The Meaning of
the "Ten of Swords" Tarot Card

Ruin
Walls crumble down and fall into ruin. Total failure. A time of grieving, pain and loss. Severe and devastating setbacks bring a plan to its end.

[ inverted meaning ]
A disaster avoided. The dark storm cloud on the horizon is no more. A new chance arrives.

Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position) The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:

The imagery here is not really open for interpretation of any kind but what is here - 10 swords pierce an obviously dead corpse. Stormy, black clouds loom overhead, obscuring what was previously a bright sky.

The Meaning of the Tarot Card:

This is Caesar after his assassination, any noble cause that has been destroyed. This card means death in a much more literal manner than the Major Arcana Death card, especially when taken in conjunction with other cards. A literal and not metaphorical death is coming up in the near future. Also sadness, pain, and general destruction. The appearance of this card in any spread is a red flag for total reassessment of the individual's situation.
