The Key Phrase for the Ten of Scepters is AN INVENTION OR DISCOVERY.  Clearly, this card is an expression of Uranus’ originality and individuality combined with the passion of the fire signs.  Other interpretations for the Ten of Scepters in a spread could be:


New Business methods


A change in status


Alternation of working conditions


Variety of personal activities


Take initiative to maintain balance


Of course, many other interpretations are possible based upon the influences of Uranus and the element of fire.


Please note that often in Tarot, it is important when interpreting the cards to present with positive encouragement.  Take, for example, the last interpretation listed above:  Take initiation to maintain balance.  This interpretation implies that the changes ahead may not be for the best, but these are words you can use to encourage your querent to stay poised during what may be a difficult time.  As readers of Tarot, we are always striving to put forth the most positive and encouraging message without jeopardizing the implications of the card.


One of the books that I have referenced throughout this blog is Doris Doane’s Blending Astrology, Numerolgy & the Tarot.  This handy little book is a must-have for readers of The Brotherhood of Light Egyptian Tarot.  Look for it at the bookstore at
