Ten of Cups

Upright/Well Dignified: …and the man and his wife and their family all lived happily ever after…

This is what the Ten of Cups talks about. The opportunity to live the happy end of the Disney fairy tale. Once that period of the Nine of Cups has passed and the waiting is over, the Ten comes into view with the things you’ve been wanting from the start. Very similar to the Ten of Pentacles, the Ten of Cups talks about the end of a cycle, where there is a new cycle beginning with the previous cycle ending on a high note.

The Ten of Cups is about the relationships formed starting to bear fruit and all of the good things that will be flowing from them. Should this card make an appearance in a reading about job prospects, you can almost put money on being part of a good work environment in the near future. In many respects, the Ten of Cups is about community and the positive effects of the relationships that come from being an active part of yours.

Here, in the Ten of Cups, is where your emotional needs are met and you finally find yourself sated. Enjoy it. It’s most likely been earned and you’re in a secure enough place that it can be savoured. It’s also a card that allows good things to flow from you and on to other people, so feel free to spread the good luck around.  It’s highly unlikely that it will take anything away from you.

Reversed/Ill Dignified: The Ten of Cups reversed is often asking you one simple question. Why are you still depressed about where you are in life? In many places, the question of “what else do you need?” should eventually come. Often, the answer is nothing. It’s just the desires that are not being met. Here though, there is still a bit of good news. You have all of your needs met and you are in a prime place to start looking at what it is that you WANT. With a secure base to work from, you can figure out what it is that you want and work in those directions.

Sometimes though, having everything that you need is wasted on some people. You might need to ask yourself as to whether or not you’re one of them. Self-sabotage can be a common theme in a person’s life, especially if things are good enough that they can indulge it. With a reversed Ten of Cups, there is a very real chance that you may end up losing what you’ve spent so  much time attaining simply by poisoning it with negativity. If things are going to go wrong, they will go wrong, but looking for things to go wrong when there’s no chance for it to happen is just wasting time that could be put to much better use.

Occasionally there is a point where you’re deluding yourself and you need to look at how things really are in your life. The answer is probably not going to be nearly as good as you’re pretending it is and you’ve reached a point where this is becoming harmful. It’s time to stop pretending that things are fine when they’re not and talk to someone that can help with the situation. Things aren’t at their worst, but are on the way downhill and it’s time to address them before they become overwhelming.
