Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Today's card is the Ten of Wands (reversed) from the Mystic Faerie Tarot deck. Tens have to do with finishing a cycle, endings and beginnings, completions and sometimes family matters. Wands indicate energy, action, projects, ideas, opportunities and responsibilities.
The Ten of Wands, in its upright position, shows an image of being weighted down by all ten wands. There is a sense of feeling overwhelmed or burdened with projects and activities. Have you taken on too much?
Today the Ten of Wands is reversed, which means that if you have been feeling stressed or pressured with your responsibilities or deadlines, you will find some relief...as though your load is getting lighter for some reason. Either you have delegated or deleted some of the things that were on your plate, OR your perspective has changed, possibly by changing your thoughts and beliefs about the situation and the role you play.
The reversed Ten of Wands may also indicate that you have been preparing for some changes in your life, possibly subconsciously, and are getting ready to more fully commit to your new direction.
This card indicates that you are getting rid of the things that have been weighing you down and are starting to feel some relief...as though you've been holding your breath and have just opened your mouth to allow the cool air to rush into your oxygen-starved lungs.
Feel the relief of these decisions in your life and/or grateful for situations changing to help relieve some of the pressure. Be grateful for this reprieve because the Ten also symbolizes the end of a cycle, which means it's time to start again with the Ace of Wands (start of a new venture).
The Ten of Wands (reversed) is the ideal energy in which to start off this New Year. Release the burdens of last year and begin with a clean slate. You are the artist. You select the medium and the colors, textures, sizes and shapes.
This is your new masterpiece. Happy New Year!
