Three of Swords Tarot Card Symbolism

What is the meaning of symbols in Three of Swords Tarot Card?

The Three of Swords Tarot card most often depicts a heart pierced by three swords. Repeating its pain, rain falls from the clouds in the background. This card reminds us that the world is based on contradictions, and its rational comprehension, like cognition in general, is associated with sorrow: any law, even the law of being, is harsh and imposes responsibility on a person. But the rain is about to end: the sun is peeping through the clouds.
The symbolism of the card is simple, and its basic meaning is obvious. Three swords are too many for one heart. In addition to heartache, the Arcana can mean bitter truth, sacrifice, a wise but difficult decision, exalted love and a passionate desire to achieve something.
