Vision Quest - Ten of Air

Descrition: There are five vultures on a giant rock formation and five more vultures seen flying away. There are mountains in the distance.

Significant Details: To some native peoples the vulture is an omen of death, danger or strife. In native legends the vulture “usually plays the role of an aggressive troublemaker who lies, cheats, hoards resources that should belong to everyone, or uses his large size to bully other birds.” The mountains are the gateways to the spirit realm.

My Interpretation: You have a lot of negative thoughts and doubts, possibly even fears about a situation. You are unwilling to let go of negative/destructive notions.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: The rock formation on which the vultures sit is brown, it is signifying our strong mental/spiritual base, and the blue of the mountains is letting us know that we have a secure knowledge of our spiritual selves.

I think that in this card we are the meat laid upon the rocks, and the vultures each represent a negative thought. As five of these vultures are flying away, they represent that we have let these negative thoughts go, but five still remain. In this sense the negative thoughts are eating away at us.

When compared to the 9 (Hurt), the 10 (Negative Thinking) is a much more hurtful card in the sense that we "allow" our negative thoughts to eat away at us, instead of only feeling hurt by our own actions.
