Three of Wands — Spiritual Message of the Day
In the RWS deck, this card is often seen as a depiction of a merchant watching his ships sailing out to sea on a commercial venture. But as the ships sail away, he loses control over what happens next, and he has to wait patiently, trusting in providence that their voyage will be successful. Consequently, we may see in this card the spiritual practice of releasing the results and consequences of our actions and enterprises to the Divine. Of course it is important that we take action—that we do what’s right—but at some point we must let go and say to the Divine, “Let thy will be done.”
This is more than just a matter of trust and faith, though. Releasing our need to always control the results of our actions and even the course of our lives is also an act of non-attachment to the material world. And this is a vital step in our journey toward the realization of our divine Self.
