Laura. R. - 3 of Wands
Three of Wands: The Three of Wands is represented by the Little Prince just before leaving his planet to explore new worlds. The suit of wands always talks about action, and the three of wands shows the calm before the real action, the planning, preparation and contemplation of the things that are still to come, the feeling of excitement and wonder about the future. Even though it may look like there is not much going on there is! Everything is moving and revolving inside the heart of this Little Prince, he has to experience detachment from his beloved flower if he ever wants to find out what is beyond his tiny planet. Growth is about to happen, but where and how is the big mystery of this card.
"I believe that for his escape he took advantage of the migration of a flock of wild birds. On the morning of his departure he put his planet in perfect order. He carefully cleaned out his active volcanoes. (...) The little princess also pulled up, with a certain sense of dejection, the last little shoots of the baobabs. He believed he would never want to return."
Bio: I grew up watching my mum reading the Spanish cards any time we had visits over. It was the more exciting part of the evening, towards the end, when all the children were supposed to be in bed. People used to say that she was very good at it. She never took her gifts seriously, but she did have them, and also run on the family. Many years later, as a young adult, I bought my first tarot deck and in that moment I began exploring the unknown, picking it up wherever she had left it. I tend to avoid using tarot for divination but rather as a tool for guidance and personal development. Tarot is a lifetime self tough discipline for me. My cards and their meanings grow and change as I do too.
