This week: Three of Swords
An ending is needed at this time. Let go. Do not hold on.
This is the classic “divorce” card. If you are asking about an unhappy relationship, the Three of Swords may indicate it is time to think of separating.
Face your pain head on. By examining it closely, you may learn from it, and more importantly, heal it. Sometimes pain can be a great teacher. Don’t shy away from the lesson that you may be learning at this time.
The Three of Swords can indicate using your pain as a source of inspiration. For example, country musicians do this all the time!
Three is a number of self-expression – this card could indicate that you need to express your disappointment, sadness, or anger. Let it out! Find a healthy outlet for release. Clear the air.
If you are thinking of confronting someone who has hurt you, by all means do, but try to ground yourself first. A good storm can clear the air but it can also tear everything down.
I often see this card as a betrayal – a knife in the heart. As advice, it could be a warning that someone shouldn’t be trusted. Shields up!
Three of Swords reversed:
Let the healing begin! I always see this card as a sign of healing work. If you have not yet begun doing so, it may also advise to begin working on your healing.
This card can also suggest mending a relationship. Forgive.
In some cases, the Three of Swords reversed may indicate a need to pull back from the drama. Create some space so that you can get an objective viewpoint.
Sometimes, this reversal can indicate a person who is refusing to deal with their pain. Perhaps they want to ignore it or maybe it’s too painful to face. As advice, this card says to face the pain – even if it feels difficult. Get support around this such as through therapy.
Questions to ponder:
How do you deal with loss? When is it best to walk away? Can you recall a time when someone really hurt you? How did you deal with that?
