Ten of Pentacles
The basic meaning of the card (Rider-Waite)
The basic meaning of the Ten of Pentacles (Rider-Waite) is one of complete and lasting success, family welfare, and inheritance. The card shows an older man surrounded by his family and riches, and ten pentacles arranged in the shape of a tree. It symbolizes that through long-term work and commitment you have achieved material security and created a strong foundation for your family and future generations.
When the Ten of Pentacles is reversed, it indicates that you have achieved or are about to achieve long-term economic and material success. Your hard work has paid off and created stability and security for you and your family. The card can also mean that you are receiving or will be giving an inheritance that contributes to your well-being.
When the Ten of Pentacles is inverted, it may indicate that you are feeling overwhelmed by responsibility and that your family’s well-being feels like a burden. It could also mean that you are too focused on material successes and neglecting other aspects of your life. Alternatively, it could mean that you are having difficulty achieving long-term financial security despite working hard to achieve it.
If the Ten of Pentacles appears in a reading about your professional life, it may indicate that you are on the way to achieving long-term success and stability in your career. It may also indicate that you have the opportunity to leave an inheritance or secure foundation for your family and future generations. The card encourages you to focus on long-term goals and work hard to secure your and your family’s future.
