Your Chosen Card – Ten of Wands Reversed Mage Deck

Reversed Cards: The Three of Pentacles is influenced heavily by the planet Mars, which gives this card the drive and determination it needs to see things through to their natural conclusions in the upright position. But when Mars is retrograde, all that fire, force, and sheer will tend to be lacking or difficult to conjure, hence why the Three of Pentacles reversed is often referred to as the lazy card. To be fair, this isnt deliberate laziness on your end. There are circumstances that have bought your forward motion to a standstill or caused you to lose interest in what you were pursuing. Most likely you are just exhausted. Mars has the capacity to run us ragged. Take this downtime as a sign to slow down, to rest and focus on your health.

Reversed Cards: This card is shown with more than one person mainly to emphasize the coming-together component of this card. Collaboration, however, is not always physical. In the material world, we are always collaborating with vibrational energy to manifest. If we have an idea, we have to set an intention. Once we set the intention, we establish what part we will play. That part is normally our gift. The next step is to let vibrational energy fill the gap between the idea, our gift, and the end result. This is a fabulous way of thinking about the mirror aspect of this card. Instead of looking outward, we are indeed looking inward. Turn the gaze to the self and trust your inner gift, resolve, and faith to bring about what you wish to see in the physical world.
