Today I have, 3 of Swords (sorrow) Air. 9 of Wands (Strength) Fire. 7 of Disks (Failure) Earth. In a positional spread this triad could seem a bit puzzling. But in the elemental linear spread it all becomes clear.
Air and Earth elementally cancel each other out. So we are left with the central card, 9 of Wands in a strong position.
This is my reading of the situation. From a position of fear and loss you have now gathered the strength to move on. At the moment you are resting after an arduous battle, and have conquered past fears. However, do make this a brief rest as you do have energy left to go forward with what you have learned and the strength you have gained.
