Like all Tarot cards, the Three Pentacles stakes also have meaning if it ever appears inverted. In this case he loses a lot of the positive traits he had when he was right.

For the work plane this card in the inverted position talks about the problems that the consultant will experience before a team in which he will find it difficult to fit or adapt. It also refers to the inability – out of ignorance, strength or opportunity – that the consultant will find to perform a task assigned by his bosses.
