Symbol of unstoppable movement and illumination, the Chariot is the archetypal emblem of energy on the go. It is swiftness and readiness, the warrior on a mission. Like the sun that blazes in the sky each day, so too does the Chariot carry on as if fueled by a never-fading light of internal inspiration. The Chariot signals a time of moving and doing, an opportunity and a need to go for goals with gusto. While the Lovers represents a heart bound with human affection, the Chariot is the heart that quests for personal glory or for further spiritual wisdom and attainment. In the most literal sense, the Chariot is a vehicle-the means by which a person can get to where they are going. This vehicle might be an actual car, or it might be understood metaphorically as a symbol of the medium through which one has chosen to attain success.
