Card Meaning: Three Of Swords

Three of Swords


   This can't be good, cloudly, gloomy skies with rain and three swords piercing the heart. In this case the swords are thoughts, words that some people have spoken about something or somebody we care for, they are sorrows that are tormenting one's heart. But people must learn from sorrows, sorrows are the unlearnt lessons that we are now learning the hard way. People don't learn from joy and success.


Positive: new beginning, deeper understanding.

Negative: sorrow, discord, heartbreak, separation, confusion, betrayal, loneliness, avoiding resolution of situation, confusion.

  Three swords piercing a heart; cloud and rain behind. Divinatory Meanings: Removal, absence, delay, division, rupture, dispersion, and all that the design signifies naturally, being too simple and obvious to call for specific enumeration. Reversed: Mental alienation, error, loss, distraction, disorder, confusion.
