Ten of Pentacles Tarot Guide

Share This Post

This post is intended to be a mini Ten of Pentacles Tarot Guide. It is important to mention that the longer you work with the cards the more you will discover how they speak to you. For example, the Ten of Pentacles does have a theme and traditional meaning but I recommend leaving “space” for the card to speak to you. Over time, you may discover that the card represents unique insights or themes for you personally.

Shadow Side of the Ten of Pentacles

  • The 10 of Pentacles reversed often represents disagreement within a group or family that is used to comfort and financial stability. This strife may be caused by financial problems or by having no satisfaction or appreciation of the wealth that currently exists. There is stoicism, coldness, and lack of warmth in the home.
  • Another interpretation is that the querent has been outcast or removed from the family legacy in some way. In this case, they must work hard to keep the family together because the whole is stronger than the individual parts.
  • Question to consider:
    • Do you feel unworthy of the opportunities that are being presented to you?
