Completion. Success, Stability, Wealth. There is reason to celebrate. Success. Happy endings. Fruitful outcomes or financial abundance. You have made it.
The Ten cards in all four suits represent the end of a journey and here this is the accomplishment of a goal or something that you have worked for. While the Pentacles suit does represent money and this card can indicate financial success and achievement, it represents all the currencies in your life. This could indicate a feeling of accomplishment or abundance, rich in the things in life that matter to you. This includes a rich, fulfilled and happy life, able to appreciate not the possessions you have accumulated but the things and people in your life that make you happy. It is when you get to sit back and soak in the richness of your life that you will feel the full expression of the Ten of Pentacles. Life is full of riches and colour and this card indicates that you have or can fulfil your dreams. This is the culmination of a journey and a chance to reflect back on what you have achieved.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Ten of Pentacles could indicate that you have yet to complete what you have set out to achieve. It could indicate that you feel over burdened, especially with responsibility and the demands of life in general. It can also indicate failing to appreciate the abundance in your life, especially if you are viewing this through a purely financial filter.
Rainbows. Joy, Happiness, Triumph. Success. Satisfaction. Happy endings. Feeling that you have made it, you have prevailed. Your cup runneth over. Total Love and Support.
The Ten of Cups is one of the most positive cards in the Tarot deck and definitely of the Minor Arcana. This is the card of ultimate success, the culmination of a journey or the fulfilment of your heart’s desire. This is the ultimate of what you set out to achieve and the best possible outcome. If the Ten of Cups comes up in a spread where the question is whether you would ultimately succeed or not, this card indicates that you will. This is the end of a journey but as is always the case, when one journey ends another begins. Yet until the next journey or quest begins, there is a chance to sit with this feeling of accomplishment. This is the card that represents happy families and happy outcomes, as well as a feeling of abundance and of feeling complete and fulfilled. Your cup runneth over. You will have joy, rainbows, and complete love and support.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Ten of Cups, this could be a failure to complete something or a feeling of being incomplete within yourself. This may indicate that what you have set your heart on has not come to pass or it has but in a way that doesn’t leave you feeling the way you thought it would. A hollow victory. This might suggest that the journey isn’t complete or that you need to go back and repeat a few steps.
Completion. Hard Work. Finished what you set out to achieve. Intense Pressure. A task, goal, quest or journey ends. Time to reflect on the experience and the lessons. Finally taking a break.
You might be worn out and you may have given all that you have and then some but you have made it. You have crossed the finishing line. There has been much hard work and stress. If the Ten of Wands appears in a spread it indicates that you will succeed, you will cross the finishing line or accomplish what you have set out to accomplish, whether you are there yet or not. It could also indicate that you have completed that quest, project and journey and you are justifiably exhausted, with nothing left to give. This time you can rest on your laurels. There will be other quests, other ventures and other journeys but for now, you are spent. You might be wary, with nothing left to give but you can feel satisfaction in what you have accomplished, what you have learnt and who you have become along the way. What you need now is time to let this assimilate.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Ten of Wands, could mean that you fail to finish what you started or that you still have a few more rounds of the battle to go. This is not the time to give up, because even in reverse or in a challenging context this suggests that victory is possible. It might mean that you need to reach out for help. Don’t be afraid to be carried over the finishing line.
The End. Ruin. Crisis. Culmination and Conclusion. Something has finished playing out. Whether the outcome is what you wanted or feared, everything is known. Painful Endings. Rock Bottom. Betrayal, Loss.
The Ten of Swords can be a challenging card and often indicates the end of the road. You have given all that you have to give and this time there is nothing left to give. The ending is not happy. You have hit rock bottom. Think of a marathon runner collapsing on the grass after crossing the finishing line, completely spent with nothing left in the tank. Whatever marathon you have been running, unlike the Nine of Swords, you were able to dig deep and find the inner strength for one last push, now there is nothing in reserve. This can mean the end of a difficult situation, you may have lost a job, or a relationship may have ended. Whatever the outcome, whether you succeeded or failed, you’ve given your all. Sometimes there has to be a death or an end before we have new beginnings. This is not just the dark before the dawn, but also the transition from one to the other.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Ten of Swords makes this a positive card. Where upright, the focus is more on what is ending, reversed the focus is on the rebirth on the other side. This represents that there is reason for hope in the future and what it holds and that the darkest hours are behind you. Upright the Ten of Swords represents endings and reversed the opposite meaning is therefore beginnings.
