Ten of Cups Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, the Ten of Cups may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers do like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic readers conduct their readings because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of number “Ten” and the qualities of the “Cups Suit,” the Ten of Cups card would represent:
|Joyful events||Feelings of happiness|
|Counting your blessings||Being at peace, or calling a truce|
|Feeling delightful, serenity||Enjoying family time|
|Celebration in the family, children or marriage||Quality time with the family|
In a reverse position, the Ten of Cups would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Dysfunctional family or relationship||Unhappy times|
|Lack of partnership or teamwork||Refusing to commit or have children|
|Losing your home, foster families||Conflict in your relationship|
|Family secrets that erupt the peace||Separation, neglect, and abuse|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Ten of Cups would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to take some time off to enjoy quality time with your family.
You may be focusing too much on work or other projects outside your family that you do not make enough time to see them or have a conversation with them. If they are complaining about how they do not spend quality time with you, take it as a sign, you need to put off some work or take a vacation with just them. You have been blessed with a family that loves you and supports you, but they also need to feel your love and support. Also, if you are with someone you want to commit with, try to take things slower as they may be scared, especially if they feel the relationship has moved too fast.
