There is no escaping the fact that sometimes in life we get hurt. Break ups, losing your job, illness. It can hit us hard, especially when we weren’t expecting it and we lose someone or something we loved.
The Ten of Swords is the card we see when we’ve reached the bottom and there is nowhere to go but up. It is always darkest just before the dawn, and this card shows this truth with its depiction of a golden sun rising in the background. This card teaches us that we’re only a victim if we choose to be. Be the phoenix rising from the ashes in your life.
