Similar to the Fool, the fellow in this card is on a journey. However this guy has definitely got a lot more experience. In preparation for the voyage he had the wisdom to acquire a vehicle: it makes things a lot easier. The weird card out of the bunch again is Surrealist. Surrealist personifies the Chariot, making it the Slave. This deck’s brutally honest symbolism is endearing because it makes you think. Sometime this deck reveals bad behavior patterns that need to be addressed.
On this card Langustl kept it simple, really simple, as there is only minimal symbolism accompanying the wheel of the Chariot and the pair of hands holding the reigns.
Diary’s version actually shows the Charioteer up close, as if the viewer is sitting backwards on the back of the Chariot’s draft animal. Behind the man is the spirit of the wolf, an omnivorous hunter on the prowl.
The Chariot in bifrost is a magic carpet. In reality though if you look at the alien, his mind may be the Chariot, the flying saucer that lights his vision. This charioteer roams the astral plane in the spirit of victory.
