Three of Wands Description

The Three of Wands shows a man in red and green robes, standing on a cliff's edge, gazing outward, symbolizing vision and foresight. His back is turned, indicating his focus on future prospects rather than the past. The three wands rooted in the ground around him signify a firm commitment to his chosen path and the plans he has set in motion. Having moved beyond the castle's safety depicted in the Two of Wands, he now faces the open expanse and the sea, representing the broader scope of his ambitions and potential adventures.

The distant ships sailing across the water embody progress, exploration, and the journey towards achieving his goals. This elevated perspective allows him to survey the landscape of his future, acknowledging both the potential challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead. The card captures a moment of strategic planning and anticipation, reflecting readiness to embrace the wider world's possibilities and the proactive steps towards personal or professional growth.
