31-Ten of Wands – Reversed Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Ten of Wands Reversed Golden Deck

When reversed, the Ten of Wands implies an inability to delegate and an undue sense of responsibility for all aspects of a project. Others may be taking advantage of your willingness to do everything yourself. It’s time that they stepped up to the plate and pulled their fair load. If you don’t trust your colleagues to participate fairly, perhaps you should not be working with them. Consider the proverb, ‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and Jill a dull girl.’

Keywords Reversed: An oppressive burden, lies, deceit, obstacles, difficulties, feeling overwhelmed, injustice, falsehood, inability to delegate, workaholism, over-commitment, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Timing: 20 Sagittarius–30 Sagittarius. Tropical, 13 December–23 December. Sidereal, 4 January–13 January.
Astrology: The stern taskmaster Saturn in the third decan of fiery Sagittarius, realm of the Queen of Disks (Water of Earth) and Temperance (Sagittarius). Saturn is linked to the World.
Number Symbolism: 10 – one too many, the fullness of completion, readiness to begin a new cycle.

Mathers: Confidence, security, honor, good faith; (R) treachery, subterfuge, duplicity, bar.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: The earliest Italian tarot decks varied in the number and arrangement of cards. The so-called Visconti-Sforza decks contained images of members of the wealthy Milanese Visconti and Sforza families dressed in their finest attire. The cards themselves are beautiful works of art; more than a dozen such decks can be found in various museums, libraries, and private collections around the world. These card decks may have been used to play the trick-taking game of trionfi (trumps).

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: Myth(s) 9: One must follow certain rules and rituals regarding the acquisition, handling, and storage of the cards. Various myths fall under this heading, including admonitions such as:

Complete Book of Tarot: During tarot’s fortune-telling days, clients used to ask yes-no questions (Will I pass the exam?), seek to have the cards make decisions for them (Should I take the job with Edsel?), inquire about the exact timing of events (When will I get married?), spy on other people (Is my girlfriend/boyfriend cheating on me?), find out specifically what the future has in store (What will be the name of my future spouse?), or ask for medical, legal, or investment advice (Is stock in Apple Computer worth buying?). Nowadays such questions are better asked of a dedicated fortune-telling deck such as the Petit Lenormand.
