Today you may be thinking about your “happily ever after” in the form of a marriage or soul-mate type relationship.

The symbolism depicted in this card — from the Mythic Tarot’s deck — certainly depicts this type of union.

Here we see Psyche and Eros being joined in holy matrimony, ten golden goblets stacked carefully before them. Psyche has been elevated to Goddess status, her virginal white gown and wings now a shimmering gold. They’re joined together as One, equal in every way.

The Ten of Cups tells you that you’ve achieved something worth acknowledging and celebrating, as seen here in the imagery of this card. It’s about fulfillment and security; a solid foundation of abundance and prosperity, and the sense that you have built something you can take pride in.

But the Ten of Cups — as with all tens — also implies a crescendo or culmination, which forces you to look at the “now what?” aspects of your relationship.

Is it possible to be loved too much or to have so much affection for another that you feel like you’re bursting at the seams? This is the basis of the state of limerence, which is an almost obsessive sense of longing and infatuation — the kind that hurts as much when you’re together as it does when you’re apart.

Falling in love is a beautiful thing. And as long as you’ve got your feet on the ground, it can last a lifetime. But this card also speaks of the capacity to love someone so desperately that you lose track of where you end and they begin.

You want to temper your desires to merge with another with the enough independence and autonomy to sustain one another separately. This is how any of us can be elevated to our own divine statures, by making the sum of the parts greater than the whole.

Today you may be feeling like all is right in your world again. The Ten of Cups is a gratitude card: it refers to a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction with where you are and what you have.

Sometimes this is a marriage card, a joining together with someone else who shares your happiness. And sometimes it’s an accomplishment card — coming to a point where you’re able to count your blessings and express contentment with your present circumstances.

If you’re not feeling these things — look around you: the glass is at least half full! This extends well beyond financial or material security. It’s more about family, lasting friendships and a comfort — in your home and your community — surrounded by people you love.

You want to align yourself with a vibration of gratitude as the Ten of Cups speaks of not only getting what you’ve “asked” for (via the principles of law of attraction) but also being thankful for all that you’ve received.

In this version of the card, the — from the Tarot of Pagan Cats   a family of cats bask in the sunlight that pours in on them from the landscape behind. A rainbow banner hangs from a table behind them, upon which 10 full cups are placed.

The feline parents are busy grooming one another while their offspring play at their feet. You can “feel the love” that is present in this image and know that all is as it should be for them.

The Ten of Cups is all about embracing all you’ve established through your connections and interactions with others. It’s about happiness and security in the areas that matter most — with family, friends and loved ones.

This is not the time to think about what is lacking in your life but rather what makes it complete. And while you don’t want to be resting on your laurels, it’s important to acknowledge those who are most important to you and who keep your cup continuously full.

Ask the Astrologers: Is He Gone for Good?

A client whom we’ll call Tara, wrote in with a question regarding her long-term relationship which ended abruptly in November. She writes:

As the new year looms, I’m looking around and still confused and shocked at what has rolled out in the past few months.

My now ex boyfriend broke up with me after a long term relationship during which we’d made constant plans for our future. We purchased a home together and got a dog, were talking about combining our 401Ks, discussing marriage, etc.

About a month before we planned to get engaged, he started becoming more and more distant and when I pressed him on it, he got defensive and withdrew further.

He ended up breaking up with me, and I’ve since moved out. I was completely blind-sided by this and am still reeling over what seems like a selfish and impulsive decision.

Today is a good day for counting your blessings and knowing that you’ve come by to a place in your life where you’re aware of what (and whom) truly matters most.

The Ten of Cups tells you that you’ve achieved something worth acknowledging and celebrating, as seen here in the imagery of this card.

This extends well beyond financial or material security. It’s more about family, lasting friendships and a comfort — in your home and your community — surrounded by people you love.

In this version of the card we see two strong arms — a man’s and a woman’s — lifting a golden chalice up in a show of harmony and unity.

A colorful rainbow pours into the chalice, while nine more cups are lined up like a staircase behind them, reminding us of the steps that have been taken to lead us to where we are today.

The landscape behind them is serene and peaceful, with lush verdant hillsides and trees. Even the surface of the water is calm..

Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s super moon today we have Venus trining Mars… a planetary aspect wonderful for love and in this instance as the two planets are in Air signs… love is all about communication.

The Ten of Cups is all about happiness and as can be seen from the image on this card nothing is going to ruffle your feathers today.

You have your two feet planted firmly on the ground or as can be seen from this image you have your feet well and truly planted within the ground as if you are so in touch with yourself and what you want that nothing will shake you from your goals.

Ten cups lay in front of you as if they are floating on clouds which is another indication of today’s transits with Mars and Venus trining in air signs (clouds).

However, the other interesting astrological aspect that occurs today is Mercury re entering Cancer after a few weeks of retrograde movement and will soon come to pass over the degree of Cancer it first went retrograde at. Problems you may have experienced the last few weeks are coming to an end.

It’s time for you to slow down any thoughts which have been racing through your mind so quickly that you can’t catch hold of them.

Make some time today to experience some happiness in your life.  Be thankful for everything you have in your life and don’t’ go looking for problems.

This shouldn’t be too difficult with the Moon coming into contact with Jupiter today which should see your emotions overflowing with joy… enough to melt the snow on that mountain in the distance? You bet!

If there has been something you have been troubled over and not sure what you should do about it then perhaps the answer is to do nothing at all. Instead you may wish to be like the butterfly in this card and rise about all that is going on around you seeking out new horizons.

This is not a card about adventures it is more to do with feeling content within yourself and with what you have.  There is no lack in the 10 cups… it is a card of abundance.

Take a leaf out of the image of the flowers blooming on the branches.  Nothing can hold back that growth not even with frosty conditions around.

Today is like that for you… nothing and no one can hold you back.

The reflection of what is in your heart will shine through to yourself and others around you… spread your wings and soar.

In this version of the card, the Ten of Cups (portrayed in this deck as Moons) seems to refer more to serenity and self-containment than anything else. Notice the shuttered windows on the tower and the two slivered moons locked in an embrace above it. The 8 phases of the Moon are arched above the tower, which we can only surmise is filled with love, health, and happiness — the things that are really most important to any one of us.

ARIES: Nine of Swords

You may be tossing and turning in your sleep this month; stressing over concerns that seem to have no resolution.

This card speaks of our tendencies to magnify problems, often making them out to be worse than they are.

You’ll need to learn to step back from intrusive thoughts and fears before they escalate into full-on panic. This doesn’t mean you should ignore your problems: that may be what’s gotten you into your predicament in the first place.

You’ll have to confront your fears head-on if you’re ever going to conquer them. You may have to look at where you’ve made mountains out of molehills or have been your own worst enemy.

You may have contributed to your problems, as responsibilities that have been avoided could very well be coming back to haunt you now. But it’s also important to forgive yourself for past mistakes and work on putting them behind you.
