The Seven of Pentacles
Upright - Promising projects that fail. A warning not to rest upon one's laurels as success is only attainable through continued hard work. Material success may be possible but the nettle must be grasped. Previous past effort wasted through inertia in the present. Reaping no reward from charitable work.
Ill Dignified or Reversed - Self induced money worries. Bankruptcy, possibly gambling, promising circumstances that end in failure. Financial insecurity.
