Today’s card is the Three of Swords.
Three swords pierce a disembodied heart, as a cold rain pours down from grey clouds.
Heartbreak – what else? The Three of Swords is one of the most clear-cut cards in the deck. The symbolism of a heart being pierced by swords couldn’t be clearer – but even then, we must look deeper. The cause of these heartbreaks would take books to list: a breakup, a betrayal, a longing… But there is a darker side here, involving the heartbreak of others. Sometimes the Three of Swords is one of the most violent cards in the deck – a command to pierce someone through their heart in vengeance.
