Today I am going to write about the 3 of swords from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot deck by Ciro Marchetti.
3 is about group energy and therefore relations and interactions.
The Swords suit is Air, which rules matters of communication, strategy, thinking and strife.
Looking at the card I notice that only half of the face is showing.
We only have half of the picture.
I find this extremely interesting.
In most cases when there is a disagreement between two people we find out they have different versions of the same story.
We all process situations through the lenses of our personal beliefs, emotions, culture and life experience.
Next I notice the eye. It is blue, like my son’s eyes. At this moment we are upset with each other.
The person in the card is sad. A tear crosses the heart tattoo on her cheek, making it look like it is split in two.
The three swords floating in the air are located at the height of the eye, the ear and the mouth.
What we see, what we hear and what we say is a source of pain.
The hair is tightly braided. Those braids remind me of ropes and therefore bonds.
It is a fact that those we love can hurt us the most.
Why? Because they know us and because they matter to us.
Sometime the pain we inflict on others is accidental. We did not do it on purpose.
Other times we strike intentionally, particularly when we are hurt. We want to spread the pain around.
What can we learn from this card?
Relations are fragile. Words are powerful and should be used with care.
Pain is a heavy energy. It is not wise or kind to spread it around.
Two wrongs don’t make it right.
