How to Read the 3 of Diamonds:
The number 3 symbolizes growth and expansion, and when combined with the Suit of Diamonds, the 3 of Diamonds represents a small increase in money, financial growth, and taking the first steps on the ladder to success.
The 3 of Diamonds is a “small money” card. It can indicate increased income, or extra money coming in from an outside source such as a side job, moonlighting, or overtime hours.
The 3♦ can represent a small payment such as someone paying you back a small loan, or paying back a small debt. It can indicate making a small bank deposit or withdrawal. It can even indicate making a payment on a ”lay away” plan.
The 3♦ also represents building toward financial security. It can indicate expanding one’s business or clientele base, and an increase in profits.
I read the 3♦ as “a financial opportunity” which covers anything from a new job offer to a chance to get in on the ground floor of the next big “get rich quick’ pyramid scheme. It can indicate a lucrative side job, a small promotion on your current job, or even just a small raise in pay.
The 3♦ can also indicate “financial expansion.” This might include expanding a business base, or actually breaking down walls and expanding the business space.
The idea of expansion represented by the number 3, combined with the nervous energy of the Suit of Diamonds, can represent “scattered energy.” The 3♦ can denote a lack of focus, commitment, or effort. In relationship readings, this card can indicate “fickleness” or changeability in a lover who runs hot and cold.
All card multiples indicate surprises and unexpected events.
Two 3s: a church or monastery.
Three 3s: a religious or mystical experience.
Four 3s: religious fanaticism.
Suggested Card Combinations:
Face Card + 3♦ = someone with good financial sense, or a clever idea for making money.
3♦ + 7♣ = a workaholic, a work overload.
10♣ + 3♦ = expanding one’s business, or business space.
