Tuesday Tarot Prompt

Today’s card is the Three of Swords, from the Dark Wood Tarot by Sasha Graham and Abigail Larson. This card most often signifies a loss or a betrayal, a source of grief or heartbreak.

The image is of three swords piercing a heart; swords and heart both hang on a spiderweb, and the spider waits patiently below.

The Suit of Swords is associated with the mind: reason, intellect, and ambition. Here, the mind has come into conflict with the heart, or there is some kind of painful schism between logic and emotion that is holding both trapped, and has the potential to devour you. Is the betrayal you’re struggling with external, or are you failing the truth of your feelings? Attend to your emotions, and tend your wounded heart.
