What does the Seven of Pentacles card mean in a love reading?

The Seven of Pentacles points to the need for patience in love. While whirlwind romances can be thrilling (and have their place!), often they thrive in summer but wither away when winter comes. Lasting love may be slower, but it’s built to withstand the lean times.

If you’re in a loving relationship and the Seven of Pentacles comes up, you might take it as a message that you have something special here, even if you find yourself wishing there were more fireworks. Do you have ample evidence that you’re in a mutually beneficial partnership? Now’s a good time to express gratitude for what you have. Know that there are more fun times ahead, too.

For those who are single (and perhaps feeling discouraged about it) the Seven of Pentacles gently encourages you to keep being patient. That doesn’t mean being passive. For example, rather than shopping for a soulmate, get out and circulate with people who share your interests. Friendships can fill a good part of your tanks—and put you in a good space to be introduced to someone who is right for you.

Whether you’re in a process of healing from a past relationship, or simply waiting for the right connection, this minor arcana card lets you know that you are indeed on your way to something new.
