3 of Clouds – Osho Zen Tarot deck

I. The Explanation of Three of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot

In our society, men are often taught not to cry, to keep a strong facial expression on things when they get hurt, and not show that they are in pain. But women can also fall into this situation, and we all at some point realize that the only way to survive is to get rid of all our emotions so we don’t get hurt again. If our pain is too deep, we tend to hide it from ourselves.

This makes us frozen, harsh because deep down we know that just a small crack in the ice is enough to free the hurt to start circulating through us again. The rainbow-colored tears on this person’s face hold the key to breaking out of this ‘ice-olation’. Tears, and only the tears, hold the power to melt the ice. It’s okay when we cry, and there’s no reason to be ashamed of those tears. Crying helps us to let go of pain, allow us to be softer to ourselves, and ultimately heal our wounds.

II. The Energy of Three of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings …




Protection, Sedge and Rushes, a Moose

This is about the control of emotions. During transition periods, changing the course of life and accelerated self-change, it is important not to rush into emotions, either positive or negative. Remember that early action and right conduct are the only real protection. No matter whether your business flourishes or fades, don’t worry. Maybe you don’t win, but you will never lose, because you will always learn from what has happened. Moderation and civility are the strengths of the protective forces of this rune.

Witch’s Rune



Travel, birds, communication, messages from the other side, soaring at great heights, fast moving, news

The Flight Rune brings otherworldly news or reminds us of some form of communication, be it spoken or written. Birds are sacred animals and messengers to the heavens and to the gods.



Idad, Idho, or Iodhadh

Pronunciation – Ee-dad or ee-yoh

Tree Association – Yew

Meaning – Ancestry, history, aging, dying, transitions, thoughts, and memory. Idad can represent the wisdom that comes from elders and the strength we now have from ancestors who came before us. Aging is not to be feared but celebrated! Not everyone is lucky enough to have gray hairs, and it’s truly something to be grateful for. Idad is also a fantastic representation of the natural cycle and connects back to the first Ogham (Beith), representing joyful beginnings.

If reversed – Physical death, sadness, and mourning. Death is inevitable for us all. However, it’s essential to reflect on the cycle of our life as well as others. In the natural cycle of life, endings come with new beginnings.

Inscription and Magical Uses – Helpful when trying to connect with ancestors, meditation, or when contemplating life and the natural cycle.

Folklore – The Yew tree is deeply connected to the Druids and their history. It was considered sacred, and many built their temples around them.
