Discussion: Ten of Swords.

Greetings.
Holmes inspired this discussion on the Ten of Swords in his thread Minor Arcana. Please join in! :)

Earlier I was afraid to get this card in my readings, as I saw it meaning defeat and sorrow. It does too, in a way, but the break of dawn on the card changed my negative opinion. I kinda relate the 10S to Death: leaving old idéas and behaviors behind to start over fresh and new. It's death followed by rebirth. And as new starts often can be; it's a painful, yet neccessary, change.

When the 10S come up in readings, I interpret it as having hit rock bottom. You've come as far down you can go, and there's no other way but up. Often this does mean change, hence the relation to Death.

It can also indicate the need for admitting defeat, and the neccessety for change according to this.

Oh, have to run. Looking forward to your input!

Most folks know their ship is lost at sea. They saw it sink. But they stand at the dock waiting for it to come in anyway.
That is the essence of the ten of swords (in my book only).

In the Glastonbury tarot, the Ten of Swords is called Rebirth, which I think is a very good keyword to describe the meaning of the card. I guess that's basically what you are saying, aeonx.

To me, the Ten of Swords also implies own responsibility: you can stay on the ground with the swords sticking in your back, but you can also get up and get out of this situation. You've got a choice. 


Pollux  21 Jun 2002 
I tend to think of it as Victory.
Maybe a victory that came for me alone, probably a victory that meant shedding an old skin...
But a Victory.

I am not the one on the ground, with his back pierced...
I'm the one who wielded the last sword to his body. :)

i often see the 10 of swords, as a kind of internal tower card. usually a way of thinking, that needs to be torn down (or will be torn down), to make room for new ways of thinking. 


Kaz  21 Jun 2002 
tens indicate some sort of warning.

ChrisZ  21 Jun 2002 
I agree with pretty much all of those...To me, 10S is kinda like Death...some element of Rebirth and moving forward in some aspect...For me, 10S can also just mean a negative answer to some questions...like "Is...going to happen?"...Or just a warning...Everyone has their own prefs...

When reading for myself I usually find the 10 Swords is telling me my mind's in overload and preventing me seeing the 'light of day'.

Sort of like the Eight of Swords then? Here you are surrounded by swords, tied up and blindfolded. However, the swords don't stop you from leaving. The ropes are not so tight you can't free yourself from them, and there's nothing either that stops you from removing the blindfold.

As I've probably said above; I think you're at the end of one journey, maybe a painful one. You have reached down so far into pain that there is no other way now than up. I guess this is a kind of Victory, Pollux.

I don't quite get you here, my dear. :D
Do you mean that one refuses to admit defeat? That one is not capable of seeing reality and instead goes around with wishful thinking? It's like an alcoholic refusing to admit to the fact that he/she is an alcoholic. If they don't, they won't be able to get better. If you know what I mean... ;)

More or less, except I think the Eight of Swords is easier to escape, because, as you say, there's nothing that stops you from leaving. Also, the swords and ropes may be just in your own mind, they might not even be real, it's your own mind that's holding you a prisoner.

The Ten of Swords requires a lot of effort, but you can get away. In the Ten of Swords, the sky is dark, but there's light in the distance. The person on the ground is facing that light. He can see it, he knows it's there, but it's still far away and there's still these ten swords to get rid of. And in this case I think the swords are real, not just in his mind. But there's still the choice: the easy way (just stay there) or the hard way (fight the swords and work your way towards the light).

I generally read 10:SS as: "You have just been convicted under Murphy's Law. Resistance is futile. Anything you do or say can and will work against you. You have the right to lie there and take it until it is done with you. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Your world will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim."

10:SS reversed is slapping you and telling you to get a grip. 


lili  22 Jun 2002 
As the final pip card of the suit of swords to me, ten means conclusion or ending. This card represent the most painful point of a crisis, but it also mean that problems are coming to an end, the situation can get not worse than this and an improvement must follow, this card offer hope of an end to struggles and the chance of a brighter future. 


destinyawaitsme  24 Jun 2002 
This may be a weird thought, but it's almost midnight and those are in abundance for me..so here goes:

It's like the knight who fights King Arthur in Monty Python's Search For the Holy Grail. Despite the fact the knight had all of his limbs cut off, he still wants to fight Arthur. Ten of Swords kind of says, "Hey, it was over about 9 swords ago...maybe you should quit while your ahead."

