There is still discussion about the identity of the figure depicted on the Chariot in the Tarot. What is certain, however, is that it is a winner, a strong and powerful figure, on whom fate smiles, and who has achieved great success using his resources.
It was believed to be the God Osiris, the God Mars (god of war), but also Alexander the Great at the edge of the world, driving his legendary flying chariot (an allegory of pride).
Whoever this champion is, he is standing straight up and proud on the chariot of victory (pulled by two horses that he is managing to guide without the use of reins).
The Chariot card represents a success, or the commitment of the querent in seeking personal success. This success can be of any kind, such as success in the field of love. However, it is more likely to be material success, like getting a job, earning money or getting a compliment for something accomplished.
Love, however, is not excluded from interpretation, but it does indicate its more “practical” side. For example, it is unlikely to represent generic success in conquering the person we desire, but it could indicate a very precise action on our part that brings us closer to the person we desire, and puts us “on their radar”.
It can indicate the need to become aware of one’s own resources, which are instead constantly underestimated, generating, among other things, dissatisfaction.
Inner discipline (not without effort), resulting in control over the situation, and therefore in circumstances being resolved in our favor.
Someone who has learned to control their feelings, perhaps too much.
Know how to manage opposing forces, symbolized by the two horses pulling the Chariot, which one must manage to drive and balance.
