This message is particularly apt for me right now. Sometimes life gets you down. Through the actions of others that affect you, things people say about you, unexpected circumstances such as loss of work, one, etc life just gets you down. The reverse Ten of Swords in this deck shows sometime pierced by the swords of life looking up defiantly and refusing to be defeated. This card indicates that sometimes you hit bottom, but that can give you a resolve because there’s nowhere to go from there but up! Recently I’ve hit bottom, but I refuse to be defeated. It’s time to defy the swords of life and look up!
