Ten of Wands

Ten of Wands

You’re worn out! Back off, take a time out, and let someone else handle things for a while.

Your Life Reading

Relationships

Some relationships become a burden. When this happens, have the presence of mind to put them aside. Relationships involve more than one person. When you've done all you can do to make a relationship a success, there's no shame in withdrawing from a bad situation.

Work

Over-extending yourself on a regular basis is not a sign of strength: it's evidence of poor judgment. You cannot perform at your best when exhausted. There are too many irons in the fire. Review your values and make tough choices, letting go of work that isn't critical.

Spirituality

When we are exhausted, we tend to feel disconnected from Spirit. Restore yourself (and your spirit) by scheduling regular quiet time. Guard this appointment with contemplative silence as jealously as you would an appointment with a life-saving doctor. Disconnect and reconnect.

Personal Growth

Knowing your own limits is a sign of maturity. Don't take on more than you can reliably handle. It's better to be respected for saying "No" than hated for saying "Yes" and failing to deliver. When unreasonable demands are made, point them out and sidestep them.

Ten of Wands Meaning

Card Suit: Wands

Suit Number: 10

Significant Times or Dates

Between December 13th and 21st.

Symbols and Insights

Most RWS-inspired decks depict a stooped, overburdened figure on this card. He has gone as far as sheer Will can take him; he is on the verge of collapse. There comes a point when too much is too much, and it's time to re-evaluate your approach to the problem.

Some RWS-inspired decks depict a distant village in the background of the card. The village is the light at the end of the tunnel: a reminded that the destination is close at hand. Your own "way out" may be as simple as declining an opportunity you lack the time or energy to complete.

Fullness has been exceeded, and the energy of the Wands suit becomes spoiled and over-extended. As a result, weÕve become slaves to our own intentions; a little searching, though, will help us find the key to escaping our self-made prisons.

Though woven tightly together, the ten Wands seen here are as compressed as they can be. Adding another would likely cause an explosion! Intent and action have reached their limit; it's time to try another way of solving the problem at hand.
