Ten of Pentacles


Ten of PentaclesThe seed planted in the Ace of Pentacles has grown into a full and rooted tree. The grounding, earthy quality of this suit is fully realized in the ten. And like with many mature trees, it is bearing fruit.

We talk about our “roots,” when we refer to ancestors, home, or anything that speaks of tribe. It suggests something old, established, and traditional. It also suggests a certain amount of wealth and comfort. Even “humble roots” are glorified for their soulful riches of love. These roots run deep, gathering together generations worth of nourishment. Hold this image for a while as you look at your spread.

When you get this card, try not to fixate on the abundance of coins. You may or may not be receiving buckets of money. But, it is certain that you are enjoying the fruits of the generations before you. These generations might or might not be related to you by blood, but they are part of your tribe. This card represents the riches of heritage. They form your foundation. It is now is the time to carefully design and build your own home.


The Ten of Pentacles only interacts with the Emperor.

Major Arcana

Emperor: Any cards from the suit of Pentacles can indicate an offer of a position of authority. This position is likely to involve finance and carry heavy responsibilities.

The Suit — Pentacles, Coins, or Diamonds

The pentacle is a symbol of earth magic. The coin is wealth and wages. The diamond is a symbol of wealth, pulled from the ground and refined by human hands into something enduring and elegant. This suit represents all things related to the earth. It represents the work of our hands. It represents those conspicuous signs of wealth that show us and our neighbors how successful we are, but this is merely material wealth. We can pass this on to the next generation, but it is worthless if we choose to bury it with ourselves.

Number — 10

Ten is a number of completion, harvest, and the end of a cycle.
