Even when in reverse, the Ten of Pentacles is still a positive sign. However, this is not the time to risk safety and the things that matter to you to plunge into the games of chance; also, do not grab silly opportunities.
This reversed card is generally a sign that you are receiving a lot of happiness. You still need to pay attention to the lonely feeling that often occurs when people are immersed in a sense of peace. However, you should enjoy what you have instead of worrying.
You may be urged to leave your current stable job to take the opportunity to give you a good source of income just for a whim. You should think carefully before doing anything like that. Of course, life always gives you opportunities, but do not blindly capture them. If you are looking for job, be wary of those smooth talkers as well as those with dishonest plans. Remember that you do not need to pay to get a job.
The Ten of Pentacles, even though it appears in reverse, is still a very positive sign of love. However, if you find yourself starting to feel bored in your current long-term relationship, consider carefully before you decide anything. Both of you should try to experience new things together and talk to each other about your feeling. If you are looking for love, this is a good time to go out and meet people. Your partner will feel you are naturally attracted due to the good and positive energy that is flowing in you.
You will need to be particularly careful about your financial dealings. Things that look quite nice and the potential on the surface might actually be much less profitable than you think. You should invest cautiously and methodically and consider where you are putting your trust in.
In general, your health will be very positive and/or better improved when this card appears. However, do not be subjective. Stupid risks can still happen. You should find out how deep the water is before diving or do not eat food that is likely to cause allergies, etc, or something like that.
The Ten of Pentacles reversed may imply that you are ready for the adventure journey, and through that, your spirit will be able to become a great means to convey this energy source. You should keep an open mind and perspective with new ideas, new journeys, and new ways of thinking about life. Let’s consider learning about a new spiritual community, especially if you are practicing and experiencing spiritual modalities alone. You have nothing to lose when you do so.
Situation and advice
You can feel the threat to your safety. It is not the time to take the financial risk. You may have an opportunity to increase your income, instead, you will lose your job satisfaction or be exhausted. You are on a tight budget, so you need to restructure your finances. Perhaps, you need to sell some shares, houses or properties to manage your life. You may worry about the health of your parents or elderly people in your home. Your parents are probably sick and need medical care.
You may feel overwhelmed by responsibility and commitment to those close to you. There may be problems with pensions or family conflicts over inheritance rights. You can resent your family’s demands on your marriage. You may feel forced to marry because of an unreasonable cause. Unwise financial speculation leads to losses. There may be problems with large corporations or with government representatives.
Those who are surrounded by family problems, those who carry financial burdens.
When we achieve material success, we will certainly want to maintain that prosperity forever. It symbolizes conservatism and the foundation of the Ten of Pentacles. In a Tarot spread, this card often represents rules and compliance with available instructions. Wealthy people rarely have radical views, they love traditional things and what has been proven right. When the change is not encouraged, following existing rules is a must.
