Disaster is the Ten of Swords love Tarot meaning. It is a card of destruction. All is lost in a situation once the Ten of Swords makes an appearance. In fact, many Tarot readers (including myself) read it as the worst card in the pack. Conflicts, drama and emotional pain will all reach their next stage or conclusion.
When the Ten of Swords appears in your reading, relationships end in the most terrible and cruel way. You can expect to be stripped of your confidence after the fact. In fact, the Ten of Swords often pops up to represent abusive relationships.
When it comes to business, career and finance all is also lost. Poverty, bankruptcy, home repossession, and the loss of a career are all common interpretations for the Ten of Swords. Once the dust settles, you must begin a new.
In many cases the Ten of Swords can also represent ill health. The reason for this is because the card is associated with agony and pain; your anguish may be physical as well as emotional. Time spent in prison is a common interpretation of the Ten of Swords, especially if combined with The Tower. Depression and grief are common themes.
If the Ten of Swords lands in an outcome or future position of a Tarot spread, additional cards should be pulled to show you how you can begin to rebuild your life.
Ten of Swords Love Tarot Meaning
For the majority of love readings, the Ten of Swords is a very negative outcome, especially if it appears in the future. The Ten of Swords is a sign that you should abandoned the relationship and move on with your life because the road you’re on will bring you nothing but misery and depressive feelings. There are better things (and people) out there for you, you should go out and find them.
If you want to know if your ex lover is come back, the Ten of Swords can mean two things; either no they’re not coming back or they will, but nothing good will come of it. The relationship doesn’t have a future.

Your lover is feeling as though they want to end the relationship because nothing positive is coming from it. They do not see a bright future for this partnership. Perhaps they do not feel as though you are compatible.

Ten of Swords Future Tarot Meaning
This relationship does not have a positive future. Nothing good will come from this situation. As harsh as this sounds, the prospects of this partnership are non-existent.
If you pursue a relationship with this person you are just going to get hurt. In fact, I would go as far to say that this is going to be one of the hardest break-ups you will ever experience. This break-up will be soul destroying. If you’re not already in a partnership with this person, you’re best to avoid it for the sake of your future self.
