Three of Wands Tarot Card Meaning

The Three of Wands tells you that your current goals are moving forward and are successful, but you want to do more. You want to expand your current opportunities even more. The opportunities that you are considering may be in uncharted waters. There may be a chance to maximize your potential with study, travel, or a new business.

It’s time to think big and really get out of your comfort zone. You need to stay committed to your path in order to see success. Have confidence that you will achieve your goals, no matter how big they seem.

You may be enjoying the success that you have had so far, which has been well deserved from the hard work that you have put in.

Three of Wands Reversed Tarot Card Meaning

When the Three of Wands is reversed, you’re feeling stuck where you are. You have all of these goals and plans, but you may not know where to start.  You may also be feeling comfortable where you are, hesitant to leave your comfort zone. This is preventing new opportunities in your life.

There may be some delays or blockages that you have encountered when trying to achieve your goals. These may have seemed like you couldn’t overcome them. It’s time to create a new plan, for the new challenge to get you back on track. I like to call these mini goals. Sometimes the delays you face will be out of your control, and it’s time to use patience to see things through. You may need to add some extra time to your completion date to accommodate this possibility.
