What does the Ten of Water Tarot card mean?

Learn the meaning of the Ten of Water Tarot card in under a minute!

Ten of Water Upright Meaning

The Ten of this suit traditionally signifies family and community, often showing a celebratory scene including many generations, crowned by a rainbow signifying the end of hard times.

See this vision -- love and support extending in all directions -- a huge emotional safety net for everyone.

Ten of Water Reversed Meaning

The Ten of Cups reversed suggests that a group's collective good will is damaged and its safety net is fraying. Personal judgments and rejection abound. Things are being said and done that will be regretted later.

Someone has to make the first move in a more positive direction, leaving judgment and criticism behind. Mediation is called for in order to re-establish some mutual trust and support. This person will provide an example for others to follow -- or the team endeavor will dissolve. The storm which precedes the rainbow is not yet over.

Ten of Water Advice Position

With the Ten of Cups in this position, prioritize teamwork over your personal goals. Everyone needs to feel they made a contribution. The crew needs to feel they are all in this together, and everyone needs to be rewarded when the ship comes in.

It's essential to follow a teamwork approach in order to maximize the benefits for yourself. The good will that will emerge from such an approach will last long after the project is over. You will be generously rewarded later if you take a selfless approach at this time.

Ten of Water Love Position

With the Ten of Cups in this position, you may have achieved a level of harmony -- both within yourself and the one with whom you would like to be romantically involved. Your cause for rejoicing outweighs normal tendencies to bicker or compete. Your life is like one big happy family -- all the players enjoy a sense of fulfillment.

Your psychic life is in order. Likewise, your entire inner family -- including your inner child, parent self, confused adolescent, sharp and capable professional -- are working together. A major effort has been brought to fruition, satisfying you on all levels. Take note of what this feels like and keep it conscious, even as relationship circumstances change and your sub-personalities try to reassert themselves. This is the optimal state for mental, physical, interpersonal, and spiritual health.

Ten of Water Career Position

When the Ten of Cups is in this position, the whole world seems to be filled with feelings of relief over the difficult passage that has just been completed. It may have seemed like the great heavens above created miraculous interventions and unpredictable synchronicities in your career or workplace. It's as if the whole endeavor were being watched over by a higher force.

Of course this outcome was not arrived at without stress and challenge. Every element of the group organism was tested. Equate this magic moment with the clarity that suffuses the landscape after inclement weather -- it is all the more precious in contrast with what came before. Even if life cannot stay this way forever, at least all may be right in your career or work environment. Now is the time to be united and appreciative. Feel a sense of awe at the progression of events. This charmed moment reminds us of the Creator's blessing upon the whole Creation.
