When the Ten of Disks appears upright in a reading, it signifies material gain, wealth, and financial security. It suggests that you have worked hard to achieve this level of success and are now enjoying the fruits of your labor. However, it also serves as a reminder that wealth is not just about accumulation, but also about how we use and distribute it.

In its reversed form, the Ten of Disks may indicate a fear of change or a reluctance to move on from a comfortable situation. It can also suggest a lack of long-term vision or planning, or a focus on short-term gains at the expense of long-term stability. It’s a call to reassess your relationship with money and material possessions.
