Threes are power cards; reflecting our activity and business. Threes can indicate three people involved in a relationship situation. The Holy Trilogy, the Three Musketeers, the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone. Another example of three energy is the mother, father and a new baby. Threes are where spirit works in mysterious ways and it reflects how friends and family support us and surprise us through their actions.
Three of Cups: Surprises of the Heart
Three of Cups can indicate a surprise is underway, or solace and rescue of the heart is available to you now. The type of surprise in store for you may be divined by looking at the other cards that are drawn in the reading. Some surprises are wonderful, like an engagement or an invitation. This card may also imply that you need to give gifts and surprise people. When the Three of Cups shows up you might be getting good news which can take any form, for example, a wedding invitation.
Three of Staves: Success
The Three of Staves is the success card. This card shows that people are being successful in their own right. This card can mean that people don’t need to work as a team, as they’re now capable of achieving their own goals. The advice of this card is to be successful, regardless of what’s happening around you now. It doesn’t matter what other people think, do, or say, it’s time to shine! Proceed through life with a big smile and a winning attitude!
Three of Swords: Division and Separation
The Three of Swords can indicate division, separation and heartbreak. Every change in life comes with a form of loss. People have to leave a job in order to get a better job. Some relationships dissolve in order for a better relationship to come about. Sometimes it can be heartbreaking to leave a place, however leaving has to take place in order to move to a better place. This card may mean that mediation is required and that you are speaking a different love language to your partner. Are three people involved in your relationship? This card may indicate that a well-meaning friend or family member is actually making a relationship situation worse rather than better. Sometimes advice needs to come from specialists! Generally “three is a crowd” is the statement now for all relationships. The mind has come before the heart in this situation, and sometimes that’s a good thing.
Three of Pentacles: Perfectionism
This strong and stable earth card shows people want to do the very best. As this card is a doing card in the earth element, it may indicate people wanting to purchase property. The Three of Pentacles implies perfectionism. If you are a perfectionist, then you may get wonderful things done each day and feel very proud of yourself, or you may never start anything as it won’t be perfect, so why bother? The message if you’ve received the Three of Pentacles is near enough is sometimes good enough and just get the job done. This card can mean that everything is perfect, or that people are being too harsh on themselves and everyone around them now. People need to remember that nothing is ever going to be the way I want it to be, so I will aim to do it the best I can, rather than make it perfect. Life will be easier if people try not to judge things around themselves too harshly.
