3 of Wands Angelic Tarot Card Meanings

The 3 of Wands Tarot card (Sun in Aries) is about actively manifesting that which we are most passionate about at the stage when we cannot yet discern the final outcome. In the 2 of Wands, we were invited to take inspired action. Seeds have now been planted and the ships have been sent out but much remains to be done. The best way to achieve success right now is to hold fast to your vision but not exclude others from taking an active part.

“It’s not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It’s because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”
~ Seneca

I often think of this card as the networking card because our best networking efforts are made when we connect over something that both/all parties are passionate about and when complementary parts of a unified vision come together like pieces of a jigsaw. The pitfall is pride and willfulness. The remedy is a sense of playfulness and a trust that things will come together beautifully

The 3 of Wands is also a card of the pioneering spirit. This is the person who is more concerned with following their inspiration and inner guidance than with gaining the approval of others. As a significator, this card shows someone who is more of a leader than a follower.

Affirmation: “I boldly take the path less travelled and trust that all the right people will cross my path.”

The 3 of Wands in Love and Relationships

In love, the 3 of Wands stands for a dynamic relationship where both parties are free to express themselves. There is mutual respect and a lot of outward-directed energy and creativity in this dynamic duo. You need to stay active together for this dynamic to last.

Reversed or ill-dignified, the 3 of Wands could be an indication of a lack of mutual respect and support. It could mean it’s time to move on. Depending on surrounding cards, as with all 3s, third-party interference can be indicated.

Single and looking

For a single person, this card indicates that networking could lead to developments in your personal life. Get out there and mingle!

Speak your mind and share yourself with others freely. The right ones will be drawn to you thanks to your natural charm and charisma. If you’re thinking of asking someone out, this is the green light from your guides as you’re likely to have a really fun time together.


On an intimate level, this is a wonderful card for straightforward fun and frolics, as well as an invitation to leave your comfort zone.
