You arrive at the path of pondering your current position and making a difficult decision . . . The Tarot card sevens represent waiting to make a decision or making a difficult choice.
The Seven of Pentacles indicates making a difficult choice that will impact your current situation. Should you stay the course or change direction? Should you relax in the safety of a stable life or should you leap into the unknown, hoping for the success of increased wealth, fame or a heartfelt personal goal that is very important to you?
The Seven of Pentacles brings you to the cross-roads of how you’re going to obtain success and feel secure (compliments of the planet Venus). Since this card is related to the seventh position of the ‘Tree of Life’, you meet up with the energies of the planet Venus, relating to your wants, desires and needs to succeed. However, at the same time you risk falling ‘ass over tea kettle’ if you’re in so much of a hurry to go after what you want that you make the wrong decisions!
This is the time to take a step back, take your time and make the right decision, so you don’t shoot yourself in the foot and do something you’ll regret later.
The Seven of Pentacles also indicates that you are re-evaluating your position with your current business venture, trying to figure out what your next step will be. You’re feeling the “Sting of Success” because the load of success is really heavy on your shoulders. Now is the time to pause, to rethink your future options, and ponder new ideas that will make everything easier.
You might feel anxious about what your next step should be, but the Seven of Pentacles is suggesting that everything is going to pay off in the end as long as you have patience to realize the necessity of slow and steady growth. You probably love what you’re doing and have the tools to make your venture successful, and you’ll figure out the right steps (the risks you’ll take) because you have the determination and energy to see everything through.
On the other hand, you may overthink your current decisions and decide to change direction. This change may include taking unexpected risks and possibly betraying someone who has helped you and trusts you. Will the rewards of such a move be worth the problems it may cause?
Positive Position: The position of the number seven in the “Tree of Life” represents the connection to the planet “Venus”, the ruler of the zodiac sign of Taurus and reflects what the seeker wants, desires and needs regarding a personal heartfelt goal, material stability and security.
This position could indicate a time of increased income through the process of negotiating with others if the right decision is made. The seeker is now at the point of making an important decision, opening up communication to achieve success and taking risks!
You might feel anxious about what your next step should be. Everything should work out as long as you have patience and realize the necessity of slow and steady growth and not being in a hurry! Remember the phrase — Let things happen the way they’re supposed to happen and don’t push the envelope! You will figure out the right steps to take, or find the help you need because you have the determination and energy to see everything through.
Negative Position: You’ve made a decision, but you pushed the envelope and might be experiencing the ‘ass over tea-kettle’ situation, or you might decide to change direction because nothing is working out, or you’re experiencing difficult delays or setbacks, or you took a risk and betrayed someone to get ahead and caused a problem that came back to bite you!
Or the cost of all the changes you made is not returning the profit you need or want, so you may be considering abandoning your current path — Don’t give up because it’s too soon to see the benefits of these changes.
Timing is within 7 months, years, or during the spring season.
