3 of Pentacles

Craft, Artisanship, Expertise, Marriage

The 3 of Pentacles is all about doing the kind of work that fits you, and enjoying relationships of the same.

It’s interesting to see so many people involved in a relationship or career that doesn’t challenge them or bring out their best. But this is what a relationship or an occupation is for: to express one’s self in the world.

When the position is right for the person, the result is creative expertise and high-quality effects and products which make the world a better place for everyone.

Aristocracy used to imply “persons skilled in their craft or their position” before the disproportionate concentration of wealth created an overpowering elite class. Certain social privileges at the expense of the not-so-lucky creates much of the animosity and hostility seen around the globe.

But when workers are doing the creative work they’re skilled in, satisfaction in life tends to multiply, and so do the quality of relationships. Profit and benefits is the primary message of the 3 of Pentacles – a good omen all the way around.

The heart is lacking a certain fire. Or maybe progress in some life area has stalled. You might be overly focused on the big picture, which overwhelms you and keeps you from doing the necessary work. Relax so your authenticity can flow, take the simple, spontaneous approach, focus on immediate details, and craft your projects meticulously with your own unique signature, without worry about the outcome. In a project or relationship, allow things to take the course they’re going to take. Cultivate a healthy pride in your work, skills, health, or body image…. When you’re a master at your craft, you’re naturally inclined to branch out and share your tier with others.
