The Ten of Swords

Written By Expert Rebecca Avoni

The number 10 is the energy of completion. The end, the finish line, the goal; all of these things are contained in this number. The Ten of Swords is the Tarot card of completed struggles, and battles that have come to a conclusion in our lives. It is time to stop fighting, says this card.

If you are inquiring about your finances, the Ten of Swords has two possible meanings. If the other cards nearby are positive, then the Ten of Swords is telling you to cease struggling; you have already won! Especially for those who work in sales, this tells you that you have already made the deal! Don’t over sell! But if the cards nearby are negative, the Ten of Swords advises that you stop fighting the inevitable. This also may mean

losses in legal matters, bankruptcy, or foreclosure on properties.

Love readings are deeply affected by this card, especially when the question is if the lover you desire will choose you or someone else. Are the cards nearby positive? Then your desired mate is headed your way! But if the cards are mostly negative, then the universe is advising you to release this person for now. They are not right for you at this time.

Always, however, Ten of Swords tells us to step back from the situation we are asking about. The universe has opened a new chapter in our lives, and we should be read to meet it with open arms.

Ask Cristina!

Hi Cristina,

I got married to a man from another country. He was going to come and live in the US with me. Then one of his friends told him a lot of negative things about American women and he got scared to come here so he told me that he wasn't coming. That broke my heart but I still love him and I wanted to make the marriage work. Then he filed for divorce without asking me for a divorce. I was in shock. I never wanted to get divorced. In his country, you can get divorced without the other person's consent. I tried to prevent the divorce and he told me he was going to stop the divorce. I also spoke to his lawyer by phone who told me that he was going to stop the divorce. At this point, I am not sure if the divorce went through or not. My husband told me that after we spoke to his lawyer, he never heard from him again. He is not even sure if we are still married or not. He was going to check with his lawyer but in his country, his lawyer didn't know for sure either. He is looking into it.

My husband told me that he regrets everything that he did to me and that he still loves me very much and he wants another chance with me. He says that he was too immature and he should have never believed what his friend told him. He says that he realizes how much he loves me and needs me and that I have always stood by him no matter what. He says that he knows he made a mistake and if we are divorced, he wants us to get married again. I love this man with all of my heart. I always have, but you can imagine that this situation has been very difficult for me. Now the one who is scared is me. I am afraid to give him another chance. I am afraid that he is going to hurt me again. Plus I have waited so long for him to be with me that I was just at the point of giving up. I am not sure how much longer I can take of us living in two different countries. I want to know if we are still married or if we are divorced and if I should give him another chance. I also want to know what his true feelings for me are and if I should allow myself to open my heart to him again. Thank you.

Blessings to you, Angie.

It is hard to maintain a long distance love affair or marriage no matter what the situation is. He is afraid of leaving the comfort of what is familiar to him. This other country he lives in is familiar, and to him, it’s home, or like home. He is torn between being with you, “his wife,” and staying where he is. I see that you are both still married, and that you should be sure of this, so you can make a decision to dissolve the marriage.

I feel you don’t really want to stay married to him because of all the uncertainty and because he doesn’t make you feel secure about his love for you. You constantly doubt his love and I cannot blame you since he is always saying one thing and doing something else. He loves you, but I fear it is not the kind of love you seek, one where he would be there for you and move mountains to be close to you.

Now this friend who told him negative things about American women, well he never experienced American women, just what he “heard” about them, not what he knows. Yet it seems your husband would rather believe his friend than experience true love and a life with you. So this here is a clue that even though he loves you in his way, it’s not the kind of love that can sustain any marriage, whether it be a long distance one or one close. Also, from what I see, his beliefs about women would make your life pretty hard if you did live with him.

I cannot tell you what to do, you must make these choices for yourself. I can just tell you that you will be better off moving on and finding someone who is more compatible to you, closer and free to really love you and share his life with you. Even though this guy says he wants to be with you and says he still loves you, I see him with his hand out. He may ask you for money if he hasn’t already…so just be aware. I highly advise you move on, because I can see that you can manifest real love into your life.

My prayers for your happiness are with you always. Love and light
