Self-Care with Ten of Wands

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Ten of Wands.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-w10-01If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean that it’s time to examine and assess the distribution of responsibilities.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to first acknowledge that everyone feels just as busy as you, then honestly determine whether you are carrying your fair share of the responsibilities.

We’re not talking about work versus school versus home here. Look at the responsibilities of the home only within the context of the home. Same with each other area of life. Again, the reason for this is everyone else feels just as busy.

It’s human nature to perceive ourselves as the busiest of all, regardless of whatever is going on.

If you are truly swamped, ask for help. Keep in mind that there is a difference between asking for help and foisting duties upon others.
