Seven of Pentacles Tarot Card Description
In the Rider Waite deck, the card shows a man standing patiently with his head resting on staff, taking a break from his work, to watch a plant bearing money, grow slowly. He is assessing the situation and bidding his time to gather the harvest of the crop. He is investing for the future and wants to use only one of the pentacles now. Meanwhile, he is contemplating if the amount of effort he put in is going to give him the desired result. The grey sky symbolises that he does not feel the need to change the way he has been handling things. The staff(shovel) symbolises the fact that hard work pays off in the end as although exhausted, he has made the barren land bear fruit. The desolate mountains behind him are witness to the fact that he has done better now than in the past.
When the Seven of Pentacles appears in a reading, it gives hope to the querent that he will soon be rewarded for the effort he has put in so far. Just like the seeds planted in a garden will bear fruit only when the time is right, so will his hard work. He needs to patiently wait to get his returns. Meanwhile, acknowledge the progress that has been made so far and check to see if one is headed in the right direction of one’s dreams.
