Welcome back to the Card of the Day readings!

A great sadness has been weighing on you for a long time, but this card comes up today to say that this cloud of grief is finally passing. You’re emerging from this dark period and leaving it behind. Part of this is due to the positive phase that’s developing for you, and part of it is due to your conscious release of the negative emotions that you’ve held for so long. The Ten of Swords tends to signify one’s internal mindset - the way one handles adversity. Often when it appears upright in a reading, the card is suggesting not to get stuck in your misery and cling to victimhood. Instead, look tragedy in the face, acknowledge it, and then move on. Reversed, the card tells you that you’ve finally learned to do that and are now free. A new day is dawning for you. Make the most of it!
