7 OF PENTACLES OVERVIEW
Inspecting the work, he wonders how fruitful these plants will be. He can’t see the magic underneath the soil. He just has a feeling that things are happening under there. And it’s a very good feeling. ‘It’s almost here right?’ His intuition answers,‘Yes.’ ‘But I can’t see anything yet?’ ‘Have faith.’ He sighs, knowing there is nothing more he can do at the moment except continue to believe and to nurture this little venture. He puts his hands over the plant, and sends it some healing love. And even though he doesn’t see the immediate effects in his little friend, he certainly feels it, right away, in his heart.
MESSAGE FROM THE 7 OF PENTACLES
If you are watching the plants closely, they never really seem to grow. But when you look away for a moment, they flourish overnight. Trust that things are happening even when you can’t see the nuanced energies that are bringing them forth! This card is a sign that you are almost there. You’ve been doing the work and your wildly successful roots are growing. While you may not see the fruits of your labour yet, know that they are on the way and that any lack that you feel is simply residual energy that you are working through. It’s time to root into faith, belief, and knowing… because you’ve come so far on this journey and it’s almost time to enjoy the rewards of your determination. Take a moment to pause, give thanks, and realize that you are the living, breathing result of all of your memories, hopes, dreams and hard work. This is your long-game. The investment. Keep going. Often, this moment will serve as a time to revisit your purpose and your direction. Your arrival is only possible after you can pinpoint the destination. Has your journey shifted so much that what you originally germinated is not the thing you desire to harvest? What needs to change so that you can satisfy your deepest intentions, and so that your creator energy finds peace and fulfilment? If you are feeling any frustration around your lack of progress, remember that giant dreams are not built in a day! Delays happen. In shadow, this card can sometimes indicate that you have been watering seeds that may never offer the type of harvest you desire. It’s time to prioritize and focus, and assess your energy input vs. rewards output. Does it feel right in your soul? Enjoy this interlude, for it is a sacred breath that will help you to direct your energy towards a reality that will make your heart sing.
