You’re a free agent and you probably haven’t been for a long time – a very long time. So now you have at least one major decision to make.
The Wheel Of Fortune is exactly that. The giant all-knowing all-seeing SkyHand of the Tarot reaches out of the clouds to turn the Wheel, and sometimes we’re on the top like this King and Queen riding high in April on Morgan-Greer card, or replaced and tossed into the gutter in May, like the poor human we see falling off. He had his ‘turn’, now it’s someone elses’ turn and then it will be someone elses’. But this card is in the past position, and if we have to see it at all, is certainly the best place for it.
The card in the present position is also reversed. It is possible years of excess have taken their toll. The dramatic and bloody 10 of Swords (Libra/Gemini/Aquarius) shows us a dead human (I’m no doctor) laying face down on a desolate beach under a black starry sky with 10 long swords stuck in his or her back bleeding out all over the place. This person has suffered a lot, possibly their whole life (depending on how old you are, of course, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we were talking decades). Those swords were backstabbed in to him or her one at a time over a long period of time. This lovely card is nicknamed ‘The Lord Of Ruin’ and Swords being Swords, our thoughts have been dark and negative and downright painful. This hasn’t happened overnight, and although like the 8, this could be and often is a ‘victim’ card but today this is not about self-victimization, drama queens and theatrics. This is #10, the maximum of the suit, and more ‘slings and arrows’ than a human should take, and frankly it’s a miracle they didn’t off themselves or completely lose their sanity altogether but they didn’t, because the card is reversed, and those Swords are starting to fall out. We are no longer ‘pinned down’ like a butterfly on display. How morbid an image.
This is like being released from a bad contract. In the Future position we have Justice, who has a firm grip on her own Sword, and knows how to use it. Scales in her left, she making things right.
2 10’s: major endings, new beginnings, phases. Nothing trivial, this is the rest of your life. The maximum of the suit. The worst is over, things will never be that bad again. Things are finally put right in any legal or court or money matters, because Justice lives for that shit. This is a divorce that took forever, possibly preventing a wedding that has been wanting to happen forever, or finally being a free agent, settling up and moving on, which of course requires us now to decide what to do next, but we are finally now finally able to clearly and logically weigh all future options.
Dressed in passionate red against a screaming yellow background, her lips are sealed, but against the darkening blue sky of the ill-aspected Wheel of Fortune and the blacker than black darkest before the dawn if it ever comes 10 of Swords, she’s easily the loudest.
She goes all the way up to #11.
10 + 10 + 11 = 3+ 1 = 4 = stability. No more ups and downs.
