There is a wonderful Russian proverb: “Morning is always wiser than evening.” I love this saying and believe it is an excellent philosophy to guide us in life. I’m writing this week about the importance taking the higher perspective. This is the energy of the Three of Wands card: taking the high ground and the long-term view.
We all know that it’s important not to react in the heat of the moment. It can be a challenge but it’s always worthwhile to step back before we say or do something that we may later regret. Before you send that flame mail or act on impulse, stop and think, will this help or hurt? If you’re not sure, maybe you should sleep on it and see how you feel tomorrow.
The Three of Wands advises us to call on our Higher Power for guidance, to find our intuitive direction, and to gain a higher perspective. We may have to stand back and wait patiently for the right message to arrive from a higher authority, but trust me, it’s always best to allow the universe to expand your life when the time is right for you.
The Three of Wands also means to ‘take the high road’ and to rise above our circumstances. Be a visionary. Dream beyond your current limitations. What are your dreams and goals, is life turning out how you had hoped? The Three of Wands encourages us not only to dream but to make it a practical reality. Be courageous and you will win through. This is the symbology of the Three of Wands in Mythic Tarot: a young man becomes king and wins the crown. Victory against the odds.
When have you had to take the higher perspective? I would love to hear your stories, and you can share them with other readers by posting them in comments here on this blog. Lots of love, Caroline Anna
