Online Guide to the Tarot

Meanings of the Cards

The Tarot is more than a simple pack of cards. The pack itself comprises 78 cards which combine to form the 'arcana' - symbolic representations of ancient wisdom. These are divided into The Major and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana comprises 22 “trump” cards covering pretty much all aspects of human experience (and quite a bit of divine stuff too). The 56 'Minor' cards are split into the four elemental suits of Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Though these Suits have a variety of names, depending upon which deck you happen to be looking at, we stick here with those names accorded them in the Thoth Tarot deck, whose images you see across the site. 

The Ten of Cups

The Lord of Satiety is a lovely card, indicating that we are full up with contentment and bliss. It is closely connected with the home environment, which is where we should expect a sense of repletion and joy.

When the card comes up, it indicates that life is ordered and fulfilling, that everything is in its proper place, and that things are unfolding as they should. There's a placid sense of happiness here, which should be enjoyed open-heartedly and with a great deal of gratitude.

At the higher spiritual level, this card will often come up to indicate a period of close harmony with the Higher Powers, often after a time of struggle and trial. When this occurs, you will find yourself feeling at one with the Universe, in touch with the energy which flows through it in an unending stream.

Unfortunately there's a word of warning (isn't there always?) - when you are experiencing the influence of the Ten of Cups, ensure that you engage deeply with the energies around you. Don't take them for granted, nor look for problems. Just make sure you enjoy what's happening, and allow your sense of fulfilment to radiate from you.
