Tarot 7 - The Chariot Picture

Upright - The Chariot is all about moving forward. It's not just about charging ahead, but rather seeing where you want to go, picking up the reins, taking control of inner and outer forces, and directing everything forward. Hence, it is a card of great determination and confidence, motivation and leadership. Without these, there's no making the chariot go where you want it to go.

Upside-down - Turn the chariot upside-down and no one is going anywhere. At its worst, the reversed Chariot is not merely about a loss of control and direction, but the complete loss of any means to get where you're going. You won't be leading anyone to victory, there's no fighting the war, let alone winning it. Anything inside, motivations, determination, energy, or outside of you is not working, not moving. You are stuck.

Creature – Pegasus is one of the best known fantastical creatures in Greek mythology, a winged divine horse. The symbolism of Pegasus varies with time. Symbol of wisdom and especially of fame from the Middle Ages until the Renaissance, he became one symbol of the poetry and the creator of sources in which the poets come to draw inspiration.
