Numerology and tarot: Threes

Numerology and tarot: Threes

Threes are associated with the Empress and represent a fruitful alliance of pure male (represented by the Mage) and pure female (represented by the High Priestess) beginnings. Due to that reason they are seen as harmonic and balanced (as are all the numbers that are multiple of three). Threes are traditionally associated with fertility and abundance, but also with the first earthly manifestation of a new gift or potential, marked by the Ace and already thought out, weighed, planned and rated on the stage of Twos.

The adventure is far from over, quite the opposite, it is only starting – a few steps towards making a dream into a reality are made. Another aspect of Threes is the appearance of a third person. Twos naturally mean duality, and often talk about a presence of a second person, but Threes go even further and lead to even more artistic productivity and great difficulties, happiness or sorrow.
