When The Number Three reversed appears in a reading, it again tells you to embrace your feminine qualities. This applies to men too. We are all a mixture of masculine and feminine qualities. The Number Three reversed indicates that you have been suppressing or neglecting your feminine side and need to embrace it in order to bring your masculine and feminine energies into balance. You may be focusing too much on the material and mental aspects of life, rather than the emotional and spiritual when this major card appears. The disharmony indicated by The Number Three reversed can take many forms. You may be putting others needs before your own to your detriment. Or you may feel so emotionally overwhelmed that you are neglecting those that are important to you. You may also feel unattractive and undesirable and your confidence has taken a knock. You will need to shift the focus and ground yourself to correct this imbalance. It can be a signifier of empty-nest syndrome for the parents of grown up children. It can also be an indicator of mother issues affecting you depending on its placement in a spread.
Life Path Number Three is an archetype of feminine power; she is watery, hard to fathom, mysterious, fertile, and sexual. She augurs a need for us to be in touch with our feminine side, to listen to our intuition, and to give priority to our emotions and passions. Life Path Number Three does not play by the rules. She has her own way of doing things and her own idea of what is right and what is wrong in any and all endeavors. That doesn’t mean she will always get her way, but she is a reminder not to ignore your creative and intuitive side. She can signify coming abundance but don’t make the mistake of thinking that that will always mean financially. There are many types of wealth and richness in life and money is only one of them. Life Path Number Three can encompass any or all of them.
