You are Strength
Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.
This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion’s hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden’s steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion’s mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one’s personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

Impulse management? Really, Fanny?
I’m not known to be impulsive…well, maybe there was that head I lopped off that one time, but usually I am pretty judicious about most things. Exept in times of war. Then I am just flat out bloodthirsty..
I am thinking it stands more for a steadfast friend…which, all modesty aside, I am.
I know you are, Fanny. Athos would not speak so highly of you if it were not true.
You are The Chariot
Triumph, Victory, Overcoming Obstacles.
The chariot is one of the most complex cards to define. On its most basic level, it implies war, a struggle, and an eventual, hard-won victory. Either over enemies, obstacles, nature, the beasts inside you, or to just get what you want. But there is a great deal more to it. The charioteer wears emblems of the sun, yet the sign behind this card is the moon. The chariot is all about motion, and yet it is often shown as stationary. It is a union of opposites, like the black and white steeds. They pull in different directions, but must be (and can be!) made to go together in one direction. Control is required over opposing emotions, wants, needs, people, circumstances; bring them together and give them a single direction, your direction. Confidence is also needed and, most especially, motivation. The card can, in fact, indicate new motivation or inspiration, which gets a stagnant situation moving again.

ooc: Thought this was interesting!
That seems quite a fitting card for you, Captain Barbossa. You are a paradox, and always in motion. It it is quite a feat to keep up with you and your penchant toward change. The Chariot is a card of Mastery. *smirks*
OOC: This is very interesting! Fanny could contemplate that one ALL DAY! *g*
