wild {unknown} friday

Two’s company, three’s a crowd. This week you could feel left out in the cold in a relationship…..betrayed but yet bound into a situation from which you feel there is no escape. In this ménage a trois there are no winners; everyone is damaged and bloodied, battered and bruised. It needs one of the parties to realise the destructive nature of this liaison and start the process to cut the ties that bind and extricate themselves. This is the only way to set everyone free so that they can go forward to love and live to the full again.

The Three of Swords puts me in mind of an emotional entanglement such as an affair. It is as if three people are bound together in a very painful, tumultuous and confusing situation, and it seems that “three is a crowd”. Although they probably wish they could break free, the emotional ties which bind them together won’t loosen their grip. It is as if they are trapped, suffocated and overwhelmed. The centre of the card is black suggesting that they can’t see a way out of this situation; however the periphery is white which seems to say that there is hope and relief on the horizon.
To me it also speaks of a divorce or separation and the devastating effects this might have on all those involved. This looks like an archetypal ménage a trois situation, where no one is going to emerge unscathed. It could also highlight a familial situation where a child or other innocent party is trapped in the middle between two warring factions. Unfortunately the smallest, most vulnerable sword is the one which is bleeding most profusely, pointing to the fact that the most powerless in these scenarios often come off worst.
Because the suit of swords relates to the mental realm, it has a strong association with the mind-body connection. When we have painful thoughts we feel that pain in our body….hence the word ‘heartbreak’.
This card can therefore speak of the ways in which we create and deepen our pain with thoughts and words. If you are currently experiencing painful thoughts, this card asks you to consider how your thoughts themselves may be exacerbating your struggle.

  Today ugly secrets may be revealed involving deceit, lies and betrayal. This could be concerning a love triangle or ménage a trois where nobody escapes unscathed. It is also a possibility that the temptation to become involved in this kind of scenario may present itself. Think long and hard before becoming entangled as these situations rarely end well for anyone embroiled in them.
