You may also find that it symbolizes your own inner emotional turmoil being resolved.
The Ten of Cups indicates the result of all forces – both positive and negative, and tells of an old cycle coming to completion and a new cycle about to begin. It also tells of transition and individuality with purpose.
This card, like the rest of the Cups, has emotional undertones. You can expect to attain some long term goal and it indicates a sense of on-going peace and lasting contentment. This sense of harmony and satisfaction requires much effort and hard work, but there is nevertheless the encouraging awareness that it can be realized if we are prepared to put in the personal effort.
Disruption - Conflict - Disharmony - Miscommunication - misunderstandings
When the Ten of Cups is reversed, the strong bonds that one forges with family and community are broken, or twisted. The Ten of Cups is truly the most 'happily ever after' card, but somehow this idealized image of domestic peace and comfort is broken, or was unrealistic all along. Instead of connections, you may find distance. Instead of coming together, you may be pulling apart.
There is also the possibility that no one can ever live up to your expectations. You want the dream guy who looks amazing, drives a great car, opens doors for you, surprises you with flowers everyday etc. You’re not willing to compromise or you don’t bring much to the table. If this is the case, the 10 of Cups is telling you to be more realistic and set the bar a bit lower, or up your game. If you want a dream partner, you must also become a dream partner.
