UPRIGHT

Absence - Division - Depression - Separation - Heartache - Upheaval - Sorrow

Upset - Disorder - Confusion

It is time to let go of things that you know are no longer positively serving you in your life. For example, if a relationship which is no longer positive and growing and is causing unhappiness must be allowed to die a natural death, regardless of the short-term pain. 
There is a focus on separation and loss at this time, you may be experiencing difficulties in a relationship that could lead to separation. The cause of these difficulties is likely to be jealousy or interference by another party.

There are times when the 3 of Swords pops up as a positive. In these cases, it means that something has been cleared to make way for something else; sometimes this may be a new opportunity.

Although the situation has been emotionally devastating, sometimes it is better to know the truth than it is to live in a lie. 

REVERSED

Transition - Difficulties - Recovery - Moving On

The Three of Swords reversed indicates that have faced a recent loss, a break-up or a moment of grief. You may be still recovering from this, and your emotions have not completely calmed, making it difficult to move on. Although you may still be thinking of your past suffering, this card may be a signal that it's time to let go and look forwards towards life ahead of you, because there is much for you to enjoy.

Many don’t see this, and they end up being immersed in their own pain for too long, delaying their own recovery process. Don’t focus too much on what happened, renew your emotions and gather your courage. The reversed Three of Swords card is here to let you know that all difficult moments pass - they are not there to stay, and when we fall, we can also rise again.
