The Tower and Three of Swords cards together – what do they mean?
The Tower and the Three of Swords do not come together in happiness. What they do offer, is an opportunity to heal from all that has wronged you.
Life: Sudden heartache, loss, negative uncertainty
Love: Heartbreaking news, possible infidelity, sudden loss or break up
Career: Feeling lost, unsure what you want to do, lack of action
Health: Tired, mentally and physically exhausted, possible need to see a doctor
We ill prepare for perilous times, but it is from these we learn our greatest lessons in life.
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
Three Of Swords interpretation
The Three Of Swords suffers greatly in loss.
When darkness looms, you can sometimes prepare for what is to come. Like a weather warning, we can make sure our food is in supply, that our windows are battened and that our torches are at the ready. Thank goodness for warnings, right? On this occasion for you, there is no warning. You don’t have the time to ensure your heart and mind are secure,but you still have to ride out the storm.
This leaves you bewildered and hurt. ‘What ifs’ encircle your mind as you wonder how differently it would have turned out had you been prepared, but sometimes, what certain cards want you to think about, is what comes next, and how you can turn this into a positive. In doing this, you gain strength and a most certain lesson in life and love.
This could assign itself to your love life, with the potential for conflict or a break up. You are not seeing things as a unity any more and this is causing great sadness to you or both. You could even find yourself stuck at work, feeling lost or even experiencing a job loss. However you sit presently, you are hurting and things feel pretty hopeless for you. There is however, always hope.
