Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Ten of Wands

10 of wands

When pulled upright this card is about having no more struggle left. The last few cards have all been about getting through conflict but at this point you’ve made it through. All your work has payed off and you’ve actually been rewarded for it. You are currently experiencing abundance and prosperity. The other side to all of this is now you have a lot of responsibility. In your group of friends and family you are the only real problem solver. This in itself can bring up a whole new set of challenges. And now that you have reached your success you have the responsibility to maintain it. What you need to watch out for is to not become overwhelmed and lose control. You can do this by learning to prioritize and learning how to figure out what issues are truly relevant and which aren’t. When you have this card come up it kind of is talking about how you are achieving all these great things one after the other but that all of these achievements are quite overwhelming and cause you to have a lot of responsibility. Then despite your success you keep looking at others and feel like you aren’t accomplishing as much as they are. You need to understand that you cannot do everything. You need to let some things go and just be happy with what you’ve got going on.

When pulled in reverse this card is about you feeling burdened by circumstances that you really don’t even need to deal with. Think about what in your life is making you happy and what isn’t. Take everything that isn’t and toss it. If it isn’t adding any value to your life then it isn’t worth your time.

Here is a quick and easy spread for figuring out what you need to let go of so you can be a happier you. First I would take the ten of wands out of the deck and meditate on it while focusing on the areas in your life that aren’t bringing you joy. Then shuffle and pull your cards using your preferred method.
