Three of Cups


Key words

Upright: friendship, community, celebration

Reversed: overindulgence, gossip, people-pleasing


Three friends embrace while dancing in a circle, chalices raised in the air. One person wears a white robe (symbolizing purity), another wears a red robe (to indicate passion), and the third wears a yellow robe (representing joy). The ground is covered in fruit and flowers, suggesting abundance and prosperity. The sky is clear and blue.


3: Growth, abundance, creation, path to success


The Three of Cups is a reminder to appreciate and celebrate the friendships in your life. Put your commitments and obligations on the backburner for a while and spend time with people who make you feel loved. 


You may be spending too much time and energy on your social life, or just craving some alone time. Learn to enjoy your own company and don’t let commitments and obligations fall by the wayside in the name of socializing. Alternatively, you may be feeling left out or lonely. Don’t be afraid to speak up, and don’t compromise who you are in order to fit in.
