The 10 of Cups is the card of fairytales. Happy endings are always predicted with the 10 of Cups, so if you’ve got it in your Tarot reading, consider yourself lucky!
If you have drawn the 10 of Cups, you can expect to achieve perfect contentment. Happiness in the family is predicted with this card. Love, marriage, soulmates and the birth of children are all possibilities.
The 10 of Cups symbolizes your happy ever after. After the hardships and struggles of achieving the things you want, you can kick back and enjoy your life for a while.
Sometimes, the 10 of Cups can mean that – deep down – you want that traditional family life with a white picked fence. If you’re performing a relationship reading, try to assess if you and your lover are on the same page with regards to the things you both want.
There will be times when the 10 of Cups appears in a negative spread position or as a drawback. Although rarely negative, the 10 of Cups can be if it appears to be in a ‘bad’ spread position. However, because the 10 of Cups is a card of hope these interpretations only apply if it lands in a ‘negatives’ ‘drawbacks’ ‘obstacles’ or ‘challenges’ position.
If your 10 of Cups has landed in a negative spread position, it means that getting the happy family life you crave will not make you feel contented. Perhaps, you like the thought of having your desires more than you would enjoy living them.
There is also the possibility that no one can ever live up to your expectations. You want the dream guy who looks amazing, drives a great car, opens doors for you, surprises you with flowers everyday etc. You’re not willing to compromise or you don’t bring much to the table. If this is the case, the 10 of Cups is telling you to be more realistic and set the bar a bit lower, or up your game. If you want a dream partner, you must also become a dream partner.

In historical times, the 10 of Cups card was associated with the home and with cities. Perhaps, the 10 of Cups is a sign that you will find what you’re looking for in a large city instead of the country side.
The Ten of Cups in a Love Reading
If your partner or potential partner not open with you about their feelings? Are you wondering how they feel about you? Do not threat as the 10 of Cups is a very good sign that they want to provide you with your fairytale ending.
Marriage and children could be on the cards for this relationship. This is definitely something your partner wants, so do not worry about being open and honest if you feel the same way. If you’re already attached and the relationship is as serious as you would like, the 10 of Cups can predict a change of scenery and new home.
Struggling to achieve the type of relationship you want? And keep seeing the 10 of Cups as a ‘negative’ or ‘drawback’? This can mean that you’re too keen to express to your future plans when you first meet someone. Or your relationships possibly get too serious too quickly and this causes them to fizzle out. Therefore, your Tarot cards are telling you to get to know potential partners better before you have fantasies of walking up the isle.
However, the 10 of Cups is usually positive for love and partnerships so even if it appears in a negative position, this can be a sign that all isn’t as bad as you think and you will still get the things you want.
