When the 10 of Swords appears, it is likely that the situation has become as bad as it possibly can. This is rock bottom and enough is enough. There is nowhere to go but up. This card represents someone who has a great amount of self-pity, who feels like a martyr — like they’ve made huge sacrifices for others and received nothing in return. If this is you, ask yourself what you gain by feeling like this. Is feeling sorry for yourself helping you move forward? If not, pick yourself up and get on with life. Take the lessons you’ve learned with you so you don’t make the same mistakes again.
