Short meaning: Early signs of success relating to some venture or investment that could be making money now or in the future. This project is in its infancy. Further work and dedication will yield more significant, permanent rewards.
In-depth meaning: Things are going well for the Subject at work, or with regard to some material change. There is a sense of confidence about a new job, or business, and the current situation indicates that the right decisions have been taken until now. The Subject won’t know what the final outcome is, nor what the ultimate conclusion or achievement will be. That will only become clear with time. This card validates the initial undertaking of this opportunity and the hard work that has led to this first manifestation of success; it has proven to be good, the future looks bright and the Subject should feel content.
Because this is not the final outcome, merely a prelude to ultimate goal, the Subject needs to use this message as a motivator to keep up the momentum, rather than a sign that they can take their foot off the pedal. The positive message conveyed with this card should further enthuse and energise the Subject to continue their efforts to achieve more substantial, enduring rewards.
Notes on the image: There are now three pentacles (or coins) held securely on a healthy vine growing from rich soil (earth is the element associated with Pentacles). The added Pentacle represents a substantial move towards extra income/success in a particular venture, either now in the near future. There are now more branches budding from the vine to indicate possibility of growth in this field.
