Tarot Card for the Day ~ February 2

February 1, 2009

Three of Cups

The Dressing of the

Sacred Spring



And may I wish you all a blessed Imbolc, happy St. Brigid’s Day, and a joyous Candlemas (check out Wikipedia about those festivals).


As Brigid is the Gaelic Goddess of poetry − among several other things − I will honor her this year by NOT inflicting a poem upon you.  Believe me, you should count your blessings.   


Oyeah.  The card.  The card.  Right!


First off, please remember that threes in any Tarot deck are power cards, or rather, that the issue the card is addressing is one of power, even if it doesn’t seem so on the surface.  Typically, a three would offer counsel such as


~ beware of power games,

~ be prepared for power struggles,

~ watch out for failure to own your power 

   or, better,






~ have a care against disempowerment

   in any area of life, whether by the action

   of others,  or by your own action

   or inaction 

~ empower yourself

~ empower those you love and believe in

~ accept the challenge of owing all of

   what you are and who you can be


Simple, really.


The Three of Cups is a card of blessing.  It is very positive in the potential it bespeaks.  It is a card of empowerment, fruitful completion and healing.  How are these things to be fostered and achieved?    By engaging in heartfelt, beautiful and joyful sacred celebration with those of like mind and soul. 


Please, today, take some time, even if just a moment, to connect with those in your circle who are positive, supportive and helpful − who inspire hope and joy and all good things in your life – and even if it’s just by phone, even if it’s only for a minute. 


Share something or share about something you can celebrate together.  Don’t forget to include your Spirit Guides, guardian angels, absent gurus, loving friends or even family members who have passed from this realm as you open to celebration.  And let yourself be empowered by what transpires.


Remember that the Celts believed (and still believe) the Divine is present in every place, everything  and everyone – including you and what you are doing now, and everywhere you will go and everything you will do today.  So GIVE YOURSELF THAT!


Own your power.  Help empower others.  Seek others whose goodness and LIGHT is empowering to you.  And do it in a joyful, celebratory way.  Today!  (Perfect excuse for celebration with good people!)


Bright blessings, joy and CELEBRATION!
