“As the four elements move into the 3s, we see the results of the 2s meeting and interacting. There is a sense of consolidation of opposites and a sense of now being able to “get on with it”. The 3s also are aligned with the planet Saturn, the planet the ancients associated with time, with limitations, endings and the boundaries of the solar system. If you connect three points for the first time you have a figure where a boundary encloses a finite space. So the association is very approproate.
For Fire and Will the three means that we have fixed our intentions and our goals, and we are now ready to take the path under our feet and start exploring, start embarking on an adventure. The card signifies creativity, self-reliance, optimism, liveliness, new ideas, the resolving of any resistances that stand in our path.
I chose the 3 Broomsticks for an image, because the three brooms make three nice wands, but also because the place is a focal point where intentions cross and meet and many adventures start. For example it’s in the 3 Broomsticks Harry first learns of Sirius and Peter’s involvement in the fate of his family.”
