Seven of Pentacles

Seven of Pentacles

Pentacles: manifestation, money, proof, prosperity

Interpretation

  • cultivation 
  • slow growth 
  • humble laborer 
  • pause 

The fruits of labor are almost at hand. They will require diligence and perseverance to bring to market. As you pause during this phase of the enterprise don't allow negative thoughts such as the loss of fortune or speculations to sway your convictions. If you falter now you could lose the crop altogether, so stand strong. This is a testament to the humble laborer who is willing to show up day after day and sweat in the hot sun for the next season's crop, bounty or reward. Slow and steady wins the race. You are wise to cultivate that which you have sewn. 

Reversed

  • strife 
  • impatience 
  • delays in money matters 
  • depression 

There is cause for concern here in matters of finance. Impatience could cost you the position your seeking, the crop your harvesting, or coin you need to sustain your family. Vigilance over all you have sewn is required at this time. Someone who works with nature, cooperating with her ways will waste far less energy than one who works against nature.
