Be careful what you wish for. This powerful card reminds us, as does the 10 of Swords, that at the end of the day, all we have said and done catches up with us. The luxuries we crave are our burdens in turn. This man has “lots of sticks” but he has to carry them to his destination or lose them. Success has a price, and you may have to bear it once you get everything you desire. Fame, power, and wealth are seldom what we thought they would be when we first started along our path. For complete information on this card including how to use it to manifest your desires please try out a copy of The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot—EVER!!

 

Ten of Wands — Rider Deck Blue Box Ten of Wands : Description: A man is bent over in an effort to carry his burden of wands to the distant town. He is labored but shows no sign of quitting and uses his momentum to carry him toward his goal. His load of sticks is both valuable and an albatross around his neck. Whether harvest or punishment, the weight of the wands remains the same. This card is the fulfillment of a lifetime of efforts and energies along the path of Wands. From Ace to Nine our heroes have progressed to this point: the culmination and the reward of ambition and competition.

Prime elements at work in this card

  • Number: Ten. End results. System reset. Sum total. End of the day. Even
  • Suit: Wands. Action, adventure, vitality, endurance, competition, drive
  • Direction: South-Southwest. Over-zealousness, travel. Late night
  • Element: Fire. Aggression, ambition, refusal to quit, dominance, energy

Traditional meaning: Be careful what you wish for. This powerful card reminds us, as does the 10 of Swords, that at the end of the day, all we have said and done catches up with us. The luxuries we crave are our burdens in turn. This man has “lots of sticks” but he has to carry them to his destination or lose them. Success has a price, and you may have to bear it once you get everything you desire. Fame, power, and wealth are seldom what we thought they would be when we first started along our path. Know exactly what you want before you invest a lifetime pursuing it so that when you get it you are still happy to carry the load. This card shows heavy labor or emotional burdens one chooses (or is forced) to carry for a time.

Traditional reversed meaning: Release of burdens or responsibilities. A weight being lifted off of your shoulders. Perhaps shirking responsibilities (check any aspecting cards to verify if this is so).
