Three of Wands Interpretations

The three of wands is a card of power and reliability. The traditional meaning you’ll find in most decks is the card indicates your influence in the world or on a project, and it’s energy has been sent out—this is the phase of waiting for the result to come back in to you in another form. Virtue relates to the nobility of remaining true, good, and moral. With the energy of Aries embellished with the warmth and radiance of the Sol—this card carries firm belief with great strength within that belief.

Axank’s Dream Recall

December 09-11, 2016
There was a small section of land filled with sand. It was bordered by a large body of water that extended into the horizon. In this property were a few chairs that I could arrange; Also I was on vacation somewhere, where in a hut or cabin was a fire pit with a gigantic sized urn filled with water next to it. Around the fire pit was a circle of chairs.

I did have other dreams but I pulled these two out because they both have the symbol of a chair — this symbol I think relates to this card in patience or waiting for an outcome to arrive. We sit in the chair and we wait for the result to arrive. Also, the construct of the property bending to my will may also have been about creativity and power in the form of arrangement.
