Most often, the reversed 3 De Coupe Tarot appears in sentimental matters and reveals that a third person is involved. It may be that you are this third person, and you are involved in an adventure with an unfaithful partner. When this card appears in a spread, you should withdraw more cards to refer to the details of the nature of the relationship.
If there is the Seven of Swords – 7 D’épée Tarot, there may be betrayal and deception that can take place. If there is the Five of Swords – 5 D’épée Tarot, you may have felt that there is a third person but you are trying to ignore that fact. If there is the Devil – Le Diable Tarot, you should think about the nature of the relationship because it can be unhealthy freedom for people involved. It is unlikely that this situation is sustainable because two is good, three is too much, so it becomes urgent to take action.

Likewise, it may indicate that you have lost contact with your close friends, perhaps because of a quarrel or because of more demanding priorities such as work or family obligations.
