45-Ten of Cups – Reversed Rider Waite Deck

When reversed, the Ten of Cups highlights family problems, domestic disruptions, and a sense of sadness in the home. There can also be a certain amount of strife and tension in other personal relationships. You may be experiencing a lack of a sense of fulfillment or a failure to achieve your heart’s desires; or else you have gotten what you want but you find it lacking.

Complete Book of Tarot: The question was asked by a woman whose son had recently been arrested for a DUI (driving under the influence). The penalties in her state were quite harsh for such an offense and she feared her son might go to prison. Because our time was limited, I had her draw only two cards with the intention of understanding the likely outcome of her son’s day in court. She pulled the Six of Swords and the Ten of Cups, in that order.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 5: In the 1400s, the original tarot decks were used for card games in northern Italy. Around this time, the church was preaching against all games of chance (playing cards, dice, board games, and so on) as forms of gambling and frivolous activity that distracted the faithful from the road to salvation. In modern times, Pope Francis (2014) has said: ‘In order to solve their problems many people resort to fortune tellers and tarot cards. But only Jesus saves, and we must bear witness to this! He is the only one.’ 6 Interestingly, the modern use of the tarot for self-exploration is more consistent with the ideas of the Protestant Reformation than with traditional Catholicism because tarot assumes that individuals can discover truth on their own without the intermediary of a hierarchical religious organization.

Complete Book of Tarot: Former president Bill Clinton was born on August 19, 1946. Thus, his birth cards are found by adding 8 + 19 + 1946 = 1973, and then reducing 1973: 1 + 9 + 7 + 3 = 20. Clinton’s personality card is 20, Judgment (XX), and his soul card is 20 reduced: 2 + 0 = 2, the High Priestess (II).
