The reversed Ten of Cups very often speaks of a great need for emotional fulfillment, but which cannot be achieved at the moment. This is especially true if you want to have a family, if you feel lonely at the moment, or if for some reason you cannot afford a child. The reversed Ten of Cups also represents emotional instability, which can lead to problems in maintaining a relationship or marriage. The card alludes to situations where certain events may lead to the breakdown of your current family life. It also represents a great longing for warmth and closeness from those closest to you. The reversed Ten of Cups may indicate problems with children, or an unhappy childhood in your life. In this position, this card strongly suggests that you are trying to chase something that is unrealistic. You may be idealizing your family or experiencing jealousy from others who want what you currently have. The strong emotions you are experiencing at the moment are blurring your vision of reality, and this is making you vulnerable to manipulation, especially by your family.
The reversed Ten of Cups above all speaks of family problems, especially those which may involve your children, and also of a longing for closeness. However, if you don't have any children, the Ten of Cups reversed may speak of problems in getting pregnant, or the wrong time to make such a decision. The card suggests emotional instability or unfulfilled love. You may find that your relationship only looks happy and successful on the surface, but in reality it is not giving you joy. This can lead to a slow breakdown of family life, which is why it is so important to secure its continued existence. If you see the reversed Ten of Cups, it is a sign that you may be placing too high an expectation on your loved ones. Don't try to live up to your ideals as this can lead to constant frustration and dissatisfaction. The card points to conflicts, quarrels and a dysfunctional family. It indicates a difficult childhood caused by the separation of parents or a foster family. Perhaps there are secrets or hidden problems in your family that need to be resolved now to avoid such a situation in the near future.
