Dec 3 – Three of Wands – You Have the Vision, Now Act

December 3rd, 2022, 12:39 PM by Goddess

On the third day of December, the tarot advent calendar said to me …

Do a “future, festive you” some favors today.

I love wands because I love fire.

I also don’t use fire in my magick anymore because mom can’t stand the smell of candles or incense (scented or not — even the burning smell bothers her).

Also, catbutt. My furriest baby, Belly, always catches me sneaking a quick candle burn and walks across the flame. Then I have to hear about it that mom smells burning fur.

That’s my connection to the Three of Wands. You realized with the Two of Wands that there’s a whole world out there, and it’s your fiery little oyster. Which direction will you pick?

In the Three, you’ve got the vision. And you need to act on the desires before they flame out.

I feel like I am permanently stuck at three.

It’s good in a way because threes symbolize power. But if you don’t tap into that potential, even if it turns out to be a complete and utter disaster, you don’t get to the celebration stage that the Four of Wands represents.

How do I best serve future, festive me?

Right now I’ve been coming back from severe burnout. But I was met with an issue that messed up two days.

The issue got resolved this morning. And I have to thank past me for having the foresight to prepare for the fallout from a mess I didn’t know was coming.

And the issue only got resolved after I lay awake worrying about it. I told myself, go back to sleep — you’ll know what to do when you go to do it.

Sure enough, at 8 a.m. I chose the solution I wasn’t planning to choose. And it saved me a fortune as well as two more days of inconvenience.

Anyway, this post was supposed to be for future me, not past me.

But maybe there’s a lesson to be learned here about having two options and JUST KNOWING what to do … and then DOING it.

Future me has a choice of two different elements — water or earth.

Practical me (usually the winner) really wants earth. Go figure. Earth equals practicality. Stability.

The other Gemini Twin wants water. Flow to complement the ebb. Uncertainty, but balance.

I wonder if I just made a major life decision with this post.
