Thoth Deck Tarot:THREE OF SWORDS-SORROW

The Three of Swords-Sorrow, represents Binah in the realm of Air and with the attribution of Saturn in Libra, Saturn throws the scales of Libra off of balance in order that  to rebalanced them in a "better way".  Here Mother, is represented as the Darkness of the Great Sea of Binah.
Thus, the card is dark and heavy illustrating the "Womb of Chaos" . Here the Great Mother's passion to create, is disturbed  by the fact that her beautiful children see themselves as monsters, causing great sorrow in the Heart of Binah; a sorrow that a mother of a murdering child can understand.
Thus, the sorrow card is more about the Melancholy of the Abyss than a personal human sorrow, although the position in the reading may state personal sorrow, held secretly and causing a perversion.
In the Three of Swords, we see the Sword of the Magician, cutting the junction of two short swords, destroying the Rose with its impact. In the background, storms are brewing in the implacable night. The Sword of the Magician is Will, and here the Will-to-be is perverted by Will-not-to be...the will of a "wanna-be".
The Three of Swords, is also Binah in Yetzirah, placing the influence of Binah in the Astral World. Astrologers know that Saturn is a very influential planet, sometimes called "The Great Destroyer" and sometimes the "Great Initiator". Thus, though the  presence of Saturn usually means pain and hardship, it isn't evil, as through suffering we may encounter the Dark Sterile Mother (Crone). From her we learn life's most important lessons.
When the Three of Swords is thrown, the querent is experiencing or will be experiencing, unhappiness, sorrow, tears, disruption, interruption, separation and quarreling, that have lasted or shall last for 3 weeks or 3 months. There will be or has been the sowing of discord, strife, mischief making, and yet , mirth in evil pleasures. Because of the influence of Saturn being both "destroyer and initiator", the can also be faithfulness in promises,  honesty in money, the motivation being both selfish and dissipated , yet sometimes generous.
Now if the card is accompanied by the more Spiritually inclined Major Arcana, the Three of Swords, empathizes the deep Spiritual Melancholy of the Crone, that the querent is experiencing. It becomes known to the " Mediums" in us, that humankind.s persistent self-destructive behavior, as a choice over Love, greatly Saddens the Great Mother.  Because of this behavior, She cannot see us, as Her perspective is Love, not fear, we become lost children to Her, and she grieves deeply. Only through the perspective of  Love of Self and Those Selves around us, can we approach Her...but then the celebration of being "Seen" by Her, dissipates any sorrow! When the prodigal comes home, She will indeed "kill the fated calf".
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Just want to thank you for the work you're doing and for the clear explanations, Eli! This particular card helped me find a breakthrough in my understanding of tarot and my own nature. Now I just strive to be a simple man and appreciate all I get until I reach my Universe. Thanks again!

Ivan you are welcome. A deeper understanding of Self, makes us simple in our wants and doings. We just love being----doing, is an expression of that love. Being you, is why you are built to be. A simple man, is the Image of God. Blessings of the Great Mother, and may you live long and prosper.

Hi there Eli! How are you? I read this article and it was great as usual! My only real question is what do you mean by being seen by the great mother dissipates all sorrow?? As a lord of sorrow my self I am interested to say the least hahaha. Also,what does it symbolize when you say she shall, "Kill the fated calf."?

Hi Tyler, the Great Mother's "seeing", is the real infinite divine Child you are. She is the Seeing of imagination, the image-maker.Therefore, when you have traveled the deep abyss of sorrow, fearlessly, you will be seen/recognized by her...as she built you, rather than what you think "you see as yourself". "The Womb with a View", never has forgotten you and can only "see" you when you are the "you" she made. The illusions necessary to build a self out of Crystallized light, hide us enough as it is, but then to adorn this "solid light" with sequins of cultural identity, identity not worthy of your true image, really makes us "invisible" to the Great Mother of the Divine Creative. From sorrow the universes of I AM was born, but by giving birth to the "microcosm" or "Me", joy is experienced as the "Joy of Being Me", to exist is to live as thought,but to live is to make Living Thought. The Divine Plays through us. Life is but a great "Sand Box" for the every young infinite child to play in. "To Kill the Fatted calf" (sorry about the misspelling) is a reference to the banquet put on for the lost but returning son in the Parable of the "Prodigal son" in the bible. When one is "recognized" by the Divine Womb there is a most joyous celebration that one feels in their whole body... Swelling out of the Navel Chakra up into the Crown, it's called Samahdi or the "ecstasy" by those of the Mysteries. Thank you for your continued interest and most interesting comments. May you live long and prosper.

Thank you again for the sharing of your wisdom as well as your encouragement! :D This makes a lot of sense, that being said I have much to ponder. I must work towards my divine child once more. As well as traverse the abyss a few more times. I have done it once so far to converse with my guardian angel and it taught me much about my own sorrows, as well as my true strength. Even to an extent, how to go about my life's path. Thank you again and have a great day Eli!
