The Seven of Pentacles ~ Letting Go of Expectations!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Seven of Pentacles (Coins), representing: Hard work, effort, long-term success, resignation, and fear of failure. Sometimes it’s easy to see life in black and white: good/bad, happy/sad, rich/poor…but when we step back from judgment, from expectation, the world becomes much more colorful and filled with possibilities!
The 7 of Pents carries the energy of hard work and diligence. It’s about the long days and nights that often come with creating success in our lives. This card indicates a time to stay committed and focused on your goals. To not give into discouragement, even if you’re not yet quite where you want to be. If fact, resignation (i.e. giving up), is the key danger of this path!
This card is a reminder that, in a world where instant success is the mantra, our flowers don’t always bloom exactly when and how we want them to—dammit! Time to embrace Divine Right Timing, the idea that all things happen in their own right time and moment. The more you let go of expectation, and instead dig into the meaning and fulfillment of the work at hand, the more forward movement you will experience.
At the same time, if something in your life is truly not bearing fruit, it may be time to let go, and instead focus on more fruitful endeavors. But remember—there’s rarely an overnight success, it’s those who are willing to keep walking the path that ultimately find the greatest rewards!
Wishing you a Successful Week!
