Ten of Swords
Ten of Swords

The Ten of Swords is the tenth card in the suit of Swords.  This card is not very positive.  It shows a man that is on the ground and has ten swords in his back.  This card is seen as destructive and dark, but you have to consider the whole reading in order to interpret it.

The Ten of Swords shows failure and being hopeless.


The past of the Ten of Swords shows that you have to relate to your past even when things went wrong.  There was a time you were completely at the bottom and there were experiences learned from this that helped you grow.  This led you to understand that you cannot keep making the same mistakes.  The past can still come back to upset you and so the bad memories need to be seen as lessons, so you don’t make the same mistakes.


The present of the Ten of Swords shows that you are going to have something important to you come to an end.  This will change your life completely and is something that you do not want to happen to you.  Prepare that this will happen so that you can face it.  It will not be good to hear but remember that life is not always easy and bad events can appear without a warning.  Be strong in your mind.


The future of the Ten of Swords shows that you are on a path in life that will lead you to be destroyed.  You have to evaluate what is going on with you and make drastic changes in your life if you want to reach your goals.  You will have things affect you and those close to you, so you need to consider them when you make your choices.  You have a chance to change your life if you don’t like the direction you are going.


The work with the Ten of Swords shows that you are doing things that will come to an end.  When this happens, you will not expect the sudden change.  This could be a firing or changing jobs.  You will need to brace for this to happen to you.  If you are thinking about leaving, it will not go smooth like you hoped.


The love of the Ten of Swords shows that you are in a situation that will end soon.  This is not a good card for love, and you need to plan on being alone for a while.  If the relationship is not working out, why be in it anyways?  If you are single, don’t expect to find love right now.  If you are looking and you do find love, don’t rush into it because it might not be what you really want.


The friendship of the Ten of Swords shows that you will have small arguments that will cause your friends to erupt.  You will see that things will come to an end and people will leave.  You cannot avoid this.  You can prepare so that you can handle the pain.


The finances of the Ten of Swords show that you have to brace yourself for what is coming.  You don’t want to have trust in someone that you know won’t give 100 percent.  If you are expecting money soon, stop looking for it.  You need to be careful in the future with money.


The Ten of Swords card is a bad card for your health.  Expect your health to be down and you having issues in your life.  You thought they were worked out, but they aren’t and things might be worse than you thought they were.


The spiritual part of the Ten of Swords shows you that you have to break free from your bonds.  If you are in religion practices and you are unhappy, find new ones.


The ten represents trials that you have reached and a place of lowness in your life.  You can expect terrible things with this number but then you will recover.  If life gets bad, start improving in it.  Expect things to be hard for a while and they will not be easy tasks, but you will get through them.  When you feel like giving up, keep pushing.


The ten is a special number and can mean completion but it can also mean 1 which is a higher level.  Tens are the end of a cycle and the start of a new cycle.  The Ten of Swords is not positive, but it can mean that you have a time of hopelessness that is coming to an end.  Start the next cycle so that you can have a new chapter in your life.  IF you don’t feel good, don’t take it to mean that things are going to be bad, remember that the universe is not permanent when there is hardships.
