Seven of Pentacles
A top-down view of a palm tree shows three pink pentacles hanging in the tree and four pink pentacles on the grassy ground. The background is black.
Upright: hard work, investment, sustainability, patience
Reversed: wasted effort, distraction, low return
- What long-term goals am I working toward? How have I progressed toward achieving them?
- How can I stay motivated and focused on my goals even when progress seems slow or difficult?
- What resources or support do I need in order to continue making progress toward my goals?
Seven of Pentacles Upright
You’ve worked hard, but are hesitant to reap the rewards. Perhaps you feel too exhausted to truly enjoy the fruits of your labor. Now is a good time to take a break, evaluate what you’ve done so far, and assess what remains to be done. While long-term planning is important, you might consider going after some “quick wins” to keep you motivated.
Seven of Pentacles Reversed
You may be wondering whether your hard work will pay off, or perhaps you’ve seen the fruits of your labor and are wondering if it was worth it. Avoid the sunk cost fallacy: don’t stick with something just because you’ve already put in effort. If, upon reevaluation, you decide to keep going, make time for relaxation and play to avoid burnout.
