The Three of Cups: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading

2-22-22 through 3-01-22

Three of Cups

The Three of Cups is this week’s Tarotcast card. This card represents celebration and joy. As a result, this week highlights happy occasions shared with family and friends. There are opportunities to socialize and party for any reason – or no particular reason at all!

A special note for this week’s Tarotcast card: the numerology of today’s date has quite a few interesting interpretations. But the simplest one that applies in relation to this week’s Tarotcast card is that this date also holds the vibration “3”.  Three connects the body, mind and spirit. It helps us to manifest a new reality. Lastly, it brings wholeness and healing. This is a beautiful enhancement to the joy of this week’s card.

Good news comes in announcements such as engagements or weddings. Pregnancies, birth announcements – and even promotions and career advancements. The good news and good fortune may be yours or someone else’s. Enjoy the lighthearted, carefree freedom. And spend time with people you like/love while celebrating successes, large and small.

The Elements

The receptivity of Water fertilized by the Will, or Yang energy. The fulfillment of the Will through Love.

The Number 3

The Threes of the Minor Arcana represent form and structure. They are the first results or manifestations. They show the effects of energy in action – in this case, for Cups and Water. Also, they bring a perspective, a viewpoint and an understanding of events and situations. Threes show the process of resolution and unification. This is a natural progression following the polarization and duality of the twos.


On the kabalistic Tree of Life, this card represents the formula 3. Sephiroth or sphere 3, Binah (Understanding). Supreme Feminine energy, or Yin. In the suit of Cups (Briah). The Creative world; the element of Water and the emotions. Plus, Mercury in Cancer equaling Abundance.


This card symbolizes Mercury in Cancer. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Cancer, or July 2nd through July 11th. So, if your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. This is water energy creating and sustaining life – nurturing and fertilizing. Intuitive messages, expressed feelings and emotional fulfillment are the highlights of this week.

In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Cancer’s fellow Water-sign Pisces. The shared energy of these two signs is sensitive, dreamy, and compassionate. Mercury is currently transiting Air-sign Aquarius, intellectual and rational, yet humanitarian.

“Singin’ joy to the world, all the boys and girls, now – Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and me…”

Strong emotions and personal perspectives give way to more global thought patterns. But the innovative, creative impulse is often turned to solving very human challenges.

“Joy, beautiful spark of the gods – Daughter of Elysium, we enter fire imbibed, Heavenly, thy sanctuary…”

Ok- so our buddy Ludwig van doesn’t look too cheerful here…

Jupiter in Pisces is semi-square to Pluto in Earth-sign Capricorn on February 23rd. This energy shakes up our current belief systems. Attitudes change or suffer from narrow-minded restriction.

Our task is to learn through experience while still following the rules. We’re expanding the boundaries of the status quo without overt rebellion.


Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes hedonism and escapism. Also lust and over-indulgence in sensual pleasures (sex, food, drink, drugs, etc.)


Let’s focus on being cheerful. Celebrate with moderation and enjoy the fulfillment of love and happiness.


Power colors: yellow, amber, purple, maroon, indigo, violet, gray and black.

Power stones: diamond, emerald, jade, jasper, topaz and aquamarine. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones. They will help us communicate. We express ourselves with love and ensure our messages are well-received.

Power metals: mercury and zinc (not wearable) as well as silver (very wearable!) Sparkle!

Power fragrances: poppy, rose, valerian, lavender, lilac and vervain. These enhance the celebratory atmosphere and keep communication smooth, successful, loving and positive.

Power foods: foods prepared with parsley, dill, rosemary, poppy seeds, lemongrass and watercress. And all provide the same beneficial effects already described.
