Ten of Cups Satiety is the state of being satiated, a surfeit.
The Ten of Cups shows that trying to maintain the happiness you have experienced already takes a lot of work and effort, as you are now discovering. Eventually things can only go so far. How much extra effort are you willing to put in. Are those you love appreciating your efforts? Or are you pretending everything is wonderful in the hope that it will go on forever.
“Satiety” is inspired by the Picatrix description.
Book of Thoth – Satiety
The Ten of Cups is called Satiety. its attribution is Mars in Pisces. The watery sign has sunk into a stagnant dream, but in it broods and breeds the violent quality of Mars, to putrefy it. As it is written: “Until a dart strike through his liver.” The pursuit of pleasure has been crowned with perfect success; and constantly it is discovered that, having got everything that one wanted, one did not want it after all; now one must pay.
