Three of Pentacles – Meanings
Three of Pentacles Feeling Meaning
The feeling of this card in most decks is working and having your talents evaluated and negotiated for.
In political readings, the Three of Pentacles often refers to dark money and agreements that are made behind-the-scenes
The feeling of work being evaluated is very strong with this card and perhaps means getting noticed at work. It depends on the cards around it.
Three of Pentacles could be indicative that you are being evaluated to move up in the organization or that bigger and better things are ahead if you just keep your head down and keep turning out good work.
It is wonderful to learn a trade when you are young. Then the transition eventually happens if you are very good at what you do and you eventually excel at selling your goods or services.
It may be time to stick your nose in an old classic sales primer like ‘how to win friends and influence people’ or consider going to a trade show or meeting where potential customers have a chance to check you out.
Three of Pentacles Love Meaning
Mother-in-law troubles? This is the card of the third wheel. Is someone having more influence on your relationship than you? This card is less about a rival lover than it is a nosy friend or an authority figure not approving of you.
Three of Pentacles Money Meaning
Time to collect old debts and payments owed.
Stand up and be proud of the work that you have done. Be willing to take the payment in exchange.
Be willing to look someone in the eye and state the worth of your product without backing down.
Your time is worth plenty.
Three of Pentacles Health Meaning
Perhaps it is time to bring in the counselor.
Every relationship can benefit from better communication. Sometimes that communication is easier when you invite a third-party in.
You can grind yourself down with non-stop work. Be sure to keep all of your annual checkup appointments.
Three of Pentacles Yes/No Meaning
This is a yes card. It is even more so if pulled in a business spread. This is the card of a contract signed and deals done.
It is also the card of your work speaking for itself. Quality goods bring quality prices.
Three of Pentacles Reversed Meaning
Instead of building a cathedral, you feel like you’re just laying bricks.
Three of Pentacles reversed indicates the fact that your joy and fulfillment in your talents and the hard work you put in is not really getting noticed.
It could mean a nosy third party is back talking and distracting. They may be leaving negative reviews and drawing attention away from the good work that you do.
Three of Pentacles can also mean that deals done in the dark take precedent over the thing that you are trying to create in the light.
Forces are at work and agreements are in place that you may not be aware of.
