Tarot 24. 10 of Fire: “ISOLATION”

“I had a dream that the whole World was staring at me
I woke up and wasn't no one there” Wiz Khalifa from the song “Fly solo”

A man sits isolated in a room while a fire burns out of control all around him, he is oblivious to the danger

INTERPRETATION: This tarot normally indicates burdens or responsibilities that zap all your energy, this causes a mind focused on worry and a life doing what you must rather than what you want.  If this has been going on for a while, you may not even realise what you do want anymore because your life has been on a rotation of work, responsibility and worry that allows little else into your life.

The tens in all the suits bring the challenge of their individual elements.  In some cases it can give just a little too much of the energies they represent:

·                                 In 10 of earth “Bounty you will be incredibly focused on your material world, quite possibly to the point of obsession.  You could become a collector now, believing the items you collect will be of greater value in the future.  You may find the collecting and having needs outweigh other needs just now.  Be careful not to alienate those closest to you by being single-minded in your acquisition-ing.

·                     In 10 of fire “Isolation” you will need to be alone and become something of a hermit for a brief period.  You have had far too many responsibilities and commitments for too long.  You now need to take yourself off for a while to reboot yourself.  If you do not take time for yourself you may find your health will suffer, causing you to take time off anyway.

·                     In 10 of Water "Baptism" you will have wonderful skills of visualisation.  You will be able to create pictures with your mind.  What may be much more difficult to make something of those inspirational images.  You will have to separate fantasy from reality as you may be overly confident on what you can actually achieve alone.

·                     In 10 of Air "Transcendence" there may be an important decision you have to make but it is difficult when you have too much interference.  You will have to make your decision based on yourself alone, and not allow others have an opinion.  A good way to work with this energy is through meditation, when you can make your mind blank and at peace. Only then will it be possible for you to know how you want to proceed.

The ten of fire can also indicate that you are so busy worrying about your daily grind that you are unable to notice true dangers around you or even opportunities that come along. Often there is a difficult emotion permeating your inner world, such as being ashamed or embarrassed of what you are obliged to do. 


 Because the emotions are too difficult to deal with the tendency is to go inside yourself and cut yourself off from those who can help you as you don’t want to burden them with your problems or you feel ashamed of some situation you are in and you may fear your close family and friends will find out the truth, so you isolate yourself.


While it is likely that whatever you have been troubled with is somewhat self-inflicted, it doesn’t mean you should not seek help---YOU SHOULD.  This will be very difficult to ask for aid because you will have to tell someone about your problems. 

You will need to let it all out and this can be quite painful, but realise it may be somewhat easier if you unload to someone who is a professional or not a part of your immediate circle.
If you can stop judging yourself and voice your worries you will be on the way to rebalance your life. 

Possibly you need to complete some obligation that you believe you cannot do but you must try to and try different ways of completing the process.

If you have asked a question about some project you are working on, then simply, Freeze!  Progress no further in this direction as it is not working out for you and you have to accept this once and for all. If you continue on you will experience only loss of associates, of energy, or position or of yourself.

Like all difficult tarots, this will not last forever.  In this case, you will have to rest from all you have been doing, admit there’s a problem and give yourself a break.  Soon as you do things will slowly heal and become much easier to deal with.


Certainly link and make suggestions to anyone you think would like to see these. Just please do not reprint as your own work.
