DotD: 10 of Wands and the Hawk

Wow, it's been over a year since I played Day of the Druids (DotD) here at Tarot Notes! Time sure flies!

Day of the Druids involves asking the cards what I need to be aware of today using The DruidCraft Tarot and the Druid Animal Oracle.

The positional definitions are:

(1) Not only...
(2) But also...

Here we go!

(1) Not only...TEN OF WANDS (DruidCraft)
Key Words: Demands, Burdens, Overwork
Numerology: Ten = Culmination, Beginning
Element: Fire (Intuition; Spirit)

(2) But also... HAWK, reversed (Druid Animal Oracle)
Key Words: Nobility, Recollection, Cleansing
Element: Air (Intellectual, Mental Issues)

Today, I need to be aware of how I am handling responsibilities and obligations in my life. Have I taken on so many responsibilities that they are weighing me down? With my Sagittarius sun (Fire), I do have a tendency to enthusiastically and eagerly agree to new projects, only to suffer from boredom or burnout down the road.

In addition, my attention is called to the energy of the Hawk. Drawn reversed, this card can suggest over-attentiveness to detail or a narrow mental focus that will not serve me well today.

Taken as a pair, I see in these two cards the need to be aware of any situation in which I find myself trying to micro-manage a project or projects, burdening myself with a million details when I need to see the bigger picture. Maybe I need to delegate some details to others. The number Ten tells me that this could be a turning point in my life -- the end of one stage or phase and the beginning of a new stage or phase.

(Please Note: I am aware that the DruidCraft deck is not strictly a "Druid" deck. The word "Craft" in the title alerts us to the fact that this deck incorporates both Wicca and Druidry.)

  1. Time to re-evaluate and lighten the burden I think ^_^

    1. Hi Helen! Well, it's true that I have been handling a lot of details related to my mother's relocation, and today we reached a point where I should be able to step back and let things move forward without heavy participation on my part. So perhaps these cards are simply confirming that this is the time for that.

  2. Ah yes, I think you've hit the nail on the head there. ^_^

  3. I don't think I've seen one of you Day of the Druids draws before - works beautifully! Hope you are managing to let go a little, so you have more mental space for things you enjoy :)
