A crowned conqueror stands between four pillars representing the four elements. His chariot is drawn by a black and a white horse, pulling in opposite directions. The Chariot pictures turbulent and unrest but the conqueror is triumphant because he has reconciled the diametrically opposed forces.
Traveling the path of life, the Fool now experiences inner conflict and discovers that true progress is made only when opposing forces are balanced and integrated. This card symbolizes that adverse powers can be conquered by will power and self-control. Ascendancy over trouble. A middle course. Balance of hard work and periods of productive solitude are required. Travel or journey.
Defeat. Failure to assert self-discipline. Collapse of plans. Loss of control. Vengeance.
