“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”
We live in a word that moves faster and faster every day… a world that praises instant success and excels in making any success look as if it happened overnight because of the sensation value. It can be very discouraging when we look at this and then look at our own life and circumstances.
The 7 of Pentacles celebrates slowing down. To truly master anything, time is required in spades… so start digging where you stand. Dig with focused effort and perseverance. Don’t look around at what others have already achieved. Keep your mind on the dirt and your own dream.
Your dream, until you realise it, will go through many stages of growth, just like a plant… So where are you today? Take stock of where you are and what you have, as well as what still needs to come together for your dream to be made manifest. Vow to be faithful to the process of manifestation.
Affirmation: “I give myself the gift of perseverance.”
7 of Pentacles Prayer
Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for bringing together all the elements for my goal to be achieved. Grant me wisdom to patiently nurture that which is now fragile or not yet ripe. So mote it be!

The 7 of Pentacles in Love and Relationships
This is the patience card in the deck! Difficulty is implied and whatever this concerns, you can count on resolving the situation or achieving your goal will take time. Physical limitations in terms of abundance, time and space are indicated.
What you planted a while back might have been overrun with weeds. You have a choice: you can either buckle down and do the (belated) weeding now and hope to rescue a future harvest or risk losing it all.
If this describes your relationship, you need to take time out and put some serious effort into getting things back on track. Remind yourself why you fell in love with your partner in the first place. Rekindle romance by re-introducing sensual pleasures and perhaps revisiting some of your favourite haunts from when you first started seeing each other.
Right now it probably feels like you’re on a 10 mile hike through the Sahara and forgot to pack your water bottle. If someone who didn’t forget theirs passes by, don’t be afraid to ask for sip. That way you’ll make it to the next oasis.
