Do you know what else this card means? Well, it’s your lucky day because I am going to share with you all my knowledge about this card. Whether you’re a beginner or trying to expand on what you understand, I’m here!
Stay tuned and check out all there is to know about the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card meaning!
The Brief History Of The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card
To really understand the Seven of Pentacles, you need a little history of the Tarot cards.
Back in the 14th century, Italy got bored with plain old playing cards and decided it would be more fun creating a new game with a spinoff of the original deck. They would use the artwork on the cards as well.
They created what is now known as the “Major Arcana” which are the Trump cards in the deck for the game. The suits are roughly the same with a little bit of a twist.
The Hearts became Cups, Diamonds became Pentacles, Clubs became Wands, and naturally, the Spades became Swords. Pretty neat, isn’t it?
This was a great idea and a hit! People loved playing the “Tarot Game.” In fact, this game is still played in modern times. You can order it to see what the buzz is all about.
In the 1800s, the spiritualism movement was becoming a big wave for the future. You had the palm readers, mediums, and people seeking answers from the “other side.”
They were doing séances, scrying, automatic writing, and table tipping, among other things. So, it was a big deal to find ways you could talk to people who have passed away as well as read the future.
The next thing you know someone decided that Tarot cards could not only be a game but also be used very seriously to see people’s future, give them advice, and also reach the dead.
This became one of the most popular tools of the trade to do readings for oneself or for others.
Now, the most popular deck used was the Rider Waite deck. It’s really easy to see what the pictures are and easy definitions in its enclosed booklet. It was created in 1909 and then revised in 1910.
This particular deck is still one of the easiest Tarot decks to learn how to do readings with. In fact, if you’re starting out you may want to give it a try. You’ll be a pro in no time!
Now that you’ve got the lowdown of the Seven of Pentacles (Seven of Diamonds), let me share with you the definition. Are you still with me? Excellent!
1. The Basic Definition Of The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card
Pulling the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card means that you’ve planted the seeds of your future success. You may have put something into motion that will bring you greatness a little later.
It’s a card of letting you know that you need to be patient once you’ve activated a goal or plan. There are details to be sorted out and it will go really well for you if you watch it grow with time.
It can literally mean planting seeds that you can harvest later in your garden, of course. However, in the Tarot, it’s probably more likely to mean that you created a goal that will grow you much but will take nurturing and care.
You cannot just invest in something without taking care of it. Also, it may mean a literal investment in stocks. You put down a small amount and watch it grow over time.
When you have patience your good will grow in amazing numbers. Don’t try to rush or hurry the process. Make it smooth and abundant by allowing it to blossom.
2. The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card Definition (Reversed)
The reversed Seven of Pentacles Tarot card meaning is a bit different. You may have left some things unfinished which means your success won’t be as great as it could have been.
Perhaps there were problems or setbacks which caused delays in your path. It can also indicate procrastination, putting in little effort, or being impatient with the process.
You won’t get as much out of your seeds planted if you didn’t nurture as you should have. You have no one to blame but yourself on this one. You can change this by motivating yourself more.
I guess what I’m saying is that you have to want it badly enough. If you get bored or tired of doing it, you will definitely see that your rewards are very small if there are any at all.
Decide what you want now and stick to it. Once you plant those seeds, water them, keep pests off of them and make sure they thrive so that when it’s harvest time, you will be prosperous.
Of course, that’s an analogy but you get the idea. You can’t just put an idea in motion and then sit back to see where it goes. You have to actually work at it and do what is necessary for it to thrive.
3. Love And The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card (Upright)
When it comes to love, the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card means that you’re at the beginning of a new relationship. You will have to tend to it and make sure your connection grows and becomes more.
It also reminds you that you will need to be patient. If you rush into a relationship, it’s not going to be as wonderful as it could have been or it could fail.
If you’re already in a relationship, then this may mean you are already working on it to make it blossom. You may be planning a wedding or planning an engagement.
It may be telling you that if you plan it all out properly, then you will have the most amazing love life going forward. Who doesn’t want that?
Use your brain power, nurture your lover, and pay a lot of attention to the work that a relationship requires. Be committed to it and wait for it to become the great love it’s destined to be! Be all in!
Naturally, if you have just started to date someone, then take your time, get to know each other well, and fall in love the old-fashioned way.
If you’re single and looking, then the Seven of Pentacles is telling you that you should begin manifesting the relationship you’re looking for by putting out into the Universe what you need in a partner.
4. Love And The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card (Reversed)
Alright, so you’ve gotten the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card in reverse. Now, what do you do? This reversed card is telling you that you’ve tried to rush a relationship and now things may not be going well at all.
