Considered by the ancient Greeks to be the perfect number, three represents the union of mind, body and spirit and for Christians it is a symbol of Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Three signifies life, freedom, vitality, inner strength, completion, imagination, creativity, energy and self-exploration. Three stands for trilogy, as in the past, present, and future or father, mother, and child. For Freud, three is a symbol of the male genitals. It can also indicate impatience, overconfidence and relationship troubles, as in ‘three is a crowd’. Its shape is the triangle, which is a symbol of the creative force. Three is the number of the Empress Tarot card, which represents the feminine principles of fertility and nurture.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

Three is tense, dynamic, rhythmic, and complete (the Holy Trinity). Three is a symbol of the spirit, since it is assigned to the third stage of human consciousness (after the physical and emotional). In the Middle East, three is considered a holy number.

It is always connected to time: past, present, future. In ancient Rome the Fates almost always appear as three goddesses. Since ancient times femininity has been seen in three aspects: the virgin (Artemis), the woman (Hera), and the old woman (Hekate). Faust calls out three times until Mephisto appears. Peter denies Christ three times. Doing the same thing three times has magical effects— it represents the connection to reality.

According to Freud, refers to male genitalia. Jung considers three a mystical number; the three servants of the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute; the three witches in Macbeth; the three wishes that are free. All this relates back, as do many god-trinities, to the original trinity: father-mother-son.

It is the male child, since the number three, according to Western tradition, is uneven and, as a prime number, a genuine male number. In this tradition, the male child is seen first in terms of male fertility.

According to Jung, the number three is connected to the diabolical.

The den of craving in alchemy is depicted by a three-headed snake.

The three-headed snake in mythology is always Satan. Also, according to Jung, three belongs to the young; and in ancient China and the Greek patriarchy, it points to masculine attributes and their function.

On the other hand, Three as a feminine number is part of the tradition in the area of the Mediterranean, through the veneration of Mary in Catholicism and the rediscovery of the matriarchy. Also, Goethe’s play Faust, Part II, ends with a prayer to the great goddess appearing threefold: “Virgin, Mother, Queen.”

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

Three is considered the number of the Holy Trinity and therefore sacred.

It is vibrant and alive with hope and possibility.

To dream of a three is not in itself significant but must be considered as a whole with the dream, whether or not is religious, etc., and then you will be able to tie it in to get a true reading.

Encyclopedia of Dreams | Michael and Elizabeth Thiessen

Three refers to something combative and masculine. Religions see in the number Three the trinity (God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost). Wherever the Three appears there is also energy. Three is an effective, holy, but also dangerous number. In many dreams Three announces that «jme- thing new is happening—when, for instance, you look at a watch or clock in your dream and it is 3 o’clock. Three is the number of Jupiter. Three-people strive for success, but will follow instructions from a boss without complaining. They earn* out assignments responsibly and are very ambitious.

The Three-person is creative and steadfast, loves partying, dancing, and being in love. Three-ness produces all things.

In general, Three always points to something new that is created from things that have already existed. Negatives and positives can be united—in the external as well as in your personality. It could possibly indicate a desire to have a child (two want to create something new), or might start a new business or a new project together with other people. See Jupiter.

Three-people have birthdays on the third, 12th, or the 30th day of a month.

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

When two are gathered, eventually their energy will create a new element, and a third is born. Three is the number of creativity and is a powerful energy. There are many examples of the concept of three: mother, father, and child is perhaps the most universal.

The Holy Trinity in Catholicism is another instance.

The artist, the paint, and the finished work is just one case that can be applied to any creative endeavor. In music, a triad is the simplest and perhaps most pleasing harmony. In the world of geometry, it is only when you have three points to work with that you can create an actual shape.

The shadow challenge of three is a lack of grounding and separation from reality. This is because three relates so strongly to the drive to create that feeling unable to do so would be the fear-based side of this energy.

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences | Tony Crisp

(1) The number three may symbolize completeness and fulfilment; or anything that may contribute to your personal fulfilment - for example, the resolving of conflict between two opposing psychic forces.

(2) Jung says three may signify that something is nearly but not quite complete; or that what is lacking in you can be supplied only by some part of your unconscious self that you find too frightening to acknowledge and use. (Even God, he says, is not complete without the Devil.) See also Four.

The upper case is the area in which the extended up strokes are found in tall letters like b, d, h and t. The middle case is the central region occupied by letters with neither long up strokes nor down strokes, such as a, c, e, m, n, o, etc. The lower case is the area occupied by down stroke letters such as g, j, p, etc. Look where the emphasis of the writing is as this is where the emphasis of the personality lies....
