The Energy of Three

Magnetic Three can charm you. Three pulls you into adventures, but beware: these may actually be ill-conceived tragedies in the making. Along the way, you will certainly laugh and enjoy yourself because Three is hilarious and great with people. But, you’ll be left to figure out the fall-out while impetuous Three flits off to the next project.

Three is creative. In fact, Three is passionate about expression and is compelled to convey thoughts, feelings and personal perspectives through writing, speaking and creating visual representations.

Three has a high degree of emotional intelligence. Like Two, Three can consider multiple perspectives. Unlike Two, three can synthesize them into collective narratives, telling a story that encompasses both perspectives. Beyond compromise, this is an understanding of the context that creates divergent perspectives in the first place. Understanding that context will allow you to understand what dictates each perspective and how to find a better balance between them.

The Message of Three

When it shows up in your life, Three may be urging you to do your due diligence. If you are at the start of a new project and Three shows up, it is time to dot your i(s) and cross your t(s). Playful three is known for being scattered and successful projects require planning and organization. The long term viability of your venture requires your attention.

Three may also show up when you’re not looking at the big picture of some situation. Three urges you to look beyond divisiveness and consider the context that created the polarity in the first place. Often adjusting the metanarratives active in that context will create the most beneficial result for everyone involved. Step back, and look at more than your point of view as well as its opposite.

Three also suggests that you examine yourself for vanity and impulsivity. While confidence and enthusiasm are remarkable gifts, self-reflection and accountability are required to embody them responsibly. Be willing to examine your own actions rather than emulating spoiled, selfish Three.
