The Chariot

The Chariot, the 7th card of the Major Arcana of the tarot, symbolizes dominance and victory. Predictably, it vibrates with a masculine energy. It's also associated with personal will, perseverance and fortitude. The driver of the chariot depicts energy, intensity and focus. When drawn in a reading it reminds us that in order to bring our plans to completion we need to draw upon our most innermost resources, be they emotional or spiritual or both, and galvanize them with  a noble purpose and intent.

On the other hand, if the energy of the Chariot runs amok, and we subvert that passion into negative energy we run the risk of quite literally running 'off the rails' whereby we may find ourselves engaging in relationships and behavior which goes against our better judgment. The life lesson is, don't assume the reins unless you do so with humility and grace.
