The Three of Swords implies that it is time to let go of things that you know are no longer positively serving you in your life. This is not a time to try to hold on to things, ideas, situations, or people which may have run their course in your life. You must make room in your life, heart, spirit for new things to come to you.
The Three of Swords may signifies a time of sadness and sorrow. There are lessons to be learnt during this time, and even though what you are experiencing may be perceived as ‘negative’, there is comfort in the recognition that things are the way they are for a reason. The 3 of Swords implies that something sad or painful must be allowed to work itself out.
Have you done all the healing that you need to do? The answers you seek are within you, although you may need help to bring them to the surface. Talk with someone you trust.
