Present Events:

Congratulations! All your work and efforts have ultimately culminated in a period of comfort and success. No worries about whether or not it’s going to last.

Your home and the foundation you built it on are solid. You will be called upon by others to dispense the wisdom you’ve accumulated over the years to the ears of those that need it.

Future Events:

You aren’t there yet, but you soon will be. In the days coming you will have achieved all that you’ve worked for for so long.

You will reach that pinnacle and find yourself able to, at last, rest your feet on the proverbial porch, and spend your time at rest, instead of forever climbing towards that peak.

Ten of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings – Reversed


ten of pentacles reversedThe Ten of Pentacles reversed represents a barrier between you and all you’ve worked to achieve. Something has dug under the foundations of the situation and left it weak.

Perhaps someone has moved on their way, perhaps communication is breaking down or the foundation of the financial situation has just collapsed. Whatever the case, the Ten of Pentacles represents instability and loss.

Past Events:

These past few months have seen struggles in your security. There have been financial struggles and communication breakdowns. Perhaps a relationship has fallen apart, perhaps investments that were once good have been weakened and the foundation of your security has been undermined.

Present Events:

Your life is deeply unsettled, and the source of that instability is in the lack of communication between yourself and those involved in your life. The only way to fix this situation is to open up those pathways of communication again.

Future Events:

The future holds an instability, and it’s time for you to start taking steps to secure your situation to the best of your ability. Prepare for things to fall through, for there is an inevitability to the nature of what is coming your way. The only thing you can do is bolster your foundation against it.