You might have tried to start a relationship or become more than friends but you went way too fast and therefore scared the person off. You cannot force someone to be in a relationship with you.
If you do manage to rush someone, it’s going to end badly. Sometimes it happens quickly and other times it happens later down the road but the longer it goes on, the more it will hurt.
If you’re in a relationship but you haven’t been “tending to your garden,” then your partner may have started to pull away from you. They don’t feel cared for and think that you’ve neglected them.
This card can also indicate unrequited love. If you have feelings for someone that isn’t showing interest or isn’t investing in you, it’s because they aren’t on the same page and you should probably move on.
5. Finances, Job, And Career With The Seven Of Pentacles Card (Upright)
Of course, when you’re asking about a job or money and get the Seven of Pentacles, it means that you’ve taken the right steps to rake in the bucks when the time comes.
It doesn’t mean you’ll get immediate money but it rather means that with time, it will come to you when it’s meant to. When starting a new job, it will take time before you get benefits or the hours you want.
Get your foot in the door and show them your very best. It may mean that growth will happen for you but you have to wait your turn.
Manifesting the job or career of your dreams is also possible when this card comes up. You absolutely can start manifesting what it is you really want and the Universe will bring it to you at the right time.
If you’re into investments, then start out with a small amount and let it grow rather than putting a huge chunk of your money down on something you don’t know will rise or fall.
Success comes with careful planning and taking the time needed to see it through. This card confirms that things will be looking up for you if you just wait a bit longer.
6. Finances, Job, And Career With The Seven Of Pentacles Card (Reversed)
Good will not come to those who are sitting on their butts. If you started a project and haven’t been actually tending to it, then you will fail or will get less than what you had hoped.
Slacking at work will not do you any favors either. The bosses are watching you and seeing you on your phone chatting. Yep, you’re busted. No raise or bonus for you this time around.
Procrastination on projects won’t help you either. If you have your own business, then you’re not doing what it takes to have what you want.
If you’re looking for work, then you may be looking in the wrong places or talking to the wrong people. Ask for some advice and find out how you can make it right.
Perhaps the company you are with is comfortable but isn’t where you can grow. This card says you’re not getting what you are worth so you need to decide if you will stick with it or not.
7. The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card As A Person (Upright)
The Seven of Pentacles Tarot card person is the type who works hard, sees their projects through, and sometimes doesn’t have much time to have fun. They’re watching their success grow.
This person may have their own business or be building an empire for success. They have their mind more on work than they do on almost everything else which makes them less accessible.
In some cases, it can indicate a person who is planning for their retirement. They’re stowing away all the harvest they get from their efforts for the future.
The Seven of Pentacles person is self-sufficient and independent but sometimes lacks patience. In love, they may be the type that doesn’t “need” anyone but would rather like to have someone.
If you come across this person, you may find them to be a bit too focused on other things rather than you. You may not be their priority. They also probably don’t appreciate spontaneity – planning is their way.
8. The Seven Of Pentacles Card As A Person (Reversed)
I’m not going to lie to you, the reversed Seven of Pentacles person is a bit too laid back. They rush in where they want but then blow off plans or people when it suits them.
They may have too much fun, unlike the upright card. They aren’t investing in their future and are just letting the importance of life or love pass them by.
Either they rush into a relationship or they let it drag on for so long it goes nowhere or ends up making the two unhappy.
Being as nice as I can, this person can sometimes be a bit of a flake. They make plans and don’t stick to them.
Basically, the reversed Seven of Pentacles person is the polar opposite of the upright. They think they can take care of themselves but really, they aren’t motivated to take care of business.
This person believes that everything they need will just land in their lap without any effort. They don’t realize that even when you manifest, you still have to take action.
9. Advice From The Seven Of Pentacles Card In A Reading
The advice from the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card is that you need to start things slowly, nurture them, grow, and don’t try to hurry things along. Trying to speed things up will not make you prosperous.
Everything comes when it’s time but you absolutely have to step up to the plate and do what is required for the success or the love you really want.
Don’t rush in and think you’ll have all you ever dreamed of. You will have what you want to harvest, but only if you were actually putting in energy and time.
Success is coming so don’t give up now! If you put off what you can do now for tomorrow, then you may be too busy tomorrow to tend to it.
Look at the life you really want, manifest it, and then take the steps to make sure that you are taking care of your dreams.
No more procrastination!
Even in reverse, it’s warning you against trying to hurry things and telling you not to be a lazy bun. The early bird truly does get the worm and that’s what this card is trying to tell you.
10. The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card As Feelings
The feelings that are associated with the Seven of Pentacles would be optimism, hope, and a readiness to flow forward. This is especially true if these feelings are for you.
