Three of Pentacles Tarot Card Description

Three is a number connected to working with others and communicating. When you combine this with the suite of Pentacles (also known as Coins) which is associated with money, paid employment and possessions, you can be sure that others will play a major role in money related matters.

Upright Meaning

This is not the time to be going it alone, your best work, and by extension, your best chance of good results, will be as part of a team. If you want to reap riches or gain some goods, you need to be organised and follow instructions. There will be some hard work involved, but your efforts should be well rewarded. The Three of Pentacles emphasises the areas of skill, competence and professional growth, so promotions, learning and study are all important now. Nevertheless, this does not mean you should, or need to be, a cog in a machine. Rather, you need to be like a medieval craftsperson building a beautiful cathedral, willing to work well with others to achieve a good result, but always aware of your own talents and gifts. The Three of Pentacles encourages you to work in an area you feel passionate about and where you can do your own thing. This could suggest a change in your career or involving yourself in politics or charity. It could even mean that you may decide to leave work and take on a more domestic role, if that is where your heart and skills truly lie. With a little effort, you should be able to create the right kind of environment and enterprise for success. The Three of Pentacles encourages you to feel proud of your talents and potential, and to confidently let others appreciate them too (which is definitely not the same as blowing your own trumpet).

Reversed Meaning

No-one could accuse you of being work-shy, but sometimes you don’t seem to draw any benefit or praise for your actions. You could find yourself facing a number of problems or delays. Be honest, are these caused by poor planning, poor delegation or lack of experience? If so, what can you do to improve the situation? It could be that you find yourself being criticised, if so, you may feel unfairly treated - but is this actually the case? It could be that you worry too much what other folks think. Or is it that you are too close to a project to see your way through the trees? Step back a bit to get a clearer view.
