Ten of Wands

Updated: Feb 19

And so, we are on the last card in the Wands suit. From Ace of Wands, the journey till here has been with its ups and downs.

Ten of Wands Tarot

Ten of Wands Meaning - General

What started off as a new passion in the Ace of Wands has probably become a burden at the Ten of Wands. Ten of Wands could mean working too hard and taking on more responsibilities than warranted.

In this card, we see a person burdened by the ten staff he is carrying. This is closing out of a cycle from the Ace of Wands, but with a message to not over-extend oneself. Do not overdo something to the extent that fun goes out of your passionate endeavours.

Ten of Wands in tarot is about shouldering responsibilities, more than you can take. Somewhere along with way, you have over committed, lost way or focus and are feeling completely burned out.

This might also be about carrying the burdens of the past. Are you overthinking the past to the extent that it now bothering your present and not allowing you to move ahead in life. There seems to be too much weight on your shoulders or your mind.

In Ten of Swords, we saw that the person lying down with ten swords on his back is probably acting like a martyr sacrificing things for others and taking more than needed. With a similar meaning, Ten of Wands is more specifically shouldering more than what is needed, making life burdensome and dull.

Let us look at the Ten of Wands in specific contexts of a love tarot reading and career tarot reading. Remember to apply all the above general readings to the below readings as well.

Ten of Wands Love

Love Reading for Relationships

Ten of Wands in love and relationships could indicate one person in the relationship is working too much and too hard at the cost of the relationship.

It could also indicate that one of you is shouldering the lion’s share of responsibilities of the relationship, and one partner has taken the other for granted. One of you seem to be taking a back seat with all burdens falling upon the other.

Clearly the fun and spontaneity has gone out of the relationship. But remember this is the last card of the suit, and hence, is an end and a beginning of a new phase. You need to figure out a way to spread out the burdens and relieve yourself from the extra pressures you are carrying.

Love Reading for Singles

For singles, Ten of Wands in love can symbolize a lot of drudgery. It is all work and no play. You might need to balance out duty and love to attract the right person into your life.

Make time for love and relationships to bring back that passion into your heart.

This card could also signify that you are carrying the weight of previous failed relationships in your mind. You need to lay them to rest for you to be able to turn over a new leaf and experience life all over again.

Ten of Wands Career & Finance

When Ten of Wands appears in career reading, it is a clear indication of burn out. Are you feeling like you are tied to a treadmill and there is no time for peace? You might also be acting over-generous and taking on more than your capacity. Learn to say NO.

Also it might help to delegate some work to your juniors or hive off some work to your colleagues to bring that much needed balance.

Look for smarter and more productive ways to manage projects or assignments. Not every task needs to be an uphill climb.

Financially, you might be feeling burdened with your monetary position. Have you over leveraged yourself and now feeling the pinch of it. Reassess your financial situation holistically to find a solution to rebalance yourself monetarily.
