The Seven of Pentacles represents the consistent progression of one’s financial resources. It is a card that urges you to be patient and practical.
Sometimes with money, there is a lot of labour before you start to see the reward. That's how it is with the Seven of Pentacles.
You may find yourself almost exhausted from the amount of work you're doing but still worried about the outcome.
You may have sleepless nights where you worry about whether you did the right thing or whether you are wasting your time but these fears are pretty groundless.
What is being built is an enterprise that is satisfying to your soul and will eventually fill your pockets.
Mental and physical exhaustion is indicated when the Seven of Pentacles is reversed.
Again, you've been working hard for little reward but in this case, there is no joy and you can't continue.
This is a time to take a break and reassess the situation. You'll find that your attitude will change soon and you'll be able to move in a different, more productive direction soon. Right now, you're just exhausted.
