When our Tarot card for today, the 3 of Pentacles, conjures its way into your day, its message is to put your focus and dedication into mastering your craft.
This is one of the “work” cards from the suit of Pentacles (the other being the 8 of Pentacles), and it is a notice that success can be attained through focus and hard work. This is symbolized by the young man on the card, who is deep in thought as he writes and draws on the parchment before him. I see this as his being “entranced” by what he is doing; it’s like having that experience of being so consumed by what you’re doing that you lose all sense of time.
It is a positive card that says progress will be gradual—and it urges you to put your creative talents (the number 3 is the number of creativity and self-expression) to good use. Our friend on the card is using his talents wisely and creatively, and is gaining a quiet and solid satisfaction from his work as he advances in his craft.
Being a work card, this is a card that can suggest self-employment or work that builds into a long-term career (this is a good card that can indicate promotions and moving up the ladder).
Whatever the profession, the 3 of Pentacles is a solid indication that you have a reputation for the skill, talents, and abilities you possess (this is a card of having your work noticed by others).
It may be time to get into a formalized study program, as the 3 of Pentacles can indicate getting the education and training needed and obtaining a certificate or diploma.
Whatever the plan (this card is about implementing plans), now is the time to perfect your craft.
