In this kind of drawing, the Three of Pentacles may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers do like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic readers conduct their readings because a Tarot Card deck connects to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.

It would also be counted in months, or around the 3rd, 21st, 30th, of a month.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming slowly, but surely, from there, you would figure out the time.

Either way is coming, but it needs time to grow into what you desire.
