A Personal Journey Through the Tarot: 10 of Wands


Humans tend to be communal creatures. We are healthier when we have strong connections to social groups. We work well in tribes. To find your place in a tribe means taking on responsibilities within that group. The more responsibilities the greater the connection. The more likely the group will stand up for you when you need help. But what happens when the responsibility becomes a burden? 

You have taken on too much. Perhaps it was because you thought no one else would step up. Perhaps it was because you felt no one else was able to. Perhaps you felt obligated. Now the social connection has become unhealthy for you and something must change. It is time to let the responsibility go. You may be surprised how others will come in and pick it up. Truly, it was not really all up to you. 

Today I draw the the 10 of Wands and reflect upon my obligations and responsibilities. Is it time for me to step up to bat and help the team or have I done my part and is it time to pass the baton?
