Three of Cups
With Venus sextiling Uranus today, it’s a good time to think about taking a break from work and responsibilities and focusing on socializing with friends and loved ones.
The Three of Cups represents people gathering together to connect, interact and celebrate. It’s a happy, joyful energy that can manifest as a party or celebration, or it could be as simple as a girls night out.
Either way it’s a time of merriment and gaiety. Hanging out with like-minded people and expressing feelings of affection and good-will. There’s no room for fretting about work, and none of this sitting around ironing out political or ideological differences.
Today’s Leo Moon (still very new) fits perfectly with the sense of joy and playfulness seen in this version of the card — from the gorgeous Nusantara Tarot. The three figures raise glasses in a celebratory toast as they frolic in a field of wildflowers. There’s a sense of sisterhood and camaraderie that is emphasized here.
In terms of romance the Three of Cups can refer to reconnecting with an old flame or reuniting with an ex. It can also manifest as a natural progression from the Ace of Cups (an attraction) and the Two of Cups (a mutual attraction) to the Three of Cups (taking that attraction to the next level).
Whether you’re celebrating your own good fortune or raising your glass to toast another’s, the Three of Cups serves as a reminder that there’s always something to be grateful for, and always someone to share your gratitude with.

There is a certain amount of balance in this card where your cup is neither full nor empty. You have one foot in and one foot out of a situation but are not fully immersed in the outcome which leaves you room to change your position. Emotionally you are balanced, you feel centred and at peace.
If you have decisions to make today is a great day to make them as you are not being pulled in one direction over another.
The bright pink wings speak of love… the kind of love that is exciting and dizzying. Whichever path you decide to go down it is a win/win for you.

With Mercury squaring Chiron today, you may feel like retreating from the hustle and bustle of your daily routine and moving toward a place of meditation and quiet reflection.
The Hermit card refers to the yearning for wisdom and knowledge that so many of us possess but so few of us take the time to seek out and develop.
In this version of the card, the Hermit stands alone in the dark, partially submerged in the ocean’s tides. He has only his walking stick and lantern to light the way.
Here we see him submerged deeply into the realm of the unconscious, as shown by the waves surrounding him in this card. Notice too how the patterns the waves make are repeated in the fabric of his cloak.
The waves — and water in general — refer to emotions, feelings, the psyche, the collective unconscious, mystery and the unknown. Water represents the feminine or yin principles of instinct and intuition, rather than logic and rational perception.
The Hermit uses the light from his lantern to look into the of the water, past the surface reflection into the murky depths.
