This card represents a lost investment, or something that failed to come to fruition. Saturn in Taurus. Netzach (long suffering patience) in the realm of earth.
It’s much grimmer than the RWS Seven of Pentacles, which I have always associated with a momentary pause in our labors to take stock.
That version of the card turned up two years ago today, and here’s what I wrote.
Seven of Pentacles today. Let us pause for a moment to reflect on the fruits of our labor, the good Earth, and the Grace of God, whence comes every perfect gift.
This Thoth version of the card is a failed crop, a lost investment, a miscarriage. Grim, indeed.
I need to remember that even when we suffer loss, our work is never really wasted. We live. We love. We learn. We leave a legacy.
