It is possible that you will need both. 

Either you yourself will take on a task that will require all your strength and even more, or you will be entrusted with a task that will seem impossible to you, at least at first. 

But, if it’s worth it, brace yourself and take the risk. 
But before starting, check if you really have to do everything alone, or will there be helpers?

The Ten of Wands, always dual, on the one hand can indicate that this long journey that you have been trying to save the relationship, improve it and make it more solid, finally generates the desired results and things really are heading and improving a lot. By dint of persevering and insisting, the desired results arrive.

But also, in another context, it can mean that the burden is too much for you, and that you alone cannot get much if you do not commit and hold the other responsible in the relationship. A relationship is built in pairs, and the effort or love of one alone is often not enough to cover the part of the other member of the couple.

If you are alone , it is possible that that love that you pursue so much you can finally reach it, but in its negative version the letter could well mean that it is a wasted effort. It is advisable to rest for the moment and not keep trying until there is a more favorable outlook.

But in another aspect, the letter may indicate that you are overloaded with work, perhaps under orders from very demanding people who ask for a lot and give little.
It is also important with the appearance of this ten, that you are able to delegate, you still have a lot of capacity and drive, you are not superhuman to control it and carry everything forward by yourself.

If you are looking for work, ten announces that it will not be easy to obtain a job. It may take time and effort, but if you don’t quit, the fair prize will come.

Ten of Wands Symbolism in Raider Waite Tarot Deck

The Ten of Wands shows us in his figure a man carrying with effort a heavy load of logs or long sticks.

However, its pace is firm and it seems to be heading successfully to a certain place in the city, which is shown in the background, to place its product and obtain a profit for it.

But at the same time, in another look , he may not succeed, as he seems to be exhausted and faltering from the weight he carries and the effort, and he may not be able to get there.

Ten of Wands is a card of gloomy mood, showing that we expected too much, and now all our bright prospects vanished like smoke. Maybe we ourselves worked poorly somewhere and now we’ll disentangle. Sometimes this card also means that on the way of our development we jumped through several steps at once and now we feel like first-graders, who fell into fifth grade at once; new obscure tasks hang with a heavy millstone on the neck. So it’s quite possible that we’ll be dishonored now. It takes time to get used to it, time and patience, and then the tasks will cease to seem incomprehensible, and the gloomy mood will pass, and we will finally take our place.

Ten of Wands Upright Meaning:

The ten of Wands is one of those dual cards in meaning that generally need the support of the rest of the cards in the reading to understand which of their meanings they want to show you.

In one aspect , this letter mainly tells us about a time or a cycle that has concluded, after a singular effort of effort and struggle, and that now comes the best time to get a return on the effort invested.

In the same way that a sowing requires a certain time and a great effort to later enjoy the honeys of an abundant harvest and a profit for everything invested.

Your effort may have been in one or more aspects of your life, whether in relationships, in your partner, in your work or in your economy, or in all this together, but the fundamental thing is that this ten comes to point out that nothing The effort made has been in vain, and that you will finally begin to make a profit for it.

You have known how to carry that heavy load, accepting the challenge and knowing the effort that had to be made, however you have done it with firmness and determination, in the assurance that this time of results and happiness would finally arrive.

When an achievement is finally obtained, a commitment, a responsibility is also associated with it, and it is good that you ask yourself if you had considered that aspect before, because success has already been achieved, but in order to maintain it, you must comply with your commitment and with those responsibilities that every achievement entails.

Here, then, you may be receiving a warning that perhaps you are not entirely predisposed to dealing with them. Burdens can be overwhelming at times, and you may be tempted to drop the burden, give up on accomplishment, before being overwhelmed with responsibility.

In another aspect, it may even be the opposite : You take responsibility so seriously that you take care of absolutely everything, overloading yourself with work to the detriment of your physical and emotional well-being.

We can exemplify it as those people who start an activity or business, make it flourish, expand, employ people and more people, but have such a degree of difficulty in letting others do the tasks, so much distrust, that they end up doing everything themselves, men orchestra that need to have twenty hands and days of 50 hours to be able to fulfill everything. That is certainly not healthy.

It is important that you analyze that your load is well carried, and that now you will enjoy the achievement and the reward, because this letter deals with the importance of valuing what we have in life, the achievements that we have no matter how small, and that they should form part of the positive balance.

