Ten of Swords – Hermit – Knight of Pentacles

.

LEARN TAROT BY OBSERVING

……….……….    Two of our Rider Waite Tarot cards are about focusing on something, looking at it, and being devoted to it. Hermit and Knight of Pentacles are two very different types of people. Hermit is the elderly humble servant of God, the service monk, whose focus is finding his people, bringing truth to them, and helping them. Knight of Pentacles is the very physical strongman, Mr. Macho Man, and his focus involves his self interest, and may even be obsessive. The other card makes the distinction and the difference between these two, Hermit and Knight of Pentacles, incidental: Ten of Swords is the devastating loss, the humiliation. The gist of our message today is that hitting bottom focuses us. Whoever we are.

…………………….Ten of Swords gets our attention because it lays us low. When we are overdue for a correction on our course, sure enough, ‘something’ happens. Ten of Swords represents that devastating correctional ‘something.’ In the same way that a person the spotlight is on, in our lives, is not necessarily a dominant personality, some Tarot cards just take over the spread without being major contributors to the story-line. Ten of Swords is such a card. Usually there’s drama around it.

Expect a feeling of disappointment to be the hallmark of Ten of Swords. Although it can be devastating, be ruin, be a near-death experience or a death, among today’s meanings are these lesser ones: pain, suffering, hurting, being sorry and sorry for oneself, feeling awful, ‘lay me low,’ screw-ups, powers are compromised, victim, and, mainly failure. Loss and failure are at the top of the rung in the dictionary of Ten of Swords.

…………………….Hermit represents the search, looking for and finding – investigating. It can be about the spiritual path, since a monk is in its illustration, and it is a religious – so in the same way Justice can be a lawyer and King of Swords can be enforcement (police), Hermit can be a professional religious person. It can be about a physical search, usually outdoors on roads. Another focus of Hermit is helping: He is looking for travelers to offer them a place to stay and a meal. Hermit also represents wisdom, maturity, advice (counselor, wise friend’s), and medical treatment as a healer or doctor. He is wearing what signified a doctor in his day. Hermit also means a person who come to, or who approaches, the other person: ‘He calls you. Hermit is the type of older person who has invested his time on earth wisely: maturity. Maturity is a dirty word these days.

……………………Knight of Pentacles is very physical in its intense focus; is about determination and ambition; is a strong man in his prime; represents that pig-headed stubbornness we recognize belongs disproportionately to the male gender (not just the human mammals, of course). So Knight of Pentacles represents drive. Stereotype is the stocky broad-chested muscular-armed oil field roustabout or diesel mechanic – the fellow with the assertive voice who is very outgoing and can be pugilistic,macho, or even a punk. But you like him. Usually. ‘Muscle.’ (That doesn’t mean he can’t be a hard-driving snarky lawyer or stockbroker.)

…………….……….. Hermit and Knight of Pentacles    Today, with Hermit (who is seeking and understanding and investigating) at his side (and having his back to him), Mr. Knight of Pentacles is mostly about focus and priority. ‘First things first’ is Knight of Pentacles’ slogan. Hermit and Knight of Pentacles both ‘see that.’ Observing, watching, and being focused on something belong to both of these fellows. Together they can say ‘One thing is true,’ because Hermit is the truth as well as the seeker of it. ‘Fully realize (Knight of Pentacles) the truth (Hermit)’ is also here.

…………….………. Ten of Swords and Hermit    Ten of Swords and Hermit can be a doctor focusing on pain or treating an injury. Ten of Swords and Hermit also describes understanding the downside, and even investigating a murder, because Hermit is an investigator.

…………….………… Ten of Swords and Knight of Pentacles   _Ten of Swords and Knight of Pentacles are about focusing on pain, as well as about the kind of focus suffering contributes to life.

Just as physical pain alerts me to make a change to prevent some damage, psychic pain alerts me to something being awry in my situation or in my doings. I get a queasy feeling about something, and, from past experience, know to at least consider withdrawing from whatever it is. Something smells really good; it’s good to eat … or associate with. Listening to the barometer in my gut has served as a compass that is accurate most of the time. It’s easier to forgive myself if nothing bad happens when I thought it would, than when I charge ahead in spite of the flashing red light in the back of my mind … and crash.

Ten of Swords……….Ten of Swords is a very bad day. There are some only-mildly-awful effects to Ten of Swords, some mere disappointments. What you see is: stabbed in the back, done in, the bleeding victim. Ten of Swords often translates ‘failure’ and ‘loss.’ It can be feeling humiliated, feeling very sorry or devastated, or just feeling down. It is sometimes self-pity or a martyred act (in which case, look for cards about acting a role, and/or identify cards).

BUT. Put it in the company of other heavy cards in a question about peril or danger – cards like Seven of Swords, Five of Wands, Six of Wands, Tower and Devil, to name a few – and you’ve got yourself a murder or serious injury or assault. You seldom see a convergence of really-bad cards and nothing but them. I got 14 of them when I knew my house was going to be set on fire, and my attempts to prevent it were ineffectual. Tarot validated an extreme disaster. If there are no modifying cards that negate (cancel out) or soften the bad news, watch out.

.

