He delights in the sight of his bountiful harvest, represented as Pentacles, his reward for the time and energy invested.

One fruit even lies right at his feet a little away from the main plant, revealing that his successes will continue to spread all by themselves and bring him even more happiness.

From the moment of sowing, the man has nurtured his plant, witnessing every change from the first leaves to the now plump fruits, realizing how much his actions have brought about a change in his immediate environment.

He has followed a precise plan of how to care for his plant and has devoted himself to it in all weathers.

On closer inspection, however, he seems very tired and exhausted and must take good care of himself so that his work does not consume him and he is not able to enjoy his success properly in the end.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed is a sign that you have to accept a heavy loss in one of your plans, despite many efforts on your part. Unforeseen events can hit us hard and throw us off track.

Especially if you failed to achieve a goal and start from scratch, this can be very frustrating and demotivating.

Depending on how high your losses are, you should carefully consider whether it is worthwhile to invest more time and energy in your project or redefine your goals.

Every loss you suffer carries the seeds of renewal, as you can start all over again and use your past experiences to reap a richer harvest of your efforts this time.

Furthermore, the Seven of Pentacles Reversed reveals that you are on the verge of burnout because you are sacrificing too much for your projects.

The achievement of your goals demands a lot of endurance and strength from you, with the danger of gradually neglecting other areas of your life.

In addition, you allow yourself fewer and fewer rest periods, because you fear that every break would set you back again in your progress.

Maintaining this enormous workload will harm your health and can lead to total exhaustion. Practice patience and allow yourself rest periods so that you can reap and enjoy the fruits of your efforts in the future.

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed symbolizes a hasty and short-sighted approach to trying to achieve your goals. If you rush your plans because you want to see quick results, you risk damaging the tender buds of your progress so far.

Such a hurry will lengthen your wait to reap the fruits of your labor, so there is a risk that you will discard your original goals and move on to new endeavors.

Therefore, do not look too short-sightedly at your progress so far, but always keep your long-term goal in mind and practice patience and planful action.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Tarot Love Meaning


The Seven of Pentacles Reversed Tarot card reveals to you as a single person that you are rushing into short-term relationships. As a result, you often experience rejection when you get to know someone better and find yourself alone again.

You may be afraid of being alone, which is why you quickly get involved in a love affair without really getting to know your counterpart.

Especially in love, patience will bring you more often to your dream partner than constant relationship changes. Let love run its course and look carefully with whom you want to try a new partnership.

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed warns you of an overload in the search for a partner. You don’t want to be alone anymore and use all your strength and energy to find a new love for yourself.

But in doing so, you neglect other areas of your life and hardly have any opportunities to recharge your batteries.

If you are too exhausted, this will hurt your charisma, making flirting much more complicated. Allow yourself some rest to dedicate yourself to the partner search fresh and with new energy.


In a partnership, the Seven of Pentacles Reversed represents an impending loss within your life together. Despite your joint efforts, your relationship seems to be low-yielding for you and rather consumes you both instead of giving you new energy and impulses.

Sometimes you realize only after a certain period of living together that you and your partner are not a good match.

If your relationship is not bearing fruit and making you happy, you should consider going separate ways.

The card of the Seven of Pentacles Reversed symbolizes that you as a couple are looking too short-sightedly at your relationship, not assessing well the long-term consequences of your actions.

Any fundamental change in your life together, such as an addition to the family or a move, must be well thought out from the start and should not be the result of short-term emotions.

Short-sightedness can lead to a lot of stress in a partnership. Without a long-term strategy and neglecting the consequences of your actions, you get lost in your plans sooner or later.

Therefore, it is better to sit down together before a major joint project and consider how much energy and time you will probably have to invest for your project to bear fruit and plan your next steps accordingly.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Health Meaning

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed warns you not to use extreme means to improve your health. If you hardly eat anything or do any physical exercise, you will lose a few kilos quickly.

However, such behavior can damage your body and thus your health. It is crucial that you do something for your health and work with your body and not against it.

Furthermore, the Seven of Pentacles Reversed warns you not to fall for quick promises of the health industry. That you can lose ten kilos in a week with a power shake or similar is rather unrealistic.

Improving your health is a lifelong process, so you can take your time to achieve your goals.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Career Meaning

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed reveals that you should not be too hasty in your career goals. An application for a new job or a salary negotiation will not succeed without good preparation.

Take enough time in advance to plan your plan accordingly and make arrangements.

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed warns you not to overspend in your job. If you live only for your work and have hardly any regeneration, there is a danger of burnout.

Be aware that the pressure to perform mostly comes from yourself and that you decide whether or not to give in to it. Devote more time to your interests, family or friends, so that you can regain your strength and get some distance from your working life.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Finances/Money Meaning

The Seven of Pentacles Reversed warns you not to invest your money too shortsightedly. While some investments may tempt you with quick and high returns, the devil is often in the details.

You should rather set up a long-term savings plan. This way you have a manageable risk and can build your wealth over the years.

Another meaning of the Seven of Pentacles Reversed is an impending financial loss. This can include a pay cut or a bad investment.

Financial losses of this kind affect everyone in life. Therefore, set aside a nest egg for such bad times.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Destiny Meaning

The Seven of the Pentacles Reversed warns you not to be too hasty in achieving your goals. Otherwise, there is a danger that your plans will vanish into thin air because they do not have a stable foundation.

Take your time when planning your projects to ensure they will be successful in the long run.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Personality

In the reversed position, the Seven of Pentacles reveals a person who often spends himself. Without a sensible division of his own forces, the person quickly reaches his limits.

Moreover, the card symbolizes a rather short-sighted way of thinking. Such a character does not look at long-term consequences, which can quickly get him into trouble.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Tarot Past/Future


You are still struggling with a loss from your past. But such preoccupation with failures only costs unnecessary energy, which would be better spent elsewhere.

The exhaustion of the past months just won’t go away. Reflect on the things that have given you new strength in the past.


An overhasty approach endangers your future plans to a great extent. It is better to pause for a moment on your way so as not to jeopardize your progress.

If you only pay attention to the short-term consequences of your actions, you will soon experience a rude awakening.

Reversed Seven of Pentacles Tarot Card – Yes or No

Do not think too short-term in this matter and do not lose sight of your goal.

A no can save you from too much exhaustion so that you still have enough energy in reserve for other undertakings. Don’t worry! You will soon get new opportunities.
