Tarot Wands 10
Ten of Wands

Overall meaning
The Ten of Wands represents something that started as a good idea but has now become a burden. It means problems, responsibilities, being overburdened and stressed. It indicates that you feel obligated and limited.

Ten of Wands shows a man struggling to carry two sticks across a square. He carries the ten sticks in front of him, his back and head are bent forward. You don’t see his face, but rather sense the difficulty he has in carrying the canes.

The Ten of Wands indicates that you have taken on too much, in terms of responsibility or work, which has resulted in everything you had built up and worked to achieve being destroyed. It symbolizes hopelessness and dissatisfaction with the circumstances as they are here and now.

The Ten of Wands represents oppression in the form of repressed emotions, held back energy and is an invitation for you to recognize this and set yourself free. It could very well be that you are overloaded in some way. Give yourself permission to follow your feelings and impulses without being hindered by other people’s perception of right and wrong.

Be aware of the pitfalls associated with taking on too much or ignoring your limits of what you are basically willing to do. In other words: learn the art of limitation. Try looking back ten years to see if the same detention pattern was there then. Drawing this card indicates a determination to free yourself from this self-suppression within the next ten weeks to ten months.

Other words that characterize the Ten of Wands are: heavy burdens, overburdened, unhealthy attitude, self-blame, depression, illness, isolation, overburdened, responsibility, stress, problems, weight on shoulders, duty, limited, burnt out, uphill, taken for granted, take on too much, delays, struggle, opposition.

The tarot card is associated with number 10 – which in numerology is often reduced to 1 (the sum of 1+0) which means that you must pay attention to these two numbers in relation to the challenge you are asking the tarot about.

This is often expressed in the way that in the next 10 or 1 days | weeks | months it will be advantageous for you to free yourself from the boundaries or limitations you have set for yourself and your expression, and which are essentially negative for you.

Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn blocks or limits the Sagittarius impulse to communicate and move forward.

I express my vitality and vitality. With ease I free myself from obstacles. I give my energies free rein.
