Three of Coins

The Three of Coins is all about learning your skills. This is a card of work — but not in the intellectualized, information way we usually think about work. It’s not necessarily hard labor either; this is the type of work that requires some skill. The three is about learning those skills — working on building up the muscle memory and knowledge needed to complete the task.

Of course, because of this type of work, there’s an inherent reward in it; you see the progress being made as you work, the results that improve with each try. It’s the beauty of work that produces a physical object; you have much more satisfaction than work that is ephemeral.

When the Three of Coins appears, ask what skills you should be sharpening? What are you producing, what can you make? What can you work on doing?