Hermit………….Hermit is one of those broad-spectrum cards, with elements of its illustration creating meanings that have little to do with one another. You intuitively see that a person who has searched for many years has a lot of useful and practical knowledge about life – is ‘old and wise.’ The old man is out looking for people to help, and is calmly going about that task, so the ‘helping’ theme is fairly obvious. The investigation meanings, the medical meanings, the friend meanings, the journey or road-trip meanings: Those are not apparent from the picture until you know the back story.

.

Knight of Pentacles…………Knight of Pentacles, he’s ‘got one thing on his mind,’ and his picture says that. He is physically sturdy and compact – and so is the horse he road in on. Knight of Pentacles is tough. Priority One is a good portion of his meanings. ‘Focus’ is his favorite term. Determination, drive, physical strength, and force are in the picture here. He aims to succeed at some specific priority.

  1. To Cyndi Perkins:
    Ah yes, salad dressing. Vinegar with the mother, one part; local real honey, 1/2 part, avocado or ‘real’ olive oil, 1/2 part. Pour this on first: It clings and doesn’t get down to the bottom of the bowl. (You could even spray it on.) Then you put his ‘approved’ salad dressing on top of that.
    This version doesn’t have to be refrigerated, so he need not see it in the refrigerator. If you add an egg to it, to smooth the taste, then it does – but you can always put it in another container.

    Yesterdays and today are right on and useful for me.
    Yesterday was a kind of strange emotional day, so the reading fit. I couldn’t imagine it would fit for any one else… and it didn’t seem to. (no comments any way)
    Thanks so much Emily!

    • I thought yesterday’s is ‘the way life is’ for everybody. I sure related to it, that we’re all crazy, and ‘I think my best thoughts when I’m drunk.’ Loved that part!

      To each his own.

      I notice you like the ones I do.

  3. I cringe at Ten of Swords, even when I merely regard her with her stabbing knives and implacable expression in her rainbow-striped dress in my Tarot Starter Deck as I shuffle through my beginner cards. She fell out of the deck once into my boat just after we had discovered it flooded and moldy. A bad day, yes. But now the boat is cleaner and less cluttered after a complete overhaul. Today I am taking my stubborn husband to the doctor for chronic pain complaints and a skin check because he won’t wear sunscreen and a mole is getting bigger. I am Hermit. Doctor is hermit, too. Husband is Knight of Coins. And we will be healing this pain. I love a good literal cards day, Emily! And exploring Ten of Swords helps to transmute fear into preparedness.

    • I read the blog with what you say in mind: Literal, yes.
      The site here has Ten-of-Swordsed: It’s broke, and fixing it isn’t advisable,
      because you fix one place and chaos underlying breaks forth in another. So it
      is being reborn right now. (I’m counting my coins to cover the cost of this.)

      I was at the health food story with a fellow who works for me. I watched the proprietor tell him all about these pills that quash pain in some special way.
      Blocking signals or something. She gave him samples to see if it would work for
      him. He is moving to another residence and will not be up for air until after the
      first. If you want to know about the pills, email or call me. (I don’t know what
      they are: Me and pain haven’t met yet except for blisters.)

      Ten of Swords often goes by feeling, but when a real disaster strikes, there it is –
      and not in fluffy company, either! I will never forget that dread spread when I
      asked about whether I would prevent the house from burning. Tarot said it would be
      a complete loss … and it was so right.

      But coincidences worked together and things came to a head as a result of the fire.

      • Beaming you abundance needed to carry on this wise & opulent lightwork, Emily! Thanks for health-food store pain remedy idea. He resists everything but complaining as remedy, lol, no turmeric or ginger or arnica for this man. Or yoga, Goddess forbid! Or green tea … I shall NOT go on with the list. Will find a cure he believes in is my prayer. In meantime bonded with doctor Fabio and moles are just normal thing, so yay! May the next better incarnation of your valuable site soon be set to rights. xxx

        • Milkshakes. They can be made with grapefruit juice, or aloe, or other juice – not just milk. If you put cocoa, banana, blueberry and peanut butter (or some of these) in a smoothie, it tastes like a Reese’s peanut butter cup. You can sneak all kinds of therapeutic stuff into chocolate ice cream for any size kid. You add ice cubes, and, as they are making the smoothie into ice cream, pour in chocolate syrup, which becomes grains of chocolate sand.
          You can also put all sorts of stuff in soups and stews. Even in hash browns. (I have done this for a fellow who worked for me.)
          I need that abundance! I am not designed for computer stuff: can’t find the darn place I was at to purchase something again when I lean it’s decllined. Things get declined all the time. Then I learn it’s because his country comes up as some word scramble on my bank’s equipment, so they think it’s some international fraud. IS IT JUST ME???
          Oh. You can buy chocolate bars with ginger, or blueberries, or cherries, etc. in them. I have also sneaked turmeric into melted cheddar cheese on, say, noodles mixed with artichoke noodles.
          It’s funny when you have to use the art of sabotage to PREVENT harm, isn’t it? Sometimes you need a criminal mind to do a good deed.

          • Lol, yes, latest stealth healing attack is salad dressing with ginger! Perhaps as Merc Retrograde runs its course communicatory SNAFUs will cease – while the abundance that is there for you continues to flow. I will try turmeric in the next grilled cheese

  4. This one took a while. It’s more complex.
    You who do readings: Information on the way ‘disaster cards’ function, and can be read well, is here today re Ten of Swords.
