How can you improve your current situation?
The tarot card of the day is the reversed Ten of Cups.
The Ten of Cups in the upright position is exactly what it depicted: a happy family, children dancing, and colorful rainbows. Everything is in balance and there is a feeling of contentment. It's a moment to cherish and remember always.
However, when The Ten of Cups reverses, the rainbow turns on its back and the beautiful Golden Cups topple. Suddenly, it can symbolize the complete opposite.
Before we dig deeper into the meaning of the Ten of Cups reversed, let's take a look at the general meaning of the card. The Ten of Cups is associated with the following: family, relationships, home life, contentment, emotional fulfillment. In the reversed position, the card can represent disharmony, broken relationships, or family conflict.
Okay, breathe. Here's some good news: the Ten of Cups reversed is not always a bad omen. It can simply be a reminder to watch out for future issues that may arise in your relationships.
Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Although the general meaning of this card is negative when it appears upside down, try not to immediately jump to conclusions. Instead, take some time to really think about what the card is trying to tell you. Is there something in your life that's causing disharmony? Are there any broken relationships that need mending?
By taking the time to see yourself in the mirror and reflect on the meaning of the card, you can get a better understanding of what it's trying to tell you. Only then can you take the necessary steps to improve your current situation.
Seeing both sides.
There are always two sides to every story. After a long and deep self-evaluation, you start to think that maybe the problem isn't with everyone else.
Have you been neglecting your family? Are you too focused on your career? When is the last time you reach out and open up to your partner? If you are not happy with the answers, then there is no easy way to put this. Sometimes, you are the toxic one.
After you accept this fact and you're over the initial shock, you can try to see it in another way. What Ten of Cups reversed is trying to tell you is that there is nothing more important than the value of family love and relationships.
If you continue to neglect those who love you, you will only end up causing more pain and suffering. Not just for them, but also for yourself. You are self-sabotaging your chance for love and romance.
It is time to take a good look at your life and start making some changes. It starts with acknowledging the problem and taking responsibility for it. From there, you can begin to work on mending the relationships that you have broken.
See beyond the facade.
The Ten of Cups Reversed can also be a sign that things are not the way it seems to be. Take another look at the couple in the reversed version of this card.
The woman is slightly pulling away from the man who has his arm around her waist. Her body language indicates that she is not interested in him anymore. The man, on the other hand, looks like he's trying to hold on to her. He doesn't want to let go. The question is, are you the man or the woman?
Either way, it shows that you are not happy in your relationship and yet you pretend to be happy. Or it could be the other way around: your spouse or partner is not happy with you.
Whatever your situation is, the fact remains the same: pretending to be happy in a relationship can take its toll on your emotional and physical health. If you are not doing something to change it, you may never be happy again as long as you are still together.
Do not feel discouraged. Reconciliation is always possible, even in the darkest of times. So, what's next?
Have a heart-to-heart with your spouse or partner in private without any distractions. Talk about your feelings and be honest with each other. If you still love each other, work on rebuilding the trust that has been broken. It will take time, but it is possible to get through this rough patch in your relationship. The Ten of Cups Reversed is a reminder that relationships take work - it is not always easy, but it is always worth it.
