Tarot Contemplation – Ten of Swords


It’s time to admit that something is over.  It’s time to let it go.  Stop thinking about it.  Stop talking about it.  There’s no need to get in the last word.  Let it go and move on.  If you don’t, you’ll only be dragging out your own suffering.  Something new is awaiting you!  Create space to let it in.  It is likely that a situation has become as bad as it possibly can.  This is rock bottom.  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.  In the Aloha paradigm, we know this condition to be kauwa, feeling like the victim.  If this is you, ask yourself what you gain by feeling like this.  Is feeling sorry for yourself helping you to 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.
