Three of Swords

A woman kneels with her arms crossed on a plinth decorated by gargoyles. She looks grief-stricken, and holds a small book. In the dark stormy sky above her floats a large brocade heart pierced by three swords.

My Interpretation: Melancholy and a broken heart.

Misery, sorrow and grief at the end of an affair or friendship. But take heart, time will ease the pain.

(Reversed: Dwelling on past sorrows may prevent you from moving on. Let go of the past, and the confusion and distress may disappear).

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've made it a bit more similar to the Rider-Waite card of a heart pirced by three swords in a stormy sky. I have added a grief-stricken woman and a plinth adorned with gargoyles.
