The Three of Swords is the card of grief and sorrow, and unfortunately, the three of swords informs us that this can not be avoided. One must move through the process of letting go.
Heartache and confusion are present when the Three of Swords appears.
These relationships were once pleasant and passionate-it may be discovered that there was no depth to sustain them.
Usually, there is some form of betrayal involved. What was beautiful and romantic under the light of the moon is exposed as empty and possibly deceitful in the light of day.
Emotional stress and anxiety go hand in hand with the Three of Swords reversed.
Relationships are confusing, communication breaks down and it seems that there is only a great deal of emotional pain left to experience.
When this card appears, the relationship has usually ended and healing has begun, even if it seems like the wounds are still raw.
Every ending brings a new beginning.
