In the Ten of Cups, we see a couple who loves each other deeply and are filled with eternal love. They are not only happy together but also get what they want in life. This is expressed through the image of two children playing and a small but comfortable house which located behind the trees and rivers. The house symbolizes stability and comfort, the green garden represents fertility and the river represents the free flow of emotions.

The rainbow and the cups in the air symbolize the blessing. The cup represents an abundance of heavenly gifts; the rainbow symbolizes the end of difficult times and is also considered to be a very sacred thing of many religions in the world. It is a sign of serenity that we have been given the blessing and eternal love by the Superior.

The Ten of Cups depicts a carefree couple who is playing around with their children. The house of this family is far away and surrounded by trees and small streams. There is a rainbow over the top of the cups as a blessing for the whole scene. Those sarcastic people may ridicule such a romantic scene, but it is a symbol of our emotional life to the fullest extent. The emotions that appear in this context are extremely ideal and are completely within the reach of each of us.

First of all, this card expresses pleasure which includes happiness, fullness and enjoyment. It is the feeling that comes when we know that we have all those things. Unfortunately, this is not quite a common feeling. We are blinded by the challenges of life many times and feel as if we are drowning in the hardships of life. Still, the pleasure always exists and is the fundamental right of every human being.

Peace is another aspect of the Ten of Cups. It is the feeling of peace that comes when all other elements are in harmony. Each person has an inner peace and a sense of external peace interacting with each other. When you are in harmony with yourself, then you will enjoy the harmony in your environment. When you see this card, you should know that it is possible to end the hostility. If there are conflicts or struggles around you, then this is the time when those things disappear.
