Releasing Burdens With The Ten Of Wands Tarot

No beating around the truth here on this card, the Ten of Wands shows that some heavy-duty issues are being addressed or have been. It is what is known as the burden card. The good news is that the Tens in Tarot represent the completion of a cycle and with the Ten of Wands, it is indicating an end will be in sight!

With the Ten of Wands you have taken on an extra burden, whether it be in your personal relationship, family, health or career. Understand that when this card showing a burden you are carrying, it also tells you it is only temporary, so keep that in mind when you are dealing with whatever has come into your life making it more complicated or harder. Know that if you are willing to put in the work in the present moment, the rewards or a good solution in your favor will come later.

For example, you may take on an extra part time job to help get you out of debt or take that dream vacation. Re-inventing your life through divorce or an unexpected death also falls into a burden you were not prepared for but eventually you will bring balance once again to your life. Helping others in times of need always comes back to you tenfold whether is help with moving or when they need help because of illness.

When the Ten of Wands appears reversed, it is often a sign that you are feeling as though all the weight is on your shoulders with no one helping you out. It can also indicate a personality trait of trying to be everything to everyone, then finding yourself over-extended and exhausted. Start putting your own well-being first. Learn to take a pass at invitations you don’t want to go to, saying no when it interferes with your own peace of mind and learn how to share the work and responsibility. No one will think anything less of you. If you are not functioning well, then you are helping no one, least of all yourself.

In general, the Ten of Wands represents taking on more than is usual for you. This can both be in a good way and a challenging issue in your life. Working your butt off to get that promotion at work is a good thing but still extra burden. Having your whole household come down with the flu is not good.

Career, Love, Money, Health, Spirituality

Career: When this card shows up addressing your workplace, it may indicate your workload may be unrealistically heavy. Either by your choice or others. Also, being extremely unhappy with your job will show the Ten of Wands in your reading.

Love and Romance: The appearance of this card usually shows a relationship has hit a challenging time. Whether it is your partner or you, extra support is needed and something needs to be looked that is out of balance in the relationship. If you have been searching for that true love, after awhile it seems to be a burden to just get out there and look. This card sometimes indicates that maybe it is time to take a break and recoup with a new perspective on what you are looking for in love.

Money: When the Ten of Wands shows up in the financial area, it indicates issues of lack or worrying over excessive debt. Worry never put money in the bank, only good financial decisions. Be creative in your financial problem-solving and don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it. Put it down on paper, what income is coming into your home and what is going out and see where there can be some adjustments.

Health: This card in a reading in regards to health usually shows that stress may have taken a serious toll on your body. Find some stress busters and then use them. Getting enough sleep, supplements that address the nervous system, as stress depletes the vitamins, minerals and electrolytes in your body. Treat yourself to a massage, take just a few moments a day to allow your mind to shut off and your body to relax.

Spirituality: Reach out for moral and spiritual support when feeling overwhelmed in your life. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance if you need it. Learn your breaking point and ask your higher self, Divine universe or whomever you reach out to in prayer to help you find someone to help you energetically carry your burden with you. The major point being made here is taking care of yourself and not allowing things to spiral down to a place that you feel helpless in addressing whatever issues you are dealing with.

Susan Z’s Verdict
