Three of Water, New Orleans Voodoo Tarot


Theme: sacrifice, "give to receive"

Card: Three of Water - Manman Brigitte ('3 of Cups')
"Manman Brigitte is change, she is closely associated with Kali. She is fearsome only when she is resisted."
"Her primary attribute is wise judgement. Falsehood withers at her touch."

Another traditional take on C3:
"This card is both a portent of celebration and cause for it. It tells of great happiness in the future for you, and not of the passing kind, but secure joy which will last and be shared with those around you. Commonly associated with the completion of a meaningful project, or, even more likely, a birth." (trustedtarot)

I described it shortly yesterday - the feeling of bliss.
'Secure Joy' - receiving after giving - the 'giving' here being 'letting go'. The 'letting go of control and let life unfold itself'. The 'sacrifice' being the 'sacrifice of control' - acceptance of that nothing, in truth, can be controlled. Death can be just around the corner for everyone, every second of their life!
And (card), life becomes resistant only when change is resisted.
