Three "Number 3" Cards in a Reading...Coincidence?!!

Postby Hiddencast » Wed Apr 18, 2012 11:01 am

I posted this both in here and in general. I need some help. This has NEVER happened to me before. I was doing a reading for someone. Past present and future. I got

3 of wands. 3 of swords. and the 3 of pentacles....

Does this mean anything? Or is it just...coincidence...

uh, I'm pretty sure that is not devil numbers, as I recall those would be 666, But hey! not my pantheon. Threes are lucky and represent the trinity, and maiden, mother, crone. Anything in three is a good thing. FF

I have tarot cards and I know what they mean but it is a very rare thing to get 3 of the same numbered minor arcana cards in a row!!!!! I've personally never have seen anything like this, so I cant tell you what it means but it must be special. :D It probally isn't coincidence and If you would have flipped over a fourth card it probally would have been the three of cups.

anyone is very welcome to give feedback on my thoughts or even constructive criticism, but my interpretation on this is as follows: wands are a tool of magic, and can represent magic. swords are used by warriors, and that could mean either a battle of some sort or a form of protection. pentacles can mean many things, so ill request help on that one from another.

my thoughts on the wand and the sword are something may be about to happen, in which magic or other such forces may be involved, and the sword may represent a battle/struggle to come or something may come about to protect. i'll admit im not that skilled at stuff like this, so if anyone sees a need to correct me i would actually appreciate the deed

I agree with solar eclipse, although I think the sword could be that, or another ritual supply. Maybe to say ou will need to use a ritual or something like that

Ok, Ill' try to elaborate,...
Three of wands,...past- this is a start up venture of some kind that required lots of work and at least one other partner, that is now defunct (because it is in the past), Three of swords,..present- Questioner is undergoing angony of the mind that is breaking thier heart, or the situation at hand is more than their heart can bear, Three of pentacles,..future- a stabalizing or moneymaking endevor is on the horizion or some kind of foundational thing will present itself (like when a window shuts a door opens) Or Doors, (if you could see the card it should depict 3 pentacles in a doorway) like portals are the openings to new possibilites.
The fact that it is three sets of three, make this a very powerful and important reading, that totals 9...the number of completion, ...if the law is three by three, as we do will...so mote it be...we are stating that it be final and comlpete, because 3x3=9.
Whoever you did this reading for is in for a change...Blessings, Firebird

When 3 threes are present, a lie is close by. I read that somewhere, you might look into it. But as for the cards themselves, in my interpretation, I feel that the 3 of wands means the completion of a phase or turning point in life. The end if the beginning I suppose. Then, the 3 of swords shows peace of mind. A heart of sorrow seeing hope again. Finally, the 3 of pentacles reminds us that there is still work to be done, you aren't finished yet.

According to A.E. Waite, in The Key to the Tarot, three threes means unity. It's a book every Tarot reader should have.
