Understanding the Three of Swords in a love tarot reading.
In a love tarot reading, the Three of Swords tarot card can indicate a broken heart, separations, and pain associated to loss. When it appears in a tarot reading, particularly in those that focus on love, the Three of Swords can serve as a warning. It can be a sign that the relationship you are in can potentially be hurtful. For those who are single or have just broken up with someone, it can often indicate that your past relationship has yet to be fully processed and healed.
Traditionally, the Three of Swords tarot card is the card of grief and mourning. Its appearance in a tarot card reading can indicate a period of upheaval and emotional turmoil. It is often a sign that one must experience an emotional catharsis. It suggests that the time has come to let yourself fully experience your feelings. The Three of Swords typically refers to a separation of some kind. If you have been in an unhappy or unhealthy relationship, it may be time to cut your ties.
In love tarot readings, a common theme that often corresponds to the Three of Swords is the concept of abandonment. In this regard, it’s really important to explore your own feelings or experiences about losing a partner and being alone. The Three of Swords can be symbolic of your own fear of abandonment. It is a great reminder to be aware of how your own fears can be projected onto your partner or romantic relationships.
In some cases, the Three of Swords reversed can indicate an inability to let go of old emotional wounds. Usually these are the relationships that left you feeling utterly devastated. It is urges you to become willing to let go and “cut” the ties from your past.
In a reversed position, however, the Three of Swords can be a positive card. In love tarot readings, it can be a sign that hurt, heartbreak and sadness are at last passing. The reward is discovering your inner strength and beauty. The ultimate goal is to learn how much you are worth. Your past experiences have made you wiser and more authentic.
