Symbolic of carrying burdensome things or people, Amos 2:13
Used to accomplish one’s goal with honest work, integrity, and self-control
Vision: Riding in a wagon: chances for quick advancement at the job are good. Losing a wheel: you will be faced with an embarrassing situation—someone’s thickheadedness makes you mad. Falling out of a wagon: you are very clumsy and are not doing well; you could lose your job.
A mule is pulling the wagon: you are influenced by people who are dangerous or stupid.
If people are pulling the wagon (a rickshaw): you want to influence other people or take advantage of them.
