The Ten of Pentacles in the present position represents a plateau in your life. Consider what you have recently done and what you are doing next. You may have just bought something quite significant; opening up a new chapter in your life.

Tens represent both the end and the beginning, so while this chapter is coming to a close, a new open is simultaneously opening. You may have just achieved , or are just about to achieve what you would consider a ‘life goal’. You should celebrate if this is the case!
