The Three of Disks

The Three of Disks

Disks represent earthen manifestation in its many forms, and few cards in the deck do so with such vigor. The Three of Disks is the card of the inspired craftsperson. Whether it is a sculpture, a novel, or a business deal, the energetic fire of Mars is applied to the ambitious leaps of our earthy, goat-faced friend Capricorn. Such a vigorous combination might normally let things get a bit wild and crazy, but the Saturnine shrewdness of Binah is there to make certain our hooves push off of solid stone rather than wobbly, avalanche-prone scree.

If the Three of Disks shows up in a reading, it means that whatever project you might be working on is destined for success. This does not mean that it is time to kick your feet up and get lazy, however. Diligence and elbow grease will remain necessary ingredients, but you shall soon find your labors both enjoyable and deliciously fruitful.
