The 10 of Wands is a culmination of energy. The melody of our days is coming to a crescendo and we feel the total ripening of something that occupied our energies. Sometimes this is the Burnout Card, when we realize we’ve taken on more than we can bear and need to lay down the burdens we carry. Always, 10s represent a transition – a time to reflect on and integrate what we’ve learned so that it can then become the compost for wisdom to emerge.
There’s a melancholy to this card, as it may indicate that the time has come to let go of something you’ve held dear. Just as Summer cedes to Autumn, we surrender to the waning Sun and begin the journey inward to recalibrate our energies and restore our sense of purpose.
I’d love to hear if any of these 10 of Wands themes are resonating with you right now!
Sending you tender-heart hugs,
