What This Card Means to Me
You can’t make progress, whether through direct action or through the need of waiting, without self-discipline. This is typically represented by the dual mounts pulling the chariot of differing colors in traditional depictions. Light and dark. Order and chaos. Good and evil. These energies exist within each of us. One must take the reigns and seize control of these energies to charge ahead with confidence.
