Seven of Pentacles Reversed Tarot Card


The Seven of Pentacles reversed represents putting all of your energy and resources into something without reaping the benefits. In order to overcome these frustrations and setbacks, something will have to change. Or it may be time for you to move on to other things. Here is a more detailed look into some of the interpretations that may apply when the Seven of Pentacles shows up reversed in an online tarot card reading.

Finding Your Priorities

At the present, you are feeling a bit scattered with your efforts. According to the Seven of Pentacles reversed, you are uncertain about how you are investing your time and resources. What once seemed like a good idea does not seem to be working out how you intended. Maybe you’re not seeing the returns on your investment that you expected. Or maybe the whole situation is creating more stress for you than it is worth. Look at everything that you are investing your time, money, and resources into. Prioritize what matters the most to you and let go of things that aren’t delivering results.

Failure to Work Hard

On the other hand, maybe the reversed Seven of Pentacles is pointing out that you aren’t putting in the necessary work in order to succeed. You could be procrastinating or feeling lazy. Or maybe you aren’t doing the planning required to reach your goals. If you want good things to come for you, then you need to buckle down and be willing to put in the necessary elbow grease. That is the only way that your goals can become reality.

Knowing When to Move On

The Seven of Pentacles reversed may be a sign that it is time to move on. You’ve put a lot into making something work, but you simply aren’t getting the results you’re after. But you’re hesitant to give it up after all of the time, money, or work you have invested into this. It may seem terrible to let all of that go to “waste.” But consider it from a different perspective – what’s done is done. Whether you let it go or continue forward, what you have already invested is in the past. By stubbornly pushing forward when something is just not working, you only put yourself at risk of losing more time and resources. If you’re not getting anything out of it, know when it’s time to cut your losses and move on to better things.

Enjoy Where You Are

It is easy to get consumed by trying to achieve your next life goal. While having goals and aspirations for the future are undoubtedly important, don’t forget to take the time to enjoy where you are in the present as well. Remember the things you have already achieved and celebrate those successes.

A Stagnant Relationship

You have put a lot into trying to make your current relationship work. You realize that relationships take effort and have done everything you can to ensure this one goes right. Yet despite your best efforts, you’re finding that things just aren’t progressing as smoothly or as quickly as you anticipated. Sadly, there are times when giving it your all just isn’t enough. The Seven of Pentacles reversed shows that no matter how hard you try, this relationship will continue to struggle and face problems.

Time for a Break

The reversed Seven of Pentacles can also represent a rough patch in your relationship. One or even both of you are not putting in the work that is needed to keep the relationship afloat. It is likely that you are giving your focus to work or other projects you have going on. But not giving a relationship the attention it needs can lead to a lack of growth and other problems. You both need to reevaluate where your priorities lie right now. The relationship may benefit from taking a break. This will allow you both time to breathe while you handle other priorities. Then you can later decide with a clear mind whether or not you want to rekindle the romance.

Looking for Love

If you are single, don’t expect romance to happen like it does in fairy tales. If you are not putting effort into meeting people, then love is not likely to find you right now. You have to make time for love, along with your other priorities and responsibilities. But be careful not to take this too far in the other direction. If you’re working too hard to find love, it can seem desperate and needy – ending up with the opposite effect than you intended.

Realistic Expectations

Love is all too often over glamorized. According to the Seven of Pentacles reversed, you may have unrealistic expectations about love. This could apply to your desire to have a relationship or your connection with your current partner. No one could ever live up to unrealistic ideals. Keep your expectations realistic and you’ll discover that love can still be a wonderful thing, even if things aren’t always how you dreamed.

Working for Your Career

If your career isn’t progressing in the way you hoped, the Seven of Pentacles reversed suggests that you should reevaluate the amount of effort you are putting into it. Failing to put in the required work will never get you where you want to be. Or you could be a workaholic, which can easily become counterproductive and impact other areas of your life as well. Decide where you want to see your career go and determine what exactly you need to do to get there.

Unsatisfying Job

The Seven of Pentacles reversed may also reference a dissatisfaction you feel in your current job. If you are feeling unhappy with your job, think about what specifically is the problem. Once you’ve identified the root of the problem, take steps to change it. While this may involve changing jobs, it could also lead to you taking on different tasks or projects at your current employment. The changes you make can help you find your career rewarding once again.

Time to Shape Up

Poor health habits have now started to negatively impact your current health. If you do not change your behaviors, these bad habits may impact you long-term. Make the lifestyle changes necessary to improve your present and future health.
