Vendredi: Three of Spades

Today's card follows the general rule with the Suit of Spades: bad news.  Associated with the Tarot Suit of Swords, Spades are on the whole are a difficult indicator in any spread.  Honestly, though many cartomancers won’t say this out-right, the fewer of them I see on the table in front of me the easier I feel my job as a reader will be.  It is true that any bad news can be mitigated, but good news is always far more welcome.

That said, the Three of Spades generally foreshadows strife in relationships.  Tears, fights, separations and even adultery are not unheard of depending on the reading.  Because the card indicates a general upheaval in the querent’s environment, the usual thought is that the significant other is in question here but that is not always the case.  The card may be speaking to other important relationships in the family, at work or at school.  Be sure to check the cards around this one and ask your querent open ended questions.  The last thing you want to do is give them unnecessary anxiety about a cheating spouse or the loss of a job.

If absolutely no relationship is “in the cards”, the Three of Spades may speak to national or international strife such as government upheaval or civil war.  This is a far reaching prediction, of course, and one that will rarely be seen in any reading ever.  It is a good idea to know all the potential meanings of any given card, though, and the Three of Spades certainly has global potential.

And with that, another Friday of cartomancy is in the bag, mes amis.  Enjoy the rest of your day.  Vendredi heureux ~

Wow, there's nothing good to be said about that card, Pauline.

As I said, it's not one I like to see in a reading, mine or anyone elses.
