The meaning of the Three of Wands Tarot card is ‘teamwork.’ You have a chance at obtaining a successful relationship with someone you have your eyes on. However, it’s typical for the Three of Wands to symbolize work or business opportunities that may impact a partnership.
Three of Wands General Tarot Meaning
Most Wand cards deal with work, business, and creativity: the Three of Wands is no different. The Three of Wands is a card of trade and commerce. Trade will happen not just locally but on an international scale. You could be shipping your products off to faraway lands. Alternatively, you could find yourself traveling overseas for business.
The Three of Wands advises that you look toward unfamiliar terrain for opportunities. Don’t go with the same-old-same-old you’re used to. Look toward places and cultures you’ve never experienced before. You may find a hidden gem.
Many readers struggle to separate the Three and Two of Wands because they can both predict a need for cooperation. Although similar, the Three of Wands advises you to work in teams (whereas the Two of Wand’s meaning is about a partnership, usually among only two people, and no more than three).
Teamwork makes dreams work, and this is true when the Three of Wands makes an appearance. You could find yourself having to work on relationships – even ones that are a pain in the ass – to complete what you set out to achieve. Therefore, although the Three of Wands is usually a positive card, it can be negative if you have to work with people you don’t like.
Three of Wands Love Tarot Meaning
In a love Tarot reading, the Three of Wands can predict the unwanted insertion of someone else into your relationship. They may think they’re helping you or your partner, but you know what they say: two is company, three is a crowd.
Sometimes, the Three of Wands can mean that you and your partner work well as a team. However, be careful that everything doesn’t become too stale and routine. Remember to spice things up a bit from time to time.

Three of Wands Feelings Tarot Meaning
If you’re unsure where you stand with your partner or what their feelings are toward you, don’t worry, as all will become clear soon. In this case, the Three of Wands symbolizes an opportunity for clarity. Obviously, this doesn’t tell you what will happen after you receive this newfound clarity, but all will be revealed soon enough (Wands are quick cards).
Three of Wands Career & Business Tarot Meaning
The meaning of the Three of Wands in a career context is pretty obvious and straightforward. Just like the Two of Wands, a Three of Wands in a career Tarot reading can mean that you have to work with team members. The Three of Wands will also pop up when you collaborate with many people on a project.
Another meaning for the Three of Wands is that you must trade either internationally or online. The demand in your local area may not be high enough to fund the lifestyle you’re craving. There are better opportunities for you overseas. In some cases, the Three of Wands can mean that you will take your business entirely online and live a laptop lifestyle.
Three of Wands Future Tarot Meaning
The Three of Wands predicts that you will have a chance for clarity in the future. If you’re currently unsure which direction you’ll be going in, all will become clear to you in the coming days, weeks, and months. The Tarot cards in the Wands suit are usually quite quick, so you shouldn’t have to wait long.
When it lands in an outcome or future position, the Three of Wands predicts that you will get the opportunity to work in teams in the future. Socially, you may take up a hobby that will involve you cooperating with groups of people.
