The Chariot at Work - Pushing Boundaries on the Road to Progress

the chariot aquatic tarot
“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.” Molière

The Chariot takes you on a road trip, and along the way you can expect a bumpy ride.

On the image the charioteer has turned her back on the safety of the walled city, and is moving forward into unknown territory.

She is ready for this challenge, determined to achieve her goal no matter what. She knows it won't be easy, but that doesn't deter her.

Still, at times when the going gets tough, she finds herself wavering, but her willpower and perseverance keep her going until she gets to where she wants to be.

So what is the Chariot telling you in a reading about work and career?

You start a new job or a new project, and perhaps you may even need to move to a new city, or it involves travel.

You may decide to change direction in your career; think of the road less travelled, which scares you a bit, but the urge to do something different and succeed is stronger than your fear.

The Chariot heralds a new beginning, but unlike the Fool, you know the reason for this journey and you have prepared yourself. 

You may be hitting a difficult period in your business. It may be a make-or-break situation, and you need to get through a time of hard work and stress not knowing what the outcome will be.

If you are facing an ongoing struggle, the Chariot reminds you to stay focused on overcoming it and not give up

When the Chariot comes up for a new job or business venture, it indicates a steep learning curve ahead but the reward can be great.

Don't be discouraged by setbacks or difficulties. You can overcome them with tenacity and self-discipline.

The Chariot can indicate a test of skill and ability. Now you have to apply in practice what you have learned on a course. Walk the talk.

No more teacher, mentor or supervisor to hold your hand and correct your mistakes; you're on your own.

The Chariot is also about control; you're sitting in the driver's seat and make your own decisions on where you are headed.

When working with others, you stand your ground and assert your position rather than holding back. This may lead to some conflict, but you don't let this stop you from getting work done and projects completed.

The Chariot can also suggest the strive for independence. You may start your own business, transition from employment to freelancing, or you may get back into work after a longer period of not working.

When this card comes up, you should avoid: 

drifting, lack of focus, aggression, loss of control, depending on others, running away from a problem rather than facing it and sorting it out, being overly controlling rather than sharing responsibility and trusting other people's abilities)

The Chariot is linked to Cancer, so expect this to be an emotional ride. Watch out for overwhelm when you feel the pressure, and have regular breaks on your journey to recharge your batteries!

Warmest wishes,
