The Whispering Path Tarot


The 3 of Swords is an ominous looking card.  Regardless of the position, the first reaction I usually get when this card comes up is pain, sorrow and betrayal.
Understanding the 3 of Swords
The heart is a symbol of affection, love and joy.  It can also represent conscience, truth and courage.
Clouds are a symbol of ‘clouded’ vision or confusion.  Clouds could also indicate a revelation or epiphany.  That sudden moment when all becomes clear.  Notice the clouds clearing on the 3 of swords.
Taking these symbols into consideration, if the 3 of swords shows up in your reading it could be asking you:
What truths are you hiding from?
In this situation, am I being honest with the people I am close to? 
Am I being honest with myself?
Can I learn any lessons from the pain I am feeling right now?
How do I see the problem clearly?
What is the heart of the problem?
The 3 of swords can indicate a time of:

loss


separation


sorrow


loss of balance


disharmony


disruption


heartbreak


betrayal

The 3 of Swords is that stabbing jolt of pain and the achy feeling after in your heart when your world has been turned upside down.  :(
The 3 of Swords reversed
When the 3 of Swords reversed shows up in a tarot reading you could be blocking

pain


sorrow


loss


confusion

When you block, resist or ignorethese energies you will not be able to deal with the problem, heal and move on.  
don’t be afraid to say you are sorry
let the pain in—deal with it and move on
learn to accept the situation
allow yourself the time to grieve

Once you can release the hold of the reversed 3 of Swords you can then move on and open your heart again to a new beginning and new experiences.

Sometimes when the 3 of Swords comes up reversed in a reading my intuition tells me that the energy of the 3 of Swords is waning and that ‘tomorrow will be a better day’.
