The Three of Cups

This article was written by Stephen Sterling
posted under Tarot

“Fraternity”
Astrological correspondence: Mercury in Cancer (excited emotions).

Image: Three women each hold a Cup aloft as they dance together in a vegetable garden.

Key Phrase: Celebration within the group.

Statement: “I enjoy sharing myself among my family, friends, and acquaintances. I heal and am healed within their atmosphere.”

Quotation: “Friendship, like the immortality of the soul, is too good to be believed.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Friendship")

Major Obstacle: The ego, because of antisocial behavior, feels like an outcast.

The Three of Cups in a Reading
  • Efforts of individuals brought to a common purpose.
  • Solace from belonging to a group; inclusion.
  • Brotherhood/sisterhood.
  • Beneficial group activity.
  • Celebration with friends.
  • Relationships grow.
  • Communication; views expressed with sensitivity (Mercury in Cancer).


REVERSED
  • Disillusionment (with the group).
  • Cult activity.
  • Emotional pain caused by those close.
  • Unexpected harshness and insensitivity from acquaintances.
  • Failure to establish agreement.
  • Gossip.
  • Conflicts with friends; quarrels (Mercury in Cancer, afflicted).


STRATEGY
  1. The company of others can be a great source of enjoyment.
  2. The Three of Cups emphasizes the idea that “no man is an island.”
  3. It is important to appreciate those around you; taking people for granted eventually leads to emotional isolation.
  4. Activity within the group encourages fellowship, an excellent resource for movement along the path.

Whenever I conduct a workshop on mind reading, my students are pleasantly surprised to find that they're already good at reading minds. In fact, they began doing it when they were babies. As a baby, you would have recognized the expressions on people's faces, and knew if someone was likely to be friendly or not. As you grew, these skills continued... read this article
