This weeks randomly drawn card is the Three of Pentacles from The Wild Unknown Tarot. Pentacles talk of earthly endeavours and so for me, this card tells of a challenging and arduous task where teamwork and collaboration will be imperative to getting the job done.Although the mountain to be scaled looks dark and foreboding, and positively treacherous in places, the energy of the three pentacles working together indicates that they are up to the task.
The pentacles are red, blue and yellow…..the primary colours out of which all other hues are created. Red represents passion, action and energy; blue symbolises communication and emotion; yellow signifies the mind, imagination and inspiration. All these aspects are essential, and part and parcel of the solidarity and unity of working together on a project.
The primary colours also signify that there is a full spectrum of skills, qualities, abilities and talents which have been brought to the table by the team collaborating to get this job done. It is important to use the skill sets of the individuals involved for the benefit of the whole team.
To sum up then, the road ahead may be rocky and challenging in places and it will be hard to pull off. However everything required is available and the sense of achievement in the end will be so worth it.
Today it is important to collaborate with others to achieve your aims. People bring different things to the party, so utilise the strengths, talents and skills of the people around you to overcome any roadblocks or challenges you come up against. Remember that the synergy within a group can move mountains when focused in a positive direction.
Daily Card – Three of Pentacles
It’s interesting that since the beginning of the year virtually all the cards that I’ve drawn have been either Major Arcana or Pentacles cards! Is this reinforcing that big changes are coming, and the way to get the best results is through practical application and hard work? It seems that the time for contemplation is over and action is very much the order of the day now. So, onto today’s card, the Three of Pentacles……
In the Dame Darcy deck there is a different symbolism to the Rider Waite where it is seen as being very much about collaboration. This card speaks to me more about the need to collaborate or co-create with the Universe.
The mermaid is portrayed as a sculptor creating something beautiful and lasting. She is putting all her skills to work, chipping away at the block of stone and honing and perfecting her expertise as she goes. This says to me that now is the time to get stuck in and “just do it”. Don’t worry about being good enough as with hard work and practice I will improve as I go along.
This card confirms once again that the time for studying has passed and now the best results can be achieved by “doing”. It is telling me to do something that I love; something where time stands still and I feel in the zone and going with the flow of life! This will fill me with spiritual riches and fulfilment. It is also hinting that by doing this thing…..tarot, in my case….abundance and material reward will follow, as symbolised by the open treasure chest full of coins on the seabed.
I am excited to receive this card today in confirmation that I am heading in the right direction and on the right path.
