It has been said that hindsight is 20/20. Looking back at the past, especially when there have been major accomplishments, and contemplating starting a process all over again from the beginning can be daunting. The seven of pentacles speaks to the nostalgia one can evoke and even embroider upon as, with a heavy sigh, we prepare for the work needed and required of us to make the issues at out feet turn out as gloriously as those of the past.
Maybe it’s because I have just finished teaching classes for the spring term and must now administer the final and prepare for the summer term that I am relating so closely to the seven of pentacles. There’s nothing wrong with celebrating a job well done; it’s only a problem if you get stuck there and neglect the NOW items on the agenda.
This card shows up when you need to be reminded gently that you are not the same person you were when you started the earlier project. You did it once, and you can do it again. The matter at hand deserves your full attention, and you have every right to expect stellar results this time that may even exceed the earlier ones.
