The Three of Cups and its Meaning for Health
The Three of Cups is a minor arcana card that is primarily linked to the idea of celebration and reunions.
It can also refer to things from your past coming back into your life with this potentially taking several different forms.
However, it does also have some very specific links to your health and how it is going to be affected throughout the rest of your life.
If you draw the Three of Cups in the upright position, then it is going to act more as a warning rather than anything else.
It hints that there may be the potential for some over-indulgence coming up and that you have to be careful or your health could suffer.
The hope is that you will take the warning and begin to understand that there is a very real need to do things in moderation or you could be potentially storing up problems for later on in your life.
On the flip side, the Three of Cups in the reverse position is often seen as being an indicator that you have sadly not listened to your body and you have been guilty of doing too much, celebrating too often, and partying too hard.
This can only ever have a negative impact on your health, and there is a pretty good chance that you are now suffering as a direct result of everything that you have been doing.
However, this is not to say that the Three of Cups is going to be telling you that your health is in a bad way.
Instead, it is more in line with advising you that you need to take stock of what is going on and change your ways.
It will certainly not be in line with the idea of impending doom or something terrible happening as that is never the case when it comes to this card.
Also, the Three of Cups is not about to say that you have to completely stop what you are doing as it is more of a helping hand.
You should still go ahead and do all of those things, but never forget to listen to your body as it is going to be pretty good at telling you what it needs and when it is unable to cope with the demands being placed upon it.
So, in general, the Three of Cups does not go into specifics when it comes to your health either in the upright or reverse position.
You are not going to find it telling you that there will be certain ailments that you have to contend with in the near future or that your health is going to change for the better after working through a tough time.
If you do draw this card, then there is no need to worry or stress about what it will all mean.
Instead, focus on the positive message that it is trying to tell you and to take care when it comes to the possibility of doing too much or over-indulging in whatever life is throwing at you.
