The Bleeding Heart

By Safina :: :: 66 comments

About the Swords:  The Swords usually indicate a struggle or conflict, a possible decision about separating from your past attachments.  There is a desire to find truth that will shed light on your situation so you can act on it.  The Swords represent your thoughts, which will cut into and sort through your situation.

The Swords further represent the element of air, the season of spring, the color yellow, and the direction of the east.  The Swords are associated with the astrological signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.

Their positive characteristics are their strength, authority, courage, ambition and desire to travel.  The “Sword Archetypes” desire to seek the truth and are not afraid to call a “spade a spade”!

They experience conflict, pain, anger and aggression, and are connected to the spring months in the northern hemisphere and the fall season in the southern hemisphere:  The time of March 21 to June 21.  The timing of the Swords is undetermined in my deck, because this Archetype wrestles with unresolved issues in their mind, but when the timing is on course, it all happens with sudden rapidity.

My experience with the Three of Swords:  The Three of Swords represents a painful love triangle, and every time I see this card, it reminds me about the end of my marriage.  As I remember, my mother said that we had to go find a red vehicle, and she further said, “The red vehicle was not far away from your house.”  My mother was told by her spiritual connection that we were going to find a red vehicle with an out of state license plate.

So, one night, we decided to drive around the area that we lived in, and we found a red SUV within .7 miles from the house, with an out of state license.  The red SUV was parked at the condos, located next to the golf course, were the snow birds stayed during the winter season.  My husband’s car was parked next to the red SUV, and at that moment, I understood the feeling of the Three of Swords.  I felt like the Archetype in this card, lying in the coffin with three swords piercing my heart.

Before the ending of my marriage, I remember my spiritual guides telling me not to buy anything for the house, because I would not be taking it with me.  That night, I finally understood why my husband’s personality changed like a flash, and why my spiritual guides were warning me not to make any large purchases connected to the house.

My ex-husband is the Aquarius zodiac air sign, and they are known to change their temperament as fast as the wind changes and will not hesitate to express their anger verbally.  During the last two (2) years of our marriage, he constantly picked on me for everything I did.

He was comparing me to the other woman in his life, and I should have seen through his abusive change of his behavior, but I did not see everything clearly until the night we found the red SUV.  That was the night that I learned to pay attention to my spiritual connection, and never second-guess myself again.

My interpretation of the Three Of Swords:  The Three of Swords represents a painful love triangle but does not always represent your partner’s unfaithfulness.  It may mean that your partner is still stuck in the past, and unable to release another person.  Therefore, your partner is thinking about the other person constantly, neglectful of you.

Your partner cannot find a way to resolve their feelings and make the right choice, so they chose to stay in a love triangle that wounds you deeply.  Actually, you and your partner are in this love triangle together, and both of you are feeling different aspects of its pain.

Another side to the Three of Swords is that your partner chose the person from the past over you.  You have pain, sorrow and a deep, heartfelt loss.  You are experiencing the consequences of your poor choices and blindness to the instability of your relationship.  You really believed that your partner was going to choose you in the end, but this did not happen.

You are at the point where everything has finally surfaced.  The worst is over, and you are no longer second-guessing yourself.  You are shedding tears and entering a cleansing process, realizing the difficulty of letting go and coming to terms with the loss.  You are the one who was deeply hurt and are trying to find your way out of the pain.

My interpretation of the symbolism of this card:  The Three of Swords shows a triangle pointing in three directions.  One direction is from the past while the other two directions are in the present.  The Three of Swords represents sorrow, disappointment, separation, betrayal, abandonment and rejection.

The sky is gray and full of clouds representing an uneasy feeling as the gray clouds in the sky unleash rain, a premonition of bad news.

There is a man lying in a coffin with three swords piercing his heart.  The three swords represent the pain of a love triangle, but the piercing three swords represent a deep hurt at the center of one’s focus.

A mourned loss brings forth many tears, which are represented by the rain pouring from the clouds.  These tears reflect a cleansing process, purification and the release of painful emotions associated with the loss of a once fulfilling, comfortable relationship that became stunted.

The worst is over because everything is revealed, and it is now necessary to prepare for a more fulfilling future relationship and let the past go, despite the lingering hurt.

    Thank you for the reading about the broken heart, a lot of which i related to. Mine isnt a relationship, my ex and me divorced years ago. My loss stems from my stolen pet, the pain and grief from not knowing what happened to her is slowly killing me and keeping me away from the people i love and should be with. Grief and non closure are such intense feelings. Is she alive , did someone kill her, did she suffer? these thoughts go around in my mind everyday, how do u find closure when u have tried everything, its like hitting a brick wall everyday. perhaps i need a pet psychic, im not sure what do do, our pets r like our children in a way. If only i knew who took her and what happened, i could find an inner peace so great i could become psychic myself i think.

