The number 10 is the energy of completion. The end, the finish line, the goal; all of these things are contained in this number. The Ten of Swords is the Tarot card of completed struggles, and battles that have come to a conclusion in our lives. It is time to stop fighting, says this card.
If you are inquiring about your finances, the Ten of Swords has two possible meanings. If the other cards nearby are positive, then the Ten of Swords is telling you to cease struggling; you have already won! Especially for those who work in sales, this tells you that you have already made the deal! Don’t over sell! But if the cards nearby are negative, the Ten of Swords advises that you stop fighting the inevitable. This also may mean losses in legal matters, bankruptcy, or foreclosure on properties.
Love readings are deeply affected by this card, especially when the question is if the lover you desire will choose you or someone else. Are the cards nearby positive? Then your desired mate is headed your way! But if the cards are mostly negative, then the universe is advising you to release this person for now. They are not right for you at this time.
Always, however, Ten of Swords tells us to step back from the situation we are asking about. The universe has opened a new chapter in our lives, and we should be read to meet it with open arms.
