Oracle Message: Success requires that you take action.


Material works, productivity, work and skill are just some of the keywords for the 3 of Pentacles and give you an indication of the day that lay before you. If you think “no pain, no gain”, think again. This card is all about doing a great job and enjoying it too.

If you’re decorating your home, building a new garden shed, or sewing a new patchwork quilt, you can be rest assured you will achieve a lot today. Productivity indicates growth and with your own efforts, you can see exponential growth today so long as you put the effort in.

Reverse this card and you will see a man sleeping on the job, not producing or creating anything. The frames behind him show a half finished job.

So here’s the thing – having something in place, or beginning something isn’t enough, you gotta work at it to make it succeed. What will you work on today?
