Ten of Pentacles

This tarot card is the card of team-inspired achievement. Along our path towards our goal, we have been supported by loyalists, who have made our dreams their own. Their vision has blended with ours, and it requires empathy and diplomacy to acknowledge their contribution, while maintaining our leadership. This card signifies a time when we need to shed the old and don the new, a time when we realize that we are holding onto something that we can no longer add value to. We need to take a long, hard look at our loyalties, our motives, and at what we seek from life.

The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
