In a Tarot spread, if Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot appears in the past position, it can indicate that past failures, betrayals, or hurts are eating away at your confidence. Often this card wants the querent to face painful or difficult things in the past or present and then move on and step towards the light. You probably don’t want this card to appear in the future position. If so, look at the other cards to see if there is a way to avoid or minimize the darkness ahead? It will be unfortunate if you see this card appear with Death or the Tower, the upcoming changes will be very unpleasant and full of loss.

The card also warns you that your current course of action will cause harm to others and to yourself. In this aspect, be especially careful with this card if it goes with the Chariot!
In general, this card is quite negative, but in the reversed position, it talks about difficulties that you have conquered or things that have made you stronger and gave you valuable experiences. Specifically, this card warns about self-inflicted pain – arguments that could have been avoided, unnecessary pain, even injuries and illnesses that you might not have gotten. Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot can also talk about the darkness that has been covered for too long. Maybe you’ve wallowed in negative emotional, psychological, or physical spaces. Now is the time to stand up and step out of the darkness. You need to take action to save yourself. Draw the swords out and heal yourself. You can still breathe and you can still find the light source.
In terms of work, everything is at a standstill. Your work ethic is quite low. The Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot alludes to division and disorientation at the company and the project has reached the point of disbandment. It seems that all means of salvation to restore the old condition have ceased to be effective. This downfall is not a physical problem, but a spiritual one. The card shows that the problem of work depends not only on external material factors but also on internal mental ones. The advice to you is to find the key or mental problem that is disrupting your work. However, the probability of recovery is not really high.
In terms of finance, the card speaks of a failure caused by the loss of trust and responsibility. The trust on both sides of the partners is gone. If you are lending, you run the risk of not being able to continue to find borrowers; If you are taking out a loan, you run the risk of not finding a lender. The problem is even bigger, when the old lender or borrower will now withdraw the promise. The losses can be even greater such as defaulting or not being able to recover the loan amount. The advice is to stop lending or borrowing because you need to be more careful in choosing a partner.
In terms of friends and associates, the Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot signals that the people you come into contact with during this time are really unreliable. Alienation and metamorphosis have come into play. This variation may be your fault, not entirely circumstantial. Be more careful than ever in your relationships with friends or associates. This card does not imply that you will be betrayed or shunned by all your friends, but it is clear that you will have real trouble with these relationships in the present time. The card also shows a complete breakup for emotional relationships. It is not a separation of space due to business travel or long-term work like other cards, but a truly irretrievable parting.
You may find that someone you think cares about you actually doesn’t love you as much as you thought. If that’s the problem you’re having, then don’t just keep your pain to yourself and don’t grieve for too long. Maybe you are finding the right direction for the right relationship for you. We can’t force things to happen our way or demand that someone cares about us if they don’t want to in their hearts. A true lover will always care – in their own way and completely voluntarily – without you having to say or ask.
In terms of family and loved ones, the Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot implies the same thing as your romantic relationship. The change in your loved one’s mentality is rapid and increasingly obvious. You may not want this change and do everything you can to combat it, however, this is futile and the disturbance will continue without end. Emotional rifts happen more easily during this period. The advice is that you should be careful with your actions and words when angry because often the emotional cracks come from there.
In terms of married life, the card talks about the specifics of love: revenge, divorce, or separation. Breakups can happen easier than you think, sometimes for rather outlandish reasons. The change has become unbearable for both of you. The disorder of both will lead to more troubles such as families, children, money, property. The advice is to stay calm before making a decision, especially if it affects later momentous ones like separation or divorce.
IV. Message of Three of Swords Linestrider
There are pains that cannot be expressed in words because they strike you when you least expect them to happen. If you’ve drawn this card, you probably already know what it’s about; but if you are not sure what the card is specifically referring to, then the Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot is a valuable warning. Maybe there’s something wrong with your life that you don’t know or don’t want to admit. Pain can come when we’re not paying attention. Consider the situation carefully. Talk to the people around you. Don’t hypothesize or assume anything. Listen to your inner voice; it will help you locate the problem.
The Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot can also be a reflection of your intended desire to hurt others. With this card, it is important to remember that each of us has a bad side. We are all human, and we all make mistakes, sometimes big mistakes. In the end, all we can do is believe in the goodness of life and try to live up to that ideal. When you fall, forgive yourself, and try to forgive others if they fall too. Of course, the best thing is to catch up with difficulties before they happen.
Regardless of the image Three of Swords Linestrider Tarot is depicted in most Tarot decks, remember that this card is not all bad. Although the intention of this card is sadness, on the other hand, it also brings understanding and joy. Allow yourself to feel and fully experience any sadness or pain, for only then will you be able to overcome it.
This card deals with a rather important emotional issue that the querent needs to deal with before moving on. Denying pain doesn’t make it go away (like denying a broken leg doesn’t make it heal). However, it is important to pay attention to the balance here as with the Two of Swords. Allow yourself to experience the pain, but don’t dwell on it too long or too deeply. However, only you can decide how long is enough. No one else can decide for you.
This is not the time to concede to events, ideas, situations, or people who impose their spiritual beliefs on your life. You need time to create new things for yourself, your heart, your emotions, your spirit. Making space for yourself is the best option right now. Have you done all the healing or relaxing rituals you need to do? The answers you seek are within you, though you may need help finding them. Talk to someone you trust!