To me it also can mean melodrama. Seriously, do you need 10 swords to kill a person? I jsut find this card a lot with people who have the "woe is me" attitude. This card can signify getting a bit too carried away. 


Umbrae  24 Jun 2002 
Ah, the Black Knight.
“Come back here, I’ll bite your kneecap!”
Think that pretty much nails it. I think of the 10 as a wake up call. It is really not a bad card.
Unless you are REALLY into denial. 


Mermaid  24 Jun 2002 
Lili has said just what I wanted to say! :D

When I look at this card in my deck, it always puts me in mind of the curtain falling on a play, or the final chapter of a book. 


Maan  24 Jun 2002 
I mostly read the ten of swords as rockbodem.
But sometimes ( take a look at the waite picture) i read it as exaggeration. Are ten sword not a little to much to kill one person?There is even one sticking in his ear......

I'm suprissed nobodey brought this up cause i believe i read this in 78DW

Starfish  24 Jun 2002 
Wow, you guys have all brought up wonderful valid points and given me a new look at what to me is one of the scariest cards in the deck (9 & 10 of swords - brrrrrr).

Oh yeah! Silly me, I just wasn't really thinking when I asked that...I guess I didn't read it very well... 


renard  24 Jun 2002 
Hi! Great discusssion!

Thought I'd throw in my two cent's worth since I recently posted a query on Your Readings about a reversed 10 sw (Universal Waite) in CC position 6 (immediate future) about a friend's health, and Napaea kindly offered much insight.

Here's the deal: My friend was finally diagnosed as having (recurrent) pneumonia after along period of feeling awful and had just begun treatment. My question was about the relation of swords to physical sickness and about what 10 sw indicated about his prognosis. While he remained undiagnosed, I had done several spreads about what was wrong, and had gotten swords galore, but not the 10. (LOTS of 2s, 5s, 7s and 9s, though!)

Okay, so now he's on medication, and so is at least temporarily getting better (reversed 10).

But what was REALLY interesting is that his doctor only found out what was wrong after he began experiencing *severe pain in his chest, back and shoulders.* 10 swords, anyone?

The cards' combination of fluidity and hard-edged (why, knife-like!)accuracy continues to blow me away.

For what it's worth -- Renard 


napaea  24 Jun 2002 
Hey Renard! We meet again!
Genius ... you freaking crack me up!!!
The Osho Zen 10 swords is so great, it's all about the rebirthing. To me it sort of says, "ok, you've been a jerk in the past. you've been emotional, paranoid, one-minded, and stubborn. Let's do something new now! You've got great things ahead of you, time to get out of your old skin and into something more comfortable"

The picture on the Zen deck is so NOT negative, for a long time i didn't even know the :T10S wasn't fabulous!

" merely a flesh wound" 


renard  24 Jun 2002 
Greetings, Napaea!

re Osho Zen: I've got to get some other decks soon. As a 8-month newbie (I should be ready to be born soon!), I've just stuck to U Waite. I should probably give my obsession room to grow.

See you back over at your awesome Past Lives Spread thread -- I've been messing with it and am fascinated. . . .

Ciao! Renard 


MeeWah  24 Jun 2002 
As with other cards, the meanings that can be attributed to 10-Swords can be varied, depending on the aspect/level.
I tend to see it as related to the mental realm first. Thoughts are things which can evenually manifest as actual physical conditions, given "enough" energy.
Aside from "denial"; "flogging a dead horse"; "the end of a (difficult) period" & other meanings, I have read 10-Swords to denote death more often than with 13-Death. More specifically, it has applied to terminal illness, foul play or suicide. Other Swords have represented illness as well. 