They want to build something solid and beautiful with you if you are willing. They are willing to take the time to be sure it will grow the way it should instead of rushing it.
Now on the other side of this, the person could be feeling pressured or wants something different from you. They might feel chained down or stuck.
This is when you have to look at the cards that surround this one for a bit more information.
Again, this card may say the person feels as though they’re in the right place at the right time with you. If it’s you, then it’s confirmation of something you already know or feel.
11. The Seven Of Pentacles Card Meaning Regarding Children
Children represented by the Seven of Pentacles means that they are burning brightly. They know the importance of taking care of what they’re creating. Have you ever watched a child paint, draw, or color?
Once they learn how beautiful it can be, they’re fantastic at using their creative minds to make a work of art. They cherish what they’re doing and don’t try to hurry, as they know it will mess up their art.
They also learn that when they are not patient, things do not turn out as planned. A child with the upright Seven of Pentacles is a happy kid. If the card is reversed, then they may be out of step and lack patience.
This child may drag their feet when it comes to doing things they have to do. This kind of kid may have problems with school and with their grades.
In terms of pregnancy, if you’re asking if it’s a good time or if you are pregnant, the upright card will say it’s a great time to plan for it. Get your ducks in order and everything you need to have a baby.
The reversed card, of course, says that you aren’t ready yet and you should wait until another time when everything is right for you.
A healthy child is represented by the Seven of Pentacles, while a child who may become ill or already is represented by the reversed card.
12. Health And The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card
The upright Seven of Pentacles Tarot card meaning regarding health is good news! It means that you’re taking the steps you need to in order to heal from illness or prevent it.
You’re on track and wellness is underway for you. Stick with what is working and make sure your immunity is where it should be so that you can keep moving and shaking with your life!
Naturally, when the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card is reversed, it’s going to mean you aren’t taking the necessary steps for your health. You may be blowing off symptoms and not doing anything about it.
Maybe you’re procrastinating until it’s so bad it becomes an emergency. Don’t let it get to that point. Energize yourself somehow and start doing things to make your health the best it can be.
I understand that some folks hate going to the doctor but if you don’t, you are gambling with your health. Keep up with your checkups, medications, and advice!
Oh, and since the Seven of Pentacles is associated with the Zodiac sign Taurus, it could be telling you to look out for problems with your jaw, throat, teeth, and weakness to a cold or flu. Have your immune system checked as well as your thyroid.
Your ears may also be sensitive as well as your tonsils. So, getting this card could make you aware of any of these problems whether you are a Taurus or another sign. Just keep an eye on it.
13. The Seven Of Pentacles Card Answer “Yes” Or “No”
The Seven of Pentacles Tarot card is polarized as when it’s upright, it’s very positive and therefore means yes when you ask a question.
When it’s reversed it’s going to mean no, because it requires you to do more before you make a decision or take action.
This is true especially when you only pull one card. If you pull other cards that surround this one, then you need to see what they mean in relevance to the question as it gives you a bit more detail.
14. The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card In Position
You can always get a message by just pulling one card such as a card of the day. You can use it as a yes or no reading as well. But there are times where you want a little more than this.
Since there are so many Tarot card spreads and layouts to choose from in the enclosed booklets that come with the cards; you need to choose.
I want to give you an example of how a card in certain positions will play out in a reading. Just keep in mind that the cards in front of it and behind it will add to the story or answer.
Right now, let’s take a look at a simple three-card spread. It’s to the point and gives a direct answer.
Check this out…
The Seven of Pentacles in Past Position:
You recently did something that put good things into motion for yourself. You planted seeds of success with the right timing. You planted an idea or came up with an excellent goal.
You will definitely benefit from what you’ve started with time and great nurturing. Whether it’s love or business, success will follow. Just give it time.
The reversal of Seven of Pentacles means that you recently blew off an opportunity or person that had real potential for you. You just didn’t feel up to it or didn’t want to put the effort in.
The Seven of Pentacles in Present Position:
Right now, you have some fantastic ideas, you’re motivated, ready, and you want to start taking steps in the right direction in love or in business. You may have accepted a new position or job.
The money is going to be there in your future because you’re doing what you should be. Rewards in finances or in love are definitely going to come from putting in the time and energy.
Reversed, this means that you’re not seeing the bigger picture and are laying back instead of jumping into action. Either you’re being lazy about it or you’re trying to rush things and causing everything to fall apart.
The Seven of Pentacles in Future Position:
There are amazing opportunities coming up for the taking. Prepare yourself, work hard, and do some serious manifesting. Whatever you want in life can be yours if you put the effort in.
If you’re asking about a relationship, this card says it really can go somewhere or become more serious than it is now. Stay optimistic and enthusiastically patient.
