Three Of Swords – Gilded Tarot Deck
I. Meaning of the Three of Swords Gilded Tarot
On the Three of Swords Gilded Tarot, we can see a large heart bulged in the stormy sky and pierced by three swords. Obviously, this is an image of a heartbreak that is shown in a dramatic and tragic way. Look at the picture carefully. The sun, representing the ego, is located in the center of the heart. The ego is fully empathizing with the emotional pain, making it bigger than usual. The swords closed to the heart indicate a flaw in the way the situation is perceived. Letting go of our emotions gives us a glimpse of the big picture. A proper perspective will make things clearer.
In this case, The Empress Gilded Tarot, the card numbered III of the Major Arcana will be able to offer the care and healing that helps to overcome the pain.
II. Message of the Three of Swords Gilded Tarot
The message of the Three of Swords Gilded Tarot is that you have experienced heartbreak. However, you may not be able to see the effects of this damage. Just because it is hard to end a relationship does not mean your life is over, which is what you are probably feeling right now. Let’s get to the real point of view. Beware of the allure of a tragically broken heart of a person in love. That person will only have reason to wither and mourn and never move on. Depression, in this case, maybe just a cover-up and an excuse to hide from life.
