GOLDEN DAWN / QABALA
The Hermetic title for this card is ‘Lord of Abundance’
On the Tree of Life, the Number Three cards sit on the Sphiroth Binah which represents understanding. After the energy from the Divine enters Kether at the top of the Tree of Life, it next flows to Chokhmah. Chokhmah is the place of wisdom. The energy then flows onto Binah which is the feminine energy of understanding.

THREE OF CUPS REVERSED
When this card is reversed the partying and celebration has gotten out of control. There is probably drunkenness and wildness. There may be issues around friends and a breaking of connections. There may be a celebration but it ends up being an unhappy one. As usual surrounding cards can help you understand more about the Three of Cups. The Devil and the Three of Cups reversed could indicate wild parties and addiction.
Two important questions to consider with a reversed Three of Cups:
Why did you feel sad during the celebration? / Why are you feeling sad when you attend celebrations?
Do you feel when you celebrate that you overstep your limits and boundaries?
