What does the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card mean?

Learn the meaning of the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card in under a minute!

Seven of Pentacles Upright Meaning

The Seven of this suit is typically a paean to the humble laborer who is willing to show up every day and sweat in the sun for next season's bounty. The traditional concept is cultivation, with an attitude that slow and steady wins the race, with faith in nature's assistance. The protagonist of this card doesn't make excuses, isn't whimsical or moody, but is dedicated and sees the job through. Of course, it's no good to count your chickens before they hatch, but there's no question that the person who is vigilant over a project is more likely to get the desired result.

Someone who works with nature, cooperating with her ways, will waste less energy and time than the person who works against her. As a side meaning, we sometimes see this normally humble farmer in a moment of frenzy, betting the crop on a roll of the dice. This represents a moment of dementia, addiction or desperation which hopefully will not last long enough for the farmer to lose everything!

Seven of Pentacles Reversed Meaning

The Seven of Coins reversed suggests that you may need a warning against doing something rash or taking a gamble. This card is traditionally associated with the idea of someone who is a gambler.

This is usually a person who has lost track of the rewards of productivity and self-discipline. Such a person may be willing to bet the farm on the roll of the dice, gambling not only his or her well being but also that of loved ones or others. This card is a warning against doing something rash. It's not too late to reconsider your options.

Seven of Pentacles Advice Position

The Seven of Coins in this position advises you to focus on the long run. Look beyond this week or this month. This card exemplifies the magic of compound interest. You'll have much better results with a slow and steady investment of time, energy and labor than you would generate by trying to win the lottery.

The path to success is paved by perseverance. Glamorous or flashy moves cannot take the place of consistent steps in the right direction. If you do not understand this, perhaps you are moving in the wrong direction or are not motivated strongly enough.

Seven of Pentacles Love Position

The Seven of Coins in this position indicates your efforts toward being a self-made person are finally being realized and recognized by a possible romantic interest. This card represents the slow and steady application of energy, season after season. You have kept at it, and your dedication and focus are bearing fruit.

You can understand the magic of compound interest. Thinking like a farmer, you are willing to patiently tend your crop, trusting time and letting natural law multiply your harvest. The results are no surprise to you, but other people are beginning to notice. Keep at it and you will be known as a gifted person who produces value rather than just another consumer.

Seven of Pentacles Career Position

When the Seven of Coins is in this position, its time to throw yourself into the collective effort and be seen among the high producers. This is the moment to show what you are made of. Everyone has his or her shoulder to the plow, but only the strong are left standing at the end of the day. Knowing that you are not alone with your challenges can provide extra energy when you feel exhausted. It also helps you stay focused on your goal through the inevitable distractions. The bond becomes very sweet once your fruits are ripening on the vine.

Do not prematurely count on your harvest while it is still green. However, barring catastrophe, you have the potential for a nice return on everyone's investment of time and energy. When harvest time comes, you will be thanking each other with tears in your eyes, reminiscing about the good old days, and talking about next year's crop with anticipation.
