Artist Interpretation

The powerful Sumerian god Adad (Hadad) in a golden helmet sits in a chariot pulled by two horses. He has just exited a temple arc decorated with bas-reliefs from the Sumer epoch. The divine charioteer does not hold the reins, and the horses run free, symbolizing the idea does not restrain the natural stream of events.

Adad, the Sumerian god of weather, spends most of his time hurtling around in his chariot and littering the skies with forked lightning. He had several appropriate titles, including the “Lord of the Natural World of Elements,” “Master of Earth,” “the Earth Shaker,” as well as “the Lord of the Clouds and Rains.” Adad represented cosmic elemental powers projected on earth through natural phenomena. He also had a gift to perceive the future.

Card Meaning

The Chariot impersonates victory, triumph, and success. In a broad sense, he incarnates self-control, confidence, commitment, and focus that lead to success. The Chariot also relates to journeys and explorations. He symbolizes a person of self-control and determination who achieved that through careful planning and hard work. Having faith in self and being focused, a person can overcome any obstacles to achieving goals.
