Ten of Wands as an Obstacle

When Ten of Wands appears in a negative, weakness, or obstacle Tarot spread position, it symbolizes being weighed down with responsibilities, and not having the time to take care of yourself. Are there people/things in your life which are ‘poisoning’ the energy you have to focus on your own goals? Don’t focus too much on the things that others want you to do for them. It is a waste of energy if you try to take care of everyone. You will only be drained. You must prioritize and focus on what is most important to you. Ten of Wands often appears when you are being asked to sacrifice yourself or others in order to serve a cause or a person. Are you willing to do so, or are you being pushed too far? This card may represent being so involved in helping others that you have no time for self care. You may be so busy taking care of everyone else that you don’t have time to take care of yourself.

When it comes to challenges, Ten of Wands can represent a heavy burden to carry, both physically, emotionally, and mentally. The appearance of this card is one of many examples of the burden that life often delivers, particularly when times get tough. At times, this feeling of burden can become so overwhelming that the bearer even asks others for assistance.

There are two main interpretations of Ten of Wands. The first is that you wish to lessen your personal responsibility for the outcome of your situation. You feel that you are being overwhelmed by life’s events and ask others for help: “Can you please do this for me?” Or you could be seeking assistance in lightening the burden of responsibility that you feel you have to bear.

Another interpretation is that you feel as though you are being overly responsible. You might be a parent, a partner or friend, and you feel that you are supposed to take on more responsibility. You take on too much and find yourself failing at even the most simple of tasks.

When Ten of Wands card appears in a negative position that is about weakness, or obstacle in a Tarot reading, the message the card sends is to overcome the issue and deal with it. This card tells you that you need to be strong enough to handle the situation even if it is challenging. Like the Ten of Wands, the burden is also on you to carry out the responsibilities even if it feels difficult. There will be difficulties along the way, but these difficulties are not about you but about the obstacles you have to overcome. You have to stand up independently and hold your head up high and say that you are strong and ready to face any problem or barrier.

Most of the time, we go through life just surviving without knowing what we should actually be doing. The Ten of Wands indicates that you are feeling very burdened with heavy responsibilities that are more than just your usual responsibilities. Your family also has a special place in your heart. You have to juggle between your loved ones, your family, and your work.

Ten of Wands Card as a Future Outcome

Ten of Wands card in a future outcome Tarot spread position tells you that you are carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Most of us carry this baggage for our entire lives. As a result, we feel the weight of all our emotions, thoughts, and memories as we go about every day life. Now is the time to let them go. Ten of Wands in a future position signify heavy emotional burdens that you will not be able to carry much longer. You must make some time to release yourself of these emotional burdens now. In the cards that I have examined, the wands are not crossed or tied together. Instead, each wand in this card is standing upright on its own. Ten of wands indicates that you are carrying too much responsibility because you are being asked to do so. Your friends and family are depending on you to get the job done. It is easy for you to complete others’ jobs, but you’re also doing something that you don’t want to do.

When Ten of Wands appear in a future outcome position, the meaning conveys a strong message of struggles that are yet to come. The tarot does not send any warnings, and we all take it or leave it. The Ten of Wands suggest that you have been putting in the extra work to provide for your future. You may have started a small business or invested in property to support your family. Now that you have reached a point of comfort, you are being asked to take a step back because you have a feeling that this is only the beginning, and that even if you are relieved for now and enjoy your comfort, you will soon have to go back to work. This feeling is a natural part of life, and your efforts are starting to pay off. Although you may be enjoying your life, it is still not enough. If you have a family, a steady job and a comfortable house, what did you do to create this comfortable life? If you do not have these things, do you really have comfort?

When in a Tarot reading Ten of Wands card appears in a future outcome position, you will have many responsibilities and tasks to carry out. You will be busy. The work that you do now will have a lasting impact on your future. There is a learning point to be taken from the Ten of Wands card. It is a reminder not to let the weight of responsibilities overwhelm you as you go through life. Let your family and friends help you carry out your tasks; you are not alone. However, if you feel overwhelmed, there is a method that can be followed to ease the burden temporarily. The card foretells that you are going to carry the weight of all responsibility on your own. You are being asked to shoulder this weight and allow yourself a little relief.
