|Sacred Rose Tarot (US Games 1982)|
What does the Tree of Life have to do with the Ten of Pentacles, though? It suggests that this card is to the tarot minors what the World card is to the tarot majors. (It's also interesting that the the Ten of Pentacles is the only card in the pack that depicts the Tree of Life in its entirety.) In some ways, the Ten of Pentacles represents a culmination of all the work that has gone before. It is like a payoff, or a reward. The results of previous actions or events, and fortunately, the results seem pretty positive!
This card invites some questions:
What have I accomplished thus far in my life? (or in this week, this day, this project, this issue?)
Where have I come from?
How have I triumphed? What lessons have I learned?
What is in my life right now that could be considered a reward?
What are some things that I may not recognize as a culmination of what has gone before? How are they that?
If I step back and look, what 'big picture' can I see that normally I do not see? What connections can I make today to help me join up some of the dots in my life (or my situation, my feelings, my issues).
What is there in my life that I can feel proud of and satisfied with?
What is there in my life that makes me feel secure, grounded and contented?
Have I acknowledged and given thanks for those things?
