Ten of Wands
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. The trick is, can the subject (the supplicant) actually carry the burden, making progress beyond the Nine of Wands (seeing the burden with some small apprehension), to arrive at a balanced conclusion, as does the Page of Wands? Balance is everything and everlasting – a state or place where acceptance is chosen in disregard of panic. "Balance walks the wire, whilst panic is in partnership with the perilous."
The key meanings of the Ten of Wands:
- Intense pressure
- A person overburdened by his enterprise, is nevertheless active and on the move, but not seeing past his wands (or obligations).
- A city can be observed in the background. He may be headed there, perhaps with the goal of ridding himself of this load.
