Three of Pentacles

Pentacles: manifestation, money, proof, prosperity 


  • skilled craftsman 
  • artist 
  • services for hire 
  • successful 
  • status symbols 

Here we see the craftsman who is skilled in the arts and sciences. His hard work is leading him through a rewarding career. Any commercial or business transaction conducted at this time should have a positive outcome. With a skillful use of artistic and creative abilities you can enjoy a sense of self confidence, worth and maturity. This is the proof that your financial goals are within reach.


  • poor financial planning 
  • insecurity 
  • creative talents blocked 
  • innocence 
  • selfishness 

There seems to be a lack of skill, ignorance and selfishness. There could be an inability to concentrate or establish appropriate goals. There is a feeling of insecurity. This is the card of an author or musician who is struggling with such things as writing blocks or creative talents. Use caution and try not to preoccupy yourself with less desirable goals. Find a way to get back in touch with your higher self. This may help to remove the blockage and allow your creative talents to flow more freely again.
