The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Ten

DEFINITIONS

Ten: Number Symbolism in Tarot: The number ten has primal, deep-seated significance for all of us. When babies are born, parents immediately do a quick count of fingers and toes. When we learn to count as children, we use our ten fingers as tools. Ten is the number of culmination, completion, and perfection. There are also ten spheres on the Kabalistic Tree of Life, and ten numbered cards in each suit of the [Tarot’s] Minor Arcana.
source: Tarot for Writers, by Corrine Kenner

Ten:

On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, ten is the number of Malkuth, the lowest sephirah on the central pillar. Therefore, ten represents the material plane, the physical location of the four elements, and mundane consciousness. One, or Kether, is the cause, and ten is the effect. The numbers two through nine are the means.
