3 of cups tarot card advice main

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.” – Barbara Bush

Family is the first community that we are born into. It is not always limited by blood; family can also be found, chosen, and built over time. When times are rough, family is supposed to be there to catch you when you fall. When The 3 of Cups appears in your reading, it is a sign that it is time for you to reconnect with this branch of your support system.

Reach out to them and let them know how you are doing, and ask in turn how life has been treating them lately. The mutual support that you find in these interactions will greatly enrich your life, adding new and innovative perspectives on your current situation. If there is something that you have been struggling with, share it with those you love. Not only will they be there to support you, but you may find that they propose solutions that you had previously overlooked. 

You may also find that this is an issue that you aren’t prepared to face on your own; your family is waiting and ready to help you push forward through tough times. Take this as an opportunity to strengthen the relationship that you have with each other and celebrate the joy that comes with a loving support system.

3 of cups meaning for relationship

Your romantic life has not been the most fulfilling as of late. If you already have a partner, it may feel as though they are not giving you the love and attention that you desire. Are they spending more time with their friends than they are with you? Perhaps you’ve found that your relationship has hit a a different kind of rough patch. Have tensions been high, causing the two of you to easily fall into fights that could have otherwise been avoided? If you do not have a partner, you may be suffering from a sense of loneliness and inadequacy. However, there is nothing wrong with you that has kept you from finding a partner. Instead, it is time for you to fall back on the rest of your support system. 

Reach out to friends and family members and fill them in on the struggles you’ve been facing lately. If they spend time around you, chances are that they have a fairly good idea of how you mesh with your partner. They may offer insights that you haven’t considered before; after all, love is blind. If you are in a happy relationship at the moment, this may also be a sign that there is a change on the horizon for your little family. This may be marriage, a baby, or even a new pet. However this change manifests, be sure to share all of the love in your heart for those you hold dearest.

3 of cups meaning for job and career
Some may argue that their work family is far more important to them than their blood family. You’ve found a deep connection with those you work with, and are confident in saying that they are more than just “work buddies”

Having a work family is a very unique type of connection; not only are you able to work together smoothly in a professional environment, but you are also there to support each other in non-work situations. Now is the time to fall back on this family to meet the expectations that work has placed on you as a team. As the saying goes: teamwork makes the dream work! You will find that each member of your family has something unique to contribute to the task at hand. 

By consciously making an effort to engage the whole team and recognize each member’s unique role, your work family will emerge from the current hardships even stronger than before.

3 of cups reversed main meaning

There is a line where falling back on your support system transforms into dependency and reliance. When The 3 of Cups appears in the reversed position, it is a sign that you have pushed the support of your family a little too far. This can manifest in a variety of ways; you may be refusing to seek professional help for something that they can’t help you with, stagnating in a toxic state of living, or even abusing the support of your family in order to maintain a state of comfort. 

This does not mean that you have destroyed these relationships; instead, it may be time for you to reevaluate where your interests lie. Most likely, you are prioritizing short-term comfort over the long-term satisfaction that comes from considering the advice of those who love you the most. If you have been the source of tension in your relationships, now is the time to start applying salve to the wounds that you have created. 

By admitting that you have made some mistakes, you will prove yourself to a mature individual. As upset as they may be, your family wants nothing more than to build a harmonious relationship with you. They have not given up on you; it may just take a little work on your end in order to re-strengthen your relationship.
