Seven of Pentacles

"The price of victory is high but so are the rewards." - Bear Bryant.

Element of earth power: The Seven of Pentacles teaches you to focus on your long-term goals. Though your immediate rewards have been duly earned, you still have goals ahead of you. If you have been putting time and effort in your work, it signifies that your efforts are paying off and they are going to pay off in the future as well. Patience!

The Seven of Pentacles reaffirms your long-term vision and helps to show that you are not confined to seeing immediate results in the short-term only. It shows how much you value the investment because of the effort that you are willing to put in. These efforts are based on what you have already accomplished within your mind, body, and soul.

Concerning relationships, the Seven of Pentacles assures that with patience all may end well. If you’re currently in a relationship, life together now may seem tedious or grueling. Perhaps in order to be together, your partnership may require working out long-term plans or creating compromises in your routine or finances. But this card is also a reminder that love isn’t always passionate romances and outbursts of emotions; it is also partners putting in the work every day to remain together within an ever-changing world.

Over time, all the tedious moments, all the hard work, will be something to be looked back at fondly. After all, these were the things that let your love grow to something as beautiful as you have now.

The Seven of Pentacles appearing regarding career may indicate that certain ventures or ideals may be slow to happen, or much work has gone into a project with little to show for it. This may be the opportunity to acknowledge that you can utilize the current time to evaluate your work; it will be helpful and can create a firm foundation for future growth.

At times of imbalance: The rewards of your labor may not be as significant as you thought. The advantage of discovering this is that it shows that you know when to stop investing your time, money or energy in a particular project. You, therefore, need to reevaluate your choices, and figure out where you should put your resources.

Medicine: The Seven of Pentacles could also be applied where you have taken note of the time that you have invested and that you are able to creatively step into another venture or redirect all that focus where it may be well received going forward.

Mantra: I am aware of my energy.
