In the foreground sits an older man with a white beard, who has his back to to the viewer. What is visible about him is his massive cloak, which is decorated in vibrant red, green, and yellow and peacocks and grapes decorate it. To his right are his loyal companions, two grey whippet dogs who have focused their attention solely on him.

Since a major component of this card is stability you can look forward to that in your relationship and you will experience deeper intimacy. If you are single, this card can indicate a new love or an admirer who will make you fall in love with them, and with whom you could possibly spend the rest of your life. In general, all relationships benefit from this card.
Money & Career- In an upright tarot spread the forecast is stability at work. Often the Ten of Pentacles reflects retirement, so if you’re still working you can feel assured that you’re on the right path for the future. If you’re close to retirement this is a very fortuitous reading to have because it depicts the comfort, ease, and financial security everyone wishes for as a retiree. It can also portend an inheritance which will be a secure nest egg for your future.
Health & Wellness- As a card of good things, the Ten of Pentacles can be related to general good health. Everyone suffers from random aches and pains but you are in generally good health and it will stay that way. The theme of family is also prominent so it’s a good idea to check your family history for any possible genetic issues and be prepared for them. Otherwise, enjoy that you can partake of gentle exercise and have few health complaints.
Spirituality- Wealth in finances, family, and spirit. That’s what this card is all about. As you move into the later years of your life you will be rewarded with a sage-like wisdom and find deep comfort and meaning in your spiritual achievements. There is little left to strive for, so you are able to enjoy the benefits of all you have worked for. The solid foundation you have built over the years will bring you much peace and insight as your twilight years approach.
Ten of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings Reversed- Loss, fatality, pension, loneliness, financial failure, family deaths, anxiety, illness, disinheritance, and breaking traditions.
The reversed Ten of Pentacles is not a sign that all the opposite of the positive attributes will occur. In fact, in this case they may merely be lessened. So while your old age may be comfortable it will be tinged with things like loneliness or the burden of an illness. Inheritances in this case can cause a lot of family drama, whether you are the one receiving (or not receiving) it or the one bestowing it. But there will be a pension and money won’t be the ultimate struggle of your old age.
Love & Relationships- Perhaps due to your search for material things, you have neglected this part of your life and now it has become weak and is starting to break. The Ten of Pentacles when reversed means that this neglect can lead to breakups, separation, or divorce. Boredom, lack of attention, and insecurity will greatly affect your close relationships. If you refuse to address these issues, whether they are your fault or not, they will descend into something greater and then your companion will be loneliness. Loneliness is the issue single people are struggling with, and this card reinforces it. The good news is it’s fixable in both cases; committed people need to take the steps to mend the rift and single people need to find ways to be active in community groups.
Money & Career- The Ten of Pentacles is a good omen in terms of career and finance, but when it is reversed the omen tilts to blockades. Something is blocking your success financially. Because you are a hard worker, as the Pentacles describe, it could be you need to get out of your own way. Spending time spinning your wheels in positions where you have no room for advancement, working for pay that is less than you’re worth, and getting bogged down in office politics all distract you from your main purpose. It’s time to get back on track because the future is coming and it’s important to you that you are prepared for it. As for investments, this is not the time unless you’re ready to take a big risk. Waiting until things are more stable is a safer option.
Health & Wellness- Both versions of the Ten of Pentacles, upright and inverted, show positive results for health issues. The biggest risk right now to your health are accidents and unnecessary risks. Wear your seatbelt and take your vitamins. Genetic risks also lurk so knowing what is in your DNA is helpful to giving you power to combat it. Finally, good geriatric care is essential to keeping your good health so be proactive and consistent through your life.
Spirituality- The Ten of Pentacles signifies the end of the road and at this point your spiritual journey is coming to a close. It’s a good thing because it’s time to move onto new planes of existence and new levels of enlightenment. You may feel some regret and remorse for opportunities you missed or things you did throughout your life, or anxiety about what is to come, and the most important takeaway is to process your grief and find peace so you can move on uninhibited. Your spiritual knowledge has been gathered over many years and now is the bask and reflect in your wisdom and look forward to the next journey.
