Three of Coins

Rider Waite (Pamela Colman Smith 1909): Three of Coins

Coins are also referred to as pentacles and may be represented by a five pointed star in a circle, or a coin decorated with a five pointed star. They correspond to the playing card suit of Diamonds. This suit represents the element Earth, and the social class of Merchants. Coins are considered a Feminine suit. Coins typically represent material wealth and possessions, the body and health, and the environment of the questioner.

The Threes typically concern action, production, creativity, early results, mastery, achievement, birth, or loss. They can represent groups, or "three's a crowd" situations. Three can also represent the synthesis of a thesis and antithesis.

Teamwork. Initial fulfilment. Collaboration. Learning.

Positive attributes of the Three of Coins in a spread include the mastery of a skill in trade or work, achieving perfection, artistic ability, and dignity through renown, rank, or power.

Reversed Meaning: Lack of teamwork. Disregard for skills.

Negative attributes of this card include a warning against sloppiness resulting in a lower quality outcome, a lack of skill, banal ideas, and preoccupation with off-task concerns.
