The Three of Pentacles is one of the Pip Cards, part of the Minor Arcarna.
In this card there are four people, an artisan and three onlookers. The artisan is carving a design of 3 pentacles into a standing stone. The three people at the side of the card watch with anticipation. Maybe it is their design that the artisan is carving. There is a ginger tabby cat smooching against the artisan’s foot.
This card speaks to me about skill and collaboration. The artisan is skilled and has already served his apprenticeship. He is now creating artwork for others. He is good at what he does because of the years of practice he has put in.
The time of your apprenticeship has ended. It is time to take the next step into your creative work. You are not a master yet, but but stepping out and working with others you will build a reputation. It’s time to move forward with your creative work. Perhaps it is time to start a creative business.
