Short meaning: There is something to celebrate, an emotional climax such as an engagement, the conception of a child or a ceremony of some sort. The Three of Cups shows a joyful time worth rejoicing with loved ones.
In-depth meaning: This is a very positive card that depicts harmonious relationships, including familial or work relationships or a key friendship. The emotion and experiences in the Ace and Two have led to this outcome and the Subject should be feeling happy in their connection with the other person.
As well as celebrations and amicable relationships, this card can represent finding a new balance within a relationship that has recently experienced problems. Perhaps boundaries had become confused and a new understanding has created a more solid foundation to build on. The Subject will feel grateful for this. This is not the final outcome, as the relationship in question will evolve further and there is still a lot to learn about one another.
Notes on the image: There are now three cups held securely on the tree, as well as foliage and blossom indicating happiness and positive times. The water (the element associated with Cups) is calm. The image represents moving on a stage in relationships, new and existing ones, and a manifestation of something to celebrate and enjoy
