Three of Pentacles

This tarot card brings out the element of creativity in the work we do. It could be a sign of new projects on the anvil, or of new ideas to which we will soon give form. This card acknowledges our hard work and blesses its results, instilling in us the belief that if we are driven to achieve perfection, our inherent strengths will make it happen. We are also gently informed to remain conscious to the achievement of finesse, and not just focus on the completion of the task at hand.

The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
