Ten of Wands indicates someone is struggling with a crushing weight.
In a tarot reading, it is about the inquirer (querent), someone close to the inquirer, or a hidden aspect within the inquirer that needs to be acknowledged for the inquirer to reach their highest consciousness. The happiness the inquirer is seeking can be found by answering a question:
Why is it important to do it alone (or not)?
It is import to consider that this is a Minor Arcana card (pip card), which carries a message that signifies an event that impacts your immediate past and future. When it appears the universe wants you to focus on actions related to taking on too much.
Don’t let the set structure of the Tarot distract you from its primary use as an intuitive divination tool. Use the keywords, images, and symbols of the card to tap into your intuition and deeper inner knowing.
