If you suspect that you are cheating in your relationship, consulting a tarot deck is not a bad idea. After all, Tarot is intended to provide spiritual guidance and insight into situations that may affect you. While it may not have exact answers, it can help you decide how to proceed, whether your course of action confronts your partner or waits for more substantial evidence. If you’re drawing cards on your own, there are a few tarot cards that can indicate cheating that you should watch out for.
In a standard tarot deck, the cards are split into major and minor arcana. Often people look for major arcana cards when they inquire about major life changes, such as starting a new relationship or marriage. But when it comes to infidelity, the cards you want to watch out for are actually found in the minor arcana.
The minor arcana are divided into four colors: wands, cups, pentacles, and swords. Like a typical card game, each suit has numbers and court cards. According to Davida Rappaport, tarot reader and spiritual counselor, swords are not exactly the most positive cards to bring in a love reading, as they are typically associated with thought and pain.
Drawing court cards (King, Queen, Knight, and Page) along with cards that can represent infidelity can be the confirmation you need to know that your partner is infidelity. That said, here are the three tarot cards that can indicate cheating in a relationship, according to Rappaport.
Three of swords
Just one look at the Three of Swords is enough to make you feel uncomfortable. According to Rappaport, the card is considered the tarot card of divorce, separation, stalemate and termination. “Because the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) decks and its clones show a heart with three swords in it, yes, that could be a love triangle or, you guessed it, cheating,” she says. “It’s always best to see court cards next to it in a reading so you can confirm this.”
Seven of Swords
In the tarot, the seven of swords is commonly referred to as the “thief of swords”. That’s why readers often see it as a card about infidelity, especially in a love reading. “In the RWS decks and its clones, the person in the picture is trying to get away with a few swords, while leaving behind some that he doesn’t need,” Rappaport says. “The most important thing is that he looks over his shoulder so he doesn’t get caught.” If you draw this card along with a few court cards, it could be a message that someone is doing something they are trying to hide.
10 of swords
Like the Three of Swords, the 10 of Swords doesn’t exactly give off the most positive vibes. On the map, a person is lying on the ground with 10 swords in the back. According to Rappaport, this could mean that someone is figuratively stabbed in the back. Drawing this card in your love reading can also indicate that there may be an end in your future.
