Ten of Wands's Meaning

If the X of Wands appears in your spread, you are likely working too hard, or taking on more burdens than you should. It can indicate both excessive workloads in pursuit of your goals, or as a result of attaining them.


The strength that you've developed over years of struggle will lead you to the solution of your current problem. The negativity you have recently let go of will allow you to form a new philosophy.


Bear down and see the challenge through to the end. If you have been disconnected from someone close to you, expect an opportunity to reconnect.


By focusing your energy in one direction and consolidating your efforts, success will be easier to achieve. You will have the chance to achieve your desires, but you must first reach your lofty goals.
