What Do the Wand Cards Mean?

The Ten of Wands reminds us not to take on more than we can handle.

Ten of Wands

Think of the Ten of Wands as a cautionary card - it's a warning that you shouldn't try to take on more than you're capable of handling. Shouldering burdens - especially those of other people - can lead to physical and emotional exhaustion. Don't bite off more than you can chew, or you're going to find yourself run down and drained.

Ten of Wands, Reversed

The reversed Ten of Wands lets us know that all the strains and burdens of the past are just that - the past. Give yourself a break now that it's over, and allow others to do the same if they need to.
