The Ten of Cups tarot card

When you have received the Ten of Cups in your reading, you are about to step into a very fortunate part of your life.

This is a card that stands for family, for home and for nurturing as well as celebration. When you have received this card, you can know that everything you are wondering about or wanting is going to come into fruition for you. This means that you have nothing to worry about. Whether this is regarding love or a relationship, work and money or family, the subject of your reading will be blessed.

The image that is present on the card itself in the Rider Waite deck depicts a young couple jumping up and down and dancing with their children on a beautiful and sunny blue sky day. The rainbow signifies the passing of a storm. The worst is over, and now is the time to revel in the beauty left behind. Often times this card signifies a respectful nod to you from the Universe for making the most out of what you had to deal with. You were able to keep up with your work, and your focus, even though everything was dark and grey. You were able to keep yourself going, protecting yourself and your loved ones and ticking away at your goals. And now the clouds have parted and you are able to see the sun shining.

The whole transit that surrounds you at this time is joyful. There is a lasting happiness that is going to come from pushing through your adversities and the happiness that is coming your way is inspired from above instead from sensual pleasures previously referred to in the Nine of Cups. There is a perfection of human love and great friendship. Now is the time for you to connect to other people, to be a social butterfly and in home life to stabilize and focus on the home because the hearth is an extremely important aspect of this card.

Pay attention to your own intuition at this time, be spontaneous, listen to the beat of your heart and you will have the fulfillment that you desire and a deep connection to emotional satisfaction. At this time you will begin to feel the actualization of your personal hopes and dreams. Suddenly all of the doors are open for you; the world is full of YES. Inner peace is within your reach. There is even a possibility of travel if you play your cards right and accept some of the advantages that are being presented to you. Be open to opportunity and take advantage as often as you can to the blessings that the Universe provides. The passion that is within you is where your fortune is, therefore the more that you listen to what makes you feel a strong passion, the faster you will receive your intuitive and genius ideas that will bring you success.

You also have the ability of bringing that joy that you have pushing forward to everyone around you. Your family and the people that are close to you are important to have around. Especially with such a familial card it is very important that you are around those that nurture you and who you nurture. There is a reciprocal relationship within you and your connections that needs to be strengthened at this time because there is so much abundance in this area.

Continue to maintain your individuality even when you are around others, as this is an excellent opportunity for you to learn how to still stay you. In this you will be emotionally secure and stable, and life continues to be rich and meaningful. Now is the time to contemplate how you are living in harmony with others in your environment, and if there is anything that feels amiss, you have the spiritual backing to help you through it. Consider where you would like to find joy, and what good there is in existence already as well as what you want in the future. If you don’t have a family but would like to start one, now is the time to present to the Universe all of the ideas and goals that you have in your mind because success will follow for you.

If you are single, then you can expect for an emotional relationship and connection to blossom at record speeds at this time.

The Ten of Cups in Health  Now is the time for you to revel in the success that you have made when it comes to your health. It is not the card of hard work; it is the card of enjoying where you have gotten yourself. If at this time you do not feel especially healthy, then now is the time for you to gather your wits about you and make some true goals, but you can only do that if you have been able to gather the perspective of what you have been able to accomplish that got you here. Ponder, reflect, be grateful and contemplate goals.

The Ten of Cups in Work and Wealth  If the Ten of Cups is blessing your work and wealth reading then you have nothing to be afraid of. Investments that you have made are coming through at top speed with full financial backing behind it. If you are worried about making a choice to get a new job, then you mustn’t worry any more. Now is the time for you to get what you deserve. The cards are recognizing the hard work that you have put in to get to this point, and now all you have to do is take advantage of all of the open doors that are in your life.


Reversed Ten of Cups in a reading When the Ten of Cups is showing up reversed in your spread, you have a highly charged situation happening that is making you feel burned out. This happens when you allow yourself to turn emotionally inward instead of putting words out there where others can hear them. Internalization of problems, of frustrations can only ever make it worse. You are going to need to find a way to express yourself to those you feel have wronged you otherwise you are going to get stuck in a stagnate place. Denying who you are and your inner self is not going to get you anywhere. The rainbow of this card represents a promise for you, but you have to work on making the promise that is presented, actually happen. Be clear about your dreams if you want them to exist.