    Your reading was so on target! That’s exactly what just happened to me. For 5 years my husband has been with this other woman, which he recently, after 12 years, left me for her. Before he abandoned me, he would find something to argue about daily, for now apparent reason and I couldn’t understand why the change and verbal abuse. But, it’s exactly what you said...he was comparing me to the other woman justifying the reasons for leaving me. Not caring about the ramnifications of his decision of leaving me for her. We will be in court in a 1 week and a half for the final signing of our divorce. I am so hurt and broken inside.

    Thanks for the reading.

      Hello babe,

      I am so sorry that you are going through this! I did not listen to spirit when I was told not to buy anything for the house because I would not be able to take it with me. When everything came out in the open, I trully realized why he was picking on me for everything. Yes, comparing me to the other woman, well now the other woman will go through the same thing I did. Glad its not me anymore!

      Hope you feel better, you come talk to me if you need to, I am here!

    I also experienced the three of swords several years ago. I cant read the tarot well, just a little. My chinchilla that I loved so deeply had swallowed something and he was extremely sick. Took him to a vet, and they said it was too late. I sat in the office for 2 hours crying because I couldnt accept that I was going to lose him. I finally had him put down. I also had a beautiful, sweet, cat named delilah that I lost years ago. She was my angel. I had to have her put down also. I cried for days. I love animals so deeply. I also lost my son 4 years ago. He was 25 years old. He had heart trouble and he died from heart failure. So, I truly do know how deep the pain is wheneveer the 3 of swords shows up.

    While I don’t think it’s chance or irony that I came across this particular blog, it is unsettling that your experience is very much my own – aside from your mother being involved... I very much believe in signs, being I am very much in tune with my own intuition, dreams, and psychic abilities. Sometimes, so much so, it scares me and I have to take a reprieve from the outside world to make sense of, and come to terms with things I’ve felt, sensed, or dreamed. My current situation is that of your experience. This card has come up many times in my own readings for myself. I am still learning the art of tarot but, I knew full well what this card meant for me – without having to question. I haven’t done a physical tarot reading for sometime since. Only online, which I know is actually quite different, even with meditation. I’m still coming to terms with my wife’s indiscretions – which, unfortunately, are many. My anger is now more subdued in regards to her and I. However, our son is being irrevocably affected. She has no time for him. Sadly, this card is one of my favorites – reminding me that it isn’t only about me... Harsh to realize but, true.

      Another thing... I have been having many and very vivid dreams of her and her new paramour. They are so detailed that I was not able to control my sadness when I woke from a nap yesterday. It was very real, which, I verified not more than five minutes later. I dreamt they were outside taking pictures... I saw the pictures... Via internet...

      Hello Babe,

      I am sorry that you are going through this but the good thing about the 3 of swords represents the worst is over, but the past is still lingering in your thoughts because of what you went through as the swords represent the thoughts in your mind, and how they mess up your focus, and yes sounds like your wife was a real piece of work and that her selfishness to love her child is really a sickness because she puts everything else in front. I am so sorry that you are going through this and I am here to talk if you want to come live chat babe.

    Dear Safina

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience of the 3 of swords and for your interpretation.
    I am so glad you say that when this card comes up in your reading, it means the worst is over. I have slowly been coming to terms with having left a man due to his violent temper, which has left me with what feels to be a long term injury (I still, after several months, experience pains in my right arm from shoulder to wrist to index finger). It’s been three weeks, since he broke off the relationship, when I said that I couldn’t stay at his for a weekend so soon after the attacks and that I needed physical, psychological and emotional healing, before I could even think about spending the night with him again...also urging him to seek counselling for his violent anger. Apart from the pain of the shock of the abuse, I have been suffering the pain of the sudden breakup after all our plans for the future. Although I had initiated the breakup, I guess he felt more in control by actually saying the words.

    None-the-less, I called him yesterday evening to have the rest of my belongings returned. Placing my phone on speaker to free up my hands to ready myself for an evening out, I reached for the phone to speak to him after 3 “hello” and an assumption the “it must be a cold-caller” these words were repeated by a female in the background, and I was so taken aback that I couldn’t speak and cut the call.
    As crazy as this all sounds, I immediately thought, wow..so soon? And then almost immediately thought he must have been seeing this person the whole time we were together or at least when he started turning nasty! I have spent the day feeling a mixture of incredulousness, fresh hurt, acceptance and strangley wanting an explanation/confirmation.
    Needless to say, I drew the 3 of swords!
    Above all, my confusion is beginning to clear as I see now that I must move on, as I suspect he has either reunited with an ex or is in a new relationship.

    Thank you once again for the clarity

    Love and Light

    Thank you for your 3 of swords – The Bleeding Heart. You hit the reading right on the nail. I have been going through a major struggle with my husband for months with him placing a block on his phone and texting other women whom he claims are just friends. Finally, I found a text message from him to another woman who is younger than me asking her out on a date. After confronting him, he kept saying it was nothing, and then a week later found the girls’ photo in his phone and saw that they have been texting each other. Not only did I confront him but also cried for two days. I feel that I am now able and ready to walk away from this marriage although he says, “no let’s stay together”.
