Three of Coins / Pentacles — Spiritual Message of the Day

April 1, 2011

Three of Coins / Pentacles -- Tarot of the MastersMy Tarot of the Masters version of this card shows three workmen carving a larger-than-life human head out of stone, which we may consider to be a suggestion of the Divine.  With this in mind, the first message that came to me when I turned over the Three of Coins today was this: “We are all working together to return to the Divine.” Indeed, in its entirety, this journey is a “group effort.”  Every individual’s path is unique, but everyone’s movement back to Spirit brings us all that much closer to the Divine since we are all One. We are all a part of something greater than our individual selves.

This card’s illustration of a larger-than-life head chiseled in stone also indicates a few pitfalls for us to beware of. There is a tendency of religions to anthropomorphize the Divine (which is a severely limiting concept), to carve in stone their specific interpretation of the Divine, and to see the Divine as something apart from us. All of these things have a tendency to inhibit rather than nurture spiritual growth, and it is important to see beyond them, to see that “God” is not a large and powerful version of a man, does not belong to one chosen sect, and is not separate from us. These concepts keep us from returning to Spirit.
