Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Ten of Cups

1d1b0e7e1b2b05b9655d78979492865b

When pulled upright this card is a continuation of the good feelings from the nine of cups. This card is all about joy, happiness, contentment, and emotional satisfaction in the people you surround yourself with. This state you’re in is so ideal that you feel that you are in paradise. All of your wishes, needs, and wants have been fulfilled. Take this time to breath and be thankful for all that you have. This card shows us true emotional fulfillment. When you learned to love yourself the nine of cups became the ten of cups. This card is often thought to be connected to the phrase “happily ever after”. This card also talks about having a harmonious family. You are living in absolute peace. If this is a love reading this card shows that this is the real deal and could very well be something long-term. This card could also be suggesting you should take a family vacation so you can really just spend quality times with your loved ones.

When pulled in reverse this card is about how the connections and harmony within your family are being broken. This idealized image of the perfect family you had is either broken or wasn’t realistic from the get go. Rather than connecting and coming together you may find that you are becoming more distant and pulling apart. The happy moments that you were hoping for don’t seem to have met your expectations. Treat each other well and love each other too. This is the best way to achieve the harmonious living that you desire. 

It would seem that the 10 of cups upright is the kind of life most of us aim to live. I thought, for those of us not quite there, a good step to getting there would be to learn to love ourselves a little more. Here is a tarot spread to help with your self love. First I would take out the 10 of cups and meditate on it while thinking about all the reasons you are worthy of your own love. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

When pulled upright this card is about self-satisfaction. It is about going through the rough patches the rest of the suit had to offer, such as, struggling to find your purpose, to find joy again, you have explored new opportunities, and left your comfort zone. Now you are celebrating this new stage in your life. This card is a super positive one to get in a reading. It is often referred to a the wish card as when you get this card it tells you that you are going to get what you desire. When you are doing a reading about work this card talks about a good chance that something really great is going to happen in your place of work. Whatever it is that you’ve really wanted to achieve at work it is now the time to really push for it. When talking about love this card is saying a romantic relationship you have will go to the next level. So maybe you have been casually dating someone for awhile. This card could be saying you are both going to be ready to commit soon. Or maybe you have been in a relationship with someone for a while now, maybe you will finally get engaged. If you are single this card is telling you that now is the time to start socializing as you may find someone perfect for you. For readings about finances it says that whatever your financial goals are, they seem to be coming to life now. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you need to really think about what you seriously want in life. You desire something more authentic. You’ve been travelling a pretty hard path and you feel like you’ve reached a point of fulfillment but you can’t shake the feeling that something is missing. To others you may come across as just smug and make it seem like you just want attention for what you have achieved. However you honestly still feel dissatisfied with yourself. You never seem to have an end to your desires. You always want more to the point that seems much like a black hole. You need to reflect on this and try and figure out where this issue stems from so you can do something about it. This card talks about how you need to stop placing all your value on all your blessings and rather start valuing the quality of your life. 

So this card talks about how now is the time you will achieve your dreams so I thought this tarot spread would be helpful. First I would take the nine of cups out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about your dreams for life. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
