When upright, the Ten of Swords signals a painful yet inevitable ending to a relationship, project, or endeavor you were once a part of. This ending came as a surprise, shaking you down to your foundations. You may be the victim of someone else’s targeted attack, or you may be wearing the mantle of the victim in hopes of drawing pity and support from those around you. Break away from those mentalities as they will only encourage you to fixate on the negative. The worst has already occurred. All that’s left is to move past it and seek recovery while becoming acclimated to your new reality.
