Deck Creator’s Keywords: rock bottom, melodrama, overkill, martyrdom.
When Ten of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot appears, you are finally pushed to the bottom of the extreme. You let other people walk past you while you play the role of a victim. Could it be that you enjoy getting stabbed in the back and dramatizing so much that you cannot move forward without it? If not a dramatization, then what are you after? This is the time to find out.
A bull lies across the bottom of the card, merging into the darkness below. One sword is pierced through both of his hollow eye sockets, and nine other swords pierce his body from above. It is not subtle! And that is not exactly the most pleasing image we have come across in the deck, is it? Ten of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot, while undeniably one of the darker cards in the deck, has always made its readers appreciate the most. The Wild Unknown includes “melodrama” as one of the keywords and this seems appropriate. There are many swords that make you roll your eyes. This card can show ways that you can exaggerate situations and enter the “poor me” mentality.
A sequel is in the works between the Nine and Ten of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot. Notice that in Nine we see the eyeball without a home. And now in Ten, we see a bull with empty eye sockets. This shows how naturally we progress from anxiety to panic attacks of self-defeating. There is also a sense here that you have nowhere to go but to go up. The damage has been done, the worst is over.
Since the Swords suit is suitable for the spiritual realm, Ten of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot also suggests how you can think too much about things. We all have a tendency to sometimes make things more complicated, ridiculous, and boggy than they should be. When your thoughts become heavy, you become like a bull – suppressed by your own mind.
II. The message of Ten of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in a reading
In the Waite-Smith Tarot-based decks, this card usually shows a person lying on the ground with his face down while ten swords stab into his back. One of the person’s hands is visible and it is speculated that he is forming a trap to surrender. The sky is black but at the bottom of the card is a bit of yellow, suggesting that the darkest hour had passed. Dawn will surely come.
While some of this person’s troubles may be real, it is easy to imagine them making a startling declaration of “poor me! I do everything for everyone! And I walk uphill both ways in the snow while I do it!” This card certainly asks you to consider how you can continue the drama at work in your life.
In a reading, Ten of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot often indicates that the storm of crap has passed. You have made it through the thick of it and things can only get better from here. Instead of obsessing over how terrible things are, train yourself to seek the light. Say no to drama and martyrdom! It is fine to be realistic about your struggles, but check yourself if you are exaggerating things. Ten of Swords is also a card of destruction. When it appears, you may be about to lose something very important. The message it gives is that things can end in the most terrible and cruel way.

The reversed card indicates that you are resisting an inevitable change or end because you are not ready to face what is happening. However, the more you resist, the longer this will last, so it is time to tear the bandages (however painful it can be) and work it out so you can start over. Trust that everything is happening for a reason and although it may be difficult to understand what you are going through, know that it is leading to your personal growth and renewal in the long term.
