Monday 7th - Card of the Day - 3 of Cups

Postby Jan » 07 Aug 2017, 15:33

Many of the traditional versions of this cards show three young women preparing a flower-bedecked bower - perhaps to offer shelter for some upcoming and important event. The woman often wear a laurel wreath which reveals a slightly hidden aspect of the card - that of triumph and victory. Of coure, in order for there to be vistory there must, of necessity have been travail beforehand. Since this is a Cup, that victory is likely to affect the emotional area of life. When we put these two things together we recognise that we view a person (or people) healing from pain and sadness of some sort.

i just love this card! the power of three. when i was a kid growing up here in the states in the seventies and eighties, we had a program that would play along with Saturday morning cartoons called School House Rock. they had a ditty about 3, that 3 was the magic number. and i think it's interesting with tarot how three can be great with a cup, but so sorrowful with a sword. and yet, for the seeming difference, i see how they are connected.

Quabbalistically 3 is the number of the Sephirah of Binah. this is also known as The Vision of Sorrow, and is the first appearance of the Feminine Divine force on a journey down the tree. That appearance could be seen as a blessing and a curse all at the same time - this probably reflects into the enormously differing expression of 3's in Tarot. And numerologically 3 is the initial "coming together into completion" card - 1 is the individuated spirit, 2 is the joining of that spirit with another, and 3 is the result....again here you can follow the logic to some degree can't you?
