assimilate and expand
Three is the response to the two and its integration (expansion) + Wands relate to our energy and where we put it.
In the upright or centered position on the card’s spectrum, the Three of Wands sees the return of the two’s exploration and we’re assimilating and considering what’s next in expanding our horizons. If the two was sending our ships out, three shows them coming in, and we are seeing the return on the groundwork we’ve laid; but things are still in process or evolving (three strives for form), so follow-through is key as we’re building, expanding, managing the next cycle of the journey and the opportunities that allow us to expand. How can we keep growing?
When the three’s Fire is deficient, we’re bored with it already or we lack vision. Fear of the unknown can stifle our desire for expansion.
In excess, we’re overreaching, seeking or seizing opportunities which are beyond our capabilities or rooted in attention-seeking. Are we afraid of missing out?
