Ancient culture associate Magpies with excellent fortune – so it looks like you’ve got something really terrific coming into your life today. However, you may need to search a little to understand the true gift that’s being presented. Pay attention to omens, messages, the clouds, feathers, bird song – your fortune is hidden in those subtle messages. Opportunity is knocking at your door – will you answer?
Magpies are beautiful birds that hold many meanings. Magpie’s spiritual symbolism is often associated with protection, good luck, and even change.
But that hasn’t been always the case throughout history because they were known for being mischievous.
Magpie’s meaning has changed over time, and that’s because the bird is a spiritual messenger which symbolizes wisdom in many cultures around the world.
Magpies have stark black and white feathers which make for stunning-looking birds. They are noisy with an impressive vocabulary within the animal kingdom.
Magpies are also intelligent. Magpies can mimic more than 35 other birds, and even other species like horses, dogs, and people.
They are known to be very confident and are not scared of humans, they either playfully run away or continue to try and get attention.

The magpie is also a reflection of your own self because it’s believed to be a time for change and transformation.

DAILY ORACLE CARD
X. TEN OF SWORDS
Another one of the most striking and ominous cards in the deck, the Ten of Swords shows a man lying flat on the ground with his face facing the dirt. He is covered with a red cloth from the chest down to his legs. Ten long swords are stabbed into his back, he may not have seen this end coming. There is a terrible stillness in the air: the sky above him is black and cloudy indicating the fear and negativity associated with death. The waters in front of him are still, with no ripples – adding to the eerie stillness and finality of this card. Looking into the horizon, in the east, the sun is rising, and the weather seems very calm despite the darkness. The Ten of Swords seems to intimate that this is the lowest point in one’s life, and it cannot get worse than this. At least, even in this state, the sun is rising.
The Ten of Swords indicate a major disaster of some sort. It shows that a certain force of extreme magnitude has come to hit you in your life – one that you may have not foreseen. There is a sense of betrayal that is indicated here, for the character is stabbed in the back. This seems to be a reminder that despite how much we try, we cannot control everything – there are things that are beyond our ability to change. Here, this situation is unavoidable.
The tale of the suit of swords is a powerful metaphor, one that ends in tragedy. The swords are a symbol of the intellect, of intelligence and logic, and yet we find the final culmination of this suit a complete and total defeat of the spirit. We must realize that the swords are a weapon that can have immense potential for destruction or for good. The story as it unfolds from the ace to the ten is one where an untrained individual uses this weapon for faulty reasons – makes many mistakes, and then spends an entire lifetime attempting to run away from the power that he misused.
The story as it unfolds from the ace to the ten is one where an untrained individual uses this weapon for faulty reasons – makes many mistakes, and then spends an entire lifetime attempting to run away from the power that he misused.
This person believes the swords are external to him when they are part of him, and when they inevitably return, he once again suffers. His pain is not the pain of his circumstances usually, but the pain of fear, of anxiety, of not being able to be a master of his surroundings. After the hopelessness of the nine of swords, what could have happened? Were you overwhelmed by the pressure? Or did you take the final sword upon yourself and admit defeat?
The Ten of Swords depicts that situation where your mentality is ‘poor me’, you feel like there is nothing you can do. Pause and remember that as with the death card, the end of something means a new beginning. Let go of what you have lost and focus on the new path forward because that is where your life is meant to go. A good example is a break-up with your partner – though it could be intensely painful, it could also be the beginning of a new sense of independence.
