Three of Wands

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Upon a grassy hill, an expectant mother anxiously awaits
the blooming of three wands. A chunk of orange amber glows hot on her belt,
signaling that birth is eminent. Having committed massive energy into the
growth of this new life, she reflects on the journey that has brought her to
this moment. Although she is hopeful for success, the number three represents
unpredictability and the chance that things may not develop as imagined.

A vine-like umbilical cord connects the young mother’s
swollen belly to the wands. Her warm blood streams through this vital link,
which nourishes the blooms and keeps them alive. Her exposed breast shows her
readiness to foster the plants after they flower; however, she keeps her other
breast tucked under her arm in a guarded fashion. This might imply that she has
mixed feelings about the perpetual responsibilities that lie ahead.

In the days before raising these wands from seed, the
young mother was immature and wild. Nurturing something greater than herself
taught her to focus on creation instead of destruction. She has flipped her
fierce warrior mask around to the back like a cloak, revealing the caring side
of her personality.

From afar, the deviant moon imparts its spirit upon the
buds with its silver breath. The young mother has done her part, and now the
universe will complete this unique creation.

Upright meanings:

 

The Three of
Wands represents the circulation of creativity from one form to another. Like a
mother with child, your life force flows into your creations and sustains them
until they can survive on their own. You have given so much to bring your ideas
into existence, and they are flourishing brilliantly. Although this should be
an exciting time for you, vicious thoughts of self-doubt run in the back of
your mind. As you contemplate your efforts, you may be wondering if you planned
well enough to ensure favorable results. Stop worrying and let your remarkable conceptions
unfold naturally.

 

Reversed
meanings:

Upside down, the Three of Wands says that a creative endeavor will go wrong
despite your best attempts. While you meant well and tried to think of
everything, the little mistakes you made along the way will compound into a
tremendous failure. Regardless of any setback, you must remember that you did
not waste your time. Learn from your errors, conceive a better plan, and try
again!

Perhaps the negative aspects of your character are getting the best of you,
making it hard to concentrate on projects or see them to fruition. Realize that
neglect or a lack of dedication may also lead to your creations demise.

Unfortunately, this reversed card might predict a miscarriage or premature
birth.

of Wands” -Rough Sketch-2007


In this early variation, three
impaled skulls mark the boundary between a pristine environment and a polluted
industrial zone. Deadly toxins leached from the factories contaminate the water
and encroach upon the countryside.

    I do love the way Patrick Valenza connects the Three of Wands card with Pregnancy (even the meanings have to do with that). 🙂 Brilliant!
