Ten of Wands

Marseille Tarot (Jean Dodal 1701): Ten of Wands

Wands are also referred to as Staves, Staffs, or Batons. They correspond to the playing card suit of Clubs, and many early tarot decks depict this suit as wooden clubs. This suit represents the element Fire, and the social class of Peasantry. Wands are considered a Masculine suit. Wands typically represent creative or entrepreneurial projects, information, travel, and will - whether it be free will, or strength of willpower.

The Tens typically concern an extreme abundance, which can be positive or negative, such as an abundance of riches or friendships, or an overburdening of work, or pressure and commitment, or even an absolute destruction.

Burden. Responsibility. Hard work. Stress. Achievement. Challenges. Intense pressure. Oppression. Over-commitment.

Most often, the Ten of Wands card carries the meaning of overload and burdening situations where too much responsibility has been taken on by the subject. It is hard to let go of creative projects and responsibility, but you should allow others to help shoulder your burden.

Reversed Meaning: Taking on too much. Avoiding responsibility.

Do not allow your responsibilities and commitments to overburden you, but do not avoid all responsibility for them either. Wearing yourself down to the point where you become ill and neglect your duties would be irresponsible.
