The Card of the Day: The Three of Cups
“Radiance, warmth, and charisma.”
The Three of Cups portrays the famous three Graces from Greek mythology. The Graces (also called Charities) each stood for attributes you can embrace to elevate your personal environment and energy, from depressive to delightful. We get our word "Charisma" from the three Charities (Graces). Charisma is that magical energy that seems to make some people “likable,” and others not so much. Charisma is not necessarily an attribute that only a few people have. Anyone can develop and increase their personal charisma by raising the energy of their environment.
Does the energy in your environment feel bogged down? Do you feel too distracted by stress to even think about lightening up? Did you know that you can make your world happier by embracing your own charismatic energy?
The Three of Cups depicts the three Graces in their unique colors: red, white, and gold. The names of the Graces are Euphrosyne, Aglaea, and Thalia.
Euphrosyne is in the red robe. Her name means “to delight, cheer, gladden.” Euphrosyne shows that our environment becomes more vibrant when we embrace our humor. Any time we make someone’s day better with a smile, or lift the energy with laughter we are channeling her gift. Euphrosyne's message is "lighten up!" Red is the color of courage, vitality, and passion.
Aglaea is in the white robe. Her name means “radiance, bright splendor, and light.” Every time you are sharing your inner radiance, you are embracing her gift. When you are in tune with your inner light, you actually make a safe space around you. This causes others to feel safe enough to open up to you. When you look into another's eyes and see that their inner light is also sacred and radiant, you are touching Aglaea's gift. White is the color of purity, truth, and Spirit.”
Thalia is in the golden robe. Her name means “to warm, to foster, to bloom.” Each time you nurture something (a talent, a dream, a child) and see it through to fruition you are embodying Thalia energy. Tending to your hopes and wishes makes life meaningful. Thalia brings success through gentle tending of your goals. She also teaches that lifting the energy of others is the quickest way to boost your own feelings of self worth and value. Gold is the color of success, wealth, and the warmth of the sun.
Everyone can embrace their charisma. Some individuals are just better at tapping into it. Like everything, the more you use it, the better it gets. Charisma raises energy. It transforms the feeling of a place as if by magic. That is why talented people with tons of charisma get top dollar. We want them to raise our energy through music, words, and entertainment.
Tap into your personal charisma today through humor, expressing your light, and radiating warmth and kindness to others. It's time to use the gifts of the Graces.
