Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Today's card is the Three of Cups, a card of celebration and joy. This card comes from my brand new deck, the Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti. I LOVE this deck!
The suit of Cups is about emotions and feelings, while Threes deal with creation, growth and expansion.
The energy of the Three of Cups is about bringing people together for fun and celebration. This could be a small intimate gathering with a few close friends all the way up to a large party (wedding, births, baptisms...large, fun gatherings).
As Rachel Pollack said in her book, "Tarot Wisdom: Spiritual Teachings and Deeper Meanings," (a very nice gift from my very thoughtful father -- a fellow tarot enthusiast):
"My own theme for three is group activities, and with Cups that becomes emotional bonds...The healing power of this card would be around friendships."Think about your most precious and healthy friendships and feel the loving energy that surrounds you when you think about them and are with them. That is the best way to describe and feel the energy of the Three of Cups.
I have a handful of people who I consider my very closest of friends...and several of them are related to me! These are people I trust -- there are no hidden agendas, we support and listen to each other equally, we enjoy similar activities and have found each other on this path at this time (however long that is) for a reason.
I cherish these people and our friendships.
As I described the qualities of my closest friendships, what would you add to the list? Who comes to mind for you?
The Three of Cups is a reminder to be with the people you love and enjoy. If you don't think you have a cause to celebrate...make one up!
It's easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and forget about having fun. Today, decide who you'd like to spend time with to celebrate and have fun. Set up a time to get together in the next couple of weeks and revel in the energy of the Three of Cups.
