THE TEN OF SWORDS: Spiral Tarot and Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

The Thoth Deck TEN OF SWORDS is called RUIN, or Lord of Ruin as Crowley names it. Here, the Sun is in Gemini, greatly diminishing the stability of the Sun. This makes it hard for the individual of this Sun sign, to concentrate upon any given subject as their tendencies are vagueness and  irresponsible, and such is the disaster promised by the Ten  of Swords.

The Angels of the Decan, are Dambayah and Menqal.
The Ten of Swords is Malkuth in Yetzirah, the Astral World.[for more information on angels, see Crowley's books:777 and Book of Thoth]

For Material things, this is the most destructive card in the deck and most people dislike seeing it in a spread; However, those who know and use the Tarot as a instrument of Divination, understand that as in Astrology, "the stars impel, they do not compel". Therefore the Tarot does not compel.

The Spiral Tarot Ten of Swords is not subtitled and it seems more focused on desperation, as the depicted figure seems desperate to reach the opposite shore.  With ten swords stuck in various places on the body, the depiction is desperate indeed!  Dark foreboding clouds above and a ray of sunshine on the water seems to indicate a dawning of a new day. Also there seems to be a good indication of "back stabbing" which is another meaning of the Ten of Swords.
.
Since, by focusing our thoughts, we have the capacity to improve our life-motion, we should do just that. Ethically this is no less moral than resigning a position when one sees that there is  a work related disaster on the horizon. What moral is broken, when one is told by the cards," that if you walk  in the street you will be struck by a motor vehicle", and that person now chooses to walk on the sidewalk instead. Divination helps us make focused choices. We should use the capacities we are given, as we are not Slaves of any destiny outside of  our own making.

However, this destiny control, requires us to "Above all things, Know thyself", and to be an Active Personality, Rather than  a reactive personality made by environment; a reactionary presence that is controlled by peers, or cultural definitions. When listening to the thoughts of such a reactionary personality, our destiny is that of Ruin, as our performance is always "after the fact". Spirit is called "fire" because it is action and the less certain doubt ridden mind of the survival animal mind, is mostly reactive.  Divination is a good way to communicate with the Higher Spiritual Mind of Yourself and thus finding the "greater action" necessary to correct the issue.

The Ten of Swords Ruin, implies, the "Horse is already out of the barn", and closing the door , as in denial, is a band-aid, not a solution. Something that our governments are slow to learn.

It's best to focus on what you are thinking, look into your consciousness and pay attention! For your thoughts create nothing other than  the motivating principle of your life. Definition or thoughts begin your movement, as Your thoughts are the operating fulcrum of your Life-motion therefore they begin your destiny!  For a fulcrum to operate efficiently, a rigid base is a necessity. Thus, as in a "personality", which is a mechanism of the Mind, if the mechanical (personality) Fulcrum (thinking) must devote most of its energy trying to hammer out a permanent way of movement (overcome negative thought), while trying to overcome the counter motion of a "wobbling base", i.e. an uncertainty of Self, the outcome for proper performance is bleak indeed. This is the message of the Ten of Swords.

Again, I cannot over state the necessity for "Above all things, know thyself"! Each of us must understand, that by thinking ill of ourselves or  of another, we only supply our body with ill thoughts that confuse our performance and ruin our destiny!

 The Divinatory meaning of the TEN OF SWORDS  in both Thoth and Spiral Tarot,is ruin, death, failure,and disaster. Since this card is in MALKUTH (Earth) it is more of a death card than Key 13-DEATH, of the Major Arcana. DEATH, key 13, is more of a situational death, a transformation, whereas, #10 Ruin, is a "personal disaster" waiting to happen. When and if this card shows up in the "house and Home" or "Beneath" you position in a Celtic Cross reading, go get a thorough physical check up from your doctor and focus on your physical and mental health. You may just need a "personality tune-up" so its time to pay attention to how you perceive yourself and the world.

However, 10's are notoriously short lived, as they are an end of a cycle, and soon a new cycle begins, So a Ten, can also mean, the pain you are going through now is on the mend, especially if you are recovering from a physical or mental injury, where your movement has suffered a "ruin", but by focused perspective, you are aiding your recovery. A ten is 1+ 0=1, which is the number of Kether, on the Tree of Life, thus a cycle of the Tree ends, and a new one "down the Tree" begins.

When the Ten of Sword is thrown during a divination, it implies:
  • Leaving a bad situation and going forward to a better future.
  • The end of a cycle of arguments and disputes.
  • Traveling to relieve stress or tension.
  • Death coming to an old way of thinking.
  • Feeling pinned down or stabbed in the back.
  • Paralysis or even back problems.
  • Acceptance and resignation as you let go of the past.
  • A new birth of hope born out of desolation and pain.
  • Healing after an illness.
  • This can be a real mega-moment and a great time if you get your act together or the final severity of force that gets your act together for you.
Thank you for your interest, support and comments. May you live long and prosper!
