Three of Pentacles Tarot card meaning

The 3 of Pentacles (read Three of Pentacles) depicts, in its classic image, three figures standing in a temple near a pillar. Two of them, looking like monks, are admiring the work of the third person, who is a kind of craftsman. He is standing on a bench, and in his hands he holds the tool of his work that he is currently doing. On the pillar we also see the symbol of three pentagrams inscribed in circles and surrounded by glyphs of the earth decorating it. The whole symbolizes the hidden forces that govern the life of each of us. The Three of Pentacles, on the other hand, indicates some kind of work, or even cooperation between three persons or parties to the questioned matter. It is therefore a kind of commission performed by a craftsman for the benefit of those he judges, so the direct meaning of the card alludes to matters related to earning money and following a career path. The Three of Pentacles is a sign of perfecting one's skills started on the Two of Pentacles, as well as full commitment to one's goals. It is a very good sign if you ask the Tarot about financial matters and always indicates the involvement of a third person. The Three of Pentacles also indicates self-employment, exams and promotions.

Reversed Three of Pentacles love, sex and relationships Tarot card meaning

For questions related to relationships and feelings, the reversed Three of Pentacles primarily refers to the negative influence of third parties on your relationship. The reversed Three of Pentacles also very often speaks of threesomes and controlled betrayal that you both agreed to, but in the end it is destructive to your relationship. This card can also indicate a lack of commitment between partners, which can block further development of this relationship. The current situation, and the problems you have faced, mean that you need to put in even more work together to ensure that your relationship survives this crisis. Instead, however, each of you is focusing on the other, which is adding to the current problems and feelings of apathy towards each other. Perhaps there is nothing lacking in your relationship at the moment in emotional matters, but you are unable to translate your love into constructive and practical action, especially in material matters. What will help you in all this is the understanding that you are one team that can only emerge victorious through cooperation and collaboration. If, on the other hand, you want to find a new person for a relationship then you need to put a lot more work into your efforts than you are currently doing.
