The Chariot is a symbol of success and triumph, suggesting that the Querent is on a path to victory. The card may also represent war, vengeance, and trouble, indicating that the Querent may need to take a more forceful approach to achieve their goals. The Chariot can also represent presumption, reminding the Querent that they must balance their confidence with humility and caution. Overall, the Chariot suggests that the Querent is in a position of power and control, and that they have the potential to achieve great success.
When the Chariot card is in the reversed position, it can indicate riot, quarrel, dispute, litigation, and defeat. The card suggests that the Querent may need to be more cautious and strategic in their actions, and avoid impulsive or reckless behavior. The Chariot in this position may also represent a need for the Querent to reassess their goals and strategies, and to be open to new approaches and perspectives.

He is not hereditary royalty and he is not priesthood
