3 of Spades and Cartomancy
Cartomancy is a divination game in which we use playing cards and interpret their meaning. It is similar to that of tarot, however, tarot uses pictures and illustrations to express the energy of the card, whereas cartomancy just uses the playing card itself. Cartomancy divides the deck into suites of numbers and elements, which depicts the energy of each card.
In cartomancy, spades are the equivalent swords and the elements of air. Therefore, it is safe to say that spades represent direct and concise communication. It is the manifestation of air in its purest form. This meaning that it can be a little bit harsh and in your face at times.
In numerology, the number 3 symbolizes communication. It is the foundation of language and all that we used to express ourselves. It also can depict a person or situation who is constantly busy and unable to see things outside of their world. It brings a playful, magnetic, and all-around positive vibe. However, its meaning changes when paired with the spade suit.

When we see the number 3 in readings and other forms of divination, it often represents a third-party. This could mean that there is a cheating situation going on, someone giving advice behind the scenes was interfering with a relationship, or a dynamic that is triangular in some respect. It is a caution to the querent that there is someone pulling strings whom they may not be aware of. Therefore, they should take a step back and assess the situation from all sides in order to figure out who is the puppet master controlling the strings.
More so than not, in cartomancy, this card relates to infidelity and a relationship ending on bad terms. Instead of fighting to make the relationship work, you shouldn’t have to argue for affection. Yes, you will experience a major heartbreak and pain in the current time. But, as time moves on you will begin to feel a lot better about the situation and yourself.
