Today is a good day to consider other points of view and their implications.
The tarot card of the day is the reversed Ten of Wands.
You may feel as if you are falling behind in life, despite your desire to grow, and The Ten of Wands is pushing you today to gain perspective on the matter.
The Ten of Wands shows a burdened man strolling up a hill, weighed down by an excessive number of wands. His head is lowered, and he does not see the hill's top or destination.
The Ten of Wands represents a disproportionate number of burdens that may impair your progress in life. The responsibilities can be anything from attorney fees to taking extra classes. Juggling too many things at once leads only to stress.
The reversed Ten of Wands indicates you do not see things clearly. This can make it challenging to find solutions or move forward in life. You may need to take a step back and reassess your situation before making any progress.
If you can find a way to see the positive in your current situation, it will help you move forward.
The Absence of Objectivity
The ability to be objective does not come as naturally to some of us unless we are lawyers. When the Ten of Wands is reversed, it suggests that you are not looking at your situation objectively. You find it difficult to move forward or take action. You may need to get outside help to see things more clearly.
Why is objectivity necessary in life? First, it allows us to see things as they are, without our biases or emotions clouding our judgment. Be the jury, instead of the lawyer. Especially when dealing with a situation close to our hearts, objectivity is crucial for making the best decisions.
If you feel burdened by your current situation, consider seeking a therapist or counselor who can help you see things in a new light. You might also take some time to talk to your best friend, siblings, parents, or partner to ask for advice.
It is important to remember that you are the only one who can ultimately make decisions about your life, so be sure to listen to your heart and intuition as well. You are the lawyer, judge, and jury. The Ten of Wands reversed is a reminder that you have the strength to overcome any obstacle, but you must be willing to let go of your burdens first.
Do an Act of Kindness for Yourself
You must carry a heavy burden to get the Ten of Wands. A rest is definitely in order, so today, do yourself a favor and put some me-time on your calendar. This can be anything from along bath to taking a nature walk. Your hobbies can also provide a much-needed distraction from your troubles.
Once your mind is no longer bogged down with worries, you may find it easier to see things more clearly. This newfound clarity can help you finally take concrete steps forward in your life.
Even though it may be challenging to envision a way out at the moment, The Ten of Wands reversed is a reminder that there is indeed a way out. So, be patient, and trust that the solutions will come in time.
Get in Touch With Your Inner Child
Whatever your profession is – painter, attorney, or stay-at-home mom – your work life can be all-consuming. It's easy to forget what it was like to just have fun and play. Having the Ten of Wands in this position is a reminder to return to the innocence of your younger self, along with all the hope it represented.
Rediscovering your inner child can be as simple as playing with a pet or taking fun classes online. By rediscovering your inner child's idealistic perspective, you can breathe new life into your everyday routine and find renewed meaning in the world.
Join a cooking class, subscribe to a YouTube DIY channel or go to the art museum instead of your usual hang-out spot. Learning a new skill can help you seek out a different perspective. Before you know it, your progress will start to show.
