Three of Pentacles
It’s time to take your own power back and use it in a way that best suits you!
Today is about energy… specifically your own energy and what you do with it.
Are you letting it leach out and having it taken by others who you are doing everything for whilst at the same time getting nothing in return?
Or are you using that energy to turn your dreams into reality and shower yourself with the many benefits this can in turn give you?
These are the questions you need to be asking yourself today.
By asking yourself these questions and taking your own thoughts, needs and wants into the equation of your answer you can harness your own energy and have it working for you rather than against you.
What is your dream? How far along have you traveled in accomplishing it?
The many facets of the peacocks feathers in this image suggest that there are multi layers to what you are wishing to accomplish and the yellows suggest mental agility in realizing what you need to do next.
All eyes are on you… or are they? Notice that you are only see one half of the picture in this image. What are the peacock’s feet doing, where are they placed and for that matter what is the other half of the body of the man doing?

Three of Pentacles
Today is a good day to join heads with like-minded people in the spirit of community and cooperation.
The Three of Pentacles is all about team-work, group efforts and collaboration. It’s a reminder that two (three, or four, etc.) heads are better than one and that none of us can achieve alone what we can achieve with others. Although many aspects of this card emphasize friendship and celebration, this one focuses more on integrating the disparate parts of self. Body, Mind and Spirit come to mind.
In this rendition the pentacles are made up of three disks. They contain a Sun Face, an Eye and a panoramic scene with yogi and horse figures. The disks are all interconnected with the Sun disk shining a little brighter over the other two. A crescent moon with another eye rests below the three disks.
In addition to teamwork and collaboration, the Three of Pentacles also speaks of hitting your stride and seeing the initial results of something you’ve been working hard on. It speaks of breathing new life into a project or finding the “key” to something that has been puzzling you and holding you back.

Three of Pentacles
Today is a good day to put your head together with others and work on bringing a project to fruition. The Three of Pentacles is a “teamwork” card, among other things.
It’s about hitting your stride and seeing initial results of something you’ve been working hard on. Sometimes you need help to take it to the next level, even if that comes in the form of a critical eye.
The Three of Pentacles — like all threes — refers to the initial stages of progress where you’ve taken an idea (the Ace) put it into production (the Two) and are making progress now toward creating something real (the Three).
The imagery in this card describes this process beautifully. We see three half-formed figures all actively creating one another and all benefiting from the help they receive from their peers.
Notice though how each of these figures is different. The first one — a human — is working on the second figure (an angel) in pencil; the angel is chiseling away at the third figure, who appears to be a robot; the robot is actively working on the human’s face with bright red paint.
There’s an interdependence depicted here and a camaraderie. Each of these figures needs the others and all of them are contributing equally.

ARIES: Five of Pentacles
You may start the month going through a bit of a rough patch. The Five of Pentacles is all about questioning your own values — whether that means mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially.
As Pentacles relate to physical, material and tangible concerns, you may be struggling with money and material possessions. But this is also ties into your own sense of self-worth.
You may be asking yourself “What do I have to offer and what is it worth to others?” There’s a sense of loneliness and feelings of inadequacy associated with this card.
But if you look at the images in this version, you see not one person but two. And they seem to be holding each other up — supporting one another.
This is the message behind the Five of Pentacles: it may be cold outside and you may have suffered a recent set-back or a blow to your self-esteem. But all you have to do is look around you — and be willing to reach out for help.
We can’t any of us make it through this world alone. This card is all about reminding ourselves that there is help if we are willing to ask for it, and in doing so will usually come out stronger in the end.

You’ll have the opportunity to re-invent yourself this month and to achieve equilibrium in your relationships.
You can turn something negative into something positive by striving for balance, harmony and composure.
This is a powerful card. It relates to the alchemical process of turning lead into gold. You can activate this concept personally by embracing that which has been resisted or denied and working to transform it.
This card is called “Art” (Temperance, in some decks). It speaks of seeking out symmetry.
It speaks of finding a middle-ground. In what areas of your life are you too inflexible, too rigid and too unwilling to hear another’s point of view?
Your challenge will be to overcome those impediments and to integrate the opposing forces in your life.
