Ten Wands Tarot: An Explanation

Ten Wands Tarot

On my Ten Wands Tarot Card, a person is leaning in front of a pillar; it’s tipping over, the person is preventing it from falling over them. Behind the person, the wands are standing up straight.

Oftentimes, the weight of our responsibilities can seem too overwhelming, too much, and we feel stuck. Unable to look at the path ahead and smell the flowers. 

The weight on the person’s shoulders is simply too much.

When you have this feeling, and the Ten Wands Tarot Card shows up, the card wants to remind you that there is always a way forward. You have to find ways to lighten the load – you do not have to carry the responsibilities of the world on your shoulders, all by yourself. 

We often think that we do, but we don’t. 

The Ten Wands Tarot Card asks to learn how to delegate, let go of needing to direct everything, and trust that others can make sensible decisions. 

Progress, innovation, creativity happen when we a room in our mind to think and feel without worrying too much. The pillar can represent anxiety, fear, worry, and if we allow that to run our minds, we cannot succeed with what we have set out to do. 

Again, allow others to take the lead on minor tasks to focus on the bigger picture. Trust that people around you have your best interest at heart. 

The Ten Wands Tarot Card can also represent the need for courage, bravery and tenacity if you are in a position where you are not making a decision. Hiding behind an illusory wall, this is the time to shatter the wall of self-doubt, lack of self-worth and low confidence and make that decision.

The Ten Wands Tarot Card says you do not need to hide who and what you are anymore. You can stand up straight and be your most authentic self. If there is anyone in your life manipulating, exercising unnecessary force towards you or any of that sort, this might be the time to cut them loose. 

Life is incredibly short, do not allow anyone to force you into hiding. Stand in your authenticity and let it shine bright. Step aside, and let the pillar fall. 

Further, the Ten Wands Tarot Card can represent an internal struggle with your inner demons. The Wand Suit is of the fire element, and most often than not, we are the problem with our progression. Of course, outside forces can be unbearable; simultaneously, we have to take responsibility and make whatever change is necessary.

Become friends with your inner demons, understand them, tolerate them, and live your life as best that you can. 

If you are doing a Psychic Tarot Reading for yourself, remember that you always have to interpret the card in relation to the other cards that show up. 

How to work through the energies of Ten Wands Tarot Card 

We are our own best self-healer. I have often said this, and I repeat it. We always have to begin with ourselves, and we can do so much healing in the comfort of our own home. Of course, we should ask for help when we cannot move forward. Still, we can do so much. 

Learn to delegate and share responsibilities

You are not alone; we never truly are, even when it feels like it. 

Assign tasks to other people, most of the time, they will accept.

Learn to trust yourself and others. 

Trusting ourselves and others is never easy. We have deceived ourselves so many times before and been misled by others. 

Still, learn to trust others, open yourself up to see that people will be there for you. 

Understand and learn from your inner demons 

Anxiety, fear, worry, stress are all a part of the human experience. We are meant to go through those experiences. At the same time, we should not allow them to rule us constantly. 

Meditation, journaling, and talking will help you understand what they represent and how you can move forward with your life in a healthy way.
