Tarot Card of the Week: Three of Swords

Chinese Tarot - Three of Swords

Tarot Card of the Week: Feb 27 – Mar 5, 2017

Three of Swords

This may be a high energy and potentially volatile week. Emotions can be difficult to contain — particularly the more aggressive emotions, like anger, impatience and indignation.

You want to be on your toes, especially where relationships are concerned as you may have to deflect a few daggers that come your way.

The Three of Swords — this version from the gorgeous Chinese Tarot — is often seen as pain and heartache, but this version veers so significantly from traditional imagery that it becomes a welcome and refreshing change.

You may not be particularly happy every moment of every day. You may still feel the sting of rejection or love lost.

But as you can see from the figure in in this card, it’s more about stopping pain in its tracks than it is about allowing it to cut you to your deepest core.

The young warrior in this card is a whirlwind of action and energy. She sees the sword coming at her and acts with deftness and precision. She wields two swords of her own and uses them to block the third one, thus minimizing the damage done.
