The Buddha asks, “What is happiness?” The Ten of Cups, upright, is typically the picture of the ultimate happiness of civilization. A husband and wife with dancing son and daughter look off to their house in the distance in a fertile landscape of green hills and blue streams. Overhead a rainbow of ten sparkling illuminated golden cups blesses them as a sign of good fortune.
The reversal here asks you to consider what “happily ever after” means to you? How do you determine the happy family, rainbows and abundantly good fortune? Are they in your life? Family is community. We are not only talking about blood relatives. Wouldn’t you want to be a part of a family that loves and respects you for the person you are? Open your heart and reconnect with your family. Even if you have to build it.
