10 Of Wands

In this Minor Tarot card, we can see a young man carrying ten wands. They are heavy as he is almost bending over. These wands represent responsibilities. Due to the weight of these responsibilities, the young man can’t see past them. His gaze is fixed on the ground, indicating he is task-oriented. He is walking towards a building that to him, is a sign of security and stability. There is also the opposite card i.e. the 10 Of Wands Reversed or Ten Of Wands Reversed which is also explained below for the benefit of our readers.

You may also be the sort of person who never says no which may lead to others taking advantage of your generosity.

When the Ten of Wands shows up in a career or business reading, it indicates that you are stressed. You may have taken on too many projects in the office, and this may be draining you.

If you are looking for love, this card indicates that you may be too overwhelmed with work and other responsibilities such that you are letting dating take a back seat. Make time for love if you want to find someone special.

The Ten of Wands in a money and investment reading is a sign of money struggles, which may be causing you to be stressed. You may also be struggling with debts, and your investments may not be paying off. Its time you sat down and figured out how to get yourself out of this mess. You can seek the help of a financial advisor.

Healthwise, the Ten of Wands shows that stress due to too many responsibilities may be negatively affecting your health. Take care of yourself first before you take on numerous responsibilities.
