Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 10 of Swords- Ruin & The Witches Tarot- Ten of Swords

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- 10 of Swords-Ruin & the Witches Tarot-Ten of Swords:

The Witches Tarot- Ten of Swords, shows a person, face down on the grown with ten swords stuck in their body.
With this many swords, it is a group back stabbing that is being witnessed. However, no blood, so we know this to be symbolic and not literal. The yellow clothing is the color of the element Air, which rules this dark and gloomy card. 

Obviously someone did not listen to the omens and their own intuition, as the flowering purple monkshood in the foreground warns, in the language of plants, of a deadly foe near.
The owl in the defoliated dark tree. is often a symbol for magic, occult mystery, and wisdom.

The primary meaning of this card seems to be that complying with other peoples ideas and methods, will result in ruin and pain. At all times be true to yourself, for you mustn't compromise the inner you.


The Thoth Tarot 10 OF SWORDS is called RUIN, thus, 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;  such is the disaster implied by the 10 of Swords image.
The Angels of the Decan, are Dambayah and Menqal.

The 10 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".

Since, by willfully focusing our thoughts, we have the capacity to improve our life-motion,  the 10 of swords suggests that we should do just that. Ethically this is no less moral than resigning a position when one sees that 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 personality made by divisionism and  by environment; a reactionary presence that is controlled by peers, or cultural definitions creates a destiny that is of Ruin, as our performance is always "after the fact" such as yesterdays car in today's race. We are a triad of Psyche. One would say this triad is Spirit, Mind and Body. The Spirit is the "I" that is willed, Mind is the "Am" that is "other" and beloved of Spirit and the body is the "me" of instinctual construction, and should be the loved of the I AM.However, we believe our triangle of Power, is divided, so that "Other's make us" and therefore, our destiny. This is a good belief system for justifying slavery, but has nothing to do with freedom to decide our own identity.

The 10 of Swords Ruin, implies, that the horse is already out of the barn, and closing the door 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, pay attention! For your thoughts create no others, nor their definition, as your thoughts are the operating fulcrum of your Life-motion, they create your destiny!  For a fulcrum to operate efficiently, a rigid base is a necessity (...Know thyself). Thus, as in a "personality", which is a mechanism of the Mind, if the personality- Fulcrum 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 uncertain identity 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 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 need a "personality tune-up" and its time to pay attention to how you perceive the world.
  • Bitter disappointment and pain.
  • Life is at a low point
  • Tears, grief and sadness.

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.
