On The Chariot Wild Unknown Tarot, we can see a horse looking out from the card with her mane flying freely in the wind. She faces us as if she is not afraid to face anything – problems, joys, and conflicts – directly. She does not hide from life! She fully and completely embodies all that life has to offer and believes in her ability to take on any situation. The Chariot shows how important it is to master how you present yourself to the world. This card is sometimes associated with the ego, and while the term ‘ego self’ has a bad reputation, the fact that there is a healthy self is really important. Having a strong idea of who we are as individuals is essential for us to be authentic, set goals, and live our lives in a way that works for us. This is a card about autonomy, about your ability to choose how you manifest in your life.
The Chariot Wild Unknown Tarot is black and white, except for the red corners. The red color here is darker, unlike some of the deeper colors we have seen in the previous cards. The use of color here is more commanding. Red is the color of confidence and assurance. Four is a stable number, and the placement of the colors in the four corners indicates autonomy in relation to The Chariot. The body of the horse becomes less and less detailed towards the end of the card. This shows that The Chariot can channel energy outside as well as within and direct it through her own determination. For better or for worse, Chariot is so focused on the task at hand that nothing else seems to matter. There is a special determination at work in this card.
There is some point in viewing the Major Arcana as three sets of seven cards (with the addition of The Fool). In this view, The Chariot Wild Unknown Tarot is the last card in the first row. In a way, this card reminds a young person, someone who is definitely mature but may have a limited view of his overall development. The Chariot is determined to go in a certain direction, but on the dark side, its energy can sometimes become way too motivating and powerful. This horse wears a chain around her neck, decorated with an iridescent bead. This symbolizes the mastery she has achieved so far. She is proud of all the ways she has grown so far. The Chariot’s challenge from here is to stay open to all she has to learn, instead of succumbing to an overblown ego! On her forehead is a black crescent moon, which suggests that her soul is still open to receiving new wisdom. But another challenge for The Chariot is to reconcile her knowledge of her soul with the steadfastness of her ego.
Above the horse, we see the familiar theme of rays of light emanating from a singularity. This time the source of the rays is a round, white sphere, possibly the sun. These emitted rays represent pervasive, powerful, and unstoppable energy. The Chariot Wild Unknown Tarot is a card of action. The carriage is actively performing, going, moving. The rays emitted here are black and white. Monochromatic colors show meaningless energy. Sometimes, we need to get out of our surroundings and start taking ourselves seriously. The Chariot asks you to set goals, to believe in your ability to overcome adversity. When you maximize your willpower, you can completely succeed in the face of difficulties. This Chariot is your confidence, your bravery, and your inner warrior. At a point in your life when you feel the happiness of an achievement or a victory, you are riding on her back. Build a relationship based on this part of yourself. Try to “see” your inner chariot. The more focused you are, the easier it is to feel his presence and stand firmly on her back. With a steady gaze and constant footsteps, you will go straight to wherever you dream of going.
