Professional development is important and a wonderful thing. but it is necessary to be put into a balanced perspective regarding personal boundaries, taking care of relationships and personal well being, mind, body and spirit.
This preoccupation ruined Daedalus, as was indicated in yesterday's, Five of Pentacles. Here, in the Three of Pentacles we see him at the beginnings of his career. Unfortunately he eventually lost sight of his own limitations and capacities, because he took on more than he could handle, and lost everything, including his self-value and faith in himself.
Daedalus is seen here in the Three of Pentacles, reaping the rewards for the completion of the first stages of his initial work efforts. This project is not finished, and there will be further hard work ahead, difficulty and risk, which will hopefully lead to a permanent reward. This card indicates celebration for a job well done, although it is essential to have full awareness of the work ahead, both professionally and personally.
I see this card as a simple and straight forward message. For me it is the confirmation to have a mindfulness, to make a conscious effort, in order to apply some necessary changes that are needed to actualize and bring to completion, future goals and projects.
