Ten of Cups in Love
The Ten of Cups can suggest that you are coming together with another person as a family. You both might have children from previous relationships, thus the Ten of Cups can indicate adopting kids. The Ten of Cups can also suggest that you and your spouse are a perfect family and have beautiful children of your own. Family happiness is assured when you get the Ten of Cups.
Tens can indicate an excessive of each suit, not necessarily the culmination. In the Ten of Cups, we see us dreaming of the fantasy where wishful thinking and prince charming stories play a big role. Be careful not to lose yourself in over idyllic fantasies and stories. There may be a tendency to over idealize a situation before it happens.
Ten of Cups as Feelings
If you are asking how someone feels towards you, then the Ten of Cups assures you that they feel completely emotionally content. They are in love with you for sure. They feel happy, secure and emotionally fulfilled.
Ten of Cups as Advice
The Ten of Cups as advice is asking you to wrap up your emotions. Tens are 1’s and 0’s, so a new rebirth is ahead. Take a chance on your heart too. You could be receiving an unexpected letter or phone call from someone far away. Connect with distant relatives or friends.
Ten of Cups as an Obstacle
For such a happy card, how can it look like an obstacle? The beauty of tarot is that each card has a negative and a positive aspect. We learned this back in the High Priestess, who showed us that everything in life is a polarity of opposing opposites that are actually one aspect of the same force.
When the Ten of Cups comes up in the obstacles or crossing position of your reading, it can indicate that you feel trapped in a relationship and may want a divorce.
It can also indicate that you are caught up in the emotional Pisces world of dreams and fantasies of the fairy tale marriage and family that you aren’t seeing the reality of the situation. Pisces has a tendency to get lost in reverie and without action you cannot make the dreams concrete. You may be spending too much time dreaming about the perfect relationship that you aren’t allowing viable options to blossom.
If you are in a relationship, you may be ignoring that the relationship isn’t fulfilling you on a spiritual or emotional level. Maybe you have the perfect house, a great car and a devoted husband or wife, but deep down you are discontent. The Ten of Cups warns you that as an obstacle to your happiness you need to examine the root of the situation and find out if you are really happy where you are or if you are just caught up in the illusion of what you think the perfect relationship should look like.
