Alright, brace yourselves for today's card, because, well....it sucks. It's the Three of Swords, one of the "baddies" of the Tarot, and a card that people dread. But, we're in this together, and we'll get through it because there's really no other choice.
Picturing a heart pierced with three swords, this card represents pretty much what it looks like it would. You've offered someone your heart, your confidence, your trust, and they basically stabbed you in the back. Or the heart. You get the idea. This betrayal could be new, or it could be something that has gone on for a while, but the card itself is about the "Oh, HELL NO" of discovering it. So, whatever the topic in question is, just be aware: something is rotten in the state of Denmark. "Well, that's the worst news ever," you may say while looking at this mega-bummer card. And I won't sugar-coat it, it is pretty crappy. The feelings associated with finding out someone has been screwing with you, playing mind games, stepping out on you, whatever it is are awful. The pain is intense, seemingly-endless, excruciating, and just plain gross. But as bad as it is at this moment, it is only temporary. The Suit of Swords represents our mind, thoughts, and ideas, and these are things which are both impermanent and alterable. So, at risk of sounding cliche: This too shall pass. Unfortunately, you have to endure the full spectrum of awfulness first. And remember, when this card appears in a spread, it is related to the cards around it, and to the question being asked, so the meaning is individualized in that moment.
Later today, we will visit an intense heart-opening pose that I LOVE, and whose intensity certainly doesn't match that of the Three of Swords, but will likely make you feel some feels. It's Wild Thing or Camatkarasana, and works with the Anahata or Heart Chakra. So, be there or be square, my lovelies!
