Three of Swords

We failed to cope with reality, we did not take care of the problems we had identified and consequently we experience the expected failure.

Three of SwordsSince we ignored and disengaged ourselves from the tough reality we faced in Two of Swords, we now experience the results. The Three of Swords represents true pain and sorrow. It deals with loss, suffering and hardship. We suffer due to our earlier negligence to deal with the problems in our lives. This is not the case of someone being suddenly laid off. Rather, all the signs that our job was in danger were there but we simply ignored them.

As a card representing the future, The Three of Swords usually predicts bad things. Three of Swords is a result of continuous negligence to deal with the issues in our lives but we need to remember that at the time of the reading we are still in the situation of Two of Swords – so if we act quickly we can still make a difference.

It is important to understand that despite our pain and suffering the process we experience is crucial to our self development and it will eventually lead us to personal growth that will change our lives for the better. Although we are in pain we can find some consolation knowing that it was not in vain.

Areas of particular relevance: Being Heartbroken, self destruction, ignoring warnings, inability to carry things through to fruition.

Three of Cups

We worked hard and succeeded. Now it is crucial that we take the time to celebrate so we do not stop the flow of abundance.

Three of CupsAfter we had completed a long process, worked hard, or persistently courted an idea, our faith and devotion to the cause has finally paid off. We have reached a milestone of success and basically got verification that all is well. In this card the flow is renewed and we sense what it was that we missed before. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief and start celebrating our success. Although we still have a long way to go we have reached an important milestone that has to be acknowledged and celebrated.

The Three of Cups emphasizes that we need to be joyful as it is an important part of our relationship with the universe. If we do not celebrate we will stop receiving the abundance we seek. Sometimes when we find a new job, a new mate or get good news, we are reluctant to make it public so we do not jinx it. This card calls upon us to get our emotions out into the open, to celebrate and share the good news since it is a very important to our ability to connect to the plenty in life.

Three of pentacles

We are confident in our position in life, a perception which is shared by people in our immediate surroundings, such as employer, family and friends who reward us accordingly.

Three of pentaclesThe Three of Coins is a joyous card which indicates a true cause for a celebration. We receive both an acknowledgement for our hard-gained skills, as well as tangible compensation in the form of a monetary prize or some other benefit.

After discovering our needs, becoming a professional and learning how to enjoy our occupation, we can build ourselves a solid foundation in life. Thanks to our talent, focus and persistence we are now prospering and enjoying the abundance life has to offer.

The Three of Coins is a blessing for relationships: like the Three of Wands it indicates the understanding and acceptance of the other party as the “one” for us.  But the Three of Coins indicates taking a step further such as moving-in together, tying the knot, or having children.

We have completed our quest for learning and self-discovery. We learned new skills and had other people acknowledge our potentials. Now, all paths of life are ours to pursue.

Three of WandsThe Three of Wands represents the results of the Two of Wands, which had started the process of our self-discovery and personal fulfillment. In this joyous card we get approval for our talent and abilities. The people in our immediate surroundings –such as peers and colleagues – acknowledge our skills, accept us as part of their group and cooperate with us, thus helping us reach our goal.

We have completed our initial training and are now moving forward with renewed energy toward our goal. However, like other situations in which we complete a learning process and are certified (e.g. becoming an attorney or a physician) we are still at the beginning of the road and have much work ahead of us. Therefore, the success indicated by this card is only the first milestone in a long-term journey.

In a relationship this card is especially blessed since it indicates the understanding and acceptance of the other party as the “one” for us.
