Understanding the Tarot - The Meanings of the Cards
The Suit of Cups

Ten of Swords

A person who can be the pillar of strength can still project the darkest intentions on the outside. This person may also be experiencing pain, sadness, or desolation without letting others really know.

Ten of Swords Reversed

The darkness seems to feel like it is lifting from the surface. An advantage or favor may arrive to help in the revival of the spirit of this person.
