The 3 of Wands is my “Bloodline” card.
From Phantasmagoria (companion book to the Tarot of Vampyres deck):
“…our Bloodline card depicts the challenges and quest of our life. Studying this card will unlock messages about your personal journey.”

3 of Wands
Lord of Established Strength

Sun in Aries:  The Sun symbolizes the Ego and our sense of identity. In Aries (ruled by Mars, the God of War) it gives strength, confidence, and initiative.
Number 3:  Self-expression, communication, development, the act of creation.
Herb:  Saffron

Creativity and skill, vision, growth, competence, manifestation.

Note the lizard (actually a salamander), which symbolizes the element of Fire.

The 3 of Wands contains the spirit of the true pioneer and points to initial success. There is still much to do, but the efforts you’ve sustained regarding a project are well-spent. Patience is not one of Aries’ viritues, but now is the time when it must be cultivated.

The God of War’s innate passionate nature means that as long as you remain focused and keep that creative fire fanned, you’ll see gains.

In this card, Aries is represented by the ram’s skull atop her scepter – while the symbol for the Sun (a circle with a dot in the center) can be seen on one of the ship’s sails.

“You have to be burning with ‘an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right.’ If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.”
– Steve Jobs (an Aries)
