The Symbolism of the Seven of Pentacles

A farm laborer rests on his garden tool and contemplates the fruits of his work. Six pentacles adorn his crop like fruits of the harvest, and one pentacle rests on the ground at his feet.

The worker looks tired and weary, but takes satisfaction in his work.

How to Interpret the Seven of Pentacles

If there's soemthing you've been working on for a while, the Seven of Pentacles reminds us to step back from our work and take measure of it. It's easy to be so caught up in the moment, that we don't take a minute to reflect on the things we've done.

Knowing when to quit can be one of the most difficult choices we make — especially if many months or years are already invested.

It's often a sign that something we're working on may not be worth the effort we're currently investing in it.

When the inverted Seven of Pentacles comes up in a reading, it's often a sign that something we're working on may not be worth the effort we're currently investing in it. Maybe we've realized that already. Or maybe it's something we're just beginning to feel.

Likewise, Seven of Pentacles reversed may be an indication that changing circumstances are threatening a situation, and just might be making someone lose interest.

When interest wanes, there's a danger that some goals won't be attained and some projects won't be completed. But there's also a danger they'll be completed badly.

In a relationship reading, the Seven of Pentacles often indicates a relationship which got off to a great start, but may be going off-track somehow. The simple emotional sustenance and gratification that was once there, may be waning.
