Traditionally, this card shows ten pentacles floating in front of a family scene with an old man petting two dogs. A couple and a child are together in the background. In this deck, the squirrel is standing next to a few acorns with a shovel in this hand intent on saving them for a rainy day.  In the distance his babies watch intently.

This is such a fun card, with so many different (but positive) meanings. First, this is the card of absolute personal security. Your life (financially, materially, and emotionally) is secure. You have a happy family and they are well cared for.

Financially, this is often known as the card of inheritance. Your hard work will leave a legacy for others. There are ties through the generations or family tradition, and you have wisely used your resources to take care of your family.
