Three of Wands

Wands: Ideas, Growth, Energy, Ambition, Expansion 


  • Responsibility 
  • Pride 
  • Patients 
  • Confidence 
  • Investments Bearing Fruit 
  • Successful Merchant 

Here is a successful merchant who is waiting for his ships to return to port. He has sent them out full of goods and they are returning with his profits. He is responsible, patient and filled with confidence. He can expect successful business partnerships.


  • Arrogance 
  • Delayed Results 
  • Unwise Business Partners 
  • Ships Not Coming Into Port 
  • Little Or No Dividends 

The tide has turned. Business ventures may not bear fruit. Here the merchant is waiting for his ships to return again, but this time it's less likely that they will make it back into port. He can expect delays for sure. His arrogance and poor choice of business partners may cost him dearly.
