10 of Swords

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

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

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.

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Posted on Updated on

Very often, this card leaves us all feeling like a big, old UGH!, that moment when you feel like the Universe has pushed you back down, when you thought you were ready to stand on your own two feet. For some reason, I want to say play possum, in other words, pretend to be down and defeated, while all the while you are actually like “whatever”. There appears to be a reason for doing so, and this can work greatly to your advantage. Have you ever seen Paul Newman and Robert Redford in the 1973 cinema classic, ‘The Sting’? Not everything is as it seems, and it will all work out fine in the end.

Yes, it is retrograde season, and pretty much anything can happen, but there are alternative, unorthodox solutions to your issues which are being shown to you by the Universe. You may not be able to alleviate all stressful matters right at the moment, but that workaround is certainly presenting itself to you. Tackle your problems from least to greatest, and by May 22 you will see your way clear to rise up and move on to the next phase.

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Saturday, February 18, 2017

Posted on Updated on

Yesterday’s 7 of Wands saw you standing strong and defending your beliefs, position, etc. Today, as the Sun enters Pisces and you encounter yet another energy shift, you should begin to feel the stress of a particular stressful situation lifting. This eclipse season is bringing change, and where once upon a time, you may have been feeling down and out, you may finally realize that a new day is dawning on the horizon. As I always say, tackling stressful issues is helpful if done from least to greatest. This helps eliminate the overwhelming factor which so often holds people paralyzed by their problems. Know that alternative methods, unorthodox approaches may be necessary, and may also present themselves at this time.

On the flip side, one of the key words I have been discussing for this month is betrayal; I have a feeling that this has been ongoing and finally you will begin to see those swords lifting. The other word for the month is truth, and between the two, February is never a dull moment. Things are changing and developing at a rapid pace, so do not allow yourself to feel ridden with anxiety as truths are uncovered. This is all working to head in a positive direction and that is the most important thing you need to remember.

Featured Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – 78 Tarot Carnival ~ Cirque du Tarot

Posted on Updated on

fullsizerender-9

Artist: PeeMonster

Website: Peemonster.com

Keywords

Betrayal, endings and beginnings, defeat, rock bottom

Artist’s Statement

“It took me a moment to find some grounding in order to work on this card. I chose an emphasis on triumph rather than defeat…it intentionally references the crucifixion story with the way the boy is spread out in the wheel. All ten swords are in his side, yet he appears more alive than ever.”

Card Meaning

A young boy stands against the knife-thrower’s wheel, ten blades embedded in his side, giving a sense of pain and loss. This is not how the performance was supposed to end! But even when it seems that all is lost and there might be no saving the little boy, we look to his eyes, wide and full of defiance and mischief. All is not as it seems, and this is not the end. The wounds are not fatal and both throwing master and assistance must re-evaluate what occurred to move forward and improve.

This card represents an unexpected defeat, but rather than warning against it, it prepares you for this loss, advising you that at your darkest hour, there is still hope. When you reach your lowest point, the only way to go is up, if you you can drag yourself high enough to see it.

Rock bottom, defeat, ending, betrayed

Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning

” A pirate captain has been betrayed by his crew. He managed to make it to shore. Is he dead? Is he dying? He is so full of woe. This is the worst it ever could be. Nothing could be worse than having ten swords in your back.

Things aren’t as bad as they seem, though. Off in the distance, peeking from behind the mountains, is the sun. It is coming to light the dark sky. There is hope after all. You just have to wait for the light.”

A pirate stands defeated, betrayed and injured by those he called his comrades. Head bowed, he is draped in a cloak that is red with his own blood – the pain and sadness in this crest-fallen soul is clear to see. The sky is dark and foreboding; perhaps he should have seen this coming. But beyond the mountains, dawn is breaking, bringing with it the light of a new day, and the sea behind the pirate is calm.

This card represents an end, a hard and painful one – one sword could have killed this pirate, let alone ten. The pain screams victimization, deliberate cruelty, but it is over now. Light brings a new dawn to chase away our darkest time, and with every loss comes a new beginning. This card tells us “The only way is up”.

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Full Moon blessings, everyone! Today is our annual Full Moon Supermoon in Gemini.  Over the past week,  we have been discussing the energies which may be jabbing at you, stressing you out, or leaving you feeling betrayed by the Universe. 

Picture if you will, to the left of this card, a balloon, and then take that straight pin and go ahead and pop it. That is what getting to the other side of this Full Moon in Gemini is going to feel like. So let off that stress and prepare for smoother sailing on the other side of this as you approach years end.

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Sunday, August 21, 2016

Posted on Updated on

This has to be the best 10 of Swords I have ever seen, and so timely for so many. What has been stressing you out? Look at this card; remember our 10 of Swords guy who finally washed up on the beach at the end of May? Just look at him now. He is upright on his own two feet and walking away!

The time has come to put something which has felt stressful in a major way behind you. It is amazing how much you have changed over this past year. As you continue to work your way forward, your growth as an individual is astounding. It will be many, many years, if ever, that you will experience so much hardship in your life again. You are now better prepared to continue on down your new path and see where it leads. Should you encounter a stressful situation, it will be much easier to conquer.

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Recently, each time we have seen this card it has represented some form of progress. I love this depiction from one of my favorite decks, The Tarot of the 78 Doors. Here we see our stressed out guy find a source of relief. Now, this relief can come through nontraditional methods, as shown here, but what is important to remember, is that the stress does not all disappear in one visit.

That is the thing about stress, when it is overwhelming, no one truly seems to be good at pinpointing one area at a time to work on it, but that is how it needs to be tackled. By remedying one situation at a time, and starting with the easiest first, by the time you reach the most difficult, it is not so daunting. By clearing away all of your other stressors, you will ultimately have no problem tackling what knocked you down in the first place.

See you here tomorrow!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Why does everyone always try to run and hide from this card? I really had to search to come up with this image in order to convey my message. First, put your hand over the person; what do you see? The Sun!! Now, for many of you it has actually been 10 months of stress trying to figure out how to move away from the issues in your life. This would make a great card to follow a 6 of Swords, with our guy here washed up on the beach, finally making it to the shore.

So, let us think about it. Here you are, the end of May. Yes! Tomorrow is June! Truly, you have been through the hardest part and the stress will begin to lift. So, time to pick yourself up, dry yourself off, and be ready for whatever is to come!

See you here tomorrow!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Monday, October 5, 2015

Posted on Updated on

Time to start removing those swords! One by one. It has gone on so long, whatever it is, that it would appear to have taken it’s toll. But, it has not! If you are reading this, then you have survived your life up to this moment, even though you didn’t think you could. 

You are about to embark on a new leg of your journey. All this stress, and all these lessons, will hopefully never be repeated again. Have you been paying attention? The universe wants to prepare you for a new life that you haven’t even imagined. Or have you? Perhaps once upon a time there was a dream that fell by the wayside. Now you are being redirected in order  to put you back on course for happiness. 

See you here tomorrow!
