Ten of Wands

I know this card well and it always makes me sigh… it’s when all that wonderful wands energy becomes a burden to us and instead of lifting us up, we’re the ones pushing it up hill. We feel like Sisyphus, endlessly pushing the boulder up the hill only to watch it roll down again.

I warn people when they get this card that they have to take some proactive action, because waiting for it to pass is bad for wands energy, the flame starts to flicker and die… Wands need fiery passion to keep thriving and this image shows that the seed has no light to grow...

I like this card because it hints that the burdens are being hoarded. Sometimes we collect emotional injuries, like they are coins we can later cash in, giving ourselves permission to be resentful or bitter. The ten of wands is a hard card, but this attitude makes it even harder to change the situation.
