Card of the Week: Ten of Cups / Penguin

Ten of Cups / Penguin from Animal Totem Tarot.

This week I drew from Animal Totem Tarot. When I pulled the card I said out loud “Awwwww…”. The card is Ten of Cups / Penguin.

A penguin family is huddled together in front of an iceberg or snow-covered mountain with ten cups in an arc above them. The two adult penguins appear content, and the young penguin standing between the two adults appears joyful with it’s wings outstretched and head held high.

Their environment is barren, but yet they appear secure and fulfilled as they stand close together. Penguins survive and thrive by being in groups. This is their source of support and protection. 

If you have been doing things solo, it may be time to consider joining with another person, group or community to continue your journey and reach the next level to happiness and fulfillment, and possibly a sense of security. Good times are anticipated this week.

“Love, trust, and support are important elements to our Penguin culture. Without them, we would end up alone or in the jaws of one of our many predators. Yet despite the many dangers we face on a regular day, the most dangerous of all is being alone when the winter winds whip into our homes. Without the love and protection of our community we would never last and our way of life would be no more.” – Message from the Penguin
