In this card; a family consisting of a mother, a father and their two children is illustrated. The kids are dancing merrily, and the couple is physically united as well. Their house is visible in the distance, surrounded by trees and on the coast of a river. Over them, ten cups are arranged on a rainbow, crowning their harmony and happiness.
The couple represents the bond of love; and the children imply that the bond is not abstract; through the balance and alignment it provides; one is adorned with the competence to create. The home symbioses the security, comfort, and stability, whereas the river, denotes that the harmony is not inert but rather dynamical; it is reached by an uninhibited flow of emotions. The trees around the home symbolize abundance and fertility. The cups aloft also symbolize abundance, evocated by the harmony and alignment of the happy nuclear family.
