Mythic Tarot - Three Swords

Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus kill King Agamemnon in his bath. Each holds a sword that pierces the King’s heart while a third sword stands upright with its point in the King’s heart. Brooding skies can be seen in the background.

  • the strife or conflict of the Two has erupted and come out into the open
  • heartbreak or separation has revealed itself as an initial completion
  • a release of energy in the form of movement from stagnation and tension
  • whatever has happened is necessary in order to reach the eventual creative end
  • something set in motion in the past comes to fruition in the present
  • how the consequences of human choice(s) work themselves out over time, sooner or later resulting in heartbreak or conflict
  • relief because since the poison has been released, there is now a possibility for healing in the future
  • buried resentments that burst through at last
  • a creative, if unpleasant, step that makes an ultimate resolution possible
  • sorrow that’s accompanied by the recognition that things have to be that way
  • a sense of vision and understanding that makes the pain easier to bear
Random Thoughts
  • Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
  • action and reaction
  • Metaphors/Proverbs:
    • “curses, like chickens, come home to roost” means that people who do wrong ultimately have to suffer the consequences of their deeds
    • “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword” means that those who engage in aggression or violence will meet their death in a similar way

Keyword/phrase that I came up with in my workbook on 14Mar92 was "open conflict".
