Tarot Insights: Ten of Coins

Ten of Coins—Bonefire Tarot Deck

Ten of Coins—Bonefire Tarot

In the Bonefire deck, the Ten of Coins (aka pentacles) is illustrated by ten flowers in bloom, a coin in the center of each, growing in lush green grass. We can see the roots of one of the flowers, and there is a dog sniffing around the foreground, seemingly also at root level.  A castle sits in the background. Between the flowers and the castle is a clothesline with a few items of clothing that seem plain yet new, or at least well cared for.

The ten of Coins is the culmination of that practical, tangible, material earth energy. It is often associated with family, especially in association with legacies or Dynasties. Every family has its own traditions and attributes that make them unique, and in the best of circumstances they are handed down and cherished from generation to generation as a linear connection to shared ancestry, stretching back to the beginning of civilization, uniting more of us the further back we follow the line, forming a strong connection to our foundation. The castle in the background is a stand-in for that foundation—for how many generations has that castle served as a dwelling, and for how many more will it remain.

The family legacy might take the form of a family business, or it might be a talent that runs in the family, musicianship, for example. Whatever ties this family together there is strength, security, and abundance. This family is secure and thriving. All is well.
