Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position)

The Symbolism in the "Ten of Cups" Tarot Card:

A mother and father flourish their arms at a rainbow with ten large golden cups superimposed overtop of it in wonder and contemplation. In front of them is what is presumably their property, a modest house and a river running through a tract of fertile land. Their pose seems to say "look what we've done", as well as being worshipful of the rainbow and cups. Their children, a girl and a boy, dance beside them.

The Meaning of the "Ten of Cups" Tarot Card:

Absolute domestic bliss. The highest possible achievement of a personal family life. Perfect harmony at home. The highest state attainable of physical love. Also represents the individual's home and/or town of residence. The children in this card are playing rather than fighting, even though they appear to be an older and younger sibling - an odd state that can only occur with absolute happiness in their situation.
