Story - On my way I find a charioteer, sitting stationary. I ask him what it is to win and be victorious. 'My steeds provide the momentum that I need to charge forward, but without my control and direction I would never get to my destination. You must focus on your goals, leave your doubts behind you and motivate yourself to win the race.' I ask him why then is he sitting still, he does not answer but instead cracks his whip and moves on with haste.
Upright - Triumph over adversity, overcoming life's obstacles, decisiveness and ambition in achieving one's goals, well deserved victory. A period of struggle ending in worldly success. Self control, effort, perseverance. Working within the boundaries of one's life to build up a successful existence.
Ill Dignified or Reversed - A disregard for others, envy, avarice. Loss of control and chaos in one's personal life possibly due to personal flaws. Imbalance. Destruction. A warning against overwhelming ambition and high expectations. The continuation of outdated ideas and traditions.
