Tarot Card ~ February 2

Three of Cups

The Dressing of the Sacred Spring


Fortune Cookie: 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! 



A card last seen in early December.  And a perfect card to show up as so many move [eagerly or not-so-much] into a tidal wave of holiday celebrations.

What holiday celebrations?  [Philistines!] Well, Groundhog Day, of course.  And Imbolc, St. Brigid’s Day and Candlemas.  Not to mention the birthday of Bona Sforza, queen of Sigismund I of Poland. Ha!  

Anyway, always grateful to see this card.  It’s such a breath of fresh air, hope and goodness. 

 A good card to savor and contemplate, and keep in mind as we begin to slog through the stuck energy time of winter.

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 especially 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, being gormly simple myownseff.]

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 solaceOthers see it speaking of victory or celebration with friends.



Fine, fine, fine.

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. Yessss!!! 

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. 


Uh…  No.


Oh, PuhhLEEEEZE, no.







I give up.


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 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:  Kids. You gotta love them. I adore children. A little salt, a squeeze of lemon – perfect. ~ Jim Butcher  Today’s Weather:  A wee touch o’ the spirit of all that’s good an’ healing.  But wear galoshes. 

On This Date: 506 – Alaric II, eighth king of the Visigoths promulgates The Breviary of Alaric (Breviarium Alaricianum or Lex Romana Visigothorum) a collection of Roman law. [You better believe he does!]

    I didn’t know I was such a Disney fan. But as I scrolled down and saw the Lady and the Tramp pic, my heart skipped a beat. THAT will carry me through the day with an inner smile this Ground Hog/Candlemas/St. Brigid’s day… a day of preparing for an upcoming weekend of festivities with family coming from Columbus, North Carolina, and elsewhere.

    Stay safe and warm today!

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna
