Diligence is the mother of good fortune.

Seven of Pentacles

The tarot card of the day is the Seven of Pentacles.

A farmer leans on his hoe while looking toward his bountiful crops. His attitude suggests that he has been working hard to achieve this success. He is steadfast and reliable. If he starts something, he finishes it.

This person is hardworking, diligent, and persistent. However, there seems to be something else behind his eyes. Perhaps he feels tired and worn out from having spent so much time and effort cultivating this beautiful patch of land.

If you are feeling lazy, this card tells you to buck up. Of course, you don't want to look like a slacker, but you're probably better off doing what needs to be done rather than sitting around waiting for inspiration.

Be Patient – Everything Is Coming Together

The Seven of Pentacles represents a situation where things come together, and progress is made. This card often appears when we are working hard towards something that we have set our mind to do. We are making steady progress, even though sometimes it feels like little headway is being made.

In some cases, the Seven of Pentacles can signify that we are about to make a significant breakthrough in our life. It's not always easy to start, but everything will fall into place once we begin.

Take, for example, your mortgage payment. If you have a loan or other debt you need to pay off, this card might indicate that your financial situation will soon improve. So, continue working hard, and soon you will be mortgage-free.

Avoiding Risky Business Is a Wise Move

The Seven of Pentacles reversed indicates that you're doing all right at your current job and might want to think twice about making a risky decision. This is probably not the time to just quit your job and go.

It's easy to get distracted by thoughts of how great it would be if you had more money or a better position, but consider that your current situation is providing all you need.

The Seven of Pentacles is traditionally associated with gambling. A person who plays the stock market or bets on sports events often gets this card, as does someone who gambles recklessly. You are warned that you could lose everything because of a foolish act. How you handle this situation will decide the rest of your life.

This serves as a helpful reminder to begin controlling your impulsive behavior. Be careful not to let your emotions get the better of you. Instead, focus on the work you have right now.

Learn to Live Within Your Means

You don't want to rush into things. The farmer on the Seven of Pentacles enjoys much-earned rest after a long day of labor. He is happy with his current situation. He knows he earns his rewards because of his hours and efforts to reap the benefits.

He has now enjoyed the fruits of his labor. This card suggests that you do the same. Take a break and go on vacation. Treat your loved ones with dinners and thoughtful gifts. Don't forget to give back to your community.

If someone whispers to you that the grass is greener in the neighboring field, it would be best if you ignore them. Your best interests may be jeopardized if you do what others want you to do. Greed will only lead to harmful consequences.

You are advised just to enjoy the moment. There is no need to accomplish more. Enjoy the journey instead of trying to reach another ambitious goal.

If you're still indecisive, it could mean you're unsure how things will turn out. Therefore, it is probably best to wait and see what happens.

Avoid anything that encourages you to act impulsively with your money. For example, you do not have to buy every product that catches your attention on Instagram.

Instead, avoid temptation by unfollowing brands on social media, unsubscribing from marketing emails, and turning off push notifications.
