Three of Pentacles Description and Symbolism

Two men are in a church showing a third man what they have drawn. The drawing looks remarkably like the building they are standing in. It looks like they have plans and need the third man’s approval. Maybe they are asking for a loan to start their own business. One man is dressed in a jester’s outfit and the other is dressed as a monk. The jester’s costume indicates that the two men are just starting out. This is a new beginning for them. It also indicates diversity.

Threes in readings can indicate that there are three people involved. Many threes can indicate delays, but with the promise of future success.

Three of Pentacles in Love

The Three of Pentacles in love suggests that you met at work or on a social media website.

If you are asking about a love interest, the Three of Pentacles suggests that they are busy at work. They might be thinking about you, but work will take precedent. They could also already be in a relationship with someone else. Love triangles can be indicated by the Three of Pentacles, Three of Cups, Three of Wands and especially the Three of Swords.

Three of Pentacles as Feelings

Usually when the Three of Pentacles comes up in the feelings position the person feels superior to you in some way. They look down upon you and don’t think very well of you.

On the other hand, it can just indicate that they feel nothing much at all and are busy with other things in their life such as work, school or charity.

Three of Pentacles Reversed

The Three of Pentacles Reversed indicates a lack of cooperation. Plans may end up falling apart.

Refusals are indicated. If this is a work question, you may not get the job or loan you want. If you are in the position of leadership, you may have to make cut backs.

In love, the Three of Pentacles reversed is about setbacks and advises that you not take the invitation or proposal.

If in a relationship, you may have to cut ties with a partner. You (or the other person) believes themselves to be superior to the other person. This is a blockage due to triangles, setbacks, idleness or infidelity.

I had this card pop up the other day and thought of the song by Celine Dion, “Refuse to Dance.” Maybe you should just say no.
