Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:
Ten of Wands
This ten-card is representative of the completion of a cycle. The querent has almost reached the summit after a steep climb, and the reaping of rewards is clear and near in sight. Having almost fulfilled a creative venture or personal journey, the querent must soon bear the responsibly of this fulfillment. It’s an odd quirk of human nature that sometimes what we’ve labored tirelessly to achieve can be the same thing that oppresses us… pressure must be removed from the self, by the self, so that fulfilled endeavors can keep evolving. Let the transformative power of detachment help release the burden of accomplishment. Take a moment to breathe and reassess from this high vantage point.
upright: oppression by accomplishment; peak of opportunity
right: nearing accomplishment; acknowledgment of responsibility
left: a rush; a pressure
reversed: necessary detachment; longer-than-expected journey
