Three of Swords - Tarot Card Meanings

Keywords:  sorrow, heartbreak, separation, loss, disappointment, ending, divorce, hurt, pain, heart trouble, depression

General meaning:  Sadness and heartbreak.  The big time let down.  Breaking up is hard to do.  Tears will flow.  Deep wound.  When this card shows up in a reading, it’s a sign that things may be turning sideways.  Strong emotions, namely depression, sorrow, or anger.  The Three of Swords is one of the strongest indicators of divorce or a relationship ending.  Getting dumped.  Betrayal.  Surgery.  Back stabbing, triflin’ behavior.  Hurt feelings.

Reversed:  Healing the hurt.  Recovery. Letting go after a major disappointment or loss.  The storm is parting and the silver lining arrives.  The dark cloud lifts.  A new outlook.  Attitude adjustment.  The end of a hard, emotional period.  Reconciliation.  Physical healing.  Apologizing.

Affirmation:  I can use my pain as a tool for growth.

Theme song: “Un-Break My Heart” by Toni Braxton

Journaling prompt:  When have you been deeply hurt?  How have you hurt others?  Write about hurt – both being hurt and causing hurt.
