My guiding principle is that prosperity can be shared. We can create wealth together. The global economy is not a zero-sum game.” – Julia Gillard

Spreading the Wealth

Some of the richest people in this world are the ones that share their abundance with others. In the case of loaning, this can result in an even further increase in physical assets. In the case of generosity that does not require any form of repayment, this can also result in an increased compassion for others and a deeper appreciation for people from all walks of life. How one reacts to a state of abundance may also heavily influence the image that others hold in the minds of them. Those who hoard their excess are often seen as greedy, while those who share their wealth are seen as pillars of generosity and wisdom in their respective society.

Recently, you have found yourself in a state of abundance, perhaps even so much so that you aren’t quite sure what to do with all of it. Maybe you have more money that you realistically need, or have found yourself with an excessive amount of free time. Now is the time to share these assets with others in order to help improve their overall quality of life. Look around you at those who may be struggling and reach out a helping hand. You may find that your actions begin a chain of generosity and companionship amongst a much larger group of people than you initially interacted with. 

This is your perfect opportunity to spread love and positivity, teaching others the importance of banding together and working as a team instead of only looking out for yourselves. Far too many people believe that it truly is a “dog-eat-dog world“, and easily overlook the fact that simple compassion and generosity could serve to make the world a much better place for all of us.

10 of pentacles meaning for relationship
Every person will enter into a relationship with some sort of baggage. There is no such thing as an objectively “perfect partner“; while you may find someone that meets and exceeds all of your standards, there will always be some sort of flaw that you will have to learn and adapt to. It can be frustrating to find that your ideal relationship comes with a drawback, but you must remember that you are not the only one being forced to deal with such a situation. 

Just as much as your partner isn’t perfect, you have your own personal flaws as well! By accepting this from the very beginning, you will put yourself in a better position to accept and adapt to the unique challenges that a relationship with this partner presents.

It is very common for one partner to struggle in an aspect of life where the other tends to succeed. This is the beauty of a relationship, as you are able to teach each other how to be better people overall. This may be a sign that it is time for you to share your wisdom with their partner, as they are struggling with an issue that they aren’t sure how to properly handle on their own. Perhaps they are having troubles with their family and need extra support in setting boundaries. Or maybe they are struggling with addressing past emotional traumas and need someone to support them on the road to recovery. 

Now is the time for you to offer your strength to them, even if it doesn’t seem like it will be an enjoyable experience. Life isn’t always smooth-sailing, but one of the primary purposes for romantic relationships is to face the challenges that life throws our way as a stronger team. Use this as an opportunity to show your partner how much you care for them, as you are willing to stick with them even as they fight through some of their greatest struggles.

10 of pentacles meaning for job and career
Your career has recently delivered you to the state of abundance that you’ve always dreamed of. You can more than cover your regular living expenses, and your stable finances have relieved you of the stresses that come with struggling to make ends meet. In your stability, you have had a free chance to open your mind to the struggles of others. No longer preoccupied with your own issues, you have begun to notice that those around you have many of the same worries as you. In your newfound abundance, this may be a source of guilt, even if you reached this state of being purely as a result of your own hard work.

There is nothing wrong with finding success while others are struggling. Your success should not be a source of shame or guilt, especially if you achieved it through fair and honest effort. However, this does not mean that you should turn a blind eye to those that don’t live at the same level of comfort as you. Instead, use this as an opportunity to bring others up and improve the overall quality of life of all those around you. This may mean training your coworkers to take on more complex responsibilities and giving them the opportunity to find more fulfilling work. 

Or perhaps you have a coworker that is struggling to provide for their family; reach out to them and ask if there is anything that you can do to help. By acting as a pillar of support within your work community, you will provide a more positive work experience for all parties. You may find yourself harboring new friendships with your coworkers, or even making connections that could lead you to new and interesting moments in your life.

10 of pentacles reversed main meaning
Life is full of equal and opposite energies; when we are rising to abundance, others may be falling into a state of scarcity. When The 10 of Pentacles appears in the reversed position, it may be a sign that you are transitioning out of a period of abundance and must start steeling yourself for tough times

This doesn’t need to be cause for despair and depression; you have the tools that you need to survive through this! Even so, you must be ready for the fact that you will need to adjust your way of living so as to avoid disaster. This may mean cutting back on unnecessary financial expenditures, such as eating out on a regular basis and going on frequent shopping sprees. Or perhaps this is a sign that a previous source of emotional support will soon be leaving your life. 

Stay calm and do your best to keep a level head; while this period of your life may be particularly trying, it will serve to set a foundation for future success. Instead, go into these struggles with an open mind. What can you learn from the challenges that life is about to throw your way? How can you use these lessons to become a better person?
