Ten of Wands

Ten of WandsTake It One Day At A Time

Ten of Wands

For the fiery, energetic suit of Wands, the multiplicity of the number 10 – being the furthest away from the focus and oneness of the Ace – is a danger.  Energy, passion and ambition thrive with focus and single-minded direction, but falter and become weak when spread over several areas.  The Ten of Wands, therefore, shows us the final push toward completion, rather than the completion itself.  There is still more work to do, yet we are exhausted.  Our energy is stretched too thin and is depleted.  Our will – now unfocused and distracted – is wondering away from our purpose.

At this stage, when every part of our being is crying out to give up and stop, we will welcome a sweet relief of not having to continue.  Here, we are in danger of abandoning all our hard work thus far, because we don’t think we can carry on.  This card also represents the burdens we carry, both voluntary and involuntary.  It represents all our duties and the things that we believe rest on our continued performance and effort. The Ten of Wands reminds us to assess our workload.

Work and Finances

The Ten of Wands implies that you have taken too many responsibilities at work and your load is too heavy to bear.  It often indicates micro-managing on your part and inability (or lack of desire) to delegate responsibilities to other team members. Please understand that you simply cannot do it alone. You must find a way to share the workload among the colleagues.  Some of them will be eager to help, if only asked!

When related to finances, the ten of wands may indicate that you have taken on too much debt and you are now almost drowning in it. You need to act now, before your financial situation gets worse. You may need to seek the advice of a professional to get you out of the situation.

Love and Relationship

If you are looking for love, The Ten of Wands suggests that you are so busy with just about everything else, that you don’t have time for a relationship. You will need to consider how to best structure your life to find room and space for romance.

If you are in a relationship, the Ten of Wands shows that you are overwhelmed by your responsibilities.  Be careful with that: before you know it, the relationship itself may start to seem as a burden.  Do take the time to enjoy yourself and time spent with your partner to avoid treating your relationship as yet another chore in your life.
