A well-dressed man stands on a cliff. He looks out to sea where he can see ships and the mountains beyond. There are three staves planted firmly in the ground beside him and he is grasping one, as though, perhaps, leaning on it for support.

What The Three of Wands Means In A Tarot Reading

The Three of Wands is a card of success. You’ve been working hard and have struggled to get to this point, but now at last you’re able to see the fruits of your labour.

You may not be quite ready yet to go it alone, however. You may still need help from others and may be leaning on them for support. Teamwork and co-operation will be key to helping you make progress at this time.

The appearance of the Three of Wands signifies that the first phase of a project has been completed successfully. It’s up to you now to move things on to the next phase where you can experience even more success. But what does this mean? Well, it may be that, after putting in a lot of hard work and study, you’ve successfully passed your exams and now you need to move on to the next phase – perhaps an internship of some kind. Or maybe you’ve had a wonderful idea for a product and have successfully launched it online. This took determination and hard work, and you’re rightly proud of your success. But, in order to be even more successful, you’ll need to continue to market and, perhaps, expand or diversify your product range.

In this card we see the man, who has traditionally been called a merchant, gazing out over the sea to the mountains beyond. From his vantage point he can see everything that is happening. You’ll also have a clear vision of where you’re going. You’ll be able to see obstacles ahead and will be able to plan accordingly.

The Three of Wands can also indicate travel, especially overseas. This will be a journey to find new opportunities – perhaps to study, or for a new job.
