What the Three of Swords REALLY Means….

fridays with veronicaVeronica is my bad to the bone alter ego and she is here to slap some sense into you! She took time out of her hectic day of hot yoga, napping and netflixing to write you this reading – so you’d better listen up and take her advice…

3 of swords
Hezicos Tarot by Mary Griffin

When I was a little girl, my grandmother had a really pretty silk pincushion that she kept tucked away in her sewing box.

Every time I used to visit I would find that pincushion and violently stab pins into it, delighting in the way it felt to be so brutal with something so delicate.

Now lets pretend that pincushion is your heart and those pins are your negative thoughts. That’s what the Three of Swords is all about!

Sometimes we want to have negative thoughts and feel the drama that arises. Sometimes we secretly get off on  believing that others are betraying us in some way – so we can be all pissy pants about it and mope around in our own misery.

So if someone isn’t quite living up to your romantic expectations of how they should be, ask yourself if that’s really true or are you just causing unnecessary heartache for yourself?

Because admit it, on some level that self-inflicted cruelty is a little bit delicious! At least it gives you a good excuse to binge on chocolate and exotic man-boys.

Or maybe that’s just me.

Although the Three of Swords is the triple penetration card! Pfffft! Teeeheehee!

Veronica’s take on the 3 of Swords

fridays with veronicaVeronica Noir is my batshit crazy twin sister. She is just like me except she’s brilliant, has no sense of guilt or shame, speaks her mind and does whatever she wants, when she wants! Kind of like a psychopath….but with a heart of gold. Oh, and she also reads Tarot…

Love, loss and betrayals of the heart! These are thing things the Three of Swords is made of. But don’t fret! All is not lost.

If you discover your lover is having an affair, you have two choices: cry into your oatmeal and listen to Taylor Swift songs as you load up your wagon and head to splitsville.


You could have a threesome!

Your welcome.

Really, its that simple. I could also have said “when life gives you lemons, make lemonaide”, but I thought you’d appreciate the x-rated version 😉

If things aren’t going your way, ask yourself how you can have some delicious fun with it. Trust me, behind every failure, infidelity or disaster is a hot, steamy encounter just waiting to happen!

Intuitive Tarot by Cilla Conway

Your head and your heart are intimately connected and the Three of Swords Tarot card wants to remind you of that. Your thoughts deeply effect how you feel about yourself and how you relate to others right now.

The Three of Swords usually comes up when you are causing yourself unnecessary emotional pain. What kind of thoughts are running through that head of yours today? How are they are making you feel?

You may be taking things a little to personally right now – like reading too much into something someone said and then playing it over in your mind and feeling all sad and glum. Slap yourself out of this funk! It is a waste of time!


Will Today be Whiny Wednesday? Three of Swords Takes the Stage…

The Three of Swords is one of the most miserable cards in the Tarot, in my opinion. But don’t worry, it doesn’t foretell how things will be today.

Rather, it tells you what to stop doing today!

The Three of Swords indicates you are feeling disappointed by someone or something. Did someone not live up to your expectation? Did something not bring you the fulfillment it was supposed to?

Stop sniveling and get on with it!

Okay, maybe that’s a bit harsh. Sorry. You are feeling a little raw right now because it has become apparently clear that something/someone is not all it was cracked up to be. And that can hurt.

But it won’t last long. The best thing for you to do today is to avoid stewing in your own disappointment. If you catch yourself mentally rambling to yourself about how crummy something is, take a breath and think of kittens.

Three of Swords ~ Tarot Card for Tuesday

Tarot of the Pagan Cats by Lo Scarabeo

The Three of Swords is today’s Tarot card and although this is usually not everyone’s favorite card, this version is somewhat funny with a sulky cat on it! Your a bit pissed off about something today – that’s okay, just don’t let it run your day.

Normally this card represents heartache and feeling betrayed by someone (usually a lover), but I feel like it doesn’t really indicate anything that serious.

You may feel put out about something someone said or did. It was a minor thing, but it bugged you. Part of you kind of wants to wallow in your resentment and another part of you says its not worth it! Focus on something more positive.

This is one of those things that you will forget about in a couple of days, so indeed, focus on something more positive!

3 of Swords ~ Tarot Card for Wednesday

Wildwood Tarot

The Three of Swords Tarot card is the card of the day and it comes to remind us that letting go of hurt and resentment, whether from the past or present, is what will positively shift our spirits today.

The strongest message I get with this card is that when past hurt is not resolved or released, it re-manifests itself in our present lives. The players may be different, but the feelings are the same.

Any present betrayals of the heart are here to help you heal the past events as well as the current ones.

You may also get some clarity around your relationships today, as the Three of Arrows (aka Three of Swords) is all about seeing the heart of a relationship with a steady, focused gaze. Remember to treat yourself with the same kindness and gentleness that you show to others today 🙂
