Three of Pentacles :: Wild Unknown Tarot
Creator’s keywords: teamwork, determination

A mountain dominates the top portion of this card, but the three colorful pentacles below are equally eye-catching. There’s a sense of symmetry here. The mountain has three peaks, with the highest peak in the center. The pentacles form a similar pattern, but inverted.

The pentacles are red, blue and yellow – primary colors. These three colors are the building blocks that can lead into infinite color combinations. We see this happening in the card as the connecting lines combine to form new hues.

The Three of Pentacles is often associated with planning, blueprints and teamwork. We see that as these pentacles lend each other their unique energy, they are able to create something together. This is the type of growth that can only come from collaboration.

This card speaks of the tangible progress that can be when we use our unique skills and draw upon the unique skills of others. Progress doesn’t usually happen by accident. Progress happens when we actively engage in building, growing and strengthening.

In a reading, this card can ask you to consider the skills you currently need. What are you trying to accomplish? Do you have a clear method to get you there? What external resources can help you continue to climb your proverbial mountain?

You are capable of accomplishing heroic tasks, but you’ve got to tap into your true determination. Be respectful of the skills that others bring to the table, and let your own individual strengths shine through. You’ll only reach the summit if you find as much fulfillment in taking each step as you expect to find when your goal is complete.
