The Chariot is about exercising your willpower to reach your goal. This is a card of control, determination, but also of opposites that need to be kept in balance. The Ace of Cups represents a new beginning in love, inspiration, intuition and it's about letting your heart lead the way. The combination of the Chariot and the Ace of Cups points to a new relationship that manifests after a great deal of effort.
To understand the elemental relationships between the cards, we should always take into account their actual meaning. The elements of the cards are Water (Chariot) and Water (Ace of Cups). The elements are neutral and rather friendly to each other, but they can lead to excessive passivity or inertia, not being able to manifest their energies in a way that would bring drastic change. With a high amount of water energy, a situation may need to reach a certain emotional maturity, before it can be changed and transformed.
