THREE OF COINS you will die

Good news, perhaps, if you consider the wailing of dead children to be good news. The voice, we believe, may belong to Colin. If you recall, Colin is one of the ghosts that we expelled from S.A.U.C.E. headquarters before we learned that our ghosts were the tether that kept the mansion from falling into The Void.

Placement: The Minor Arcana


Pixie Colman smiths iconic* popular Rider-Waite deck depicts the interior of a cathedral. An architect and a monk discuss the blueprints for their cathedral with a carpenter, stonemason or the Masons’ archenemy, a representative from People for the Ethical Carving of Rocks (PECR).


Right side up:

Three peas in a pod. Threes being symbolically about aesthetic completion (two is a coincidence, three is a pattern… three wishes… celebrity deaths come in threes or two-thousand-sixteens…) the three of coins likewise shows us that together we are more than the sum of the individuals. The three people on the card work together to create something beautiful that will outlast them all, and perhaps abandon a baby in the woods, adopt a red-headed witch’s son played by Eddie Redmayne and thwart scheming birthmarked nobles.

Many taroists add that this card represents the unity of body, mind and spirit. If you find this card in your hand, then now is hardly the time to astral project.


Upside down:

Reversed, the Three of Coins may represent pettiness and infighting in the workplace. To uncover the traitors among your people, spy on each of them while pretending to be productive. Nothing boosts morale like suspicion.


*Given that they are pictorial representations of ideas, all tarot cards are icons. You can even create shortcuts or change their names by right-clicking upon them, provided you purchase your computer mouse from the licensed technomancers at the Forbidden Fruit Store.


Classic Three of Coins deaths:

  • The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
  • Failed locked room challenge
  • The Marble Diet
  • A sinister coverup by the People for the Ethical Carving of Rocks
