The 10 of Cups is the wheel of Water, the ever changing fortunes of the heart. Love, joy relationships, emotions, peace, interconnectness, along with their opposites, war, loss, grief suffering, separation are all part of the wheel of water and make up the whole spectrum of the experience of being alive.
The red horse is the heart, his thundering hooves the smooth beat of the turning wheel which pumps the blood, drawing in and pushing out the ancient bloodline. Every one of us rides this horse in our short lives. As stewards of royal blood, it passes through us and to our children and from them to their children.
The Mother and child are Memento Mori which in Latin means to remember your morality. Death comes for each of us equally and often without warning, one should always be prepared for it and should always be prepared for it and live life to the fullest, Carpe Diem! -Mary El
If you are struggling, this card indicates that you or your partner are overthinking and things are not as bad as they might seem. Feel reassured that things are going better than you think they are.
This is a good time to increase your finances because things are looking good. Health problems will improve soon. Over all life is going smoothly. There could be some positive news from a family member or a partner. Share your love and happiness without boasting.
If reversed or you are struggling it indicates that someone is being over dramatic and presenting a false face. They are one way in public and different in others. Someone is faking how awesome they are. This could be someone that is choosing to avoid all negativity, thinking it will make them happier, but it only leaves the problem sitting around waiting for a chance to pop back up time and again until it is resolved. Pessimism will weigh down the situation, so try to lift everyone’s spirits and get the energy level raised to get the problem resolved.
This card overall reveals a time of prosperity and advancement. Now is a time to approach situations that need resolution and end it while everyone is on an even keel. It is a good time to make stronger commitments with partners. It is a good time to begin an engagement.
