Heartache is the Three of Swords love Tarot meaning. All that is emotionally painful is associated with this card. Your relationship is failing and, to make matters worse, other people are involving themselves in your conflict.
There is no getting around the fact that the Three of Swords represents sadness. Any Tarot reader knows that when this card makes an appearance, things are going to be difficult for you. In fact, when you see the Three of Swords, you can pretty much guarantee that your emotional pain is why you have decided to perform a reading on this matter.
Emotional anguish can come in many forms, but the majority of the time, this card refers to a break-up or divorce. That’s not to say that this break up will last forever or is indefinite; you will be able to see if it is or isn’t in a more future part of your spread.
It is a common occurrence for the Three of Swords to represent infidelity. The third sword symbolizes an outsider coming in-between you and your partner’s relationship.
When the Three of Swords doesn’t represent relationship trouble, it can symbolize an individual who will involve themselves in a different drama. You will feel betrayed.
Finally, the Three of Swords can represent infertility or a miscarriage from the past or in the future. If you’re reading others, remember to be considerate when predicting death and miscarriage. I advise that you stay clear away from predicting future miscarriages as this can cause unneeded emotional trauma and stress.

Three of Swords Feelings Tarot Meaning
There will be love readings where you will ask what the feelings of your lover are and the Three of Swords will come up. Similarly, the Three of Swords will also appear in a ‘What they want to happen’ Tarot spread position. From experience, I would say that this represents the fact that your lover subconsciously is the type of person who enjoys the drama of a break-up. In the end, they will want to play the victim because they have a ‘poor me’ attitude.
