The Seven of Pentacles shows a man pensively resting his hands on a hoe, after a long day of labor. This is a time of reassessment and of looking at what must be done.
The Seven of Pentacles shows up when you have done, all you can and there is nothing more that is in your hands. Hence, now, you need to let the project or the task you have been working on, out of your hands since it is dependent on fate or someone else.
The call of the hour is your patience and optimism. Since the outcome of the work that has been done is not up to you and will take the time it needs, the best you can do is show up daily and put in your best and leave out any expectations of the outcome. There are things in life whose value far outweighs the material gain.
The man in the Seven of Pentacles is resting on a hoe. A hoe is the slowest piece of gardening tool and would de-weed the garden tendril by tendrils making it a very slow and tedious process. Therein lies the meaning of the card. You need to continuously put in the hard work on a project that you cannot abandon, and de-weed negative thoughts and expectations of quick results from your mind.
For projects or business ventures, this card could be an indication that you take a step back and see if you want to carry on and invest in the project or venture. The Seven of Pentacles usually talk about a long-term project where the first reward has just come in but is very meager compared to the effort that has been put in.
For now, think of the journey as a privilege to be a part of the process to see the growth of this venture and know that there will be a break, just around the corner. it may take its time but it will come. Sometimes we are so close to things on a day-to-day basis that we don’t notice the progress. Just because we have not noticed it doesn’t mean that growth is not occurring.
Think of all that you have achieved and remember the journey to the point of achievement. Honor yourself, since your time will come, and your hard work will pay off. For now, enjoy the journey !!
