Three of Wands
Sun in Aries
Curiosity, making plans, fixing our eyes on a goal, energy to tackle the new, time for projects and endeavors
As the four elements move into the 3s, we see the results of the 2s meeting and interacting. There is a sense of consolidation of opposites and the feeling of now being able to “get on with it”. The 3s are aligned with the planet Saturn, the planet the ancients associated with time, with limitations, endings and the boundaries of the solar system. If you connect three points for the first time you have a figure where a boundary encloses a finite space. So the association is very appropriate.
For Fire and Will the three means that we have fixed our intentions and our goals, and we are now ready to take the path under our feet and start exploring, start embarking on an adventure. The card signifies creativity, self-reliance, optimism, liveliness, new ideas, the resolving of any resistances that stand in our path.
Exploring the Card
The Three Broomsticks serve well for an image, because the three brooms make three nice wands, but also because the place is a focal point where intentions cross and meet and many adventures start. For example it’s in the 3 Broomsticks Harry first learns of Sirius and Peter’s involvement in the fate of his family.