MeeWah  24 Jun 2002 
Renard: I suspect depression may be at the root of your friend's health. It can contribute to difficulties as well as be triggered or heightened by stressful experiences. Whilst your supportiveness of him is very helpful, he may benefit from counselling.
I find it very appropos that 10-Swords also represents his physical condition of pneumonia--I have seen it for gall bladder problem as well as for respiratory illness. 


renard  24 Jun 2002 
MeeWah --

Thank you so much for speaking from your huge experience. The subtleties of the cards seem to be endless, and every bit of testimony helps. How wonderful it is that each of us feeling our way through has access to this accumulated wisdom.

And, yes, depression is *certainly* the ultimate cause in this case. Sadly (or not) he's a therapist himself, so I don't know how receptive he'll be to advice from a layperson that he go get help (or more or better help!) But I am going to try. Actually, he has some respect, I think, for Tarot, so maybe I'll show him the cards and tell him that *everyone* agrees!

Again, grazie! Renard

Hehe, just goes to show you that sometimes crazy ideas can be the best ones. :D

This is why I love discussions about meanigns of cards. It goes to show how multi-faceted each card can be. These discussions make me laugh at those skeptics who describe tarot as vague. 


aeonx  25 Jun 2002 
MeeWah, what if you get both the 10 of Swords and Death in the same layout? :confused:

~aeonx~ 


MeeWah  25 Jun 2002 
Renard: Thank you for the compliment, but I am only a student, albeit a struggling one at times! (My goal is to learn the Qabala in relation to Tarot--a more than a lifetime feat in itself.)
You are, however, correct about the subtleties of a card being apparently infinite. The limitations are only within the conceptual perception or understanding.
Therapists are human, too; therefore, subject to the same maladies that inflict the rest of us. I have known a few, & found some of them rather resistant to the idea of needing "help". That brings to mind an ancient quote whose author I do not recall: "Physician, heal thyself!" For at least one such person of my acquaintance, it afforded him a view from the other end. It was a blessing in disguise in that it achieved what all the years of schooling could not: a compassion & an understanding for his fellow man. 


MeeWah  25 Jun 2002 
Aeonx: That would depend upon their respective positions & the other cards.
Swords can be tricky to interpret. Like all minor arcana, they provide "the details"; the storyline--refer to *conditions* which may be read on different levels. Due to those particular qualities, they need special consideration to avoid "over-reading".

I agree, the ten of swords represents the result of over thinking a situation. For me it warns of the paralysis and defeat that occurs when the worry, anguish or guilt of the nine of swords is taken to the next level.

Geenius at Wrok  26 Jun 2002 
You know, in any sort of modern tarot using imagery that would resonate with anyone from our culture, the 10 of Swords would have to depict someone crushed on the sidewalk by a falling safe, grand piano or 16-ton weight. 


MeeWah  26 Jun 2002 
Geenius: YOW! Those are every bit as graphic as the figure pierced by 10 Swords & contain the same overkill quality.
I think I see your point, but the archaic image seems to offer a different quality. & no offense intended, but the images you mention remind me of Loony Toons. (Cartoons may contribute a de-sensitizing quality in that one can consider such violent images in a dispassionate fashion.) Guess y'all can tell from where some of my associations originate :D 


Geenius at Wrok  26 Jun 2002 
The Looney Tunes vibe was intentional. :) 


kyle  27 Jun 2002 
somtimes the ten of swords to me means being stressed out tired overworked in need of rest energy loss from your chakra's 


aeonx  27 Jun 2002 
Geenius: I love your last take on the 10 of Swords! :D It's a great way to portray the card to a querent. :D

Original Destiny  03 Jul 2002 
Mmmmmmmm...the 10 of swords!!! this card represents the nadir, the lowest point in life, be it physical or mental. It is the lowest ebb...surrounding cards will tell of its intensity and if it is mental or physical...the client, being alerted to this, will react...maybe in a positive way or not...identifying this status can help. it is up to the individual how they react... Opposite to the Nadir is zenith..so...in a way the card is double edged...you might be at the bottom...but..it can only get better! use the surrounding cards to help...:TMAGE 


Dark Inquisitor  04 Jul 2002 
To me the 10 of Swords is a the card of a person who has been burdened with unbearable psychological wounds . This card is about pain , and the swords represent events that are still stuck in the psyche. This can indicate someone who is so in pain that they are emotionally crippled.Things not obvious at first glance that may be deeply buried, even to the person themselves.

