Your Chosen Card – Ten of Wands Reversed Thoth 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. Its time that they stepped up to the plate and pulled their fair load.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ruled by the Sun, Leo comes fifth in the zodiac. Leo the Lion, a consolidating fixed sign, is associated with Strength, trump VIII. (Note that in older decks Strength is trump XI, but the Golden Dawn changed the numbering to make the tarot cards match the order of the astrological signs.) The King of Wands falls largely under Leo, a sign whose natives are characterized by these traits:
Complete Book of Tarot: Card 8, the experience of those surrounding the querent, was the Ten of Wands showing a man walking along with a burden of ten wands. Perhaps those around him were feeling a bit overwhelmed.
Complete Book of Tarot: Fact(s) 10: Every reader develops his or her own method of interpreting the cards on the basis of experience and intuition. The Golden Dawn routinely abandoned a divination if the querents significator failed to appear in a spread in a way that clearly addressed the clients concerns. Its hard to be objective when reading for yourself or for people you care about. Remember that the doctor who treats himself has a fool for a patient. When in doubt, it is wise to get a second opinion from an experienced tarot reader. As you become more skilled, your readings will become valuable resources others are willing to pay for, just as they would compensate any valued consultant.
