Ten of Wands

The Ten of Wands card or the tenth card in the Suit of Wands is not a very positive card to draw.  This card shows someone that has a heavy weight that he is carrying.  He sees where he is going, but he has a long way to get there.

The Ten of Wands represents having a burden or being overworked in life.


The past with the Ten of Wands shows that you are in a place where you feel that you are tied down.  You don’t feel free, and you are, but you have to take time to think about your burdens and figure out how to release yourself from them.  The Ten of Wands can represent your childhood when you needed people older than you to help you mature.  Something traumatic may have happened to you, which caused you to have to mature faster.


The present with the Ten of Wands shows that you are stuck in life, but there is a way out.  You will have challenges that will cause you not to be able to move forward, but if you go slow, you will keep moving. It may feel as if you are weighed down and unable to even take a step, but summon the will to keep moving to get beyond the obstacle.


The future of the Ten of Wands card shows that you need to not set your life up with one choice, but you need to have many choices in case something goes wrong and does not work out like you hoped that it would.  The future will not be easy, though, and you have to work towards something that you want to do in your life.  Set goals and learn to feel better.  Hard work will feel hard, and you will feel like you cannot escape in life.


Your work with the Ten of Wands shows that you might be in a difficult position right now, but things will be better after taking a break.  You have to be off and on again, so taking a break can help you do better in your job.  If you feel that you have to deal with too many things at once, you need to lessen what you do and learn to take a break.  Divide up the things you are responsible for and do the most important work first.


Your love for the Ten of Wands shows that you have accomplished your goals in love, and you might even be married.  If you have a problem in your relationship, you need to address it and not hide things.  Tackle your problems and get done with them.  Don’t let bad things get in the way of a good relationship with your partner. This can be a challenge, but a good relationship is worth fighting for in life.


The friendship of the Ten of Wands shows that you will feel like you have a connection with them, and you will have a few best friends that you can count on.  Make sure they can count on you as well. Friendship should never be one sided so do not fear sharing what you need and allow your friends to do the same.


The finances of the Ten of Wands show that you will have a time of not earning much, and you will feel stuck.  Don’t hide that you are struggling and tell someone.  Make a plan, and don’t hold on to too many worldly things.  Sell them if you need to.  If you don’t know how, then research it.  Maybe you have something worth money that can help you in your life.


The health of the Ten of Wands card shows that you will be more stressed than normal, and you need to try to calm down. This is not a good card for your health.  You have to leave problems unsolved and learn to take control of your life by taking a break and relaxing.  Don’t overwork and try to get a balance. Find a way to meditate or others ways to relax.


The Ten of Wands card shows that your spiritual side feels too responsible.  Even if this is your own self-esteem issue, you show this to others and show off.  You are doing too much, and you are getting tired.  Some will feel like they do more than they should, while others don’t do enough.  Try to pass out the work, especially if there is no leader.  Do this so that you can feel balanced and so that you will not feel so burdened and responsible for so many things.


The number ten is special because it represents the number 1 but on a much higher level.  The tens number can also be seen as a new cycle.  The Ten of Wands can mean a burden is in your life, which is not positive and will bring you stressful times.  You have to work to make this stress go away.  Sometimes a ten will mean that you are starting a new chapter in your life, but you need to make sure that no negative things are creeping in when you start a new cycle.
