This particular card is usually associated with tragedy. It comes up in spreads for people that are dealing with loss as of recent events. This is usually more of an emotional tragedy and not a physical one, so it represents unrest of the mind. You are left bereft and hurt in the wake of whatever it is that has occurred to you. No matter when you get this card it is always going to be negative and indicate negative feelings which aren’t soon to go away.
When the three of swords appears in the relationship area of a tarot spread, it almost always has to do with a break-up. Of course, the level of tragedy will directly correspond to how happy you were in the relationship in the first place. If you were merely in a convenient or purely physical relationship, then you probably wouldn’t see this card, as it only comes to people that are really broken up about it. Perhaps this card would also come up if your lover were to have died or been seriously injured.
Because this has to deal with heartbreaking tragedy, when the three of swords is found on the area of your tarot spread that has to do with your career, what this usually means is that your career was ended. Perhaps you were fired from your job. When it is the level of tragedy that is conveyed by this card though, then your job may not have been the only thing that was hurt due to your misfortune.

Money is not everything and you may have to start back from the beginning and sacrifice a lot, but it will not destroy you. You will make it through.
This card is worst when it appears on the health and happiness area of a tarot spread because it usually means a great physical loss is in store.
