It could be due to a partner’s lack of honesty and commitment, or even their dishonesty and dishonor towards you. It is also a sign of running away, as if your partner is not willing to try and repair the damage that has been done.

This combination of tarot cards could be a warning sign of what is to come. It could mean that the two of you are no longer connecting and that there is a deep betrayal in the relationship that leads to its end.

This can be especially damaging to your job and financial prospects. Your motivation for achieving your goals may have taken a hit, causing you to be less productive, or even taking time off from work to recover from the difficult emotions.

The 7 Of Swords tarot card further complicates the situation.

These actions can be impossible to overcome, especially if the person taking advantage of you is someone you trust and thought you could rely on.

What does 3 Of Swords and 7 Of Swords mean together for your health?

When considering the combined meanings of the 3 of Swords and the 7 of Swords tarot cards, the health implications are incredibly heavy. These two cards together suggest a period of intense emotional and physical stress.

The 3 of Swords represents heartbreak, divorce, loss, depression, and surgery. This card symbolizes the sense of sadness and despair that accompany such situations. It could signal that some sort of painful breakup, divorce, or death of a loved one has occurred. It could also reflect a medical procedure or surgery that was undergone and the emotional toll that it has taken.

The 7 of Swords echos the same thought with its message of theft, betrayal, dishonesty, and running away. This card is an ominous warning that someone close to you may be acting in a dishonest way, or that you could be a victim of theft or betrayal. It also implies that you are feeling the need to run away from a situation in order to protect yourself. This could be a reflection of your emotional state, feeling unable to stay in a situation any longer due to the heartache that it has caused.

The two cards together suggest that a person is going through a particularly difficult period in their life. The combination of heartbreak, betrayal and loss can be incredibly draining and can leave a person feeling exhausted and broken. The physical and emotional effects of such traumas can take a toll on one’s health and it is important to give oneself time to heal. It is also important to reach out to family and friends for support in order to make it through this difficult time.

The meaning of the cards will depend on what kind of reading you are doing and the question you asked the deck. This is a guide covering the general meanings of the cards and how they relate to each other.

Common 2-card spreads

Whilst it’s great to know who these two cards interact with each other, it’s important to note that the meaning will depend on the context of your spread

The most common 2 card spreads I recommend to newer readers are:

  • The 2 card cross (otherwise known as “The Fool’s Journey”)
  • The 2 card “Yes or No”

“The Fool’s Journey”

Setup: The two card cross is where you place two cards face up, one placed vertically and with one laying horizontally over

Interpretation: The 2 cards represent a “situation” and a “challenge”. The first card will describe the situation you are in with the second horizontal card being the “challenge” crossing you (literally crossing you in this case!)

Reading: Using the overviews in this guide is a great way to start. First, look at the meanings of the 2 cards, and see how they might relate either as your “situation” or “challenge”. Once you have that you can look at the general overview for how the two cards interact with each other.

The benefit of this spread is that it can give clarity when you’re feeling uncertain or anxious. Once you have clarity of thought, and a strong idea of what your challenge is you can find solutions to help your situation

The 2 card “Yes or No”

Setup: The 2 card “Yes or No” is where you place two cards face up side by side, whilst asking your deck a “yes or no” question.

Interpretation: Each card in a tarot deck has a “yes” or a “no” meaning. Look at the meanings of each card, and you will have your answer.

The benefit of this is you get a stronger yes or no compared to a single card draw. You may find you often get a mix of “yes or no”, and this is fine. It simply means there is doubt, or things are not yet clear.

Yes or No meaning

Both 3 Of Swords and 7 Of Swords mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw 3 Of Swords and 7 Of Swords the answer to your question is “NO”.

The “Yes” and “No” meanings can differ from reader to reader. The meanings here are based on what I believe are the generally accepted definitions.

What does 3 Of Swords mean?

When it comes to health, the Three of Swords Tarot card reveals a sense of physical pain, suffering, and emotional distress. This card can indicate that a person is going through a surgery, a medical diagnosis, and possibly a long process of recovery. Even if a person is physically healthy, this card can reveal that there is an emotional pain that needs to be addressed and healed. The Three of Swords can also represent a loss of a supportive physical connection with someone and a sense of loneliness that can be hard to overcome.

In terms of finances, the Three of Swords Tarot card can be a warning sign of financial hardship. This card can be an indicator of debts, losses, and difficult financial decisions that need to be made. This can be difficult to face, but this card can also be a sign that a person is being given the chance to redefine their understanding of finances and take steps to bring stability.

In relationships, the Three of Swords Tarot card represents a deep heartbreak, a difficult separation and even a possible divorce. This card can represent a breakdown of communication, a lack of understanding and a sense of emotional despair. This card can also represent the need for a person to make a tough decision to heal, even if it is hard to do so. The Three of Swords Tarot card can be a sign that someone needs to open their heart to the possibilities of change, acceptance and healing.

What does 7 Of Swords mean?

Health- For health, the 7 of Swords Tarot card could represent a decision to not take care of oneself. It may signify a lack of self-care and neglect, or a short-term reliance on quick fixes and neglecting long-term solutions. Ignoring health issues and not taking proper preventative measures could be a consequence of this card, leading to illness and overall poor health.

Finances- When it comes to finances, the 7 of Swords Tarot card could indicate a tendency to make rash decisions without considering the consequences. It could be associated with impulsive spending, or taking risks without properly researching them. It could also represent stealing, financial manipulation and getting involved in shady deals in order to make money.

Relationships- In relationships, the 7 of Swords Tarot card could represent deceit and betrayal. It could be indicative of a manipulative partner or someone who is constantly looking for ways to get ahead of their partner. It could also point to a lack of trust in relationships, as well as a tendency to be dishonest or suspicious. It could advise taking extra care to ensure that relationships are built on honesty and trust.


Understanding how the meaning of a reading changes once you start involving more than one card can be tricky. This will come with time and practice, however I hope this guide on what your cards might be telling you when you draw 3 Of Swords and 7 Of Swords has helped you.
