Ten of Wands
Ten of Wands
- Burden, responsibility, hard work, stress, achievement, ambition, drive, oppression, vitality
The Ten of Wands is a card of coming full circle and suggests that you have finally found success after a long period of hardship and struggles. You are now able to enjoy the rewards of your hard work andcan finally celebrate your success. You have come a long way to get to this point and have invested a lot of time and effort, so enjoy this achievement while you can. The Ten of Swords reminds you, however, that with success comes responsibility and now you must work to maintain this success and to ensure that your hard work wasn't wasted.
The Ten of Wands reminds us of how much work we all take on in our lives and that sometimes the responsibilities and burdens of everything that we do can often weigh us down and break us. It's easy to overdo it because you don't realise how much you're working until it hits you hard. This card suggests that you have a lot on your plate right now and have bitten off more than you can chew, and you are breaking under the pressure of your responsibilities. The Ten of Swords urges you to stop and take a break from your responsibilities, and during this time you should re-evaluate your priorities and find a good balance between your work and home life. Set yourself time out periods in order to give yourself time to rest and relax.
Ten of Wands - Reversed
- Taking on too much work, avoiding responsibility, scheming, running into difficulties
The Ten of Wands in reversed form suggests that you are holding onto a lot of negativity right now about the challenges that you have recently overcome. This burden that you bear is unnecessary and will only hold you back in life. The reversed Ten of Wands reminds you that the source of your negativity is already behind you. You have already defeated it so why are you still dwelling on it. All of the hard work you did to overcome the challenges will all be for nothing if you can't put it behind you. Is it really worth it?
The Ten of Wands in this position could also suggest that you are refusing to face the consequences of your actions by trying to avoid responsibility of the situation. This is a selfish thing to do and the Ten of Swords warns that by going down this road you will lose credibility not only with yourself but everyone around you, especially those who have to pick up the slack for your mistakes. This card urges you to own up and take responsibility in order to move forward with your life with no regrets.
