The Three of Pentacles, Minor Arcana, refers to success and hard work. You will be rewarded, respected and recognized in your profession. Perhaps a promotion is in the works. Follow through on all of your goals. This is a time when your future looks bright and your hard work is paying off. If you are starting a new project, lay a good foundation and you will reap the benefits. Your skills are needed and appreciated, which brings about personal satisfaction. Spiritually, you will find this fulfilling.
A fear of failure or a refusal to commit to a particular path will definitely hinder your success. You are frustrated in your career, as you feel that you are overqualified. You have become complacent and full of yourself. There also may be a lack of ambition. You reap what you sow. Be careful. You may be pushing the envelope — accept delays. This is not a time to rush results or change. This is a card that speaks to pacing yourself. It is what you learn after you think you know everything that matters. Criticism and an undermining of your personal abilities is holding you back. Accept that hard work is a necessary element for success. Right now you are your own worst enemy. Build your self-confidence.
