Seven: The Chariot of the Major Arcana

The Chariot signifies the proud king.  He returns home after a glorious battle.  He has seized new territories to expand the kingdom.  The sphinxes pull in opposite directions, but the warrior king's command is keen and fierce. The wand of power and his own observance brings control over his destiny.  The world will accept the charioteer because he accepts himself and his duties.
Meanings: triumph, success, gentle control over others, travel, and determination.
Reverse: restlessness, unethical victory, and weakness (sometimes in health).


  1. why are the sphinxes black and white?

  2. The colors black and white are opposite colors. Black is usually considered the negative aspects, and white symbolizes positive facets.

  3. Also, if you have noticed, the pillars on the High Priestess card are black and white.
