Reading for Saturday, March 28, 2015 is from the Pearls of Wisdom Tarot (2nd edition – 2008) illustrated by Roxi Sim, book by Caeli Fullbrite.
“I open myself to my purpose, to pursue my dreams by stepping out of the shadow, out of my comfort zone, and into the light.”
For today’s reading I would like to first draw attention to the number 3. We have the Three of Wands (expansion), the Three of Pentacles (creativity & cooperation), and Death (transformation & metamorphosis) which is no. 13 in the Major Arcana. Yes, I know that Death is usually associated with the number 4 (1+3=4), but today I’ll be concentrating on the number 3 element, or 333. In numerology triple numbers are thought to more significant, even sacred, in their meaning, and you have to admit when you see them there is a certain amount of a mystical magical quality which surrounds them. Well, at least they do for me. And let me just say that I am by no means a numerologist, but I do find the field fascinating. So, I’ve searched around the internet and discovered that there are a lot of differing opinions in the field, but the one that I preferred was the representation of Mind, Body, Spirit.
I think if you look at the cards in this order you can see how each apply. For instance, Mind: The Three of Wands. “You are undergoing a deep transformation. Whatever plans you make now are subject to you inner process. Remain focused and flexible. Try to contact your Higher Self. Dream your creative projects into reality. They can bring sweet reward.” (page 100) Are you seeing how you can make your dreams a reality? How you can think outside the box and just how many people you can reach? Are you ready to step outside of your comfort zone and put yourself (products and/or services) out to a larger audience?
Body: Death – Once again we see the word transformation. “Death is multilayered with physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual or psychic levels. No matter what facet of Death you are integrating into your being, the out-of-control nature of the experience is the overriding essence. An internal door opens. You walk into the light of the energy of the Whole. Finally, you are one with the Truth of existence. You are home.” (page 58) It’s through transformation, making the changes that we need to make -especially our inner voice and thought processes- that we will see the results we want. You have to leg go of old fears and anything else that no longer serves you and step into the light for change and renewal. In this image we can actually see this process occurring right before our eyes.
Spirit: Three of Pentacles. Many times I see this card as one of cooperation, especially when it pertains to specific craftsmen and women. To build a house you need a carpenter, an electrician, a plumber, etc. They are all working towards the finished product, but they all have theie area of expertise. This thought coincides with yesterday’s reading of the cooperation and consulting sometimes needed to move your project or particular skills set along. Where does Spirit come into play?
“The way to Spirit for Pentacles lives not so much in success or even awareness of value in ordinary things, as in the work that allows us to appreciate those things.” ~Rachel Pollack, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom.
It is this quote that I attribute to my curiosity and quest to find the Spiritual Side of Pentacles. Anytime we do spiritual work, it’s as if all the ordinary things around us take on a magical quality all of their own. So you can see how they do go together so well. In the Three of Wands image you see light from the Sun focused on the subject who is diligently working on his craft. Can we infer that there is some type of divine blessing and inspiration happening? Yes, I believe we can.
So as I said I am not a numerologist and went searching for resources to help explain the significance of the numbers 333. I found a lovely site called, Intuitive Journal where the bloGGess has this to say on this number combination.
“It means that is a sign that the angels signify their agreement to your thoughts. It means truth and is a sign of the trinity. Mind, body, and spirit. Three becoming one. Angels love, protect, and surround you and the union is complete. Angels are in your midst.” ~Laurra Warnke
What better “stamp of approval” could you need than the Angels are in agreement and are with you? Before I did this reading I had already set my mind to accomplishing something that I have just thought about doing, some day… Well, it seems there’s no better time than right now.
