My Thoughts- Okay, we are at the end of the wands (excluding the court cards, which will have their own section) I have to say that I’m excited to move on to the next one. OKay, on to the card. This man has gathered up all of the wands/sticks. That can’t be easy to carry. Trust me, I’ve tried, there are easier ways, but that is not one of them. Why not find an easier way to do it?
The book- Burdens come in many forms: responsibilities, the expectations of others, necessities. In and of itself, this card doesn’t tell us whether we should lay down the burden, find a better way to carry it, or just keep carrying it. It simply shows that it exists.
The Universal Waite card- shows a figure carrying a great unwieldy load while walking toward a goal. This load makes the journey harder but not impossible. The implication here is that the goals of getting to the house and carrying the wands can both be achieved. One can hardly resist asking, though, might there not be a better way to carry the wands?
Core Meaning- Carrying a large burden or many burdens.
That is just like me, trying to solve everyone’s problem, but my own. I never have any clue about how to solve mine. *sigh*
