The Seven of Pentacles in the Tarot card reading represents reward, change in the direction, and assessment of goals. This card does not stand for the end of your goals, but it signifies more of a time where you have to pause for a while and re-think your strategy. The description of the minor Seven of Pentacles tarot card has a man who looks as though he has taken a break from working and is taking time out to admire his work.

He has worked hard to ensure that the crop of this year will be fruitful and while he cannot touch his harvest currently, he chooses to invest in long-term rewards. With his hard work and dedication, he has hope that his crop will grow and be able to yield long-term rewards.
