The Seven of Pentacles is known as the patience card. Traditionally, a young man leans on a hoe while surveying the pentacles on a vine before him. He has completed his work and is waiting for the harvest. While modern Tarot readers may not identify with this image, it is easy to put yourself in the place of the young girl in Today’s Journey Tarot’s Seven of Earth. It is a cold winter day and she sits by the mailbox waiting for something to arrive. She would not be waiting here unless she had done whatever was necessary for the delivery to occur. Now it is just a matter of waiting patiently.
