The Ten of Pentacles is the card of legacy, family, solid foundations, stability, tradition, and wealth. In this card, an old man is shown surrounded by his family at his wealthy estate. He is surrounded by his children, his grandchildren, and his dogs. Everyone is playing happily and enjoying each other’s company. This legacy is the fruit of everything this man has worked for in his lifetime.
The Ten of Pentacles reminds us that a strong relationship can build a legacy over time. Eventually, a couple becomes family. Together, they can achieve their goals, whether that is having children or starting a business together. Whatever it is that you want to achieve in life, your relationships with others make your goals meaningful, and you can often do it together. It is no longer about me, but about we.
If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Ten of Pentacles, that means that you or your person have a long-term vision. It is astrologically associated with Mercury in Virgo, which represents actively working on a relationship. Although this card can mean many things in many different contexts, especially business and finances, this is one of the best cards you could wish for in a love reading. The Pentacles suit is not known to be the most romantic or passionate of suits. It is slow moving, sometimes boring, down to earth, and very realistic. However, that boring, methodical, realistic attitude is how you achieve a stable ideal life in the long run. This card is about having it all: the family, the wealth, the social standing, but it requires hard work.
