The Three of Swords Tarot Card – Interpretation

When the Three swords appears in the seekers reading,  I know diplomacy is going to be necessary. The suit of swords is undoubtedly the darkest suit, and the three can be an exceptionally distressing card. I have found in many hundreds of readings that this card often symbolises the inability to move on from a relationship that has long since finished. If this card appears I know the seeker is more than likely to be obsessed with the thoughts of how their actions could have led to a different outcome. The three of swords is the definitive card of darkness before the dawn. Emotional upheaval surrounds this card and often leads to inability to move on from a painful situation. Regret and anguish must be released before the seeker can satisfactorily move into a happiest days of their life. Likewise any relationships that have reached a stalemate should be honestly reassessed, existing conflict must be faced and an honest discussion regarding the future of the relationship must be instigated.

My Relationship with Three of Swords

The Three of Swords has appeared several times in my life and has forced me to be honest with myself and come to terms with the fact that either a relationship needs serious work, or may possibly be damaged beyond repair. Dysfunctional relationships are the single most damaging experience of life. Only by accepting that a relationship has run its full course can resolution be achieved that may just turn a negative situation into a positive. The hidden meaning of this card is that one must never let the heart rule the head. If you know deep down that you are not happy, the first step is to tell those you love exactly where your needs are not being addressed. If this card appears, instinctively I know that my fears are justified, reconciliation is rarely possible when the Three of Swords appears though not completely impossible, trust your instincts.
