@RexRed,
The three of swords - not the most joyous card - but I guess it's all part of living, loving and moving on. The heart - and the meaning of it -

Quote:
The heart is symbolic of emotion and beauty,


is very much a description of the essence of the person you appear to be on your threads - or am I wrong?

A more hopeful image perhaps?

Certainly not very positiv to get three swords in your heart.
Maybe it does not mean you will be hurt, but someone whom you know.
Is there or are there friend/s whom you think you need an outstreched hand, a telephonecall. an ear or just time together with you?
I think when we read tarot or something else or dream we should not always take it personal but think it could also mean our personal surronding, family, friends or just someone we know.

I recognize the card (3 of swords) as if I can personally identify with it.

I wrote this a few years ago as if it was an omen to help me understand the current times of my life.

The Castle of My Heart
My heart is an impenetrable fortress
Locked way high in the tower
The tokens of our love
Chastity and a vow to forever remain faithful
No matter who storms the gate
Be they friend or foe
I will not be moved
For I am a willing slave to your love
I have sworn allegiance to your crown
And I will live the rest of my days
Fulfilling this undying promise of my affection

So true! I like the following quote by Henri-Frederic Amiel - it helps me cope!

"You desire to know the art of living, my friend? It is contained in one phrase: make use of suffering."

I haven't picked a new card yet, partly out of dread and partly because I want the three of swords to impart more wisdom over time and introspection.

I am not afraid of doom and failure, over the years I have become quite comfortable with the idea.

It is like stage fright to me. I rarely am overcome with stage fright, I actually find the idea quite amusing.

But usually one is not required to perform in front of thousands of people from birth. There is usually a gradual working up to that point.

You perform for a few people, than a few hundred, then maybe if you are lucky a few thousand or more.

Getting used to crowds is something one usually works their way into.

I guess there are things I just don't want to discuss about my own fears.

Not sure if I will ever be ready. But here it goes...

Finding true love is not easy especially if you are health conscious. If I went to my doctor and told him I caught AIDS he would be so disappointed with me. I could not bear the shame...

Most men I find lie about their HIV status so if I ask them and they say they are HIV negative I take that as automatically a lie...

I trust no one. So unless they are willing to march down to the clinic and get tested with me I simply believe they are lying. By that time the romance has been taken out of the first encounter and such is life.

So my heart is an impenetrable fortress. I guess I am in love with my health over being with just anyone. Nothing like a one night stand and to also contract AIDS in the process. Now that would be like being dealt the 3 of swords for real...

So this card has given me pause for sure. The card of happiness and beauty (four of wands) seems like only an allure to become promiscuous and lose my inhibitions that have kept me safe and healthy for so long...

Damned if I do, damned if I don't...

@RexRed,
I don't know a lot about STDs, including AIDS, but I'd have thought that taking sensible precautions like not rushing into a sexual relationship until you get to know somebody a little better, and using condoms - practicing safe sex generally - would be much the same for a gay person as a heterosexual person?

One night stands, in this day and age, with so many sexually transmitted diseases around, aren't a good idea - no matter how attracted you are to another person. But nor is asking them to rush down to a doctor to test for AIDS - I can imagine that would rather pour cold water on any budding relationship!

Nor is being promiscuous the answer - not unless you want to risk your mental and physical good health. All you can do is try to pick decent guys to date - then if things get serious, discuss the AIDS fear with them, and see if they have similar concerns. It's amazing how the right person comes along when you least expect it - don't give up hoping!

I agree fully with vonny.
A dear relative of mine got AIDS from her husbond - now ex -
I wonder how many otther women got it from him. He was not the faithful type.
She is now married to a man, who does not have AIDS.

@RexRed,
The two of wands sounds okay to me- but perhaps I'm reading it the wrong way.

Tarot pick today, Two Of Wands AGAIN!!!

I will wait a bit contemplate the card once more then, consider picking another card...

You know that a tarot deck is quite big to be double picking cards as I do...

It is like the Tarot deck is saying to me, pick your cards with "certainty"... This is kinda scary... Smile

Give me an hour mebbe and I will choose my fate again... (with certainty)
