This card represents conquest. Success, victory through hard work. A well balanced life. Triumph over ill health and money difficulties. An ability to resist temptation indicated. Control over forces of nature.

Trouble and turmoil will be conquered through your confidence and control. Any success will be a result of applying these factors to the situation. You will wonder if you should pursue a plan or continue a project, but will be driven to do so, and a perplexing dilemma will be resolved for the time being. You could also have an opportunity to be filmed or taped, or to work with film or tape. Plans or schedules will be discussed with your relatives, but you'll feel pressured by time or other commitments.

Determination. You need to focus completely, seize the time, get in the race and win it. Cultivate the ability to withstand the rigours of what is required. Striving towards your goal can be as satisfying as attaining it. You need to be strong.

Adversity, possibly already overcome. Conflicting influences. Turmoil. Vengeance. Success. Possibly, a voyage or journey. Escape. Rushing to a decision. Need to pay attention to details. Urgency to gain control of one's emotions.

You will have to use the strength of your will to overcome obstacles. You need to be determined, self-disciplined, and hard working. If you are, you will triumph over any difficulties or any people who are trying to limit you. This struggle will ultimately temper you and make you stronger. This is an important card for disabled people, advising that a very successful life can be built up within the limitations that have been put on you; you only have to want it enough.

On a deeper level, the chariot is telling you that you must come to terms with your own aggressive impulses. Aggression is part of human nature, part of your innate survival mechanism. Aggression cannot be simply suppressed; to do so will only turn it inward on yourself, leaving it thereafter to manifest in the form of physical illness. Aggression can be very destructive, but it is also a powerful energy that can be channelled creatively.

Chariot - Reversed Tarot Card Meanings
Reversed, the Chariot suggests that we may feel as if we have very little control over recent situations. Understandably, this applies to the situation in America, but also to our personal lives, where we may feel that there is nothing left we can do about certain things. You may have lost steering power over the opposing forces and you are now at their mercy. You may feel dragged through time, in whatever direction fate takes you.
While the feeling of loss of power can be quite demoralising, the key is to grab onto the reigns once more and try to steer your situation into some more certain territory. It may be a good time to look at what you can control and what you cant control. Dont allow yourself to be worried about that which is out of your control theres nothing you can do about it. Instead, focus your energies on what IS in your control. Examine what you can do to change the situation. At this stage, you need to be able to feel as if you have at least some direction, because currently you feel pushed and pulled around in the sea of fate.

You are collapsing under pressure and losing your self-control. Your aggression is being channelled in the wrong direction - wildly at other people, at fate, at circumstances. This is a complete waste of your energy and resources. Redefine your aggression as determination and willpower, stop clinging weakly to unrewarding ideas, habits, people, and objects and move forward.

Life is unbalanced and passions are uncontrolled. There is victory but it is reached by cheating or unethically. A journey or trip planned is postponed. Failure. To lose at the last minute something otherwise in your grasp. Sudden collapse of plans. Overwhelmed. Failure to face reality.