Obtaining things and achievements for the simple fact of accumulating, is not a satisfactory experience, you must enjoy, value and thank the entire process, from the beginning to the achievement, so ask yourself that fundamental question, if you are really enjoying seeing that you arrive to your goal or is it another heavy load that you move because there is no other alternative.

From another point of view, if you consider that there is a lot of burden and little achievement in your life , if the goal is always too far or everything is full of complications and delays, if you never get a just retribution, ask yourself in what areas of your life You may be hampered, by what kind of circumstances or people that put a continuous brake on your progress.

It is also possible that so much effort is too much for you, that you are covering too many things and holding little and reality, that things have gotten out of control and that you cannot handle it all because it exceeds you.

If this is so, your fatigue must be extreme, physical and mental, and you must analyze things very well because all this is detrimental, not only to your health, but also to your personal relationships and your way of life.

So this card opens before you two very different scenarios , which you must analyze in order to define which of the two corresponds better to you (even other letters in the reading may indicate this): On the one hand , the burden for which you have taken responsibility and committed, with courage and effort, he reaches his goal and you finally get the desired reward.

Or at the other extreme , the burden has overtaken you and you must find a better way to carry it, or give it up, if necessary.

In the upright position, the map means: the last ordeal presented by the insidious and apparently prosperous NINE Wands is passed. The idea, the thought leading to awareness, has finally formed and is now recognized as something separate from the Creator. Man separates himself from his idea, from his creation. This is the stage about which one can say: “Inspiration is not for sale, but the manuscript can be sold!” The action of the card can be correlated with the sudden disappearance of extreme pressure, with problems on the eve of their resolution, an ardent desire to find meaning, purpose, a landmark, establish oneself in life, decide, realize one’s level, position, place; the possible use of acquired power, power for personal selfish purposes and motives.

Ten of Wands Upright : Spirituality

Don’t be afraid to seek help if you need it. But you also have to learn when enough is enough, when it’s time to let go of your burdens a bit. The main theme here is to take good care of yourself, in every way, we already saw in the physical, but in what it does to your spirit it is equally important.

The emotional charges that you carry may be overwhelming you, things from the past that have been accumulating and making your life difficult. Letting go and letting go is the learning you need to do now.

Ten of Wands Reversed Meaning:

In an inverted position, the card symbolizes difficulties, intrigues, duplicity, betrayal. TEN Wands in an inverted position may indicate a meeting with the traitor of your interests, their destroyer. It can symbolize destruction in all its diversity. In metaphysical terms, a map means the inability of thoughts, ideas to express themselves.
In its extreme manifestations, this is a situation of an incomprehensible genius; it is a thought expressed untimely, either too early or too late.
A practically inverted TEN OF Wands always bears in itself certain losses: what to do – Saturn requires sacrifices.

Ten of Wands Relation with Astrology

King of Wands Zodiac sign:
The Zodiac sign associated with King of Wands is Sagittarius.
  • Saturn | The sun as a symbol of heaviness in the soul and gloomy mood or Saturn in the 11th house as an image of hopelessness.
  • Ten of Wands signifies Oppression
  • Ten of Wands stands for The third decade of Sagittarius from December 11 to 21.
  • The Tenth and First Houses and their associated planets.

The third decade of Sagittarius, governed by the planet of completeness, Saturn, lays the foundation for the transformation of energy into material results and describes its manifestations on the earth plane.

The distracted worldview and exalted spirituality of the previous decade here become an ideology and a ritual that creates the idea of ​​support. 

For representatives of this decade, more than for the previous ones, it is important to translate the idea into reality, and therefore important are the social position and authority that can protect the idea in the world. 

But … an idea at this level – can turn into a dogma.

This decade is interpreted as a stopped development: further movement is suppressed, and a person takes a conservative position until then, until he receives material satisfaction from the implementation of the intended. This is a desire to complete and eliminate everything. 

The task of this decade is to use what has been achieved for a new movement. The desired goal obscures the world from a person. therefore, the materialistic position stops the expansion of thought and authority affirms comprehended truths in life. 

A TEN of wands ends the fiery stage of the affirmation of one’s material-social “I”, and a person turns to his inner world, passing to the stage of soul development – comprehension of the sensual sphere of the elements of water.

If you climbed to the top step of the staff of the TEN, you will have a strength test. In the end, every test comes from God: is your position really in harmony with “your heaven”? Prove it!
