II. The reversed meaning of 10 De Deniers
The negative side of this card refers to the rejection of the body due to sexual characteristics, inability to forget the past, the feeling of living a wasteful life, or a person who someone who owns a huge fortune but never feels happy in life.
In the upright, 10 De Deniers represents or announces a happy family, deep love and respect from everyone involved. But in reverse, there is something hinders that perfect image and the emotional connection is blocked. You might be hoping for a special time with a loved one, but it seems like everything is falling apart. You may be arguing, not spending enough time together or not respecting each other. Your hopes for a harmonious relationship are thwarted for the moment. Therefore, you should try to treat each other with respect and love in order to restore harmony and peace in your relationship. At the same time, you can make the first move by showing compassion and respect so that others can eventually follow your example and reward you for it.
The reversed 10 De Deniers can also highlight an inconsistency between personal values and events. You do not live according to your personal values, and you are not being true to yourself. You allow others to determine what will make you happy rather than searching within yourself for that source of fulfillment. As a result, you wonder if you really believe in what you are doing. At the same time as your initiatives to try to get things done, it is also very important to review the coherence between your values and your actions, otherwise, it may become an obstacle for the future.
10 De Deniers in reverse can also mean that you neglect your family and prioritize material goals such as your career or personal enrichment. Your work/life balance is reduced, and you spend less and less time with your family. You must clearly define where your personal values are and what is really achievable. If you continue to sacrifice those around you, you will find that the relationships will suffer, and you will probably not be able to achieve the family fulfillment which you were aiming for.
