Today’s card is the Three of Swords, sometimes known as Knives or Daggers. The positive side of this card would be the ending of draining or frustrating associations, to become free again. One message this card brings is to cut some things loose. In spite of sentimental memories and emotional attachments, we need to let go of relationships that either cannot live up to their promise or have outlived the pleasure and support we once found in them. The Three of Swords can also signify separation or the breakup of a significant relationship, including the tragic emotions that come along with such an event. Some cards show the horizon filled with storm clouds and flashing lightning, indicating a stormy end to an emotional situation.
This card appears when it might be healthier to RUN, RUN AWAY! Disentangle yourself and start fresh. Don’t be afraid to be you; strike out on your own and become more independent. Separate yourself from people and forces you do not feel compatible with. Grow a thicker skin. Sometimes we end up in bad situations or relationships because we don’t have the courage to simply say NO! Use your creativity and imagination to seek out situations where the way you see things makes sense to those around you. Move towards those who can embrace and appreciate your talents and all you have to contribute. The Universe wants you to be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Stop waiting for others’ permission or acknowledgement and just DO IT!
May you be truly blessed by the Lord and Lady on this Beltane Day and may you seek a union that is loving, healthy, and balanced! So mote it be!
