The Chariot Tarot Card Spread - A Tarot Spread for Forging a Path

By Tina Gong


Summary of the Chariot Tarot Card Meaning

Once the Fool has made a choice and learned the value of commitment, a stalemate of sorts ends, and the movement towards something begins. The Chariot tests the Fool’s ability to get themselves from one point to another, despite obstacles, surprises, setbacks, and an unruly pair of horses. It teaches the lesson of focus, determination and the exertion of control in order to travel a difficult path towards ones goals.

Light: Movement, direction, determination, focus, travel
Shadow: Sluggishness, aimlessness, wandering

A Note on the Fool's Journey Tarot Spreads: This is part of a series of tarot spreads inspired by the lessons of the Fool’s Journey, represented by the major arcana of the tarot. Since each major arcana card embodies a stage in one’s life journey, a lesson, or an archetype, we can use them as the foundations to explore moments of our own personal journeys. They also happen to be great ways to explore the meanings of each of these tarot cards in a very personal way.
