THREE OF SWORDS
The number three stands for creativity, enthusiasm, action, growth and expansion. The asker can now can enjoy the fruits of the labour he put into a relationship or appreciate how he handled the problems after seeing them resolved.
This card carries a lot of tension, perhaps as a result of a relationship ending due to infidelity, communication failure or a bitter argument. There’s a lot of grief, emotional pain and feelings of rejection. This pain is usually strong because it comes out of the blue, so take this card as a warning sign to be aware. If you’re able to identify the problem, the hurt won’t come as a huge surprise and therefore won’t be as intense.
It’s also important to understand that without pain, we can’t fully appreciate the good times. It helps shape us and grow! In the end, everything will be okay.
Threes can also refer to something medical as well; anything from getting a routine shot, to undergoing an operation.
To me, this card leans more toward a medical meaning. On the rare occasion it comes up, it’s usually because I have a doctor’s appointment.
However, I often pulled this card at the end of my marriage, when my ex and I would constantly argue.
Looking back, I’m thankful for the pain; I wouldn’t have been able to live my life the way I do today without the strength and appreciation for all the good things flowing my way!
