Welcome to almost every day of your life. (Your very own soap opera: The Days of Your Life . . . . )
7 of Pentacles is all about the decisions we make every day. It’s about the boring stuff we have to do to maintain our lives.
And, if we’re wise, it’s about the moments we take to stop and assess what’s going on.
All along the way, in any of our projects, we need to make myriad decisions about the next step to take.
If we’ve sown our garden, we need to check in regularly to see what needs attention. To water or not? Pests to be handled? Is what we’ve done so far working? What do we do next?
And some of those decisions are difficult choices; we choose one direction and it closes off others. Daedalus’ difficult decision between the desires of the gods and the desires of his patron is illustrated in the Mythic Tarot 7 of Pentacles.
Again, we do it every day. Something at work needs our attention, which means we’ve got less time with our kids. Our child needs surgery, which means we can’t take on the project we were looking forward to at work. And our lifes’ paths take shape.
The promise of 7 of Pentacles is that, if we attend to the small decisions along the way, we’ll reach our goals. And in much less time than we might think.
Pause, assess, take action, and trust your choices!
