Three of Swords – Tres de Espadas
Three of Swords
Waite – The Three of Swords is a simply illustrated card with a difficult message. A heart, suspended in the air, is pierced by three swords. The heart is symbolic of emotion and beauty, while the piercing swords reflect the ability of logic and power to harm the physical body and the emotions of a person. The sky is heavily clouded and rain pours down violently, representing a grim moment in time.
The Three of Swords represents rejection, sadness, loneliness, heartbreak, betrayal, separation and grief. That said, pain, sorrow and grief are often necessity in the journey of life. Without pain, the would be no challenge and no lessions learned. The Three of Swords is also about release. It is time to accept the loss and then move forward with your life.
