Three people stand beneath an arch of the cathedral in this image of the Three of Pentacles. On the left of the Three of Pentacles is a stonemason standing on a bench holding a hammer and chisel in his hand. The stonemason has turned to look at two people standing on the ground across from him.
One man is a monk, head shaved as an initiate of the order, wearing the grey robes of the Hermit. Next to the monk is perhaps a nun. The monk and the nun are showing a blueprint for the mason to follow in constructing the church. Above them, in the archway is the three of pentacles carved in stone to decorate the interior architecture.
The church walls are gray, revealing an unfinished quality of the work – this card is about the process. The people in this card seem to be working together – highlighting themes of teamwork and collaboration. The imagery also reveals the skill – specialization – understanding, and mastery required in completing the work in a detail-oriented fashion.
From a deeper esoteric standpoint – one of the mysteries is being revealed. The Monk is the Brother of Light of the Atlantean mystery schools. The Nun is a Sister of the Rose of the Lemurian mystery schools. Both are specialized Master Adepts of the Universities in Sirius. When a soul chooses to incarnate into this plane – a Master and Lady of the Light are assigned as guides to that soul. This has nothing to do with hierarchy – only specialization. You want someone that truly specializes in tarot to read the cards for you, rather than someone fresh out of learning a course in tarot.
The stonemason is an initiated soul working on his specialization. The stonemason is an initiate mastering the qualities of his Soul Ray and the blueprint holds the information about the personality and the full potentiality of that soul. The soul through the mask of ego creates a masterpiece using the most minimal of raw materials. Alchemy is the great work of physically building our Light Body.
This specialty has taken thousands of lifetimes of constructing and refining the mind, body, and soul. Our soul is building the Temple of SOLOMON – a Temple of the SUN – where our own SOURCE can fully descend. A ray of light (RA) matures through many lifetimes to realize itself as an EL (God). Then rising as an ATEN (Christ) merges with AMEN (SOURCE).
The three of pentacles is the gate of life and death. It represents the events, people, places and things that come to define you – because they are the hammer and chisel that will break away at you.
Binah rules threes in the tarot. Binah highlights themes related to self-discovery, information, understanding, and integration. In our path of self-discovery, we start getting a grasp of who we really are at soul level by discovering ALL that WE are NOT.
The nun holds a blueprint in her hands – the soul will, therefore, need a mask – an identity – prior to incarnation – as well as work collaboratively with other souls – hence the contracts – that will assist the soul in its great work. This is where relationships, friendships, family, and ancestors come into play. Through the identity of Ego – the TEMPLE of self is constructed. Ego is a gift, not a curse or something to get rid of – it is to be integrated in a way that it serves the higher will of the soul. Through the mask of Ego – the libido – creative energy of the Soul is channeled and expressed.
Threes are the process, that takes patience, endurance, and a keen attention to detail – therefore three of Pentacles highlights the themes of commitment, specialization, and mastery.
So how does all this play out in the physical world?
When we enter the gates of human incarnation – we play out the themes we came to explore. Our ancestors and their societal, cultural and religious concepts and understanding, plays an integral role in our lives – that is the SEED of the ACE – the raw material. Then in the twos, we have a decision to make – hence the juggling. Once we make a decision and commit to it we enter the process of the threes. Now in the threes, we attract relationships – lovers and friends – partnerships and choose careers to assist us in building something for ourselves and those we love. We even go to school and specialize in something – most of the time – that is best reflective of our current paradigm. THAT process then defines our lives and we build our foundation based on who we THINK ourselves to be.
But then the projects fail, the relationships – be it with lovers and friends go sour and people move on. The career we thought we truly wanted no longer satisfies. We go through a crisis of self – feeling constantly challenged by the very relationships with people, places, things and beliefs we held dearly. Life seems to fall apart because the foundation was faulty. It was being built on the foundation of WHO we are NOT.
We discover who we are by uncovering and letting go of who we are NOT. We choose to either breath life into something or put an end to it – over time we become wiser and learn to embrace and release with greater ease, and we develop spiritual maturity. Our hard work ensures success in all areas of our lives.
Three of Pentacles in a reading advises you to create a strategy that will assist you to complete the initial phases of a project or goal. Once you have created a strategy building solid foundations for your long-term goals becomes easier. Call on Archangel Camael with help in creating a plan and Archangel Metatron with help to stay organized and effectively manage your schedule. If that is not your cup of tea, you can always ask the assistance of a mentor to guide you.
Invest in you! Mentors bring new ideas to the table and keep you accountable and focused.
Since the Three of Pentacles is connected to our community and social networks, in the process of building something that is unique you may feel discouraged because too many people seem to be offering the same service that you are. Realize that you are unique because of your experiences are unique. Therefore, don’t be afraid to work hard, commit and follow through, you have NO competitors because your clients are a vibrational match to you because we create social contracts with others prior to entering this physical plane.
