If we closely look at the Chariot Tarot card, we can observe the following things:

  • A powerful combatant/warrior standing on a chariot pulled by two horses/sphinxes.
  • The warrior in the card seems to be holding a wand, wearing a laurel and a crown.
  • He is also seen wearing an armor adorned with two crescent moons and a tunic with a square.
  • In addition to this, the two sphinxes/horses are contrasting in color (black and white) which symbolizes duality, and are pulling the chariot in two opposite directions as well.

All these signs and symbols have a deep-rooted conclusions which helps in deciphering the chariot tarot meaning.
