Three of Swords as Feelings
The Three of Swords is often associated with feelings of heartbreak, pain, and emotional turmoil. It can indicate that a relationship or situation is causing emotional suffering, or that you are dealing with a difficult emotional experience. I think of this card as disappointment and disillusionment with a relationship or even love itself. It’s the heartbreak, pain, and sadness card.
Three of Swords Reversed as Feelings
When the Three of Swords is reversed in a reading, it can indicate that you are starting to heal from a difficult emotional experience. You may be finding ways to cope with and move on from the pain, or finding a sense of closure and resolution. This card can also suggest that you are able to look at a difficult situation more objectively. And that you are gaining a deeper understanding of what happened and why. It may still be a challenging time, but the reversed position of the Three of Swords suggests that you are making progress and finding ways to move forward.
If this card shows up in your reading, this is definitely the way you want it to appear. In reverse, you are beginning to move forward or move on from a relationship.
Three of Swords Zodiac Sign
The Three of Swords is a Libra card. I think it relates to Libra’s indecisiveness at times. They see both sides of every situation and they can get mired down in their thoughts. This card symbolizes painful, unhelpful thoughts.
