The Incidental Tarot - "A posse ad esse"  From possibility to actuality

Ten of Oaks

A great wooden door is adorned with oak leaves and a golden acorn set upon its knocker. The Ten of Oaks signifies a great material accomplishment; the buying of a house, a well-deserved promotion (or retirement) or the payoff of a long-term investment. This card indicates prosperity, the completion of a major phase of life’s work, and a sense of liberation from material concerns. This could represent children growing up and moving out of the house, or contrarily a reunion of long-lost family members or friends. Overall, the Ten of Oaks assumes a sense of completion and wholeness, a return to the most primal sense of self, grounded, fulfilled and ready to begin a new phase of life.

Reversed: The dissolution of a long-term endeavor, loss or alienation of family ties, financial insolvency. The Ten of Oaks reversed indicates an uncomfortable ending without resolution, or positive affirmation of what is to come next.
