actions needed to have a stronger connection. It might feel a little scary to initiate all of this, but right now you have the energy around you to make your point loud and clear. The Chariot has some strong manifestation vibes, so there is a clear path to getting what you want. You just have to get the ball rolling in that direction.

If the Chariot comes up reversed in a love reading, one person might be bullying or manipulating the other to constantly get their way. Look, there are disagreements in even the healthiest relationships, but if one or both of you have to resort to mind games a lot of the time and don’t think/ care about how that will affect your relationship, then why are you together? This card position can also indicate a relationship that is going nowhere. Don’t expect a commitment from the person you are with any time soon.

What is the Meaning of The Chariot in a Future Reading?

Like we said above, this card is associated with transportation. So seeing the Chariot in a future reading could mean going on a trip (probably a road trip) or even getting a new set of wheels to take you where you want to go. That aside, the Chariot could also indicate getting stuck in between two opposing desires or forces. There is a way to bring everything together for a happy resolution for everyone, but it will require discipline.

If the Chariot comes up in a position representing you in a future reading, then you need to be the one who speaks up, loudly and firmly, about what happens next. This is not the time to go with the flow, because your interests will not be served if you leave it up to chance. It could also be signaling the need for willpower in one big final push to achieve your goals. Again, the way is clear for you to get what you want. You just have to put the sweat into it.

When the Chariot is reversed in a future reading, you need to make sure that you aren’t rushing into situations best left alone. You may taken on too much, especially if cards like the Two of Pentacles turn up in a reading too. Your focus might be too scattered and you’re running the risk of burning out. We know you’re a force of nature, but even forces of nature need to rest.  Take the intensity down a notch and be willing to let some things drop. Alternatively, this could also mean car issues or something happening to derail travel plans.

What is the Meaning of The Chariot in a Career Reading?

When you see the Chariot appear in a career reading, that means good news if you are searching for a job. You may need to network a bit more or pull in some new resources. But once you start making those connections, an opportunity for a great job will present itself. If you are already employed, there might be a new project or directive that re-defines the company’s priorities. All of your work might be shifted to realign with those priorities. There’s also a good chance of you needing to multitask to balance your old tasks while learning new skills. It’s doable, but that doesn’t mean it won’t feel like a lot on your plate all at once.

When the Chariot shows up in a position representing you in a career reading, you need to start looking for opportunities to speak up. You have good ideas that people will want to hear. You may also be put in a position where you have to work with multiple teams on a large scale. There’s no being passive or hoping someone else will step in to bring order. It’s all on you, but you have the skills and the drive to see the job done right.

When the Chariot appears reversed in a future reading, it could indicate a lot of waste or mismanagement in the workplace. Teams that should be pulling together are off doing their own thing, causing more work for everyone—or at least a longer wait time for projects to get done. It can also mean that you may have to adjust your timeline on some of your career goals or expectations. Super frustrating, we know. But you can use this moment to re-assess where you are and come up with a more workable and realistic plan B.
