Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: The Ten of Cups shows a happy family enjoying life in secure circumstances. Unlike the Devil card (which focuses almost exclusively on self-interest and material lusts), the Ten of Cups displays the joy of sharing in close personal relationships. As the last card in the spread, the Ten of Cups suggests that, in the end, the tarot can help us to establish more loving relationships. The Golden Dawn associated this card with the warlike planet Mars, suggesting that the support of close personal relationships can help us weather the stresses and conflicts of daily life.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: In Llewellyn’s Classic Tarot, a hand emerges from a cloud on the left-hand side of the card, holding a golden coin upright in the light blue sky. The hand encircles the upper part of the chalice with its thumb facing the viewer. On its surface the golden coin features a pentacle, often used as a talisman in ritual magic. The five points of the pentacle are associated with the five points of the human body (the head and four limbs) and with the classical five senses (touch, sight, taste, smell, and hearing). People characterized by the suit of Coins or Pentacles tend to be grounded in material reality but may have difficulty making contact with their sixth sense of intuition.
