Three of Cups and Three of Swords combo interpretation

Three of cups and Three of swords tarot combination gives you a peek at an event in your future. It will arise from the combined effect of: (I) CELEBRATION (effect of Three of cups) and (II) HEARTBREAK (effect of Three of swords). What’s the advice of this pair? The Three of cups indicates pleasant times with friends, perhaps spent celebrating a special occasion. There may be something good happening in your life that you feel the need to commemorate. The Three of swords indicates that this is also a bittersweet moment. This is a card of heartbreak and intense emotional pain. Maybe you’ve left a relationship that was bad for you. Whatever the case, lean into the sweet side of things and allow the bitterness to fade.

What’s the meaning of this combo for love and relationships?

When it comes to the meaning of the Three of Cups and Three of Swords in love and relationships, we can see that their combination is quite unfavorable. The event that arises from this combination will be a mix of celebration and heartbreak. While the Three of Cups suggests pleasant times with friends, perhaps spent celebrating a special occasion, the Three of Swords indicates intense emotional pain.

However, despite this negative outlook on their combined effect on love and relationships, individually these cards have different interpretations. In my opinion, the influence of the Three of Cups on love is quite good and favorable while that of the Three Swords is moderately bad.

The energy carried by the Three of Cups card invokes strong platonic bonds between people rather than romantic connections. Therefore pursuing someone as a romantic partner when you draw this card may not be advisable at that moment. Instead, it would be better to focus on building stronger bonds with friends or acquaintances around you.

On the other hand, when drawing the Three Swords card in relation to love matters may signal an upcoming separation or heartbreak which could lead to self-reflection for personal growth but also cause temporary emotional turmoil.

In conclusion, while these two cards together are considered unfavorable for love and relationships due to their combined effects indicating both celebration and heartbreaks, separately drawn they suggest positive platonic bonding (Three cups) or painful loss experienced through separations (Three swords).
