Just how bad is the 10 of swords?
Could it just mean depression or a feeling let down/stabbed in the back?
Or is it always as 'dramatic' as it appears to be on the card?
Got it in a reading asking how tonight was going to go (going to a party)
it can mean all of those things, or even something coming to an end, with a new beginning on the horizon. Or, it can also mean that the worst is going to be over, and it can only get better from there. All depends on the context and how you feel.
