The Ten of Staves (or Wands) represents the completion of a cycle or process of some sort, having to do with spirit or passion. It may be the culmination of a project, or the end of a season of spiritual practice or development.
Notes on the Tarot Cards
Although I encourage the reader to explore the cards and come up with your own keywords, meanings and associations, here are some of my own ideas and notes.
This is the fourth Major that has turned up in a row, and the second appearance of The Chariot in eight days. It is a reminder to hang on to the reigns, and keep working to get better – a little bit better every day.
When The Wheel of Fortune turns up for me, it’s a reminder to accept the ups and downs with grace, and to do my best to look to the center, and to build the habit of looking to it, through daily spiritual practice and reflection.
“Once more, the world was spinning in greased grooves.” – John Steinbeck
I tend to think of this card as representing a private, individual quest, and the need for quiet and solitude.
