Three of Cups Interpretations

The Three of Cups is prominently positive. The power of group-mind, social dynamics, celebration, family, and expression. Mercury brings the power of communication into Cancer giving us an open forum between closely associated individuals. This is a great experience and very vitalizing. At the same time it’s so wonderful that it imposes danger: don’t get distracted or become dependent on this dynamic because once it’s gone you may be hurting from its absence. Work within the unit while being aware of social boundaries and your own independence.

Axank’s Dream Recall

October 01-03, 2013
I was some kind of servant or laborer on a boat-house; Another dream I had was an abstract view of some veins that would fill with fluid and once full would deplete and fade into the substrate and all veins on a horizontal axis would blend into its surroundings.

I’m not too sure if I can find meaning in these dreams other than they both dealt with fluids (cups are water element) and dealt with some form of a changing environment. Also, the veins or roots that were appearing could relate to interconnectedness.
