31-Ten of Wands – Upright Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Ten of Wands Upright Golden Deck

When upright, the Ten of Wands suggests that you have worked hard and have achieved a great deal, but now your success is weighing you down. Your sense of duty and your willingness to shoulder obligations have been assets along the way, but the time has come to delegate and share the load. Make sure that the burden you carry is not the result of deceit or falsehood. Your commitment to a job well done is admirable, but there are others who are now willing to share the responsibility for the future outcome. You need to lighten up; otherwise your workaholism will take a toll in other areas of your life.

Keywords Upright: Willingness to take on a heavy load, carrying the weight of success, a sense of responsibility, ability to delegate, sharing the workload with others, accepting support.

Complete Book of Tarot: In Llewellyn’s Classic Tarot, a hand emerges from a cloud on the left-hand side of the card; the hand holds a sword upright against the light blue sky. The palm of the hand faces the viewer. Peaked mountains in the background symbolize important goals and ideas that need to be honored. The blade of the sword thrusts upright through a four-pointed golden crown, from which dangle olive and laurel branches. Each point of the golden crown is inlaid with a distinct gem representing one of the four elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The olive branch is a symbol of peace; the laurel, a symbol of triumph and recognition.

Portable Magic: At the same time, visualize yourself on the astral level pointing in turn with your right hand at the glowing rectangles of light that float above each zodiacal trump while slowly turning clockwise on your own axis. As you utter each name, mentally project the symbol of its sign into the rectangle in glowing golden light. Take the time to see each symbol clearly before moving on to the next trump.

Portable Magic: At the same time, she releases the accumulated energy of desire and intention from her heart centre, where it is focused. She uses her right hand to draw it from the centre of her chest and direct it in the form of a lance of light through the centre of the triangle of golden fire that floats upright upon the air above the three elemental trumps. Bright white radiance fills the astral triangle, and the whirling air in the circle falls still.
