7 Of Pentacles As Feelings: Upright & Reversed Explained


The 7 of Pentacles is a tarot card that mainly represents manifestation and hard work paying off.

When it comes to feelings, or how someone feels about you, there’s an interesting interpretation to uncover.

It’s important to know what these feelings mean because they can help you understand why people behave in certain ways, and give insight into their motivations.

In this blog post I will give you an in-depth explanation of the 7 of Pentacles with regards to feelings in both the upright and reversed position!

7 Of Pentacles As Feelings

When it comes to feelings, the 7 of Pentacles often represents someone who feels willing to move forwards with you, but they are still unsure about their feelings. This could be because it’s early days in your friendship or relationship and the person wants to take things slow.

They may be questioning their feelings and whether or not they’re reciprocated.

Even though the 7 of Pentacles indicates they’re interested, they want to tread carefully and take their time before committing.

It’s also about someone who wants to move things forward, but is scared of being hurt by you.

The positive way to look at this is that they want to move things forward with you, but their fear prevents them from doing it.

This person will want to take small steps and assess the relationship from time to time in order to make sure you are on the same page.

It may take some time for the relationship to grow and blossom into something more, but in the long run, this can provide a great basis.

In other words, they want to make sure you both feel the same way about each other and know for sure that it’s going somewhere.

Someone who represents the Seven of Pentacles in upright position can often be described as a very logical person who doesn’t easily let him or herself get led by their emotions.

They may be hesitant to express their feelings because they want everything to be perfect.

They may also be feeling shy around you and not very good at expressing themselves in a romantic way.

7 Of Pentacles Reversed As Feelings

When the 7 of Pentacles comes up in reversed position, this usually indicates feelings of doubt and hesitation. The person may not be sure about you, or they could be second-guessing their own feelings. They may be reluctant to commit or move forwards with you.

This could either be due to fear of the unknown or not feeling ready for something new.

The other possibility, and this is more likely if the card comes up alongside another reversed position tarot card, such as The Tower, is that the person may have feelings of being trapped or held back.

They could feel like they’re not in control of their own life and this is causing them to hesitate to move towards you in a romantic way.

The reversed position can also indicate that someone is feeling used by you (or the other way around). They may feel like you’re taking advantage of them and they’re not getting anything in return.

Often though, this hesitation comes from the person’s own insecurities. They may feel like they’re not worthy of your love, or that you could do better than them.

In order to get back into the positive flow with the Seven of Pentacles in reverse, both people will need to work on their inner selves and improve how they feel about themselves.

It is important to establish a sense of trust and understanding between each-other if this card appears reversed in your reading.

When there’s a third party situation involved, your person might be trying to push you away because they don’t want any kind of commitment, or perhaps their partner doesn’t want you around.

You may be perceived as a threat to the relationship, or perhaps they just think that you’re not right for them and they don’t want to drag things along any further.
