Alchemical Study Group - Ten of Swords

In this card we see a man lying on the ground with ten swords thrust into his chest. A pool of blood spills out onto the ground. A book lies open in the foreground. In the background we see hills.

I think it is interesting that Place calls this card 'The Victim'. It is a reminder that the card is a sword/air card and that mental energies/thoughts play a part.

Clearly in this card there is an ending, a tragedy, and as Place says the worst has happened and now we can heal. He also says that "negativity has focused on one person".

I guess bad things do happen and we can choose to take on the role of victim and lie there taking it and then identifying who we are with the pain we have experiences, or we can move on and learn from it (maybe represented by the book) and begin a new cycle.
