Featured Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Defeat, betrayal, loss

Artist Interpretation

The swords in the little monster’s back indicate betrayal or loss. He has unexpectedly been attacked from behind without any warning, falling to his knees in defeat. It has been a difficult experience, but the sun rises in the background creating a new beginning and the little monster knows it is time for release of old pain and rebirth of his new self. He is accepting the circumstances in order to grow and move forward. He has begun meditating, thinking of hope, knowing that things will get better. He will learn from his past. His spirit guide sends new energy to him as the paper boat carries away the weight of the past.

Card Meaning

You’ve hit rock bottom, and the only way is up. This is a time of hardship, of loss, even betrayal. You can’t change it, but you have time to prepare, and need to keep hope and faith.
