What does the Ten of Swords mean?

May 20, 2019

RWS 2.0 Ten of SwordsHere is a pithy meaning for the Ten of Swords:
Your thoughts are killing you.

This pithy meaning is meant metaphorically (more or less), so we can also make it a little more explicit, albeit a bit less pithy:
Your negative thoughts are killing your happiness.

Here is some background information about this pithy meaning:

I recently read (in a book called Happy for No Reason) that “every day, most people have more than 45,000 negative thoughts.” These are thoughts of complaining, blaming, shaming, judging, worrying, regretting, etc. This is a big factor in blocking our happiness, so this card suggests paying attention to your thoughts for a while and see which habitual ones you should try to weed out.


Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot Book and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
