Three of Coins

On the face of the cube is the symbol of Saturn, for among the Divine Numbers, 3 is called the Sphere of Saturn. Note that here, as in the succeeding numbers, up to and including 9, we are dealing with the spheres of planetary action, not with the planets themselves. The sphere of a person’s activity is in the field in which he works. Similarly, the sphere of a planet’s activity is the field of that planet’s operation. Numerologists, and others accustomed to using other numbers for the planets, should remember that we have very ancient authority for these attributions. See Eliphas Levi’s Dogma and Ritual of Transcendental Magic, Henry Cornelius Agrippa’s Natural Magic, Knorr von Rosenroth’s Kabbala Denudata, and other standard works on occultism. In the Knapp Tarot the evil hexagram, with the black triangle upward, is part of the symbolism, but it does not agree with the meanings of the card.

Time period

The second decanate of Capricorn, under the rulership of Venus, from January 1st to 10th.

Well-dignified

Construction; increase, growth; financial gain; the building up of favorable conditions; gain in commercial transactions; rank or prestige in vocation or business; beginning of matters to be perfected later.

Ill-dignified

Selfishness; cleverness in business, but lack of scruples; narrow and prejudiced; too much ambition.

Keyword

Constructiveness.

3 of Pentacles

TRADITION

Nobility, noblesse, good and generous action, aristocracy, fame, glory, splendour, etc. Consideration, generous action. The reversed meanings do not appear at all to respond to a card of pentacle-nature and, as in many other cases, simply seem to imply the absence of the better qualities: weakness, humility, vile and abject action, etc. Another version gives: “Metier, trade, skilled labour.” (W.)

THEORY

The Fire on the Seventh house, which rules the contact of the Self and the Not-self, the relations between both, the executive ability in man. So this must lead to the idea of well-doing and noble demeanour, owing to the Sun and Venus again. Compare horoscopes with the Sun and Venus in VII. Well-conducted relations denote civilisation, aristocracy, and the proper expression of one’s relation to the world in his occupation, his m?tier, as W. has it; profession, marriage and employment. So this card has to do with ‘workmanship,’ which is well expressed by the drawing of the card in the set of W.

CONCLUSION

Civilisation, aristocracy, good workmanship, skill, civil treatment and noblesse, agreeable relation, m?tier, employment, profession, marriage; good done to other people, bounty, profitable relations in business; restoration, reparation, beneficial arrangement. A marriage will do much good.
