The Chariot is a card of self importance and of control of one’s destiny. Often in Tarot night scenes and the moon represent emotions and psychic abilities. This card is the opposite of that and shows a bright sun, a sun shield and armor. This card is about strength, certainty and the ability to direct your life in the way you know best.
On the shoulder of the warrior is his moon sign. Even when in the physical realm of masculine energy your moon/emotional side is always there to guide you. This card shows someone who knows who they are, what their strengths are and what their purpose is.
On his shoulders sits a bird which I see as your spiritual animal, your soul so to speak along with your moon sign that guides you. This is your intuition and your passion which are always the best tools you have to forge forward and achieve what you are meant to achieve. This is a great card to meditate on to find purpose and be certain of your choices.
