The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:

Three swords pierce a large heart. Stormy clouds rain on the improbable scene. The image calls to mind the "Sacred Heart" of the Catholic faith.

The Meaning of the Tarot Card:

Heartbreak, betrayal, division, dispersion, a stop to the natural order of things. Emotions are being felt very strongly at this time. A period of reconciliation needs to follow. Painful loss. A life-changing event. All other plans need to be reconsidered in the face of whatever caused this calamity. It is interesting to note that the heart still looks whole and strong, despite the fact that it has been pierced by three swords - there is a possibility of recovery from the situation, even though it may not seem this way right now.
