Good morning, today is September 21, 2021, and I drew one card for you. It is the Three of Pentacles and is from the Minor Arcana deck. Where the Major Arcana focuses on events and situations that guide your overall life journey from the Fool to the World, the Minor Arcana focuses on situations that impact your day-to-day life.
In Tarot, we see circular journeys. The Major Arcana, also known as the Fool’s journey begins with 0 and ends with the 21st card- the World. At which point, the journey in human development begins again. The same type of journey is seen in the Minor Arcana with Aces signifying the start of events represented by the four suits (Wands, Pentacles, Cups, and Swords) that culminate or end with the 10 card of the suit. For example, the Ace of Pentacles may signify the beginning of a business venture, where as the 10 of Pentacles shows that the business has reached completion and has brought many rewards.
The Three of Pentacles speaks about business, but it may also symbolize other earthly matters. The number three is symbolic and represents team work. When I see the Three of Pentacles in a reading, I interpret it to mean a business venture that may involve three people or any situation where three people are in a group or team setting. I have drawn the Three of Pentacles in situations involving roommates where three people shared a residence, in polyamorous situations, for three best friends who were attending college together, and for work situations involving teams of three.
For today’s reading, I asked what type of energy we needed to embody and I drew the Three of Pentacles. This signifies that it’s time to work as a team. Many times, people want to tackle problems by themselves. However, this isn’t always workable and some tasks are better accomplished by more than one person than solo. You may have heard the saying that two heads are better than one, but with this tarot card, the saying could be that three heads are better than one.
There are several elements to the Three of Pentacles that include strategies, careful planning, preparing for the task at hand, and working diligently until the job is finished. When you see the Three of Pentacles, know that it is time to embrace teamwork and put aside any problems you may have working with others.
You can’t solve every problem yourself. Sometimes you have to rely on others and work as a team if you want to get the job done. True success isn’t just reaching the top but maintaining relationships with those who help you get there.
God bless you and read the tarot.
