Learn the meaning of the Ten of Pentacles Tarot card
The Ten of Pentacles closes the Suit of Pentacles in Tarot, and thus indicates the culmination of work previously put in, as well as the attainment of fullness in the material field. The card shows an elderly man sitting on a chair, a young couple with a child, and two dogs (symbolizing loyalty and protection). On the card we also see a house, a brick gate, and ten Pentacles scattered everywhere. The card's meaning points to a prosperous and peaceful life, which can also be ensured for future generations. Just like the Ten of Cups, it indicates family matters, but in this case mutual happiness is based mainly on a sense of stability and prosperity. The Ten of Pentacles very often heralds success in the financial field and a moment in life when you can fully enjoy your accumulated wealth.

The Ten of Pentacles is the card of stability, a sense of security and attachment to tradition.
The Ten of Pentacles in an upright position heralds, above all, a very good financial period in which your whole family will benefit from the wealth you have accumulated. The upright Ten of Pentacles may also indicate the birth of a child, and on the other hand a long and prosperous life. The card is a very good omen if your question concerns practical matters, and in certain circumstances it may even indicate the receipt of an inheritance. In itself, however, it does not foretell a period of earning money, but rather indicates the use of previously accumulated wealth. The Ten of Pentacles is the card of the family, that's why when you see it in your Tarot hand of cards it is above all a symbol of good atmosphere and good relations between you and your relatives.

If you are currently single then the upright Ten of Pentacles indicates that you are approaching a new relationship in a mature and responsible manner, and that you are not leaving your choice of life partner to chance. However, the upright Ten of Pentacles does not indicate the timing of entering into a new relationship, so it will not be something singles are likely to see in their schedule.

The Ten of Pentacles in a reversed position in love affairs very often indicates a negative influence of the family on the ongoing relationship.
