III of Cups/3 of Water

3 of cups

The Three of Cups is one of my favorite cards – it’s a party card!  This card is all about having fun with your friends.  The card is often compared to the relationship between the women on Sex in the City or on Friends.  Think of your best friends – those people you can let your hair down with, be your authentic, fun self, and have a good time.   Continue reading

IV of Wands/4 of Fire

four of wands

The Four of Wands indicates all that hard work has paid off.  You’ve completed your goals and perfected work.  It’s time to celebrate!

Arches in the cards typically are symbolic of a new direction in your journey.  In this case it can be a marriage or birth of a child or can be the next phase of a business journey after bringing your goal to completion.  The castle in the background is symbolic of achieving a goal – it looms large in the card because you’ve made it!  The castle also reflects stability and a solid foundation.  The flowers and wreaths in the cards are symbolic of joy and celebration.  Grapes and grape leaves represent abundance and blessing.

Upright meaning: You’ve completed a meaningful step on your journey and have reached the top of something.  This can also be exciting news like a marriage or birth of a child.  It could also be something like the purchase of a new home – see that giant castle in the background?  This is a period of harmony and stability.  Enjoy it!

Reversed: Because of the strong ‘home’ vibe associated with the Four of Wands, a reversal is usually some kind of breakdown in communication at home.  This could be tension between family members or may be an indication that you’re going through a transition away from home.  Things at home may feel unstable.

The Four of Wands is the ultimate party card.  Celebrate all the hard work you’ve accomplished.  This is one of the most positive cards in the deck.  If you don’t have a literal party in the works, plan one!  Take time to celebrate your success with the people you love.
