General overview

On the internet it's not always easy to find reliable information about the world of the divination tarot. So you can get a better understanding of the world of cartomancy, I'm happy to provide you with all the information you've been looking for for so long. Today we are going to take a closer look at the Seven of Pentacles.

Like all the cards belonging to this suit, the Seven is, above all, related to the material world, social success and money. From a visual point of view, it features seven golden Pentacles arranged in a specific way to help you understand the symbolism of the card. So, each corner of the card is occupied by a coin, this rectangular shape obviously meant to represent the material world. In the center of the card, three other Pentacles form a triangle, a universal symbol of the spirit. In the midst of a period of change, what the triangle asks is to spread itself within the boundaries of the material world defined by the rectangle.

This principle of action results largely from the extraordinary energy associated with the figure 7, last prime number in the suit of ten cards. Setting the spirit in motion in the material world is also highly beneficial, as is shown by the luxuriant vegetal motifs on the card.

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.


  • from an emotional viewpoint

    The sign of Pentacles rarely exerts a strong influence on the seeker's romantic life. And the Seven of Pentacles is no exception to this rule. To analyze its message more precisely it will be necessary to pay attention to other arcana present in the draw, whose lessons this card can sometimes make clearer.

  • from a career viewpoint

    The qualities of the Seven of Pentacles unfold most naturally in the professional sphere. It expresses the seeker's strong desire to make their efforts fruitful in the long-term, their ability to recognize the importance of hard work and their ability to stay on course even when it's stormy. With this card, patience reigns supreme. The seeker is not interested in immediate rewards. What counts most for them is long-term success, the only possible solution for anyone who wishes to build a sustainable future.

  • from a life path viewpoint

    Although the Seven of Pentacles is most immediately associated with the material universe and the idea of financial success, the role played by the mind in the quest for fulfillment is too often forgotten The success of a seeker placed under the suit of Pentacles is not the result of luck but rather the direct consequence of their ability to plan and visualize themselves in their future. Learning to set priorities and stay on course is essential for anyone who wants to climb the social ladder. So let's recognize these merits.

    Full interpretation

    Interpretation of The Seven of Pentacles upright

    While some people prefer to enjoy life's small daily pleasures, others are determined to think about themselves in their future. In a world governed by money, social success is often an essential foundation for personal fulfillment. In order to achieve your goals, it's not enough just to define them in the safety of your mind, it's also about putting in place an adequate strategy to achieve them, and then sticking to it.

    Placed under the influence of the Seven of Pentacles, the seeker will show an unusually strong desire to see their efforts bear fruit, with an extraordinary capacity for action and work. There is no point in being content with ephemeral pleasures when life has so much to offer! Conscious that the time allotted to humans is limited, the seeker prefers to use their energy in the fields most likely to provide them with gratification. With the Seven of Pentacles it is the long-term vision that is privileged.

    This arcana's teaching could not be clearer. Success is never due chance. The efforts you make, hard as they may seem at times, will one day result in immense profits. So, don't waste your energy on lost causes and always focus on the most profitable areas.

    Interpretation of The Seven of Pentacles reversed

    When it appears upside down in a divinatory tarot draw, the Seven of Pentacles traditionally doesn't get a good press. It testifies to the difficulty the seeker has in seeing themselves in the future. Stuck in a daily life that isn't really satisfying, they turn to look at the horizon only to see a sky full of clouds. This situation, however unpleasant, won't last forever.

    Perhaps it is time for them to define the objectives they want to achieve more precisely and think about the means they need to implement in order to achieve them. The limitations of everyday life sometimes cause you to trudge through your days with your head down, forgetting that the foundations of your future are even now being laid. This is why it is vitally important to break your paralyzing habits and avoid as much as possible things that cause you to spread yourself too thin. Instead, spend your energy on the things that are really important to you. Don't be tempted by those little satisfactions that vanish too quickly and set your course straight ahead. The horizon is waiting for you!
