The Three of Swords: Reversed Meanings
The Golden Tarot Three’s
By nature the threes deal with creativity and growth. Like all tarot cards, this can go in different directions. Take the celebratory three of cups, for example, and contrast it with the dire and dramatic three of swords; some combinations are more constructive than others. Threes also indicate a turning point, moments that unfold after the director calls “action!” They’re active and dynamic unlike the more stationary twos. Because of this threes show times when change is afoot and the querent can harness the energy presented to them as they see fit. The threes, a number that’s all about creation: the act of making something from the union of two. The most obvious and oft-cited metaphor for this is birth – a child created from two partners.
The Golden Tarot Suit of Swords
The Suit of Swords is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups). The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: When upright, the Three of Swords suggests that you are confronting some type of separation, loss, severing of ties, or suffering that will lead to important realizations about your emotional life and aid you to grow in wisdom. This card depicts ‘stormy weather for the emotions.’ You may need to deal with feeling alienated, cut off, disappointed, grief-stricken, or alone. Because Swords are a mental and conflict-laden suit, you may be involved in disputes with friends or loved ones. A hoped-for meeting with someone you care about may not materialize. Sometimes this card points to a need for surgery, either for yourself or for someone close to you. When all is said and done, the suffering and unhappiness implied by this card offer an opportunity for a fresh start.
Creative Tarot: Its easy to see why artists in particular connect to the deck. Tarot readers tell storiesstories that might not always have a logical sense but have instead an intuitive meaning. The story is guided by a feeling, or perhaps the mood a color suggests to the reader, or strange coincidences in the pictures. (For instance, on one card, three figures are hunched over their work, so that might be relevant because . . .) That is a creative act. And so artists, used to working in that way, often take to the decks like ducks to water.
Complete Book of Tarot: Myth 13: Some tarot cards are really very ‘good’ and others are really very ‘evil.’
