strong>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.
