The Ten of Swords



Here is the next installment in my own Tarot design project over on DeviantArt using the Miku Miku Moving program. Please let me know what you think!

Not to worry, I’ll continue to feature the series I started with in the links below.

Today we’re featuring and exploring the Ten of Swords, the tenth card of the Sword Suit in the Minor Arcana.

What This Card Means to Me

This card to me is a warning. Either I’m about to fall into a pit of despair due to my current set of actions, or I’m already in one. Regardless of the matter, I need to change my course. As long as I’m still breathing, it’s not the end of the world. It really is true that when you’ve hit the bottom the only way left is up.

The Music Playlist

In the spirit of all this, these are the songs picked out thus far for this card.

The Writing Prompt

Now as a writer with everything we’ve gone over with this card what comes to mind? Start writing! Doesn’t matter what it is. Stretch your mind and let The Ten of Swords speak to you.

I would love it if you linked or pinged back what you wrote so I could see where you went with this.

Happy writing!

    Hard to believe that I almost have the sword suit finished for this project done. I think that when it is finished, I’ll start posting the remainder of the progress updates here on my main blog.
