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.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Six of Wands

33c344834aacfe8a99fb82a8695a8bb4

When pulled upright this card is about accomplishing something that is giving you public recognition. You have reached your goals and you are being celebrated for it. You may have received an award as well. This card shows that you have found your strengths and how to use them to manifest the outcomes you want in life. The card before this (the five of wands) is a card about confusion. Pulling the 6 of wands shows that you have gotten past this confusion and have managed to achieve your goals. Although this card is mostly positive it is worth noting that a downside to this card could be that all this success is bringing self-importance, a large ego, and arrogance.

When pulled in reverse this card is about doubting your abilities and your abilities to reach your goals as a whole. You might be feeling negative about yourself because not only have you been failing yourself but you have been failing others This is telling you that you are lacking the confidence and ambition you need to achieve your goals. In order to reach your goals you need support from those around you to give you the recognition you need.

Here is a tarot spread to help you gain confidence in yourself so you can better achieve your goals. Take the 6 of wands out of the deck and meditate on your self doubts becoming your strengths. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Four of Wands

bd00ecaaef0404ece2bf07acee775c8c

When pulled upright this card is about celebration. It is also about a happy home environment. The number 4 is a sign of stability. This card also says that is is now a good time to get closer with your family and friends. This card could be about a time in the holiday’s when you’re surrounded by your loved ones. On the other hand if you’ve been working on a goal or a project a big milestone is coming up. You are going to want to celebrate this and you are more than justified to do so.

When pulled in reverse this card is about there being a lack of stability or happiness in your home environment. There is probably a lot of tension between you and your loved ones. Maybe you have accomplished something and expect your loved ones to want to celebrate with you. Instead you come home to a complete lack of support. This is likely causing you to feel uncertain about your relationships and is making you wonder who you can really count on.

Below is a spread to help you celebrate your accomplishments. First I would take out the four of wands and meditate with it. While you meditate think of your accomplishments and all the reasons you have to celebrate. Then shuffle the cards and pull them as you see fit.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Three of Wands

08aaa3eeca6764adbf987d53f3be9bfe

When pulled upright this card is about you getting ready to seriously, or you’re already seriously, make plans for the future. Because you’ve planned, everything is going smoothly. Your plans are becoming actions. This card can also tell you that there are opportunities coming that can widen your horizons. This is also reminding you to stay open to all opportunities because good ones could be coming your way. Just because you have certain plans don’t object opportunities that go against them. Change can be good and it can take you out of your comfort zone. This card can also talk about how you are in control. This card is big on foresight and vision. This card can also be about needing to travel to find the truths that you are looking for. This card typically says you should travel to land across the water. You may just find some new opportunities.

When pulled in reverse this card is about starting a personal journey but not achieving anything from it. This could be caused by delays or total blocks. This card reminds you that even though you haven’t met your goals that it is not for nothing. This experience you’re having is actually helping your personal strength. This card is also saying that you need to start making plans for your future. This is definitely true if you haven’t established any long term goals. The most common meaning is that future changes are going to happen and you need to start planning for them. You also need to keep an eye out for better options.

Here is a spread all about making future plans. First I would take the three of wands out and meditate on this card. As you meditate I would think about what future plans you may have. Then shuffle and pull the cards as you see fit.

Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 21: The World

83bcd688507b2555b075c8ddf4b48f1c67f13e22

When pulled upright it is about experiencing a great unity and wholeness. It marks when your inner world and outer world (self and other) become one. Some traditions call this experience enlightenment or nirvana. This happens when you recognize you are profoundly linked with all other things and all living things all move to one rhythm. This card is also about fulfilment, achievements, and completion. Everything you have been working on is beginning to pay off. You have completed a major milestone and through this have become resilient enough to get through life’s challenges. When this card comes up it can speak of the completion of a major milestone such as a long-term project, study, birth of a child, marriage, graduation, or anything else like that. This card can also show that you want to give back to your community.

When pulled in reverse this card can show that you are reaching the end of an era. You may have a bunch of accomplishments but when you look back on them you may still feel an emptiness yet to be filled. You may feel like something is missing from your life. Maybe you aren’t feeling connected to what you’re doing or to others. Only you can figure out what is missing.

Here is a tarot spread that focuses on the world card. This spread is great for finding what brings you joy. First I would take the world card out of the deck and meditate while focusing on what joy feels like to you. Then I would shuffle the cards and pull them using your preferred method.

worldspread

Card 1: This represents what brings you joy and what makes you whole; or, what you need to get there and what you have to deal with; the issues that block your happiness.

The other cards represent the gifts of the four elements, all the ingredients needed to be complete and whole.

Card 2: This card represents the element of earth: meaning the body and material things. This includes basic, simple pleasures, like food, shelter and sex–tangible resources and useful stuff.

Card 3: This card represents the element of water: your intuition, meaningful dreams that can help you define your wants and needs, your soul’s work; and your emotional gifts.

Card 4: This card represents the element of air: your intelligence, knowledge you have, the ability through experience to decide and discern.

Card 5: This card represents the element of fire: this is your passion, the source of your energy (or what’s blocking it), life, that which energizes and inspires you.

Pay attention to which suits fall in which positions: cards that reinforce the position (for example cups in the water position) indicate strength in that area, whereas suits that oppose the position (for example wands in the water position) may point to a need to work on that aspect of yourself to bring yourself into balance.
