Greetings everyone! Today’s card is the Ten of Swords. People don’t usually like to see swords come up in a reading because they often mean that there are challenges to overcome. Today’s card is no exception; however we need to keep in mind that every card in Tarot is balanced.
The ten of swords looks pretty bad doesn’t it? A man, apparently dead, faces down with swords all around him. I do want you to notice something however; none of those swords are actually touching him! That’s because very often this card is about feeling self-pity, or playing the martyr. If there has been a lot of Poor Me going on you need to watch Bob Newharts video… JUST STOP IT!
If your complaint is genuine however and you do honestly feel like a doormat this card is telling you that you need to speak your truth. The role of victim has a tendency to cycle on and on but the only one who can put a stop to it is you!
Sometimes, this card does actually mean that you have found yourself in an intolerable situation. The positive thing however is that there is an end to it. It’s time to learn and grow from your experience. Leave the shell of your old unenlightened self behind to start again wiser for the experience.
