The Chariot is the card of triumph, success, determination, and action. The Chariot shows a brave warrior standing tall in his chariot. He is all about taking charge and moving forward. He is not about thinking or feeling, but about doing. Although this is a great card to get in a financial or career reading, it bodes more ominously for matters of love.
The Chariot knows what he wants and how to get it. Although the two sphinxes in the front of the carriage are pulling in different directions, the Chariot has a strength of steel. He pushes them to go his way and to follow his will.
If you are asking about love advice, and you draw the Chariot, that means that you are advised to be clear about what you want. You have what it takes to conquer anything you set your eyes upon. You are Romeo confidently climbing the walls of Juliet’s house, even if it’s a risky act that summons death. But what you feel may not stem from an emotional connection. Instead, you may only be up for the challenge of excitement and the glorious feeling of winning over someone. This love advice could go the other way around, and the person in your thoughts may feel this way.
For love, the Chariot as advice means that you should not get in the way. The Chariot only moves forward — it does not stop for anyone. They have no time for thinking; they only act. This person is hell-bent on winning you over. They are determined to move toward you, no matter the consequences. There’s no use stopping someone as greatly determined as them. Remember what happened to Romeo even when the rest of the world stopped him?
For singles, the Chariot as love advice means you are in a place of self-love. You are whole and complete. But in the quest to find love, don’t forget to stop at intersections and be wary of your surroundings. Your determination might blind you from what truly matters. The desire to conquer is strong, but don’t forget to be considerate of others. This could also mean that a person with a Chariot has set their eyes on a goal — and you cannot stop them. This goal could either be you or their career.
For new and potential relationships, the Chariot as love advice means they rejoice in the trophy of the conquest — and that trophy is you. They feel joyous because they have finally got the prize in their hands. But what happens now? Does this excitement last long now that they have finally achieved their goal? Communicate the road you want the relationship to take moving forward. Encourage them to be honest with their vision for the future — start from there.
For existing relationships, the Chariot as advice means that they see you as an instrument in achieving their goals. They may only think about their dreams right now. If you want to take the relationship to the next level, your partner may not share the same feeling now; they are too focused on their own dreams. But they don’t want to let you go because they think you can help them achieve what they want. Use this time to take care of yourself. Do the things that will make you happy.
If you are asking about reconciliation with an ex, the Chariot as love advice shows that they are moving on from the relationship. They are no longer looking back, as the Chariot would do. Your ex enjoyed the experiences you shared, but they have a lot of goals they want to accomplish. They would rather put their determination into chasing their dreams instead of going back to a past relationship. You should also move on and enjoy the present moment.
