Everyone needs a house to live in, but a supportive family is what builds a home.’’

Anthony Liccione


In the Rider-Waite deck, The Ten of Pentacles depicts a lovely family get together beside the entrance of their estate. While husband and wife are chatting, their child and dogs are playing around them. The elderly man watching this happy view of his loved ones, who is presumably grandfather, is shown wearing a beautiful cloak embroidered with grapevine symbols. Surrounding the whole picture, there are the ten gold pentacle coins.

More often than not, the Ten of Pentacles highlights the matters of family and home. Common household concerns, such as past struggles about how to provide better for your family and to make the ends meet are diminished. The financial security the card talks about may be earned through inheritance, retirement, or a stable income.

When the reading is not about wealth, it can suggest that you are highly involved in deepening the roots of your personal relationships. This could mean buying a new home, having a large family, spending more time with your loved ones or marriage.

The Ten of Pentacles can be about happy conclusions as well as fresh new beginnings.

Number 10 represents completion, fulfillment and new potentials.
