The Ten of Wands suggests a way to live a happier life

May 4, 2017

Ten of Wands -- Tarot of the MastersThere are many ways to use Tarot cards beyond the well-known process of doing a traditional reading. Here’s a way to create a happier life today using a bit of advice from the Ten of Wands.

This card typically suggests the burdens we carry, and that includes all the things that society and other people tell us we should be or do. So, for example, I created this pithy meaning for the Ten of Wands:

Aren’t you tired of being “should upon?”

Similarly, in my book, The Soul’s Journey, I wrote the following:

Maybe we have allowed ourselves to be burdened by things that other people feel we should do.  When we realize that we have let ourselves be “should upon,” it is time to reexamine what we want to do in life.

So here is a suggestion from the Nine of Wands about what you can do today to make your life a bit happier:

Simply put: Stop being ‘should upon.’ To help you do this, you can make a list of things that you don’t really want to do (or be), but you do them anyway out of a sense that you “should” do them based on the expectations of others.  Then reevaluate these things to see which burdens you might be able to shed. This does not mean that you should neglect or walk away from your true responsibilities, however. It just advises you to reevaluate what is truly important in your life and which responsibilities you really do need to shoulder.

Many of these suggestions from the cards about how to live a happier, more fulfilled life were inspired by my pithy Tarot meanings and others by material in my book, The Soul’s Journey. So if you like them, you might also like my books, Pithy Tarot and The Soul’s Journey. Also, for more Tarot messages, LIKE my Tarot Facebook page.
