Ten of SwordsThe Ten of Swords indicates a loss and a new beginning all wrapped up in one. In a way, it’s bittersweet. You must let go of the old, even if it hurts in order to make way for the new beginning that is just beginning to hint on the horizon. No doubt there is fear in this. After all, sometimes it’s easier to hang on to the familiar, even if it’s no longer good for us. If you are resisting a change, it’s time to surrender. Admit defeat. Raise the white flag. Then, look ahead at the brightness that is beginning to emerge.
Pick yourself up, brush your shoulders off, and move forth. You may not be sure what lies ahead but one thing is for sure: it’s better than where you are at the moment. This month, trust in the future as you shed the past completely. What’s done is done and what’s coming is pure potential.
