the ten of cups is a card of harmony. it is a card of completion, but not just an end, also a beginning. it is a card of happiness, but the kind of happiness that took effort to embrace. it is a card of family and home, marriage and commitment, and the fulfillment it may bring, but also acknowledges the struggles that we may have to work through to gain it. this card calls us to celebrate, but not just for the harmony and the happiness, but for our choice to move forward into it and the work we did while on that journey. it asks us to embrace change, but not accept all transition as uncertainty. because happiness and harmony awaits us, if we choose to receive it. this card also reminds us that it will be the most fulfilling when we have cultivated lasting relationships with those we wish to share our happiness with. this card welcomes you to see all of the positivity that exists near you and embrace it.
people are brought into our lives to help us gain harmony. to compliment our lives. to share happiness. but the cause for celebration, as depicted on the ten of cups, suggests that we must arrive at this place through overcoming struggle and working towards a place of harmony. we must embrace the transition that we pass through before we arrive, but we do not have to accept it as uncertain because we can make the conscious choice as to what we are transitioning into. if we want to choose harmony, we can set our intention and work to not lose sight while moving towards it. we must be certain that no matter what path we choose, we will achieve this fulfillment. it is our choice to see this certainty and trust in it, to not fear the power that it holds.
these certain people that are brought into our lives to help us gain true fulfillment, happiness, and harmony, they are not here to just to share in it with us. they help us move through the transition. they help us move forward from just existing to making the conscious choice of how we desire to exist. some people may bring up the exact situation that causes us to move into this transition. they may bring up things in ourselves that we need to heal, they may reflect in us parts of ourselves that we wish to change, they may guide us with attributes that we wish to embody, they may challenge to be the best version of ourselves, they may bring up the lessons that we are always avoiding learning, they may ask us to patiently observe or deeply tune in to our own inner callings.
sometimes we shy away from these people that are calling us to transition because the transition still seems to hold uncertainty. sometimes we shy away from these people out of fear of disappointing them. sometimes we shy away because we feel as though we are not ready, or maybe even that we are not worthy. but just as the ten of cups desires for you to see the positive things you have and the happiness before you, i also assure you that you are worthy of it all. and that when you make the choice to be ready... harmony, happiness, fulfillment, celebration, and positive relationships will await you, if that is what you truly desire and you follow that desire. only through the shadows may we truly see all of the light. but we must want to see. and not be too fearful to open our eyes.
