3 of [ / ] Spades
The Imperfect Bond:
-- Malicious & Hating

Blood and malice from profane
Hatred, killing, with a bane
Abomination, sadness and sorrow
Misery and abuse with no tomorrow

Malicious sorrow hating
Profane obscenity cursing

A mutilated cat hangs from a rope. Two swords are cut through him, a third is being wiped clean of blood by the mutilator. This is the card of hate. The duel of the previous card is over, the divorce is final, and bitter hatred is all that is left. Hate, hate, hate!

This person is vulgar and profane. He/she has nothing but hostility for everyone. This is the card of rage.

Killing a person’s cat shows the level of cruelty and malice this card is capable of. The voodoo doll also denotes hatred, with a special bent toward cruelty. The recipient of this cruelty will feel great sorrow. They will writhe in pain, like the cat did wile it was dying. They may even learn to hate too. Wouldn’t that be great? Then we could hate each other ‘till the end of time.

This is the card of sadness. Sadness over a horrific situation.

You will be hated. You'll end up killing someone. You will be sad and live in misery.

Don't hate. Don't be bitter. Don't do something that will make everyone hate you. Don't be cruel. Suppress the urge to kill. Don't abuse people. Don't abuse yourself. Don't beat yourself up. Don't be so sad.

Where there is no love, all faults are seen.
Nothing cuts deeper than an unkind word.
