The Seven of Pentacles Tarot Card – Interpretation

This card symbolises that a relatively new path of application comes to highly successful fruition. Historically this image refers to reaping a large fortune, in fact it applies to gaining the benefit from past endeavours. When this card appears to you, you have been patient, you have persevered and tangible results of your efforts are within your reach. The Seven warns not to rest on your laurels, it is a card that after the initial rush of satisfaction tells you to focus your energies, to be conscious that every effort expended must work towards your final desire. In a free Tarot reading The Seven of Pentacles has an underlying message that when we work very hard towards our targets we often forget to enjoy the experience, we must reconnect with her initial desire in order to visualise why we set out on this path. When the questioner chooses the Seven of Pentacles I tell them to relax they have achieved what they set out for, and now it is time to look back and reflect, to learn the lessons that have been afforded them. They may be undecided as to whether to continue on the same path or whether to start an entirely new project, it is not my place to advise and they must look inside for the answer. A person that turns up this card often loves new challenges and will not be perturbed by anything that appears to be holding them back. In a phone tarot reading this card is a clear sign that you should indeed continue on your path, any frustrations should be laughed off, you should rally and re-focus your conquest. This card arrives just prior to very well laid plans coming to fruition and a celebration is indicated.

My Relationship with The Seven of Pentacles

When the seven appears I know that choices are to be made, patience will be necessary and I need to fully commit myself to the task at hand. However with application, success is almost certainly guaranteed, the flipside of this card is that often people abandon projects just before they reach fruition. I am guilty of this on several occasions and have neglected many things, including this blog, as I was distracted by other things that momentarily seemed more important. As I approached the midpoint of my revisited journey down the Royal Road of tarot, I am filled with excitement as so many more layers of this most fascinating path are revealed. As I turned the Seven to make this entry  the negative side of my subconscious badgered me into questioning whether I wanted to continue or fly off in a completely new direction. I have done this many times in my life and know that if I continue, and apply myself fully, the satisfaction that will reward me will far outweigh any new projects that pushed themselves to the front of my consciousness. I know the Seven tells me not to be complacent, to be pleased with the effort that I have applied, to make a mental note of any new directions I would like to travel in my studies, and essentially to take stock of where my efforts are leading. The Seven is interrupting practical work that I need to apply to my next really exciting online psychic reading that delves deeper into the fascinating connections of the Tree of Life. In a way I know that this card is telling me to slow down and weigh up my options, perhaps I need to consider how I want my next major project to develop. The time of deliberation and retrospection with the Seven will lead undoubtedly to an exciting new project that will benefit from more careful consideration.

The Seven of Pentacles – Don’t leave this project unrealised – success is within your reach.
