This never looks like a happy day card but in fact, it is necessary and not always terrible. The end of a cycle is the start of a new one and that can be a powerful transformation if we work WITH it and not against it.
Ten of Swords
The stabbiest of the stabby cards and it looks, unpleasant. But! The issues we started dealing with are now coming to their conclusions. The tens of the suits are the ends of whatever processes we are working with and also for a restart, to return to its origin in the ace to begin again. But this time we have more information, we have learned more about ourselves and what we can do and we need to carry this forward with us as we start again.
Rebirth, loss, pain, end of a cycle - these are all powerful and transformative events - they just seem a lot worse in the swords suits because of their airy, cold intellectual nature.
