The Three of Cups: Reversed Meanings
The Golden Tarot Three’s
By nature the threes deal with creativity and growth. Like all tarot cards, this can go in different directions. Take the celebratory three of cups, for example, and contrast it with the dire and dramatic three of swords; some combinations are more constructive than others. Threes also indicate a turning point, moments that unfold after the director calls “action!” They’re active and dynamic unlike the more stationary twos. Because of this threes show times when change is afoot and the querent can harness the energy presented to them as they see fit. The threes, a number that’s all about creation: the act of making something from the union of two. The most obvious and oft-cited metaphor for this is birth – a child created from two partners.
The Golden Tarot Suit of Cups
The Suit of Cups deals with the emotional level of consciousness and is associated with love, feelings, relationships and connections. Cups are about displays of emotion, expression of feelings and the role of emotions in relation to others. The Cups Tarot cards indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. Cups are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The negative aspects of the Suit of Cups (i.e. when the Cups cards appear reversed) include being overly emotional or completely disengaged and dispassionate, having unrealistic expectations and fantasising about what could be. There may be repressed emotions, an inability to truly express oneself and a lack of creativity. The Suit of Cups traditionally represents the west and autumn. If using an ordinary deck of playing cards, Cups are represented by the Suit of Hearts.
Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: As the central theme, the Chariot represented his journey to China to find work in his profession. As he and I discussed the variations on this theme, it became clear that the Page of Swords was linked to a recent conversation he had with his family, in which they told him that they wished that he would move back to Spain to live closer to them, get married, and start a family (themes linked to the Hierophant). To his family, the decision to live and work in China seemed a very unusual way to pursue a career (symbolized by the Hanged Man). His hope was that eventually all would be happy with his decision and celebrate his success (Three of Cups).
Creative Tarot: The Rider-Waite-Smith differed from most decks in one important aspect: for the first time since the Sola Busca, all of the cards, including the Minor Arcana, were fully illustrated with human figures and other symbolic imagery. This is the full separation mark of the tarot from a deck of playing cards to a deck of divination cards. And this is where much of the meaning of the Minor Arcana cards became consolidated. Most of that is due to Smiths artwork. Waite wrote a few guides to the tarot, manuals on how to interpret each card, but Smiths imagery is what people remember, not Waites definitions. Waite believed it was his writings and scholarship that would newly define the tarot, but it turns out that sometimes the brush is even more powerful than the pen.
Complete Book of Tarot: You must get certified by an ‘official’ tarot organization to become a legitimate reader (as far as I know, the tarot community has not yet elected a Pope or Papess).
