Three of Wands: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading

  9-01-20 through 9-08-20

Three of Wands

The Three of Wands is this week’s Tarotcast card. We’re poised at the brink of success, and we will definitely enjoy a shot of positive group energy. We’re successful in our interaction with others. Inspired, we connect with a talent pool of valuable people and resources. We’re ready to enter the next phase of our endeavors. We will need to make sure that our energy stays collaborative and not coercive, though.

The Elements

With the Three of Wands, Solar fire energizes the material and physical. Action leads to successful manifestation.

The Number 3

The Threes of the Minor Arcana represent form and structure. They are the first results or manifestations. They show the effects of energy in action – in this case, for Wands and Fire. They bring a perspective, a viewpoint and an understanding of events and situations. Threes show the process of resolution and unification. This is a natural progression following the polarization and duality of the twos.


On the Tree of Life, the Three of Wands represents the formula 3. Sephiroth or sphere 3, Binah (Understanding). The sphere of Saturn. The Divine Feminine or Yin energy. In the suit of Wands – Atziluth, the archetypal world. Combined with the element of Fire (the life force of the soul, the will). Plus the Sun in Aries, equaling Virtue.


The Three of Wands card corresponds to the Sun in Aries. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Aries, or March 31st to April 10th. 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 energy is powerful, confident, creative and lively. We can take the initiative in some nearly-brilliant ways and make our dreams of success a reality.

In real-time astrology, The Sun is transiting Earth-sign Virgo. This complementary energy works well with that of this week’s card. Our brilliance can illuminate practical matters. We build our success on solid principles. The Full Moon in Water-sign Pisces on September 2nd revs up our intuition. Pay attention to your dreams. There is a drawback to this energy. We need to remain conscious in the present while traveling mysterious realms.

The time is always right to do what is right.

With Mercury currently transiting Virgo we can resolve this paradox. Near this Full Moon it trines with Pluto and Saturn (both in Earth-sign Capricorn). This will help us avoid confusion and see the truth of any situation.

A quick preview of the Mars Retrograde in Aries beginning September 9th. Mars is Aries’ ruling planet. The Warrior God is quite at home here. Our sex drive and career ambitions may hit pause. This can raise frustration and impatience. Be advised though – conflicts are likely to be unproductive now. Why make a bad situation worse?


Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Three of Wands includes overdoing it. Acting-out, creating drama, and engaging in attention-seeking behaviors. Steam-rolling over others and stealing or not crediting their ideas and input.


Let’s focus on putting positive energy into constructive action. We have the perfect conditions to manifest our developing confidence and self-assurance. Take opportunities to achieve success.


Power colors: orange, red, scarlet, crimson, amber, yellow and gold (for both the Sun and Aries).

Power stones: ruby, bloodstone, diamond, amber, topaz and garnet. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones to do the right things for the right reasons. This is the meaning of “Virtue” and this week – as the old saying goes, “virtue is its own reward”.

Power metal: Gold. Yellow or rose gold, in this case – strong, beautiful and eternal. Wear it to find the right tools, make the right plan and act with the right attitude.

Power fragrances: rose, juniper, orange and frankincense to experience optimism and strength.

Power foods: foods prepared with sunflower seeds, galangal, orange, rosemary, cinnamon and clove. How about some gin (juniper!) or beer (hops!) enjoyed responsibly. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
