Ten of Pentacles Tarot Card Description

Numbers made of Two or more digits have to be changed into a single digit number, so Ten becomes 1+0, which gives it the value 1. One is associated with being single minded and motivated. Pentacles (also known as Coins) are concerned with the materialistic side of life, such as money and property. One and Pentacles together, suggest a determination to achieve material success and the ability to do so.

Upright Meaning

The Ten of Pentacles is associated with material success and affluence. It is also a Card that is connected with convention. This Card draws on the mainstream notions of achievement, which is great if that is what you desire. Furthermore, the Ten of Pentacles concerns itself with how others perceive us and our social status. This Card suggests that your social standing is very high at the moment, at least with the more conventional members of society, and your bank manager no doubt thinks you’re the tops! If you are not enjoying a fantastic financial time at the moment, you could be feeling decidedly put out, as you see others around you enjoying the good life. In general, the meaning of this Card depends on what you value. If you are the conservative type who has traditional values and seeks to climb the social ladder, you are in a good position to conquer the pinnacle of the social Everest. In contrast, if you’re more Woodstock than stock exchange, you could find yourself bored and constrained by the company that surrounds you. You may even find that something about your job or family background leaves you feeling alienated and trapped. Whatever your take on life, the Ten of Pentacles offers you security. The question is, is that what you really want, or will you find yourself trapped in a gilded cage?

Reversed Meaning

Wealth, family status or a high powered job may have made others’ envy, respect or even copy you, but how do you feel about yourself? You may swagger around the streets, but this could be an attempt to hide the fact that you are really a shrinking violet. Having so much may have made you vulnerable, fearing that you will lose everything you have, or that others are hatching plots to oust you from your throne. Success brings its own concerns, the fear of theft, the need to insure costly items and the jealousy of others. Do you yearn for simpler times? Family members could be making demands by imposing their values on you, intentionally or otherwise. Alternatively, a spendthrift relative or friend could try tapping you for cash.
