Tarot Card for the Day ~ October 2

Three of Cups

The Dressing of the

Sacred Spring

Always grateful to see this card.  Always!  Especially when it hasn’t been around since before the summer solstice.

A good card to savor and contemplate, and keep in mind as we move deeper into the dreamy, chilly, hibernating energy of autumn.

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 owning all of

   what you are and who you can be

Simple, really.  [And I should know.]

The Three of Cups is a card of blessing.  It’s very positive in the potential it bespeaks.  

Some readers find it to be a card of plenty, merriment or solace.  Others see it speaking of victory or celebration with friends.


Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, writes of the Three of Cups as acknowledging blessings, the realization of a dream, or festivities and bounty.

I see it as 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 – 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 sharing and 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!

Quote for the Day:  Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.  ~  Benjamin Franklin

Today’s Weather:  Faery proctology. Toto’s beard; carry a boiled egress.

On This Date:  1187 – Siege of Jerusalem: Saladin captures Jerusalem after 88 years of Crusader rule.  [Turns out to be a ploy by Orlando Bloom’s manager.]

And: 1925 – John Logie Baird performs the first test of a working television system. [His last words are, “Conan who?”]

    THANK YOU for sharing the quote by Ben Franklin: Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

    Truly words to live by!!

    ….and something about your words…”as we move into the dreamy, chilly, hibernating energy of autumn.” Loads of that energy today. Sometimes it’s just feels good to give a feeling a name. That feels helpful.

    And, yes, the Divine is present in every place, every thing, and everyone. A good (great) reminder– lest I forget.

    ~ ~ Divine and autumn blessings to you, Neal
