Ten of Swords

Meaning of Ten of Swords

Ten of Swords is the card deepest bottom, total ruin and crush. One good thing about Ten of Swords is that that there is no worse after that. The bottom has been touched and the worst has already happened so after that there is only way out, if you survive this disaster. Of course, you will survive. It just seems to be such dreadful and exhausting experience but what didn't kill you may only makes you stronger. I don't want to say that Ten of Swords is a joke, but as it is about the swords which are related to the mind and thinking process, situation represented by Ten of Swords is often perceived worse than it really is. It is followed by heavy thoughts about the worst scenario one could imagine. It will pull out on the surface the most terrible and awful visions of the subject and face him up with his own deepest frustration. It could be a good practice to examine all these terrible thoughts and visions, trying to be logical and rational in order to find out what is causing them.

Knight of Swords

Meaning of Knight of Swords

This guy very often has really ugly personality, the one you would usually address as psycho, sociopath, insensitive dork. Who ever had and experience with this type knows what I'm talking about. One of those unemotional dorks you wouldn't feel sorry to shoot or stab, several times just in case you know he is pretty dead because they are though. Jinx like them don't want to die that easily. Of course, I don't recommend you such radical act, especially because this scum isn't worth your getting stuck in jail. But, few slaps are very recommended, just as educational measures, because he doesn't give a fuck for nice and kind words full of love and affection, just though hand and character can put up with this saucy, pert and arrogant creature. And never feel sorry if you brake his ego because he just want and need this. Thus, you may save him from bad karma if you teach him a lesson. At least his ego is so boosted and he is so arrogant, so a little harm won't brake him absolutely.

This is the principle that extreme version of anything meets its opposite extreme end, which is in this case called "iron cage of rationality".

Not rarely, they are misunderstood and their words are taken for granted and literal at the lowest level.
