Are you excited about your growth, professional development and working together with others in order to make your vision come alive? If not, you need a dose of the good old 3 of Pentacles! The 3 of Pentacles is Mars in Capricorn energy and fiery, driven Mars is exalted in hard-working Capricorn.
The 3 of Pentacles is a card of skilful excellence, advancement, achievement, ambition and teamwork. Teamwork and ambition can sometimes be at odds with each other. There is no ‘I’ in teamwork but two in ambition. This card is asking us to look at both our ambition levels and our ability to be a team player and to find the balance between the two.
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
― Helen Keller
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
― Phil Jackson
Be a Valuable Team Member
The 3 of Pentacles acknowledges that you have much-needed and completely unique, God-given creative gifts that make you a valuable team member. You are responsible for developing and perfecting these gifts for the Highest Good.
Finding the right people to work together with is part of the journey. These are the people who will be your teammates and cheerleaders but will also hold you accountable. In turn, you do the same for them. This is how the work progresses to much higher heights than if each of you tried to achieve the same outcomes on your own.
A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.
― Larry Bird
Affirmation: “A spirit of teamwork guides me in all I do and supports me in doing my best.”
3 of Pentacles Prayer
Dear Mother-Father God, thank you for my calling and the gifts that come with it. Help me develop these gifts in a spirit of teamwork and to rejoice in the knowledge that my unique skills are useful for the Highest Good. Amen and so it is!

The 3 of Pentacles in Love and Relationships
Too much work and maybe not enough play is definitely something the 3 of Pentacles can represent in a reading. As a couple, you project a picture of success (and you probably look attractive too!). Stuff like that is important to both of you. But how much fun are you having?
All relationships go through phases. This is a phase when one or both of you is likely to focus more on your career. You could be involved in a taxing project. Or you could be feeling as if your spouse is married to their job/career rather than to you.
To someone single and looking, this card combined with the 2 of Cups or the Knight of Cups could indicate that you’ll meet someone through work.
Reversed or ill-dignified, the 3 of Pentacles can signify that someone is trying to take advantage of you sexually and/or financially.
Ahhhh. With the north/south nodes changing in July, it’s time for a focus on teamwork for sure.
Once again, God is nudging me towards coming out of my shell.
Oh, Uriel really? lol
Good point about the nodes changing. Yes, Uriel is the ruler of Uranus but also of the Cardinal direction of North as well as the Element of Earth. Or he is in the Golden Dawn tradition. Is Uriel significant to you somehow?