It can also represent being "stabbed in the back ", or a tendency to be capable of such a thing yourself. Betrayals, major and petty, depending on the surrounding cards.

In a health reading, it can indicate back problems, & major depression.The classical meaning is a definite ending of something.

In a reading about a crime, it can depict murder or terrible violence.

Inverted, it may be saying that the person is stuck in the pain of the past, or trying to recover from the pain of the past. Apathy cannot be ruled out.

However, I was doing a reading for a very haunted house, and we suspected one of the spirits was buried on the property becaause of a dream the resident had. One of the cards that came up was the inverted 10 of Swords, which , if you look closely in the RW deck, looks like a layer of earth over a body.

There was a time when if I didn't get the 10 of Swords, Death and the Tower in a reading, even if I hid the pesky trio before I shuffled the pack, it wasn't for me.

I'm better now! :D

Kyrielle  10 Jul 2002 
The best interpretation of the 10 of Swords I've heard (I can't remember from whom) is "emotional acupuncture."

I can also see the card appearing in reference to a treatment of physical acupuncture, or the need for such a treatment, especially if your deck has a sense of humor.

In the Victoria Regina deck, the man is impaled on ten rifles. It looks really silly and makes me laugh every time I see it. Maybe our problems are not as melodramatic as we think. We need to take a good look at the situation, have a good laugh, and get someone to take those guns out of our backs...

Tarotphelia, your interpretations on this card resonate muchly for me. :)

I'm in my first week after a four day vacation over the Fourth of July weekend here in the US and this card came up as "future outcome" when I did a reading prior to my vacation. The reading looked great up until the outcome. I had a great four days off but felt a bit like a condemned criminal that would be going to the electric chair at a known time in the future. Monday morning I had the worst time dragging myself back to work. I decided that was what the cards were telling me, the monday morning blues.

I was eerily pleased to find everyone here discussing the very same card. :)

Greenelin  13 Jul 2002 
What an enjoyable thread to follow, like a lovely rambling and totally informational conversation. My turn:
Swords have to do with one's philosophy, and tens are, as an earlier respondent put it, endings. (A more precise term might be "culminations.")
Excuse my gross metaphor, but here it is: the ten is like a pimple that is just about to pop. Nothing hurts quite like that, and every single one of us keeps poking at any we happen to grow. We can't keep away from them, because we want them to resolve.
The ten of Swords seems to come up when our philosophy has run into something it can't work with. We need to adjust the philosophy. We won't do that, because commonly it means ego death, and so the damn' pimple just keeps getting sorer and sorer. When it does pop, we can move on into the next risk-taking (the Page), or we can re-affirm our belief system as correct and start over at the Ace.
Sometimes, the beliefs the ten of Swords represents are archetypal, big ugly questions lurking just below our conscious mind. That's not a 10 of Swords, it's a Judgement. Judgment is for great big painful ugly resolutions, or if reversed, for failing to make them. 


divinerguy  13 Jul 2002 
I hear people talk about their fear of the 10 of swords, just like they're afraid of the Tower and Death cards.

I think caution needs to be exercised when reading these cards, the same as with every card in the deck. They are archetypes, and are seldom intended to be literal in their meanings.

The cards have to be read in context with the other cards, and the questioned to be answered.

Assume the question to be answered is, "Should I quit my job and join the Navy?"

If you draw the swords and the Tower, some people might see the Navy as a disaster. I don't. I see the cards as describing just the opposite - its time for a change, and maybe the Navy is the best choice. Its all in context.

Hi to everyone - I am new here and first wanted to say hello to everybody on this marvellous page.

to 10s: Dion Fortune names this card the "Lord of Ruin". I agree with that: If the situation is abolutely lost, there are chnces fot starting anew and there is nothing to be lost with that try.

Lupo 


Greenelin  17 Jul 2002 
Yeah, internally the experience is one of absolute desolation, and externally that's manifest in chucking it all, or having it taken away. 


renard  18 Jul 2002 
Such a lovely thread. . . .

