Three of Swords :-

 

 

Sorrow : Saturn : Libra

Three swords piercing a heart; cloud and rain behind.
Removal, absence, delay, division, rupture, dispersion, and all that the design signifies naturally, being too simple and obvious to call for specific enumeration.
Additional Meanings:
For a woman, the flight of her lover.
Reversed
Mental alienation, error, loss, distraction, disorder, confusion.
Additional Meanings:
A meeting with one whom the Querent has compromised; also a nun.
Sorrow means distress caused by loss, grief, disappointment or misfortune.
The Three of Swords show irreconcilable differences manifest as time goes on. You are unable to maintain the new sense of identity with the old situation – something has to give. The patches can no longer be patched up. Continue in the same way, and you will get ill.
The idea of division, of mutability, the idea of the airy quality of things, manifests itself in the Three of Swords, the Lord of Sorrow. Here one is reminded of the darkness of Binah, of the mourning of Isis; but this is not any vulgar sorrow dependent upon any individual disappointment or discontent. It is Weltschmerz, the universal sorrow; it is the quality of melancholy.
The Three of Swords denote sorrow and breakups.
