The Chariot Tarot Card Meanings – Reversed
Your progress is halted, success is a distant dream. One obstacle after another has stood in your way, and your victory is a long way off on your current tack. The battle you currently face is against odds you may not overcome.
You have struggled through, you have struggled on, and gotten past this point where all hope seemed lost. You may not have gotten through it well, but it is, at least, in your past. Time to look forward with better plans.
You are stagnated, your wheels broken, all forward motion stopped. It’s time to take a look around and see if there is a better way to see your way through. If not, then all you can do is buckle down and know this isn’t going to turn out how you hoped.
If this tarot card is in your future, it may be time to rethink your current course, as it is yet avoidable. The path you’re on will lead to certain destruction, turn back while you still can. At this point it is definitely time to examine your plans and work to change the course your chariot is on before your wheels shatter.
