Three of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
The Three of Wands brings good progress where initial goals have now been realised, the duality of the Two creates the third force of energy now made manifest. For some, this card suggests the involvement of others, whereas I use the Two to indicate business partnership, but the Three of Wands can represent commercial interests.
Although the Three is a good card it is still quite a low number and it generally brings small success, so it’s not in the same league as The World, for instance, but still “great oaks from little acorns grow.” Plans start to see form a growing impetus with this card and the first steps of success create the enthusiasm and excitement to build upon further goals for the future; a card of enterprise and forward planning.
If reversed or ill-dignified, similar to the Two, it can indicate hindrances or difficulty manifesting your goals, problems with trading agreements.

Three of Wands > Four of Cups: Despite enjoying a degree of success in your plans so far it ultimately fails to bring satisfaction, which may leave you feeling flat or uninspired. Ensure you entertain all offers as you could easily dismiss a good opportunity out of hand.
Three of Wands > Five of Cups > Nine of Cups: There may be a bump in the road up ahead but it should only be a brief and temporary disappointment, so be careful not to become overly focused upon what you feel may have been lost, as ultimately you achieve what you were hoping for but possibly not in the way you initially anticipated.
Three of Wands > Three of Swords > Three of Pentacles: Successful endeavours may not be plain sailing as it suggests some stormy emotions and upheavals in your workplace which could lead to some spiky exchanges. However, you have the ability to pull things off and, regardless of some minor disputes, can still make good progress.
Three of Wands > Eight of Pentacles > Ace of Swords: Expanding trade or commercial endeavours brings in new work and sees you pulling the rabbit out the hat to come up trumps. Alternately, expansion plans can lead to the introduction of a new line successfully being launched. Also ideal cards for job hunters, as it sees you landing a new role and this would be a progressive move.
Three of Wands > The Hermit: Progress brings careful consideration to expansion plans, take your time with deliberations and do plenty of fact-gathering.
Three of Wands > Wheel of Fortune > The Tower: Be careful not to be overly optimistic with forward planning or take unnecessary risks as it could lead to a downfall. Whilst the situation may be looking quite rosy at present it suggests a downturn to events which could be disruptive, consider contingency planning arrangements and play it safe for the moment.
Three of Wands > The Hanging Man > The Magician: Anticipate a lag in proceedings as things will be held up, in commercial settings it can suggest a slow down to trade, but innovative and imaginative thinking can bring alternative solutions to move matters forward.
