A few words to describe the card:
hard work, appreciative, rewards from effort
7 of Pentacles
The 7 of Pentacles card typically depicts a person looking over what they’ve done. It’s a field of sorts, and the person is taking a break, looking at what they’ve done. You might be exhausted from all of the work, but it’s time to appreciate what you’ve done. the cycle is almost over, and you have the chance to reap the rewards from your hard work.
This is a fruitful card. One where the effort you’ve put in from the past comes to light. You have worked hard and this is the first time you can see what you’ve actually done. When you have this card in a reading, it’s a positive card. It may not seem like it. You may be exhausted from how much work you’ve done, but at least it’s been done. Without that hard work, you would have nothing right now. So thank yourself for the tiring tasks you were asked to do, and enjoy the fruit.
It’s time to harvest the fruits of your labor. The hard times are almost over. The work isn’t completely done yet, so don’t stop all of what you’re doing. But this can be seen as a turning point. A point where you can rest and relax a little bit. It’s the start of a new, fresh day.
Still confused about the meanings of the cards? A few tools that have been really helpful for me have been: practice, taking the time to look at each card, read books like Tarot: Learn How to Read and Interpret the Cards by Kim Arnold. Or try out tarot spreads! Try doing a simple reading every day. The Labyrinthos app is really helpful too. Or try some that I’ve created by looking here: Tarot Spreads.
