A bad choice that could ruin the next few years. 
Perhaps dissatisfaction with their choice in love.

This is where The Three of Swords falls squarely. On the one hand, it can indicate difficulties for a partner, misunderstanding, hidden deceptions, arguments, disappointments.

This may be just a moment, and the relationship can be saved if you act truthfully and if there are true feelings. In its darker face, The Three of Swords indicates ruptures, divorces, betrayals, abandonment. There is a deep heartbreak, and usually everything happens in a rush, almost without warning.

If you are alone and looking for love, you may have several misunderstandings, people who seem like one thing and then disappoint you when you go deeper.

It is a difficult time without a doubt. You have to live that pain to get it out, express it. If you save it and don’t process it properly, you will never get out of it.

Your feelings or your ego can feel quite hit by something that happens at work. There may be an unexpected betrayal, the cancellation of an important project, someone else taking credit for something you did.

At worst it may be job loss, but it is usually more of a painful event related to a disappointment or a major roadblock that unexpectedly appears to frustrate your plan.

If you are looking for a job, focus on fields or activities different from those you have always done, change the focus, try your luck with something different even if it is not in your domain.


Three of Swords : Money

The Three of Swords keeps the disappointments. If the situation is overwhelming, don’t try to look at the whole, the big picture.

Take small pieces of the situation and analyze them, solve part by part, day by day. Find the causes that have plunged you into this and try to correct them.

Ask for help if you need it, don’t let pride make things more complicated. Bad time for investments and expenses, to expand and grow. Bad time to create a partnership, due to the risk of betrayal and disappointment.

Three of Swords says that you have something to grieve and something to cry about. You are under stress or are very worried about the fact that a loved one has left you. 

It is very important to consider where your sadness will lead. Perhaps you need to part with some person or get out of the situation if such a relationship does not bring you anything but heartache. 

This card can predict illness or say that your well-being in the near future will be closely dependent on the weather. This is a map of a gap, a necessary clipping of unnecessary ones, sometimes it indicates a major surgery or complex dental problems. 

Be careful and don’t push your loved one away just because you feel tense and irritable.

Sometimes the Three of Swords portends death. We can talk about death if there are several cards in the layout that portend it, for example, the Tower, Death, cards with a large number of Swords, many cards in an inverted position, etc.

However, most often the presence of the Three of Swords in the layout indicates that the questioner will receive the news of the death of an acquaintance or loved one.


Three of Swords Reversed Meaning:

  • Recovery. 
  • The worst is over. 
  • You have experienced separation, but the pain continues. 
  • Less painful breakup. 
  • Unwillingness to let go of the pain of the past. 
  • Long-term regret and depression. 
  • Uncomplicated surgical operations.

Heart pain subsides. You have experienced a rather painful situation that is already coming to an end. The suffering was unbearable, and for some time it will continue. There is nothing you can do to restore a broken relationship. Now that the worst is over, recovery awaits you. 

Although parting is inevitable, it will still not be as painful as if the three of Swords were present in the correct position. If your question is about health, then you may have a minor surgery or a visit to the dentist. 

A meeting with a person with whom you once made a compromise is possible.
