10 of Disks and 10 of Cups
The week starts with a Pisces Full Moon on September 1st-2nd. This brings out our intuitive gifts and our sensitivity. The moon amplifies our emotions but also our insights into ourselves and the world.
Both cards we received are number tens. This means they carry the height of their energy and signify an end of a cycle. We are in our fullness, as is the moon and our cards.
The 10 of Disks, or Wealth, wants us to know both our strength and our abundance. It’s a card about connecting with the richness of our lives.
Ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities make us rich. The wildlife, creativity, and intelligence of our planet make us wealthy beyond measure.
It is not about material wealth but seeing how valuable a moonrise, the smell of the ocean, or a talk with a friend can be if we let it.
I know there is so much we don’t have right now and things we long for. Our lives have changed and many of us are struggling.
Without diminishing that in any way, the 10 of Disks asks us to focus on all we do have that makes us rich. It wants us to hold both our pain and the things that make us grateful.
By recounting what makes us blessed, we build up our strength to move forward on our journey. We will then cultivate a powerful reserve of resources. This will support us through difficult times and help us deal with painful experiences.
When we connect to our strengths and the strengths of those who love us, we train our mind to focus on what is strong instead of what is weak. We can see ourselves as the beautiful warrior that we are, the hero in our story.
The 10 of Cups is also referred to as ‘Satiety.’ This card points to a deep feeling of contentment and satisfaction.
In Tarot, the number 10 is the pinnacle of the suit and end of a cycle. It means we have worked hard to achieve a sense of satisfaction, and the fruits of our labor have arrived.
This card points to a stronger and more stable feeling than that of happiness, which is often wavering. It is connected to a grounded-ness that comes from hard work and personal commitment to our values.
It is the feeling we get when we honor our emotional needs and align our actions with our heart. This deep contentment is waiting for us when we invest in our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our community.
What can you do this week to activate the energy of the 10 of Cups? How can you connect with your emotional needs?
If we do something personally satisfying and grounding this week, it will help us navigate the watery energy of the Pisces Full Moon. This Moon will conjure up heightened sensitivity, but we can stay in our wholeness through awareness and compassion.
Mantra for the week: Gratitude and commitment to self bring deep satisfaction. I am whole.
