The Three of Cups tarot card is this week’s Tarotcast. This card represents celebration and joy. This week highlights happy occasions shared with family and friends. There are opportunities to socialize and party for any reason – or no particular reason at all!
Good news comes in announcements of engagements or weddings. Pregnancies, birth announcements – even promotions and career advancements. The good news and good fortune may be yours or someone else’s. Enjoy the lighthearted, carefree freedom. Spend time with people you like/love and celebrate successes, large and small.

The Elements

The Three of Cups tarot card represents the receptivity of Water fertilized by the Will, or Yang energy. The fulfillment of the Will through Love.

The Number 3

The Threes of the Minor Arcana represent form, structure and first results or manifestations. They show the effects of energy in action – in this case, for Cups and Water. They bring a perspective, a viewpoint and an understanding of events and situations. The threes show the process of resolution and unification after the polarization and duality of the twos.


On the kabalistic Tree of Life, the Three of cups tarot card represents the formula 3. Sephiroth or sphere 3, Binah (Understanding). Supreme Feminine energy, or Yin. In the suit of Cups (Briah). The creative world; the element of Water and the emotions. Plus Mercury in Cancer equaling Abundance.


The Three of Cups tarot card symbolizes Mercury in Cancer. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Cancer, or July 2nd through July 11th. If your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. This is water energy creating and sustaining life – nurturing and fertilizing. Intuitive messages, expressed feelings and emotional fulfillment are the highlights of this week.

In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Earth-sign Capricorn. The Goat is the polar opposite of the Crab on the wheel of the zodiac. Though both signs value financial security, Cancer energy is sensitive. It can be dreamy, indirect and secretive. Capricorn energy is realistic, self-disciplined and ambitious. These complementary energies can combine the best qualities of each. Generosity, flexibility, open-mindedness, imagination partnered with stability and determination.

On December 26th there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. The focus will shift to career, reputation and public achievements. This is a time of new beginnings. While we’re enjoying our successes, we can set realistic, attainable goals.

This Solar Eclipse occurs near a Sun-Jupiter conjunction, filling us with optimism. This combines with an upcoming Saturn and Pluto alignment. We can tear down so that we can rebuild stronger and better. This is a creative, productive time.

Practical and well-organized plans come together when Mercury enters Capricorn on December 28th.


Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes hedonism and escapism. Lust and over-indulgence in sensual pleasures (sex, food, drink, drugs, etc.)


Let’s focus on being cheerful. Celebrate with moderation and enjoy the fulfillment of love and happiness.


Power colors: yellow, amber, purple, maroon, indigo, violet, gray and black.

Power stones: diamond, emerald, jade, jasper, topaz and aquamarine. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones. They will help us communicate. We express ourselves with love and ensure our messages are well-received.

Power metals: mercury and zinc (not wearable) as well as silver (very wearable!) Sparkle!

Power fragrances: poppy, rose, valerian, lavender, lilac and vervain. These enhance the celebratory atmosphere and keep communication smooth, successful, loving and positive.

Power foods: foods prepared with parsley, dill, rosemary, poppy seeds, lemongrass and watercress. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
