The Ten of Disks
The Lord of Wealth talks not only about material wealth and its appropriate use, but about the inner wealth and resources that we all have. This is a card that teaches us that the harvest we gather in our lives is the end result of all that we have put into living - and more importantly, how we have used the riches at our disposal.
We make our own realities with every thought, every deed, every wish. And when we direct our energies positively we shall arrive - as a perfectly natural consequence - at the Ten of Disks. Of course, if we direct our energies negatively we'll find ourselves with the Ten of Wands, or the Ten of Swords - neither of which are happy cards!
There is a warning connected to this card though. When we have created sufficient wealth to make ourselves comfortable and contented, if we have a surplus, then we must make that surplus work. We cannot expect energy to flow freely in our lives if we hoard it, and try to hang on to it. This is as pointless as trying to save up the breeze so that it will blow on a stuffy day! There are some things in life you cannot clutch tight in the hand without crushing their value out of them.
If this card comes up in an everyday reading, it re-assures that financial and material matters are proceeding well, and that there is no cause for concern.
If it comes up in a more spiritually based reading, then we need to be applying the underlying principles to our lives - so in this case, we need to be letting our inner wealth show, in order to manifest that into our lives.
