Seven of Pentacles says you are experiencing a cycle of change that will affect your income for the better. Break through the blocks that prevent you from achieving your highest potential. Free your talents by shedding the weight of any psychological or emotional resistance. Move through your old fears of failure – evaluate the results of your efforts and assess your mistakes so that you can learn from them. Be patient – this cycle is changing and re-arranging your life. You will know growth through good honest effort and hard work. Plan your next move during this pause in activity. You are in the process of making a major decision. There will be a welcome change in your financial situation – so stop worrying! Meaningful work gives more than material benefits – you grow as you experience a moment of looking back with satisfaction on something you have accomplished, knowing that what you have built has reached the point that it can grow by itself and you can step back from it without collapsing it. Use the energy of your “fears” to propel you forward – concentrate your strength – act with will and determination.
