Tens in cartomancy can represent luck,success, or stress and trying times. The tens can have several different meanings in cartomancy. Tens can speak loud in a reading. They can speak of moving forward with happiness, or they can speak of tears in a reading. Lets have a look at some of the basic meanings of tens.
Ten of Hearts: happiness, good luck in domestic affairs
Ten of Diamonds: possible job offer, business success, increase in financial matters
Ten of Clubs: inheritance, possible travel
Ten of Spades: unwelcome news
two tens: moving forward
three tens: new ventures
four tens: success
ten of hearts with a diamond, and a club: wealth
ten of hearts with the ace of diamonds: marriage is possible
Sometimes people can put more emphasis of a numerological meaning into a card. Tens can represent completion, and renewal. Tens can also represent the number one (1+0=1). If a ten represents the number one, and you are looking at cartomancy from the numerology standpoint, then one represents an ace and a ten represents what an ace does, but on a higher level. Did you see a connection when reading the card meanings?
Tens speak of luck, and they speak of the beginning of a new cycle. When reading the ten as a future card, you are usually reading of great happiness. Well, unless it is the unlucky ten of spades, then usually the ten of spades is usually only a temporary bad luck card. More times than not, if you have any bad luck, it just means better luck is right around the corner waiting for you.
A ten can speak of a storm before the rainbow, or the rainbow after the storm. Whatever the case may be, life has cycles. We all go through ups and downs. When you are reading the ten, just think of it as one of life's cycles. It will be at a real good point, or a not so good point. However, always remember that after one cycle, another follows. For example, if a person has the ten of spades in a reading, the luck may not be so great at the moment, but it's going to change.
On another token,the person that gets a ten of hearts is a very lucky person. The ten of hearts is great happiness in domestic affairs. This card can mean wealth with love. It is a very pleasant card to arrive in a reading. Strong family connections, bonds, and love.
The ten of diamonds can actually mean someone may strike it rich. Remember, it depends on the layout, and the cards around this card, but it is still a delight to have in a reading.
The ten of clubs is wonderful for social activity. Celebration's, and friendships, possible travel, and or an inheritance can be present when reading this card.
Just rest assured, whoever receives a ten in their reading is one lucky camper. The ten in cartomancy is a great card to have!

Your intuitive instincts also plays a role in cartomancy. If I read your cards, my methood would determine that you are about to come into a windfall because of a widow ( tens, and queen).
However, since you are needing clairity, the only thing I can say for certain. Is every person that shuffles the deck has different meanings for the cards they pull out.
What your intuition, or learning has given you about that queen of spades could be different than what mine gives me.
I am not certain if you learned cartomancy from me, or someone else. What I am certain of is that the cards speak to you according to the card language that you already did know.
For example, if when you started reading, you believed 4 tens meant a windfall, then this is what they are telling you. Whereas others may believe that 4 tens means a major move.
I hope I am making sense to you.
