Ten of Swords


Ten of Swords - Upright



  • Betrayal, backstabbing, slander, endings, loss, defeat





The Ten of Swords is a card of sudden change and suggests that you all soon experience an unexpected event that will resort in disaster. This event will be caused by an external force that will be completely out of your control. This disaster will cause you to feel powerless to its advances and useless. The Ten of Swords suggests that, although you may be able to soften its blow, it is more likely that you will just have to stand by and take the brunt of it. Take this event on board and think of it as a learning curve. Don't let it have a negative effect on you, instead, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get on with your life.

The Ten of Swords reminds us that sometimes things must end in order for something new to begin. From this experience you will grow a new sense of awareness of the things around, so you must look at it as a learning curve. Don't dwell on the negativity it could bring into your life. Instead, when it's over, you must pick yourself up, dust yourself off and move on with your life. Grow from this experience,. Think of it as a new chapter in your journey, what will come next will be a whole new adventure. This is a card of hope and recantation, much like tower card. You must rise from your own ashes and transform.


Ten of Swords - Reversed



  • Depression, regeneration, negative thoughts, trouble, recovery, endings





The Ten of Swords in reversed form suggests that you will soon experience a painful ending which, in time, will give you room to grow and transform into a better person. This ending must occur and there will be nothing you can do about it, you will not be able to resist it or alter its course. This event will make you re-evaluate your life and your approach to it and it will eventually motivate you to make the appropriate changes in your life in order to improve your chances of success in the future.

The Ten of Swords in a reversed position could also indicate that you are fearful of change and the disasters and negative effects that it could bring into your life. This fear haunts you and because of that, you are attracting it and allowing it to appear in your life. You are always thinking that the worst will happen and then, when it does, you wonder why. The reversed Ten of Swords reminds you that change is not always bad and can most often be beneficial to you. Instead of worrying about change, embrace it and look forward to it, you might open a brand new door full of opportunities.
