There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Ten of Pentacles would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to reflect on how your established rules are working for you.
You may be someone who loves to set standards, and you don’t like working without order. However, times evolve, traditions slowly accept in new approaches, and so should you think about adjusting your rules and order to the changes happening outside of you. If you are one to strictly follow familiar traditions, like always celebrating a religious feast at home, maybe you should consider celebrating at a restaurant with all your loved ones this year or changing the place where you all gather together. Perhaps you are the head of the family, and your son or daughter announces they want to marry someone of the same gender. Take your time to process the changes.

Ten of Pentacles – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Ten of Pentacles, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest. Still, it will take time, as an Earth element indicates growth, but a steady and long one.
How soon is that, it would be kind of complicated because it could mean Autumn time, or that of a Zodiac Sign season Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn.
It would also be counted in months, or around the 10h, 19th, 28th, of a month.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming slowly, but surely, from there, you would figure out the time.
With the Pentacles Suit, the best way to go around figuring out the time would always be to think 2-6 months later, and it would go something like this: If it is already Autumn, your best bet would be around Capricorn or Taurus season, which is six months away, or around six months away. Either way is coming, but it needs time to grow into what you desire.