The reversal of this card means that you may not cultivate what you’re after very well. You have to slow down and take your time otherwise things become chaotic or just don’t work out. Don’t get complacent!

16. Astrology And The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card
As I mentioned in the health section, the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card is associated with the Zodiac sign Taurus. There is hard work, effort, stability, and growth in the person who pulls this card.
Perhaps it’s for a client you’re reading for, instead of yourself. This may represent them or someone in their life that’s important to them. Either way, the Taurus personality is here including the stubborn and lazy part.
While they’re hard-working, they can become lazy about mundane things. They’ll work hard at their job but cook dinner? No! They’ll order out or let you cook instead.
Taurus is ruled by Venus which is optimistic. They really want love and stability in their lives. They are true to whom they choose to be with as well as loyal to their jobs.
The negative points (the card in reverse) are their inability to be patient while expecting others to be patient with them. They may dive into a relationship they aren’t ready for.
It’s possible they’re so comfortable with the job they have that they don’t see opportunities for something better to land in their lap. They’re focused on what they’re already doing.
17. The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card In Numerology
Numerology is another amazing way to interpret who someone is or what they’re meant to do. With the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card, the number seven is heavy.
In Numerology, the number seven brings practicality, creativity, wisdom, and depth; it is a very positive force. This sounds about right for the Seven of Pentacles, I’d say.
The number seven has wisdom and knowledge that can be shared with the right people at the right time.
If you happen to have the Number 7 Life Path, then your purpose in life is to experience spiritual growth. To do that, you have to enjoy life, see it for what it is, accept what you cannot change, and embrace the things you can.
The number seven person is deep and connects via spiritual means. They look for the deeper meaning in everything or everyone. Expect this kind of person to ask a lot of questions.
One more thing… the number seven may indicate to you a time frame such as 7 days, 7 weeks, 7 months, or the month of July (the 7th month of the year). Keep that in mind if it ends up being the last card in the layout.
Sometimes people want to know when something may happen so if you keep this in mind, you’ll be able to intuitively feel what it may be. Looking at the other cards in the layout will help also.
18. When You Keep Pulling The Seven Of Pentacles Card
Why do you keep seeing the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card every time you pull the cards out? There has to be a reason! You’re correct – there is an answer.
When this card keeps coming out, it means that it’s sort of a heads up that you need to get everything in order, accept what is happening, take the job, or say yes to romance.
You’re planting the seeds for your future success with optimism and hope. Remember that! If you’ve forgotten, then this card is a reminder to you of what you stand to gain with effort.
Now, if you keep getting this card reversed, then it’s warning you to stop putting things off that you can actually do now. Don’t keep blowing someone off that deserves your attention.
It may be time for you to stop procrastinating and take some action. Commit to the person you’re dating; they’re worth it.
Of course, a reversal may also tell you that the other person isn’t that committed and you should possibly let go or find out more. Look at the cards that surround it to get more details.
19. Symbols For The Seven Of Pentacles Tarot Card
Looking at the Rider Waite’s Seven of Pentacles card, there is a man holding his rake with a hopeful look on his face while he looks at his crop that is really growing.
He knows that soon he will prosper. He will get the fruits of his labor. The seven pentacles are growing in numbers. He’s done a lot to get this far and is proud of himself, just as he should be.
If you are considering getting a Seven of Pentacles Tarot card tattoo, then you might want to get something symbolic just like this card. A plant, animal, or project that is in growth is a good representation.
20. Spirituality And The Seven Of Pentacles Card
The spiritual takeaway from the Seven of Pentacles Tarot card is learning to be patient with yourself, with others, and with the process of your work. Don’t stop putting in effort just because it’s not growing as fast as you’d like.
Great love takes time. If you rush it, it may sour or both people end up hurt. Stop, listen, talk, and get to know your potential partner or current partner. Is it time to consider planning the next phase of your relationship?
Don’t ever feel like you need it RIGHT NOW. The truth is, the Universe provides for us at the right time, in the right place, and with the right people. Once you accept that, you’ll be in excellent shape to receive it.
The Universe isn’t going to throw stuff or people at you that aren’t for the best in your life. Just know that as long as you keep working at it, you’ll get the best of the best.
Whether you’re planting a new crop, blossoming a new idea or goal, or starting a new relationship; you’re going to do well. If you’re about to make a commitment or strengthen one, it’s a good time!
I truly hope this helps you understand the beautiful meaning behind the Seven of Pentacles.
As with each Tarot card, when you get to understand them, you can actually start to feel the meaning so that when you flip them over, you know what it’s saying to you for yourself or for others.
It’s then that you piece together the story relative to the question. The Tarot provides SO much.
