Tarot Tuesday

The Ten of Wands

"This Dryad bears the weight of what seems a miniature world upon her back. The support and welfare of the beings who inhabit those towers are hers to nourish with the flow of life's sap through her branches and leaves. Their soul is the song that spirals up through the foliage from her heart."

The Ten of Wands represents an honorable task, even though it's overbearing for this Dryad. Although it may seem like an overly stressful situation to bear, her commitment to it is a sign of hard work and virtue.

This card can also mean being burdened or oppressed by outside sources. Overworked, over tired, over stimulated. Having more on your plate  than you can handle. This is  a card of being overwhelmed, life and everything in it  adds weight. 

Sometimes the 10 of Wands indicates that you have been too successful and would be well-served by scaling back. You are may be tired or you've been working very hard, either personally or professionally and could use a break.  This could be an excellent time to give yourself one.

Spiritually speaking, don't be afraid to reach out for assistance if you need it. But you also have to learn when enough is enough, and when it is time to get out from under your burdens. The major theme here is to take good care of yourself, in every way, as to do so is especially critical now.

I'd like to give a shout out to Ft. Wainwright, Alaska....Hello everyone!

Such a beautiful design. It reminded me a lot of pictures my Dad used to draw when I was little. Thank you for sharing.
