Seven of Pentacles


Seven of PentaclesThis card depends greatly on the cards around it. It generally means a pause in activity for assessment. The conclusions you draw from this pause depend on the rest of the spread.

Sevens are well on their way to completing a cycle. This is a natural time to evaluate what has been done, and what is left to do. Depending on prior work, this could be a time to adjust your strategy, discard the unnecessary, or panic. Patterns are forming in this stage. What might have been a vague idea, now has details to work out.

Are you going to move forward or retreat? You’ve come a long way to turn back now, and what you go back to won’t be the same as you remember. It’s best for you to use this time wisely. Keep what’s working and scrap the rest. Make your lists, order your materials, and ask the experts for advice. You can do this. You’re already more than halfway there…


The Seven of Pentacles only interacts with the Emperor.

Major Arcana

Emperor: Any cards from the suit of Pentacles can indicate an offer of a position of authority. This position is likely to involve finance and carry heavy responsibilities.

The Suit — Pentacles, Coins, or Diamonds

The pentacle is a symbol of earth magic. The coin is wealth and wages. The diamond is a symbol of wealth, pulled from the ground and refined by human hands into something enduring and elegant. This suit represents all things related to the earth. It represents the work of our hands. It represents those conspicuous signs of wealth that show us and our neighbors how successful we are, but this is merely material wealth. We can pass this on to the next generation, but it is worthless if we choose to bury it with ourselves.

Number — 7

Seven is a number of mastery, reflection, and assessment.
