The Seven of Pentacles is all about planning, working hard and being patient, thinking of long term goals instead of quick fixes to problems.
If this card appears in a reading, it indicates that you are planning for the future and working hard towards a long term goal. It may take a long time, and you may have been working hard for a while without feeling as though you’re reaping the benefits, but your efforts will pay off eventually and you will be rewarded for your work.
Perhaps you have been working on a project at work that has taken longer than you thought it would, and you feel as though your efforts have not been recognised or appreciated by your peers or your superiors? It can be frustrating to think that you are doing something for nothing, but in this case, all of your hard work will pay off, and you will get the recognition you deserve. So keep going, even if it feels as though you’re getting nowhere fast; progress is progress, and focusing all your energy on a big, long term goal instead of half your energy on quick, easy jobs, is so much more rewarding.
If you draw the Seven of Pentacles in a relationship reading, it suggests that you are fighting hard to make a relationship work. Perhaps things are rocky at the minute, maybe due to long distance, or possibly because you’re both working so hard that you hardly get the chance to spend quality time together. You’re in it for the long haul though, and you’re determined to go through the bad times to get to the good. Keep at it, and you will be happy together in the end.
If you get the Seven of Pentacles in reverse, it suggests that you are failing to prioritise, and are wasting your efforts on the wrong things. You are spending far too long focusing on activities that are not going to benefit you in the long run.
If you draw this card in reverse, you need to stop and think about what it is you really want, and what is the best way to achieve this. Figure out what you can spend less time on or even give up completely so that you can give yourself more time to focus on what is really important.
