Three of Cups
The Three of Cups indicates a time of happiness! This card can mean that you're going to reunite with a group of friends or family soon. It can mean you're going to attend a celebration of some sort, be it your own or someone else's. This card to it's core just represents a group of people coming together that care for each other deeply - however that looks for you.
This group of people are the ones you can turn to for comfort, love and understanding. This is your support group - they have your back and you have theirs.
This group could be of people you've known your whole life, it could be a group you've formed at work or school, or it could be a group of friends that you have only just met, but you all connect on an unexplainable level.
If you have any problems that revolve around your social life, know that this card is here to tell you that those difficult times are about to end.
Card in Reverse:
In reverse, this card can suggest that you may not have time to socialize with friends - or you feel like you have more important things to do. Life is just too busy for you right now.
This card is here to remind you that keeping your relationships strong is important. It's possible that you could start to lose touch with your support team if you don't make the effort to socialize with them.
Alternatively, this card can mean that there is some discord or imbalance in your friend group. There could be a bit of gossip going on, causing some separation. There even may be a bit of jealousy or hidden feelings of resentment. You might be feeling isolated and like you no longer belong in the group.
If you feel comfortable doing so, maybe it would be wise to open up to your friends. Don't accuse anyone of anything, but ask questions. There may just be a bit of a misunderstanding or unfair assumptions being made.

Upright: In love, the Three of Cups can suggest celebrations and gatherings! If you are single, there is a good chance that you may find a special someone at a social gathering. Or you may find that you and someone you've been flirting with will grow closer at gathering soon. A close friendship could turn into a romantic relationship.
If you are pursuing or coupled, being around those you both love some how has a strong effect on the two of you, causing you both to feel more affectionate and comfortable.
Another meaning this card can have in love, is that you and your partner are considering adding a third to your relationship. A polymerous life is appealing to both of you and you feel excited about this idea.
Reversed: It's possible that you may be feeling like a third wheel right now. Two of your friends seem to be getting closer, leaving you to feel a bit isolated, jealous and lonely. Try talking to your friends and expressing your feelings in a gentle way. Your feelings are important too.
Alternatively, if you are in a relationship, you could find that a third party is trying to get in between you and your partner. Maybe someone is flirting with your partner, or with you. This person could be trying to break you two up. Perhaps right now is a good time to focus on your partner and strengthen your bond.
Upright: There may be something worth celebrating at work! You could have hit a milestone, someone had a promotion, perhaps someone important is retiring, or it may be someone's birthday. Whatever it is, it's brightened up the whole place, causing everyone to feel more social than normal.
Alternatively, the environment at work feels really positive right now. It's easier to collaborate with others at this time. People are supportive and it's made work feel less like work.
If you don't have a job right now, that may soon change! This card is all about celebrations. Perhaps soon you will have something to celebrate - a new job!
Reversed: Things may feel like they are not going as planned right now. Something feels unbalanced in the work place and you seem to be butting heads with others.
There may bit a bit of gossip or jealousy in the work place right now, causing things to feel toxic. Do your best to stay away from all the negativity, you don't want to add fuel to the fire. Just keep on trying your best and this will all blow over soon.
