Everything about the 3 of Hearts in Cartomancy

3 of hearts meaning

What is Cartomancy?

Cartomancy is a divination system much like tarot cards and Lenormand that uses a poker deck to decipher one’s future. Cartomancy is also used in astrology as each card means something on the astrological chart. Known as a popular game played in the royal courts, cartomancy goes back to the 1300s. It was not until the 18th and 19th centuries during the Spiritualism boom that made a massive comeback. Unlike tarot, cartomancy readings are straightforward. The poker deck used in cartomancy is not as intuitive and is not rooted in magic or the subconscious like the tarot is.

The questions you would ask the cards would be more direct and not as deep as you would ask in the tarot. Each suit pertains to something and each card has a separate meaning. Spades represent the future and challenges. Hearts represent feelings, the home, and relationships. Clubs are all about good fortune. Diamonds always deal with finances. The way each card is laid out will form a sentence with another card.

Type of Cartomancy Readings

Single Card
This is a simple yes or no type of reading. Very simple and direct answers are advised for this. Think of this also as a way to ask how your day will go.

Triple Card Spread

This is a past / present / future spread, although it deals with more in depth divination you will most likely just get hints and facts, nothing more. You might get one small detail or piece of advice from this.

Celtic Cross Spread

This spread will be a very detailed view of the past and will give you more descriptive markers to look out for. The cards go in the same order as they would in a tarot celtic cross spread. In a reading like this, you will most likely get physical descriptions and timing so make sure to take lots of notes!

Of course there is always a chance your reader will pick up on more as these cards can be a gateway to something more in-depth that needs translation from a psychic advisor.

Suit of Hearts

Now that we know the suit of hearts deals with emotions, love, and relationships we can deep dive into the suit itself. The Jack, King, and Queen are always representative of someone with light features such as blonde hair and blue eyes. The suit of hearts is red which tells us most of the cards in this suite are positive. In cartomancy, red means positive and black means negative. Depending on where the card lands in the spread it will give you better context of what is going on.

Number 3 in Cartomancy

The number 3 always represents expansion. This is usually determined once again based on what cards it is sitting next to and whether or not it is in the beginning, middle, or end. Your reader will also use their intuition to tell you what is happening as the cards are also speaking to them.

What does the 3 of Hearts mean?

The Three of Hearts is a warning! Be very careful about your feelings here. This could mean that someone else has entered the picture of that something could happen to make your relationship less enjoyable. This card can also mean that you will succeed at a project or that something will come to an end in a good way. Once again, this always depends on the cards they are sitting next to. For example, if this card is surrounded by spades, you’re probably in a love triangle. If it is surrounded by clubs, you will probably amp up your sex life or meet someone new. One thing you can count on for this card is to be vigilant of new opportunities and people heading your way. Expansion can also mean that you are going to get help or that something new is on the way to help you in this moment.

3 of Hearts Reversed

Reversals are subjective to the advisor you are seeing. Some think that a reversal of a card is the shadow aspect. For example, the three of hearts in reverse can mean that no expansion is occurring in one’s love life or that some blockage is present. For others, they will just flip the card over and go to the original meaning. The context surrounding the cards will always say the final word.
