The traditional Three of Pentacles shows three people in a church or monastery. They are described as a sculptor, monk and an architect. The clothes they are wearing and what each one is doing contributes to the meaning of the card as well as the position of the three pentacles above them. It is not easily apparent what this card means. It is usually associated with mastery of skill or artistic ability – the producing of quality work and the recognition that deserves. Expanding Dimensions, the creators of Today’s Journey Tarot chose to feature the deck’s illustrator, Christopher Wilkey in the updated version of this card, the Three of Earth. His dedication, talent, and hard work were exemplary during the process of creating Today’s Journey Tarot. The card shows him at a gallery exposition of his work, where he is receiving recognition for his incredible art.
