The Symbolism in the "Seven of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

A farm laborer rests on his garden tool and contemplates the fruits of his work - seven pentacles on a bush. He looks tired and weary, but takes satisfaction in his work. The look on his face may be interpreted to a range of emotions, depending on the situation.

The Meaning of the "Seven of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

Precisely because of the enigmatic look on the young man's face, this card could have many different meanings depending on the spread. It may represent the need for repose after a long period of very hard work. It may also represent a connection to one's work that is too intense - work for the sake of work rather than for the fulfillment of other goals. The individual needs to be careful that another isn't just using his gifts for their own material gain, and leaving the individual only promises in return. Rest after labor, the need to reflect on one's work, naïveté about the way things really work. Also could be an inattentive attitude to work, daydreaming rather than working too much.
