Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 10 of Swords: Ruin & The Jungian Tarot- 10 of Swords: Gain through Partnership

The Tarot of EliAs you may have gleaned from previous blogs, the number 10 is the culmination of the unmitigated energy of the idea. In this case its "all Mental" and shows reason run mad; as Crowley put it in his Book Of Thoth, the 10 of Swords represents: " A ramshackle riot of soulless mechanism. It represents the logic of philosophers and lunatics and for the most part, it is reason divorced from reality".
For example: The philosopher says,"Thou shalt not kill" which is divorced from reality. Reality states that we must kill (even vegetation) to eat and a Mother and Father must sometimes kill to protect the family, for without family---there is no future! So the
statement "thous shalt not kill", should say, "Thou should not murder for the visions of ambition, ( of Politicians and theologians etc.) be they personal or governmental". For any man and woman worth their salt, will kill to protect their family and to eat! That is expected in this Natural Universe where "life eats itself to stay alive"! Therefore there is a fine line between philosopher and lunatic; between genus and insanity.

In the philosophy of the Hermetic Qabalah Thoth- Ten's, in every suit, represent Malkuth-Kingdom- which is the lowest Sephira on the Tree of Life; lowest as in position, not in value.

Malkuth is the Earth, the sacred physical world, and the Ten of Swords, represents the unadulterated energy of mind, confined to the lowest microwave frequency-(most condensed) consciousness on earth, i.e. Psycho (mind) confined in Soma (body).
 
The animal survival-predatory brain, is indeed the Ruin of all Hu-man thought. Hu-is Mandarin for "god" and Man, comes from the Hindu-Manas, meaning "Mind", hence the survival mind interferes with Image-making, and/or Imagination, the creative god-mind, by imagining its fears of being preyed on. Here the survival ego, is ruining all mental progress with ruinous thought based on fears of discomfort and death.




The heart, which also represents the Higher Thought of the Psyche (Soul) is pierced and in ruins as well, dampening down, weakening, and corrupting the creative impulse. The Ten of Swords, therefore, consuls the personality to purge the brain of unworthy thoughts and ideas, that corral the creative impulse so that it putrefies into malice.

The Ten of Swords, is rampant mental chaos because it also ruled by the Sun in Gemini, this makes the mercurial nature of the Sun diffused, and scattered which disrupts the harmonious nature of energy.  Where once there was a laser, there now is a light bulb; Light bulbs scatter energy in a soft diffused light, while lasers focus one powerful beam of light on one place at a time giving one the ability to do work...well

The Thoth display of the Ten swords are interesting in that hilts are shown in the form of the Sephiroth,while the points (1-5 and 7-9) shatter the central sword (number 6). Six is Tiphareth, the Central Sun, The Heart of the Christ; child of Chokma- Binah. This implies the ruin of intellect and even of all mental and moral qualities. Hence the 10 of Swords is a Death card, more so than the Key 13-Death card, as that card is mostly about personality death/spiritual transformation. This card represents  a very negative mind set, that must be changed for any further growth in character. This is total "Lizard brain"  fantasy based on fear of pain that makes one strike out before any reason to do so is presented and/or manifest a crippling pain in the body itself!

Therefore the Ten of Swords is representative of the Psychosomatic power that the mind has over matter. If your thoughts are scattered among great emotional fears, your body will become a riot of disease and dysfunction. Chaos in the mind, is ruin in the body! The mind quieting benefits of meditation, should be apparent here!
Therefore the Tens  of Thoth Tarot are where the formative-elastic world ends and the absolute solidification of form is established and are attributed to Malkuth (Kingdom). This is as solid as thought gets! It helps to remember that Psycho is mind, and Soma, the parts of an organism other than the reproductive cells,
is flesh. Psychosomatic, means; Thought becomes Material flesh!

The Ten of Swords is called RUIN and in the world of Malkuth, the 10th Sephira--Ruin is death of a thing. In fact, as stated before, the Ten of Swords is more representative of the physical death  than the Death Card (key 13) of the Major Arcana. Key 13 depicts a death of perspective, a personality death that is necessary for change rather than a physical one.The Ten of Swords bespeaks a lesson that if one goes on fighting long enough---all ends in destruction. As our bodies prove by fighting gravity all their lives until they age from the strain and end up back in the Earth they resist or when white blood cells run rampant in the body, and begins catastrophically destroying it's own cells. But there is a bright side to this card, as there is a bright side to death and that is, that from ruin rises new construction!
The Jungian 10 of Swords: Gain Through Partnership, seems to be about the mirror image of ruin. Whereas, there was once chaos, there is now cooperation.
Here is represented, the success that results from people/thoughts working smoothly together, either in partnership or some other type of association.
Here, opposites, such as a young and old partner, work together complimenting the talents of each other by contributing exactly what the other lacks.
There may be hard work and long hours, but the return on the invested time and labor bring strong profits.
 In terms of family, home and marriage, this card represents prosperity, and lack of problems. As depicted by the white fluffy clouds in a blue sky supporting perfectly ordered swords.

If ill defined, there is the return of chaos. Partners begin to disagree and challenge each other's decisions. Disloyalty, bad feelings, and serious misunderstandings begin to appear. This is suggested by the Dark clouds on top of the card.


When the Ten of Swords is thrown, the querent is experiencing or will be experiencing:
  • In a period of 10 weeks or 10 months, Cruelty and Malice towards others.
  • A feeling of Ruin, because of a oppressive feeling of over-bearing strength applied to selfish ends.
  • Revenge, injustice, ill-will, lying etc.  
  • Maybe a death in the family.
  • A life threatening illness, either mental or physical.
For the querent, the Ten of Swords is almost a worst symbol than the 9 of Swords.
  • It is about death, ruin and failure, all because of the lower thoughts of the lizard/survival mind of fear based thought, misdirecting the tremendous power of the Psyche (Sun) which can only be directed by a Higher State of Mind, i.e. the Human Soul, that is based on Love rather than fear.
  • There is disaster, because of the undisciplined warring force unleashed by fear-based thinking which self destructs in the mayhem created by an army of unbalanced ideas.
  •  With the lower mind being over-power by the Fiery E-motion (Will to Force) of the Solar Soul, ruin of all plans and projects is common place, as well as, disdain, insolence and impertinence are common expressions.
  • There is often a misplaced display of mirth as one overthrows the happiness of others.
  • The querent will find that their brain is a repeater of things that have never worked in the past, and won't now.
  • The brain will often repeat many impoverished words, such as "swear words", but doing so cleverly, and eloquently, in order to hasten the character assignation of others.
  • This card alone, is ill-dignified;
  • However, if the accompanying cards are all well dignified: this is a  1 week or 1 month card of indignity, and the personality is well aware of the need for a change in perspective.
  • The querent maybe tired of nonsense programming and is seeking away to fix it. The rest of the cards in the reading will show the querent how to get out from under the tyranny of fear based thought, and accelerate away from the lower thought processes. Here, the wisdom and intuition of the Tarot reader comes into play and aid is easily given.
  • Generosity, self-sacrifice, and even disinterestedness on the querent's part are implied.
  • Just the fact that the querent acknowledges this mind set, will begin the process of changing it.
  • Recovery from a life threatening illness.
