The Ten of Swords Tarot Card
A card of endings. Hopes dashed. A battle lost. Things are as bad as they can get. Not particularly a warning of physical injury, though. Betrayal, false friends, or a need to be alert for enemies may be suggested. Most likely, it is time to end this struggle, take stock and move on to new things.
Since things can't get any worse, they are going to get better. Windfall profits or unexpected kindnesses may be received. However, gains and successes may be temporary. In reverse, this card means not entirely the oppposite of it's upright aspect. It may be a warning of ups and downs along the way for a time.
