A brave warrior in the chariot tarot card has been shown standing inside the chariot. He wears the armor decorated with the crescent moons (which is coming into being), with a class, a tunic (willpower) and other chemistry symbols (spiritual changes). Laurel and Star Crown signify victory, success and spiritual growth. Although he seems to be running the chariot, the charioteer does not have any reins – just like a wizard, a stick – it shows that he controls through his desire and strength of mind.
The charioteer stands tall – there is no place for this man to sit, because he is all about taking action and moving forward. On top of their heads there is a umbrella of stars with six-star, who suggests their connection to the celestial world and divine desire. In front of the vehicle there is a black and white sphinx sitting, which represents dualism, positive and negative, and sometimes faces opposing forces. Notice how sphinxs are pulling in opposite directions, but the charioteer uses his will power and resolves to move the chariot in the direction he wants.
A wide river flows behind the chariot, which is a symbol of the need to be in ‘flow’ with the goal of life, moving forward towards your goals and intentions.

On the contrary, however, the chariot tells you to ‘return the truck’ or, as we say Australian, “Chuck You-Y” (AKA “U-Turn”). You can bang your head against a brick wall, when you are trying to pursue a project, in fact, you will need to change your direction or change direction. Or you can lose your motivation and will not feel committed to the result as you started. Therefore, if you are not moving forward according to the plan, then re-evaluate the situation and see if it is a sign that you need to change the course. Then ask yourself: Have the deep reasons have become more challenging? What can I learn here?
Many times, the inverse chariot is a warning that you are removing the obstacles and challenges coming in the way, which prevents you from doing what you are ready to do. It’s all going to be very difficult, and you do not have the will to go. If it is resonated, then wait for a moment and think about things that matter most to you and why you want to achieve this goal. Will you let other people’s opinions dominate you or will it be tough as soon as you are going? Or will you follow through your commitment?
Before taking action, the inverse chariot can be an indication that you are focusing on your energy and your internal processes, such as self-discipline, internal determination and personal commitment. You can house the intentions aligned with your high self. Or, you can use visual and meditation to align your energy with your goals. These internally focused actions are necessary so that when the time comes to work you will be ready.

Check what you can do to improve the situation.
Similarly, the charioteer suggested that you would be trying to manage the details of every minute of your life – but in doing so, you also feel out of control. Loose your grip and let things run your course. Be open to the proposals for help and then be thankful for what you get, even if it does not match perfectly with your expectations. You should not always be on the driver’s seat!
