Since the Thoth Deck Tarot of the Hermetic Qabalah is inseparable from the Tree of Life, and the minor arcana (small cards) are numbered according to the Serphiroth that rules their action.The threes are all associated with Binah, Understanding. Thus, in each of the threes the idea has become fertilized, i.e. Understood and because of this fertilization, the triangle has become formulated. In Qabalah we know that the triangle is the strongest structure (Trinity), an empirically stable plane and therefore, the idea of the card is now a strong union that is able to give birth to offspring.
The Thoth 3 of Disks, is also called the Three of Pentacles in the Golden Dawn, Connolly and Ryder -Waite Tarot decks.

that Qabalists call Assiah. In Qabalah the The Great Work is known as "As above, so Below", and this card depicts the Supernal Triangle floating on the rippling Great Sea of Binah.;The Universal Imagination beginning to manifest Self-Awareness.
Capricorn is an Earth sign and the effect of Mars on Capricorn is to bring great discipline and control in material things, such as, employment, business, and building construction.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
This article is about the Indian philosophical concept "Guna". For other uses, see Guna (disambiguation). Guṇa (Sanskrit: गुण) depending on the context means 'string, thread or strand', or 'virtue, merit, excellence', or 'quality, peculiarity, attribute, property'. The concept originated in Samkhya philosophy, but now a key concept in various schools of Hindu philosophy.
There are three guṇas, according to this worldview, that have always been and continue to be present in all things and beings in the world. These three gunas are called: sattva (goodness, constructive, harmonious), rajas (passion, active, confused), and tamas (darkness, destructive, chaotic). All of these three gunas are present in everyone and everything, it is the proportion that is different, according to Hindu worldview. The interplay of these gunas defines the character of someone or something, of nature and determines the progress of life. In some contexts, it may mean 'a subdivision, species, kind, quality', or an operational principle or tendency of something or someone. In human behavior studies, Guna means personality, innate nature and psychological attributes of an individual.There is no single word English language translation for the concept guna. The usual, but approximate translation is "quality".
The three card also represents the Material establishment of the Universe as determined by its basic form of 3. The influence of Mars is in the Red-tint that is somewhat faded on the Thoth Card.

Here a talented, skilled worker is shown in a medieval cathedral with contract in hand, implying he is informed of future work.
The divine feminine and the divine masculine, are the foundation all successful manifestation, depicted as a nun and monk.
Therefore, this is a mundane card, with some suggestion of subtlety.
