Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Pentacles, from the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot, by Melanie Marquis, artwork by Scott Murphy
Seven Of Pentacles
Card Description: “Waiting for efforts to bear fruit; the querent’s steady, careful work and patience is building up and they will soon see results; working toward a good future; patience is building up and they will soon see results; working towards a good future; patience is challenged but holding, success will be attained after delay; a long-awaited bounty is soon to come; waiting for an expected bit of money; a time of tending and nurturing; responsibility; a private plan or idea held dear; pouring your blood, sweat and tears into a project or person; taking good care of something precious.”
Seven Of Pentacles As Challenger: “An effort finally comes to fruition; a time of harvest; a neglected endeavour needs attention; a period of delay is ending; impatience impedes potential growth; opportunity; the wait is over; a failed harvest; plans and projects fail to pay off; not getting an equal return for the work one has put in.”
Magkical Uses: “Use in spells and rituals to represent the idea of bounty and harvest, the fruits of your labour and the treasures of your toil. Move the card quickly three times around in a small clockwise circle to speed along the harvest.” (**if you do not have the card, visualize yourself doing this exercise.)*

This is a message of patience paying off. Don’t let the ego mind get in the way of your success, wasting precious energies worrying and fretting that things aren’t going as planned. Things are coming together, even if you do not have the proof of it quite yet, remain committed to your cause. It is so easy for us to lose hope or to get distracted, spending energy focused on what could go wrong instead of what is going right. Take back your power by deciding that everything is going to work out exactly as it should and all you have to do is stay the course towards successful outcomes.
We are so much more powerful than we realize, individually and collectively. And yet we get so easily off track. We want the quick fix, we want things to fall into place and we get impatient if we feel we have done our share and the results are elusive. Then we enter the dangerous territory of compromise. We lower our standards, worrying that we may have set them too high. We look at others and feel like maybe what was supposed to be ours has been taken from us and given to someone else.
We need perspective and we need faith. We need to know with conviction that what we have been manifesting is absolutely possible for us, if we hold our intention to be for the Highest Good Of All. Maybe the Universe will tweak it a little. Maybe it’s taking a bit longer than expected. Maybe there have been curve balls along the way.
Have faith. And know that what you desire to manifest is on it’s way.
