The Ten of Cups represents happiness drawn from all of the many ideas you have had, and is a symbol of what your emotional life is when you are at your best. The feelings represented are all the good that is within the reach of each of us. When you see the Ten of Cups, know that an end to the hostility in your life is coming. If there is fighting around you, it will cease. If you are at war with yourself, you will find peace. The rainbow across the top of the Ten of Cups is an ancient symbol of peace and prosperity. Leprechauns hide their gold at the end of the rainbow, and it will be available to you in your future.
When the Ten of Cups Reversed appears, it is showing that all the positive energy you have is either blocked or it is being misdirected. When the pressure of the blocked energy is rising but doesn’t have an outlet, it may be released explosively. Make an extra effort to be positive so it doesn’t get to that point. Emotional conflicts can steal your Joy. If you can control your emotions and don’t let the negative energy get the best of you, these cups are full of gratitude, peace, and love, and they will bring reconciliations, lasting marriages, and sincere friendships.
