Three of Cups
This tarot card brings with it a celebratory mood. In a reading, it can elevate our lives to intoxicating heights, and bring vitality to our daily lives. There are clear signs that we should open up to the gifts of beauty, joy, and good times, that are awaiting us. We are encouraged to accept that happiness is a state of mind, and we can attract peace and success only once we are in a positive frame of mind.
The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
