The Tens are subject to the rule of the Wheel of Fortune. The Tens tend to represent the end of a cycle on a physical or emotional level. The Tens represent the maximum manifestation of the quality of the element. In other words, the ten will represent the strongest reality (maximum manifestation) of the suit’s element. Hence, if your Ten is the firey Ten of Wands, this card will bring you to your strongest place.
The Kabalistic Link – The number Ten is linked to Malkuth, The Kingdom, and Stability. This Sephirah, at the base of the pillar of equilibrium represents the entire physical world, which receives the emanations from all other Sephiroth after they have been corrected and purified in Yesod. Malkuth is divided into the four substances necessary for energy to be encased: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. Therefore, Yesod, the form-giver, depends for manifestation on the substance provided by Malkuth.
According to occult teaching, man descends involuntarily from Kether, picking up functional aspects of his personality. Each Sephirah as he descends, until he arrives at Malkuth, the kingdom of this world – the end result of the Divine pattern. Live on the earth plane is to be lived. The enjoyments, blessings and lessons are meant to be savored and learnt from. This indicates a definite stage in soul development that each must traverse and learn to control before he attempts to ascend the ladder of Sephiroth, to rest again in Kether.
