A young man clad in workman’s clothing leans on his hoe and looks wistfully upon his abundant crop resplendent with gold coins. Seven is a highly spiritual number, considered by many to be the bridge between the troubles of six and the solutions of eight. Pentacles is about as earthy and material-minded as you can get. We feel the fellow here is meditating and perhaps enjoying the results of his diligent labor. He takes a moment to appreciate his bounty. You may recall that last week’s card, the reversed Page of Pentacles, seemed to suggest a delay in new opportunities with a nod to giving attention to projects already in motion. This week we pause to assess and evaluate the accomplishments before we plot our way forward.
You’ve worked long and hard and accomplished much over time. As you take a break and look over your “crop,” you might wonder if it was all worth it? Because soon it will be time to ponder the next step and it will be up to you to decide whether to continue along the road you’ve been traveling or perhaps branch off into a different direction. Seven is the number of evaluation and although the suit is pentacles and has everything to do with earth and physical matter, the suggestion is that now is the time to connect within and listen to the messages of your inner voice. One thing is clear–you are a good planner and have a strong will and determination. You can accomplish anything you put your mind, heart and soul to. We can’t wait to see what your next hurrah will be!
