The Ten of Cups tarot card shows a couple embracing, with arms around each other’s backs, and stretching their free arms up to the sky as they stand underneath a beautiful rainbow laden with ten golden chalices. Two happy children dance together beside this couple. In the distance a small stream runs towards a house with a red roof. There is a clear sense of joy and complete happiness in this uplifting picture.

Love & Relationships- When this tarot card is drawn upright for questions of love it is a great omen, especially for those already in long-term relationships. This is considered a soulmate card as it depicts happy and harmonious relationships for lovers. Likewise, it can mean that your relationship will become stronger by getting married or having a baby. Single people aren’t excluded though, and good news exists for you too. You will have a new long-term commitment- the kind of relationship you have dreamed of.
Money & Career- The fruits of your labor will start being born and your hard work will start paying off. While your finances are improving you’ve gotten some breathing room, so now is the best time to take a break from work and reconnect with loved ones. Whether you do this through a staycation or a dream trip, the point is to spend quality time with your nearest and dearest. It will quickly put your monetary success into the back of your mind and you’ll experience wealth in a whole new way.
Health & Wellness- The changes you have made to improve your health will slowly show benefits. It doesn’t feel fast enough, but that’s ok. These are deep-seated changes and they take time. Positive results come in many forms and if you’ve been debating trying something now is the time. Your energy and immune system will be greatly improved, along with your mental outlook.
Spirituality- Your positivity and happy disposition will radiate form within you. You will literally feel the glow emanating from you every day. When the Ten of Cups in matters of the soul, you will see your spiritual path is falling into place. Things will seem to come together suddenly and make sense in a way they never have before.
Ten of Cups Tarot Card Meanings Reversed- Unhappiness, arguments, incompatibility, indignation, regret, neglect, divorce, dysfunctional family, disharmony, and sorrow.
When reversed, the Ten of Cups tarot card highlights arguments and conflicts. In general, it is a bad omen. The positivity of the upright readings are completely overturned. Love, contentment and harmony have now become hatred, conflict, and discontent. This can manifest as family problems, marital issues, or even child abuse. These challenges and struggles will emanate mostly from the home, family, and very close relationships. It may also bring a warning of miscarriage and infertility.
Love & Relationships- The reversed Ten of Cups says you may be spending a lot of time doubting your significant other. While internally you may desire a happy marriage, your actions are not supporting that. There is disharmony within you that is causing rifts in your relationship. Don’t be dismayed, though, as often this card merely points to a lack of alignment between partners. This is nothing to be devastated over and can be resolved with open communication and taking hold of your fantasies. Do not ruin what is because of what you imagine to be.
Money & Career- Again, there is some lack of cohesion between you and others, in this case between you and your work. Coworkers may be causing you great frustration or your boss may not be “hearing you” when you voice concerns or ideas. You feel out of sync with your work life and this is causing you anguish. Here’s the tricky part- much of this card intuits that your perceptions come from your internal monologue. The first thing to ask yourself is are these scenarios true or are you misinterpreting them? From there, you will be able to determine your path.
Health and Wellness- Lack of harmony in managing your health is the greatest battle you have to face. Though we can’t stop aging, as much as we would like to, it’s important to make peace with the fact our physical bodies will suffer and fail over time. However, when we refuse to acknowledge our finite existence we actually exacerbate our aches and pains. It may not be perfect but it is your body, the only one you have. Eat a balanced diet, engage in an active lifestyle, and stick to a reasonable wellness goal. You will find a sense of relief in knowing you are caring for your earthly vessel to the best of your ability, come what may.
Spirituality- In a spiritual context, a reversed Ten of Cups indicates that you need to be true to yourself in order to find your spiritual path. Following the “yogi of the moment” or the newest spiritual fad is not your answer to enlightenment. Your fulfillment will come from connecting with the spiritual modalities that speak most to you, whether they are “cool” or not.
