This particular card depicts the harshest times of heartbreak and the pain of loss and betrayal.
III. Message of the Three of Swords Witches Tarot
When the Three of Swords Witches Tarot appears in a Tarot spread, it creates an instinctive reaction. This is a horribly cruel card as there is no more pleasant or soft way to express it. It is like a sudden painful punch. This card, more than any other, describes the pain and loss that the querent is experiencing at the moment. What you need to understand is that you will have to take the pain to your heart, accept it, shed tears, and then let go of it. Once you have accepted suffering and experienced sadness, then – and only then – can you move on.
The Three of Swords Witches Tarot can represent the delay of a project and the painful plans or retribution experienced when the spell returns to haunt the owner. You open your heart to give love, but that is one-way love. You overhear your best friend making fun of you behind your back. You discover that your co-worker has been lying to you all along. Your world is suddenly turned upside down. You are stunned, doubt everything, and sink into misery. The image on the Three of Swords depicts a sudden pain. You feel like someone stabbed a sharp sword through your heart. A small detail such as a harsh comment or criticism can hurt you just as much. Notice that the image here is simply a heart and three swords. When your heart is broken, you will feel nothing but the pain of an open wound.
In a Tarot spread, the Three of Swords Witches Tarot represents the uncomfortable curves that life sometimes throws at you, such as betrayal, abandonment, rejection, separation, reversed fortunes, and the like. There are pains that cannot be expressed in words because they strike you when you least expect them to happen. If you get this card, you probably already know what it is about. But if you are not sure what the card is specifically referring to, then it is a valuable warning. Maybe there is something wrong with your life that you don’t know or don’t want to admit. Pain can come when we are 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 Witches 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 a big mistake. 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.
IV. The Three of Swords Witches in a Tarot spread
In the traditional Tarot deck, the Three of Swords Witches Tarot is depicted as a heart pierced by three swords. The image of the card is as simple as its meaning which is loss and betrayal. If you recently experienced a breakup, had to leave a job you love, or had an intense conflict with a friend, the Three of Swords will appear at the focus of the spread. Although fate and unhappiness are associated with this card, it is best to look at it as a confirmation that the hurt you are feeling is natural and you are not overreacting in this situation.
Regardless of the image the Three of Swords Witches Tarot is depicted in most Tarot decks, remember that this card is not all bad. Although the intention of this card is sadness, it also brings understanding and comfort. 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 does not make it go away. For example, ignoring a broken leg does not make it heal. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the balance here as for 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 it is.
When the Magician appears with the Three of Swords Witches Tarot, it means that you have more control over the current situation than you think. The Three of Swords when paired with the High Priestess is a sign that the person responsible for the negativity of your current situation will find a way to discharge. In that situation, you need to understand that you may not get the result you are looking for.
In terms of work, your feelings or ego will be hurt because of a work-related problem. Try to keep in mind that your life is not just (nor should) be all about what you understand and do well. There will come a time when you need some help to get better at your job, and then don’t hesitate to ask. If you are in the job search phase, you may have to try moving into a different field than the direction you are pursuing. Be persistent!
In terms of love, the Three of Swords Witches Tarot is not a death knell for your relationship, it is rather a warning that both of you may be facing many difficulties and suffering. For a relationship to last and blossom, both partners need to be willing to act, talk, and think about the relationship. You may find that someone you think cares about you actually does not love you as much as you thought they would. If that is the case, don’t just keep your pain to yourself and grieve for too long. You are finding the right direction for a better relationship. We cannot force things to go our way or demand that someone cares about us if they don’t want to. A true lover will always care – in their own way and completely voluntarily – without you having to say or ask.
In terms of finance, the Three of Swords Witches Tarot can be an unfortunate message. But remember that fear will not help you at all. Look at the situation without flinching and think about what needs to be done step by step. If the current situation is completely tragic, don’t try to imagine a far-off scenario. Start with what is at hand, even small things like what your next meal is. Don’t let your pride stop you from asking for financial help right now. Letting others help you is also a way of giving them joy.
In terms of health, your health may not be as good as you expect. Emotions, depression, or anxiety can affect your health negatively. Keeping a positive attitude is the most important thing right now, no matter what the problem or the current situation is. Remember that doctors are not gods. Treat yourself with love and positive thinking. Learn about good cures. If you need help, just ask for it. Surround yourself with healthy mental energy and influences as much as possible.
In terms of spirituality, this is not the time to give in 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 best 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.
Even if there is some pain and disappointment that will come when the reversed Three of Swords Witches Tarot appears, that feeling will be healed, and there comes a new brighter future. When you receive this reversed card, you may have resolved the suffering and sadness that you are facing. Know that no pain lasts forever. In general, the reversed Three of Swords is a harbinger of disappointment. This is not necessarily something big or will turn your life upside down, but just something that you hope for but cannot fulfill. Allow yourself to feel and experience whatever results come your way and keep moving forward, no matter how painful. That disappointment really is not the end.
