RWS 10 of Pentacles - Smith and Waite

There’s a strong sense of physical security in the 10 of Pentacles.

In the Thoth Tarot, this card is called ‘wealth’. In the RWS deck, the image is filled with coin-like disks, rich textiles, and a seeming family unity. Three generations are pictured, as well as what look to be two thoroughbred hounds.

But not only is there the sense of security through physical prosperity and family/community ties, there’s actually an armed guard in the picture too.

If you haven’t noticed him (or her) before, he’s there by the archway, long spear in hand, apparently ready to defend the family inside.

In such a busy card, there’s a lot going on. Take a look yourself and see if there’s something you haven’t noticed before.
