It has only been a week since we got the 3 of Wands as our daily Tarot Soul Coaching draw. When i pulled it for us again this morning, I decided to focus on a different facet of the card and maybe awaken your curiousity about Tarot correspondences. The two Angels from the Shemhamphorash that are associated with the 3 of Wands are Sitael and Elemiah, rulers of the second decan of Aries.
Sitael, a Seraphim, is a master builder and his name means ‘God of Hope.’ This angel is a lover of truth who protects us against the enemy if we stand firm in our truth. Sitael rules from 12.40 AM – 1. 00 AM. Sitael is the daytime ruler of the second decan of Aries.
Elemiah, a Seraphim, is a powerful angel who can help us set the course for co-creating our divine destiny. He also helps us sort true friends from potential traitors. He governs voyages. Elemiah means ‘The Hidden God.’ Elemiah rules between 1 AM and 1.20 AM. He is the nighttime ruler of the second decan of Aries.
In the 3 of Wands above, from the Tarot of the Angels, we see a man who is being prodded by a devil from behind, while the angel in front of him is trying to keep him safe. In contrast to the traditional RWS imagery, there are no ships on the horizon. This man is being tested and perhaps tempted to give up, or even to throw himself over the cliff-edge. The dark clouds in the background give this card an ominous feeling.
Based on the 3 of Wands imagery from the Tarot of the Angels, and because of the associated Angels, I feel we are being invited by Spirit to look at if we feel safe and supported as we move forward with our plans and goals. If not, maybe now is a good time to spend some time in prayer and ask God to show us who we can trust, as well as the best way forward. Some of us may also need a divine boost when it comes to standing firm in our truth, so that we are not lead astray from our Path.
Normally, when the 3 of Wands shows up in a daily reading, it heralds a day of industry, progress and networking.
The angelic correspondences based on Sun in Aries are Michael (Sun) and Camael (Mars/Aries).
