Three of Wands

Upright/Well Dignified: This card talks about the possibility of failure, as well as the possibility of success. It also points out that with some things, even a failure isn’t a problem. Whatever is- on the horizon is elsewhere, not here, but in order to know what is elsewhere, you need to start moving and keep on moving as far as you can in your chosen direction. This card is sometimes referred to as the Lord of Valour in occult circles, as it points out that the one thing that all successes have is that they began moving in a definite direction, even if their successes came accidentally. The solitary man shown in many of the Rider Waite inspired cards point to the fact that nobody else can make you decide.

This card also points to possibilities that are open to you now that you’ve put yourself in a position to see them. Above the fray, you’re able to see what’s there, both good and bad, making what’s possible by simply applying yourself all the more visible. You’re at a point where there are a lot fewer distractions than there used to be and as a result you can more fully establish where you want to be in life and, more importantly, how to get there. All you need to do is establish your purpose and start heading in that direction in an carefully planned manner. Whether it’s the direct approach or the more tactful approach, you need to get moving as there might not be as much time as you’d hope. There may be others following you as you blaze a new trail, or at least needing you to lead the way to something better.

Reversed/Ill Dignified: There are times when you need to move forward. This is the same as the upright three of Wands. The difference here is that you need to move forward in order to fail. The failure isn’t a permanent thing, but what you’re directing your attention toward isn’t going to end well. The three of Wands reversed isn’t about the fact that in this particular instance, you come up short, but whether or not you can show dignity in the face of initial failure. The need to get up, brush yourself off and write off what just happened as an interesting learning curve before you move on to bigger and better things. Don’t let this hiccup stop you from moving forward. This particular mistake being made is going to show you a few things about how to get to where you need to be.

There is also the possibility that there is something blocking your ability to move forward, or maybe your desire to do so. Losing your enthusiasm for a project isn’t going to stop the project from needing to be completed, so following through as though the enthusiasm is still there is the best way to go. Should there be something blocking you, it might be time to not only see what’s causing the issue, but also why you let it remain. This might be something that’s been around for a whileo and has become so much a part of your life that it never occurred to you to actually see why this particular issue keeps on popping up.