I can't find the exact quotation right now -- maybe someone out there has it -- but there's a Rumi poem that starts, "The way of love is not a subtle argument --/ The door thereto is devastation." Or something like that.

It reminds me of 10 swords -- the devastation before the dawn.

Mlle Lenormand  18 Jul 2002 
I too don't see this as a scary card. I see it as completion of a negative thought situation in order to experience change, which as a matter of balance will have to be more positive.

And if someone designs a Monty Python deck, I'll be the first in line for one!

Death is a major so a bit more significant and can relate to the death and rebirth of anything...to me the 10 of Swords is about letting go of an idea to which the ego is attached...a dramatic end of a cycle, a sudden coming to terms with life as it really is... 


Alex  19 Jul 2002 
As the 10s are related with the Wheel of Fortune, then the interpretation of the 10 of Swords as meaning the release or ending of a problem, after having reached the bottom rock, can be extended to include situations where there is either improvement (it can't get any worse) or a drastic resolution (death, or more of some other misery down the road).

The cards have meanings but how we judge these meanings depends on external factors, i.e., factors that don't have to do w/ the cards. For some death can be a great release, and I've known people who, for months, just prayed for that moment of absolution. For others, certain forms or "release" may represent a threat. For some others even, being freed from one's misery might represent a great threat, because some people know nothing better than live miserably as a martyr.

In itself, no card is good or bad, the 10 of Swords included. I don't see it as a card of pain, but a card of "release" from a painful situation: may be through pain, or may be even, to another source of pain.

Good for you! The most beautiful lines ever spoken in a movie, and a great example of how a word can be worth a thousand special effects.

Namaste, Renard 


jema  27 Jul 2002 
i have gotten 10 of swords twice this week for my daily card.
i see it as a warning to stop brooding so much, i need to stop being so very negative of myself. just this week i have also had several *triggers* to go back to the old patterns of self-harm and destructivness. only this time around i am aware, not in denail anymore and i have learnt to deal with it. the 10 of swords are warnings that i need to get out there and take in other things then my own "oh pity me" thoughts.
so when i drew the 10 of swords this morning i had to smile and went out to the garden to do what i love - take photos. and it helped.
so 10s is for me about depression, "woe me" attitude, self hatred and more specifically about self-injury. and getting this card is a warning for those things and a kick in my own butt to get started to do things i love, write my positives. 10 of swords are medicine.
it's all in my mind and i am in charge.
*boom chacka chacka*
(beating the crap out of depression) 


Alex  27 Jul 2002 


Oh, me too. I'm living proof, one can survive that too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I like these two, about the 10 of swords:

"The good news [about the 10 of ts] is that there is no eleven of swords!"

"I think a lot of people suffer from never reaching the 10 of swords place"

Both quotes from "Tarot and the Tree of Life", Isabel Kliegman 


Starfish  27 Jul 2002 
I have to say that I love your ideas on the 10 of Swords :T10S. I've included them in my notes. Last evening I did a Celtic Cross and received the 9 of Swords :T9S, 10 of Swords :T10S and Death :TDEAT. Even my Husband, who knows nothing about Tarot said "Wow, there's some stuff brewing, huh?".

Greenelin  27 Jul 2002 
Jema, that's a fantastic use of the Ten of Swords. Congratulations to you! 


jade  28 Jul 2002 
for me, the 10 of swords represents that the anguish, anxiety etc that i've been going thru is over...........(how much more dead can that guy by, laying there with 10 swords in him).........it's time to move forward again.

in the motherpeace this card is everyone jumping off a cliff together......giving it up and going to the next 'place'.

in light,
jade 


ming  01 Aug 2002 
my view of ten swords is acceptance that this is as bad as it gets & it's now time to face to up to it, & get things sorted out ---like coming to view your house which has been flooded or gutted by fire--the minute you see & accept how bad the damage really is, is the minute you start to plan & fight back, to sort things. 


Angeline  01 Aug 2002 
What a fantastic thread to read over!
I haven't really got much to add but just wanted to put something to appreciate such wisdom.
