Card Of The Month: July 2019, 10 Of Swords

Da Da Da! Drama! That is the 10 of swords for you. Not what I expected to pull out for July 2019.
This can be seen as a woe is me card, making mountains out of mole hills and yes the situation might be bad but it should not turn into a melodrama.

Usually the worst of the situation is over and then you get back on your feet again. Once you hit the bottom you cannot go down any further.  Looking at the swords here they seem excessively long which itself says exaggeration and 10 swords instead of one is a tad over the top. Unless it is multiple issues that happen all at the same time. That can happen, speaking from experience  of having several crisis hit my family at the one time on several occasions, but we get over it and move on.

Notice the man is signaling with his right hand, holding two fingers up. Does that signify peace? According to some it is actually a Benedictine symbol for a blessing and peace at last. However all is not as it seems at face value. The cards are many things to many people and symbols have various massages.

Churchill doing the same hand sign, Vau, or the Jewish symbol for number 6. Click on the photo and read the comment. From my understanding though 6 is a feminine number, but as I said its a duality that we live in so everything is inverted.  (duality is one of the things in our world, there are positive and negative meaning attached to many symbols) Churchill was deeply into the occult and was a Druid but not in the normal sense.

Starting with the four elements being balanced in the card, earth, air, fire  and water. The sun represents fire. This is the sun rising in the east, the dawning of a new day. Which is always a positive omen.
There is the ocean in front of the man, representing the element of water. This alludes to consciousness, thought, emotions etc.

The ground that he is lying on and the mountain vista represent the element of earth. The sky and clouds therefore represent the element air.

The colour black for the sky may seem negative however the night s passing into day with the sunrise, which is a positive omen.

Yellow is a positive and uplifting colour, which can mean enlightenment, protection, clarity, creation.

Red is fire and passion, blood, anger,

The number ten, This is the number one energy vibration with the zero being the god force or energy intensifier to give the number proceeding the zero its intensifying power.
In this case the number one.

One is for originality, beginnings, penetration (getting straight to the point), action on a physical and mental level. If you like the zero can also act as the egg or ovum that gives birth to the one, as in creation. So the card number is positive and empowering, transforming the energy from a negative one to a positive one. A rebirth in the situation one is facing at present, so stay positive and hope for a better outcome to your situation, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, as sure as day follows night.

So the basic message for all of us here is to chill and not stress out over what is happening at present, all will work out in the end.

Many people are unaware that the RWS Tarot deck contains elements of  Greek, Egyptian and Roman mythology, Astrology, Kabbalah (which is Satanic, yes you heard that right and anyone that denies that either does not know what they are talking about or is in denial) Numerology and other symbology such as Freemason/Rosicrucian  symbology and psychology. It is a very interesting subject of study as a subject on its own.

Did you know Arthur Waite was a professor? Neither did I until writing this post.

The Fool in the Fool tarot card is holding a white rose as is the grim reaper in the death card (number 13) The three of pentacles has a white rose in the stonework of the archway.
The magician card(number 1) has a red rose. both of these roses are significant they represent the royal houses of upper and lower Egypt Red is for lower Egypt and white for upper Egypt. Then these colours symbolically appear for the house  of York (white rose) and the house of Lancaster (Red rose) died out.
 Interesting bits of history well worth knowing when relating it to the RWS Tarot cards, there is so much history in these cards that could take a lifetime to learn and then astrology which definitely is a life time in learning.
