Tarotcard of the week

I’ts time to get this blog, and my studdy of my tarot deck, started. So I’ll try to do a description of one tarot card a week starting today. I’ll be using the Osho Zen deck, which I love! To days card is:

3 of cups

Traditional significance: It often indicats an upcoming feast or celebration of some kind, but can also stand for emotional victories and a group of people who feel affection or friendship for each other. Associated with happiness and success, positive closure and abundance but also with healing and relief. In a spread about work this card tends to show that the atmosphere at work is good and that your team works well together. In a concept of love, it may indicate that the best chance to find love at a party, or if you have a partner; to an approaching wedding, or at least that the relationship is entering a new, positive, phase. In an economic spread the 3 of cups stands for achieved financial targets and that it is time to take the opportunity to enjoy the good economy.

Osho Zen sense: The card reminds us that there is always something to celebrate. Life is joy, sorrow and depessionen are human inventions. When did you last see a depressed flower? The card shows that it is important that we are not so wise that it distract us from our joy.

How do I interpret the card: I must start by saying that I really love this tarot deck. The cards talk to me with their beautiful pictures. This is a card that for me is about joy and the positive in life. When I get it in a spread, I am always happy because even if a period of one’s life begins to draw to an end, there will be a positive change, something good is waiting around the corner. If it has been a ‘dark’ spread this card brightens it and gives hope. The picture on the card reminds me that there’s so much we can celebrate that we don’t, that it is useful to change the way you look at the world to find happiness where you thought that it did not exist. The three women dancing and celebrating although the rain is pouring down and it looks windy. They are barefoot when they splash around in puddles. But they smile and look so happy. How often do we celebrate the rain, instead of complaining about it? I remember the hot summer months when the rain finally comes after you’ve been longing for it for weeks.Water barrels in the garden is filled again so that the vegetables in the garden can once again be watered.  It reminds us that very few things in life are just negative, it is our own view of things that cause them to become either the things we complain about or things we celebrate. 3 of the cup reminds us to take an extra look at the world and find the joys in life that we can and celebrate them as if they were wedding parties.
