The resolution of Swords’ quest for immortality is to live on through others. The image is taken from “A Pin-Light Bent,” showing a camera-obscura-like duplication. The Ten signifies reflection – loved ones sharing parts of each other’s spirit in life, or reflecting through memories after death. It also refers to being made in someone’s image, which is not limited to creationist beliefs. We can see ourselves and our personalities as parts inherited from both our ancestors and our friends. This card is a reminder of those connections, and the understanding that they give us.
The Ten links to the “shard of mirror” of the Ace of Swords.
