THREE OF WANDS: VIRTUE.
This card is a Christmas Card, for it is about the Union of Chokma (Masculine Energy Conscious-King) and Binah (Feminine Energy Conscious-Queen) and the resulting birth of the Prince which is Tiphareth (Beauty) on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. Astrologically, the entrance of the Sun (circle with a center dot) into Aries ( the V sign at the bottom) heralds the Spring.
This is the harmonious union of I (Chokma), Am (Binah) and Me (the Personality). It is Spiritual Integrity, as the three aspects of Spirit are conjoined. Virtue, is always being true to yourself ; this Truth being the union of spirit, body and mind conjoined in agreement. Some people would call this listening to your heart and acting with heart felt determination. Without self-trust, Virtue is not possible and our self-dishonesty will make us victims of our own deceit. This card reminds us to clarify and redefine out Identity to the Original Form of I AM Me and no longer accept identity form those around us and/or our environment. We are not Man-Made, we are Spirit---a spiral energy conscious that spins through time-space building self-images. All of us are the Princes and Princesses of The Divine King and Queen of this Universe, i.e. Children of God who inherit the Universe.
This card represents great strength in individual expression which when ill defined, can also mean egocentricity which may manifest as pride and conceit. Pride and conceit are easily avoided by treating others as you want to be treated, although achieving that without Virtue is not so easily done. This card also symbolizes the Fire of Will, and increasing energy known as the inner fire and/or inner light; the spiritual power that is inherent in our bodies.
Often we have heard the name of God defined as I AM. We have forgotten what that the birth of self-image is called "ME", yet many of our religions say that we are made in God's image which should give us a clue! This card is about the creation of the Inner Fire that builds the Life of the Outer Self! All of us have inherited this Inner Fire that defines Beauty in this physical world...and we are that Definition! To me, Christmas is the time where we accept our Beauty and look upon the Beauty that lives all around us. We love that inner fire that lights the dark manger of our outer bodies. By being true to yourself, virtue is defined in your actions. I AM ME and by being the best Me I can be...I see the best you! Each of us is another way to be Me and know that Me is all about possibilities and is not written in non-flowing stone...it's written in the flow of Light! We are the Children of Stars who came to enlighten the children of Planets by making them in our own image, i.e. imagination. So Adopt your Body with loving acceptance---as you would the Christ Child-------------because it is the child of the Inner Light! Virtue built the body, so it could Be itself! Virtue states," I Am the Will and the Way, and I own the Day"! Remember, we can't have days, unless we have forms made of time-space. My body, makes my day! To Love my body is to have a day of love.... to not love being, is to not be and that sadly states that we only have yesterdays. To avoid being "wanna-bees" (those who don't live in the now) we must remember our true Virtuous name---I AM and we must love the experience that name gives us ---"ME"!
